यसोदा दिदीले 'Sometimes money buy happiness' भन्न नपाउँदै गितिका दिदिले 'Money can buy happiness almost every time' भनिहाल्नु भयो।
पैसाले कहिले सुख दिन्छ त कहिले काही दु:ख। साँच्चै यो पैसा भन्ने कुरा, हुँदा पनि नहुने नहुँदा पनि नहुने चिज रहेछ।

I visited Singapore, Canada,remote parts of the village through those books in Documentaion Centre.
One day, as usual days I was organising the books, I found a note book. I became curious towards this document because it was hand written.Otherwise all the books are printed.
The other factor that attracted me to look this particular note book was the beautiful handwriting of the writer and the language.
When,I scrolled down my eyes to this note book I found its language very interesting.The language is very direct. We can feel Nepali sound while reading it.The grammars are not correct( Although I am weak in English I could feel it).
Later I came to know the name of writer. Her name is Archana Thapa. She was a married women which I came to know after reading her notes. Where is she? What is she doing? I don't know anything about her.
But the message of the notes are very important to us as they reflect our real society.
A part of her notes goes like this:
Nov 20th Thursday
Female,18 Yrs, Kumal, Barah Gaon
[she is daughter of Dhan Bahadur Kumal]
She is studying in class 8.Before she got typhyoid thats why she was delayed in her study. In her class there are 79 students. Out of them 12 are Kumal. Her sister is studying in class 7 and in her class there are 35 Kumal. When I asked her about reason of decresing number of Kumal Students in higher class. She told one of the main reason is due to early marriage. Boys and girls at 7/8 class get marriage ownself(elope)then leave school. She said such kind of social disconstruction was in practice in her society since long ago.She told but her parents don't want to marry her soon. They always encourage her to study & they had told her they would expense in her study even by selling land,She told although her mother is illiterate if they didn't study she scold them.
on my question about behavior of teacher with Kumal Students, she told their teacher never encourage them.Bahun Chhetri students are good in studies than Kumal because they don't have to do household work like them.Also they take extra tution,coaching.But Kumal can not afford extra money on tution, coaching. Bahun Chhetri students understand lesson easily but kumal students are dull $ can't understand their lesson.But they don't tell their teacher about this due to fear and shame because otherwise teacher scold them . Their teacher usually scolded them saying"when can we improve by teaching rotten like you".and also says"what will you do by study,you can't do anything". She said .so she doesn't like them she said.
One time her Bahun chhetri friends told why they kumal comes school.They don't study. They (kumal) come only to disturb them.Then she discussed with her kumal friends and they together quarreled with them saying why they (Bahun,Chhetri)come in Kumal area, go in their own area. After this they hesitate to speak ill of Kumals.
She said nowadays Kumal are improving in education.4 Kumal are studying certificate level outside from Naukilo.

कति आनन्दायि थियो त्यो क्षण, साक्षात् बुद्धले सान्ति छर्नु भएको जस्तै।
त्यति बेला मेरो मनमा एउटै कुरा आयो'यदि म सँग क्यामेरा भएको भए'

We came to know that our grand father is hospitalized in Dharan and my uncles are taking him India for treatment.

साँच्ची मलाई कविता लेख्न मन पर्यो
कविता त मैले नलेखेको होइन
दुई तीन वटा जती लेखेको छु
सानै उमेर मा लेखर के भो
मैले मेरो कवितामा मन को बह पोखेको छु
आज फेरी कविता लेख्न मन पर्यो
त्यही भएर त यो कविता लेखिरहेको छु
र मेरो मन को बह पोखिरहेको छु।
अर्चना दिदी को blogsite मा भएको युनिकोड मा गएर थाहा पाये। अनी अशिश ले' त्यहाँ लेखेको लाई त copy paste गर्ने हो 'भने पछी बल्ल बुझे। अनी त कहिले नेपाली मा post गरु गरु जस्तो लाग्यो।
मलाई नेपाली एक दम मन पर्छ किनभने म स्कुल मा हुँदा नेपाली मा कहिले पनि फैल भ इन। नेपाली मा फेल हुने स्टुडेन्ट धेरै हुन्थे। 40 जना मा १३, १४ जना मात्र pass हुन्थ्यौ।
तर आज फर्स्ट टाईम पोस्ट गरेको हुनाले होला, अफ्ट्यारो पनि लागिरहेको छ र साथ् साथै रमाइलो पनि।

I remember every incident that she start to tell from its first line of starting. But I have to listen her as enthusiastically as I am hearing for the first time. She scolds if I didn't listen to her. If not, she says now you are big enough not to listen to me. No body cares to me as I cared all of u so much.
She tells about her father, mother, sister, brother,Kaka, kaki, phupu, boju and the villagers which she remembers.
My grandfather had a large joint family. He had 5 brothers and 3 sisters. He took all the responsibilities to grow them up. He was the second son but he fulfilled as a role of first son.
My grandfather's eldest brother was an Indian army so he stayed out of home all the time. My mom said that he didn't like the job of 'Majhya' to collect all the revenue of that area and give to government. so he asked my grandfather to do all those jobs.
My great grandfather, Prashad Majhya was a drunkard so he couldn't do his jobs as 'Majhya'. My great great grandfather was a successful Majhya so he taught my grandfather to do all the jobs of Majhya in the village. After the death of my great great grandfather my grandfather at the age of 16, took all the responsibilities of majhya.
My great grandfather left my grandfather in so much debt. But by his effort, he paid all those debt and kept his family a happy family.
I know only the surface part of his life. But he is more than what I know about him. He is a real social worker. He has contributed a lot for his village'Madi in sankhuwasava'.
Some of the contributions are:
- Established a school in Panchayat system. There was only two school in whole Sankhuwasava district at that time. And one was in his village
- He is the one to establish water mill in the village.
- He brought electricity in the village
- He along with my grandmother ( keshar maya jimee) started kitchen garden for vegetable for the first time in the village
- He started Cardamom or Elainchi farming to the village. People in that area still make a lot of income with this farming
- He managed proper water system in the village
- Improved paths of the village
- Improved bridges in the rivers
- Established a boarding school in the village for the first time for good education
- Started Tea garden but couldn't succeed becoz of Maoist Problem.
Now he has only one vision that is to join the road to that village.
He is now in his early 80s but he is as active as he used to be. He is a man of simplicity. He never thought himself as a Majhya but as a man who is always ready to serve other.
I believe, he got all this success because of the contributions my grandmother made as well.
