  Everest 2006: First English Poetry Book Launched On Mt. Everest


 

On 15th of May 2006, Mr. Sonam Bhote not only scaled the top of the Mt. Everest for the first time in his life but he also launched the English Poetry Book titled, “BARDS’ SKETCHES” written by Mr. Wangdi Gyalpo (Head of English Department, Shuvatara International School, Lalitpur, Kathmandu) and Mr. Sonam Bhote. With the launch of the poetry book titled, “BARDS’ SKETCHES” on top of the world, it became the first ever English Poetry book launched on top of the world, Mt. Everest in the world history that to by Non-English.

Mr. Sonam Bhote was born in a small hamlet called ‘Sandakphu’ Nepal. His writings are published in different websites. Mr. Wangdi Gyalpo was born in a cozy environment of Darjeeling. In his credit he has many international certificates. Some of his poetry reached as the finalist in the International Open Poetry Competition, conducted by International Library of Poetry, Washington D.C. He was nominated as a poet of the year and awarded the Outstanding Achievement in Poetry by the International Library of Poetry, Washington D.C. He was selected as author of the month by Association of Young Journalist and Writer, New York. His writings are found in different international poetry portals.

The fascinating thing about both of them is that, though born in different places, time brought them together. Both of them studied in Central School for Tibetans Darjeeling, India. They are not only childhood friends but also cousins. They came to Kathmandu in almost at the same time and started working in their respective field.

The main intention behind launching our book on top of the World is to prove to the world that, Sherpas and Tibetans who are basically regarded as Mountaineer and High Altitude Porter that, besides climbing they also possess caliber in literature. Further, they added that, they want to arouse the awareness among Sherpas and Tibetans about the poetry.
