Kathmandu [Nepal], May 22 (ANI): India's youngest women to scale Mount Everest Shivangi Pathak tied Rakhi to a fellow mountaineer while sitting at the top of the mountain.
A student of Delhi's Jawahar Institute of Mountain Pathak said that one of her dreams has been fulfilled after tying the rakhi.
"I had always dreamed of having a real brother and today that dream has been fulfilled", Pathak said.
Further, the fellow mountaineer who was being tied the rakhi said that he would forever take care of Shivangi like a little sister.
Sixteen-year-old Shivangi had earlier said that women can achieve anything they want if they have the desire.
"They (women) can achieve anything if they desire. If I can make it, if Arunima Sinha (first Indian amputee to climb Mt Everest) can summit the Mount Everest then they can do anything," she told ANI.
Now after climbing the world's highest peak, Pathak wants to focus on her studies and do the mountaineering alongside. (ANI)
