“How do you feel when you are on top of the world?” People often ask us enthusiastically. We tell them stories and experiences of grit, perseverance, relentlessness, fear, faith and fun.
We had the same opportunity last weekend when we visited JSW Paints‘s session conducted in Hospet, Karnataka.
Umesh Zirpe shared the vision behind Giripremi’s Quest of 8000ers.. How this journey has inspired many to pursue Everests of their own dreams… lessons of visionary leadership, astute management and flawless preparation very the inspiring highlights in his discussion. Bhushan Harshe shared about his journey to the top of the world. In this story, he mentioned about how he faced with a rock fall accident in the first attempt but managed to scale the highest mountain in the world, immedietely next year.
Ashish Mane, the Shivchhatrapati Awardee narrated Giripremi’s Quest of 8000ers which he was closely involved in. Vivek Shivade shared his experiences of climbing his first 8000er – #Kangchenjunga.. further he discussed, his pivotal technical climbing journeys of Mt Ama Dablam, Mt. Manda I and recently scaled Mt. Meru, which was the first ever historic ascent in the world.
The response from the attendees was enormous and we thank JSW Paints‘s team for inviting us and listening to our stories.
