getting entry into a tough job indeed . the eligibility to enter into raid de himalaya need a lot of paper work ,more than any admission into college or any job -i filled at least 42 different forms to take part in raid.. its a lengthy and tiring process. every participant must have a prior experience of one rally -but by seeing my record of my different rides on platina in Himalayan regions of nepal .mr vijay parmar gave me direct entry into raid. before raid i never ever seen any motorsport and did not have any friend who is into motorsports -i just wanted to check my riding skill and my goal was at least to complete the raid .

Wow, that's a lot of forms! Hope they can somewhat simplify the process for the participants in the future.

on 5th October around 12 pm i left for shrinagar -and bought a chain spray for motorcycle ..around 7 pm i got stuck in the traffic jam of ramban and i noticed clutch plate of new extreme was gone .it was due to my mistakes because many times i was accelerating and starting in wrong gear .i was out of town so i had to come back to ramban that was 5 kilometer
