Award Holder Comments

I admittedly got discouraged during the expedition and the physical as well as the mental challenges of its completion were very hard to overcome. It is after the expedition that we all realized how valuable were the lessons we learnt during our journey. Without exaggeration, we came to appreciate certain circumstances we take for granted in our daily lives and grew into mature and conscious individuals.
