Vivek: The Antifragile Innovator **Past Passion Runner-up**

This is the story of Vivek Chaturvedi, an “antifragile” innovator existing in modern times. Antifragile was coined by author Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his book Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder.  Aadivaahan is Vivek’s creation that is intended to break the existing world record for Range of an Electric Vehicle (Non-Solar) on a single charge. The existing record stands in the name of the University of Applied Sciences, Offenburg team out of Germany. They have been attempting the record as a team since 1998 and it currently stands at an impressive 1,103 miles (1,631.5 km) set on Bosch test track in August 2011. Against all odds, Vivek continues to pursue his passion of breaking the world record because he firmly believes that you cannot stop an idea or a man whose time has come…..

Aadivaahan has a proven prototype concept that makes us believe that the record is well within our reach, achievable in this calendar year, 2016.
