Since 2011, Tushky.com, a Mumbai-based startup by a group of IITians is trying to bring off-beat experiences to the masses.

Among other activities they pioneered the concept of commercial skydiving in India and this year they are hosting a special camp in honour of the chief instructor of their first camp Captain Santhosh Nagraj, who passed away on June 24, this year. Also known as a Flying Yogi (as he used to do yoga manoeuvres in mid-air), he was one of the most decorated skydivers of India.

The camp will be conducted at Mysore from October 19 to 28, in his memory as Mysore was his birthplace. Hailing from a humble background Nagraj went on to skydive at drop zones across the world and inspire countless people. The Mysore camp will be conducted by ex-Air Force trainers with two decades of experience and Vayu Sena Medal for Excellence in Training.
