JEANS WALA MOWGLI
BOOMERANG THROWER & DESIGNER
Vivek Montrose received his first Boomerang as a gift when he was only eight years old, and learnt the sport at the age of 15, in 1991, and became the first Indian to learn to not just throw but even carve a Boomerang, resulting in his being fondly titled by the Gond community as ‘Jeans wala Mowgli’. Vivek, with the Blessings of his Guru, Ken Colbung, became the first Indian to represent the nation at the 50th Anniversary of the Boomerang Association of Australia and its National Boomerang championship, held in Perth, Australia in April 2019. Moreover, he has been appointed as the member of the International Federation of Boomerang Associations (IFBA), Germany. He is the Founder President of IBA, the INDO-Boomerang Association, and is ready to give the nation its first Boomerang sporting organization.
WHAT IS A BOOMERANG?
Boomerang, as is obvious from its name, returns to it’s starting point, is a throwing tool typically constructed as a flat airfoil, that is designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight, when thrown with a certain technique. Originally, it was made of wood, but in present times, it is mainly a sporting tool, and modern boomerangs are mainly made of foam and PVC materials.
