Why Always Women Being An Indeterminate Category?– Shrijana Shrestha 10, “A”
Is it a sin or a curse to take a birth as a girl? There is huge discrimination between boy and a girl. Because we are a ‘girl’, we need to sacrifice our every no value and respect of their dream. Why? There are so many questions to ask but there no right to answer.
Before marriage a girl spends their every days fulfilling the responsibility of being daughter and a sister. They don’t get time to spend for her. Parents say to do this not to do that and do so. Parents deny sending their daughter out to the house because they get afraid if any guy tries to hares their daughter sexually but when they send their son out of the house then they never think if their own son tries to hares any girls. They have faith on their son but not on their own daughter. Why a girl needs to face the consequences of once mistake.
Then after marriage, a girl spends their remaining life fulfilling the demand of her husband and in laws. She has to fulfill the responsibility of being a wife, mother, and daughter-in-law and spends her remaining life. Whenever we wish to fulfill our wishes then people says, ‘You are a girl and should be in your limitation. This doesn’t suites your image’. Why a girl needs to make her fake image? Is it a rule of the world that time and again a girl needs to change herself as per the condition? Can’t we remain the same the way we are?
I am a girl and I have lots of dreams to fulfill. But I promise that I will never left my dreams behind to make an image of being a girl. I know how I am and I am best in me myself. So, I’ll never change myself and never hide my potentiality in front of this world.

The Great Question– Chadani 10
‘Mata Parvati’ gave birth to me a chance to explore such beautiful place and father Shiva , who taught me to compete and win over evils, I shall never be able to pay the tdoing they did for me. They are my sumarru Parbat , the earth, the universe, my life, my god. ” This was all return in the book in the capter, value of Parents. I was staring the words when suddenly teacher asked me a question. ” Ashish by the statement can parents be termed as god?”
listening to that question, I got stunned. My mates were staring at me, actually had to answer yes but then I was taken to a story of a boy just five days old in his young mother’s lap. the two of them were in a dark room and tears were falling from the lady’s eyes who was waiting for her men to return back but wans not home from three days. She rolled her baby in cloth and took the child away to a long distance form her living area.
The new moon night was really dark to see the path however, they were near a police post where she layed her baby who was indeep sleep near a pole with a letter. She stayed in a distance between the child but she could see the vision clearly . After some hours the child cried but none came to observe. the mother of the child, made her heat strong and waited more, but no one was seen. The cry came to be louder and at last she couldn’t control herself and was about to go for the boy when two cops came and picked the baby up. In the letter, was writtend- ‘I am a young girl and my husband definitely have left me. I can’t take this baby with me in front of the society without a men. Hope, my baby will be in good hands where he can live a better life.’ After the policeman read the letter, they went back to their booth whereas, the mother went in search for her future in an unknown path. Every child’s birth is not accepted. Everyone doesn’t have their birth in palace. Everybody can’t have a better managed life. Why did lord Ganesh termed parents as god. May be its because he had really great childhood by his parents but what about the parents who don’t accept their own children which is actually the result of their own act which leads on to undecided future of themselves and the children ? What about the father who didn’t bought a pair of clothes to his son and a mother who couldn’t raise her child by her own hands?
And what about the parents of Ashish, Kamala, Dev, Shruti very long list of children and their parents who couldn’t tie themselves in therope of family life. Can they be said as god? The up given story was about Ashish…………?…………!
Then I was back again to my class where my teacher was shouting at me − ” Why arenot you answering as if you don’t understand ? My best friend and my room mate, Dev stood up and replied in a grief voice- ‘ Mam we are from Bal Mandir!!!!!
Tour– Jennifer Dewan 10,”A”
It seems like as if it was yesterday that all our friends were excited for the tour. The planning set up by our friends was organized well. We were really excited until the day arrived for the tour but a day before the tour, a question that arose in my mind was how we were going to complete our destination in short time span. Keeping this question aside, we set off for our trip. We reached school at 6 a.m. and left at around 6:30. We were seen off by John sir and Warden sir. The teachers accompanying for the trip were Khanal Sir, Thakur Sir, Dahal Sir and Ms. Shova.
We were all silent in the bus. Some of us were busy listening to music on our cell phones and some were busy clicking photos. The only energetic people I could see were Khanal Sir and Auiina. They were engrossed playing antakshari. They even cracked jokes about each other and everybody started laughing. That was like an ice breaker for us. Then we reached Malekhu for breakfast and guess what, Khanal Sir was ready with a camera in his hand to click our photographs while we ate. We were feeling really shy but after sometime we got used to it. While we were on our way, one of our friends fell down from her seat when the bus took a sharp turn. The whole day passed silently and finally we reached Dhampus. We went for a three hours hike after reaching there. The place where we were going was a sunrise and sunset point. It was a tiring walk but it was worth it because the sunset view was just breath taking. It took away all the tiredness. That day we stayed there so that we would be able to see the sunrise the next morning. However, we were not fortunate enough as it rained all night and the weather did not permit us the majestic view. We had to walk back to the place where our bus stood.
When we reached our bus we took some rest and then drove to Pokhara, to our hotel. It was a good hotel and the view of the mountains from the balcony left us awestruck. The hotel rooms had a television and a phone too. We were divided into groups of four members. Tenzi, Puja, Bibhuti and myself were sharing the same room. We were given some time to freshen up and get ready to visit other enticing places. After lunch we went to Mountaineering Museum. There we saw pictures of some famous peaks, statues of people from different cultures, different types of rocks and even some dead animals’ skin. The next destination we headed towards was the hydroproject. There was a big water falls which later took its course as a river. Unfortunately, one of my friends was about to get drowned but Dahal Sir saved him. At the same time other friends were busy splashing water at each other. Then we went inside to see how electricity was generated out of water. Then we came back to our hotel rooms. In the evening we were supposed to go for a boat ride to Phewa taal but the rain got us doomed. We also had to visit Mahendra Cave, Davis Falls, Gupteshwor Temple and Seti river. Due to the rainfall we had to stay back in our rooms. As there was T.V. there we sought of a way to kill time. After dinner, we returned back to our room. Two of our friends were fast asleep except Bibhuti and me. We were busy watching horror movies till 12:30. Our teachers had locked us upp from the ouside.
The next morning we were set to out to Bhairawa. On our way we had lunch in Palpa and by 4o’clock in the evening we reached our hotel in Bhairawa. After some rest we went for a walk and then returned back. We were taken to the terrace where we sang songs and danced and after dinner we were taken back to our rooms. The next day we set out for Lumbini. It was one and a half hours drive. Lumbini is a beautiful place. It tells about the life history of Gautama Buddha, the Ashokan Pillar and many other things. Then we set off towards Chitwan. On our way we visited the Chaudhary Group factory. The people there showed us how the products were manufactured. Then by five in the evening we reached Chitwan.
We were haapy to see our rooms, they were better than Pokhara’s. That day we did not go anywhere; we just had dinner and went to our rooms. The next day, early morning, we were taken to Chitwan forest. We sat on elephant backs; we were four people on each elephant. After we went back to the hotel rooms, we were given bicycles to ride. Those who opted not to ride the bicycle used the tangas. We went to the river side. We also shopped there and after reaching our things back in the rooms, we went for an elephant bath. Only three amongst us lucky to get an elephant shower. The elephant would fill its trunk with water and then shower us with it. It was so much fun. We also sat on it but we then fell into the water and got completely drenched. We changed into fresh, dry clothes and set out for boat ride to see crocodiles. We could also see tiger foot prints which were quite scary. We returned to the hotel room in the evening. There we celebrated Srijana’s birthday. After dinner we got to watch Tharu dance performed by some artists in the hotel. Even we joined their dance and we danced to glory. That night we had a small snack party in our room.
He next day we were all set to return to Kathmandu. We did not feel like coming back and wanted to stay for one more day. On our way to Kathmandu, we went to Manakamana Mandir where we got to spend three hours. And then we returned home.
I had never expected that outside the busy streets of Kathmandu, beautiful places as Pokahara and Chitwan could exist. This tour has been one which will always remain engraved in my heart and whose memories I shall always cherish.
Gaijatra– Sunil Karki 10,”A”
Gaijatra is one of the festivals of Nepal. Gaijatra is made up of two words. They are: – Gai which means cows and Jatra festival or feast. Thus, it is the festival of cows who are worshipped. It is celebrated in the month of Bhadra (August-September) one after Janai Purnima. Many people of the Newar community celebrate it by dressing up themselves like cows. The festival commemorates the death of people during the year. During the festival cows are marched in the streets and generally celebrated in the month of Bhadra.Gaijatra has its roots in the ancient ages when people feared and worshipped Yamraj, the god of death. However, the festival was seen in the medieval period of Nepal during the reign of the Malla kings. Hence, the present form of Gaijatra is a happy blending of antiquity and the medieval era. According to the historical evidence, when late k ing Pratap Malla lost his beloved son, his wife remained grief stricken due to which he also was really depressed. The queen was sad but the king wanted to see a smile on the face of queen. Though the king tried to convince her wife saying that death is natural process and everyone has to surpass through it losing their families and relatives or intimate ones. The king then announced the Kathmanduties to celebrate a jatra in the memory of the deceased and he decided to give a prize to one that could make the queen laugh and make her happy. Due to this, various types of jokes and songs were added and the queen laughed. From that time, various types of jokes and songs emerged and became popular on the occasion of Gaijatra, though they are ironical in nature to satirize pungently to the modern social and political world. This festival is celebrated for eight days. The fi rst day is Gaijatra itself, the second is Ropai jatra and fi nally the eighth day is “Krishna Asthami”. Gaijatra is celebrated in different ways. In Kathmandu, the relatives of the deceased disguise themselves as cows or colorful dresses and dance on the streets. Many people offer drinks and food on the streets. In Patan, people disguise in different looks and gather in a particular area and travel around the city. While in Bhaktapur, Gaijatra is celebrated in more lively way. Like the Kthamanduties and Patanians, they dress up in different looks and attires but special type of stick dance called “Laathi Dance” is also shown here this day.Gaijatra has a special value in our society.Celebrating Gaijatra is not just a fun and fair but has religious and cultural value too. It highlights and makes lively cultural and religious tradition in Nepalese society. Gaijatra also brings people together and binds them in a unity forgetting all those past sorrows and prejudices. It is also a healthy festival which enables the people to accept the reality of death and to prepare oneself for life after death. This helps human beings to possess good behaviour and attitude in the society because everyone is mortal. Thus, they could be remembered for their good deeds even after death.
