Its easier talking than doing. How many of us really take initiatives to show our concern or help some causes we feel worried about? Here is a young man who didn’t stop with his feeling for the cause but has plunged into an action to support the cause.
As I write this post, Sadhosh Kumar has already set out on his journey towards the Everest. Yesterday he was at Namche Bazaar, 3460m above mean sea level, a famous spot enroute Everest Base Camp. We’ll give more updates on his climb on a regular basis.
Sandhosh Kumar hails from South India who graduated and worked in Singapore as an Investment Banker and realized his deep passion for climbing mountains. Sandhosh Kumar is a guy who has always been an adrenalin chaser and he developed a fascination for snow-capped mountains over the last few years and that’s how he wanted to change his passion to reach out a good cause. Sandhosh Kumar says as he climbs more, he realized that the chase for personal quest alone wasn’t enough. There are many problems in this world and he wanted his climbs to mean more to him and the world. Hence, he embarked on a journey to highlight the problem closest to his heart, the problem of child sexual abuse, which is highly prevalent in India, while he attempted to scale the highest mountain in the world.
To mention few of his earlier achievements he climbed some of the highest peaks in the world- Cho Oyu (8201m), Mont Blanc in Western Europe (4810m), Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa (5895m) and Everest Base Camp. Sandhosh Kumar is all set to take off for an ambitious mission of climbing Mount Everest, besides climbing Everest he is actively supporting the cause of Child Sexual Abuse through pursuing his passion for climbing mountains. He has come up with a novel plan to raise funds — for the expedition as well as to help the organizations in raising funds. He has been meeting with corporates and individuals through a campaign titled “ClimbEverestWithMe” to substitute his expedition cost and raise funds for child sexual abuse.
Please check the video below where Sandhosh Kumar is interviewed about his mission and passion by Shrinidhi Hande Sandhosh Kumar was one of the participants in the prestigious achievers gang-up “Cerebrate”
Here’s how you can keep up with Sandhosh’s progress as he climbs world’s highest peak.

Should I, as a CEO, blog for my company? What is the advantage by doing that? What are the negatives that could come out of it? – These are the most frequently thought over questions by CEOs before making their decision. We will try to answer these questions for you.
Whether to blog or not is of course a personal decision, but there are a few factors that you could consider before taking the decision.
People are very interested in hearing what a CEO of a company has to say. So, from the company’s side the corporate blog gets much more readership when the CEO blogs. Also, people would be very interested to post comments and feedbacks on the blog. If they get a reply to their comments, it boosts the people’s trust towards the company. They start to think ‘Here is a company that really cares about what we feel! Great!’
But mind, there would be little time for you to spend on blogging. So, the update frequency of the blog would not be constant. So, the people reading your blog would not know when to come back to check a new blog. If they get disappointed with the update frequency, there is a high chance they might abandon the blog. So, If you think, as a CEO you have little time to blog and you can’t come up with regular posts, It is better not to enter into blogging. Do not even consider a Ghost Writer.
It is always better to consider both sides of the coin, so we must discuss the negatives that could come out the blog. What you say in the blog is as powerful as what you say in a media interview. There is a high chance that your competitor is following your blog. So, take care as to what you put in your blog. Someone might post awkward comment or question in your comments section. If handled carefully it adds as a big positive opinion boost to your company. But, suppose if the comment/question is ignored or mishandled, it could create a negative impact.
On the whole, with a little care, if you could blog regularly, just go ahead, it could prove out to be a big success.
Here are some good CEO blogs worth having a look at-
