The nation has been blessed with a 6-year-old girl, Suryassangyini Chaudhary who has made history by hosting the tri colour flag of India at the 16,300-foot-high Kanchenjunga Base Camp.
Suryassangyini is from Baraut in Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh and has become the youngest person to have trekked this high.
Suryassangyini’s father Sandeep Chaudhary, her mother Manisha, and two siblings Vaasangyan (11) and Manassangyini (10) accompanied her during the trek. Sandeep and Manisha have been a part of many such adventurous treks in the past. The couple is used to going for challenging expeditions with their children to teach them about the environment and inculcate the love for nature in them. Sandeep feels that education is very theoretical these days and it will not benefit children unless they get the chance to go out and explore; if they are being taught to protect the environment, they should also be shown the way to love it.
Suryassangyini says that she loves challenges. But unlike her brother, who wants to become a mountaineer, she wants to become a politician to serve the country.
The family has gone for many expeditions in the past five years. They had taken Suryassangyini along with them to the 12,500 feet high Pindari glacier when she was only two and a half years old.
Her dreams are big and so are her capabilities and determination. Uttar Hamara salutes Suryassangyini for her feat!
