    For the first three days, I hope I can cover 800KM every day easily, roads from Bangalore to Kolkata is good,
    I have traveled on road to Kolkata a few years back, so I hope the roads are even good now
    But from Kolkata to Siliguri I'm not sure about the condition of the road,
    If anyone can share the condition of would be greatly helpful.
