What are dreams? In the words of our 11th president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, ” Dream is not that you see in sleep, dream is something that does not let you sleep”. Chakra, our automobile touring club, started as the dream of the two founding members Raneet Mallick and Pritam Mukherjee to spread their love of automobile touring and bring together people who share the same enthusiasm. Over the years the members have increased and the horizon of the dream has expanded. Since a couple of years we have been feeling that the time is quite ripe to shift to bigger platforms. After a long and tiresome process of planning and organization the time had come for execution of the first step towards our dreams. The annual ride of Chakra to Sikkim in 2018 was to be flagged off from Ecopark, Kolkata Gate no.6 by Wild Vitamin Drink who is to be Chakra’s energy partner in the ride. The day was fixed as 21st October,2018 which was a Sunday and also a special day in the history of our country as this day marked the 75th anniversary of the formation of the Azad Hind Government by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. As planned all of us along with friends and family gathered at the venue at 11:00AM on 21st October, Sunday. We were graced by the presence of Mr. Kaushik Banerjee , the Eastern zone head of Wild Vitamin Drinks. It was quite a colourful event and the flagoff was done at 12:00 PM. The members of the team for the annual ride to Sikkim are Raneet Mallick, Pritam Ghosh, Aritra Sanyal, Rahul Pramanick, Barun Shaw, Ayan Chakraborty, Priyojit Basu, Attri Debnath, and Deep Dutta.
As our team goes off towards Sikkim we would like to wholeheartedly thank WILD Vitamin Drinks for their support and trust. We are sure that the various flavors of the WILD energy drinks will keep them hydrated and make this trip successful.
