Souls of My City: My real hero
“When I was a little kid, I used to ask my mother: everybody has a dad…is there my dad too? My father went to India when I was just a year old. We never saw him since then. My mother was the one and only person that we knew as our parent.
She raised us three children to be who we are today. She was an independent mother and a breadwinner for the entire family. She used to sell seasonal vegetables and fruits, that’s where I learnt about business.
She is my true protagonist, the true hero of my life”, said Ramesh Dahal, 34, a fruit seller from Gorkha who currently resides in Banasthali. He owns a stall in exhibition road, Kathmandu. “Sometimes I think my mother had taken on a lot of hardships for us and I have done nothing in comparison to what my mother did. I live with my wife and two sons in a rented room and my mother lives with my elder brother in a house with good facilities. She lightens up our house with happiness whenever she visits us," said Ramesh Dahal.
