Editorial Welcome to the 2011 issue of SANGALO ! As we enter our 11th year since its first launch, I, on behalf of SANGALO and entire Nepal Center of North Carolina (NCNC), would like to express my gratitude to you for your support throughout the preparation of SANGALO and other activities of NCNC. SANGALO means “collection.� As its name implies, this is a compilation of essays, stories, poems, songs, and such as written and submitted by the NCNC members and well-wishers. As in the past issues, we have separated this issue into two sections, Nepali and English. Both sections include stories, songs, poems,and essays. I hope SANGALO will help us to strive to better achieve various goals of NCNC. Our ethos remains unchanged - to preserve the cultural heritage, traditions and customs of Nepal. This is done by promoting Nepalese art, literature, music, and dances. In addition, NCNC seeks to provide networking opportunities for NCNC members and others and to extend helping hand to Nepal and the Nepalese around the world in any way possible. I would like to express my sincere appreciation and thanks to Dr. Narayan Rajbhandari, Dr. Jaya Raj Joshi, and Mr. Shiva Sharma for their valuable role in putting together this issue of SANGALO. I could not have done it without their help. Also I would like to thank all the authors for their valuable creations for this issue of SANGALO. Please be aware that there may be minor glitches as we work with this new layout. So, I apologize in advance for any errors.

Thank you, as always, for your generous support. Best Regards, Shailendra Devkota Chief Editor, SANGALO

President's Message Dear community members, friends and well wishers of NCNC: It has been an exciting couple of years, and serving this community has been an absolute privilege. From the bottom of our heart we appreciate your support. Thank you all for lending a helping hand in difficulty, for sharing your hearts at our needs, and for your kind and encouraging words all along. Without your help, we would have accomplished nothing. I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that we fulfilled many of the promises we made at the beginning of our term. From participating in an international festival and showcasing our food and culture to braving the sun to man NCNC booth at the Spring Daze Festival, we did our best to give the North Carolinians a glimpse into Nepali identity and heritage. 'The Nepali language school for kids' has been a highlight of our term, and, once again, thanks to all the vol-

unteers, we have now successfully completed multiple semesters. We also invited the renowned yogi Dr. Chinta Mani to help conduct a summer camp for kids. Last but not the least, we have come a long way in realizing our goal of having a community center of our own. As we approach the end of our two-year term, I would like to thank each and every one of you -- members and non-members alike -in responding to our call for help, in whatever way possible. I would also like to congratulate our executive team for the job well done, and making me look good. Let’s hope the incoming team will come up with even newer and better ideas to help lift NCNC to newer heights, and I urge you to extend your help in all manners possible. Thank you. Yours Truly, Arun Dhital President, NCNC

Our Khusi: She teaches us to appreciate the little things in our lives! Mohan Adhikari ultrasound tests, they rushed Amrita to the operating room for a c-section to save lives of both of them. At 8:40 PM, they delivered Khusi. When Khusi was delivered, she was almost lifeless as she was not able to breathe and cry on her own. The neonatologists rushed her to an incubator and began artificial breathing for her. I was really nervous when I saw doctors and nurses running with great sense of urgency while taking Khusi towards Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). When one of the nurses showed Khusi to me for the first time, she was well within the Nurse’s one palm. I felt like my head was about to burst and I lost all of my sense for a moment.

On July 7th 2009, I found out that we were expecting our first child. We were so excited yet nervous. Little did we know that this pregnancy would change our lives and test our strength and love in ways that most people never experience in their lifetime! As the days and weeks of the pregnancy passed, we began preparing for the birth of our child. In October, we learned that we were expecting a baby girl. It was a cloudy day on Nov 22nd. I and my wife, Amrita, spent the whole day to finalize her name to be Khusi from the long list of names that we had shortlisted for the previous few months. In the afternoon, Amrita started to feel some chest pain so we went to see her gynecologist. Amrita was 24 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Her doctor checked her blood pressure and it was dangerously high. The doctor decided to admit her to the University of North Carolina Hospitals until they could get her blood pressure down. Her blood pressure continued to rise and her hands, legs, and face started swelling. After several tests, they determined that she was developing preeclampsia. She was then transferred to another unit which comprised of one of world’s leading doctors that specialized in preeclampsia. Immediately, they decided that she would have to remain hospitalized until our daughter Khusi was born.

Khusi was only 24 weeks and 5 days gestational age when she was born. She weighed 1 lb 2 oz (530 grams) at birth and was 11 inches long. To put it in prospective, she was so small that I could literally hold her on my one palm and we were able to fit my wedding ring around her wrist. The doctors at NICU warned us that she would have a honeymoon period where she would do good for a brief period of time and then start doing worse. She then lost her weight after a day of her birth and weighed less than a pound (15.8 oz or 475 grams). Doctors had given us about 10% chance that she would survive at birth and then another 15% chance that she would survive the next 72 hours after birth. She was put on a ventilator for her breathing immediately after birth and she received 4 blood transfusions within the first 48 hours of her life in this world.

Currently, there is no medication to treat preeclampsia. The only way to stop progression of this disease is to deliver the baby right away to save the baby as well the mother. They told us that they would wait as long as possible to deliver the baby but we had to be prepared for our daughter to be delivered at any time from that point onwards. I felt the load of universe on me as Khusi was not even 25 weeks old in the womb. I along with my wife could not stop crying.

It is impossible for me to describe in writing the pain I felt while watching her being poked many times a day with the needles that were as big as her fingers. If I were to count how many blood transfusions she received in hospital throughout her stay, the number would be well over one hundred. She was very sensitive to sound, noise and touch. We had to be very careful even to touch her because even our gentle touch would cause her a severe pain. It was even more painful for me not to touch her and hold her in my arms.

Doctors were able to keep Amrita and Khusi safe for next two and half days with the help of medication in the hospital. In the afternoon of November 25th, Khusi started showing signs of stress from preeclampsia. That afternoon, after hours of watching her heart rate and doing several

biggest milestone for her survival but still she would barely open her eyes. And her crying was out of the control, as a ventilator tube was inserted through her mouth and a feeding tube was inserted into her stomach through her nose. I had to wait several minutes (sometimes hours) just to see her moving. Sense of her being alive would give me an immense pleasure while watching her, and at the mean time, my ears were dying to hear her cry even once.

After seemingly really long 156 days of NICU stay, doctors gave us a choice to take her home with oxygen or keep her in the hospital until she could sustain her breathing by her own. My wife and I were ready to do anything possible within our reach to take Khusi home. So, we quickly made the decision to bring Khusi home. And, Khusi finally came home on the 156th days of stay at Hospital NICU. There was immense happiness to see her in her own home but the tasks to maintain her oxygen supply 24 hours a day, monitor her heartbeat, oxygen saturation, and respiration rate in the monitor for 24/7 were not easy. Seeing her all wired up to the monitors and oxygen cylinders 24/7 was still very painful. Nevertheless, she was at home with us. Beeps and alarms of those monitors would keep us awake throughout the night for many nights. The level of anxiety was high. God heard our and all of our well wishers’ prayers and Khusi responded to the home environment very positively and continued to make rapid progress. We were made aware by the doctors that Khusi may need the oxygen support at home for a prolong period of time, possibly for years. So, we were mentally and physically ready for this but, fortunately, after ten and half months, Khusi was able to breathe on her own, which was like winning a war for us.

She made it through the first week and then she developed pneumonia and a staph infection. Her lungs were very immature so the pneumonia did a lot of damage to her lungs as did the ventilator. Over the next few weeks, the damage to her lungs from the ventilator started getting worse. She now has chronic lung disease from the ventilator but doctors kept assuring us that it is something that will get better over time. It had been 30 days since Khusi was on ventilator. Ventilator was a life saver, but at the same time, it was damaging her lungs every minutes. So, doctors tried to switch her to Nasal cannula, but she failed several times and had to be put right back on the ventilator. When Khusi was 30 days old, her weight was only 2 lbs (960 grams) which is still critical for survival. She was straggling to gain weight for so long. I would check her weight graph every day and see her gaining weight into teen digit grams and some day even losing. Any time she would gain an oz (30 grams) on any given day that would make my day.

From this tragic experience, one thing I learned was not to take anything for granted, not even a single thing. Knowing that she has gone through more things in her life in less than a year than many people will go through in their entire lifetime, makes us very grateful. The simplest things like giving her a bath, changing her diapers, hearing her cry, staying awake at night all are sometimes stressful or unpleasant for some new parents but for me and my wife those things have given us great joy. Her cry does not bother us as we were dying to hear it for so long. Getting up several times at night for her feeding and care is not out of normal for us as we used to stay up all night long watching her breathing, adjusting her to oxygen supply, and monitoring her heart beat in the monitor. Taking Khusi to hospital or doctor’s office couple of times in a week is nothing for us as the hospital NICU unit was our second home for five and half months. When Khusi looks into my eyes and smiles showing her tiny teeth, I forget all the heartaches that I endured. When Khusi calls me “Ba…b..ba”, her one word is worth million times more to me than the whole tragic event that I went through. As of this writing, Khusi is 16 months old and weighs about 23 lbs. We are so proud of our “Miracle Baby.” I love her to death. Khusi means a whole world to me and my whole world revolves around her.

Khusi also developed retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and required surgery when she was less than two and half months old to save her eyes from possible blindness in the future. Performing surgery on a 3 lb baby, who is breathing through Ventilator and eating through feeding tube, was not an easy task. After a month after her first surgery, she needed another surgery for ROP. All the doctors, nurses and other people in the hospital would call her a “Miracle Baby”. And her name “Khusi” was a well known name in the entire NICU at UNC. After 52 days, Khusi was able to come off of the ventilator. This was her critical milestone. Now that the ventilator tube was out of her mouth and throat so I could hear her cry loud and clear. When she cried for the first time after 52 days of her birth, I too cried along with her for so long. After this point, we were more hopeful that Khusi will be able to go to her own home one day soon. But we still did not know when that day would be. With two steps forward and one step backward, Khusi made a steady progress from that point on.

“I am” Yasmine Sinkhada I am a melody that has never ending tune. My own rhythm. My own beat.

Tomorrow’s healer and savior. I am Yasmine.

I sway through the souls and hearts of my loved ones Leaving a trace of passion and happiness behind.

Oh god! Will you be my guide? Lead my ways And be there by my side?

I am the change. The change that inspires others to live and to enjoy every moment of their lives

I have never felt so strong Never felt so weak, With you beside me I can reach the highest peak.

I am a stranger. A stranger to the world that is sometimes judgmental Yet, I will still keep fighting, till I am known.

You are my soul. You are my life. Without you, I do not know where I would reside.

I am in search of the light The light that shines down on me The light that brings faith and hope into my life.

You are there when I laugh, You are there when I cry. I will never let you go of you, Not ever in a blink of an eye.

A life which is a secret But, yet to be revealed.

I walk on the vacant roads, Knowing that you are looking down on me. Never feared of going the wrong direction, Because you were there leading me towards the right way.

I am a reflection. Reflection of my complicated past. But willing to forgive and forget. I am the future.

I knew that the word Upanayana means bringing near. The child is bought near to the Guru. This Sanskar is second birth for child - a spiritual birth. This Sanskar is performed during six to nine years of child but due to various problems, my parents managed it a couple of years later for me. I also participated in my Vedarambha Sanskar along with Upanayan.

I worshiped different Hindu gods and offered them Tika, flowers, yoghourt, coins etc. Though I was excited to participate in the program and performed pooja, it was not so easy task not eat anything till two o’clock and stay four hours in the same place. I did it and I am proud with my parents who managed it for me, I am also thankful to all who gave to Bhiksha and beautiful gifts to me.

How I got my Puppy Samrachan Ojha picture of the puppy to my dad. He looked at the price and told my mom to call the dog owners. When my mom called the owners, she found out that there were 20 other people waiting in line to get the puppy!!! I felt like the world was going to end and I was not going to get that puppy. But to my surprise, we were on our way to get the puppy. It took us about an hour to get there. We got the puppy and, while we were at the car driving home, I could not stop looking at her. We decided to call her Jessie. Now I have to take care of her. It takes a great responsibility but it is worth it. Finally, I can say that I have a pet.

First of all, I would like to say that my dad did not like my “owning a pet” idea and neither did my mom. The reason that I wanted a pet was because my neighbors had one and I thought that is was fascinating and fun to have a pet. So, I started off simple with a pet hamster. My dad said maybe to the idea of my having a hamster but my mother was too afraid of rodents and reptiles. I tried begging and pleading with them but my parents were hard to convince. After a lot of commotion, I went for a ferret. I read articles on how ferrets are great pets. But the answer to my request to even have a ferret was a simple ‘no’. After all that commotion, one day I was in my room with my dad and little brother. We were watching the movie “The Dog Whisperer.” While watching this movie, an Idea hit my like a lightning bolt. I thought I could get a puppy instead. I asked my dad about it and he said that it was okay. So, I looked up on the internet without much luck. The dogs available on the Internet were too expensive. After a long search, I found one -a Pomeranian Yorkie mix puppy. She looked so cute! I showed the

After getting a little puppy, I have to clean up after her by cleaning up her messes. I take her to evening walks and she loves it. Every day, when I come home from school, she greets me every time by giving me lots of kisses. She is my little sister.

Nepali Family Traditions Swikriti Sapkota Apex, North Carolina What is tradition? According to the dictionary, tradition is the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation, esp. by word of mouth or by practice. Tradition is something that every country, tribe, etc is rich in. One of the countries that is richest in tradition is Nepal. Although vast, tradition is very important in Nepali families. Tradition is the root and core of all families in Nepal.

riages can create are issues such as the husband and wife having different interests and beliefs. This can create a rift in their relationship. This tradition also has many good points to it. For example, the bride or groom will have an easier time adjusting in their new life with their spouse since they are from the same social status, caste, education, etc. Also, the elders in the family have more experience in life and in judging people. This means that the person they pick out for you is a person they think has good beliefs and values.

One of the most important traditions of Nepali families is that the core of the family is based on patriarchal beliefs. In Nepali families, it is believed that the male figure in the house should make most of the important decisions. Also, the male figure is deemed to be more important than women. Although very rare in the cities and other areas where people are well educated, village families of Nepal still prefer a baby boy to be born in their house rather than a girl. This particular tradition has had much influence in my life. For example, when I have to make important decisions or even leave the house to meet my friends, I have to ask my father for what he wants me to do. This tradition has also made me respect men more because they are portrayed as more responsible and hardworking. The issue of village families wanting a boy saddens me because being a girl myself, I think of all the little girls that are resented because their parents or grandparents wanted a boy.

One tradition in Nepali families I respect more than others is the tradition that the kids take care of their parents in their old age. In Nepal, it is of the uttermost importance that the kids take care of their parents at old age. It is a character that every responsible and well mannered person has in Nepal. Western traditions such as the parents living separate from the kids is frowned upon. I respect this tradition very much because I believe that taking care of parents is the least you can do for them after they provide you a house to live in, food, and a good education. Last but not least, another important tradition that Nepal is centered around is hospitality. Guests in Nepal are considered to be as important as god, and are therefore taken care of in the most extravagant manner. Guests are always offered food and not permitted to help with preparation or cleanup. Also, only the right hand is used to offer food to guests. Overall, these are only a few traditions among many, which Nepali families have. The above four are only a couple within a culture as vast as the oceans.

Another tradition that most Nepali families generally hold is their belief in arranged marriages. When the child is of marriageable age, the elders in the house are responsible to find a suitable person for their kids to marry. The person chosen by the elders to marry their kids are usually of the same caste, social status, and education. Personally, I don’t agree with this belief because even thought almost all of arranged marriages are successful, there are many threats to marrying people you aren’t very familiar with. Some of the problems arranged mar-

The Big Storm Ayushma Sharma, 4th grade student Cedar Fork Elementary School, Morrisville, NC

Jessica Zinglebert, a small cute girl, was playing peacefully outside when huge stormy gray clouds created above her head. The little cutie hurried inside as a big gust of wind blew leaves off trees, and then all of a sudden it started to pour. She quickly scurried in to the living room and asked her very tall and slim dad (who is a.k.a. a couch potato),“is a storm heading our way?” He answered in a deep voice, “Ya, it looks like its going to be big, and there might be a couple tornadoes.” The word ‘tornadoes’ got the cute little Jessica going. She leaped to the remote and turned the TV on to ABC 11 eyewitness news. And, there the weather man, George, said that there was a large tornado heading its way in to the center of Morrisville right where the one and only little cutie Jessica Zinglebert lived!

Inside the shelter, the family of five got greeted by a couple of their very nice neighbors, little dogs and cats, two doctors and four policemen. They all told them that they were glad to see them alive. Jessica saw a couple of tears forming in her dad’s eyes (she knew why), and then she saw that her mom started to tear up (probably the same reason). So, her two cute twin sisters started crying their little baby heads off. Then Jessica too started crying as poor little Jessica couldn’t help it when people started crying especially in a moment like this. The other people in the room also got going, and in a couple of fast minutes, they had a cozy shelter full of crying people. Then all of a sudden the 23 people (not including the cats and dogs) heard a loud bang boos bop bigidibang and some loud and unpleasant screaming.

Everybody in little Jessica’s family including her two cute sisters, Emily Zinglebert (the clever one) and Podia Zinglebert (the cute one), were scared and worried. Outside tornado warning sirens started beeping and screaming like police sirens. The Zinglebert family, and probably all of the other families that lived in Morrisville, got a notification call from the police regarding the humongous twister heading their way. Her dad, Philip Moocow Zinglebert, got about 100 calls from family and friends. Practically, all of them were asking if they were safe and if they were at a shelter. Philip (Jessica’s and the twins’ dad) answered, “We are on our way to the shelter and I hope we are safe.”

The four policemen told all of the generous people to crouch by the wall with their hands on their heads, just in case the roof flew away. Jessica’s family and a puppy for some reason gathered up in a circle and did what the officers told them to do. Jessica got really scared and then just like that in a loud thud the roof of the shelter flew off even when the shelter was underground. The policemen were smart enough to bring a couple extra roofs and the tools in order to put it back on.

Then in a distance Jessica’s frightened mom Amy Moocow Zinglebert, who saw a big black blob getting closer and closer, in a trembling voice yelled TWISTER!. Jessica’s dad told them the plan and then they took off. The cute girl’s daddy was carrying Jessica’s two cute sisters and her mom was holding Jessica’s hands. In her moms left hand was Jessica’s hand and in her right hand was a big bag full of valuable stuff like jewelry, passports, birth certificates, insurance papers and even a portable laptop. The Zinglebert family kept on running until they finally reached the old but safe shelter. They all ran in and shut the door tight.

WIP_1.indd 27

After that was done, the men said that all of the people could now sit down properly instead of sitting with your hands on your head. A lot of people were so glad when they said that. Jessica was also very happy that her mom packed a deck of cards because Jessica was getting awfully bored. So, they spent an hour or two playing cards. Then, the police officers said that the storm was over and that they could return to their homes if they wanted to. The Zingleberts were the last ones out.

After they walked home, they saw that their house was totally destroyed. Jessica’s mom started crying again and her dad got teary. “Oh no,” she said as she took a better look at their house. Jessica said, “I bet my room and my stuff is probably destroyed.” Jessica’s mom said “It’s OK, Sweetie. I bet we will find an even better room and even better toys” in a “I am not sure” voice. Then, a fireman came up to them and told them that they were going to have to find somewhere else to live for at least two weeks while they tried to clean the mess up. Jessica’s dad said OK in a gloomy voice. He then asked if he could give them a list of shelter names. The fireman handed them a list saying good luck to them. Then the firemen went on to the next person. While they were deciding what shelter to go

to, a couple of their neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Sikowits, the Danny twins, and Ms. Lookalike came up to them and asked if they would like to go to a shelter together and stay together? Jessica’s dad said sure thinking what else do they have? So, they decided to go to the one closest to their neighborhood. They walked and walked till they reached the shelter. Jessica told her mom that her feet are really soar and her mom just asked her to be quiet and just walk. Jessica decided not to argue with her mom on that. This story is to be continued in the next Sangalo. So, if you want to read more about Jessica Zinglebert and how she deals with the tragedy, then get the next Sangallo and look for The Big Storm: Part 2.

My First Dance Performance Sambriddhi Sapkota I used to think that I would never perform a dance in front of other people. But now, I know that dance is fun and exciting.

On the day of the Nepali New Year Festival, I was ready to dance but I was a little nervous. When it was my groups turn to dance, I walked to the stage with my heart beating really fast. As we started dancing, I felt better and I gave lots of energy and I didn’t forget to smile. We got a lot of applauses, and I felt proud of myself for overcoming my fear and that I got to dance really well like Ayushma and Srisa. I feel really happy that I got to dance at the Nepali New Year Festival with my best friends!

On the first day of practice, Ayushma, Srisa, and I began to learn some of the steps to our song. We were dancing to the song “Maitighar.” Maitighar is a patriotic song that explains many things about Nepal. At the first practice, I wasn’t very good at dancing, and I didn’t know how to do some of the steps. Luckily, I had my sister who was teaching the dance and also taught me how to do the steps that were confusing. We practiced a lot and in each practice, I got better and better.

Wellness -Jasmine Sinkhada There are various components that make up a wellness of human being. Wellness consists of a diverse seven dimensions of health in a wellness wheel: physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, occupational, and environmental. A person cannot have one without the other, because each of these categories pertains to one another. A truly healthy person is aware of and actively involved in all of these seven dimensions listed above. Not only do they know about them, but also they fulfill them in their everyday lives. Establishing a well balance among all seven dimensions will constitute the well being of human body.

teering, sometimes I am not able to get essential amount of sleep that I should be getting. The effects of the deprivation of sleep are horrifying and correspond with our alertness and reaction to people in different situations. Just like a car needs gasoline in order to run efficiently, human body needs sleep in order to be fully energized. All of these small contributing factors lead up to my physical state and help me become physically active. Interpersonal wellness is an important part of the seven dimensions of health. Social health is your personal ability to interact effectively with other people in a communal environment. I believe that without interacting well with others, you will never get to know how they are as a person. Being social with family, friends, and community will help us build long-lasting and meaningful relationships in life, because we have an immense emphasis over the society that we live in today.

One of the components of health is physical health. Physical health is defined as the state of being physically active. While there are days when I prioritize everything else over physical activities, I would still consider myself a very active person. Dancing, running, swimming, performing yoga, and playing soccer and volleyball are some of my favorite activities. I have been dancing for as long as I can remember. The vivid movements that are involved in making the connection to the rituals of life are very inspiring to me. Although physical activities make up most of the percentage of physical health, there are many more components that are involved in being physically inclined. The other factors of physical health that leads you to become physically active are getting the right amount of sleep to function well throughout the day, providing yourself with a well-balanced diet, and managing your weight. I do not score fully very well with all of these categories and feel that I can do a lot more to benefit my health in this aspect. However, since I am a vegetarian, sometimes I lack the essential amount of protein that I should be getting from meat. I substitute my intake of proteins with options from dairy products, tofu, beans, and nuts, but sometimes I just don’t keep up with how much I ate. Having a well balanced diet of grains, vegetables, meats, beans, fruits, and milk is essential in a food pattern. Another largely contributing factor is managing your weight by effectively choosing the right kind of food for you daily eat. Most of the time, I eat very healthy food and believe that I am in a good shape. I could definitely fit some more exercise into my routine every now and then, but overall, my physical fitness is well in this category. With school, projects, homework, family functions, and volun-

There are troughs and high-peaks in life, but my family and friends have always supported me in every part of life. They have always motivated me to be a better person and accepted me for who I am. Being a social person has helped me build remarkable relationships in life. Friendship is like an old photo album; the more you look at it, the more you want those old times to come back. Just the thought of my friends and family gives me strength to face every trial and tribulation in life. Sometimes people build barriers which prevent them from being able to be social. Nevertheless, I think that socializing with others helps you acknowledge similarities and differences that you share in common with others, adapt to the differences in opinions, relieve stresses, and become more conveyed to share your thoughts and feelings. While sometimes socializing can be overdone, it is an effective basis of communication. Emotional wellness has a meaningful connection with interpersonal wellness because relationships have an enormous impact on how we live our lives. Everyone on the face of this earth is different. We come from different places, have been through different situations, and live our lives differently from one another. There are so many downs in life, but our state of holding strong and devotedly fighting for the right thing will always paramount. For me, I have always felt that my past plays a huge role in my life- in positive and negative ways. There

person never works hard, and never tries to succeed, they will never amount to anything. I have always tried my hardest and do my best. Sometimes when I am not most pleased with my results, I resort back to my effort as the foundation that I built my knowledge and understanding on. If I behold common sense while trying to explain an answer, even if the answer I explained was incorrect, my intellectual health was then built up because it sparked my knowledge. The only way you can truly master something is if you first teach it. To add, creativity is another of the commonly used tools in intellectual health. An intellectually healthy person will only be proven intellectual if they can prove it through the character.

By examining the symptoms of emotional health, one could tell why a person’s relationship is failing. The solution to this problem would be optimism. Also, working on new hobbies or activities that take your mind off of things also help in this situation. For instance, writing has been my escape from the flustering emotions that life challenges us with. It is a part of me as the earth is of the universe. By working more to improve yourself as a person and surrounding yourself with positive people, you will be encouraged to be positive as well. Overall, I have healthy relationships with people. There are times when I may feel down, but surrounding myself with positive people has always helped me become optimistic about situations. My main goal in life has always been to be truly in contentment with myself. Life is limited, but happiness can be eternal so, I try to live every moment to the best.

Although not discussed very often, occupational health is the promotion and maintenance of physical, mental, and social well-being of workers in all occupations. In short, this means to be responsible in the work area. Even though I am still indecisive about my career choice of becoming a pediatrician, I know that I want to be in the work force area where I am able to help people in need. Being occupationally healthy means being able to establish good working skills around large amounts of people not matter the situation. My long term career goal is to successfully become a pediatrician, then go to third world countries in order to help every person I can in these vast places. I have always pictured myself in the future as sitting beside helpless kids, being their support. This is my long-term goal in life -- to help people all over the world. I believe that with strong worth ethic, dedication, commitment and desire to, I will be able to reach this goal.

Spiritual health does not require someone to be completely dedicated to a particular religion or philosophy, but it is focused more so upon the belief that there is a greater force or a power than themselves. The best gift I have ever received is the gift of life; without being alive today, I would not have met the people I know today or got to experience the wonderful events I have experienced in my lifetime. Some of the best things in life have been gifted to me without any hesitant and this selfless love from God has built a deep reassurance in my life. There have been plenty of mistakes, but a new beginning always awaited my arrival and left me with a smile. His love and compassion for us has always been my strength. I am a very spiritually healthy person. My family and I have at least one ‘Bhajan night’ with some members of the Nepalese Community. I have always believed that the relationship with God is the most important thing in life and my goal is to live the life that God has gifted me to the fullest. Tomorrow is unknown and unseen; there is no saying to when life will change. What you have today may not be there tomorrow and because of this, my principle has been to attempt to live a lifetime in each moment. With God beside me in every step I take, I have balanced myself to find the true meaning of happiness as it relates to my life.

Environment health deals primarily with saving the earth. Recycling, carpooling or helping out with cleaning projects are some of the factors that play a huge role in this dimension. Since my mother always encourages me to recycle, re-use, and volunteer for environment cleaning projects, I would consider myself to be very successful in this dimension. The city I live with my family is involved in a recycling program where every two weeks, the Town of Fuquay-Varina comes to collect all of our recycling materials. There are several benefits in this recycling plan; it promotes the need to recycle, sets good habits for the next generation, and encourages the need for a clean environment. I believe that caring for our Earth is very important. The earth is our home and if we do not cherish and respect where we are today, it may be too late to realize tomorrow. In conclusion, the seven dimensions of health taught me different ways that heath can relate to us in our world today. Although each of the seven

Intellectual health is often thought of as an idea involving knowledge; however, it also entails creativity and common sense. A person’s intellectual health is only going to go far as they push it to. If a

dimensions is different, they all correspond to each other in a unique and specific ways which together make up the world around us. Of all the seven dimensions, there are a few things I struggle within each one. I may not be a perfectly healthy person accord-

ing to the continuum, but I am constantly working to achieve my best sate of health. As mentioned earlier, establishing a well balance between all seven dimensions will constitute to the wellbeing of a human body. Make sure you are well balanced as well!

The Art of Living (Some simple suggestions to my son to survive in the society & for spending successful life)

1fgL u'0fL JolQm lgx'l/G5 lg/Gt/, kmn]s ] f] a[Ifsf] xf“uf] gem'ss ] f] sxf“ 5 /< –slj lz/f]dl0f n]vgfy kf}8o\ fn

Binod Dhakal, Cary Babu, Aditya! No matter how much we earn, no matter how much we have in the bank, no matter how nice our clothing, cars or houses, none of it will make us happier. Moreover the sad thing is that it could take us decades of pursuing wealth and luxury items before we realize this. Unluckily, Life is like a coin, we can spend it anyway we wish, but we can only spend it once. Then, you may ask, what is the art of living and what will bring happiness to us? Well, there are few things and ideas, which help us to live happily. These some of the things have been proven by research on people about what they have, what their lives are like, and how happy they are. The happiest people didn't necessarily have the best of everything; they just made the most of everything that came along their way. You can also develop some of the qualities by reading and applying them in your life. Keep in mind that everyone needs to leave the world one day, but one’s qualities and contributions to the society make him/her memorable forever. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life in such a way, when you leave the world, you will be the one smiling and everyone around you will be crying,“The art of living is also the art of dying”- Goenka.

That’s why, take time to spend with your loved ones, to tell them what they mean to you, to listen to them, and develop your relationship with them. Be integrated with family and be a part of the society; you know the hair is beautiful only when it is on the head as soon as the hair is dropped it becomes dirt. Help friends when needed if you can, if you cannot, say sorry to them. To maintain good relationship, it is not necessary that you have to say always “yes” to everyone. You also need to learn to say ‘no’. “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody”.-Bill Cosby. Promise only what you can deliver. Then deliver more than you promise. Sometimes spend your dollar for others, buying a sandwich in $5 dollar to the needy one gives you much satisfaction than buying for yourself. Do not forget saying thank you and please, hi and bye, though you know it is just formality. Never discriminate friends in a group as my mother tells me in Nepali: xf/df df/ gug'{ . 2) Positive thinking: Beauty lies on eyes, things are as they are and as created by nature, it is our vision to make bad or good: /fd|f] jf g/fd|f] agfpg] t b[li6n]

My son! You did not get the same environment what I got in my childhood and you also missed the lessons of life from your grandparents. I am transferring the same knowledge to you what I learned with my parents, from the books and experiences of myself. The following things will help you to be happy and lead successful life.

xf], ;[li6n] xf]Og .

Positive thinking is the best way to achieve the goals; it can also lead to happiness. Optimism and self-esteem are some of the best indicators of people who lead happy lives. Happy people feel empowered, in control of their lives, and have a positive outlook on life. So, make positive thinking a habit. Get into the habit of squashing all negative thoughts and replacing them with positive one. Have attitude, the cup is half full than half empty. When life gives you hun-

1) Good relationship: We have a human need to be close, to be intimate with other human beings. Having good, supportive friendships, a strong marriage or close and loving relationships with our family members will make us much more likely to be happy.

dreds reasons to cry, life also shows that you have thousands reasons to smile. To quote the Buddha: "If with a pure heart you speak or act, then happiness follows you as a shadow that never departs”. What goes around comes around. Someone might be mean to you, but the bad feelings will find its way back to them. Write any worries or negative feelings on a slip of paper, then tear it up and throw it away. You'll feel relieved, and as if you really have thrown your worries in the bin. Think of your faults in the first part of the night when you are awake, and the faults of others in the latter part of the night when you are asleep as Chinese proverb says. Focus on the present; leave the past in the past, nothing lasts. Nothing good lasts, so enjoy it while it's here. Nothing bad lasts, so endure it till it's gone. Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must. Face to the sun, leave your shadow in your backside and there is always brightness in your front side. Focus on present; yesterday is history and tomorrow is mystery.

3) Think about the idea of karma: Keep your own karma in good shape by being kind to others! You've got to do your own growing; no matter how tall your grandfather was, as my father tells me that your future depends on many things, but mostly on you. The best way to predict your future is to create it, if you work hard the result bounds to come to you but do not expect fruits before Karma; as we read in Geeta: sd{

u/ kmnsf] cfzf gu/ .

Set a goal and develop some strategies to reach it. Break down in small activities to the big goal. Be proactive, it is always better go in action than reaction. Don’t waste much time on watching videos and TV shows, there is big difference between the life in reel and the life in real. You know the theory of natural selection and survival of the fittest. Keep moving:“Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving”-Albert Einstein. The most valuable lesson, a man has to learn from his dog is to kick a few blades of grass over it and move on. Even if you are going through hell, keep going, as Winston Churchill says. You need to cross it. Keep patience, everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, then it's not the end. Keep learning; practice makes a man perfect, and also genius; Pablo says, “For 37 years I’ve practiced fourteen hours a day and now people call me a genius!”- Under pressure, lumps of coal also turn beautiful diamond. You can also make an axe by sharpening a hammer if you desire it: 3g 3f]6L aGr/f] . 4) Take care of yourself: If you can, make a profession to your own hobby that is the best; if you cannot, take your profession as hobby then it makes you happy. Eat and drink what's best for your body. Drink plenty of water and stay away from caffeine and alcohol. Eat light meal and include fruits and vegetables in your daily food, and get good night sleep. Try to eat raw product and in the natural forms as much as you can; like brown rice not polished one, whole fruits not juice. Take pride in yourself. Look inside yourself and retreat your mind and body by mediation, yoga and simple warm up exercises. Enjoy yourself! Life is short. Live it well. Never back down from an obstacle you face. Always remember, you are number one. You are “You” and the world is around you. Enjoy what you do, and don't let anyone get you down because they don't do it, or they don't like it. Give your time in enjoyment not in pleasure; spend time in the activities that need your skill and demand challenge: swim-

Work on yourself: No one is going to make you happier. A lot of people get things mixed up. Usually, a wife thinks about all the bad things of her husband while a widow remembers all the good stuff. Isn’t it better to switch the list around? It means, be happy where you are now. I would like to remind you some basic facts of the nature: There may be some people who are gifted in knowledge, blessed with wealth, beauty or talent, don’t be jealous; look at your own fingers of the hand, if they aren’t also in the same shape and size then how we all can be equal. My mother tells me that if you live in a hut don’t look at who lives in a big house but look at who is homeless. Even you are homeless don’t be hopeless. There is a universal law: the bigger mass stays in the central point; the earth rounds to the sun and the moon to the earth. It may be whatever reason but it is clear to us whoever has lower mass needs to round the higher one. It means, do not hesitate to respect to the higher persons. But never copy bad things done by those people. People cannot criticize bad behavior done by the superior one, that’s why it is not the same if you or others make the same mistake. To quote L. N.Poudyal: 7'nf a8fn] h] u/]

You should know your role and reality in the society which is divided into different strata, you can get the lesson from a Nepali poem; while we become the first in running on foot, the medal goes to the chest not on foot. Bhupi Serchan says: xfdL k}tfnfn] s'b]/

ming, and gardening, cycling, and writing, not in routinely physical pleasure or watching TV shows. Spend your dollar in experience than stuff; if you spend $50 in the campaign of Grandfather Mountain gives you long lasting memories of happiness than buying an over coat in the same amount in Wal-Mart. Ritual and praying can help to heal your mind. Ask for what you want: The mother is to feed her breast to new born baby, but she feeds her either only after feeling pain in her breast or the baby cries, it means if you don’t ask, you will not get it. There is nobody better than you to understand your needs. Be an attentive listener and ask again if it is not clear what they mean. Be Specific: While talking, be specific; try to shorten your points just remember you have two ears and one mouth, listen more, talk less; be short and sweet. ‘A drop of honey attracts more flies than a gallon of gall’, Carnegie. Care in little things: Be happy in your small success and achievement, give a small gift to your beloved ones even you cannot give the big one, every little thing is counted, be an evolutionary not a revolutionary it is the nature of development, Rome was not built in a day. Never forget your origin. sxf“

mean you are weak. Sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let it go. We usually expect others to change according to our expectations. We want everyone to get molded according to our own value system. But it doesn't happen because each one is different. When we look at others in this way we will no longer expect others to change according to our wish but will have full respect for them. Be changed: It is waste of time if you try to change others; change yourself, be a role model and inspire them by behavior, do not waste your time just telling them. Keep in mind that the first and the greatest victory is to conquer yourself .Treat people as you want to be treated by others: Put yourself in other's shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts to the others. Learn the value of mutual respect and live and let live. 7) Recognize when people disrespect you, and take steps to stop it: You cannot always forget and forgive and have positive thought forever if someone is regularly mean to you. Identify the places or people that make you feel uncomfortable with yourself. Eliminate this stuff from your schedule. If someone disrespects you it is not the end of the world, the world moves on and the life goes on. Even your beloved one passes away you have to live then who cares if someone turns back to you. Do not let bother you. You have no time for the people who don't accept you and who don’t respect you. A person with self respect doesn't allow others to treat him badly, and would rather not associate with someone who is disrespectful. There are many times when we accept being treated badly because we believe the person doesn't know any better, or because we're not willing to let that person go, or because we're too down on ourselves thinking that we deserve it. Everything has limitation, enough is enough. My grandfather tells me in Sanskrit clt ;j{oq jh{o]t . When someone doesn't give you basic respect, you need to be able to say, in one way or another. "You just disrespected me and that's not acceptable to me. If you don't respect me, I won't spend time with you anymore." If you turn your back on someone who's clearly shown that they don't respect you, once you do, you'll feel your sense of self-respect goes up. It is up to you fight or flight; recognize the weird persons around you and follow Jagadish Ghimire’s advices:

x'G5 cfkm" x's]{sf] Tof] df6f] la/fgf]< sxf“ x'G5 cfkm"n] lx+8] sf] Tof] af6f] lj/fgf]<

5) Accept and appreciate: If you have not made any mistakes, you’re not working hard on enough problems. Remember that’s the big mistake. If you’re headed in the wrong direction, God allows you to make U-turns, ask yourself, is this right direction or action for you. The only way you may correct the bad thing in your past is to add better things to your future. Remember, everyone makes mistakes but everyone does not repeat them; accept the mistakes but do not repeat them. Think about your old stuff that was funny and laugh about it again in your silliness! If you are confused what to do, ask yourself many times; if you keep rephrasing the question, it gradually becomes the answer. Keep in mind that there is also a clue to an answer in the question paper of your classtest. I am telling you not only appreciate to other’s good behavior but also be proud to yourself, but do not show you are proud. “Be wiser than other people if you can but do not tell them you are” -Carnegie. Remember the lines of Nepali Poet, Poudayal:

1fgL u'0fL JolQm lgx'l/G5 lg/Gt/, kmn]]sf] a[Ifsf] xf“uf] gem's]sf] sxf“ 5 /<

6) Forget and forgive: Learn to forgive. Once your self-esteem is blooming and confidence is glowing, at least one person will be sorry. Forgive and forget; everyone makes mistakes. Giving up doesn't always

If someone said ‘you are fat’, s/he was probably covering up for his/her own insecurity problem. You'd be surprised how many people project their own fears by picking on other people.

Feel superior, and do not care what other said if your wisdom says you are right and honest.

Do not care others' opinions if you are honest: It is not necessary that everyone favors your action and thought around you, the thieves always condemn the full moon night because the presence of the moonlight is the main obstacle to steal things and hide themselves. You may also see few people, who will make you recall the story of ‘Clever Fox’

Online Accounts Safety and Security Sharad Acharya With more financial institutions’ online offerings, managing your personal or business accounts never been easier. Recent availability of mobile banking takes them even further. Your bank and credit card account information is in your fingertips that can be accessed any moment you want. Such convenience brings up some concerns too. The most important concern is none other than safety and security of your online accounts and financial transactions that originate from them. Financial institutions are the first target for potential fraudsters, simply because there is money in there. In this article I will discuss some possible threats to your online accounts and suggest some ‘DOs’ and ‘DONOTs’ to keep them safe and secure.

promised spanning several years prior. No matter which way, loosing credit card or bank information to hackers might have grave consequences. You as a user should always be vigilant to safeguard against hacking incidents. Phishing: Phishing is another method of attack by which a target victim’s identities can be compromised. In phishing, the victim receives an electronic communication (usually email) ‘luring’ to provide their user id, password and credit card or bank account information. A few examples of such emails will claim to come from someone like a widow of President of some African nation to ‘share her husband’s multimillion dollar legacy’ or from a lottery company announcing ‘as winner of a lottery worth 50 million Pounds.’ If the victim engages by responding such email, then they will eventually ask for direct money transfer, bank account or some other kind of payment. There are numerous other ways the phishing emails are sent to a potential victim. The best way to handle the problem is just to ignore the phishing emails.

Hacking: Hacking is act of hackers-- someone who breaksin a computer and/or computer network for profit or pride. The term hacking is sometimes overused to describe wide range of malicious activities. However in the context of cyber security, hacking refers to an act when someone breaks-in victim’s system to gain access to private information. For example, a hacker can break victim’s session while he or she is logged in to his or her bank account. This is also known as session hijacking. Once hijacked, the hacker can do almost anything to the account that the account holder can do, such as transfer money, setup recurring payment to other accounts or even change login-id and password of the account.

Malwares: man in the middle Yet another and more sophisticated form of an attack is ‘man in the middle attack.’ Such an attack is more prevalent in business but an individual can be victim too. In such attack, the victim’s computer gets infected with a ‘malware’ which acts as ‘man in the middle’--it works its way by sitting between the victim and his bank’s servers manipulating the communication. To understand this attack, let’s suppose that Mr. X (the victim) has savings and checking accounts in a bank. As most of us do, he is doing the month end balancing-- moving $1000 from his Checking account (C1234) to Savings account (S4321). If infected, the man in the middle malware modifies the transfer amount to $10,000 from C1234 (Mr. X’s checking account) to $9999 (hacker’s savings) before the transfer request is sent to the bank’s server. In a normal circumstance, the bank’s server has no way to verify that Mr. X’s request has been ‘forged’ by the malware, the transfer is made from his account to the hacker’s

Sometimes a victim’s information may get compromised by some indirect means too. Although the attack is not directly targeted, the victim could have been just in ‘a wrong place in a wrong time.’ For example, someone purchased some items from an online retailer using his credit card. Later the credit card information was stolen in some hacking incident. The credit card information might be sold and re-sold multiple times before it is actually used. An incident worth to mention here is a news that broke in January 2009 about security breach of Heartland Payment Systems. This was a huge security breach-- security experts believe that in this incident alone, more than 170 million customer’s records might have been com-

account. Further, the malware modifies the confirmation message from bank to look like the money was transferred in correct amount to correct account when Mr. X sees it. By the time he knows what he saw was not correct, it is already late--he has already lost $10,000 to a swindler!

3. Do harden, closely monitor, and limit remote and physical access to infrastructure that is hosting critical security information such as credit card or bank accounts. In other words, log in to your account only when you need it. Monitor your accounts frequently to make sure no suspicious activities are recorded. Recently banks have started to provide browser hardening software free of charge-- if your bank is one of them then use it.

Social Engineering: Social engineering is relatively new term in cyber security spectrum. Instead of breaking into the victim’s system, the attackers tend to manipulate or trick the user to provide personal information using social media. Social engineering can also be used by bill collectors, bounty hunters or skip tracers. Since most of us use social media in one form or another, you must be mindful on what information to share in such media and what not to share so that your personal and financial information is protected.

4. Do know the security realms. Before you are asked to log on to any financial institutions site, you are always presented a secure site with banks public key certificate. A secure site uses SSL protocol. The URL (web address) of such site starts with ‘https’. Also most recent browsers display a ‘lock’ image at the beginning of the URL. If you click the image, it will display the public key certificate of the organization where your credentials are being sent.

The types of attacks listed above are some of the more prevalent ones. It is impossible to discuss all of them in this short article. However, the point is that the risk to get your accounts compromised, especially doing online transactions is very real. Everybody should be aware of such risks and take control of their online safety and security seriously. If compromised, the damage is not only limited to the current incident. The victim is at risk for any time in future. Below are some of the common tips (things to do and things to avoid) to safeguard your online activity, especially those that involve money. This is not an exhaustive list, they are meant just to provide very basic security awareness. Depending on your browsing habits, these measures may just be enough for some and not for others.

5. Do update your antivirus software more frequently. Some antivirus software are free others are not. Even if you are paying for them, the cost of your computer getting infected with virus and malware are much more than what you pay for protection. Also, update operating system patches as and when available. Some DONOTs: 1. Do not use, when possible, public Internet to access bank accounts. Minimize or abstain accessing your online account from public computers such as library. If you must, do not save your login id and password ( answer ‘no’ to the prompt). Make sure that you are accessing securely (remember to check SSL and public key certificate). Also never forget to log out before you leave the terminal.

Some DOs: 1. Do enforce strong password and pin policy. Select your user id and password that are difficult to guess by others. Change your password frequently. Financial institutions started to enforce a password phrase or security question. If that is the case, choose a phrase (or answer) that only you know. For example if you choose security question ‘as name of your high school’, that can easily be guessed (using social media or others). Whereas ‘what was the favorite place of your childhood’ might be much difficult to guess.

2. Do not treat social media and online applications as same breed. Be mindful while using social media. They are part of life today--most of us have Facebook, Twitter or other form of social media profiles. However keep in mind that social media is for sharing your information with others, while the reverse is true for financial information. 3. Do not provide user names, password or any other credentials in email communication or instant messaging. Financial institutions do not ask to provide such information in email, so if you get email asking for your bank account or credit card details, then someone is trying to ‘phishing’ you.

2. Do educate yourself on the importance of avoiding suspicious emails. Open and respond to an email that you are expecting. Make use of ‘Junk Mail’ filter provided by the email application.

North Carolina Nepali School Survey Questionnaire Survey: Effectiveness of Nepali Class to Disseminate Nepali Values and Culture From the outset it seemed like Nepali class provided more enthusiasm to parents then children. North Carolina Nepali Community (NCNC) believes that we should keep on reminding our children Nepali values and cultures. Organizing Nepali class is a small step towards the direction. We are seeking input from parents for improvement of the layout and instruction of the class so that children can participate and learn with full enthusiasm. Your input is extremely important for the future of NCNC in general and Nepali class in particular. Circle your child’s Level: ---------(Options: 1A, 1B, 1C) 1.

The Art of Giving ævf]H5g\ ;a} ;'v elg, ;'v Tof] sxf“ 5< cfkm" ld6fO c?nfO{ lbg' hxf“ 5 .Æ –dxfslj b]jsf]6f Nisha Dhakal, Cary Many religions have focused on giving certain percentage of earnings and help to the needy one. If you look in our surroundings; rivers do not drink their own water, nor do trees eat their own fruit, nor do rain clouds eat the grains reared by them. The wealth of the noble is used solely for the benefit to others. If you spend $5 dollar buying some food to needy one gives you much satisfaction and happiness than spending for yourself. So, giving is not only beneficial to others but also it is a source of happiness to you. True happiness is an experience which touches others too. If you are confused how to get the true happiness and interested to get the ideas for giving and willing to give; I have collected and presented below few questions and answers as art of giving:

5) Next answer for ‘How to give? Coming to the manner of giving, one has to ensure that the receiver does not feel humiliated, nor the giver feels proud by giving. In giving, follow the advice of silence: “Let not your left hand knows what your right hand gives?” Charity without publicity and fanfare is the highest form of charity. ‘Give quietly! While giving, let not the recipient feel small or humiliated. After all what we give never really belonged to us. We come to this world with nothing and will go with nothing. The thing gifted was only with us for a temporary period. Why then take pride in giving away something which really did not belong to us? Give with grace and with a feeling of gratitude. If you are offering food to eat, ask before you eat, don’t offer your left over food and do not offer just one person and discriminate others if they are in a group or in a line.

1) The first question is when should one give? One does not know really whether one will be there tomorrow or not to give! Therefore, the right time to give is now. 2) The next question is ‘how much to give? The answer to this question how much to give is “Give as much as you can! “It is every man's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it”. -Albert Einstein

6) What should one feel after giving? To answer this question, I would like to present an event of Mahabharata; we all know the story of Eklavya and his dedication to his guru Dronacharya. When Dronacharya asked him for his right thumb as “Guru Dakshina, he unhesitatingly cut off the thumb and gave it to Dronacharya. There is a little known sequel to this story. Eklavya was asked whether he ever regretted the act of giving away his thumb. He replied, and the reply is believed as true, as it was asked to him when he was dying. His reply was “Yes! I regretted this only once in my life. It was when Pandavas were coming to kill Dronacharya who was broken hearted on the false news of death of his son Ashwathama and had stopped fighting. At that time, I regretted the loss of my thumb. If the thumb was there, no one could have dared hurt my Guru?” The message to us is clear. Give and never regret giving!

3) The next question is what to give? It is not only money that can be given. It can be a flower or even your smile. It is not how much one gives but how one gives that really matters. When you give smile to a stranger that may be the only good thing received by him in days and weeks! “You can give anything, but you must give with your heart! 4) You may also need answer to the question; whom to give? Many times we avoid giving by finding fault with the person who is seeking. However, being judgmental and rejecting a person on the presumption that s/he may not be the most deserving is not justified. “Give without being judgmental!

Expect nothing in return: You are giving because you want to it. If you don't want to, then you need to reassess the point of what it is that you are really doing. Do not expect gratitude, smiles or something in return. Although most respectful and well-mannered people will demonstrate gratitude, there are times where this will not be forthcoming for one reason or other but that does not necessarily mean that the person doesn't respect your gift-giving or not appreciate it. Sometimes people are embarrassed, too surprised, shy, ashamed, or self-conscious to react in a gracious manner. If you have given with good heart, their reaction or lack of one should not bother you. Look deeper and you will see truly how the gift has been received.

• A voucher/gift card for a massage, fitness class or continue education • Paying membership fee for others or being oneself in organization like NCNC. • Volunteering for dance or language classes, New year event of your community Let it be surprised: You can give a gift randomly without any reason in any season it may surprise them and bring smiles both of you. Why not to try it now? There is saying, ‘When the wealth in the house increases, when water fills a boat, throw them out with both hands!’ ‘The wealth that is not used for the gods, wise men, relatives or for oneself is destroyed by water, enemy, government and thieves.’

Think beyond stuff: Stuff is all very nice and cute when wrapped up but stuff ends up drowning us. Sometimes, giving stuff is giving a burden to another person and the condition involved in such a gift is that the recipient puts up with shelving your stuff in their already over-crowded life. If you are gifting the person-who-has-everything, avoid stuff. Consider alternatives that won't oblige the condition of adding mess on the recipient, gifts such as: • A promise to visit monthly to take an elderly recipient to art galleries or park • A phone call to your elders or home visit to your respected one. • A service for house-cleaning service, car-wash etc, helping in ritual ceremony. • Plants for the garden that will produce food, scent or shade

Influences From Nepalese Family Traditions Simran Khadka As a Nepalese teenager, I am knowledgeable of my parents’ influence on Nepalese traditions. Like any other parents, they love me. They want to make sure their daughter grows up to be strong and beautiful. I understand my parents. Ever since we immigrated to the United States, I was more interested in Nepali traditions than usual.

sexism as a tradition because it doesn’t show a positive image to others and breaks human rights. Getting critics from people and following strict rules no matter the environment had made a negative influence on me. I have to refuse sharing my snacks with my friends during that certain time and getting sexist remarks has led me to become hard on myself after any other disputes. These are some dissenting things that remain in my life.

Living in the United States was different because Nepalese people were peculiar in many ways. The Nepalese children were westernized, but their parents tried to keep them traditional. My parents were among them. At first, my parents were proud of me because all the Nepali parents admired me for my politeness and maturity. While the parents adored me, I was an outcast to the children. I had a different English accent and spoke Nepali with them. They always replied in English and didn’t even bother saying “Namaste” to adults. I was shocked. My parents kept on motivating me to speak Nepali and be traditional, but I needed to fit in because I was lonely. My plan was to be more American by speaking more English, getting my parents to buy me the new video games, not participating in pujas, being more interested in English songs, not bothering to say Namaste, etc. I started being in the crowd and I loved it.

Impugning practices in our Nepalese culture may hold me back, but I admire being from Nepal. I believe most of our family traditions show important life lessons. Respecting our elders, being faithful to our religion, and eating wonderful food fills the holes in my heart. My parents taught me to respect the elders because it shows great obedience and positive impressions. I always say “Namaste,” and offer to help if I see a Nepali adult. Being faithful to my religion gives me support and hope. If there is a situation when nobody can help me, I can always look up to the gods because being near them gives me a strong feeling to fight back. Finally, the food is too good to be true. Rice, lentils, vegetables, pickles, and meat is a good combination. It even sounds better if you say “bhaat,”“tarkari,”“achar,” and “masu”. These foods are much healthier than American foods like hamburgers and hot dogs. Along with being homemade, my favorite food is, “momo,” which is dumplings. The foods have adapted to my stomach and I cannot live a day without eating them. There are more good impacts, but I believe these are the best imprints in my life.

Being in the United States has made my parents work harder to keep the traditions. If we were still in Nepal, my whole family would assist my parents. Living here has kept some Nepalese traditions ignored, and I’m relieved some are avoided. It seems medieval to isolate a girl for 14 days in a room when she first starts menstruating. I had to skip that tradition due to school, but families still do it in rural and cities in Nepal. My parents were disappointed that such an important tradition had to be skipped, but education is more significant. Starting with the next cycle, girls or women shouldn’t go in the kitchen, touch men, go near the gods, share their food, etc. for four days. With two daughters in the house, some Nepalese people are surprised my parents aren’t bothering to raise a son. Having a brother probably meant more fun, but there was another story behind it. Nepalese people wanted sons because they were said to bring wealth. My parents were proud of my sister and me, but most rural citizens and strict families have all these sayings about how having a daughter brings an “ill fate.” Due to Westernization, these adages are disappearing, but most women in rural areas still suffer in a harsh environment. We need to be more aware of

Since I like to be optimistic, I believe respecting our elders is the most significant tradition in our life. The word “respect” is a small word with a huge reputation. Americans always compliment on my politeness and etiquette. They always ask my mother, “How do you do it?” My mother just laughs it off, but having respect for adults is a big step to being a grown up. Young people need to respect adults because they are mostly dependent. That is a tradition that fits in any part of the world because it is golden. Being a Nepali teenager has led me to have fun with my culture, but even the negative has brought me to bring awareness to some parts. For example, a tradition like sexism has gotten me to guide the future to divert that path. Overall, being in a Nepalese family is favorable to me because it helped me become more mature and kind-hearted. Second place winner NASeA-ANMA essay contest 2011 -Editor

Brain Corner Ramy Pandey

Some effective ways to enhance memory and focus: 1) Meditation: Meditation is highly effectively and scientifically proven method of alleviating stress and clearing cluttered mind. It is known to improve visual memory and focus. It can be performed whenever your stress levels rise and cloud your judgment. The simplest way to do meditation is by sitting in a calm spot with your eyes closed while focusing on your breathing.

Some Brain healthy foods: 1) Omega-3s: Omega-3 fatty acids play crucial role in brain function, growth and development. Omega-3s are highly concentrated in brain and are important for brain memory and performance. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in- Salmon, tuna, walnuts, ground flaxseed, pumpkin seeds etc.

2) Making a visual connection: Try connecting words and phrases with some colorful and vivid images to help you remember them better. Flashcards with pictures are very effective in memorizing words.

2) Fruits and Vegetables: Fruits and Vegetables are packed with lots of vitamins and antioxidants. Antioxidants help prevent brain from free radical damage, tolerate stress, support learning and enhance cognitive function.

3) Mind Games: Devote some of your time playing chess or solving crosswords, riddles and puzzles. These exercises will help you develop critical thinking skills and be focused.

3) Red Wine: Research has shown that 8-12 ounces of red wine consumption a day may actually improve memory and cognition. Red wine is rich in Resveratrol, an ingredient that prevents blood vessel damage and clots. Resveratrol boosts blood flow in the brain and reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Other Resveratrol-packed options are – grape juice, cranberry juice, berries, peanuts etc.

4) Sleep and exercise: Get a good night sleep and do at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise a day. A good night sleep will help your brain operate at its full capacity and aerobic exercise will increase the flow of blood and oxygen in your brain promoting the growth of new brain cells and improving the memory and ability to learn.
