An adrenaline junkie by heart, Manish believes that people are born for a reason, and his is to see the world. Living the life of an entrepreneur, Manish saves all his time up in a bottle only to spend it doing the craziest things. The most recent one was a road trip from India to Iceland. All his friends were chickening out, and then Manish stumbled upon Tushar Agarwal of Adventure Overland, the only Indian to have driven from London to Delhi. Together, they embarked on this great road trip, with glaciers replacing roads on their humongous monster truck Toyota Hilux.

The trip was a 52 days affair which included extreme experiences like getting stuck in a hailstorm the size of cricket balls. As scary as it sounds, Manish finds himself equally lucky to be a part of the only Indian group which completed this journey of over 8000 km and will also be the recipients of Limca Book Of Records this year. Manish is as determined in his entrepreneurial journey as he is when on the road.
