My Love, My Pride


,
तिमीलाई जब देखे, 
बेस्सरी चिचाय, उफ्रे ,
खै भन्नै सक्दिन भो के के । 
बर्सौ देखिको मेरो जपना,
मेरो प्रेम,
मेरो संसार,
मेरो साहरा । 
तिमीलाई भेट्न यि आतुर पाइलाहरु,
थर् थराउदै, फाल् हाल्दै,
धारे, ढुङे जँगले बाटोमा।
काउकुती लगिरह्यो,
के के सम्झिरहे,
मौन कुदिरहे,
रोकेनन बाघ भालुले पनि ।
चक्मन्न अध्यारी रातमा,
छ्याप्ल्यङ छुप्लुङ गर्दै,
त्रिलोक र खत्याड सँग भाग्दै,
दगुरिरहे,
तिम्रो प्रेममा पागल बनेर ।
सास फुलेर आयो,
शरीर तातियो,
जती जती तिमी नजीकियेउ ।
सशंकित भय,
म को हो ? के हुँदैछ म मा ?
बिड्म्बना,
जब म तिमी नजिकै आए,
तिमी देखिएनौ,
मात्रै स्पर्स गरे,
चिसो तर मि $ ठो,
सौम्य तर माया माया,
फलाइग किस .
न्यानो अँगालो,
अाइ लव यु,
अाइ रिअली लव यु,
मिस यु सो मच् ।
म अनियन्त्रित भय्,
आँखा रसाएे अनायस्मै .
म थुचुक्क बसे,
आलु, सिमी र भात् तिमी सँगै खाए,
तिम्रो सामिप्यले होला पुरै खाए ।
कोल्टै नफेरी,
तिम्रै अन्गालोमा रात बिताए,
गफिये, माया गरे, सारा  बिर्सिएे .
रात नसकियोस लाग्दै गर्दा,
एक हुल ठिटाहरुले बिथोले,
झोकिदै उठे,
तैपनी मिठो नै लाग्यो ।
हूल्काहुल मान्छेहरुका अघी,
तिमी शभ्य भैदियेउ तर माया गरिरहेउ ।
सरर बाफ् बनेर,
मुवाइ खाएउ हराएउ आकाशमा,
जगतै लाटियो मेरा के कुरा।
रिस ले भुतुकेर,
माझो हाल्दै,
सुर्य, घाम बनेर निस्किएे,
शायद छायानाथ सँग फुस भएछन क्यार । 
चिआउँदै थिए तर पतै पाईन,
जब उनी आए,
तिमी त झन रोमन्चित पो बनिदिएउ,
आकाश र धर्ती जोडी दिएउ,
जात क्षेत्र बर्ग सबै मेटाइदिएउ ।
टल्पलएउ, सल्बलएउ ।
तिम्रो क्यान्भासमा,
मैले तिमी पाए,
कबिता बाचन् गरे,
नाटक मन्चन गरे,
डिजे डिस्को सबै गरे ।
तिमीलाई स्पर्स गर्दै,
लाहुँडा महादेव गए,
आरुबोट र महेन्द्र चौतरा ।
आह !
कती रमाइलो कस्तो खुशी,
संगलेर राख्न पाये,
सधैं सधैं हुन सके ।
तिमीभित्र गडेर घन्टौ बसे,
निती कुल्चेर बसे, केबल तिम्रो स्पर्सका लागि ।
तिम्रो श्वास मैले फेरे, तिमीसगै सुतिरहे,
तिमी रुप फेरी रहेउ,
लुकी लुकी चुमिरहेउ,
मैले पनि,
झुकायर आँखा जिम्कैदिये,
तिमीभित्र हरायेर् सुरुपाइ दिये ।
तिमीलाई छोड्ने नकल्पदै, 
थिच्यो, खै केले थिच्यो ।
धकेल्यो, पेल्यो, समयले लतार्यो ।
मेरो भबिस्य,
मेरो प्रेम,
मेरो गौरब .
भकानो छुटौदै,
पुन म हराय ।
तर
प्रतिग्या बिर्सेंको छैन,
फेरी फेरी,
बर्सौ लगएर पनि,
म तिमीलाई भेट्न आउनेछु,
तिम्रो हरेक स्पर्स्को मुल्य तिर्न ।
तिमी एसरी नै हसिरहे,
तिमी एसरी बाचिरहे,
तिमी रहेनौ मात्र महेन्द्र कि अप्सरा ,
तिमी होइनौ मेरै मात्र अप्सरा,
तिमी सबै सबैकी अपसरा,
प्यारी प्यारी अपसरा रारा

Welcome Speech by Ms. Radha Paudel, Social Impact Advisor `Volunteer', CGNSB

Respected Chair ,  
Chief guests;   Barry Palmer, Immediate Past International President, Lions Club International
Binod Chaudhary Chairman of Chaudhary Group and Forbs Billionaire,
Distinguish guests and all
Binod Chaudhary, Chairman Chaudhary Group, Forbes Billionaire 
Barry Palmer, Lion Club International, President
Greetings  and heartly welcome to Jumla.

It is my incredible privilege to welcome both chief guests and all others on the premises of historically popular, naturally beauty, culturally wealthy and Peace Peaceful Jumla.

Today,  it really takes my breath to be in the distinguished presence of Mr. Binod Chaudhary and his son Nirvana Chaudhary along with Lion Barry Palmer, Lion Sanjay Khetan and Lion Shyam Shakya. This moment reminds me on the moment one and a half year back when Binod and me were meeting as an Authors and discussing about the scope, challenges and opportunities of Social Business in Karnali.  I would like to take comparison to the holy epic Ramayan,  Binod and me are Krishna and Sudhama respectively where Biond is a billionaire and I am a squatter  though we are together, our mission is common and our friendship and commitment will remain forever as Krishna and Sudhama. 
It is not easy to start from the scratch though we have already made all foundations works and ready to kick of off four pilot projects in Jumla. More importantly, we are not alone in this historical journey. On behalf of people of Jumla, I would  extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to Lions  Clubs International and Chaudhary Group for transforming challenges in to opportunities, designing dreams with way forward.
In order to cultivate the concept of Social Business and leverage resources, Nepal is the first country for lion  club international where as Jumla is  the first place for CG Nepal Social Business thus this visit has historically significance to all of us in many ways
Today, many development actors are working over here though they are frustrated with geographical hardship, poor infrastructure and low socio-economic indicators.
Here, I like to reiterate Nobel Laureates, Prof. Mohamud Yunus, and appeal to all of us,
let’s convert challenges in to opportunities,
let’s increase skills instead of forced labour migration
Let’s fight hunger by promoting the local products and eco- tourism.
In conclusion, it’s just beginning, we, Jumla people are ready for commitment and looking forward to hear more from our chief guests  for spreading peace message through empowerment of underprivileged people from Jumla.

 Again, on behalf of Narkali Lion club Jumla, CGNSB, Action Works Nepal and myself, like to do warm welcome and wishing successful stay in Jumla.

एकै मुठी सास बिर्सें ।

कहिले तारिक्मा कहिले गतेमा, अौलाहरु भाच्दै भाच्दै बिते ।
मिठा मिठा सपनाहरु, ताराहरु गन्दै ताजै राखे ।
सम्झौता पनि थिए कताकती, खोले, सपारे, चाङ् पारे ।
ढोकेहरु तन्नै थिए, स्वागत मस्तै नै गरे।
नयाँ जोस नयाँ नेपाल,सपना पाली पाली बसे ।
दर्शन दुनियाँको राम्रो, काम  ज्याद्रै चाम्रो, तेन्द्रो ।
पिरै पिर्ले सुके, एकै मुठी सास बिर्सें ।      
Khalanga, Jumla

तिम्रो सम्झनामा, फेरी पनि भाले बास्यो .

तिम्रो सम्झनामा,
फेरी पनि भाले बास्यो .
कुटुनी बुडि भागीछन धेरै, कतै टाढा ।
सदै झै तिमी एक पेग र् सितन्संगै,
मस्तै मस्तै ।
नसोच्नु गुनासोलाई पोखे भनी,
पाप बोकु म कती कसरी,
हत्केलाले घाम छेकिन्छ कतिन्जेल र ?
भाग्य धिकरे, भगवान गुहारे,
गुजारे थुप्रै बसन्तहरु,
जपे फर्कनन च्ड्कने हुन्डरिहरु ।
पुर्पुरो कस्को बलियो,
ज्योतिस के जानुन,
जच्नु छ तिमी र मैलेनै,
तिम्रो सम्झनामा,
फेरी पनि कुखुराको भाले बास्यो ।

गहिराइ अनुभुत हुँदैछ,

गहिराइ अनुभुत हुँदैछ,
फराकिलो पनि ।
झुन्डिने छोड्नेको ताती,
अमरखहरुको सदै खडेरी ।  
तिन्लाई नलागेको लाज,
कुरी कुरी आँफैले नियती ।
चुडिएको लगाम,
फर्कन्न घोडा पनि ।
मातिएको राजघोडा,
आस्था टुटेको छनी ।

Call for Commemorate Local Women Leaders for Sustained Peace in Nepal: September 21, 2014

I become judgmental towards village leaders, due to extreme cold and snowing, women wouldn't come or would come late while walking over snowing road for Lashi Dillichaur, Jumla in December 2013. Due to heavy snow, took complete 7 hours walk from Khalanga Jumla, felled down several times along with donkey and felt like CARAVAN. It was about 1 o’clock, the very cold, slightly dark floor was occupied by bunch of women and few men. I felt guilt badly on my thought and promised with myself not to repeat again.  I was so confused on how could I make most effective discussion in such group; most were uneducated, speaking pure Jumli Khas language and covered their head by big scarf called gumcho in local language. However, I always enjoyed with such group because easy to brain wash for transformation without delearning and learning also sustained than educated and urban people.
I was just in introductory session; a mobile rang with high volume from the side of women’s row. One woman with big smile stood up and went outside to speak. I was following her conversation to set the ground rules about switched off. I regret again because she talked about the governance of a cooperative and she is serving as president so she insisted for calling meeting. If I were asked to everyone to switch off or kept on mute, how they would access with information? They neither can check text message nor check the incoming calls.
In order to enter in to the issues regarding to women’s right and empowerment, I simply asked about to list down the history of four women in group. It was voluntarily asked four women and asked group to work on her life history. Women were came extra exceptionally with issues and concerns regards to right of rural, poor, marginalized woman.  My soul was crying to hear from them, how strong they are, how much struggle they have gone through, how much difficult their environment and how lucky I was, got opportunity to learn and inspired so much.   
Mrs LauriMaya Dhami
One group started to present of Mrs Laurimaya Dhami, the same woman who was talked earlier over phone. She was born in Patrashi village in Jumla where is about 10 hours walk from headquarter. She had got marriage at 11 years old as arrange marriage with the man from next village. She decided to go to file the case when her husband brought next woman at home. She was so dedicated on her love and dedication by considering her luck. Her family and relatives were standing on her opposition and put her as stigma. Finally, she got divorce thought the process was so tough for her due to uneducated, rural and poor woman. It was 45 years back where there gender responsive policies were not in conception in history of Nepal’s women’s right movement. Though she got divorce and started to live at maternal house. She did second marriage on her own decision with bit old man at Loom, Dillichaur, Jumla. In her own saying, she did compromise with age because she was suffering from various forms of abuse and stigma due to divorce and single. There was mutual love and respect regardless second marriage, divorce and all. She got six children, all are educated and independently living at six different houses. Unfortunately, her second husband died 14 years back due to sickness, which was not cured by Jumla hospital. Though the Jumla has diverse practice regards to widow, she started to use all colors and jewelries after a year by her own decision. She just ignored what other said and though about her. She stated, bahini who was crying with me while I was crying, who slept with me when I slept with empty stomach. I had just shake from her saying because she wasn’t less as educated woman activist in Kathmandu. Now she is not only a gender facilitator in her community, she is holding decision making positions of more than half dozens of committees, lobbying with political leaders and government authorities at local and district levels. She resolved many disputes in the community related with gender based violence, land, sharing of family property. Her group defined her as role model, as catalyst, as champion, as peace leaders, as connector, as mediator, as mother, as activist etc. She also a final decision maker on her all economic activities including her land.
In 2006, the mother’s day approaching and I had spoken with my mom, Ms. Ganga Maya Paudel, over phone, a 2 weeks before of mother’s day. I didn’t go home unless Dashain and emergency situation. My mom didn’t expect me on mother’s day but she requested, I was completely happy with you all from your care, I didn’t need anything during mother’s day. If you would manage money, please think not to do KRIYA after death of mine, you can donate to school for educating poor, dalit girls. She further said, who is come and say that I was in heaven and I was in hell, so no need to spend the money for all. Since I knew her, kept on saying that `Crying is NOT Final Solution’ of any life. Thus, education is very important to everyone especially for woman, she should live independently in each walks of her life. She gave two example to everyone while chatting in field, forest and everywhere; i) I carried a sags of rice that I grown to rice mills but I can’t say how much kilo was it, it was so embarrassing while asking with mill owner, ii) I always scared to throw even piece of paper by thinking that was related with valued documents. She was not happy with saying only, she contributed many children of her friends and relatives by giving money or directly giving notebooks and other reading materials. She was sick since I knew though awake up early morning with the signal of eastern star or  cock’s bark. She prepared roasted corn and tea for us so we had to study till sun raise and we had to read loudly so she could follow us while she was busy in household chores. More importantly, I was quite young, she shared with me about gender and caste discrimination. Why I was sat in low level during the feast of higher caste neighbor. She never shouted me when I ate at dalit’s house. Likewise, she spoke against gender based violence in the community and encouraged me to serve others who are suffering from poverty, gender and caste. As a result of her education, I had put on fire (dagbatti) on pyre (CHITTA). She was always casted her vote as her choice.
Late Mrs GangaMaya Paudel
The above mentioned examples of Mrs Laurimaya and Gangamaya are only the representative examples of local women leaders. Without having formal education, training, more specifically without having knowledge on human rights, they are breaking the silence in the communities; they spoke against set social values and norms that are discriminating women in many ways.  Of course, they have gone with series of difficulties, challenges and obstacles while they stand against society. Indeed, they are REAL peace leaders at the local level who contributed in making strong foundation national  peace building. Today’s many such women are working with political leaders, village secretaries, government authorities and NGOs to claim their rights specially in resource generation and sharing. They also significantly contributed in rural agro-economy and development. They are engaged in health, education, natural resource management, infrastructure, breaking traditional harmful practices, saving and credits, cooperatives etc. Very sadly, many local women leaders were played multiple roles during a decade long insurgency in Nepal. In Jumla, Mrs Laurimaya was struggling to support directly by sending her children in to combatants, joining their mass activities and so on where as in Chitwan, Mrs Ganga Maya, was provided shelter for combatants, foods, telephonic service etc.  Without knowing any theoretical perspectives, they are practicing UNSCR (United Nations Security Council Resolutions) 1325, 1820, CEDAW, and Nepal’s Interim constitution 2007.
These all activities they carried for their satisfaction because they considered these situations are urgent to address and mitigate not for well paid, promotion, aboard going, awards etc. They are worried about their children and grand children like Mrs Laurimaya and Gangamaya. Unfortunately, they are disappearing slowly because the life expectancy of most of them is shorter due to poor socio-economic background. They are unable to write by themselves except oral history. In this situation, their activism, their successes and inspiring stories are missing sadly. In Kathamndu, September 21, the Ministry of Peace and Construction, the NGOs, UNs are commemorating International Peace Day every year. They don’t know or ignore to know what is happening in the ground by whom and how. There are multiple confounding factors of ignorance by Kathamndu’s activism due to don’t have English language, poverty, poor get up, non political, living in rural areas associated by dirty/ugly, excessive ignorance etc. And they also forgetting to recognize them and document their powerful stories to move country. 

If the Government, UN agencies, and NGOs really are seeking tangible results in peace building and reconciliation process in Nepal, the local leaders should get attention in recognition, their capacity building with linking international and national human rights laws/policies and comprehensive enabling environment to blow otherwise there are ample of evidences of relapse conflict in Nepal in a way and the other. It is still not too late to reconsider the strategies and actions to significantly engage with Local Women Peace Leaders and recognized them for sustained peace and prosperous Nepal. My big salute is to Mrs Laurimaya, Gangamaya and all who sacrifice their life for cause at grassroot’s movement.
