Aakash always wanted a cycle but could not get hold of one. He got his first cycle when he was in 6th grade. But soon he got separated from his cycle as he had to move to a new city.
He finally bought himself an MTB in 2014 and his lost love for cycles rekindled.
Ever since, cycles have been an inseparable part of his life, and also supported his cause for a pollution less and eco-friendly environment.
He and his cycle have accompanied each other for almost 250-300 km around Indore.
"The Golden bird Foundation" is a TRUST, Non-Government Organization (NGO) working for India's progress in varied fields through numerous programmes.
He discovered that only cycling could get him near to his soul. The roads, the adventure, the fun during cycling makes him feel complete.
It has helped him to get down to earth. The gap in the social panorama concerning the wheels of the vehicles has somehow reduced for him.
