An enthusiastic group of five
women across India in association with Balkrishna Industries Limited (BKT)
scaled the Mount Everest (Sagarmatha) on June 4, 2018. The expedition also
marked the first time that BKT has supported a group of enthusiastic
individuals and their cause to successful completion. BKT is a leading
manufacturer in the off-highway tyre market.
In an earnest endeavour to
highlight women empowerment in our diverse society and work culture, BKT
decided to support a crew in breaking existing barriers with a slogan, “Unified
Voice for Equity” to ascend the Mount Everest. They commenced their journey
from Kathmandu, Nepal on April 5, 2018.
The road leading to Mount
Everest ranks among the most challenging roads in the Indian subcontinent.
The team comprised of Rosha
Basnet, Priya Laxmi Karki, Kalpana Maharjan, Rojita Buddhacharya, BP Koirala
and Deuralee Chamling. The hardships they experienced during the expedition
were real and life threatening but yet they overcame these challenges to
successfully reach their goal, ‘the Peak’.
Rajiv Poddar, Joint Managing
Director, Balkrishna Industries Limited said, “We have always believed that
determination and equal opportunities can spur people to achieve the impossible
and surpass all expectations. Women are the unacknowledged force behind
industry, society and national progress. Our endeavour was aimed at
acknowledging their unparalleled role in our lives. This initiative also
involved highlighting the need to extend equal opportunities to women. These
women accomplished something beyond their usual comfort zone by halting their
daily routine to train and embark on this glorious expedition.”
