Dear Sudhir,
Pune girl Krushnaa Patil has successfully scaled, the highest peak of Antarctica on Dec 22, 2009. Did you know this? She made it braving temperatures of minus 50 degrees celsius and howling chilly winds.We are all proud of her achievements. I would like you to brief us on this.

Hi, Mannab; that is really a great achievement from Krushnaa scaling the highest peak in Antarctica, the Mount Vinson at 4897 m (16067 ft). More on this later.

Dear Sudhir,
There is one more exciting news. Delhi's Ms Reena Kaushal, an outdoor instructor became the first Indian woman to ski to the South Pole.
Ms Kaushal (38), settled in Delhi, made the historic ski-run as part of an eight-woman Commonwealth team which made a 900 kilometre Antarctic ice trek to reach the South Pole to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Commonwealth. Skiing eight to 10 hours a day, Ms Kaushal along with her mates crossed the frozen southern continent to the pole in about 40 days.
Besides India, the expedition comprised women from Brunei, Cyprus, Ghana, Jamaica, New Zealand, Singapore and
Britain.
I would request you to give us more info on this achievement.
