First poet to launch poetry book on Mt. Everest.

Background Information

I was born in the cosy lap of Queen of hills 'Darjeeling'. I studied in Central School for Tibetans Darjeeling... may be just because of the marvel of the nature that my eyes perceived in Darjeeling... particularly on the roads of mall road that came on my way to school.... listening to the sweet chirping of the birds and the whispering of the cold winds and the intensity of the fog that encircled the area most of the time, transformed once a naughty and shabby child into a poet....
