December 17, 2014
Indore has so far given great entrepreneurs, great artists and flourishing businesses to the world. This time the city planned something even greater- healthier- greener- server and a lot more.
Someone has pledged to cycle from Indore to Mumbai- 1500km almost.
Who– Aakash Mishra
A 19 yr old cyclist from Indore and is a founder of the NGO, The Golden Foundation- TGBF
He is a nature lover and an adventure enthusiast and has pledged to cycle all the way from Indore to Mumbai- and no it is not to register a record but for people like you and I.
Aakash is going to Mumbai by his cycle to take part in Jagriti Yatra. JY is a program for the young entrepreneur & young people with the aim to make a positive change for society. Aakash got 3rd level sponsorship from the Jagriti Yatra.
Jagriti Yatra is a 15-day long, national train journey that will take you 8000 kilometers across the length and breadth of India, to understand and build the India of smaller towns and villages through enterprise.
Aakash is about to do something for the children and the youth around him. His foundation PARAM – Initiating Genius, provides computer education to economically weaker students. Aakash is all geared up to cycle the 1500km long ride to raise fund for his cause.
To Aakash, cycling is more than a hobby; it’s his passion. Aakash considers his responsibility towards the society and nature and believes in contributing his best efforts to its development. Thereafter he stands up proud riding his bicycle across the city. Aakash, himself supports riding bicycle for his routine commuting and can covers around 150km in 3 days.
Aakash wishes the same thrush in the youth towards cycling. It is more compelling in 21st century when manual energy can substitute well for fuel and provide us a greener environment at the same time.
