VIJAYAWADA:  Esha Gupta, a native of Lucknow city, is on a mission to zoom on the Golden Quadrilateral highways to send a message that Indian roads are still safe for women. The trip which commenced on September 10 from Chennai will end on October 18 in Bangalore.  Enroute she will cover 20 cities of the country.

“My trip is not only about me seeing the country. I want to send a strong message that India can still be a safe place for women and I hope to prove it with this journey. I feel that there is an atmosphere of mistrust amongst women and I just want to show them that the situation is not so bad,” Esha says.

The 35-year-old bike enthusiast works as a HR manager in an MNC at Bangalore and is currently a member of Bajaj Avengers Club in Bangalore. She has spent most of her life in Uttar Pradesh after losing her parents. A firm believer in breaking stereotypes, her initial journeys included backpacking across Karnataka, Goa, Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.

She will be the first female solo rider to take the Golden Quadrilateral route around the country. Besides her passion for travelling, Esha is also a dancer and helps people with fitness training.
