Rendez-Vous With Rediff.com
Ten-time Everest summiteer Tendi Sherpa tells Rediff.com contributor Anusha Subramanian why he cancelled his international climbing assignments to be with his community in the worst affected districts of earthquake hit Nepal.
Tendi Sherpa, a 10-time Everest summiteer and one of the few Nepalis to accomplish the feat (with no ski), was in Mumbai last week to support a photo exhibition by fellow Mountaineer Kuntal Joisher, at the Nehru Centre’s Warli Hall.
The exhibition titled ‘Nepal Himalayas: A journey through the kingdom of snow and ice’ was put together to collect funds for Nepal’s earthquake relief. The exhibition was supported by the Himalayan Club and all funds raised through the sale of the photos will go towards relief work in Nepal that was devastated by a massive earthquake in April.
