The Riding Pulse of a Lone Wanderer



“I also do one odd job in every state. So far I have been an ice cream vendor and worked with the guys repairing roads in Thar. I want to be a farmer, a chai wala, a waiter and a lot more. These are dream jobs. I am grateful to all people who have hosted me, and at times I so want to pay for my food, but they never take it. I’m at present in Bangalore and it’s a lot of fun.”

“I am just super hyper and excited off late. 21 hours of non stop energy I am pumping out all these days here. And I am loving it. Getting high on life. It’s madness, man. I am staying at my friend’s place in Bangalore. Off to Hampi tomorrow morning,” he is clearly enthusiastic as he lets us know of his next destination.

All of it is quite fun-filled, but he has faced a lot of obstacles as well. “The society doesn’t think (of a career) beyond engineering. My parents were supportive, while my friends thought I was crazy to even dream of this. Not many believed in me. Raising funds were a problem and then there were my health issues. But over coming all this and living a dream is sweet.”

During this journey, he yearns to visit Leh again. “Leh, being the biking paradise of the world, I am quite eager to see again the mountains, the beauty of that place, landscape.”

Rohith has crowd funded this trip. He started his own venture, ‘Fundmydream’, through which he has raised Rs.5 Lakhs, so far. Brands supporting him include Ustraa for his beard, Wrangler for apparels, Wicked Ride as ride partner, and Zeus for riding gear.
