FountainDew, I don't know why you assumed that i'm working full time in a gasstation, struggling with studies and working 18 hours a day. I'm not doing any of that. Also, I was lucky enough that I did not have to do any of those when I was in college.However, I feel sorry for younge brothers like you who had to work 18 hours a day in the summer( Illegal too, wasn't it?) Why? why did you not come in masters like most Indians in my department did and received Teaching and research assistanceship? When you were busting your balls working 18 hours a day( chu chu chu) they were visiting home and having fun taking tours with their money saved from thier assistanship.
Yes, you're right. We need to be proactive. And we need to think smart like Zalim Singh said. That is exactlywhat i've been saying. But you and other pumpus self proclaimed ,successful- hardworking - proactive Nepalis, do not see my point although I repeated it several times in this thread and in other threads .
I am not saying don't come to USA foo. I am saying come here for masters where funds are available most of the time. I am saying come here prepaired loco. Doesn't that mean be "proactive" ?
I am saying come here with enough research done in advance. Also,come here with good resource , whether it is fund, scholorship or personal finance. That is what I am trying to say. And don't know why you hard working, proactive Nepali who also worked 18 hours a day and worked in a gas station to go through school would not like to give out some realistic outlook of life here as an F1 undergrads to the dying to come here Nepali students. It is funny in way that i have to come and explain my simple point to such educated US graduates.
Is awaring someone a crime? or are you guys so touched because your reputation of being successful among far living Nepalis is hurt by thread like this which potrayas real situation in the USA?
Maybe people are trying to go Nepal and get married or and don't want anything bad about USA to be brought up.. hmmmmmmmmm
Well good luck brothers.. and peace and love
So USA girl i don't quite understand,what you are trying to say. U are going to get citizenship isn't that ur option if you want to take it or not.. even though u are the citizen, door of nepal is always open for you.... testo kura gare ra ta bhaye na ni nani....
until nepal is a republic, i shall not let my nepalese citizenship go away from me... i shall always be a nepalese, but i deny citizenship of republic nepal... i would rather be somalian than a subject of a republic nepal...
States2006, yours is really inspirational story. Thank you very much for sharing it with us. BTW, I am also from Moran and I guess the place that you have described is Letang or Kerabari or Rajarani or somewhere there. I am just curious. I felt great to know the successful story of a fellow from home district. Also, Managing academics and restaurant both at the same time is pretty tuff, isnâ€™t it?
states2006, Thank you so much for the heart touching yet the best ending story. SO many times we thinks dreams only come true in the movies but you are a true and good example. Good luck ( though I do not believe in luck) and all the best to you
wow wht an inpirational story frm states2006. i wanna know more how did u get to come here plese tell us more abt ur experiences. i m not trying to be nosy but i like hearing successful stories cuz these days all ppl do seems like is complain.
States2006 dai or should I say uncle, what a concidience meeting u here, well not really a concidience, everybody comes here. I had heard your story and have met u too, but never in your own words. Of course u don't know me, I mean know a Meera, there's no real person by that name. Anyways, when u open a shelter lemme know and I will run it. My dream is to open something anything for the ladies in remote areas of Nepal, am waiting for the whole army-maoist thing to clear up. They say dreams do come true, sometimes.
Phew I am lucky, unlike USAgirl, I don't have any bf to earn for. One qs though, if u r a citizen, why don't u sponsor for him? I like to think there's life in the US but then that could only be me.
hello meera... very inspiring things from you... are you in US or Nepal? My friend's wife who spent a few years in Nepal and speaks nepalese fluently. she is a nurse in bellingham, wa. she wants to start some kind of project for nepalese girls who are expoited in brothels and those who are deprived of opportunity to progress... if you have started something about it, she would be very happy to join your forces... she is talking with maiti-nepal and a few organizations, but nothing positive has been found for the things that she wants to do.. like you said, the politics will be have to be stable before you can start anything, however you can plan it out now... there are lot of things that you can prepare and then implement them when ready... i don't know her email but his is : firstname.lastname@example.org. she has asked our help but due to lack of knowledge in that field, i can only do a little for her... she goes to nepal once a year to learn something/anything about what she can do... very very very enthusiastic about making a difference for rural nepalese women... you may email me if you have q's.. well anyone can email me... if you have suggestions/opinions/idea... email@example.com
Hello Sujanks and Meera:
I am planning to visit Nepal by next year. It is very possible to collaborate in order to deliver services for children and women who are poor and suffering. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com. Sujanks, are you in Seattle? I visit Seattle at least x2/year.
Just wanted to add a few words to that. I think life is what you make of it be in Nepal or USA. I hear people whining life being difficult everywhere. Life is not easy...plain and simple. You have to work for what you want. I have a lot of respect for this country. I came here when was about 22 when to undergrad in WC. The only thing I came here was with my tution fee and 1500 that you are allowed to take. The first two semesters I did not do well and wanted to experience every thing...after that I put my @$$ down, moved to north east and started going to school and working full time. It was difficult..managing work, school and an active social life. . finally I finished my AA, BS and now MS and fortunatelyI dont owe a dime in student loan. I worked very hard I wanted to give up many times in the process I gave up a lot but now I have managed to own some properties work full time and life is still demanding but I cant complain about it. I am trying to set up funds to re-build schools in Nepal...so I would say I have been blessed. Those who sit on their @$$ and whine about life...believe me I have seen such others go through worse and be movers and shakers today.....
