sRide Brand Ambassador: Rahul Basu

Carpooling as a trend is catching up amongst the Indian youth, so much so that it is on its way to becoming the biggest social movement of all times! The trend is increasingly gaining popularity amongst the youth. The young professionals these days are seeking alternates to daily commutes to ease out their lifestyles. Be it for saving fuel and money, or making the ride less mundane by traveling with like minded people – carpooling has arrived but it still needs a slight nudge to get there! And that’s where we come in. sRide has been consistently supporting the core purpose of carpooling – making the cities clean, green and lessening the traffic. We encourage people to take part in the Car Free Thursday – Hyderabad every week and were also at the Hyderabad marathon registration to spread awareness, and award all those who helped us take the cause forward. Addressing everyone – even on social media – can be a really hard task, and that’s why we wanted people to help us convince ‘other people’ that carpooling was the way to go. Some call them the good Samaritans, we call then the sRide Brand Ambassador. And the Brand Ambassador of the week award goes to RAHUL BASU. Yes, he has been helping us spread our message for more than a month now. And has impacted a lot of his followers to take the same route! See what he did there? No. He didn’t make a hype around his name. He actually made a difference to the environment and the way professionals are commuting on a daily basis. He...

How I made a difference to the environment (and you can too)

How I made a difference to the environment (and you can too)

The environment is a funny thing; it gives you a ’false’ sense of security. Yes I mean ‘false’. It pretends that no matter what you do, it would always protect you – but that isn’t the case. It pulls the rug from underneath your feet, right when you are extremely comfortable.  So yes, it is a false sense of security and it is high time we do something about it! In the name of development, we are torturing this world into an abyss, and this truth should make everyone think twice – but somehow it doesn’t. The first time I heard about the word Greenhouse Effect or Global warming, it was back in class 5th or 6th. I hated geography, which in turn gave me no interest in what was gradually happening to our world. Today it has been almost 18-20 years since that day, and I often wonder – What if I would have paid attention that day? Would the world be a little different today? As the saying goes, it is never too late for a change. And I hope that the environment believes in the same. Even if not, we could try and make it! Let me tell you how I made a difference to the environment (and how you could help too): #1 Live Clean and Think Green I always compare this point with Yoga. We all know how Yoga helps our body to be clean and healthy. Similarly, even your house needs some yoga. Don’t you wish for fresh air every time you step out in the balcony early morning? Well, you can’t go...
