Conquering in every field is what our Kashmiri youth is trying to do. A step at a time will take you to the road of success. And that’s the idea of New Age Kashmir!
“Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90…time is a concept that humans created.” ~ Yoko Ono
Age can never put any kind of limitation on our dreams. If you don’t mind, it won’t matter. And this is what Sangeeta Sindhi Bahl was inspired from. She is the first woman from the state of Jammu and Kashmir and the oldest woman to conquer the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest (29,035 ft). She also broke the previous record of Prem Lata who had climbed the world’s highest peak back in 2011. And now she is all set become the oldest Indian woman to scale the highest mountain peak in North America’s Mount Denali.
She was born in Jammu and was very ambitious since childhood. She was a former Miss India contestant in 1985 and was able to make it to the finals. She is also the founder and director of Impact Image Consultants which is based in Gurgaon. Previously, she has worked in the aviation industry. Also she has designed uniforms for few airlines. She got the idea of mountaineering from her husband who had successfully scaled the world’s highest peak in 2016.
Sangeeta’s journey started in 2017 but was not able to complete due to some health problems. Her husband kept her motivated all the time. Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa which 5,895m was the first mountain she climbed with her husband in 2011. Then the saga goes on. In 2014 she climbed Mt Vinson then Mt Aconcagua. When tried to scale Mt McKinley she got a knee injury. But still she was very determined to achieve what she wanted.
When she applied for a mountaineering course at the Himalayan Institute of Mountaineering in Darjeeling, her application was rejected due to her age. She said “My application was rejected as I was above 40 years.” But she didn’t give up on her dreams. Her husband worked very hard to train her.
The highest mountains of each of the seven continents of the world makes seven summits. She had already climbed six summits and now all set to conquer the last one Mount Denali in North America. If she achieves this one successfully, which we hope she does, then again she will break the record of Premlata. She did her training in Leh. She said, “I have learnt how to navigate snow and ice crafting while being in Leh. I had a wonderful training in Leh.” Sangeeta has also turned vegan recently.
“My cause on this climb is veganism and stopping all cruelty to animals. I wish to spread my voice for the voiceless”, she added.
She is a big inspiration for all the people and taught us you are never too old to dream. We wish her the best of luck for the next mountain she is going to scale. Hope she makes our state and country proud, again!
