After B.Sc., Anand takes admission for M.Sc. in Physics at the University of Pune. He decides to climb the Everest after two years. However, education at Pune University becomes very tough for him. Once, while sleeping in the hostel, he dreams that he is hoisting the tricolor national flag of India at the top of the mountain. This dream reminded him of his childhood fantasy and in turn disturbed him a lot. After M.Sc. first year examination he once again goes to Manali for the Advanced Course. He went to this Course by telling lies at home. During this Course he climbs a mountain 17000 feet high called “Friendship peak.” However, due to bad weather he had to concede defeat at a mere distance of 100 feet from the summit.
