Bhubaneswar: Founder secretary of Odisha’s leading adventure club Association of Adventure and Social Organisation (AASA), Saroj Muduli, passed away on Sunday morning at the AIIMS, where he was being treated for cancer.
Muduli and members of AASA undertook and organized several social and adventure activities in the state, including a one-and-a-half month relief operation in cyclone-hit Ersama, in Jagatsinghpur district, in 1999.
Thanks to the efforts and passion of Muduli, who is from Balipatna, AASA became a big institution not only in Odisha but a leading adventure and social organisation of the country.
Current AASA president Capt. N.C. Sharma, secretary Ashok Mohanty Everester Ganesh Jena, adviser and members of AASA, and many others including Director, NAF Odisha chapter, Rabindra Bhuyan, expressed their condolence.
Jena visited Muduli’s residence to pay his last respects.
