The Love of My Motherland

I have  been living in the United States for the past 13 years, I often find myself feeling a deep sense of longing for my home country of Nepal. However, this feeling is often accompanied by a sense of sadness and frustration, as I am constantly bombarded by news of the many injustices and tragedies that occur there on a daily basis. 

Most troubling news comes that women in Nepal are often victimized by the patriarchal system that dominates them in the society. Whether it is through violence, discrimination, or other forms of oppression, it seems that women are always bearing the brunt of society's inequalities. This is especially

disheartening when one of the educated women lost her own life by her own effort since her boy friend denied to marry her after several years of relationship. This is just an example and there are numerous hidden horrible stories about women destiny in Nepal.  Women are often tasked with the  biggest share of responsibility for both the outside and the family, even as they are denied many of the same opportunities and privileges afforded to their male counterparts.

In recent years, the situation has only seemed to be getting worse. There was another tragic story about a woman who died from complications after being forced to undergo multiple abortions in an attempt to conceive a son. These kinds of stories leave me feeling deeply saddened and frustrated, and make me wonder what can be done to bring about change so women shouldn't die while developing into the fetus  just for being a female.

Of course, these issues are not unique to Nepal and Nepali community. Even among the Nepali community in the United States, there are many women who face significant challenges in their daily lives, often as a result of discrimination or other forms of prejudice.  They must work multiple jobs just to make their family keep on going. It is always difficult for them to balance the demands of work, family, and  keep their career going on.

Despite all these challenges, I am always hopeful. I believe that by working together and supporting one another, we can create a better future for all women, both in Nepal and around the world. This will require us to be vigilant and proactive in addressing gender inequality wherever it occurs, and to be willing to speak out against injustice and oppression whenever we see it. 

Education is one of the most vital necessities for women in order to thrive and succeed. However, it is not just any kind of education that women require. Women need an education that not only empowers them to stand on their own feet but also makes them emotionally, mentally, and physically strong. This type of education equips women with the tools to face any situation, regardless of its magnitude or nature, and to challenge the gender-based norms and structures that often hold them back.

With such an education, women are able to build the courage necessary to confront the challenges that come their way, particularly those imposed by their male counterparts. They become better equipped to fight for their rights, to resist oppression, and to demand equality in all aspects of life. Ultimately, an education that empowers women is the foundation for a more just and equitable society, one in which women are able to fulfill their potential and contribute meaningfully to their families, communities, and the world at large.

Ultimately, my sincere hope is that by sharing my own experiences and insights, I can contribute to raising awareness about the challenges and issues that women face in Nepal and in the Nepali diaspora community. Through our collective efforts and solidarity, we can work towards creating a more just and equitable world for all. Therefore, I humbly request your support and cooperation in this mission to empower women and promote equality, so that together we can create a better world for everyone..
