Indian Motorcycle has concluded the second National Ride of Indian Motorcycle Riders Group was held from March 3rd to 5th 2017 in Mahabaleshwar. IMRG brought in “Wheels of Change” for as many as 300 girl students by generously donating educational items as they decided to give a human face to their regular motorcycling sojourn.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Pankaj Dubey, Country Head & Managing Director, Polaris India Pvt. Ltd., who also heads Indian Motorcycle in India said, “We got overwhelming response to our first IMRG (Indian Motorcycle® Riders Group™) ride at Daman in October, 16. The second ride was organized at Mahabaleshwar from 3rd to 5th March, where riders came from all corners of the country. Our IMRG core committee decided to focus on a social cause and planned to recognize organization involved in female children education and were touched to see the great work done in this field by Nachiketa School in Mahabaleshwar.”
Indian Motorcycle Riders Group collectively decided to spread awareness on quality education for the girl child during this ride. They paid a visit to Panchgani, an educational Centre in Taighat which is one of the small villages of Panchgani (Talukar, Mahabaleshwar, District Satara) where as many as 700 students (out of which 350 are girl students) stay and get free English medium education. This centre is run by Mr. Laxman Parthe and Mr. Sudhir Parthe who have taken on the complete responsibility to provide quality education to children from areas which lack basic education facilities.
“The collective decision of Indian Motorcycle® Riders Group™ to visit Panchgani to promote quality education for the Girl child has taken the IMRG ride to the next level. I look forward to suggestions from our Indian Motorcycle® Riders Group™ to identify centers like these in other parts of the country so that we can replicate this initiative there as well,” added Mr. Dubey.
