Souls of my city: What is life?
Hari Kumar Sunuwar was born and raised in Ramechhap. Sunuwar, who lost his mother at the age of 14, believes that the place of birth is another thing that makes you feel motherly love. Sixty Seven-year-old Sunuwar said he used to ponder a lot about some aspects of life such as what is love that unites people and what is life all about.
“Now I have a realization that most of the people like me do spend years thinking about general questions such as who am I and what is the purpose of life?” said Sunuwar from Ramechhap. He passed his grade 10 (SLC-School Leaving Certificate) from Dharan. A farmer back in Ramechhap, he recently came to Kathmandu for health check-up. Sunuwar, who prefers to call himself a society-centric person, wants to be involved in social activities and worries about his home district.
Several areas in Ramechhap have been declared municipalities but he finds that meaningless as people in these areas are deprived of quality education, health services, roads and other basic facilities. “There should be good schools, hospitals and roads instead of just changing signboards and converting village offices into municipalities,” he said.
