The mountains have taught me qualities like humanity, patience and selflessness, which are essential, not just for mountaineers but for every human being. When it comes to learning, there is no better classroom.

This question has been coming to me ever since I climbed Everest. People used to ask me, now what next? I used to ponder that I have scaled the highest, now where to go.

Even when foul weather thwarted my initial attempt of planting my National Flag atop Mt Denali, my determination to climb this peak did not fizzle out; instead, it re-bolstered my will to start anew and ascend Denali.

Now after seven summits having raised the tricolor on all the highest continental peaks of the world, there are two places I would like to unfurl the tricolor are the South Pole and North Pole.

I met Bachendri Pal as I wanted my daughters to be into adventure sports. But meeting with the legendary mountaineer changed my perception and I also took to the adventure sports.

I was married at a young age and then I got busy with the family. It was only when I turned 35 that I got interested in mountaineering.

A mountain of lesser height can be more arduous than the mighty Mount Everest—the highest point on the earth.

I have scaled many peaks and I have come to understand that each peak is a challenge in itself.

Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world that I ever climbed, but I must tell you that there is a distinction between ‘highest’ and ‘tallest’ peaks. The highest mountain is determined by measuring a mountain’s highest point above sea level. The tallest mountain is measured from base to summit.

I became a mountaineer by fluke. I was born in a village called Joniawas in Haryana in an affluent family that wanted to get me married at 14, as that was the norm then. I decided to stay in a hostel in Jaipur and continue with my studies to escape family attention. From my hostel room, I could see the Aravalli range. It fascinated me.

If you yearn for something without wistfulness but with happiness and faith, it comes to you. That’s what pulled me through every situation and kept me going is good health. That comes from the state of mind

I think about different things most of the time. I was at peace when I reached the top of Everest. I wasn’t very excited.

The journey between thinking about it and doing it was very short.

I thought of climbing Everest in November 2008, and in May 2009 I was climbing it.

Sponsors don't find it lucrative to put their money into mountaineering. It's not a very popular sport.
