    # 136 Sir Edmund Hillary. I'll take issue with your post: The word is Rakshasa. (Himdu Mythology) Sanskrit (Male)Raksasa. Sanskrit (Female) Raksasi. A type of Demon,or Goblin. Yeti,is the name of the Abominable Snowman,& not as you stated. There is no 'Yenti' here. The Yeti has been prowling the Himalays since man has spun tales of colour. Are you mixing Yenti/Yenta Yiddish with Yeti ? Secondly. I don't knpw why you are so proud of the name you chose. Edmund Hillary,(Later knighted ,Sir) Was not the first man ON THAT EXPIDITION to reach Mount Everest. That glory is Tensing's a Sherpa. He was the first. And no matter how many titles the Queen might bestow upon him. It is still Tensing. By the way,George Mallory,a British,climber was perhaps the first.1924.Who knows ? Sir Edmund Hillary,a New Zealander.
