Kishie, who is a highly experienced driver, often writes about road safety and provides practical tips to his large following of loyal readers. Kishie himself has made a couple of overland journeys from Canada to India. Apart from his vast experience, he is known for his sharp wit too. He has crossed the “Kyhber Pass” thrice in a vehicle- something that is near impossible for any Indian to do now.

I have been striving to do something about it and this award is a big encouragement. I request everyone to please drive safely.”
