Rohan Philem, a 23-year-old student in Sharda University, started bicycle expedition from  the university premises on Tuesday with the intent to aware people about the endangered Sangai deer found in Manipur.

Sangaideer is an endemic and endangered subspecies of brow-antlered deer found only in Manipur, India.

Rohan will be covering 3500 kilometer distance from Sharda University to his home state Manipur in 35 days. 

Asked about his inspirations behind such initiative, Rohan said,” I believe awareness can make greater impacts. This ride is with the aim to make people aware about the fragile environment and endangered Sangai deer in Manipur. My grandfather served as a forest guard protecting the Sangai deer and I promised to make him feel proud one day”.

Rohan will be visiting schools and colleges during his ride and will address the issue to students. He is of the opinion that such programme can really make an impact among the citizens. 

Sharda University has provided a new platform to him and helped him in his aim to make people aware about the endangered Sangai deer. 

During the expedition, Rohan will ride through Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Nagaland, and  Manipur.
