“When I grown up, I want to be a pilot. I will fly you to Hong Kong", I would say these words to everyone when I was a kid! And guess what I did this Christmas vacations? I went for a Paragliding camp to Nirvana Adventures, Kamshet near Lonavala for five days.

On the first day, I started of with ground handling where I learnt to handle the glider on the ground. On the second day I was doing bunny hops which are small low flights with radio instruction for ten to fifteen seconds from the training hill. The exciting part was that you go solo right from the start!
