It isn’t a new thing for me to fall in love with almost every place I travel. Sometimes, it’s the smell of the place, the other times, it’s the people or the food or the lifestyle. It doesn’t need to boast the best infrastructure or the finest facilities. Sometimes, smaller things make you feel happy about it. Though people say that you love a place you travel to because you have very limited time to get to know the not-so-good sides of it. Well, I agree. But, that doesn’t stop me from loving the places I visit.
I have been to Baglung a couple of times now. And both of the times, I felt very local there.
First thing I liked was that there was no load-shedding. For a person who goes through load-shedding every night, seeing light throughout the day is like no less than visiting a foreign nation. This helps me remind the days when we used to have lights most of the times, and at least enjoy the thought of it.
The streets of the town was clean. People collected the garbage and threw the waste in an organized way of waste management rather than throwing the waste in the nearby chwok.
People are friendly. As Nepal is known for its “friendly citizens”, we get to experince this when we go out of the capital, where selfishness has overshadowed the friendliness.
Probably there were other sides of the town too. But during short stays I have been there, couldn’t figure out any. And for an urban dweller, these small things create excitement.

Here goes for the two ladies who did so…

Facebook, YouTube are great things – some of the best inventions of the mankind – along other technologies. I was going through Facebook yesterday when I saw this video.
I mean, WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING? The composer (or the translator, I should say), the singers and the actor who appeared in the song. Are we so non-creative that we had to copy to that extent?
