7-year-old from Hyderabad scales Mt Kilimanjaro; says 'scared, but wanted to reach goal'

"I was scared but all I wanted was to reach my goal," says Virat Chandra, the 7-year-old from Hyderabad who could be perhaps one of the youngest to have scaled Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. He achieved the rare feat on March 6. Virat's coach Bharath said that he decided to take Virat for mountaineering after a month-long rigorous training. "Virat has that passion in him. He was very excited to train. Unlike many who quit midway through the training," says Bharath.
