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.
