Sorry.. that was the game plan for being a mantri or a prime-monster in this country! When it comes to Everest, there is always a 50-50 chance that you might not come back alive ... and Sahiley Dai didn't but he must be happy because that's what he wanted to do and even though he failed.. he is lucky to die up in them mountains!
I don't know if I will ever live to be 82 but if I do .. then I am not climbing Everest! I think I will instead climb Dharara .. hehe!
Shailey Dai was our UN rep during them 70s and our foreign minister during the last days of the pancheys.... and hope our former foreign ministers like Ramesh Nath Pandey (Gyanu Uncle days!), Sujata auntie and the current hero, Upey will one day do the Ministry of Foreign Affairs proud by trying to climb Everest hola!
I think Shailey Dai knew he wasn't going to make it hola... so Goodybe Shailey Dai... may your soul rest in peace and hope it will inspire all of us to dream regardless of our age and even if we fail and die ... at least die happy knowing that was what we wanted to do all along!
