Here in Nepal we are still under LOCKDOWN. It has been two months since we start staying
at home. Everything still shut down. Now the COVID-19 is spreading in large numbers then
early days. It’s because of open border, southern Nepal bordering India. Till today
there are 3 dead in Nepal, 450 positive infected cases and thousands in quarantine.
Hundreds and thousands of people from Nepal are in India for Job and they are all coming
back now. It’s going to be very very difficult time as we don’t have good health care facilities
and human resources to tackle it. With the very limited source and facilities the government
is trying to handle it. In Kathmandu itself there are 19 positive cases and much much more
in southern Nepal. In India there are more than 105,000 positive cases and over 3500 dead.
It’s really alarming and serious for Nepal as we have very open and long long border
All of our kids are with their parents and family. They are much safer in their villages as no
such cases detected in mountainous villages till now. We were supposed to start our school
from mid April but couldn’t do so because of this COVID19 pandemic. We even couldn’t
bring out the final exam reports as well as we had to closed down everything right after the
final exam day. We will bring out the results after getting things into normal. We already
missed more than month’s school days but we can still adjust it with the holidays in
coming months. Let’s hope for better days sooner.
Many of our parents are rely on tourism business like, porter, trek guide, small lodge and
tea shops around mountains and hilly regions. They already missed the last season and
there are no sign of getting better during the up coming tourist seasons in Nepal.
They grows corps but only once in a year with the limited land.
The tourism business has gone down totally to ground level since last March. It’s going
to be very hard days coming for our parents to survive. It’s really going to be very hard time
for every one in this world.
I shall keep you writing on time to time about the situation. All my heartiest gratitude for all
your love and support for our kids and I admire all your good heart and supporting the
most deserving one. There are always a light after the dark side and we can definitely
have the better days ahead …..
With all our prayers, thoughts and love…
STAY SAFE and BE STRONGER….
