An old car named "Lal Bari" began its journey on its way to Britain to spread love and joy, and to represent unity and Indian values, says the car's Indian owner, Daman Thakuri.

Because the classic car is British-made, its owner thought of driving it to its original country. The trip began on August 28, and is expected to end on November 5.

3 generations and a 73 year old car
This trip - organized by three generations of one family - in a 73-year-old car, is the first of its kind to travel from India to its original homeland in Britain.

Daman Thakuri, the current owner of the car - which he named "Lal Pari" - narrated the details of the trip of a lifetime, its beginnings, the countries they will visit, in addition to the duration of this adventure.

“My parents bought a 1950 MG YT and we named it Lal Bari, which means (red angel),” Thakuri said.


He also explained what this car means to him and his entire family, and what their message is to the whole world.

Speaking to Anadolu, Thakuri said, "My mother used to tell me stories before bed, as we were always exposed to dangerous situations, and a red car would come to save us during the stories."

Describing the “source of the idea,” Thakuri said, “Because our car is British-made, we thought of driving it along the road to its original homeland.”

He added, "We are three generations of one family, trying to become the first Indians to take a car dating back to 1950, registered in India, to travel overland to the British capital, London."

Traveling 12 thousand kilometers and crossing 16 countries
This is the first time their beloved classic car will travel outside India, for a trip lasting a few weeks. The plan is to travel a distance of 12,000 km and cross 16 countries.

Thakuri (50 years old) set out from the city of Ahmedabad in the Indian state of Gujarat (northwest), and headed to Dubai on board a ship, then crossed into Iran and entered Turkey by land, and stopped in the Cappadocia region of the Nevsehir state (central Turkey).

Thakuri said, "My father, uncle, and I started leading Lal Bari successively from India until now, where we visited Dubai and Iran, and now we are in Turkey."

Moving on to their stop in Eastern Europe, their adventure will take them to Greece, Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Albania, then Montenegro and Croatia.

They will then cross Italy, France, Belgium and the Netherlands and reach the United Kingdom, within their sights.

Donate smiles
“We have given a lot for this car to get it running again,” Thakuri said, describing the excitement Lal Bari inspires wherever they go.

After passing through many communities during this trip, he said, "If people would provide more support for others, the world would be better off."

He added, "If you have money, you can donate it, but we have 'lal bari' and we donate smiles to people."


Car owner: The car aims to spread the message of love and joy (Anatolia)
Eternal memories
Thakuri described himself as "a common person who aims to spread the message of love and joy, represent unity and Indian values, and convey the message that people should follow their dreams and take care of their loved ones."

He stressed that "life is not always easy, and you cannot always be happy, so people must accept it with all its difficulties and be patient with it."

He concluded his speech, "The journey through Lal Bari is an important part of my life, as it taught us all how to face different experiences, in addition to the lesson learned, which is that exploration and adventure remain eternal over time."
