The last speaker of the day was Debabrata Mukherjee, a mountaineer. Currently a trainer, Debabrata has the conquered several peaks around the globe, including the world’s highest, Mount Everest. Sharing his experiences, he said, he had faced many near death situations.
“We climbers see death very closely. Shake hands with it, sleep with it, dream with it. Then when we wake up the next morning, we are a new person”, said Debarata.
Be it the stillness and calm of a mountain trail, or the crowded marathon tracks, sports gives us mental resilience, focus and a true sense of enjoyment.
