The Busiest Dad


He might be one of the busiest men around. His cellphone keeps ringing from early hours till he retires and It often annoys/disturbs us. Mom always complain about it and we in a humorous way suggest him to appoint a private assistant to manage his phone calls and look after his hectic schedule. Ha Ha Ha..Though He’s just another head of a soaring lower-middle class, He’s actually no less busier than those of high ranked white collar job-holders. After having been assigned recently to another duty along with the old one and involvement on several social organizations, he now has more hectic work schedule. Now I think, He could have earned millions more Had he been involved into fraud and corruption and irregularities. But He always maintained a clean and good image and kept himself away off those immoralities. I’m not being blind to him just because he’s my father but a fair analysis  about a person, who  toils at his duty for sake of his people and society. Do u find it excessive?

A 52 years-old bloke, with fairer skin and a moderate height; he weighs more than 65 Kg, I presume. He seldom has enough hours to spend with us, for he’s always busy even on holidays. I’ve barely seen him enjoying  weekend at home with  family.

He passed I.A. in around 2035 B.S, but never graduated. English paper hindered his graduation from being accomplished.

  

Now, He’s mulling over taking a voluntary retirement from his nearly 30-years long civil service. The government has recently announced a voluntary retirement package for its civil servants who already have served more than 30 years in office and are now 50+ with a reward of handsome purse. Firstly, I didn’t want him take such retirement. But later, thought now Its time  for him to retire and take rest. Dinesh Dai is already involved in a good job and I’m too going to graduate soon. Some two millions of rupees, all he could get from the retirement along with his pension intact for his lifetime. He’s been thinking to invest the amount to assist on buying a piece of land somewhere, where as Dinesh Dai has expressed his mind on saving it to a bank. Do they listen to me If I propose to invest that 2 million rupees on a business ? I think NO. They fear of bankrupt in business. No one in our Khanal family (?) has dared to venture into it yet. But I’ve always loved and advocated starting a business. Business makes yourself  a boss. You have your own world where you rule others. 😀  You could get prosperity far sooner with it than any other works,jobs. But It needs a great degree of experience, patience, knowledge, courage, investment and tactics and cunning too. You agree?

He’s been a great dad. Need I elaborate more?  Everyone love their parents, so do I.

I must say : One of very few things I could feel proud on is, his  devotion to his work, people and society and his clean and good image. We’re really inspired by his deeds. He lives more for his society than family.  



Ridiculous

Cries over the alleged slaughter of a college girl in Kathmandu has rattled the media for some days. I don’t know why her alleged death has gained so much media hype and attention. Just because she’s from a affluent family and smart and beautiful girl ? Hundreds of people die piteous deaths cos of hunger and shortage of even a Sitamol in rural areas throughout the year, but they never make any such big news and hype in media. What’s it ? Just because they live in penury and have no influence in national life ? The media and people’s cry over the girl’s death is just ridiculous. More humanitarian and appalling crises in rural and marginalized community are rampant within our country not too far from Kathmandu, some are within its vicinity. Alas! But they are never heard. They never make any such big news in Kathmandu-based elite medias. 

We already have witnessed more shocking and heinous deaths than this girl’s during the decade long Maoists insurgency. Nothing to be shocked at  her alleged death. Cry over it is just a sheer ridiculousness. If you can, cry over those people surviving in acute penury and who often die cos of lack of single dose of Sitamol in Nepal.
