Rachit Kulshrestha lives in Pune, India. A two-time cancer survivor and single amputee, he is the epitome of positivity and a fountain of energy. Rachit’s mantra has always been to try different things and he has not let his disability stop him from aiming high and achieving his dreams.
An ardent adventure enthusiast and highly skilled single-handed cyclist, no terrain is too tough for him to take on. Rachit has cycled from Manali to Khardung La—one of the world’s highest motorable roads at 18,000 ft., toured the Nilgiris (across three states) in just 6 days, and completed the 200km and 300km BRM in April and May 2019 respectively. He also enjoys trekking and has scaled Kheer Ganga (twice) at 13,000 ft. Apart from adventure sports, he also plays football, cricket, chess, and table tennis.
A strong advocate of inclusion, Rachit hosted the Indian Inclusion Summit in 2014, an international conference held every year to focus on the need for creating inclusion in our society.
