Muki – No Salt Only Pepper

with 5 comments

Muki - CEO, Pepper Square (Design Partner)

Years to go before he gets a salt-and-pepper-beard or does he already have it but likes to keep in under wraps. Well, I’ve no clue. All I know is that the CEO of Pepper Square, Muki, as he likes to be called is one helluva bundle of energy. Chucking his hectic schedule at work, Muki made sure he was there to cheer-on the BSA TFN riders on the last 3 days of the tour.

I, of course, had to ask – Why the BSA Tour Of Nilgiris?

It seems that Pepper Square does three sponsorships each year and that the Tour Of Nilgiris is one which is fixed for the future. It promotes the spirit of adventure and it is bold, just like his company, which turned 7 recently. Their other two endeavors for the year are a not-for-profit organization called Kote Foundation which helps entrepreneurs in small towns within Karnataka and Swabhimaan, aimed at uplifting the girl child in India.

It would be wrong to say that the riders and the support crew make the tour. Without the endorsement of Partners and Sponsors, the tour would not have fructified.
And I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to each one of them.

It was a pleasure to be associated with each one of you.
The BSA TFN team hopes to work again with you, with stronger support and higher budgets!

    • Sure. But what about me? 😐 Whether you want it or not, I’m gonna cycle in TFN 10.
      All I need to do is get a cycle and begin training

  2. Ravi, i must admit that the entire TFN riders are the true heroes. When i did my few km ride in bandipur and other places, i could feel how hard it must be for others. It is about the balance of mind and body. I don’t know whether i am ready for doing the entire tour. But surely this year pepper square will support TFN even more. I was talking to Arun few days ago and telling him that we will host a get together in pepper square office in feb to plan for the TFN 10.

    Gaurav, thanks for your kind words and as long as i am surrounded by enthusiastic folks like you i will keep my energy going. BTW i see lot of pictures of you and your bike, i think we should collect all and write a poem. hehehe

    • For a moment, I read ‘heroes’ as horses 🙂
      Well, not much too choose between the two on the tour. You are right about the mind body balance being critical.

      And I don’t mind the poem as long as the pictures that accompany it do not show my paunch 😛

  3. While we’re dabbling in the area of Muki – No Salt Only Pepper Me … A Geek … No way!, Peppers come from the colorful Capsicum family which splits into two main categories – sweet bell peppers and the spicy chilies, such as jalapenos. The difference arises from the presence of capsaicin in chilies but not in sweet bell peppers.
