Following is a PTI report:

New Delhi:  After scaling the Mount Everest, Jogabyasa Bhoi, a primary teacher from Kalahandi in Orissa, has successfully conquered the highest mountain peak in Europe — Mount Elbruse –, spreading the message of women’s empowerment in the process.

The 32-year-old Bhoi completed the expedition in Russia on May 7 along with nine others after one member of the 11-strong contingent beat a retreat due to illness.

This was Bhoi’s third continental summit without oxygen support. While at the peak, Bhoi took the opportunity to spread the message of women’s empowerment by holding out a banner which read “Nourish, Protect and Respect all women for a glorious & proud Nation.”

Besides, he also wished a belated Happy Birthday to Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who tuned 40 on April 24.

Bhoi had scaled the Everest in May, 2011.
