On June 2, 2010, nine small wonders set out to traverse the length and breadth of India, making their way across plains and hills, and deserts and lush valleys; wading their way through crowded cityscapes, vibrant bazaars and colourful towns; zipping along winding rivers and vast coastlines; passing by modern towers and historical monuments. Thousands of kilometres. Three routes. Three Nanos on each route. Twenty-six days of fun and adventure.
Fittingly, the three routes were named after the colours of the Indian tricolour — the saffron route was about 4,098km long and covered a large part of North India; the white route covering about 5,888km in east India; and the green route mapped the south of India, covering about 4,829km.
