You might have heard this saying – you don’t need a degree to follow your passion. All you need is the willingness to learn and work hard.
And same is the case with Neeraj Maurya, a tyre repairer’s son in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh, who successfully made a battery-powered motorcycle.
According to Dainik Jagran, Neeraj comes from a humble background. His father is a farmer who also repaired punctured tyres. He is currently pursuing B.A. in Panchsheel Degree College, Mavikala.
He doesn’t have a degree in engineering. Yet he managed to make the motorcycle in a month. However, he didn’t have money to purchase a battery for it initially. Hence, he sculpted idols for Navratri and earned Rs 30,000, with which he was able to purchase a battery.
The speciality of this motorcycle is that it can run for 50-km after a single charge. It is also equipped with gears to go forward and backward, and is capable of running at a high speed.

Neeraj’s dream is to see people use his motorcycle, thereby protecting the environment from pollution. His parents are extremely proud of him for such an achievement.
Kudos to Neeraj for dreaming, believing, and working towards his goal!
