Please give us a summary of your Career.
At first, I started as a traveler which made me passionate about biking. Then, I got into the TVS Racing Academy and participated in ‘TVS one make championship’ and I’m still a title contender.
During the off-season, I travel to explore places and to spread awareness about safety, and the environment preservation.
I joined hands with the forest department for a wildlife census. Along with that, I also educate about people regarding the safety and responsibilities of being on road.
Please describe your current Job Responsibilities.
I am a professional biker and have participated in racing events. I educate people on how to be safe on the road and the responsibilities that come with being on the road. Since most of my audience is generally youngsters, I must appeal to them. I help them understand safety rules and the consequences that come with ignoring them.
I also educate people on wildlife conservation.
Since motorsport is not quite popular in India, I spread awareness about that too.

What are some of the positives, which would encourage someone to join your Profession?
If you become a renowned racer it comes with a good amount of popularity and glamour.
Racing programs get a lot of youngsters involved in racing at a young age. Racing is very competitive and involves many people. This ensures that you are never bored and always keep challenging yourself. However, once you’ve proven your skill, it’s easy to gain sponsorship and support for your career.
What are some of the negatives that you would want someone to be aware of when considering a career in your Profession?
The process is long and demanding and requires immense patience and determination from your end.
There is lack of access to race tracks in India (just 3 as of now). Apart from this, related industries like sports psychology, medicinal therapies to support injuries from this sport, racing insurance, etc. is yet to develop in India.
High-performance motorcycles and their spare parts, tires etc are relatively rare and expensive as is the high-end riding gear required for racing. Above all, motorcycling has a social stigma attached to it and therefore, parents generally don’t support it.
