Flocks of people enter in the Valley carrying The Dream of Success. There may not be any similarities in financial, social and educational background among them. In this diversity every people struggle in their own circumstance Nawaraj Niraula,23, is a an ordinary but model guy. Sarlahi, Janakinagar VDC’s guy Nirauala, studying in Mastersters in Business Studies at Patan Campus, Lalitpur.
While studying his regular schedule, it feels like many youth sometimes compromise with time and sometimes struggle with it.
He didn’t get any job in the early days of his entry in Kathmandu Valley. He was suffering because of lack of money. So he started the job of Pujari to manage his hand to mouth problem. Niraula says, in those days I used to wake up early in the morning, finish bathing and wear the traditional clothes. Then I used to go to Saahu Mahajan for rituals. This ritual was his compulsion rather than hobby.
A secondary level graduate of Mahindra Sanskrit University, had have never thought that his learning will be useful for him to struggle at the early days in the valley. He says, there are numbers of youth who would have never thought that they will do an unexpected job in their life. It life, we have to sustain at any cost. That why he still follows his earlier habit of waking up from the bed early in the morning, bathing, worshipping. Born in poverty is not a curse but dyeing in poverty is a curse that’s what pushes human being ahead in their life.
Such thought is connected with the story of struggle. I am trying to catch up the same speed, he says, the life is not easy for guys like me who come from a poor family background. One needs to be more sincere and alert. These days Niraula is working for Advertising Company at Kathmandu. City has more opportunity for success in life than the village, that’s why I have been here to fulfill my dream, He says, everyone gradually reaches on the top of success.
I have to change my life and living. I won’t remain with the job of worshipper all along my life. I have the dream to reach on the top post of a Corporate Company. Whatsoever, Niraula’s life represents the dreams and struggles of youth. His life and the conflicts are well portrayed by the picture.
