I recently watched the movie ‘Everest’ and first things first, I must say that it’s a visually breathtaking flick. But it got me thinking on the reasons why mountaineers do what they do.

Whether it’s the fun or the dream of conquering the impossible; the craze for living life at the edge or the fame associated with it, mountaineers have their reasons. And it’s the case with not only mountaineers but adrenalin junkies in general.

For many, this so called ‘adventurous’ life is nothing but a waste of money and public health resources. But for those who live on challenges, such experiences give meaning to their lives. It defines their personality and their day to day outlook.

    the adrenaline rush of an adventure can be addictive. Those who are passionate about it are already doing it 🙂

      Totally agree Rajlakshmi. While many of us may not understand these adrenalin junkies, they surely have a passion of their own which makes them do what they do with utmost conviction.

      Thanks for stopping by. Welcome to my blog :).

    I couldn’t bring myself to watch Everest. I thought it would be too intense and too sad. Yes?

    • aseemrastogi2

      True, it’s quite intense and must say scary as well in the sense that the magnanimity of the mountain and it’s powers get to you. But then, some always have the will to achieve the impossible, don’t they?
