An overwhelmed Sahu says, “I believe that life is like a mountain—full of ups and downs and we have to struggle continuously moving forward in our lives. Moving forward with a positive mindset and thinking rather than focusing just on the negatives always brings results of our efforts”. 

Speaking about the difficulty of being an amputee with a prosthetic leg, Sahu further says, “You have to put 65 percent more strength and energy than a normal person, having a prosthetic leg and when you are at a higher altitude in the mountain the oxygen level is also low and you are a little slower than the rest, so it becomes more difficult”.

All of 28 Chitrasen Sahu started off with the dream to complete climbing 7 peaks in 7 continents and named it “mission inclusion”. By now, he has successfully completed climbing Mount Kosciuszko in Australia and Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. He has an objective of bringing behavioral change in people and also making the world plastic-free. 

Speaking about him being physically challenged, Sahu said, “We are not less than anyone, nor are we different, so we want all to treat us equally. We don’t want any mercy”. He has started preparing for his fourth expedition as he speaks and aspires of fulfilling his dream.
