I am so glad to have met this doctor who has made my life so much easier. Along with many of you conscientious parents, I too was getting concerned about all the toxic chemicals and pollutants our kids are exposed to every day through food, body products, detergents, and what not. A friend shared a video that opened my eyes to the world of hormone … Continue reading Have you tried this Dr.?
“Oh, hey, you are my suite-mate!” was the first sentence to the first friend I met at Timmer dorm in Kuyper College premises. 11 years have passed and we have been there for each other at different stages of our lives. There are some friends with whom many days, several months or years will have passed between conversations, but at every encounter, it will have … Continue reading I Bet You Don’t Have a Friend Like Mine!
Blogging is such a great way to keep your memories fresh. So, before I go too long, I just wanted to take this time and write about my visit to Oklahoma with my mom and daughter- a fun all-girl trip back in August! The last time I was there was in 2009. When I mention Oklahoma not many people are impressed. Rather, many wonder why I … Continue reading Why OK?
I wish I never had to continue writing on this topic after blogging two series (Part I/Part II) in the past. I stumbled upon the same people, same airport, and same airline but the only differences were that I stayed in the different hotel, had different food and a new experience that changed my perception toward Nepalese migrant workers. You find them where not but every … Continue reading Nepalese Around the Globe: Doha, Qatar – Part III
I had an interesting talk with a gentleman who I have known for a long time in my last visit to Nepal. During our conversation on a wide variety of topics, he brought up the topic of the educational system in Nepal. Another fellow also jumped in the middle of the conversation and delivered his verdict against a particular school that is known for sending … Continue reading Overloading Homework Breaking Kids Back
Answering your child’s peculiar questions can be pretty daunting task sometimes. In the midst of our conversation the other day, I told my sons that once they go visit their grandparents in Nepal, they have to learn to live without power (electricity). They won’t see light most part of the day, as blackouts are quite frequent and have become a part of life. I showed my … Continue reading Poor Grandparents Don’t Have Driveway!
As of today, I have changed thousands of diapers (nappies in Europe). This was unimaginable act for me until I became father for the first time. Changing diaper, especially, has taught me to reflect on how God has loved me thus far. At present, I need to change diapers only on my daughter, since she is just 7 months old. My two boys are well potty trained. … Continue reading Changing Diapers Has Taught Me About This Love
Just before going to bed, I had a pep talk with my oldest son about trying a new church. His little brother was sitting with me on my left in the recliner while he was on the right side. Often it’s hard to get a time to talk with him due to the nature of his brother, a hot headed and energetic guys who is … Continue reading 1st Generation American Problems
I have been living in the United States for past six years and been back to Nepal only one time all these years. Apparently, it is normal that people ask questions like, “When are you coming back?,” or “How long are you still gonna be there?”. Some friends even go little further and ask “You must have made a lot of money?,” What? And one follow-up question from friends here, “Have their grandparents (pointing to my kids) met them?” or “Have you been back to Nepal after you came here?” It is nothing unusual to get asked these sorts of questions when you are away from the family. But what bothers me the most is that I also do not know how long I will stay here. Continue reading “When Are You Coming Back?”
