We’re honored to contribute to TSAF members Swarnalata Dalai, Poonam Rana & Sandeep Toliya accomplishing a remarkable feat. The trio didn’t just summit Mt. Everest today but pushed their way through life-batting situations. Congratulations, we are truly inspired! pic.twitter.com/pt07P5dxr0- Tata Steel (@TataSteelLtd) May 21, 2018
The two mountaineers had been undergoing training at the TSAF for the past one year.
