The 15-year-old schoolboy, who hails from the tiny hamlet of Sungai Siput in Perak, has always dreamt of becoming a policeman.
But this dream has been reduced to tatters.
Ragaanesan's participation in the 16-day nationwide 'Ride for Change' campaign has drastically altered his perception of his heroes.
"Before this, I always wanted to be a policeman when I grow up," he said. "But when I saw how they (the police) treated us... I think I'm going to change my ambition... I don't know what to become any more."
The nationwide campaign organised by grassroots coalition, Jaringan Rakyat Tertindas (Jerit), was peppered with incidents like police roadblocks and arrests, as well as several bicycles being torched by arsonists.
While the authorities accused the organiser of numerous misdeeds, including exploiting children, Jerit has claimed that the official reaction was nothing short of politically-motivated harassment by the police.
His father M Sugumaran, 52, said he is proud of his son for having joined the campaign to highlight the woes of the poor.
"I only earn RM40 a day and this is not enough to support my three children. If it rains a lot, I can only earn about RM400 a month. I'm so proud of my son for doing this for me and other people," he added.
