My unique assignment: Updates from the everest

I’m on a unique assignment. Regular readers of this blog would have read 2 of the previous posts on Sandhosh Kumar, who is climbing Mount Everest. Read them here and here

As I write this, Sandhosh has started his journey towards Everest base camp. He is close to one week into his 65 days expedition, along with a team of 7 mountaineers and 2 guides. Sandhosh is very keen on well documenting is journey and sharing it with the world as he travels. However, despite the advancement in technology and telecommunication, it is both difficult and expensive to communicate with rest of the world as one starts climbing Everest.

My unique assignment here is to assist Sandhosh Kumar share his experience with the world. During the initial few days when he happened to pass through the towns where he could get some connectivity, he was able to update his blog and facebook profiles himself. However, as he treks through areas of no connectivity, his only mode of communication will be the satellite phone.

At regular intervals-at his convenience and depending on need, Sandosh would call me through his satellite phone and brief me on his recent activities, his current position and so on, and my task is to update the same information on his pacebook page and periodically update his blog. Sandhosh’s friends, family members and fans (as well has those of his team members) will be following his blog and facebook account closely for any updates and they’ll be kept informed through out his journey.

I’m excited at this assignment, of being the first person to know the updates up above in the Himalayas and be able to help a bit from my side. Here’re some photos he’s shared already.
