We are back with the second part of our conversation with Venkatesh Maheshwari, Sr. Vice President, Aditya Birla Fashions! So, what does it take to climb the highest peak in the world? How do you manage it with a full-time job and that too at a leadership position? Where do you start? When can you start? How late is too late? How close does one get to giving it all up? How lonely does it get at the top or not? How easy is it to attend nature’s call amidst nature at its inaccessible best? What about the climb down? What do you do when death stares at your face? Are there forces on the Mountain that beckon you, that let you in? Why would one risk it all and how does every minute of oxygen matter when you are on that mountain!
Come, listen to our concluding segment with Venkatesh where he takes us through his journey of scaling Mount Everest and lists moments filled with awe, fear, love, trust, humour, gratitude and most importantly, humility. As Venkatesh puts it, one can conquer anything with not just one’s feet firmly on the ground but also one’s head on the ground! No, not the clouds! 🙂
