Jammin thru India was the last leg of Jay Kannaiyan's incredible bike ride on his trusty 1998 Suzuki DR650, sanDRina. Jay sold his house and all his belongings (except what he needed for the road) and set out from Chicago in March 2010. After riding through 32 countries in Central and South America, he rode through Europe and crossed over to Africa. Ending that leg in Cape Town, Jay packed sanDRina in a crate and sent her off to Chennai. He came to India in February 2013 and his bike followed after clearing Customs in April. Jay then set out to discover India on sanDRina.
Jay set off from Chennai on April 30, blessed by his family deities. The journey took him first to his old school in Kodaikanal, from where he headed south to Kanyakumari. From this point, Jay traversed 10 Indian states and rode up the Himalayan passes to Ladakh, returning via Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir to New Delhi on June 11. With that, JamminGlobal, Jay's ambitious project made possible by sheer determination and meticulous planning, has come to a fruitful end.
Did he find Eudaimonia? That's for Jay to answer. So ask him!
