common difficulties of life in Nepal
Imagine growing up in Nepal with frequent "bandhas
" (worker strikes) and political riots. The party-political tussle has overshadowed crucial national concerns: not only the economy but also the continuity of education.
I was in Grade 12 when the Madhesi
political forum announced a vicious series of bandhas
. Not a single school gambled the safety of its students and institutional entities from day-1: those who dared, either had their students assaulted or their school-buses torched by the activists. Afflicted with this preposterous intrusion into my regular academics, I, accompanied with my high-school buddies, worked out a peaceable revolt. We approached the college/school officials with an appeal to side with us against the Madhesi
movement; however, only few roughnecks showed up the following morning to join our demonstration ahead of the Chief District Office. I even took it to the social media and the local newspapers to summon more dissatisfied individuals to fight for our fundamental 'right to education'. After few weeks of remonstration, backed by several humanitarian & academic enterprises, the spokesperson of Madhesi
forum finally approved the normal functioning of educational institutes.
That was the pandemonium where I was raised. Had I never teamed up with my friends on that audacious venture, I, and the rest of high-schoolers, couldn't have accomplished the curriculum in time. Thus, I endorse 'schools' as far-reaching platforms for canvassing one's political ideologies, but not for sustaining outrageous interferences. I've now realized the essence of a Hindu proverb-Tolerating injustice is a bigger crime than doing it.
