Lessons for Nepalis

Nepal is changing


Change is one of the most challenging parts to accept. Very few people like change, we all like to sit in our comfort zone. We do not want to get that out of the box and explore the uncertainty of what will happen. Nepal has been through a lot of changes from our Kirat dynasty to the Shah dynasty finally becoming a republic. Each era brought its own rules and was modified on each rule. It’s funny to see the same prime minister turning up, again and again, four times.

Yet if you want to change it should start from within us, I am by no means a qualified person to preach in that but in this democratic era, I too can vote my opinion. Some of them are as follows, these small changes can build a well-built moral country.

  • Never give advice until you’re asked.
  • Do not make plans in front of those friends you are not involved.
  • Don’t talk to someone if they have headphones in. As I can see almost all the teens are the earphones in Nepal.
  • Don’t close-talk/invade someone’s personal space, even to your own wife.
  • Do not use your cell phone at movies etc.. it breaks the “spell” and distracts from others’ enjoyment of the performance.
  • If someone pays for your meal, invite them over/take them out for a meal sometime. Even if they decline, it’s the invitation that matters.
  • Don’t talk whilst chewing. This is the manner which most of us have to learn, would you like grain from someone’s mouth in your face?
  • The right side of the escalator is for standing, the left side is for walking. Shopping malls are rising hence this is something that needs to be understood.
  • If a person is speaking directly to you, staring at your phone is rude as shit. This is the worst habit to have.

Don’t date your friend’s exes.

  • Be quiet when other people are asleep. That means more than not talking — not slamming doors, drawers, etc. We need to respect that either in the home or in the hotel.
  • Recycle more, consume less.
  • If someone is being quiet and doesn’t look like in a mood to talk, don’t nag them by asking ‘what’s wrong?’ every freaking second. Give them some space and ask once or twice max. If they want to, they’ll come up and share it with you
  • If invited to a meet anyone and expected to arrive at 7 P.M., arrive no later than 15 minutes after the hour unless you have a good excuse. The waiting game is the most hated part where people become offended and then aggressive. After which the whole scenario becomes a different one. Trust me in this.

Put things back where you found them while shopping in the supermarket.

love n peace to all-
