After about 2 days in Ahmedabad the student will proceed to Mumbai, followed by Madgaon in Goa.

The students are required to study the food habits and other sociological aspects of people they see on the railway platforms and places they visit along their way and other aspects like geography, agriculture, language, literature and ethnicity of people of different regions that they visit.
Students are also expected to complete a project during the journey.
