Life is not how it is seen from outside, rather its like how Tara Devi sings ‘Jasto bhogyo ustai hunchha, dekhe jasto hunna jeevan….’ Million of Nepalese live abroad for better life and future but little did we know that things in abroad are not as rosy as we imagine while we were in Nepal. There are certain things we realize only after leaving the country. So here we present some of the greatest life facts that only Nepalese living abroad will understand.
#1 PAISA RUKHMA FALDAINA
Yes, money does not grow in trees in foreign land as expected in Nepal. It has to be earned.
#2 WORK IS WORSHIP
There is no sano kam, thulo kam. Work is work as long as it pays bills.
#3 NRNA IS USELESS
Initially we praise them and consider them as bigshots but gradually we realize Sang Sanstha, NRN, Other Associations are nothings but just meaningless. The people over there are just like all of us, ordinary people struggling with daily chores of lives and being involved there is a sheer waste of time and energy. There are other advantages though, such as networking, help preserving Nepali culture etc. Some people will not agree with it including the once involved in organisation.
#4 SEX IS NOT FOR FREE
Western world certainly is more open and liberal but that does not mean every Nepalese can get laid easily like shown on English movies.
#5 NEPAL IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL
The weather, hills, mountains, rivers, people, culture, natural resources, laidback life, everything seems to be so good once we left Nepal.
#6 WHY WE ARE SO UNDERDEVELOPED?
Every now and then this question strikes to us. After seeing the development and proper system we wonder why can’t we make our country better? We plan and think so many things to do, we ask ourselves its high time we build our nation. But some take actions other keep thinking.
#7 I HAVE A BETTER FUTURE IN NEPAL
Every now and then we realize it but most of the times we just could not take a bold step.
#8 NETA LE DESH BIGARE
We hated our politicians beofre and we start hating more once we leave the country.
#9 NEPALI DEGREES ARE USELSS
Except for getting admission in further studies. We admitted it after couple of months in abroad.
#10 LIFE IS TOUGH
It was not easy either at home but it gets tougher here. Perhaps it’s the greatest lesson we learn after leaving home
#11 ONE DAY I WILL RETURN HOME FOREVER
And life simply passes away, unfortunately the day never comes. Exceptions are always there.
