Cricket. Cricket. Oh yeah, summit Everest. Cricket. Cricket…

I realise I’m in a minority of one when I admit to not r-e-a-l-l-y being a cricket fan. In India, too. (And, to make things even worse, being a Yorkshire lass to boot.)

But there you go, not much I can do about it.

But India!


Tear yourselves away from the IPl for a moment, won’t you? ¬†There are other sports out there, you know, some of which take way more guts and pain, and carry far more danger than wielding a bat.

An Indian woman summits Everest for the 4th time this week, but where is the excitement, the pride, the usual rah-rah-rah that accompanies anything to do with Indian success?

Total silence. ¬†One tiny photo in the Times of India, and that’s it.

Good Lord, India.

This is the 4th time she’s summited.

The first woman to do a double ascent in 10 days,

She’s going to try and summit again in 10 days.

This woman is superhuman, a rockstar, and I for one am thrilled and humbled and in awe of her achievements.

Go Anshu!!
