Sudarshan Neupane (1976) Trecker’s dream / Trekerski san

21 Oct , 2023  

Most people know the American dream, but we just learned what the tracker dream means. It wasn’t difficult because the organizer of the trek to Everest Base Camp was better than all the previous ones, and he shared his life story at an unusual dinner. As the sixteenth child in the family, he left home at the age of 16 with 100 rupees (less than $1) given to him by his mother, barely enough to travel to the big city of Kathmandu. Finding yourself in Kathmandu, even with a lot of money, can seem frightening because the noisy streets, traffic, and all those people look like a beehive at first glance. He solved the hunger that gripped him like in a movie, for the food he got, he wiped the dust off the large leaves of plants in the restaurant’s yard, which the owner liked. Afterward, he progressed from the dishwasher to the chef’s assistant and finally to the start of trekking, first as a porter and then as an assistant guide. Obviously, he found himself where he belonged because his qualities were recognized by clients and his family, which contributed to the arranged wedding. After that, Sudarshan climbed step by step until he reached his tour agency, the first hotel, and so on. Who knows where he would be now if it hadn’t been for the 2015 earthquake and Covid-19? In this way, after significant financial losses, Sudarshan is again doing what he knows best to expand his business, so in addition to the MUMS Hotel he saved, he opened a nightclub in Pohara. Still, he also dreams of entering Europe via Portugal. In the end, we can only wish to see him at his new hotel in Lisbon and thank him again for a well-organized trek and for solving several critical situations that only a good manager can solve. And that is exactly Sudarshan.

Većina ljudi zna za američki san, a mi sam upravo naučili šta znači trekerski san. Nije ni bilo teško jer je organizator treka na Everest Base Camp, ne samo bio bolji od svih prethodnih, već je na neobičnoj večeri ispraćao svoju životnu priču. Kao šesnaesto dete u porodici, sa 16. godina je napustio kuću sa 100 rupija (manje od 1 dolara) koja mu je dala majka, jedva dovoljno za put u veliki grad Katmandu. Naći se u Katamnduu,// i sa mnogo para može da izgleda strašno, jer uzavrele ulice, saobraćaj i svi ti ljudi na prvi pogled izgledaju kao košnica. Glad koja ga je obuzimala je rešio kao na filmu, za dobivenu hranu je obrisao prašinu sa velikih listova biljaka u dvorištu restorana, što se dopalo vlasniku, pa je samo napredovao preko perača sudova, do pomoćnika kuvara i konačno do početka bavljenja trekingom, prvo kao nosač, a zatim kao pomoćnik vodiča. Očigledno da se našao gde pripada jer su njegove kvalitete prepoznali ne samo klijenti, već i domaći, što je verovatno doprinelo i ugovorenom venčanju. Nakon toga Sudaršan se peo stepenicu po stepenicu, dok nije došao do svoje tur agencije, prvog hotela i tako redom. Da nije bilo zemljotresa 2015. i Covida -19 ko zna gde bi bio sada. Ovako posle velikih finanijskih gubitaka, Sudarshan ponovo radi ono što ume najbolje širi svoj biznis, pa pored MUMS Hotela koji je sačuvao otvara noćni klub u Pokhari, ali mašta i o ulasku u Evropu, preko Portugalije. Mi na kraju možemo samo da mu poželimo da se vidimo u njegovom novom hotelu u Lisabonu i još jednom zahvalimo ne samo na dobro organizovanom treku, već i rešavanju nekoliko kritičnih situacija koje samo dobar mandžer može da reši. A to je upravo Sudashan.
