The last three to four days saw the headlines mentioning the name of a man named Malli Mastan Babu but to be honest, there are many among us who have heard the name for the first time. He is the pride of India who has carved a niche for himself in the world of mountaineering and lost his life in the mountains.

Now, news is that a movie is being planned by Mastan’s friends and sources say his friends hired a chartered plane to trace out his body in the Andes Mountains that is their friendship. Eventually, even PM Modi also tweeted about Malli Mastan Babu. As such, Mastan Babu didn’t get his due recognition.

Hailing from a financially backward family and even socially, he has emerged against all odds. He became a highly educated individual by studying at IIT and IIM. He is also a motivational speaker in corporate with multilingual skills and good grasping abilities. Unfortunately, he has never received any encouragement from the government. In fact, some of them discouraged him. But he has overcome all these challenges and with support from friends he created a Guinness record. Some are saying Mastan deserves an Arjuna award but he didn’t get it. Hence, discouragement from the system and how Mastan got past all these odds forms the crux of this movie.
