Amrita TV has launched an new show Great India Race (GIR), wherein the contestants will race across the length and breadth of the country, guided by hidden clues given to them when they reach a specified leg in the journey.
In the show, contestants will be in the actual world facing realities without rehearsals, without takes and without a second chance. The competition will be between partners who function in pairs. Thus, each team will consist of two persons - who could be friends, spouses, siblings, parents, relatives, companions, parent-child, teacher-student, grandparent-grandchildren, et al. They need to be above 21 years and have the authority to take their own decision and be medically fit to participate. GIR pair partners have no gender restriction.
Every competing team may have to travel by train, bus, auto, taxi, bullock cart, as the situation demands. They may be required to maneuver busy roads, trek lonely paths, climb mountains, cross rivers, encounter heat and cold, or rain and snow; enjoy and experience different cultures, taste different food.
Each GIR team will be provided with a fixed sum of money for completing every leg of the competition. Borrowing money, use of credit cards or taking help of friends, relatives, contacts to enjoy an unfair advantage in the GIR will not be permitted.
Aspirants have to register by March 8 by sending CVs and CDs of the team, which should demonstrate the team's attitude towards life with an adventurous spirit, demonstrating the pair's mutual chemistry.
