  MICRO YATRA Women's empowerment!  
  BY SOMESH VERMA  
 
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end,” so said Ernest Hemingway. The great man said it only to get us mortals under pressure. Right from the moment yours truly read it (sometime in his teens), he´s been hit by this ´journey´ bug. As if every step you take has to conform to the statement made by the man who wrote ´The Old Man and the Sea´ (It´s a different matter that during our college days, we used to find titles like ´The Old Man and the She´ more appealing).

Yet the line touched a chord, somewhere… And ever since the microbuses hit (yes, they literally hit!) the Kathmandu roads, yours truly started relating microyatras to ´journey´. The journeys have rarely been soul-searching, except for a few times when your fellow passengers were breathing down your
neck, yet they have been reflective of what stage of development our society is at.

  • I miss my grandpa
    RUSHALI GIRI
    Readers write

    May 12, 2013. This date is deeply imprinted in my heart. This was the day my dearest grandpa left us. I remember very well that before he breathed his last, he was trying to tell me something but was unable to. His eyes were talking to me but he couldn’t raise his hands to give me his blessings. With eyes full of tears, I wanted to hug him tight and never wanted to let go of him. But I failed.

    Eleven months before the ill-fated day, my grandfather fell ill. But none of us ever thought that he would leave us all so soon. We took him to the hospital and brought him home after a few days of treatment. He looked absolutely fine then. He regularly took medicines and I used to sit by him and talk about everything every chance I got. I used to remind him of his medicines, too.   [More]
