She leads motor biking expeditions
Forty-nine-year-old Moksha Jetley lives by this philosophy.
As a child, she would vroom her father's scooter through the streets of Hoshiarpur and enjoy rides on friends' motorcycles. Marriage at age twenty wasn't the best decision and Moksha was a single mother not much later. In 2008, Moksha enrolled in a mountaineering course in Manali after her daughter graduated. After this, she worked for a while in Delhi, but eventually decided to move to Manali.
With no assets and very few savings, life was tough. Moksha survived the first few months in Manali by teaching English before she got her first motorbiking tour. In 2009, she led a British group to Spiti on a ten day biking tour.
Since then, there has been no looking back. Last year she went to Ladakh with an all women group from New Zealand, Germany and Austria. And, this year Moksha led six Indian men from Dubai to Ladakh. "I feel so proud that I am the only Indian woman who leads such motorbiking expeditions to the Himalayas. People now write about me," says Moksha laughingly.
