Sir Edmund Hillary died at the age of 88

Sir Edmund Hillary,88, was rushed to Auckland City Hospital(New Zealand) after a heart attack but passed away this morning at 9 am. He was the great adventurer and humanitarian who set the world's first ever record together with Nepalese Mr. Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to scale Earth's Highest Peak Mt. Everest(Sagarmatha) in 1953.
Sir Edmond Hillary
Right now, New Zealand is in deep shock and paying tribute to him. He was a hero of New Zealanders and everyone in the country considered him as a role model. He often described himself as a modest guy but we know he is the emblem of great bravery.

He ended the debate of who reached the summit first by revealing things in his book 'View from the Summit' where he'd written things which he publicly denied to say.

"I continued cutting a line of steps upwards," he wrote.

"Next moment I had moved on to a flattish exposed area of snow with nothing but space in every direction. Tenzing quickly joined me and we looked round in wonder. To our immense satisfaction we realised we had reached the top of the world."

Nepal and Nepalese Sherpas will be always and always grateful towards Sir Edmund Hillary's contributions for whatever he had done good for them, for bringing Rays of hope to poor local people,and for everything he's done with virtuous intentions to uplift the social,economic and education standard of Sherpas. He opened the gate for other westerners. He'll be always remembered and I'm sure, Sherpas and Nepalese are in big grief to learn about this tragic incident, demise of great New Zealander hero Sir Edmund Hillary. May his soul Rest in Peace.

Tenjing Norgey sherpa took the citizenship of India and started to live in Darjelling. At the time one Nepali leaving his Nepali Citizenship, Hillary(a foreigner) was doing something for Nepalese People.I didn't mean that Norgey did wrong, may his life bounded him to do that. I just wanted say how nice was Hillary.

But One thing is asthonising me that why didn't he carry his own country's(New Zealand) flag while climbing the Everest. He took 4 flags, UN, Nepal, India and Britain.I haven't got the answer of it since I knew abt it.

Is there anyone in this blog who had done conversation or interview with Hillary. If there is no one, then also no problem because I will get the answer myself when I will reach in the heaven. What if i got hell ???? :-)

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
