I do not regret paying to see my children enjoying one of their favorite games. I introduced all three of my kids to soccer (football) in their very early age. When my two boys were about a year and a half, they were kicking size 3 ball in the living room. Sometimes, they got me scared when the ball flew and hit the television … Continue reading Highlights: Soccer U-8 Boys | Week 2
Many of you wouldn’t know what our last name, Maharjan, means. Maharjans fall under the Newa: caste system which defines a group of people who were/are farmers. Of course, Maharjans are not just limited to farming anymore. So, sometimes I wonder if our inclination to growing some of our food has to do with our roots. I know, farming is not something many people aspire to … Continue reading Do You Grow Your Own Food?
What’s wrong with these people in this picture? This might be the first thing you might ask yourselves. They are possibly watching a dying man on the highway. I’m not sure if watching is the right word choice here. It seemed like they were offering him company or comfort in his last breath. They could have done much more than being mere bystanders. No cars … Continue reading Humanity Shackled

This past weekend, my middle child Mr. S. came to sat on my lap while I was reading. He is close to turning six, yet he likes to sit on our lap sometimes. He is one of the most sensitive kids and also easy to make him content. I did not know he would come up with such a huge existential question. He had this … Continue reading Life. Death. Afterlife

On the other hand, I tend to go with savory and steaming from grill or searing and sizzling from pans which are mostly little juicy and fatty. The previous morning, I thought of baking some goodies for breakfast. And this is what I came up with — bread rolls … Continue reading Let’s Have Coffee
I don’t remember where I read it, but the blog post talked about eating an apple in the morning is as effective as drinking coffee to stay alert in the job or school. First, I did not give it much thought. I stuck with a cup of coffee as my morning ritual. Oftentimes, we make my own espresso double shot or cappuccino. One morning I … Continue reading Better than Caffeine
Photo ©Mary Slusser This picture was taken in 1974 AD. Every time I went back home, I wonder how much this place has changed for good or bad all these years. One part of me wanted to see the change that corresponds to the present modern world. On the other hand, I would like it to remain untouched by the modern civilization. A lot has … Continue reading Khokana in 1974 AD
By the time, the thunderstorm slowly disappeared, a concrete portrait seemed to be moving in the distance. I shuddered with a fright, but the tranquility in the dark turned me stiff and numb. With the penetration of the flimsy light, it evaded the layers of dark patches of cloud. The clouds scattered all in sudden. The moon was stunningly beautiful though a little shy. Thereafter, I … Continue reading An Oasis in Night
One thing I don’t understand: People feel pain for the loss or miscarriage of their cattle while do not feel the least of the pain when their daughters-in-law miscarriage a baby girl/fetus for thinking, “She can have a baby again.” I am not raising the issue whether a fetus is a baby or not here. Neither am I trying to contest that people should not … Continue reading Mourn the Loss for Cattle Over a Human Baby?
