He is on self funded tour as he left his software job to Ride For Green India. He is sensitizing school students, university students and people for rational use of our daily needs like water and no to plastic use. He is stressing upon recycling needs of Human wastes in Urban and rural area which is pathetic now a days.

2016 was one of the hottest years. Imagine the plight in the next 25 years! We need to act now for a better and greener future. My main motto is to educate students in schools and universities to save water, plant trees and follow other ways to protect the environment. I plan to cover at least 100 schools and target at least 200 students in each school. I also prepared educational videos in various languages.

I spoke about how I am trying to curb pollution and why we face water shortage, etc. I also promote Swacch Bharat and the idea of gifting plants for birthdays,” he says, adding, “Students learn about protecting the environment from books, but not in the practical sense. I encourage them to act.”

I plans to promote local government initiatives people are unaware of. “I also meet environmentalists and share their stories with students,” he says.  And the noblest of all acts, Ravi plants saplings throughout the trip. He also scatters seed balls (a clay ball with three seeds) on the way so that a new plant grows when it rains. He has been raising funds for the same. “I wanted to raise Rs 12 lakh, but I only collected Rs 16,000 so far,” he says. To cut down on expenses, he stays over at petrol bunks and temples. Founder of the community Ride for Better India, 

I am hosting it here in Chandigarh as he was inspired by my K2K Tour de Rotary in 2016 when we completed 4500 km in 26 days. PU BICYCLE LOVERS A CYCLING COMMUNITY ACCORDED A WARM WELCOME TO RAVI IN PANJAB UNIVERSITY. MR. RAVI ALSO GAVE A PRESENTATION IN UNIV ANKUR SCHOOL.
