For you, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?
It means a lot being a motorcyclist.Being a rider whenever I seat on the bike for riding in tracks I actually start breathing freely..Its just a experience out of this world.
How has motorcycling changed you and your life?
Oh yes! Motorcycling has changed my life completely and it actually taught me to live our life to the fullest..That turning point was the first day when I sat on my Dirt bike and I rode.It just took me into the world of racing and just changed my whole life.
How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in track racing on motorcycles?
Ya MOTORSPORTS IS DANGEROUS but I would say no,if you do it with full safety..If your with a proper safety gear and all precautions taken it actually becomes more safer than you walk on roads.Still accidents can happen anywhere,anytime so there is no challenge to it.
Tell us briefly about your 2 most memorable track events?
1)Last years 4th round of Gulf Dirt Track National Championship held in Nashik, it was Maharashtra Local class 2-strokes upto 165cc.I was leading in it and in 3rd last lap my behind competitor passed me and in the same lap I took back the lead and secured 1st place in that race,that pass was the most memorable and the best pass of mine till today..
2)2011 Gulf Dirt Track National Championship 3rd round held in Bhopal,it was a my novice class that time,there also secured 1st place.It was an unexpected win but it was only possible because of my bike who supported me a lot .All credits to my Dad!

My wins till now are the highlights of my racing career..
As a track racer, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?
Still not a professional,so no contributions as such till now.
What are the best and the worst things about motorcycle racing in India?
Best thing is it has his own flavor which cannot be experienced in world championships also and the worst thing is, not enough of cash prizes, lack of sponsorship and the most worst our Government considers Indian Motorsports as entertainment not a sport.
Golden Question : How do you feel when you ride?
When seat for riding I just forget everything.I don't think about anything as if there is nothing in this world,only me,my bike and the track..As I said above I actually start breathing freely.I live to the fullest when I ride..!!
