I don’t clearly know where I am headed (I feel out of this world, but I am not drugged), but I am sure I will find my way, my destiny, my destination. One thing is clear, though: I am leaving this city at least temporarily because it reminds me of so many things. You see, loads of memories are not a good thing when you are in an unenviable situation. On a pilgrimage?
Life after Dashain and Tihar is hard. First, I have to say goodbye to my family members and come home to an empty, often dusty, apartment. Though I live with my husband in a one-bedroom apartment with plenty of plants and a cat, our home feels a little strange after the chaos (aka my beloved extended family) I get used to having around during the festive season. Going to work is difficult after a month of playing cards, partying, and binging on Netflix.
Boarding on a public bus and getting off is a–day-to-day routine for some of us. However, some of us feel troubled while commuting on a public bus. Usually, these buses are packed and you have to face difficulties while travelling, like — you can hardly breathe inside as the bus is packed, need to rush while getting in and out of the bus, getting dehydrated due to the traffic jam and being unable to buy anything, taunts from the conductors and getting a headache due to the smell of sweat.
