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.

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.
