काश बीड़ी होती !
The two person in this frame are my best friends of mountaineering course days. One in the right was carrying 14 packs of Bidi with him which he only shared with me and the Left one was sober since birth (Sanskar), with a very great sense of humor.
I asked Mr. Right not to take Bidis to the summit camp as it’s not a good thing to smoke at High altitude to which he agreed.
That day we woke up at 2 a.m. as we had to start the climbing at 2:30 a.m. The climb was not supposed to be hard, But thanks to the fresh snowfall during the last few days we were knee deep inside the snow, it was very tough to cut way through the snow but somehow we managed to Summit at 12:45 p.m. and made it back to the summit camp at around 4:30 p.m.
Tired and exhausted none of us went for dinner that night. After having dryfruits and chocolates, we inside our sleeping bags. We were listing to music and suddenly I asked Mr. Right that “ Bhai beedi hoti the Swarg mil jata yahi”(It would be great if we had bidi) he gave me a devilish smile and start searching his Rucksack, Within a minute he light up two bidis, handed over one to me, I gave him hi5 and we started smoking. Meanwhile the Sanskari started abusing us, he is hilarious and unstoppable when he does that. But soon the tent converted into a HOTBOX full of smoke and the Sankari friend had a hard time in breathing, so he had to get out of his cozy sleeping bag and leave the tent and it was freezing cold outside(The tent was pitched on glacier at the Height of 15800ft). He was shivering when he came back inside and we couldn’t resist laughing. After few minutes of good laugh we finally slept and but the Sanskari friend forgot to Zip-up the Inner layer of tent.
The next morning we woke up with a thin layer of frozen snowflakes on the inner layer of our tent and our sleeping bags were wet from outside. That was the last day he shared tent with us or he made sure that we never smoke inside the tent during the next 3 expeditions.
