From the preface: 'Major Narendra Dhar Jayal – 'Nandu' to all his many friends – died of pulmonary oedema on Cho-Oyu in 1958. Very early in life as a boy at the Doon School he made his mark as a mountaineer and when he died seventeen years later he was unquestionably the most experienced and skillful climber among Indian amateurs.'
