Army men have been undertaking and excelling in tasks that are beyond comfort zones. Being away from the comforts and luxuries of life they ensure national security and national unity, defending the nation from external aggression and internal threats, and maintaining peace and security within its borders.
Mr. Satyendra Verma, Retd. Lt. Col having served the Indian Army for a period of 23 years, had undergone rigorous training and therefore for him adventure is not an option it’s a way of life. The adrenaline rush running through him motivated to venture in the adventurous sport of skydiving and BASE (building, antenna, span (bridge) and earth) jumping. Over the years he has performed over 2400 sky dives, 350 Wingsuit Jumps and 55 BASE Jumps in and has achieved the feats of jumping sky from scrapers like 600 feet Supernova building in Noida, India, 450 feet Doordarshan TV Tower in India, a telecom tower at Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and the Perrine Bridge in the US.
On June 24, 2017, Mr. Verma with his 55th BASE jump created history by performing a BASE jump from the 56th floor of India’s highest building Supernova i.e. 600 feet above the ground level.
But why did he choose Supernova to perform his 2nd BASE jump in India? Mr. Verma has seen this building grow from ground zero to this height and it was his dream to jump from the 56th floor of the building. The building has a majestic view of Yamuna and Noida and has a perfect area for safe landing. Infact for a trained BASE jumper this is a perfect place to perform BASE jump.
