Commitment task

Before it was just an egg for me. It was something i would love to eat by making omelet  Also, i loved

it when i tried the 1st Israeli dish- Saksuka made by my international fellow in one of the breakfasts. But now it is not just an egg for me.
While being in one of the trainings by Nyayik Sansar, our trainer Atmaram Neupane gave us a task. Each of Nepalese fellows were given an egg. We should care for the egg regarding as a baby, till we went back home for dasain. The task was for 9 0r 10 days.
First of all, all of us felt like why should we care for an egg like baby! Egg is something to eat not to be taken care of!
Later on he explained us, it as a commitment task. He wanted to see how committed we are and what efforts we could do to protect the egg and complete our task.
We had to carry the egg where ever we went- was it kitchen, swayambhu, sessions, everywhere.
All of us did the task with much effort, we even named our eggs, mine was named SUMAN Jr. (as u see in the pic). All of us were so committed that we even made protective covers to our so called baby :P.

We took it to all the places where we went and protected it. we finished our task and went home.Al were happy.

Previously, i had thought of eating the egg once i reach home but later on i couldnt do it. i was so attached to it that i abandoned my thoughts of eating the egg. Now the egg is hanging in my room with its name written on it ‘SUman Jr.’. Forever , i will try to protect it like my baby.
The credit goes to our trainer . Previously  it was just an egg but later on after the task it was something close to my heart which i would always like to treasure. i felt an ownership for it. Also i came to realize how something strange, completely nothing to me can be so near to me.

The same goes when i work in Bethan. Bethan now is like a stranger for me but later on when i’ll start my work there, it won’t be any stranger. it would be like my place, it’s people as my people and it’s problems as my own problems which i have to deal with and solve !

Once again, the so called egg – Now, It’s not just an egg!!!

7th October, 2013,Monday- A day which i’ll never forget. Suman Nepali reporting from Kalimati.

It’s been five years when Kalimati Community Day Care center started it’s work. This is a unique child day care center which takes care of children of migrant workers in kalimati area. It opens at 9AM and closes at 5PM where 23 children are taken care by the staff of the day care center.

In the beginning, the day care center had experienced trouble with irregularities where children used to come once or twice in a week. Also, there were no parents’ meeting done. But now the parents are active. They regularly bring their children in

Currently there are 23 children and once in a month, parent’s meeting is held. The charge for looking after the children in day care center is also very nominal ,i.e, Rs.500/-. And if the condition is very poor then the center gives scholarship after their inspection in the house for migrant worker. Just by using the local available resources and words of mouth, the day care center is now popular in kalimati area. Even parents from other communities wanted to keep their children in it but it only looks after the children of migrant workers.

kalimati Community Day Care center also has three WOMEN groups established which is actively running . Before, they didn’t know about personal healthy hygiene and importance of unity. The women were not so literate, they lacked awareness. But, now the situation is changed, they’ve become more and more active. They actively took part in different activities and also run different programmes. “Once there was a workshop where women were more active than men”,says the area co-ordinator Sulatana Banu, smilingly.

“It’s good to see positive changes. The women whom i knew in the beginning didn’t know how to hold a pen, and now, they can read and write their names. It’s a great achievement”, says Kritika Dawadi a volunteer from Nyayik Sansar.Image

Not only child day care center and active women groups, Kalimati Day Care Center also has a non-political affiliated youth group of migrant youth workers in kalimati named ‘HAMI YUWA'( We Youth ). It is looked upon by its youth co-ordinator Upama Shrestha.

Kalimati Community Day care Center is a poject run by NGO NYAYIK SANSAR, along with parnternship from Israel’s TEVEL an INGO.

Here’s an  Anthem by Hami Yuwa…

Irsya garun duniya sarale
Garaun bikash yi yuwa sarale
chariyeka yuwa sathi ek joot bhai lage
ke chahi hunna, hami sabai bikash prati lage

Irsya garun duniya sarale
Garaun bikash yi yuwa sarale

Jimmewari Baadphaand gari karya pura garaun
ek joot bhai samajlai parwartan garaun

Irsya garun duniya sarale
Garaun bikash yi yuwa sarale

Andha bishwash hatayera ritiriwaj jogaun
najanelai sikau sathi janne bata sikaun

Irsya garun duniya sarale
Garaun bikash yi yuwa sarale

I am really inspired by this man!!!

 

Peng Shuilin had half of his body amputated after being run over by a truck. But he never gave up! His recovery has amazed surgeons after almost two years undergoing a series of operations. 
The vice-president of the hospital where this 37-year old Chinese man has been treated said: Image
“He is amazing and the only person in the world to survive having so much of his body amputated.”
He’s doing well now and has opened his own bargain supermarket – called the Half Man-Half Price Store. That’s incredible.

He did it even after such a tragedy with his body, then can’t we just think for a second and do something productive in our life with our fit and sound body parts ? Need some thinking, ain’t it??

We should not Give up Whatever the situations are. If he can, everybody can!
