What really motivates a rider
like Bernard Lazar, who could be well into his 40s, to ride all way from his
hometown in Kochi in Kerala on his Indian Roadmaster motorcycle to join another
set of gritty Indian Motorcycle riders to embark on an 8000 km, 19-day Golden
Quadrilateral (GQ) ride from Gurugram in Haryana?
Or a lady rider like Shefali
Bajaj to join the GQ ride from Ahmedabad in her Indian Scout? Then there are
others like Anurag Srivasatava from Nagpur, Col. Mulapulli Sudarshan from
Hyderabad, Niladri Saha from Raipur and Harshwardhan Bansal from Delhi. All of them own an Indian
Motorcycle and are pretty proud of that fact. But they are equally proud of the
fact that they are riding for a cause that is close to their hearts, i.e. the
education of the girl child.
The Golden Quadrilateral ride
under the ‘Wheels of Change’ initiative is focused on the Girl Child
Education. Sharing the mutual belief and
dedication in giving back to the community, these proud owners of Indian
Motorcycle will ride across 15 cities in the country and visit several schools
to provide educational kits and raise funds for the ‘Girl Child
Education’. The GQ ride was flagged off
from Indian Motorcycle Delhi and will conclude at the National Capital on
Commenting on the empowering
initiative, Pankaj Dubey, Country Head and Managing Director, Polaris India
Pvt. Ltd said, “We at Indian Motorcycle want to make a difference and provide
the right support for this noble cause of educating the girl child. The K2K
ride organized last year was a huge success and we were able to make
contributions to schools in India. Through the GQ ride, we aim to cover 15
cities, identify and contribute to institutions which are committed to ensure
primary and high school education for underprivileged girls.”
“We would like to thank Anurag
Srivastava, Shefali Bajaj, Niladri Saha, Bernard Lazar, Mulapulli Sudarshan,
Harshwardhan Bansal along with other renowned riders like Sonia Jain, Roshni
Misbah, Rahul Mazumder, Zohair Ahmed and Shruti Singh and many others for
joining us and showing their unwavering commitment to ensure education to
underprivileged girls,” added Dubey.
As a part of the GQ ride,
these riders will be cruising through 15 cities – Gurugram, Jaipur, Jaisalmer,
Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Pune, Hubli, Bengaluru, Chennai, Vijayawada, Bhubaneswar,
Kolkata, Aurangabad, Lucknow and New Delhi.
‘Wheels of Change’-IMRG is a
community that aspires to strengthen the bond between the riders and their
passion. It gave birth to an extremely compassionate programme for the
Education of Girl Child, known as ‘Wheels of Change’, wherein those people are
felicitated who are determined to the noble cause of educating the girl child.
