Himalayas -the Home of Lord Shiva and sages several!
As the loftiest mountains on Earth, Himalayas embody
Highest ideals and aspirations. sight of their sublime peaks,
Soaring high and clean above the dusty, congested plains ,
For centuries inspired visions of transcendent splendor and
Spiritual liberation. Puranas, ancient works of Hindu mythology,
Say of Himalayas: In the space of a hundred ages of the Gods,
Glories of Himachal where Siva dwells and where the Ganges
Falls like the tendril of a lotus from the foot of Vishnu.
In no other mountains Found Mount Kailas and Lake Manasarovar.
As the dew is dried up By the morning sun, so are the sins of
Mankind by the sight of Himachal!
We salute first Indian woman Bachendra Pal who reached the great peak!
