Souls of my city: An independent mother
Mingma Dolma Sherpa, 41, fell in love with a man seven years ago. She eventually married him and had a daughter. Originally from Solukhumbhu, Sherpa now works at an antique shop at Bouddha, Kathmandu.
She shared, “I used to run an eatery and he used to be my customer. We fell in love and got married. He was from Tibet.” However, their love story does not have a ‘happily ever after’ ending as he left her three years ago. She added, “He went back three years ago and never returned. We talked over the phone for some time but later he stopped calling me. I am now living with my beautiful daughter. She has not seen her father yet, nevertheless I am going to tell her everything when she reaches the right age. I never blame my husband for not coming back. Maybe he did not get access at the boarder or something might have happened in between that I do not know.”
