Safal Bastola: “We should forget the past and move on to a new beginning”

Village School Building

Pink Wall at Shree Mahankal Secondary School

I was at my home in Pokhara when it happened. It was scary and I felt like the world was coming to an end. Everything around me seemed different. It was also a near death experience for me. Though Pokhara wasn’t so much affected, it was pretty frightening when people talked about the casualties all over the nation. I was worried sick for my relatives and friends out there in the affected regions. Personally for me there was no big loss, but still I mourned for all the victims.

Since the quake, I think differently about this world and my existence in it. Life is too valuable to waste doing the things we don’t desire. We should be grateful for everything we have, and for having survived the quake. We should forget the past and move on to a new beginning. We should all lend a hand in rebuilding our beautiful nation. We should contribute at least something and hope that such a disaster will never happen again to our country.
