About the project :

Aniruddha, an alumnus of XLRI Jamshedpur, hails from the small town of Duliajan in Assam and is currently based out of Bangalore. Although he's been with Infosys as a Corp HR for a year and a half, he's a tennis player at heart - he started when he was 8! He has always had a deep attachment to his sport, and feels he can give back to the Indian sporting fraternity through Garlanding India 2.0. He'll be riding his Bajaj Dominar that he fondly calls Zeus. This will be his first long ride in South India - he has previously ridden solo through Maharashtra and Goa across 8 days and 2600 kms.

Aniruddha is one of the four riders who would initiate the journey of Garlanding India 2.0 in south. Garlanding India 2.0 will overall involve a core team of 16 volunteer bikers. 4 sets of 4 riders each will ride 4000 kms each in 4 different segments (South, North, East, West) covering all of India. The first segment will be the Southern Spin, covering the South of India, and will flag off on December 19 2017. The other three segments will be in January, February and March of 2018.

We aim to collect Rs 2 crores for 4 Sports Academies: Track Legend PT Usha’sUsha School of Athletics, Boxing Great Mary Kom’s Mary Kom Regional Boxing Foundation, Wrestling Champion YogeshwarDutt’s Wrestling Akhara and finally Olympic Gold Quest, the Foundation started by Indian Sporting Legends Geet Sethi and Prakash Padukone. To fight malnourishment, we have chosen Ekjut, an NGO doing great work in the area of infant and mother nutrition, as the 5th beneficiary.

We also aim to collect Rs 3.2 lacs i.e. 20000 for each of the 16 riders to cover their expenses. Hereby, we invite you to donate – to beneficiaries and ride of Aniruddha, who’s up for this great cause. You can track the live location of riders on all our social media pages and our website. You can also volunteer to offer a place to stay overnight for the riders if your place coincides with the route of riders of southern spin. The route of the onward journey is displayed alongside the live tracker.
