Note: You will have to climb around 350 stairs to reach the jumping deck. And take the same stairs to come down.

The view from the jumping deck is beautiful. I was amazed at how the Indian Ocean, Durban coastline, and the entire city merge together in one frame.

The Jump...

On reaching the Bungee Jump point, I looked down and straight. At that very moment, the reality struck me and I told to myself, "I can't do this. This Bungee Jump is beyond my scope".

It was windy and scary. I stood at the edge, thinking "Should I Bungee Jump from here or go back". Before I could react to my thoughts, the guy pushed me from behind, I screamed and was heading down straight into the Digital Screen and the stadium bowl.

That was my first experience and introduction to the world of Adrenaline rush and Adventure Sports. The sense of achievement I felt after Bungee Jumping from the roof of a football stadium kick-started my journey towards being a free-spirited soul.

My Motivation Story || Weight Loss || 24 kilos || From 99 to 75 kgs || INTERMITTENT FASTING || Nothing is Impossible

"Either you learn from your own mistakes or by the mistakes of other"


My cousin and I ate five Cholle-Bhature each filled with oil, butter, and fat from an in-famous shop in Lajpat Nagar, New Delhi. With-in an hour, my cousin felt very uncomfortable and uneasy. He started to sweat and breath heavily. My cousin's weight was 113 kgs on that day and mine was 99; today we weigh 84 kgs and 75 kgs respectively.
Some History...
I always had been overweight, right from my childhood. I was the heaviest guy in my school batch. My friends would call me Pumpkin or Santa. I never got offended when someone used to make fun of me as I had accepted the fact, 'I am Fat and that's how I will live'.
Almost, everyone in my family is overweight. I had always thought that I am inborn obese. But now, I have realized "The reason behind my Obesity was my own eating habits and not food".

How I changed myself from last ranker to College Topper || Failed in 6 subjects & then Ranked 1

This is what Thomas Edison said after failing to make an electric bulb 10,000 times & the same words I would repeat in my College Final Year
I completed my Engineering in 2010, exactly 10 years ago. It’s been a decade since I finished college & was declared the College Topper, but I was never that good in studies. I have always been just an average student.
When I jumped from an aeroplane, 13000 feet above
In 2009, by the end of Third Year of Engineering, I had failed in 6 subjects & my average score was 58%. In the first year of Engineering, my score was 50.1%, only 22 marks above the minimum from repeating one full year.
Such a low score in Engineering doesn’t often attract many jobs. Also, I was doing Engineering from not so esteemed college & had accepted the fact that I will have to struggle hell a lot once I complete my 4-years in Engineering.

Mouthwatering Momos and Pashupatinath Temple
----------------
I booked Indigo flight directly on their website for Rs. 11,000.
Booked my stay on Booking.com for Rs. 1000 per night. Morning breakfast included. I got a great deal for my stay since it was rainy season & doesn’t attract many tourists.
Here I start my journey to Nepal...
My host arranged my pickup from the airport for an additional charge of $7. A guy was waiting just outside the immigration holding my nameplate. The guy was very polite & humble. On my way, I drove past Pashupatinath Temple.
My host Mr. Yogendra welcomed me with a bright smile. He showed my room, helped me with all the formalities & introduced me to other inmates.
