MIR Challenge is just three weeks away! That also means we are close to the end of the semester’s training and very soon, the end of MIR 20.
Quote of the Week
Everyone searches for something slightly different when they first join MIR. Throughout the years, Kumaran has seen that those who stay realise that there is “a bigger community, a bigger calling, a bigger goal, than just the individual things they are searching for.”
– Excerpt from Interview with Dr Kumaran, MIR Book Project Interview Transcripts
Joining MIR in 2008, Dr Kumaran served as the Marketing IC, in which he helped organise fundraising events like Make Love Real. He went on to summit Everest in 2012, and has climbed Mustagh Ata, Cho Oyu, Makalu and K2. Dr Kumaran was also involved in several community and humanitarian projects in Nepal. Notably, he helped set up clinics in Phortse, computer labs in Ghorka and provided medical aid following the 2015 Nepalese earthquake. Read about him in the press here!
