The concept of Aadivaahan, from it’s eccentric, young and handsome founder is that humans are endo-skeletal beings- why shouldn’t our vehicles, our ‘vaahans’, be the same? Speaking of the legendary designer Preston Tucker of the Tucker 48 fame as his inspiration, this man is on a mission to raise 5.1 million rupees on the indigenous crowd funding site https://www.ketto.org/aadivaahan to create a vehicle to break the world record for longest distance traveled on a single tank of fuel. The current record is 1626 miles. Does this statistic sound intimidating? I wouldn’t be doing this if wasn’t challenging enough, comes the confident reply.
This small pitch to friends and well wishers was made in a beautiful new space called Lahe Lahe. Being well connected to all the creative spaces in town (it’s on the 80 Feet Road, between Kormangala and Indiranagar), it’s a serene, extremely organic place for all forms of art to grow. I’d highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone who wishes to reconnect with the artist within.
Towards the end of the evening, we were served *free* food by a newly launched, much needed night-food delivery startup called nightfork.com, This announcement drew more cheers than Aadivahan’s pitch, much to the founder’s amusement. Feel free to contact Vishal on 9538538380 for your midnight cravings.
Despite India’s huge potential, we have no major technological or design patents. One man is out to tilt the balance in our favour. Are we going to help him try? Vivek, the founder of Aadivahan, asked us to pitch in what we believed would help him, and if we didn’t help him financially, at least spread word about his work to 10 people. I’m putting in my 2 cents. I hope this inspires you to do your bit too.
