Former Gurkha from British Army Plans to Break Limitations Imposed By Disability

After losing his legs in Afghanistan, a former Gurkha British soldier has planned to break the boundaries of his disability in 2018 by standing at the top of the highest peak of the world. 

While talking at an interview with his daily newspaper, the 37-year-old Hari Budha Magar said today that within the next few days he plans to leave for the region of Gosiakunda to start his climb to the 5,145 meter high Surya Peak. Theex-soldierr of Royal Gurkha Rifles has also planned to take part in a skiing race, in addition to trying to climb the peak with his prosthetic legs, to train him for the challenges he has to face in future. According to him, he has planned to climb Mount Everest from the Nepal side in the spring season, which has not been achieved by anyone with double leg amputation above the knees till date.

The permanent resident of Rolpa district, Budha Magar, further said that he wanted to inspire physically impaired people, who have determination and courage, along with physically injured people of the world, after becoming a role model for them. 

The managing director at Himalayan Ski Trek, Krishna Thapa, who also manages the expedition trips of Budha Magar, acclaimed him as a man of determination and courage. He further added that the expedition of Conquering Our Dreams’, specially designed for a team of combat veteran fellows of Budha Magar, will be handled by the Myrmidon Expeditions, based in U.S.

It's safe to say this former Gurkha from the British army is doing everything he can to break the limitations imposed by his disability.
