Talking about how he came to go on the ‘Kailash Yatra’, Dr. Om said that when he was young he was always engaged in the Lord’s worship. As he grew up although he left the rituals behind but he carried forward the sacraments with him. A colleague convinced him to go on the trip. He did not think about its difficulty and only focused on the adventure. His father always told him to write on the ‘Shivalaya’ and after the ‘Yatra’ he felt he could finally do so. He wrote the book after 1 year of research and added in his own experiences of the ‘Yatra’.
