Uncontrolled sand excavation in Tinau river, Butwal


This is the photo which I have taken 3 years back at Tinau river, Butwal Nepal. The river Tinau, has been providing employment to thousands of poor people and lucrative benefits to few crushers and businessmen. The excavation of sands and stones from the river and its legal (illegal) export to India, has many environmental impacts too. In the photo, we can see that the people have already excavated the sand from the underneath a development activities. In the picture, we can see that it is the "NAHAR HEAD (Canal Head)" of Tinau river on the past, from where already sand and gravels taken away. This is very risky to the worker also because anytime the upperstructure could be broken and buried them! Also, on the backgrounds we can see many houses on the middle of Tinau river. This place used to be one corpse burying places (Chihanghari) and many times the TINAU FLOODS had swaped it.

Is there any controlling organisation? Does BUTWAL Municapality or District Development Committe, Rupandehi have any responsibility? If some accidents happened then who should be blamed! Also,

The story of transformation of one gangster in the Philipinnes

Souce: CNN.com


At 16, Rhandolf Fajardo reflects on his former life as a gang member.

"My gang mates were the most influential thing in my life," says Fajardo, who joined a gang when he was in sixth grade. "We were pressured to join."

He's not alone. In the Philippines, teenage membership in urban gangs has surged to an estimated 130,000 in the past 10 years, according to the Preda Foundation, a local human rights charity. "I thought I'd get stuck in that situation and that my life would never improve," recalls Fajardo. "I would probably be in jail right now, most likely a drug addict -- if I hadn't met Efren."

Efren Peñaflorida, 28, also was bullied by gangs in high school. Today, he offers Filipino youth an alternative to gang membership through education. "Gang members are groomed in the slums as early as 9 years old," says Peñaflorida. "They are all victims of poverty."

For the past 12 years, Peñaflorida and his team of teen volunteers have taught basic reading and writing to children living on the streets. Their main tool: A pushcart classroom. Stocked with books, pens, tables and chairs, his Dynamic Teen Company recreates a school setting in unconventional locations such as the cemetery and municipal trash dump.

Peñaflorida knows firsthand the adversity faced by these children. Born into a poor family, he lived in a shanty near the city dump site. But he says he refused to allow his circumstances to define his future.

"Instead of being discouraged, I promised myself that I would pursue education," he recalls. "I will strive hard; I will do my best." In high school, Peñaflorida faced a new set of challenges. Gang activity was rampant; they terrorized the student body, vandalized the school and inducted members by forcing them to rape young girls, he says.

"I felt the social discrimination. I was afraid to walk down the street."

Peñaflorida remembers standing up to a gang leader, refusing to join his gang. That confrontation proved fateful. At 16, he and his friends "got the idea to divert teenagers like us to be productive," he says.

He created the Dynamic Teen Company to offer his classmates an outlet to lift up themselves and their community. For Peñaflorida, that meant returning to the slums of his childhood to give kids the education he felt they deserved.

"They need education to be successful in life. It's just giving them what others gave to me," he says. Today, children ranging from ages 2 to 14 flock to the pushcart every Saturday to learn reading, writing, arithmetic and English from Peñaflorida and his trained teen volunteers. "Our volunteers serve as an inspiration to other children," he says.

The group also runs a hygiene clinic, where children can get a bath and learn how to brush their teeth.

Since 1997, an estimated 10,000 members have helped teach more than 1,500 children living in the slums. The organization supports its efforts by making and selling crafts and collecting items to recycle. Through his group, Peñaflorida has successfully mentored former gang members, addicts and dropouts, seeing potential where others see problems. "Before, I really didn't care for my life," says Michael Advincula, who started doing drugs when he was 7. "But then Efren patiently dug me from where I was buried. It was Efren who pushed me to get my life together."

Today, Advincula is a senior in high school and one of the group's volunteers.

Peñaflorida hopes to expand the pushcart to other areas, giving more children the chance to learn and stay out of gangs."I always tell my volunteers that you are the change that you dream and I am the change that I dream. And collectively we are the change that this world needs to be."

'Everyone Should Have the Right to Credit'

A Mind blowing interview with Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus from Bangladesh Source: Spiegel Online

Microcredit loans have revolutionized the world of finance in developing nations. Now Muhammad Yunus, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate behind the concept, wants to see similar programs in the industrialized world. In a SPIEGEL ONLINE interview, he explains why Germany's poor should be given loans.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Mr. Yunus, you provide microcredit to people in developing countries through the Grameen Bank. Is a similar program required in Germany?

Muhammad Yunus: Definitely. Even in Germany, there are lots of people who are being shut out of the banking system, like unemployed people. Bankers see them as too big a risk. Yet they are the very people who need loans.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Why? The unemployed get state support.

Yunus: That is the usual system in rich countries, like Germany. But there is no incentive to generate new income on unemployment payments. The next payment is coming next month after all. This robs people of initiative. One could also give the unemployed microcredit, allowing them to start their own businesses. Capable people should not sit in front of the television, like zombies, without having something to do. Their potential and skills go unused, their creativity is wasted.

SPIEGEL ONILNE: Would you grant microcredit to every jobless person?

Yunus: Everyone should have the right to a loan. You could say that you'll give someone €100 or loan them €500. It's a better way to distribute money. If only half of the people pay back the money, then it's already a success. And if the person receiving the loan is successful, that will encourage others. Pride returns.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: There are already a lot of opportunities for jobless people to receive subsidies to start a business from the state. The KfW bank, a federal institute, already gives small loans. Why does Germany nevertheless need microcredit?

Yunus: State programs usually have strict bureaucratic procedures, from which there is no deviation. Some people raise their capital from this system and get around the rules. Not because they need the loans but because they know they can trick the system. Others don't even make the cut because they don't fit a certain profile. Also, the state is not necessarily interested in sustainability when providing credit. Finally, the money is financed by tax payers.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Does that mean microcredit should instead come from private institutions?

Yunus: I don't want to use the word "private." That means that the lender expects to earn money from the loan. I see microcredit as a social business. Social business means that you take on a certain social problem with an enterprise. Profits are then reinvested back into the social business. In addition, costs have to be covered. That is why we demand interest.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: At rather high rates. The Grameen Bank sometimes asks for as much as 20 percent.

Yunus: Of course low interest is good. But when an institution has to support itself, then we can't offer an interest rate that doesn't allow the institution to be run sustainably.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: You've also created programs in developing countries for beggars that don't demand interest payments. Do these loans get paid back?

Yunus: Yes. The rate of repayment is actually very high. We don't take any interest because we don't want to apply pressure. The beggars should feel comfortable taking the money.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Then where does the motivation to pay the money back come from?

Yunus: If the beggar pays back the money, then they get a new loan with the same conditions. In our experience, it works.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Would that work also with homeless people in Germany?

Yunus: It's something we should try. It would be a new situation and, of course, I can't tell you now if it would work. I also wouldn't want to give a loan to every beggar, but would try it out first with one. If that works, then one can extend credit to the next person. When one starts, others follow. It worked in Bangladesh and many other countries.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Which criteria do you set in order to give loans to the poorest of the poor?

Yunus: We first try to understand why someone becomes a beggar. Usually, there was some turning point in their life. It is easy to say that beggars don't want to work but it's possible that this is not at all true. Then we discuss with them what they could do, make a business plan and provide them with funding.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Does every beggar have a business idea?

Yunus: The human spirit is infinitely creative. If you keep thinking about something, eventually you find a solution.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Microcredit seems to works so well because there is moral pressure from the community on the person who takes out the loan. However, German culture is very individualistic and people often live anonymously. Would microcredit still work here?

Yunus: Look at New York. There, residents don't usually know who lives next door. When someone dies, it often goes unnoticed. But microcredit is functioning there. Through the programs, we bring people together and suddenly, they have friends. That's where the community pressure comes from.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Have you been to a country where microcredit didn't work?

Yunus: No. People need money. We live in a world where money is important.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: There are branches of the Grameen Bank, which you founded in 1983, in several countries around the world. When will you open a branch in Germany?

Yunus: I get asked a lot why there still isn't a branch in Germany. But I won't come from Bangladesh and say "I want to introduce microcredit here." Someone has to come to me and say: "Hey, can you help us with this?"

SPIEGEL ONLINE: And no one has asked you yet?

Yunus: A few people once came to me asking for assistance in creating a kind of ecological microcredit bank in Germany. But they lost interest and had other things on their mind.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Many companies are active in social business -- another idea which started with you. BASF is selling mosquito nets that even very poor people can afford, Danone sells cheap vitamin-rich yogurt, while Veolia has created a social business offering affordable drinking water. Which company will you convince next to undertake a social business?

Yunus: I don't convince anybody. I wait for them to come to me. They don't even have to work with me. They can do it on their own initiative. I don't want to expand my bank, but rather spread the idea.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Adidas has recently announced that it will also be getting involved in a social business. Did you go to Adidas or did the company ask you for advice?

Yunus: The people from Adidas came to me. They asked me what they could do and then I told them that they need to have a goal, a mission. That could be: No one in the world has to run around without a pair of shoes. The shoe must, of course, be affordable, and that makes it a social business.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Why are shoes so important?

Yunus: Many people don't know that shoes can protect them from disease. Many parasites get into the body by penetrating the feet. If all children had shoes, we could prevent many illnesses. If Adidas can succeed with this idea, then other businesses will follow. There is a new kind of competition emerging -- the competition to help other people.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Why do social businesses work?

Yunus: There are two sides to every person: selfishness and selflessness. The selfless part is just as strong as the selfish side, we just haven't admitted that yet. Most businesses are based on selfishness but why can't we build a business on selflessness? To help others is a joy. We don't want to abolish capitalism but complete it. Selfishness and selflessness belong equally there.

Life Story of Sahana Pradhan

सहाना प्रधान नेपाली अग्रणी महिला नेत्री हुन् उनका जीवनका कति कुरा प्रेरणाप्रद छन् कति कुरा बडो दुःखप्रद पनि रहेछन् सबैभन्दा राम्रो जीवनको उकाली-ओरालीमा साहस हिम्मतसाथ जुध्न सक्ने उनको क्षमता सम्पूर्ण नारीले मात्र होइन, पुरुषले समेत अनुकरण गर्न योग्य छन् नेपाल कम्युनिस्ट पार्टीका संस्थापक पुष्पलालकी जीवनसंगिनी सहानाको जीवन निकै संघर्षपूर्ण रह्यो एमाले नेत्री सहानाको प्रत्यक्ष अनुभूतिमा कस्ता थिए होलान् पुष्पलाल ? उनी पुष्पलाललाई यसरी सम्भिmन्छिन्-

त्यो ००४ साल वैशाख १७ गतेको दिन थियो । हामी राणाविरुद्धको आन्दोलनमा सहभागी हुँदै थियौँ । त्यही दिन कमरेड पुष्पलालसँग मेरो पहिलो भेट भएको हो । मलाई त राजनीतिका धेरै कुरा थाहा थिएनन् । छोरीले पनि पढ्न पाउनुपर्छ भन्ने चेतनाले म र दिदी साधना राणाविरुद्धको आन्दोलनमा सहभागी भएका थियौँ । हाम्रो आन्दोलनको सफलतास्वरूप पद्मशमशेरले ००४ सालमा पद्मकन्या स्कुल खोलिदिए । यसैको विकसित रूप डिल्लीबजारस्थित अहिलेको कन्या स्कुल हो ।

स्कुल त खोलियो तर त्यहाँ प्राइमरी कक्षा मात्र चलाइन्थ्यो । सात कक्ष्ाासम्म त दिदी र मैले बर्मामै पढेका थियौँ । हामीलाई फेरि पढ्न समस्या भयो । पछि हामीलाई घरमै पढ्ने व्यवस्था मिलाइयो । मैले घरमै पढेर पनि टेस्ट परीक्षा पास गरेँ । यसरी मैले ००४ सालमा एसएलसी पनि पास गरेँ ।

साधना दिदी र म पढ्न लखनउ पुग्यौँ । त्यहाँ अमेरिकी मिसनरी 'इजावेला थोर्वन' कलेजमा हामी आइए भर्ना भयौँ । ००४ सालको आन्दोलनमा लागेर भेट भएदेखि नै पुष्पलालजीको मप्रति आकर्षण रहेछ । तर, मलाई त्यो कुरा थाहा थिएन । हुन त त्यस आन्दोलनमा पक्राउ परेर ब्यारेकमा १५ दिन हामी सँगै बसेका थियौँ । हातमा मसाल बोकेर हामी सँगै पनि हिँडेका थियौँ । त्यस आन्दोलनपछि उहाँ बनारस जानुभयो र नेपाली कांग्रेसको कार्यालयसचिव भएर काम गर्न थाल्नुभयो । म लखनउमा पढिरहेको वेला दुईपटक मलाई भेट्न आउनुभएको थियो । पढाइको सिलसिलामा म देशबाहिर पुगेकी हुनाले हाम्रो भेट हुन भने पाएन ।

**

कम्युनिस्ट पार्टीको स्थापनापछि पुष्पलालजी नेपालमा भूमिगत रूपमा आउनुभएको थियो । ००७ सालमा यता आउनुभएको वेला मलाई विवाहको प्रस्ताव राख्नुभयो । हामी दिदीबहिनीको विवाह गर्ने कुरा दिमागबाटै हटिसकेको थियो । मैले पुष्पलालजीलाई 'आफ्नो खुट्टामा उभिएपछि मात्रै विवाह गर्छु' भनिदिएँ ।

००९ सालमा पार्टीको काममा हामी भारत जानलाग्दा पुष्पलालजी नेपाल आउन लाग्नुभएको रहेछ । त्यसैवेला उहाँसँग रेलमा फेरि मेरो भेट भयो । त्यसवेला प्रजापरिषद्सँग मिलेर जनतान्त्रिक मोर्चा निर्माण गर्ने कुरा लिएर उहाँ नेपाल आउन लाग्नुभएको रहेछ । हामी भारतमा एक महिना प्रशिक्षित भयौँ ।

त्यहाँबाट फर्केपछि पुष्पलालजीले फेरि विवाहको प्रस्ताव दोहोर्‍याउनुभयो । म फेरि आपतमा परेँ । म आफ्नै खुट्टामा उभिन सक्ने भइसकेकी थिएँ । तर, घरमा कसैलाई पनि मैले पुष्पलालजीसँग विवाह गरोस् भन्ने चाहना थिएन । त्यसवेला नेवारमा पाँचथरे र ६ थरे भन्ने चलन थियो । पुष्पलालजी पाँचथरे र म ६ थरे पर्‍यौँ । हाम्रो जात पनि मिलेन । त्यसमाथि पनि पुष्पलालजीको परिवारमाथि गहिरो आर्थिक संकट थियो । उहाँको परिवारमाथि राजनीतिक रूपले पनि प्रशासनको आँखा परेको थियो । छोरीले दुःख पाउँछे भनेर परिवारले हाम्रो विवाह स्वीकार नगरेको हो । यसैबीच पुष्पलालजीको सबै सम्पत्ति सरकारले जफत पनि गर्‍यो । विवाहको कुरा चलेपछि हाम्रो घरमा पूरै विरोध भयो ।

साधना दिदीको मनमोहनजीसँग प्रेमसम्बन्ध थियो । तर, उहाँ बाहुन भएको र अरू कुरा पनि ठीकै भएकाले त्यति समस्या थिएन । उहाँहरू हाम्रो नै पहिला विवाह होस् भन्ने चाहनुहुन्थ्यो । पार्टीबाट 'जसरी पनि हामीले विवाह गर्नैपर्छ' भन्ने निर्णय आयो । म पनि विवाह गर्ने निर्णयमा पुगेँ । मेरो परिवारको स्वीकृति भने थिएन । विवाहमा पुष्पलालजीको सबै परिवार आएको थियो । मेरो परिवारबाट भने कोही पनि सहभागी भएन । त्यो ०१० साल माघ २ गतेको दिन थियो । मेरोभन्दा ८/९ महिनापछि साधना दिदीको मनमोहनजीसँग विजेश्वरीमा विवाह भयो । त्यसवेला बुबा, आमा सबै उपस्थित हुनुहुन्थ्यो ।

**

पुष्पलालजीको घरको आर्थिक अवस्था निकै कमजोर थियो । त्यसको असर मलाई पनि पर्ने नै भयो । विवाहभन्दा पहिले जस्तो म स्वतन्त्र रूपले राजनीतिमा लाग्न पाइनँ । बुहारी भइसकेपछि छुट्टै बोझ थाप्लोमा आइपर्दोरहेछ ।

०११ सालमा छोरी उषा जन्मिँदा नेपालमा कम्युनिस्ट पार्टीमाथि प्रतिबन्ध थियो । पार्टी भूमिगत थियो र पुष्पलालजी पनि भूमिगत हुनुहुन्थ्यो । छोरीको हेरचाहले गर्दा पार्टीमा मेरो भूमिका बिस्तारै कम हुन थाल्यो । विवाहपछिको जीवन मलाई अनौठो लाग्दै गयो । एक किसिमको जीवनबाट अर्को कुनै संसारमा पुगेँछु भन्ने लाग्यो । पार्टीको मिटिङमा जाँदा परिवारबाट निकै आलोचना व्यहोर्नुपथ्र्यो । कतिपटक म भागेर पनि मिटिङमा गएकी छु । मलाई ससुराले भने माया गर्नुहुन्थ्यो । पार्टीको काममा सहयोग पनि गर्नुहुन्थ्यो । नत्र त परिवारसँग डराइडराई राजनीति गर्नुपथ्र्यो । मेरो राजनीति र पुष्पलालजीको भूमिगत राजनीतिलाई हाम्रो संयुक्त परिवारले त्यति रुचाएन । अन्ततः हामी छुट्टयिौँ । अब राजनीति मैले चटक्कै छाड्नुपर्‍यो । नचाहँदा पनि राजनीति छुट्यो ।

**

पुष्पलालजी साह्रै नम्र स्वभावको मान्छे हुनुहुन्थ्यो । घरमा मात्रै होइन, बाहिर पनि उहाँ उत्तिकै नम्र हुनुहुन्थ्यो । उहाँ नारी वर्गमाथि आदरभाव राख्नुहुन्थ्यो । हामी सगोलमा बस्दा स्वास्नीमानिसले अबेर खाना खाएको उहाँलाई मन पर्दैनथ्यो । त्यसको विरोधमा उहाँ सधैं बोल्नुहुन्थ्यो । घरमा सबै बुहारीले पढेका थिएनन् । उनीहरूलाई पनि पढ भन्नुहुन्थ्यो ।

त्यसवेला नेपालमा प्राथमिक शिक्षाअन्तर्गत शिक्षकलाई दिइनेे निर्मल स्कुलको तालिम खुल्यो । त्यो निर्मल तालिममा अमेरिकनहरूको पनि सहयोग थियो । नेपाल र अमेरिकाको संयुक्त लगानीमा त्यो तालिम सुरु गरिएको रहेछ । मलाई तालिम लिन वीरगन्ज पठाइयो । त्यसवेला पार्टीको काम पनि गर्नु पर्दैनथ्यो । वीरगन्ज पुगेपछि मैले पिंजडाबाट फुत्केको चराजस्तो स्वतन्त्र भएको अनुभव गरेँ ।

त्यताबाट फर्केर म इलाम गएँ । इलाम जाँदा पुष्पलालजी काठमाडौंमा हुनुहुन्नथ्यो । म गर्भवती पनि थिएँ । न हवाईजहाजको व्यवस्था थियो न त बसकै । वीरगन्ज र इलामको वातावरण धेरै फरक थियो । इलामबाट चाँडै र्फकनुपर्ने भएकोले मलाई अलिकति नमज्जा पनि लाग्यो । पुष्पलालजी पो मलाई लिन आउनुभएछ । हामी दुईजना मात्रै केही समयका लागि प्रकृतिसँगै हराएका थियौँ । र्फकंदा पनि हामी सँगै भयौँ । त्यो क्षण म कहिल्यै बिर्सन सक्दिनँ । त्यस्तो रमाइलो फेरि जीवनमा दोहोरिएन पनि ।

ससुरा पढेकी बुहारी भनेर मप्रति गर्व गर्नुहुन्थ्यो । साह्रै माया पनि गर्नुहुन्थ्यो । कहिलेकाहीँ उहाँ 'सहाना मलाई अंग्रेजी अलिअलि सिकाइदेऊन' भन्नुहुन्थ्यो । म पनि सिकाइदिन्थेँ ।

हामी छुट्टिएर बस्न थालेपछि पनि म ससुरालाई भेट्न हप्ताको एकपटक पुग्थेँ । जाँदा ससुरा हुक्का तान्दै बस्नुभएको हुन्थ्यो । म पुग्नासाथ सासूलाई बोलाउँदै 'ल यहाँ सहाना आइन्, लौ-लौ चकटी हालिदेऊ' भन्नुहुन्थ्यो । उहाँ मलाई एकदमै सम्मान गर्नुहुन्थ्यो ।

मेरी जेठानी हसिना भाउजू (सहिद गंगालालकी पत्नी) मलाई असाध्यै माया गर्नुहुन्थ्यो । मलाई सधैं पढ्न हौस्याउनुहुन्थ्यो ।

शिथिल पार्टी र पुष्पलाल

मैले त पार्टीको काम गर्न छोडिसकेकी थिएँ । पार्टीमाथिको बन्देज हटेको हुनाले ०१३ सालमा अर्धसरकारी जागिर खाएँ । आर्थिक कठिनाइका कारण घर चलाउन निकै गाह्रो थियो । ०१५ सालको चुनावमा पुष्पलालजी कम्युनिस्ट पार्टीबाट, गणेशमानजी कांग्रेस पार्टीबाट उठ्नुभएको थियो । पुष्पलालले चुनाव हार्नुभयो । ललितपुरबाट तुल्सीलाल अमात्यले कम्युनिस्ट पार्टीबाट चुनाव जित्नुभयो । ०१७ सालमा राजा महेन्द्रले गरेको फौजी काण्डपछि सबै पार्टीमाथि प्रतिबन्ध लाग्यो । त्यसपछि पार्टीको काम खुला रूपमा गर्न सम्भव थिएन । पुष्पलालजीसँग ०१७ सालपछि एक वर्षको दौरानमा ४/५ पटक मात्र भेट भएको थियो । पार्टीमाथि प्रतिबन्ध लागेपछि सबैतिर अस्तव्यस्त भयो ।

०१७ साल पुस १ गते बिहान । काठमाडौंको गणेशथान पुग्दा केही मान्छे आएर पुष्पलाललाई खासखुस कुरा गर्दै लिएर गए । मैले केही थाहा पाइनँ । पुष्पलालजीलाई साथीहरूले प्रशासनबाट लुकाउन लिएर गएका रहेछन् । त्यसपछि फेरि उहाँ भूमिगत बस्नुभयो । यसबीच २/३ पटक घरमा पनि आउनुभयो । घर आउनुभएको वेला एकपटक झन्डै पक्राउ पनि पर्नुभएको थियो ।

०१८ माघमा उहाँ भारत जानुभयो । म यतै व्यस्त भएँ । म महिनाको एकपटक पुष्पलालजीलाई भेट्न भारत पुग्थेँ । महिनामा ५/६ दिनमात्र सँगै बस्न पाइन्थ्यो । पुष्पलाललाई भेट्न जान्छे भनेर सरकारतर्फका मानिसमा चर्चा हुन्थ्यो । गुप्तचरहरू अघिपछि लाग्थे । यो क्रियाकलाप १५/१६ वर्ष रह्यो । भारतमा जाँदा अनेकौँ मान्छे भेट्न पनि आउँथे । बिपीलगायत अरू नेताहरूलाई पनि म भेट्न जान्थेँ । ०३३ सालमा जब राष्ट्रिय मेलमिलापको नीति लिएर बिपी नेपाल फर्के, त्यसवेला पुष्पलाललाई पनि नेपाल आउन दबाब दिइएको थियो । तर, उहाँ आउनुभएन ।

भारतमा पुष्पलालजीको बसाइ एकदमै दुःखी थियो । कोठा सुख्खा हुन्थ्यो । फोहोर पनि हुन्थ्यो । खाना पनि पर्याप्त हुँदैनथ्यो । म कहिलेकाहीँ उता पुगेको वेला कोठा सफा गरिदिन्थेँ । यता नेपाल फर्किने वेला १०/१५ दिनका लागि पुग्ने दाल-चामलको जोहो गरिदिएर आउँथेँ । कहिलेकाहीँ भारतका सिआइडी पुष्पलाललाई पैसा र अन्य सुविधा दिएर 'बिपी सानसौकतमा बसेका छन्, तिमी पनि उसैगरी बस' भनेर फकाउँथे । तर, उहाँले कहिल्यै पनि आफ्नो इमानमा सम्झौता गर्नुभएन ।

हाम्रो घरको आर्थिक अवस्था कहिल्यै सुधि्रएन । म शिक्षिका न थिएँ । धेरै वर्ष अध्यापन गरेँ । त्रिचन्द्र कलेज, पोखराको पृथ्वीनारायण क्याम्पसहरूमा लगातार पढाएँ । पद्मकन्या कलेजमा पनि १० वर्ष पढाएँ । मलाई त्यहाँबाट उँभो चढ्नुपर्छ भन्ने थिएन । यी सब भइरहेको वेला ०३२ सालको विद्यार्थी आन्दोलनलाई सघाएको आरोपमा त्यही वर्षको भदौमा मलाई जागिरबाट निष्कासित गरियो । मैले त्रिचन्द्र कलेजमा ०१८ सालदेखि पढाउन थालेकी थिएँ । मेरो जागिर पनि गएपछि त हाम्रो घरको अवस्था झनै नाजुक भयो । मैले जागिर छोड्दा त्रिविको आवासगृह पनि छोड्नुपरेको थियो । घर खाली नभएको कारणले छोराको साथीको घरमा गएर पनि बसियो । त्यसवेला आफन्तले पनि सहयोग गरेनन् । त्यसपछि मैले केही समय ट्युसन पढाएर घरको आर्थिक अवस्थाको भरथेग गरेँ ।

अन्तिम अवस्थामा पुष्पलाल

यहाँ बस्न दिक्क लागेर म बनारस लागेँ । पुष्पलालजीसँग पनि भेट्न म उता पुगेकी थिएँ । उहाँसँगै भेटघाटमा हामी आसाम, गुहाटी, लखनउ, दिल्ली आदि ठाउँ घुम्यौँ । त्यसपछि अचानक पुष्पलालजी बिरामी हुनुभयो । त्यसवेला पार्टीको स्थिति पनि राम्रो थिएन । उहाँ बिरामी भएको वेला हेर्न धेरै मानिस आए । भारतीय नेता चन्द्रशेखर पनि उहाँलाई हेर्न आए । बिस्तारै उहाँको अवस्था नाजुक भयो । मेरो जन्मदिन आउँदै थियो । भोलि बिहानै अस्पताल आउँदा पुष्पलालले 'ह्याप्पी बर्थडे सहाना' भन्नुभयो । मैले 'धन्यवाद' भनेँ । त्यसवेला मेरो आँखामा आँसु टिल्पिलाएको थियो । सायद त्यो आँसु गाला हुँदै तलतिर झर्‍यो ।

त्यसको एक हप्तापछि म बिहानै आइसियूमा पल्टिइरहेका पुष्पलाललाई भेट्न पुगेँ । उहाँको अनुहार फुंग उडेको जस्तो लाग्यो । म बेडनजिक पुग्दा उहाँका आँखा रसाएका थिए । उहाँ पीडाले हुँ-हुँ गरिरहनुभएको थियो । सास बढेको छ । अनुहार फुंग उडेको छ । मैले हेर्न सकिनँ । म पनि निकै रोएँ छु । केहीछिनपछि मलाई मात्र भित्र बोलाइयो । मलाई देख्नासाथ उहाँले अक्सिजनको मास्क झिक्नुभयो । मलाई हेर्दै स्वाँ-स्वाँको आवाजसाथ उहाँले भन्नुभयो, 'सहाना..ति..मीलाई..मैले दुःख मात्र दिएँ, ति..म्रो..निमित्त केही गर्न सकिनँ । अब... अगाडिका कामहरू पक्कै पनि...तिमीले गछ्र्यौ होला ।' सास धेरै बढ्यो, मैले हतारहतार अक्सिजन मास्क लगाइदिएँ । उहाँले बडो कष्टसँग बोलेको मैले हेर्न सकिनँ । त्यहीवेला गिरिजाप्रसादसँग ४/५ जना कांग्रेसका साथी उहाँलाई भेट्न आए । केहीबेरमा डाक्टरले 'हि इज नो मोर' भनेर घोषणा गरे । यो ०३५ साउन ७ गतेको कुरा थियो ।

त्यसै दिनदेखि म विधवा बनेँ । दागबत्ती दिन छो
रा उमेश आएका थिए । पुष्पलालजीको तेह्राँ दिनको काम सकेपछि अरू बनारसबाटै नेपाल फर्किए । म दिल्ली आएँ । दिल्लीको एक रातको बसाइपछि म नेपाल फर्किएँ । त्यसपछि म कहिल्यै फर्केर बनारस गइनँ । Read more...
