Parvin's cycling passion started while on a film shoot in Manali in 2005 where he rented a cycle and cycled down from Rohtang Pass to Manali. It got him hooked to cycling and since has taken up cycling in Mumbai, Delhi & Gurgaon. Being a part of the Times Passion Cycling Trail was the toughest thing Parvin had ever done and the nine days truly turned out to be life changing and life affirming with the altitude and the terrain challenging them and the scenery beguiling them.
Parvin has also been a hobbyist and passionate photographer for a long time and has won many international awards including at the International Photography Awards, The Prix de la Photographie Paris and the Color Awards. His focus has been on 'emotional' photography.
