Indian cyclist Fayis Ashraf Ali, who is on a solo ride from the southern state of Kerala to London, was accorded several receptions in Doha last week during his transit of Qatar.
Organised with the slogan 'From Heart to Heart' and with the objective of spreading the message of love and peace among the world population, the cycling journey is estimated to take at least 450 days during which Ali is expected to cover 30,000km in 35 countries and two continents before reaching his destination.
