In 2014, Sambit started running as a weight loss exercise. However, he had no clue how running can jog someone to a new horizon of life. At that time, he didn’t know that millions of people across the world follow this sport. He heard the word “Marathon” for the first time in 2015.

When he ran 2 km in 2014, he used to feel that he had reached his extreme limit. But slowly over the years, he has completed thirty-three half marathons, four full marathons and one ultra-marathon. The positive frame of mind that blossomed due to regular running helped him in hatching new initiatives to address various challenges. Most of these ideas dropped anchor on his mind while running.

His life’s vision aims at ideating innovative solutions to mitigate climate change and making his village an ideal village of the state Odisha, India.
