Sure, Sir Edmund Hillary got all the accolades for being the first to scale Everest.
But the locals celebrate someone else — Tenzing Norgay, the sherpa who some say beat Hillary to the summit of the world’s highest mountain.
Then the Sherpa should have the accolades of the one to reach Summit first. Its unfair to leave the Sherpa out of this equation, he is the hero here.
History should be amended to prove the Sherpa is first.
