Tomorrow I am going Kathmandu and is very excited to meet my dear son,, his cheerful face is hovering all around me,, I think I can’t sleep today,, Human beings are the most discontent creature in the world,, they want something and if that something is fulfilled they want another thing,,, we don’t enjoy that something and start to long for another thing,, in this process we never become happy,,,sometimes I hate that I am a human being,,,

I read ‘Sansar Lai Sandhe Panch Phanko’ by Pushkar Shah few months back but after the earthquake I was busy in relief distribution, and couldn’t think of anything else,,, after finishing the first phase of distribution I started reading ‘Aadha Jun’ by Jhalak Subedi. ‘Sansar Lai Sandhe Panch Phanko was a travel diary of a man who travelled the world on bicycle. It gives a view of world through a broke traveler and Aadha Jun is all about a young boy Sanjay who fights against Panchayat system to bring democracy.
Today is Nepal Bandha ,,,,, the draft constitution couldn’t represent voice of vulnerable people so people are against it. The aftershock is still there and a big one last night at Charikot. The oldest bridge of Charunge was washed away this month; the landslides are not stopping in the villages. The people are losing their attitude by the relief,,,they are becoming greedy, stubborn day by day,,, complaining,,shouting,,, angry,,,lazy,,,
