It was a convergence of friends old and new; paragliding pilots, surfers, entrepreneurs, adventurers and thousands of fireflies came together to celebrate Nirvana Adventure’s 20th Anniversary paragliding season end. Local drums got us all into a dancing frenzy, while the myriad fireflies lit up the trees around.
Now on a holiday in India with friends from NZ Sinchan organised for all of them to sign up for an Elementary Pilot Course. His close friends from Mumbai joined in too. NZ friends Miky, Arjun and Sean loved the paragliding course and had a lot of good things to say about it. As did Sonal Sharma, Manan Vora and Avik Das.
We had a surprise visitor at the Saturday night pilot get together at Native Place the other week. It was a night flying enthusiast of a different sort or should i say a winged creature of a different classification – a beautiful Indian Moon Moth. Nirvana Paragliding weekend
It was great fun to watch every pilot take off and quickly rise above the Shelar Mountain. There were nearly 20 pilots who had already taken to the air – Rinul Pashankar, Dylan Fernandes and Hiren Savla were amongst them. It was time for Apoorva Talwalkar and Me to join them. Finally, I said to myself with a big grin, I’m going to fly.
Another new paragliding season begins with elementary pilot courses at Kamshet. After a long monsoon break the FlyNirvana team is happy to be back in the field helping you to achieve your free flight dreams. Come join us on an adventure in the skies.
I would consider it a good occasion for us pilots flying at Kamshet to stop a moment to reflect on and be grateful for the rapport and respect we share with the local farmers and land owners at Kamshet. our access to the sites here depend on the good will of the local people and we need to tread gently and give back at least a little if not as much as we receive.
I often talk about the ‘nirvana paragliding trip’ a special experience that each of our students and visiting pilots go through – one filled with excitement, discovery, lasting friendships & memories and a sense of belonging to the Nirvana Paragliding Family and Native Place.
The weekend was surely women’s pg weekend . Besides Jan and Vrinda we had 6 new female students join the Elementary Pilot course. Do we see a new and welcome trend beginning here 🙂
