It has been just over a fortnight since mountaineer Bimla Negi Deoskar returned from her latest feat of scaling the 21,631-foot Mt Manirang in Himachal Pradesh. The expedition was organized by Indian Mountaineering Foundation (IMF) to commemorate silver jubilee of Indo-Nepalese women’s Everest expedition of 1993 led by Bachendari Pal. “This has been a very special occasion as nine of us who were part of the 1993 expedition came together once again,” Deoskar, who led this expedition, told TOI.
