INDIAN ARMY WOMEN EVEREST EXPEDITION 2012

, by indianmilitaryveterans


INDIAN ARMY WOMEN EVEREST EXPEDITION 2012

 In yet another example of launching of women in powerful roles, Indian Army this time is sending all Women Expedition to Mt Everest, the highest peak in the world. Indian Army has a rich contribution towards adventure activities across the world. With seven out of
nine open peaks of above 8000 M already scaled, South Pole conquered last year and an expedition to North Pole already on its way, a ‘Women Team’ now going to climb Mt Everest adds another feather in its cap.
Mt Everest was conquered for the first time by an Indian Army Expedition in 2001. Since then it has been a norm in the Army, to send members on all expeditions undertaken by Army or by other organizations like NIM (Nehru Institute of Mountaineering), HMI (Himalayan Mountaineering Institute) etc. The first army women team had summited Mt Everest through North (Tibet) in 2005 and now another such team will attempt for the first time through South (Nepal) which is known as the traditional route, from which Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay had first climbed. This is also the longer and much tougher route, as considered by mountaineers.
Everest, due to the sheer difficulty posed by the terrain and altitude, and the glory of being the greatest mountain on the earth, is the ultimate destination of everymountaineer. It throws great technical challenges to the mountaineers, in form of the infamous Khumbu ice fall, blind crevasses and avalanche prone slopes, climb over Lhotse face and other formidable obstacles like Geneva Spur, Yellow Band, Hillary Step, Balcony etc. The 22 members team has been flagged off by Lt Gen Ramesh Halgali, AVSM, SM, DCOAS (IS&T) on 12 Mar 2012. He addressed the team of selected and experienced mountaineers wishing them good luck for the extreme and demanding adventure activity that they have been assigned.
The team will take off for Kathmandu (Nepal) from Delhi on 22 Mar 2012. After a 17 days long trek they will reach Base Camp on 12 Apr 2012 which is at 17500 ft altitude. Four camps will be established enroute and after completing the load ferries and acclimatization process, the summit attempts will be made between 15-20 May 2012.
Adventure is a way of life in the Army. The pursuit of Everest by the Army Women team is a feat and definitely in furtherance for more ambitious projects for women in the Army.

Who is the greatest Indian? (After Gandhi, of course)

, by indianmilitaryveterans

 
What is the correct parameter to gauge greatness? This interesting question becomes more so when you apply it to a person rather than a thing. It becomes especially interesting when a poll asks the people to decide who is the “greatest Indian after Mahatma Gandhi”.
The poll, sponsored by Anil Ambani’s Reliance Mobile and conducted by CNN-IBN and the History channel, both owned by Network 18 group, is open to Indian citizens and has a simple voting process. Call the number assigned to your choice to register your vote. You can also vote online.
Among the 50 choices are:
Bhimrao Ambedkar, the champion of the rights of India’s disenfranchised, particularly its “lower” and “backward” castes, as well as Dalits, or what the rest of the world knows as “untouchables.” He is also the man behind India’s constitution.
Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister, whose descendants control India’s ruling party and are often considered the first family of the country.
APJ Abdul Kalam, India’s former president and a well known scientist. Kalam is also credited for India’s nuclear programme.
Mother Teresa, the Albanian nun, founder of the Missionaries of Charity and winner of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize.
AR Rahman, the Oscar-winning music director, known for his work in the critically acclaimed film “Slumdog Millionaire”.
Amitabh Bachchan, one of the two leading men in India’s most successful film ever, “Sholay,” and an inveterate pitchman, not to mention the bearer of a cameo appearance in Baz Luhrmann’s take on “The Great Gatsby”.
Sachin Tendulkar, one of India’s most famous cricket stars, and a newly minted legislator in India’s parliament.
Interestingly, the list includes the famous painter Maqbool Fida Husain who was, ironically, chased away from the country by right-wing Hindus for painting Hindu gods and Mother India in the nude.
If you are to judge the greatest among them, how do you determine a parameter other than fame? Or entertainment? Isn’t judging Sachin against Mother Teresa — or Amitabh Bachchan — like judging a fish on how well it can climb a tree?
Of course, an Indian can be as proud of Sachin as he can of Kalam. But comparing greatness between men and women from different aspects of Indian society risks putting the average guy in a position that might make him feel a bit disloyal — cricket champion vs. father of the Constitution of India. Isn’t it necessary to distinguish between forms of greatness?
And what about the contention that Gandhi is the greatest Indian ever?
He did teach Indians the power of non-violence in the face of the gun, and let’s not forget that there were plenty of Indians who thought that affairs of state would go better without him. His assassination in 1948 itself proves that not everyone agreed with his ideas.
Gandhi has come under criticism for a lot of things — his experiments with celibacy and alienating the firebrand leader Subhash Chandra Bose from the Congress party who later founded Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army) with the help of the Japanese during World War II to wage an armed struggle against the British.
His detractors also hold him accountable for failing to save Indian nationalists Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru, who were accused of killing the assistant police superintendent John Saunders and hanged.
Also, many people say that Gandhi is the man who was responsible for dividing the newly independent India into India and Pakistan.
As for Ambedkar, he created the reservation system to provide affirmative action for “backward” and underrepresented minorities. In India, where caste remains a major problem to the extent of being the decisive factor in several state elections, even when it is not supposed to exist in a serious democracy, you could read this as a major hindrance to being “great”.
Then there is the matter of the poll. Though Ambedkar seems to be winning with approximately 65 percent of the votes, there have been some odd leaps in the numbers. Example: Kalam overtook Kanshiram, another champion of cause of lower castes in a matter of few hours in spite of trailing earlier.
Polls are designed to reveal public opinion, and this one appears to be doing its best to provide that. But a poll also should avoid fixing the winner before it even gets started. In the world’s largest democracy, there probably is a “greatest Indian,” whether for events profound or otherwise. Whether this poll can provide that result is a matter of … public opinion.
