Default Passion and Purpose, together..

Hello everyone,
My name is Krishnan. Am based in Gurgaon. 55 years since I came into this planet.
At last got to be part of Team-BHP. Did not succeed in an earlier attempt. I have been reading various threads since last three years.
We have two four wheelers, extremely proud of both. Skoda Yeti , four and half hours old, and, Toyota Corolla, almost nine years old.
My life partner Bindu (also became a Team-BHPian recently) and I have driven more than a Lakh kms across India, starting with our first car, Maruti 800 in 1998 to the most recent, Yeti.
Our passion is to travel and our purpose is to Fund education for employment through ShikshaDaan, our not for profit institution set up in 2012.
We are now setting up ourselves for THE epic journey - cover 676 districts, 29 states and 7 union territories in India to raise and fund beneficiaries through ShikshaDaan.
Our journey starts in our Skoda Yeti on 1st March this year...
This year we celebrate 25th year of our togetherness too..
Seek the help and support of all TeamBHPians in this journey!
Regards, Krishnan

Welcome on board Team-BHP, Mr. Krishnan.

It is rare to see such philanthropy amongst us, and my salute to you for your efforts and dedication to such a magnificent cause. Your website was very informative.

May you have a safe & successful journey in your enterprise to travel across India starting next month. I am sure BHPians across the country would be honoured to make your acquaintance in person and help you in any way possible.

Sir,

Welcome to team-bhp! Hitanshu here!

That's a noble initiative you're starting. Do create a thread with your travel plan and live updates - that'll help you reach out to other BHPians for syncing up and help where required. Would love to meet up when you drop by Chennai!

Congratulations in advance for your 25th anniversary as well!

PS: Would you be carrying your cycles with you in the Yeti?

Hi Hitanshu thanks for your wishes and suggestions. In discussion with Skoda and Thule to make changes so that we can carry and use our Treks.

Thanks SS-Traveller for your wishes. Thanks for visiting our website. It's undergoing a major transformation in tune with our plans.
