Somen Debnath is in Baghdad now. He is staying at the Indian Embassy. I met him at the residence of the Indian Ambassador yesterday. I came to know of his arrival to Baghdad a few days back through Prashant. Debnath hails from West Bengal (India).
He is cycling around the world and has now reached Iraq after covering 77 countries. He started his journey in 2004 and plans to complete in 2020. His mission is to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS.
After the reception and dinner at the Indian Embassy to welcome the Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid in Baghdad on June 19, we had a nice chat for quite a long time. He was narrating his experiences in different country.
His next destination is Kuwait. Debnath is awaiting visa from them. Otherwise he will go to UAE from Iraq. He already got the UAE visa. He is blogging his journey & experiences.
Today Debnath came to our house in the afternoon. We had dinner together. It was nice chatting with him.
Wish Somen Debnath good luck, safe travel, and success of his mission.
