Vision

India can be a land of champions. However, all champions need self-belief and focus.

India on Track (IOT) has been set up to instil these core ideas in the youth of our country through sports.

We are committed to identifying and nurturing talent in every corner of India and we will do this through grassroots and specialized training programmes, Centres of Excellence and talent scouting camps. IOT is determined to provide the right platform to help young achievers on their way.

In stadiums, school grounds, parks and local compounds we see the air charged with self-belief. Belief in who we are and what we can achieve in the future. And we do this by sending India out to play.

India will be a land of champions.

Two Fold Objective

1 To create a system for raw talent to be carefully nurtured into world class athletes through high-level training while also creating opportunities for our talent pool to showcase their skills on the global stage.

2 To create recreational opportunities for children to learn and play a sport and imbibe the essential skills, fitness, technical and mental fortitude along with the satisfaction of participating in a productive and wholesome activity.

    You must be the change you wish to see in the world

    A self-confessed Gandhian, Rashim was not averse to destroying her opponents on the battlefield of Sport. Her love for Sport has also manifested itself throughout her working life as a TV journalist, anchor & deputy sports editor for Headlines Today. Rashim is the creative brain on our team. For the last 10 years, she has lived her dream, travelling around the globe for Formula One, Golf, Cricket and Tennis. She has interviewed, held panel discussions and shared coffees with sports legends like Sir Richard Hadlee, Kapil Dev, Sachin Tendulkar, Mathew Hayden, Adam Gilchrist, Padraig Hamilton, Lewis Hamilton- the list goes on...

    Though her focus has been Sports, her education at Sophia's has left her with a deep appreciation for fine arts, whether the writings of Manto and Gibran, the films of Guru Dutt or the Renaissance Masters. She firmly believes that while commerce keeps you alive, only Art nourishes your soul. A champion for animal rights, Rashim adores dogs and wants to build a home for stray animals.

After finishing his B.COM (Hons.) from Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, Rohan worked on developing and executing brand-building strategies through consumer activations and then made the switch to sports management. He has helped develop and manage commercial sponsorship programmess for the ICC, FIH and Mumbai Indians.

    When not working on sports, Rohan is busy watching them on the telly, reading/ writing about them or actively participating in them. And if it's football or cricket, then you can forget trying to pull him off the field!
