Derived from the word Bidouin, Bidoune is a nickname Teshil Gangaram had during his high school days at College Du Saint Esprit. It's about having a nomadic lifestyle that is all about change and having constantly new experiences. After all, change is the only constant.
Teshil is an Engineer by formation, an educator by training, a mountaineer by hobby, a magician in his free time and rides a unicycle when he has nothing else to do. His classmates at Oxford awarded him the renaissance man of the year award for being good at many things. He was awarded the Rector's shield back in his high School for being an all-rounder.
Teshil feels very lucky to have achieved what he has done so far. His dream is to make sure that all young people who grow up have similar opportunities and possibilities ahead of them. Teshil's time as an Outward Bound Instructor allowed him to use the outdoor as a medium to build the character of young people. He is currently an Outdoor Education Specialist at United World College South East Asia
and a Senior Coach at Forest School Singapore.
He also wishes to push the sport of rock climbing and mountaineering in Mauritius as well as climb all the peaks in Mauritius (a concept he coined the Mauritius Grand Slam). He has currently done 52 of them. With no official list, he counts all the small peaks, which totals around 80.
