The duo created a new world record by travelling through the 7 continents within 3 days, 1 hour, 5 minutes and 48 seconds. They were able to beat the previous world by nearly 13 hours. The previous world record was held Dr. Khawla AlRomaithi from the UAE who travelled all the continents within 3 days, 14 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds.

Sujoy Mitra, who worked in corporate, and Dr. Ali Irani, who is a 60-year-old physiotherapist and has treated the Indian Cricket Team, are both travel junkies. Dr. Irani has travelled to over 90 countries in his lifetime while Mitra has travelled even more. Out of the nearly 200 countries in the world, Mitra has travelled close to 175 countries. He left his corporate life to follow his passion to travel the world. Keeping his passion for travel at the forefront, he founded entrepreneurship in travel.

Sujoy Mitra is by far the most travelled Indian and the world record is another feather in his cap. On this achievement, Mitra said that records are meant to be broken and sooner or later, theirs too will be broken. He also advised that one should aspire to keep on failing better.

The Indian duo ended their record-breaking journey in Melbourne, Australia on the 7th of December 2022.
