Happy to be here

Twenty-two-year-old Akhilesh Kumar works at a grocery shop in Sundhara, Kathmandu.

Originally from Matihari of Bihar in India, he is currently living in Bhotebahal, Kathmandu. He came to Nepal some six months ago in search of work.

Although he doesn’t understand Nepali and can neither speak the language, he got the job at the grocery store because he used to own a shop in India. He earns Rs 5,600 per month, while his accommodation is looked after by his employer.

“I am happy to work in Kathmandu as the earning here is satisfactory. I have a family of six living in India and I miss them all very much. The only sad part of living here is that I get to see my family merely twice a year,” he said.
