Man who drives in reverse

+CLIENTS PLEASE NOTE: MANDATORY CREDIT INDIA PHOTO AGENCY+ Meet the man who's making a splash in northern India by driving everywhere backwards. Santosh Raje Shirke set off from Pune, Maharashtra on January 10 and has covered almost 6-thousand kilometres across 11 states - all while driving in reverse. Santosh hits speeds of up to 45 kilometres per hour on highways in his unmodified Swift VDI vehicle. Santosh's love of driving backwards began on June 1st 2017 when he drove 180 kilometres from Pune to Raigarh, and since then he's been gradually increasing the distances. “I take all the care required to protect other drivers on the road,” Santosh says. As to the obvious question of why he's chosen to dedicate so much time and effort to driving in reverse, Santosh says he wants to "convey the message of brotherhood and compassion." Next up, Santosh plans to cover 5-thousand kilometres in northeast India.
