Easiest routerock/snow/ice climb
Chamar is the highest peak of the Sringi (or Serang) Himal, which is a subrange of the Nepalese Himalayas.
Chamar and the entire Sringi Himal lie in Central Nepal, just south of the Tibetan border, between the Shyar Khola valley on the east and the Tom Khola—Trisuli Gandaki valley on the west. Chamar is about 90 km northwest of Kathmandu, and about 25 km east of Manaslu, the nearest eight-thousander.

Notable features

The Sringi Himal is small in land area and remote even by Himalayan standards; it has seen little visitation from outsiders.

Although low in elevation among the major mountains of Nepal, Chamar is exceptional in its steep rise above local terrain. For example, it rises 5500 m from the Tom Khola/Trisuli Gandaki confluence in a horizontal distance of about 13 km.

Climbing history

Interestingly, there is no record of attempts on this mountain prior to the successful first ascent in 1953. In May-June of that year, a party from New Zealand climbed the peak via the Northeast Ridge route, placing five camps.
The Himalayan Index lists three more unsuccessful attempts, in 1983, 1994, and 2000, but no more ascents of the peak.

Gujarat withdraws books with ‘anti-Hindu’ Ambedkar remarks

The book was distributed in schools as part of Dr Ambedkar’s 125th birth anniversary celebrations.

The book, Rashtriya Mahapurush Bharat Ratna Dr B R Ambedkar, written in Gujarati by Dalit scholar P A Parmar, was selected by the state government’s Department of Social Justice & Empowerment.

The book was distributed in schools as part of Dr Ambedkar’s 125th birth anniversary celebrations. The government took the decision to withdraw the book after it found that the publisher had added the “22 vows” Ambedkar prescribed during the mass religious conversion of 1956, in which thousands of his followers shed Hinduism and embraced Buddhism.
The Gujarat government has withdrawn a book on Dr B R Ambedkar that was distributed to students of Class VI-VIII in government primary schools across the state, reportedly because it contained “anti-Hindu” content.
The book, Rashtriya Mahapurush Bharat Ratna Dr B R Ambedkar, written in Gujarati by Dalit scholar P A Parmar, was selected by the state government’s Department of Social Justice & Empowerment — the same department that ordered the recall.
The department is leading the programme on the year-long celebrations, which started on Ambedkar’s birth anniversary, April 14, 2015. The book was distributed to students so they could prepare for a state-level quiz competition on Ambedkar.
Sources said the publisher, Ahmedabad-based Surya Prakashan, had already dispatched the books to district headquarters and they were being distributed to schools when an order to recall them was issued.
The government had got more than four lakh books printed, most of which had already been distributed. Dr Ambedkar had read out the 22 vows at a mass conversion ceremony in Nagpur on October 15, 1956. In the vows, Ambedkar stated that Hinduism was “based on inequality” and denounced Hindu deities and rituals.
Director, Scheduled Caste Welfare, Department of Social Justice & Empowerment, K D Kapadia said, “The publisher added some things in the book that were seen as sending a wrong message to the impressionable mind of primary school students, so the government decided to withdraw the book… Some matters pertaining to religious conversion that are there in the 22 vows of Dr Ambedkar were added by the publisher that were seen as going against the message of national integration. Government’s action will be in the interest of the public.”
When contacted, Parmar said the original edition of the book was 24 pages-long and did not contain the 22 vows. “The addition was made by the publisher, who did not discuss the matter with the writer,” Parmar said. “It was the publisher’s mistake to add Ambedkar’s 22 vows. The addition has caused controversy… The publisher said that since some pages were blank while going to print, he decided to print the vows without asking me. The changes in my book were not discussed with me, else I would have suggested the use of Baba Saheb’s pictures instead,” Parmar said.
Parmar and an official of the Social Justice & Empowerment department said the publishing was handled by Dharmesh Kothari of Surya Prakashan. When contacted, Kothari refused to comment on the matter.

This is the story of two people who belonged to very different backgrounds but it was love that united them together. While Charlotte Von Schedvin was a blonde, blue-eyed young woman from Swedish nobility, PK Mahanandia was a poor art student from eastern India and an untouchable because of the country’s caste system.
They met in Delhi, late 1975, when Von Schedvin asked him to paint her portrait. Perhaps it was destiny that made the young couple fall for each other instantly and their overwhelming love made him to cycle all the way from India to Sweden to be with her – a massive 3,600km journey covering 8 countries and taking over four months to complete.
Mahanandia promised to marry the woman he loved at all costs so he sold everything he owned to buy a pushbike and with just $80 in his pocket he started his journey. That was the time when only a royal king could have afforded the flight to Sweden so he chose cycling.
He cycled through the deserts of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran. On the way he slept in Bedouin tents, youth hostels or under the stars by the Caspian Sea. They kept their romance burning through letters.
India-to-sweden-letter
Mahanandia was just 9 years old when his emotional encounter with Von Schedvin sowed the seeds of love, which they make 17 years later. Born as a Dalit, he was always shunned by villagers, considered even below the dogs and cows. He was forced to sit outside the class in school and was never allowed to be seen near a temple.
Then, one day he was allowed to sit inside the classroom at the back but not to touch anyone, because a British school inspector and his wife were coming to visit. After their welcome, the inspector handed over his garland to a girl sitting in the front while his wife walked to the back and gave hers to Mahanandia. She touched his head and said, “Your lovely curly hair”.
Mahanandia was happy because of her little gesture and he rushed home to tell his mother how he was in love with the inspector’s wife. His mother presented him a palm leaf horoscope and told him that he’d marry a white woman from a faraway land. The woman would be a Taurus, involved in music and will own a jungle.

Then in 1975 when Mahanandia was 26, a broke art student in Delhi, his talent brought him opportunities, making him earn a name for himself painting the portraits of politicians and celebrities, including that of Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space. He also got permission to paint portraits in Delhi’s central square, Connaught Place.
It was in Connaught Place that he met Von Schedvin, who was 20, a traveler with a longing for India. She had come with friends from Sweden to India as she was always attracted to Indian culture with films like ‘Siddhartha’, Ravi Shankar and George Harrison’s music, etc.
She asked him to make a portrait of her. And when she returned, Mahanandia realized that Von Schedvin could be the western woman in his horoscope. Then, he came to know that she was a Taurus, she played the piano and she owned forests as her ancestors had been given a portion of Swedish woodland after helping the King in the 1700s. He told her that they are meant to be together; it’s in their stars, which shocked her.
But trusting her instinct, Von Schedvin followed Mahanandia to meet his father in Odisha, where the couple received tribal blessings. She says that she just followed her heart 100% and didn’t think anything. There was no logic behind her decision.
After spending one month together, Von Schedvin returned to Sweden while Mahanandia stayed in India as he had a year left of art school. But their time apart only strengthened his will to see her again and in January 1977 he wrote a letter to her telling her about his plan to cycle all the way to Sweden and make her his wife.
The Hippie Trail stretched from India through Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey and former Yugoslavia to Europe and travelers didn’t need a visa that time. Also the region was safe and stable.

Mahanandia left Delhi with just $80 on two wheels but by the time he reached Sweden, he had made over $800 by painting portraits for food and money along the way. He says he cycled for love, but he never loved biking.
On some days he cycled up to 70km. However, he took lifts wherever possible and was even gifted a train ticket from Istanbul to Vienna. He finally reached Boras on 28 May 1977, over four months after his departure from Delhi.
Some friends thought their ‘holiday romance’ wouldn’t last but the couple has been together in Sweden for 40 years now and they have two children, Sid and Emelie. Alongside of their story, Von Schedvin’s music-teaching career and Mahanandia’s art have flourished. The couple is also involved in promoting indigenous arts and offering cultural scholarships to Indian Dalits.
Two years ago Mahanandia was awarded an honorary doctorate from his state university, and in the year 2005 he was also nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
India-to-sweden-children
After almost four decades of marriage and two children, their impressive love story was recently shared on Facebook and it got viral instantly being shared tens of thousands of times. And now the couple’s story has also reportedly sparked the interest of film makers.

    Narendra Damodar Jadhav (born 1953) is an Indian economist, educationist, public policy expert, distinguished professor and writer in English, Marathi and Hindi.
    Currently he is a Member of Rajya Sabha, the upper house of Indian Parliament.
    He previously served as member of the Planning Commission of India and the National Advisory Council. Prior to this, he worked as Vice Chancellor of Savitribai Phule Pune UniversityInternational Monetary Fund (IMF) and headed economic research at the Reserve Bank of India.[3]
    The life-story of Dr. Narendra Jadhav is a story of the emerging resurgent India and its great potential. From a modest start, as a first-generation learner from a poor Dalit family in Mumbai, Dr Narendra Jadhav grew up to be a public figure, undaunted by social and economic deprivation, making on his way a distinctive mark in several areas, including, Economics, Education, Literature, Culture and Public Policy. His contribution to different fields of public life, fighting against all odds, has earned him wide recognition. He is a recipient of 67 national and international awards including four Honorary D.Litt Degrees and the title ‘Commander of the Order of Academic Palms’ by the Government of France.[4]

    Hon. Former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh commented in 2005:
    “Like the life of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, or indeed the life of our beloved former president, the Late Dr. K.R. Narayanan, the life story of Dr. Jadhav is also a story of change, of great courage, of progress, of hope …… I urge all political leaders and social reformers to read both the autobiography of Dr. Jadhav and his treatise on ‘Re-Emerging India’. We must draw the correct lessons from both. Narendra’s autobiography must shape our social and political vision. It must shape our educational policy. His book on the Indian economy must shape our thinking on economic policy.” [5]

    Early life and Education[edit]

    Narendra Jadhav was born on 28 May 1953 to a Mahar Dalit family from the village of Ozar (Nashik District) and grew up in Mumbai suburb of Wadala.[6] Jadhav attended Chhabildas High School, Dadar.

Biography

Early life

Andrews was born in LondonEngland to Nirmala, a psychologist, and Stanley Andrews, a businessman, both immigrants from Kerala, India. He was raised in WandsworthSouth London (beside the River Thames) and had what he has described as a "very repressive" upbringing.[3] At the age of 16, whilst at Emanuel School, he fell in love with his mathematics teacher, Geraldine Feakins with whom he had a son, Jaisal, born in 1992. Andrews was quoted in an interview later on saying that "[his] father would call [him] a prostitute" about being famous at his school "for going out with a maths teacher".

Career

Andrews went on and auditioned for drama school. He was accepted at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Ewan McGregor and David Thewlis. His studies paid off when he won a role in Hanif Kureshi's film, London Kills Me (1991). He is best known for his role as Kip in The English Patient (1996) and as Sayid in the popular television series Lost (2004). In 2006, he was voted one of People magazine's World's Most Beautiful People.

Personal life

Andrews is a recovering drug addict and alcoholic. He suffered from these conditions when he lived in London during his early twenties, and his promising screen career nearly ended. Andrews moved across the Atlantic to the United States to seek rehabilitation and get his life back on track. His efforts were successful, but he says that London provides painful memories of his alcohol and heroin addictions.

Andrews is in a relationship with actress Barbara Hershey and they live in Los Angeles. The couple separated briefly in 2005 and, during that time, Andrews had a son with another woman. He and Hershey later reconciled. In July 2006, Andrews was photographed kissing an unknown woman on Manhattan Beach, but his representative said that he and Hershey are still together
