Parsis go platinum with rock climbing

Bats and slippery tunnels aren’t really normal props to celebrate 75 years of an association. But when it comes to Jamshedpur Parsi Association’s (JPA) platinum jubilee, expect the unexpected.

Members of the feisty and adventurous community enjoyed a two-day stint at an adventure camp in Tumung in East Singhbhum, 25km from Jamshedpur, on May 12 and 13 to celebrate their special day. Tata Steel Adventure Foundation (TSAF) gave them logistical support. Participants, who ranged between 11 and 61 years, took part in team building games, cooking on the field, caving, rappelling and freehand rock-climbing.

“The camp was great fun. All the action and adventure helped us to combat fears and develop self-belief,” said former JPA chairman Navsar Dotiwala, who at 61, was the oldest participant and is already looking forward to organise a sports events for children for the ongoing platinum jubilee celebrations.
