One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am very fortunate in this regard. I had been to Antarctica twice and had skied to South Pole, been on two expeditions to Mount Everest, both from Nepal and China sides. Besides that I had climbed amazing mountains in Great Himalayas. I have done Scuba Diving in Maldives, UAE, Thailand and of course India. Have seen war and fought some.. I guess thats quite a bit for the short life I have had so far........Recently did a ski expedition to South Pole and North Pole.
