Selected Students from Government Schools

These students are from Ashram schools Chandrapur district, Nagpur.They climb on the highest mountain range in the world, Mount Everest. Climbing to this highest mountain is extremely difficult task. Some one need years of training and proper fitness to do that.

Manisha Dhruve raise the Indian flag on the peak of Mount Everest at 04:30am on 16 May 2018 and create her own Inspiring Story for others. She still feels like this is a dream, and pinch herself to make sure that it happens. She is one out of 10 members who selected for Team & belongs to tribal district in the western state of Maharashtra.

Scout instructor Avinash Deoskar inform that they went in different schools for scout activities. We ask students to run and forget to tell them stop. After an hour we realize that Manisha was still running, because we forget to say stop.

They were selected for the “Mission Shaurya” initiative of the Maharashtra Tribal Development Department and the Chandrapur Collectorate to conquer Mount Everest.

47 students across Chandrapur district were selected but only 10 complete the training and hence selected for final climb.

Inspiring Story of 10 Students

10 team members from government ashram schools in Borda, Devada and Jeevti left for 60 days journey. Team also include manager-cum-trainer Vimla Negi-Devaskar, a high-altitude expert doctor, support staff and 15 Sherpas.

All 10 members trained hard for rock climbing at Bhongir, which is a hilly district in the southern state of Telangana. After that they trained in the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute in Darjeeling, a hill station in the north east. Finally they taken to the Ladakh, India’s northernmost region to climb to high altitudes.

These students inform that they inspire to climb on Everest by Malavath Poorna, who became the youngest girl to conquer Everest at the age of 13.

A year before, this was a dream and none of student not even traveled out of their town. Or even not heard of Mount Everest. Getting Mount Everest permit is very expensive. But Ashustosh Salil, a senior district officer come up with the idea to send tribal students to Everest and convince Maharashtra government to arrange about 40 million rupees for the mission.

Mr Salil says, this is the great way to fill confidence in the students and encourage other students also for doing adventurous tasks. Mr Deoskar inform that most difficult part of the training was fed candidates properly and arrange for their proper rest.

They belongs to such a family who can not support them with daily meat or milk in their diet. He also inform that we are surprised to see, how quickly they learned the training and adopt new situations. These students learn so quickly and able to use their sense to do, what other thousands of mountaineers fail to learn.

She was only 1300 meters away from the peak. I was too close to the peak, but come back. Still I am happy that my return save a life. I will try again and reach to the top of Mount Everest. Those who could not reach on the peak of mountain can not get one million rupees each from the government.
