Want a hair-raising glimpse of those terrible slopes where a Bangladeshi mountaineer’s heroic death inspired homegirl Arunima Sinha to complete her climb in a stranger's honour? What is it like to look down on multiple 6,500 and 7,000-plus metre peaks, all part of the southern view from the summit? With 350 stunning images spread over 250 pages, mountaineer and entrepreneur Aditya Gupta’s 7 Lessons from Everest is a unique photographical offering that aims to raise Rs 1 crore for children orphaned in the Covid-19 pandemic. With the Indian society and government having no social security or plan to identify them, they are a talking point.

The IIT Roorkee graduate’s The Rug Republic, a home decor brand, has joined hands with CRY (Child Rights and You) to organise this effort. Every time someone donates Rs 4,000 or more to CRY, The Rug Republic will send the person the coffee table book. Conversely, every purchase made of 7 Lessons from Everest gets directly donated to CRY. Donors can directly transfer the money to CRY using the links available on Buy this book to surprise the mountaineer in your family!
