Thank God! I wasn’t born during the Cold War – the proxy clash between US’s liberal democracy and the then Soviet Union’s socialist communism. Rather, I was born in Nepal during the summer of 1991.

On February 1, 2015, a post appeared on Facebook. The post was by a Newar student who had lost his mother tongue after he joined his English Medium School. About 15 years later the student gives some suggestions to his school on how to promote ethnic languages. He admits that if his school had only allocated time and place he would not have lost it. He would have assembled a group of students and teachers and conversed in his mother tongue at least for 30 minutes or he would have even conducted some cultural programs. By doing so, he would not have lost it as he had.

It is always nice to come across people who take the next step in their life after being in love for a while. They love the moment when they tie the knot and nothing could be more special to them. These are the lucky ones as they enjoy an amazing moment each day of them being together. But, perfection is an understatement. I have met a lot of people who complain that something is missing in their life. At times it is the incompatibility with people in their family. Or maybe it could be the thought of taking the other person for granted.
