My daily life and undone homework !
Today i have come up with my homework and my daily life. At first I present my homework and then about my daily life .
Amy, I have tried to link the sentences. I don't know it will be o.k. or not.
Here I go...
1. Despite being very busy in my office works I read Amy's blog and comments to my blog.
2. Though for some of you it may be a repetition eventhen I would like to go in details about the materials and the construction of these huts.
3. The roof is thatched roof and the height is around 2 to 2.5 meters.
4. Red mud is used more than white mud in some places of Nepal because of its availability.
5. The metal sheet roof makes the top story too hot during the day time yet people prefer it to be tension free from maintining this every year.
In my last blog I felt that I wrote more about the dress of brahamin caste in Nepal. I couldn't include and explain more dress for example tharu people. They themselves wear different dress depending on the places. Most of the dress are of brahamin, Kshetri and Newar. I wrote " it smells more like that". I felt my writing little bit biased so I mentioned that.
Kishore Jee, you are right I put more women dress than the man and also i couldn't include all the dress which we see in Nepal.
Here is the natioanl dress of man which i forgot to include last time. I didn't do gender balance last time. sorry for that.
Let's move to the comments on houses in Nepal.
Yes, Amy we have certain procedure which should be completed before we start building a house. In Nepal most of the houses are built in private property. For big building for instance supermarket, shopping mall can be built in leased land which should be returned back to government according to the agreement done between party and the government. The specified period be 25 , 50 years.
The next thing is the drawing of the house should be approved by municipality and house should be made in certain distance from the access road if there is any,
And also there are laws which don’t allow making building more than 3 stories. It is applied in the king’s way where there is a palace and near and around durbar squares to save the beauty of the area and to conserve the heritage area. I think there are more places but I don't have idea about that.
Now about charity shops:
Here in Nepal also we have some charity shops some of them are in the name of orphan children, some are in the name of disabled and some in the name of women.
I know about the one in Bhanktapur, they prepare pashmina shawls, scarf, handkerchiefs and put for sale. I haven't got chance to go there. When I find time I will go and try.
Now i would like to go to my everyday life. Though its not interesting I am writing.
Its not that specific as Amy wrote but I will try to write in order.
I wake up around 6 AM. I am a late sleeper. My blood pressure is low and I have heard that a person with a low blood pressure can’t wake up early. So even if I want to wakeup early I can’t do that.
After waking up I finish daily personal routine. These days I am living with my friend. Prior to breakfast we like to have leaf tea and then we prepare breakfast together and have it. The very common dish in the breakfast are bread omlet and milk tea and some pieces of seasonal fruit. After breakfast it’s almost 7.30. I take shower and then change my dress and I become ready before 8 and leave my house at 8 to 8.05. This is the fixed time for me to leave for office. I reach the bus stop 8:15 and I take the local microbus sometimes take a LPG operated tempo and reach the office 8:30. For me from 6 to 8:30 is like an express bus.
In this period of time neither I like to get any call nor do I like to receive any call. Even a second is very important for me.
Busy in office from 8:30 to 12 noon. As soon as clock shows 12, I start going for lunch. In between 12 to 2 I can use 1 hour for lunch. It’s very hot out side. Some times I go to my brother’s place who lives near by my office and some times to the restaurants around my office. I sweat when I go and come back. But I feel hungry what to do I need to go.
I returned back to office around 1 to 01: 15 and then again busy doing works till 5:30. I leave office at 5:35 to 5:45 PM. I rush to bus. Since it’s the office time I got stocked in heavy traffic jam. I reach to house at 6:30. It takes little bit much time than in the morning because I do shopping on the way while returning back to house.
When I reach to house I take shower and have black leaf tea and start cooking. The common dinner for us is rice, vegetable curry, chicken/fish and pickle. At 8 PM is our regular time for watching TV for Nepali news. At 8:30 we take our dinner and around 9 finish with cleaning kitchen. 9:15 we sat for meditation for 30 to 45 minutes and then go for sleep.
This is how I pass in usual case but there might be some exceptions. Saturday and Sunday are my weekends. off course these days differ from other weekdays.
Thank god it’s Friday!
Now its 5:35 I am leaving.
Have a nice weekend!
