Haryana mountaineer Mamta scales Mount Elbrus

After scaling Mount Everest and Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, Mamta Sauda has added another feature to her cap having successfully climbed Europe's tallest peak, Mount Elbrus recently.

Mamta, a Haryana police service (HPS) officer, says her goal now is to conquer the tallest peaks in the remaining continents. "I scaled Elbrus on September 7. It was a great feeling, hoisting the tri-colour. In May 2010, I had hoisted the national flag on Mount Everest followed by Kilimanjaro (on June 20)," Mamta said here.

"I have conquered the tallest peaks in Asia, Africa and Europe and now I want to scale the tallest peaks in the remaining continents," she added.

Mamta said hoisting the Indian flag at some of the tallest mountains in the world gives a feeling which could not be expressed in words. "Hoisting the tri-colour at some of the tallest peaks in the world gives you a feeling that cannot be explained in words," she said.

Mamta, who was appointed Deputy Superintendent of Police by the Haryana government last year, is also excited about her role as a cop.

"The image of police as merely a lathi-wielding force has changed. If I talk about Haryana Police, it has gone hi-tech and is citizen-centric," she said.
