Gayatri Talk about Achievement ;
3 years ago, I was a modest girl who never ventured anywhere without my family. I was a girl bound my societal inhibitions, afraid to tread into the unknown.
Until one day, I saw a convoy a biker heading to goa. I was so intrigued & inspired, that this moment ignited a passion into me almost instantaneously.!
I knew 'Bike Riding' was NOT gonna be an easy journey & it surely wasn't! Initially, I had to face a lot of criticism & disapproval. I had to go against the stereotype & struggle for what I wanted.
I have come a long way since then. Bike Riding is so much more for me than just a recreation tool. It allowed me to discover my potential & pushed me to test my limits. Truly I owe a lot to biking!
looking back, I myself can't believe that I am the same girl...
It was one hell of a Transition !!
Hence for me, it is truly a very emotional & touching moment, when my name got engraved in the 'India book of records' for being the first women duo ( along with Rider Vishakha) to ride on Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
This wonderful moment when I received the certificate.....
