"I was in Indian Army for a period of 23 years and there adventure is not an option-it is a way of life and through there I ventured into the sport of skydiving and BASE Jumping. I chose to perform my 55th BASE jump from Supernova as I have seen this building growing from ground zero to this height and it was my dream to jump from 56th floor of this building," he said after the jump.
