One of the founding members of Junoon and a hardcore masti freak!DSC00030

Rishi Sir brings creativity and perfection to just about every task he takes up, whether it's pitching up the campsite or trekking down the mountain or finding the best Indori sev to go with your Poha.. A national level climber himself, he has trained and worked with several generations of Junoonis, who all remember him for that unique knack of cheeky resourcefulness with which he gets the job done.

You will love travelling with him for one simple reason - he carries a secret bag of snacks that you can sneak stuff out of! And one of his best innovations of all time is the world famous AJ MODE - that method of forgetting everything and lounging around under the bleak Himalayan sun in cold afternoons.. Every Junooni loves him for that!
