Land World Record

Kumar Post (Siachen Glacier)

History was created today when 08 People with Disabilities reached Kumar Post on Siachen Glacier at an altitude of 15,632 feet. The team of 08 People with Disabilities was trained and led by Team CLAW, a team of Special Forces Veterans from Indian Armed Forces.

The team ascended 4,000 ft, gradually, while scaling the Glacier. The route involved crossing several deep crevasses, icy glacial water streams, hard-ice stretches and undulating rocky moraines. This not just tested the physical endurance and mental stamina, but also the ice-craft skills of the participants, like – use of ice axe, crampons, ladder crossing and rope skills.

Snapping the chains of fear and limitations,

Amidst the chaos of reality,

Emerging from the shadows of War,

A Team of Special Forces Veterans,

Shattering boundaries of creation,

And redefining what it means to be Free.

Our Vision

To provide ‘Full Spectrum Rehabilitation’ to include skilling and further gainful employment of every person shouldering disability on planet earth, through cutting edge research and creation of appropriate enabling ecosystems.

‘Special Forces’ is an instinct. Every human being has it. It operates from a mind space where faith, self-realization, skill, brotherhood, ability and freedom, are, all rolled into love as the driving factors of focused thought and effective action. 

CLAW

Over time, it develops into a razor-sharp ‘Survive, Stabilize and Thrive’ mindset by enduring life’s extreme challenges, repeatedly, by chance or by choice.

Eventually realising that you can conquer. Anything. People who live on the cutting edges of humanity operate from this mindset. In this case, people with disabilities, the veterans and skilled people and visionaries from across the world who are coming together to make this dream project a powerful reality.
