Mangaluru : Expressing his gratefulness to Mangalorean.com for our earlier support and wishes that helped Him to successfully accomplish the Cycling campaigns in India and Malaysia over the last few years, under Manipal umbrella, Professor SSS Shameem has once again requested Team Mangalorean to support him while he is on a mission cycling nearly 2000 km in 14 days covering the entire of Peninsula of Malaysia. “We could generate greater social awareness in various fields, and also raise good fund which was donated to Rotary International for social welfare and charitable causes”says Shameem.
Shameem further adds saying, “This year around, we are coming with the another edition for these mega projects on Social welfare by Manipal & Rotary. Rotary Kasih Manipal Cycling Campaign, is a fund-raising cycling campaign to cover entire of Peninsula Malaysia; i.e. 2,000 km in 14 days. Rotary International clubs from Malaysia (3300 / 3310), and India (3182) will join hands together to support MIU in this venture. This will serve as awareness campaign to support Rotary Kasih project: a Student Life Transformation Program. There can be no better cause than helping one needy child to be an educated gentleman of future. So, I am aiming to REPEAT my earlier successful attempt of solo cycling to cover the Entire of Mainland Malaysia, starting 27 July 2019. The Rotary Kasih Manipal (RKM) cycling campaign-2019 would focus on spreading awareness about Rotary Kasih program, and help raise fund for this”.
Through this event veteran cyclist Shameem aims to connect the community and the nation going inline to Rotary’s Theme for 2019 “Rotary Connects the World”. SSS Shameem who was a Assistant Professor of Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT), Manipal University, moved to Malaysia nearly two years, and presently he is a Assistant Prof., Dept. of Computer Engineering, School of Science & Engineering at Manipal International University, Nilai, Malaysia.Shameem loves cycling, and he is not just a recreational cyclist, rather a seasoned professional with loads of experience. He is a regular endurance athlete, with a vast experience of many Half-Marathons, Full-Marathons, 200/300/400 Km Cycling brevets; apart from regular rigorous training sessions.
Earlier he has attempted Solo Cycling journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, i.e.3,500 Kms in 23 days during Summer-2016; and also one Manipal University Campus Connect “Tour-de-Manipal” (Team cycling event) Manipal to Jaipur 2,500 km in 20 days during Winter-2016. This is apart from many other cycling events organized by different organizing bodies all across India, in past 4 years. To add more feathers to the cap, he planned for yet another attempt Okha (Gujarat) to Dibrugarh (Assam) Solo Cycling expedition, i.e. 3,400 km; and he decided to complete it in just 20 days during this Summer-2017. This was not for any record purpose, but to spread the message of Unity-&-Humanity in a Greener-&-Healthier way. These are just a few of his adventurous cycling feat .
By attempting such ‘crazy’ feats, Shameem just wants to prove that, “Nothing is impossible, if there is a will, and passion”. If one can do, then anybody else can; all that’s needed is a courage to attempt, with proper preparation and right planning. Also, he is trying to promote the message of “Live and Let Live”, in this current highly chaotic society. He backs the cause of “Being Human; the Human that God-Almighty created”, which he himself tries to follow to possible limit. He believes, “It’s okay, if you can’t make someone laugh; but don’t make one cry. Don’t be the REASON of PAIN to anybody.”
Proud-parents Sk. Habibun Bibi and Sk. Anwar Hossain are always his role-model and source of inspiration, for which he apologies with God-almighty for respecting them more than Him. He always starts planning for something bigger, unique and interesting for future- and Cycling 2000 kms covering Peninsula of Malaysia is yet another BIG FEAT! Team Mangalorean wishes Shameem all success in this cycling venture.
