The world’s biggest social network Facebook says the average distance between two people in the word (i.e. the world of facebook) is about 5 person. That means by hopping the friend list of any random 5 people will connect you to almost any other people in the world. Being specific, the world population in 2011 was counted to be 6,973,738,433. This statistic is mind boggling. You can know 7 billion people just by connecting with link of 5 people. The essence of this fact is we are connected together. All of us! And therefore the world is round.

There is another fact hanging around: the average number of Facebook friends is 130. Interestingly, other research shows most adults have ‘only two close friends’. So who are the rest of them? I don’t know.

I don’t know why we got connected. But the floating energy from the distance galaxy in the form of cosmos has made us connected. Sticked together.

The answer to your question is really hard to answer. Why are we friends? To find answer, I ask to myself and I get 100s of reasons and justifications, but none of them satisfies me. The only fact remains is: We are friend. Good or bad, in fight or in laugh.

We know our limitations, we know our capabilities, and we share everything we know. I hide something of mine, and you do the same. But at the back of mind, we expect to share that.

We don’t want to interfere on personal business but that doesn’t happen. It feels good when we interfere in those personal businesses. Though angry we may look, but deep inside we are satisfied.

You may be blue and I may be yellow, but together we make shade of happiness!

On 15 october 2011, with anoj i went to stretch legs on the field of western kathmandu. We hiked from kritipur to khokana and then to bungamati. Crosed the mustered field and the paddy fields.Clicked photos on the way.

Crossed bagmati at Chovar near Jalbinayak. Fields were yellow with flowers of mustard. Farmers were busy to harvest paddy. We Reached khokana in about three hours.

With Sajan, this time I had to travel to Siprin Khola for field verification of project works, but there was some extra stuffs stored for us in this journey.

On the way

After forgetting to have breakfast at Sharmila’s hotel (the popular hotel of this route at zero kilo) we had fried fish at Khadichaur.

The real thing to share is the ice fight at Mude and Khari Dhunga. There was snow fall the day before and road was filled with snow while sun was still shining. Beautiful combination. And with Sherpa girls around, it was awesome 😉

Sajan, Pawan Yadav, Yam ji and Naresh were our (not so brave) fighters to defend against a experienced troops of Sherpa girls and school children. The school was closed that day to let children to enjoy and play snow!

Slippery was snow, but the grip was strong enough to fight. While escaping the cannon balls of cold snow, body was became sweaty.

With silver color on the background, even the ugly face becomes beautiful. See photographs for proof!

The real work…

As usual the trip ended with inspection of the project and returning back.

However…….there was still more to come on the way back…

Returning back……

On the way back, we had launch at Singati Bazaar and then travelled towards Kathmandu.

On the way, snow was still left on the road at Khari Dhunga. This time, Rabin Nepal was with us and he had missed the fight when we had shown him the photographs. However, this time, there were no troops attacking us. So we could relax and enjoy the beauty of the place.
