A true story
Despaired Glory is an adventure true story of three Indian youths who were the first Asians to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in 1952. This was the era when a few mountaineers had successfully climbed to the top, and many had failed to succeed. Then Kilimanjaro was totally covered with snow making the climb treacherous and difficult. Out of these three youths, two were successful and the one, having the altitude sickness, had to retreat, and while descending he got lost in the forest. This story is an account of the success of the two and the survival of the one. Normally the success follows celebration, but here everyone were worried and looking for the one who had been lost for five days in a very precarious situation. One of the climber was the author's elder brother (Mahendra) who had given a full account of their despaired expedition.
05 THE DUNES OF KULDHARA
Present day village of Kuldhara
Kuldhara was once a thriving town near Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, India. When I visited Kuldhara, now derelict and abandoned, I felt like writing a story of this town's demise. History states that Kuldhara was abandoned during one night by every residence with unified decision to protect their dignity from a sinister Chief Minister whose ferocious treatment on the residents, and his forceful act of deciding to marry a thirteen year old girl, compelling the residents to leave their town, home, and every possessions. The real account of the incident was not available; hence, I have written this story as a fiction with the character's name changed and the storyline changed to some extent. I hope you like it.
