    Govind Kharol

    from Udaipur, Rajasthan

Hello everyone,
My name is Govind and I have already completed my bicycle journey from Udaipur to Bangalore which is a 1700 Kms route. It took me around 19 days to reach Bangalore from Udaipur. Now I am getting ready for my next challenge i.e. cycling from Kashmir to Kanyakumari to spread DisabilityAwareness.

I am 25 years old and physically disabled. I don’t have a right arm and the left one is partially developed with only two fingers. I have lived with this handicap and the ensuing challenges since the day I was born.

When I set out on my 1700 km bicycle ride for DisabilityAwareness,  I was simultaneously trying to save up for a Electric Bicycle, worth INR 57,700, which I was planning to later customize to meet my special requirements. When LightSpeed heard about my initiative, they contacted me to find out what it was that I needed in an electric bicycle. I was slated to reach Ahmedabad in the next few days, and Team LightSpeed invited me over to their workshop. When I reached there on Dec 7, LightSpeed Mobility surprised me with a free LightSpeed Electric Bicycle, customized according to my special needs.
Now, with one goal met, I can spend the money I raise through crowd-funding on spreading Disability Awareness, while comfortably meeting my expenses as I rode all the way to Bangalore".
Every penny you contribute will take my dream one step closer of being fulfilled - something for which I’d be forever grateful to all of you who support me in realising my dream.
keep supporting me to realise my dream of taking a PARIKRAMA of the country on a bicycle to spread awareness about DISABILITY AWARENESS.
TOGETHER WE CAN AND WE WILL.
My name is Govind Kharol, born and brought up in Udaipur - a filmmaker and cycling enthusiast. I have been part of various alternative initiatives in Udaipur city through Shikshantar Andolan and Bindaas Community and have recently started a weekly cycling initiative in the city. Together we create fun, eco-sensitive and creative ways of exploring our city.
