Kathmandu, 14 October 2017 — Eyes opened as usual at 5 am, hugged her, pressed and stepped up to Kitchen for warm water. I found an old diary and ripped on floor in Kitchen, picked up, put on table.

Kathmandu, 20 September 2017 — “Does it like asking coffee using e-mail!”, said my senior at middle of the trip from Kathmandu to Darchula in 2007 when there was not landline phone or mobile except CDMA phone.

He immediately said, “Yes, I know that it’s necessary and should grow the company well with good initiative and projects. Yes.
