I wanted to prove that girls could do anything, that social welfare students could do anything.

Fundamentally, anyone with money can climb Everest. And that’s what happened then [2010]. They pay a ton and it’s a great story to tell everyone. But that’s what they thought. Sadly, a lot of them died.

We don’t have reverse gears. The sky is the limit. That’s the motto.

I’m a sports girl. I play games well. That’s why they selected me.

I come from a very poor family. My father and mother are agricultural labourers who spend hours in the fields trying to make ends meet. Both of them together earn Rs 3,000 every month.

I shall always think big and aim high. I was scared. But at the time, I remembered my parents, my teachers. I wanted to complete the dream of my secretary, Praveen Kumar.

Climbing the Everest was certainly more difficult than i thought — but my willpower to prove that a tribal girl can do something kept me going.

Sending me and my siblings to school and looking after my family's needs is nothing but a challenge for them.

The aim of my expedition was to inspire young people and students from my kind of background.

I was initially afraid, but the training I received helped me overcome my fear. I never thought of giving up.

(In the last leg of her climb, she saw six bodies and she was shocked) I thought ‘Oh, my God!’ and I felt some fear. Then I took a minute to recollect the Swaeroes’ ten commandants, and thought about my parents and Secretary Sir.

For a tribal like me, opportunities are very rare and I was looking for one opportunity where I could prove my calibre.

My instructors told me I'd see dead bodies on the way to the summit. I knew every step was dangerous. I just carried on climbing.

Poorna Malavath

I cannot even describe how difficult the climb was, but I was fixed on fulfilling the dreams of Secretary Sir.

I had sponsors for my Record climb and thought definitely we could save some money but unfortunately I could not save any money from expedition because sponsor money was not a lot. Hardly enough for expense for food and staff.
