Real Struggle Story of a Nepali Woman That I Came Across During My Visit to Kathkuwa, Surkhet

I met a woman on my visit to Kathkuwa last Saturday. After having a long conversation with her I was deeply moved. She made me realize again that women in Nepal have experienced real struggles in life. The day turned out to be very inspiring and motivating. Such a real struggle story is not easily found but if we try to reach out then it is not impossible.

My last Saturday was filled with fun, laughter and a bike ride up to Kathkuwa. I was going there for a Mega Tree Plantation with the Leo Club of Surkhet Bhairabsthan team. I was very excited because I was going there after a long period of time. Also, this was not a place where I usually get to come. With my excitement, I woke up at 7 am in the morning, did all the kitchen chores and cooked lunch for my grandma.

I met this beautiful, brave woman on a maxi dress with a red tika on her forehead. I had a very interesting and inspiring conversation with her. It has been seventeen years of her life that she is doing this business with her husband at Kathkuwa. She got married at the age of 12. “My parents fixed my marriage with this boy. I didn’t know anything about love,” she shared with us. Both the husband and wife were a little shy while talking about their past and how they became life partners forever. It’s pretty surprising that they have six daughters and one son. They worked together helping each other in and out. The husband was quite silent, he didn’t speak at all. So I had all the conversations with the wife. She tells me that every day she walks for 20 mins to get to her restaurant from her Home in Godhikada. She opens the restaurant at sharp 5:30 am. When she leaves her home early morning, she carries around 5-6 liters of pure buffalo milk on a steel jar, Dahi (curd) and other necessary things for the day. Even her real struggle story has given smiles to her family in return.

All-day she worked very hard to do all the possible arrangements for visitors and cook enough snacks. I was so amazed by her working speed. I noticed that she was easily able to serve more than 20 customers at one time. I was having delicious hot and spicy chana chau chau adding extra lemon, and green chilies with my team. Dahi Chiura is the famous snack of Kathkuwa. I have had it once three years ago. She said that she makes the highest money by selling Dahi chiura. In a day, she earns around six to seven thousand. She runs her restaurant till 7 pm and then goes back home. Her smile was very special and heartwarming for all the people who stopped there for sweet conversations, tea, snacks, or Dahi chiura. She mentioned that sometimes people go there just to eat Dahi chiura, enjoy the beautiful nature, spend some time with their families or loved ones, and get refreshed from all those stressful works.

We have more stories like hers in Nepal. Each woman has passed through that struggling phase just to live, love, and earn to fulfill their basic needs. Education for them was not arranged in the past but they have yet left struggling to look after their family and for themselves. Somehow women in Nepal have become independent. We should be proud of them. We must say that these women in Nepal have experienced real struggle stories in life. My huge respect to each of them.

About Kathkuwa: Kathkuwa is half an hour away towards North from Birendranagar, Surkhet in a vehicle. It lies on the way to Dailekh. Some people also go hiking and it takes around an hour walking from Birendranagar. People can choose to walk through the jungle or road. There is a Surkhet Vipassana Centre where people from all around the world come for meditation. The place is very peaceful, green with different trees and worth visiting.
