Poetry is one of the hardest pieces of writing to translate into different languages. Poetry is written to sound a certain way, built together with crisp letters, and fractured words. When you transfer it into a different language, you lose some of that special creativity. Most languages have a hard time transferring correctly, some meanings and words are lost in this process. After understanding this, I realized I was not able to grasp the full concept of this piece of writing. In this poem, A Gloomy Face, Anuj Ghiimire uses words and phrases like “Like a light bending in the path of a black hole… everything around me turning gloomy” I can only imagine that that Anuj went through an event, missing someone or having an illness, lead her to feel these dark and heavy feelings. Some syntax used in this piece include “a black hole, a dark hole, inside me, a hole” along with “no smile, no jokes can fill the void”. Our author is greatly in need of something, something important that she needs filled in her life. Culturally, I can make connections to her feelings and it helps me realize that we are all humans and we all share similar feelings. I enjoyed sharing this connection with someone all the way across the world.

The story, on the other hand, was a bit different. When this was translated into English, I think we misinterpreted some things. I found myself lost and confused, but this could have been to my fault, and lack of knowledge with literature with this genre. Rane and Seti are neighbors to a man they can hardly get along with. Lahure is very loud, brings home a lot of girls, and argues with Seti on the daily. One night, Rane and Seti wake to an uncomfortable feeling and sounds that something might be wrong across the hall at Lahure’s. Seti and Rane run to check through the peep hole to see a woman leave Lahures room and no more movement or noise. Seti fears something ,ight be wrong with Lahure and rushes over. Seti and Rane find him dead, mudered. The rest of the story takes place as Rane makes the decision to run in fear that he might be blamed, or to stick it out and tell the truth. Pushkar Shamsher perfectly gave good word choice like “His eyes stared steadfastly into the void.” I can see Rane, sitting and staring, as any of us would if we were to find someone dead, on the floor with a pool of blood. Culturally, it made me stop and think about if this was something that happened often. In poorer countries, death is more frequent and dealt with more than we experience here. It intrigues me, and I will increase my knowledge about Nepal and it’s everyday lives among the citizens there, as I do plan to take a trip there next May.

“Couple use wedding to fight brain drain in Nepal”

Finding a place for education is hard, it becomes even harder if you do not live in a major city. Many children grow up in unsafe places and are forced to travel abroad to work. Kumar met Mia, the woman he decided he wanted to marry. The couple, looking at Nepal’s conditions, decided they wanted to be part of something larger than themselves. Kumar and Mia are lucky enough to have found each other, and someone else who shares the same ideas about education. Neither of them will see a single pennies worth of money that could have been used towards their marriage or future life together. The lovers have decided to donate all to a non-profit organization who focuses on building education for Nepal. They hope to be able to reach many smaller cities, in hopes to educate the majority.


Nepal struggles with educating their future generations. When nothing is done, nothing changes, and their culture cannot grow and develop. Many people take for granted what we are given in this life, but that is because they do not see the little other people have. I’m glad that people are starting to make the change they want to see in their community and country. If Nepal continues to progress this way, nothing but good and blessings are heading their way.

Nepal consists of 28.51 million people as of 2015. Kathmandu, Nepal’s capitol, houses 1,442,271 of those people. Other major countries are Pokhara, Patan, Janakpur, and Biratnagar. Nepali is the most spoken and is the native language. Nepal’s agriculture is the majority of their employment, food, and income. Women make up the majority as rice farmers, while men are more into terraced farming. 75% of which being exports. When traveling to Nepal, it needs to be sure you are cautious as food and waterborne illnesses are common, along with malaria, hepatitis A and E, and Japanese encephalitis. The Hindu religion is the biggest practice, followed by Buddhist, Muslim, and Christianity. Nepal is a beautiful country, full of adventure and beautiful views. I am very excited to keep expanding my knowledge on Nepal.

Why Nepal?

I chose Nepal to research for this project. Nepal had an earthquake a few years ago, leaving a bunch of people injured and dead. My brother left for over four months to go and help with a humanitarian project. During the first month, he met a girl named Jessica, who later became his wife. Nepal can be a big city, full of cars, or the country, with tons of sheep. Nepal is home to Mount Everest, even though many Indians try to claim it. I expect to learn more cultural facts and learn native’s opinions on the country they live in. I love learning the many cultures of the world and am excited to learn.
