IIT-Bombay graduate Sushil Reddy (27), who had embarked on a 7,500 km journey on a solar-powered bicycle designed by himself on May 8, finally completed his mission earlier this week. Reddy, who obtained a dual degree in Energy Science in 2013, was working in a campus start-up when he decided to take up the campaign of solar awareness. “The aim of my 79-day journey was to educate and unite people over a cause that will dominate the future energy needs,” an ecstatic Reddy told dna after recovering from the tiresome journey. He rode across Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh to showcase the application and potential of solar energy through his ride.
