Even serious condition like a Brain surgery cannot stop a person from his goals. Mr. Ashok Kundu, the AVP of TATA AIG, had a brain surgery in the year 2005. The doctor advised him to stay healthy and happy so he started going for brisk walks and jogging. As marathon gained popularity in Kolkata, he started engaging himself with the flow and decided to take part in marathons. His primary motto was to spread happiness among the youth and elderly generation by keeping fit through running in regular mode.
Airtel has motivated the Running Enthusiasts consistently for last few years in Kolkata and is truly associated with the upcoming noble project in Kolkata. Mr. Ashok Kundu is a mentor and motivator of Salt Lake Runners and has taken the responsibility along with other active members of the group to spread the word of running in North Kolkata.
Mr. Kundu took his first shot at running marathons in the year 2008. In the last few years, he has participated in almost all the Marathons in Kolkata and mostly concentrated on the 10 km runs. His time generally varies between 1 hour 2 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes for 10Km runs.
We are extremely honored to have such an enthusiast at our event and we appreciate his efforts to make our world a better place to live.
