So this TamBram couple brought a kitten home and named him Dingo Swamy. Dingo grew up and turned out to be a female but they felt Dingo Swamy might suffer an identity crisis if they changed her name. Aiyo ! So this is complicated; Dingo Swamy has a Tom Cat name and a testosterone powered candor even managing to nick our headphone cup right off the table.

On the Long Way Home with Mohit Ahuja, founder of "Bikers For Good", a 7 thousand strong motorcycle brotherhood forged for goodness and "Know Disability" a photography studio that skills differently abled people to explore the art and make a mark, Big Mo, our gentle giant, is on the show penultimate as Biker Radio Rodcast completes a brilliant year of production, travel, friendships, collaborations and celebrations with this episode.
A prolific copywriter, Mohit's poetry camouflages stark emptiness as it, toying with hope and love, occasionally wafts into amorphous spaces of human emotions. A communications practitioner, Big Mo is fullstack when it comes to motorcycling. He's funny, jovial, a great guy and certainly a role model for those who look up to him.
He is till last seen walking around, wearing riding gear, with a mohawk helmet, waiting for the song in his ears to finish......6 feet and counting.
Its not a paradox if you simply process

1 can go into 0
as many times as it wants
