Shyam is sitting across the table from me. We are eating dal bhat and we’re talking about language. He says, “Listen, bahini.”
When someone calls me bahini, I listen. Bahini means little sister, and when someone calls me that, he’s my brother. So I listen.
“Listen, bahini. I want to encourage you. Don’t expect too much from yourself. You know – I am Nepali, and even I don’t know all words. You don’t have to know everything.”
While I’m trying to decide if I’m gonna finish that whole green chili, I think about what he just said – and then I get it.
You can’t force a learning process.
The true fan lives in Nepal.
Sahadev is so disappointed about the finals, that he hasn’t felt like eating since Sunday night. The only thing I could tell him was that Robben is only 26 (really? he looks way older!) so that he will last for a few more World Cups, at least
A card for a card
Inspired by Howard Webb: a card for a card. My room has a white wall, also known as the Evergrowing Wall of Fame. But this EWoF is not full yet.
Here’s the plan: send me a nice card, and you’ll receive one from Nepal in return. My wall will keep growing and you’ll have another nice stamp for your collection.
