"The nearer we are to [beasts and] birds, the more we are in the hells of emotion. We call it love. It is self-hypnotization. We are under the control of our [emotions] like animals. A cow can sacrifice its life for its young. Every animal can. What of that? .. What is the difference between men and animals? ...‘Food and [sleep], procreation of the species, and fear exist in common with the animals. There is one difference: Man can control all these and become God... Animals cannot do it." - Swami Vivekananda

             Two climbers dead, seven missing on K2

 

 

     Rome, Aug 2 (DPA) Two climbers from an international expedition have died on K2 mountain in the Himalayas, and seven members of the team have gone missing, Italian media reported Saturday.

 

 

     A Serbian and a Korean climber died as the 17-member rope team attempted to conquer K2, the second highest mountain in the world at 8,611 metres above sea level, the reports quoted rescue operation coordinator Agostino Da Polenza as saying.

 

 

     The team also included climbers from the Netherlands, Norway and Italy. There were no Italians among the missing, the reports said.

 

 

     Fallen ice was hampering the rescue effort, it said.

 

 

     Da Polenza had led last month's rescue efforts in saving two Italian climbers on Nanga Parbat.
