I grew up hearing many people say Nepal is a yam trapped between two boulders. I never quite understood the significance of living in a landlocked country with two economic powerhouses of the world at its borders.Being born and raised in a small village, Jhapa Bazaar, bordering India, I have beautiful memories of going across the border countless times to attend fairs or simply to shop for objects that were otherwise hard to come by.
