A journey to the World’s Highest Motorable Pass – UmLing La on one of the deadliest roads was completed by Piyush Monga, Yogesh Rawal, Akshay Bhagat, Sumit Dangi and Sanjay Sreekumar from Team ‘Youth Against Rape’ for the motto- #RapeMuktBharat.
This is a topic that people hesitate to even talk about but this group has initiated a Revolutionary Movement for such a noble cause that encourages the youth of this nation to support them and take one step forward towards a #RapeMuktBharat.
This victory was possible under the guidance of Border Roads Organisation (BRO), Lt. Gen. Rajiv Choudhary (Director General at BRO), Lt. Col. Alok, OC and supporting supervision of Team 93 RCC. The team is grateful to them for their constant guidance and motivation.
This journey was not an easy one as UmLing La is a destination 19,300ft above the sea level, even higher than Mount Everest base camp & Siachen Glacier with a temperature that goes as low as -40°C with an alarmingly low oxygen level of 50% even in normal areas. Hence, the riders faced extreme difficulties, both mental and physical due to the lack of oxygen, water, and the harsh roads that go up to this pass. Yet, even after falling sick in intervals, they did not stop because they had their goal clear in mind and so, they achieved it with the true spirit of being Indians.
Special thanks to Ms. Kanchan Ugursandi for all her help and encouragement throughout.
These 5 gentlemen have set a great example to all those who couldn’t even think of taking such a huge step for this cause against rape and false allegations. They have made India proud and proved to be an inspiration for the youth of this country to come forward for a #RapeMuktBharat with ‘Youth Against Rape’.
