Also, during this remarkable journey he will be connecting with the locals to spread awareness on the importance of Girl Child Education.

Speaking to the media before his odyssey for a cause, GD Vishnu Raam said:

" I am truly delighted and excited to begin my car expedition to the four corners of India. My passion for sports and fitness has brought me this far and I wish more and more youngsters take to the roads to set their fitness goals, either by running, cycling or driving and also achieve them in earnest. In the process they should also strive to give back to society in whatever way they can. This endeavour of mine is not only an attempt to create a Guinness World Record, but also to support 'Girl Child Education', a social cause that I strongly believe in. My inspiration stems from Dr BR Ambedkar's advocacy for Women's right to equal education and how he believed that education could help women achieve not only their own empowerment, but also empowerment of others through them. A Chennai based eminent artist has very artfully sketched the campaign logo- 'Girl Child Education and Dr BR Ambedkar'. The funds raised as part of this expedition will go for the development and enhancement of girl child education in Government schools of Chennai and Coimbatore".
