Passion has no boundaries.
And when it is combined with dedication for a cause then nobody can stop you from doing what you want.
There are a lot of things we want to do but because of several thoughts like
What will your parents say?
How will your neighbours react?
What will others say?
These things come into your mind and you don’t do what you are passionate about.
And, you know you don’t get happiness or say “kick” in what you are forced to do
But you get that “Kick” in doing the thing you are passionate about.
Today I am writing about such a person who defied all those thoughts started doing what he was passionate about.
Meet Mr Brajesh Sharma!
Hailing from Gandhinagar, Brajesh Sharma left a multinational company job to work for his passion.
He was so moved by the harm we are doing to the earth with extensive use of Single-Use Plastic.
He gave up his job and decided to travel around India on his bicycle to raise awareness about the harms of using plastic.
On January 24, 2020, He has completed a journey of more than 7000 kilometres on his bicycle.
He started his journey from Gandhinagar Gujrat on 17th September 2019 and in 4 months have travelled more than 7000 kilometres across 5 states of India.

He used to spread awareness through his awareness sessions in schools, colleges and through other mediums like news channels, FM station etc.
But due to COVID and lockdown since March 2020, he has to return back to his place Gandhinagar.
Now, he is waiting for days to be normal so that he can continue his journey to spread awareness about the harm of single-use plastic.
He is on a mission to Make India Free from “Single-Use Plastic”
