About this Podcast:

In this episode Major Ashok Kumar Singh, the first amputee to circumnavigate the globe in a yacht, shares his profound journey of sailing around the world. Born prematurely with physical challenges, Singh’s indomitable spirit led him to a significant voyage from Bombay to Iran. His meticulous preparation and resilience in overcoming formidable challenges underscore his belief that each accolade is a responsibility and honor for the nation. Through his book, Singh aims to inspire others to embrace adventure and step out of their comfort zones, imparting critical lessons in humility, the importance of fresh water, and the necessity of a technically sound boat for ocean sailing. πŸŒŠβ›΅οΈ
