Dear Friends,

JAI Hind!


                            Subject: Love For Dangerous Sports


We have sent a circulatory mail on philosophical matter.  when  we  wrote on the relationship between’ science and SPIRIUALITY  and then, we  follow  that up by sending another circulatory mail on metaphysical  when the subject was the “SOUL HAS NO GENDER’’ ,Today we come to you  some hard and flout realities ,namely, LOVE FOR DENGEROUS SPORTS .

Some of the dangerous sports for which men or women have been showing love, such as, river rafting, skiing on snows. We also find ladies and gentlemen skating on hard ice, in which they  make beautiful dancing posses. All these are dangerous sports. Yet we find men and women loving these forms of  sports.

We are also aware of men claimbing  down the mountain stream  namely, the famous NIAGRA’S FALLS  in the US.  One has love, this form of dangerous sorts. To cap it all, comes the MT EVEREST. This IS highest snow- clapped mountain. In the world the   Kunchenjangha mountain is perhaps next highest snow-covered   hill . On top, of this  people try various and difficult routes in order to what seems to increase their own difficulties. In the back- drop of this rock – climbing, which is also difficult, does not  pose any danger .

Inspite of such inherent dangerous possibilities’ men and women feel      almost congenital obsession with such dangerous forms of sports. Of course, climbing the perpetually snow- clapped  Mt  Everest. remains the most difficult form of sports .

This love for dangerous sports has started in 1953 reach the top of Mt Everest, that was dicoverd by RADHA NATH SHIKDAR ( India) The first of  reach the top of Mt Everest

Most of this information as come in the lead aditorial  in the Statsmen of April 30,  2017.And, since then men and women  have been trying to   climb time the top of mt Everest  from different angles to top it all there is now a crowd  of men and women trying to reach of the top of MT EVEREST.  From different and difficult angles.

We have had the previllage of meeting tenzing, who is now heading the  Mount Institute  of the Goverment of the india in Sikkim.  Tenzing shown fill This Institute  he has sowl us a fill covering the entear proecces of climbing  the top of the  Mt Everest this fill of three hours duration. Teanzing had accompany Edmound hillary in 1953. Most of these details are availaible in the lead editorial ‘RESTLESS MOUNTAIN’. a copy of this lead aditorial is  reproduce below’


The “season” is yet to officially commence but already teams of mountaineers are out in the Mt. Everest region, training and acclimatising for a bid on what continues to be the “ultimate” in the demanding sport. It is estimated that at least 400 climbers are being permitted this season; and since that would mean at least twice as many sherpas ~ and even more porters at the lower levels ~ there will be no change in the worrisome “overcrowding” of the world’s most celebrated mountain. Hundreds have followed the 1953 footsteps of Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary, but attaining the summit has lost none of its magical allure. Sadly, in recent years the death toll has also been rising, and while freak weather conditions were deemed responsible for major mishaps in 2014 and 2015, there is a growing awareness that some of the disasters are the outcome of overcrowding, and indeed “traffic jams” on the final stages of the climb/descent. That adds up to a real dilemma, the economy of Nepal is heavily dependent on mountaineering and thousands were left jobless when the “season” was truncated. There is also reason to believe that with so many teams trying for success a number of less-expensive but inexperienced guides are now being engaged by less-proficient climbers. Not only are “corners being cut” on the sanitation and environment-protection front (decades ago the famous British climber Chris Bonnington had spoken of a garbage-trail marking the route up the mountain), but climbers are also being exposed to avoidable hazards. Raising the permit fees might serve as a “population control” measure, but fewer numbers translates into economic disruption down the line. It is evident that Everest is fast-becoming a victim of its own romantic fascination: there are other “tall” peaks, equally challenging from a technical perspective, but they have not acquired the charm of Everest. Maybe a major publicity effort will create “counter-magnets”, so too a proposal to permit private agencies to “manage” some of them. Everest will always remain the pinnacle of the sport.

There is no dearth of attractive options in the “Indian Himalayas” and though the sport has turned increasingly well-patronised, somehow the full potential of foreign climbers has not been tapped. Could it be because of a five-star fixation of the travel trade, which is in sharp contrast to the humdrum treks that have proved so popular in Nepal? Or because large stretches of the northern frontier are popularly perceived as zones of “military-interest”, and a number of restrictions on human movement ~ foreigners specially ~ are in force? The sport in India continues to be dominated by the “uniforms”: a special effort is needed to ignite the larger spirit of adventure, and boost the economic prospects of our hill- folk.



Well, Friends we find a recent report in the Assian age of May, 6, press  to have made this dangerous from of sports  look easy .A photograph  As show  one can go mteverest and have your breakfast there. does not seem unbilivele ?. We have to believe this dangerous sports made easy. Yet love for the most dangerous forms of sports continues and will continue.

Inspite of  the news report  in the assian age of April, 6  made this  dangerous sports   look easy,  men and women would continue their passonate  love for in this dangerous form of sports.  That means  the mountain will women restless.
