I was sitting for a meeting when ground started to shake. I was 7 when the last time Kathmandu was hit with a big one. My grandmother running to our backyard carrying me is the only memory I have of that incident. This was something out of a Hollywood movie. The ground stared to shake […]Read More Shaking , But not SHAKEN.
I was sitting selling iWrapz: a crappy product made to rip off rich and poor Americans with a lot of plastic money, at a famous mall in Arlington, Texas. This is what I did for a living to support myself financially. A middle-aged lady walked up to me and started browsing the products. She took […]Read More The world is full of Mass Murderers …and we love them all.
When people call my country ‘poor’ it really does rub me the wrong way. I realized how materialistically poor we really were after having lived 8 long years in a country that consumed like barbarians on a fresh kill.

A man is not a man, Unless he has been humiliated. Stripped off his pride, Feeling next to nothing, […]Read More From darkness to Light
“Ghamanda garnu parcha tara kun chij ko garne bujnu parcha” . I feel that way about this one particular guy. My old science teacher , Pradhan Mam’ , used to say “ Nakal karne k liye akkal chaiye”. I have a shadow, ladies and gentleman. At least the one that I am aware of. This […]Read More My shadow
Education I studied in Loyola School Kathmandu. And I credit a lot of what I am capable of today to my teachers then. But I distinctly remember how they taught in the same old punish, push and enforce strategy. Though they laid a strong foundation to a lot of the basics you need in life […]Read More Educatindustry?
Why does shit only happen to me? I really do feel this way. The most unnecessary and idiotic mishaps tend to find me on a regular basis. In this baking heat I am trying to run a kitchen and a coffee shop at the same time trying to send my customers off with a smile. […]Read More If you don’t read “Patrika” – you’re DOOMED!
I write this today because I feel like I need to. And I want to share things I have learnt in the last 6 months because I believe it will help someone out there in some random way (Wishful Thinking). It’s been exactly Six month since I bought Coffee Point from its previous owners. I […]Read More Coffee ain’t Fancy
