Arjun Vajpai

He faced breathing issues, given that his lung capacity was less than an adult’s. He also struggled with loss of appetite and tough living conditions at very high altitudes but his daredevil attitude took Arjun Vajpai to the roof of the world as the youngest Indian. He was 16 years and 11 months old when he scaled Mount Everest on May 29, 2010.
He has not rested on his oars after Everest, succeeding as the youngest climber atop Lhotse and the more dangerous Mt Manaslu. Not even heavy rainfall and landslides and an earthquake could shift his focus or his determination to succeed the Mt Manaslu expedition. He will also soon embark on a mission to the Poles and also hopes to become the first Indian to scale K2. 
At an age when most Indians are making that transition to being young adults, he has has stared death in the face not a few times but he has learnt to react positively to this challenge. He has also learnt to seek new horizons as he pushes himself to the limit.
For one so young, Arjun Vajpai is the personification of daredevilry as an attitude developed over a number of years. It is our pleasure to welcome him into our fold as a Delhi Daredevils Superfan.
