Life For Us

August 2, 2017

“When I was small, I had a difficult life. My husband brought me here to Nepal and the difficult life continues. I have a daughter and a son and they are growing up. They go to school and are exposed to new things. They come home and complain about the state of our home and talk among each other about what they lack. I know they have bigger dreams. I never had any dreams in my life. I was just like a cow, just nodded my head every time I was told something, never said no, never argued. Woke up, worked all day, ate if I was given food and the slept in the corner. My husband is also a simple farmer, he does not know how to think left and right. He goes early in the morning, spends all day in the fields and comes home tired. I tell him about the children and how they are growing up and also about their daily demands but he just listen quietly, eats his food and goes to bed. This is life for us. I hope destiny permits my children a better life. Now, I have to go take food to the fields to my husband. He must be wondering where I stalled.” (Raj Kumari Devi Yadav, Birpur, Saptari)

Ranika-Pariyaar1To sustain Stories of Nepal and to continue my journey to share stories, I have set up this donation page. I hope you will consider donating. The donations raised here will be used mostly for my travel. It will help me reach more places and share more stories of us Nepalis. Having covered over 35 districts, I have plans to cover stories from many other places and districts of Nepal, thus bringing back stories for all of us. Thank you.

Charitable donations are essential to the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival. Without generous, sustained support, the festival would be unable to help talented young artists from Hawai’i attend the festival each July in Waimea. Please help us give the gift of a musical career to a young artist. (Note: The Hawaii Performing Arts Festival is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization; donations are tax exempt.)
