My mind often wanders back to that one ex-boyfriend that had the gall to hit me. It’s been more than eight years now but I sometimes still find myself thinking about how I let it happen in the first place.

Do you remember how you used to (and still sometimes do) rid your home of dry wastes such as plastics, bottles, old books, and stray metals pieces? There would be someone (on a bicycle, most of the times) collecting all that to take to a scrap dealer who would then recycle and reuse it. But now, as these jobs get rarer by the day, we usually have these things lying somewhere at a corner of our homes ready to be dumped whenever possible. Many even toss these wastes at various places around the city where waste has accumulated due to random dumping.

KATHMANDU, April 2: “I was going through mild-depression that lasted about a year. If I have to describe in words, I would say I always felt sad, I could feel the void and that I was directionless.

I knew the depression was eating me alive. So, rather than sitting idle, I started doing things I loved that helped me overcome my depression. And I realized having a sound mind makes a lot difference.”
