Rebel with a Cause

Aakash, a Lawyer by my profession and a Cyclist by Passion. Its been 4 years since he has been cycling, and it has helped him in all the phases that he has been through. Be it meeting friends or exploring places. Be it reporting to work or collecting household things. Be it breaking his own record or be it just wandering around. Cycling has helped him to evolve as a person. And he believes, that talking up cycling is the best decision of his life so far.

Adds “it has helped me physically, mentally, economically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. I feel much more connected with the nature and can understand its needs and concerns.”

Cycling gives meaning, adds colors, weave moments in life. You become the engine of the machine and it takes you to places you’ve never been.  IT DEFINES YOU!

He as a cyclist,  wishes to EXPLORE, EXPAND & EXPERIENCE the unseen,
unheard & unknown.

India is such a diverse nation, with people from different backgrounds cohabiting peacefully.  A nation where after every 100kms the languages, cultures, traditions, beliefs, ideologies changes, yet fundamentally they all stay strong and united.

Touring India was one of his dream rides and therefore he cycled from Kashmir to Kanyakumari in season 1, covering 13 states, over 500 villages. And in season 2, he Cycled down North East to have a better picture of India as a whole. He covered Assam and Meghalaya as of now. And the flaura and fauna is astounding. He believes that nothing damages the adventurous spirit inside a man, than an urge for a secure future. This DRIVE HIM CRAZY!

He is supporting Central Government Social Campaign, “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”, to encounter the declining trend in the Child Sex Ratio. This is an alarming indicator for women dis-empowerment. The decline is widespread across the country and has expanded to rural as well as tribal areas.The Overall Goal of the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao Scheme is to Celebrate the Girl Child & Enable her Education.

 The objectives of the Scheme are as under:

  • Prevent gender biased sex selective elimination
  • Ensure survival & protection of the girl child
  • Ensure education of the girl child

Through out his journey he’ll be going to various schools and colleges to spread the fundamentals of this program and to aware everyone about their Rights and Duties. This mission is close to his heart and gives a meaning to his Dream Ride
