Sethna’s 18th West Bombay Scout Group
What started as an idea, an experiment; way back in the August of 1914, today has over 90 wonderful years, come to become an institution non pareil in the nation and probably the world, in its own field.
One man Rustomji Edulji Sethna stumbled upon a book on a then new, relatively unknown activity, called Boy Scouting. The brilliance and the visionary in the man saw it as a building block of society and a way to make great citizens of our nation from young boys at a very influential age.
This was the start to the Sethnas 18th West Bombay Scout Group. Through its 90 years of continuous and active running as a Boy Scout Group, there is possibly nothing that the group has not done or achieved. The quest to excel in the everyday world is eternal and is the strongest legacy left behind by the founding father who passed away 51 years ago, way back in 1954.
