Yakuza Solo has travelled across 23 European countries and USA on a self-made bamboo bike.
Back in school, Nagaland's Yakuza Solo used to be one of the 'worst students in class'.
'That's because I didn't know what I was good at,' he writes on Instagram.
Today he is a trailblazer, who is cycling the world on a bamboo bike to let people know about Nagaland.
For him Nagaland is 'the land where smiles are abundantly found.'
Solo believes that 'the world infers your community through the way you project yourself'.
So he decided to set out on a journey across countries to make people aware of the state in Northeast India.
The theme of his cycling world tour is three-fold -- to HOPE for change, to MOVE for health and SAVE Earth.
When people see him cycling around, they quiz him about the bamboo bike out of curiosity and that's whether the conversation starts.
Bamboo plays a huge role in the lives of people from Nagaland; they use it to build their homes, furniture and also for cooking.
Hence Solo thought it would be fitting for him to travel the world on a bamboo bike.
He has already been to a dozen of countries including Belgium, France, Austria, Italy, Serbia, Bulgaria, Poland, Finland, Sweden and USA.
Take a look at some of the pics clicked during his journey.
