He sang a Hindi song at such height and dedicated his performance to the most celebrated Indian legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar.
"I have been trying to make this record since last March. Twice it couldn't happen due to rain, once the pilot refused to fly the team and twice I had to cancel the plan due to Covid-19 and a casualty in the family," said Divyansh, as reported by TOI.
"I am a singer and a guitarist, while I was about to leave for a trip to Nainital I searched a few paragliding videos for knowledge. While I was searching, I came across a video in which a boy was singing and playing guitar while paragliding. Later, I found out that till now no record of singing while paragliding has been made by someone of my age," he added.
