Sadhguru’s Advice to Youngsters
In this interview with NDTV, he shares his experience and love for the sport. He said, “India is a land of motorcycles, people use two-wheelers more than anything. It’s necessary for youth to expand their energy and they need sport which is challenging, people think it’s dangerous but riding on the road is far more dangerous than riding on the track because on the track it’s all happening in a controlled way with lots of rules and nobody can break the rules. So, overall, it is good for everybody.”

He adds, “I got license just after my 18th birthday, so, for me motorcycle has not just been a transport, not even a sport, it has been kind of freedom to go across the country. I have ridden across India many times and my bike was not like these superbikes, it was the 250cc, single-cylinder bike but I did not ride to any destination as I just enjoyed the scenery and the beauty of the country.” He is certain that the sport will flourish in India. Also, he advises youngsters to learn the sport dedicatedly so that they can excel at it.
