DHADING, May 29: Nutrition, comfort, sanitation and so on are not such familiar terms for Fulmaya Chepang of Brushbang hill of Rorang Rural Municipality. She always ate what was available around. There was no choice. Having to get a full meal would be considered a matter of luck. “There was never enough food to eat, even when I was a nursing mother. It has been a life full of miseries,” she laments.
