Training in parasailing for school children in Nainital

     Nainital: The Uttarakhand Government's adventure sports wing has launched a training program of parasailing for school children in Nainital. The first camp has a batch of 30 children, including five girls from various local schools. The children are excited with the prospect of trying out parasailing. "There are many career options in this field now-a-days. This training will also help in case in future we join army or naval forces," said Mukesh Joshi, a trainee. However, this camp is not a one-off case. The State Government has launched a new adventure sports wing under the aegis of its tourism department to develop and train the youth of the state in a variety of adventure sports. "Uttarakhand's infrastructure allows for better training of the youngsters in adventure sports. We have developed a special wing to provide training in adventure sports and encourage youth to take up these sports as a means of livelihood in their future," said Lata Bisht, Adventure Sports Officer, Kumaon region, Uttarakhand. The new wing will soon be holding many more such camps to provide training to the youth of the state in other adventure sports as well.
