Journey to Basic Mountaineerig Course at Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (HMI)


Prasenjit Mukherjee (After BMC at HMI)
HMI (Himalayan Mountaineering Institute) was not well known to me but for recent past. Of late members from our team are frequent trainees in HMI. Last December, it was the turn of Prasenjit, and this time, Dipankar Banerjee starts his 28-day long training today. Yesterday was the day to see-off at Sealdah.  We attended him. Depankar, a high school teacher by profession, was rather excited and at the same time bit low for he has to leave his family behind for so long days! Okay! This is how life goes on.

What I get from those completed BMC is that each day you face new and stronger challenges which will take litmus test on your character. You feel helpless. You feel frustrated, fatigued, depressed. But you need inner strength to keep on going. You need to overcome your weakness by shear mental strength. This helps developing character.

Fortunate to meet lots of HMI-ans of late! They look simple. But so far as mountaineering goes, they are real marvels! The paths that anyone would dare to go, they take on by choice with full gaity.

Anyway, I am not the expert to comment on HMI. Someday, I will videograph those who have completed BMC from HMI and update this post. Till then let me share few pictures of my friends / brothers during their HMI days. And surely, a snap of HAPPY JOURNEY episode to Dipankar Banerjee.

BTW did I mention, I got my new phone. This OPPO A5S has 4GB RAM, 64 GB Memory. Battery stands for nearly 24 hours. Considering my usage as hotspot for soft browsing, this sounds good. Picture is OPPO class. But I really do not like OPPO hiding ages. It should be original. But they are using some filter in Camera to look you younger needlessly. Sound is good but not like Samsung. It lacks that sharpness and brilliance. The set is lightweight and grips well. 

Few links for those interest on HMI:-
That's the staff I had tonight.

Lastly, I have revised my Joomla learning and created a Joomla site after many years. It is always great to maneuver a CMS as powerful as Joomla 3.*. This is the site.  WB ePension Guide (This is a helpful guide for Govt. Employees who want to apply for Pension and also for the schools to fill up pension papers.
