For you as a woman, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?

Specially in India, where you have only a handful of women bikers ; it gives me a feeling which is inexplicable when on the roads. It's nothing to do with being the center of attraction but it's the adrenaline rush I get that starts from the one kick start of a bullet and doesn't end even when I'm off the bike. I feel that being a motorcyclist gives me the freedom I have always wanted. It gives you the feeling of being alive. It gives you the attitude & the thought that says,'I'm not different, you all are the same.'

How has motorcycling changed you and your life?

I'm 5 foot 1 inch tall and I started riding a Bullet when I was 36 kilograms of weight! No wonder it always gave me the strength to say to myself that I can do anything. It's all in the mind!

How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in motorcycling?

It's just a machine. It's always in your control. The dangers are invited dangers. One should know how to be safe and keep the fellow drivers and riders safe.

Tell us briefly about your 2 most memorable incidents involving you as a motorcyclist?

1. My first bike ride when I was 17 is the most memorable. My brother was my Guru.
2. I rode a Motorcycle in England for many years. Probably was the only Indian woman my friends knew who did that.

As a motorcyclist, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?

I voluntarily teach women around me how to ride motorbikes. I make them realize how big a freedom it is. It can be their way to break-free from the life's monotony!

What are the best and the worst things about being a motorcyclist, especially a female motorcyclist, in India?

The best thing is everybody looks at you when on the road.

Golden Question : How do you feel when you ride?

I get a kick which is inexplicable. My passion shows on my face, my voice, my attitude, even my gestures! When people ask me how I manage such big bikes despite my petite structure, all I have to do is smile. A smile that tells them that it's all in the mind. A smile that tells them how headstrong I am. A smile that tells them that riding is just not fun, it's meditation. It's that feeling that changes you as a person. It's self-discovery. Self-realization!
