IIT Delhi alumnus hoisted the tricolor on top
Recovering in just seven weeks, he was again at the base camp of Everest and finally he hoisted the IIT flag with the tricolor on the summit of the world’s highest peak.
Everest was spinning in the mind even after being infected
Choudhary said, Corona was confirmed in my investigation, so I had to come back home to Jaipur. During this time I was feeling a little tired, but there were no other symptoms. Despite being infected, I was not thinking about Corona.
I was thinking how hard I tried to get there and this was the only chance I had to make it happen. He told that this thing inspired me to prepare my body soon. My corona report came positive on 27 March, but I returned to Kathmandu in April and on 31 May I scaled the summit of Everest.
Passion for mountaineering with government job
Choudhary did his MTech degree in Environmental Science and Management from IIT Delhi during 2009-11 and is currently working in the Water Resources Department, Government of Rajasthan. He started mountaineering in 2014 and in 2020 he was elected a member of the ‘Indian Mountaineering Foundation Everest Expedition’ under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports.
