After Earthquake Day 36Sleep less night and prayers

Text and Photo: Ashesh Dangol

It was around 10:13 pm at night and people came out from their house again. It was just 4.3 according to the news but it felt little bit harder than the other 4.3.

Earthquake doesn’t kill people but the construction of the buildings do. And most of the houses in Kathmandu is made of concrete and there are lots of illegal tall buildings all over the city. People cannot sleep at night due to continue after shocks and the concrete buildings with out the builders certificate.

People are feeling helpless and frustrated. The self-made illegal buildings became the killing machine. What do we have learned after the massive Earthquake in 1990 B.S ?

s o r r y m u m om kjerringer - dårlig samvittighet, illusjoner, kjønnsroller og et åpent sinn

Ei kjerring, av norrønt kerling, er ei gift kone eller ei gammal kvinne av det breie lag av folket. Ordet seier noko om kjønn, samfunnslagslag og alder eller ektesapeleg status; for somme kan det ha ein negativ biklang eller bli oppfatta direkte nedsetjande. WikipediaVi har gjennomgått tiår med kvinnefokus og kamp for kvinners rettigheter.  Etter fokus på oppvaskhansker og kjoleforklær, zalo og salmiakk i en periode dukket Nora for alvor opp og Dukkehjemmet ble rokket ved. Kjerringa i det hjemmet var Torvald.
Noen av oss vokste opp med sannheter som viste seg ikke å holde mål. Sannheter og illusjoner fra 60- og 70-tallet falt for mange i grus på 80- og 90-tallet da vi etablerte oss med barn og familie og forstod at vi var nettopp det: kvinner. For da angrep kjønnsrollene – eller naturen, vil enkelte påstå – oss i et bakholdsangrep vi ikke var forberedt på etter kjønnsfornektelsen i oppveksten. For enkelte av oss var det selvfølgeligheten som falt. Selvfølgeligheten vi var oppdratt i og…

s o r r y m u m sharing - find your WHY

Simon Sinek: https://youtu.be/nRaqe9M2DYc
Take a good look at your life. Do you enjoy what you`re doing? Do you have a reason for doing it? WHY do you do what you do? Do you wake up in the morning happy and eager to go to work?
Simon Sinek put it all in perspective for me. After I found my WHY it inspires and gives me the drive I need to work on my new project. It also taught me why my previous start-ups didn`t become a huge success. I didn`t know why I did it. I knew what I was doingand how I how to do it, but my heart was not in it. This time I found my WHY and it gives me the inspiration I need to do what is required to make it a success. Although sometimes I forget my WHY and get lost in numbers and emptiness, which I regard to be leftoverthoughts from previous startups and experiences. But when my WHY clicks in again, it gets me back on the right track immediately, and I feel pure joy and an insane urge to work and share. By the way - the success I reach for is not about money. Tha…
