मेरा मनका माओवादी-३

UWB Note: In this concluding part of a series of articles written in Nepali language, Maya the blogger, a Nepali girl, describes her experience of growing up (early to late teen life) with expanding Maoist activities around her neighborhood.

माओवादीसंग बढ्दै गएको मेरो संगतले आमा डराउन थाल्नुभएको थियो … किन किन मान्छे मार्ने कुरामा सहमत हन नसकेपनि उनीहरूले नै अब केही गर्छन कि जस्तो लाग्थ्यो । गाउँमा… उनीहरूले तास बन्द गराएपछि मेरी आमाले खानाको लागि अबेरसम्म बुवालाई कुर्न परेन । मलाई यो कुराले पनि प्रभाव पारेको थियो ।

माओवादी कस्ता हुन्छन् ? स्कुलमा एकदिन शर्मीला भन्ने साथीले भनी, ‘काला, अग्ला डरलाग्दा !!’ ऊ उमेरमा मभन्दा ठुली थिई त्यसैले उसलाई थाहा भएको कुरा साँचो हुनपर्छ भन्ने मेरो विश्वास थियो । मैले उसको कुरा पत्याएको थिए । चियापसलमा माओवादीका कुरा एकदम कम हुन्थ्यो । माओवादीले राजालाई पनि मार्छन, राजालाई पनि छाड्दैनन् रे । यस्तो सुनेपछि त झन शर्मीलाको कुरा हो झै लाग्थ्यो किनकी राजालाई पनि नछाड्नेहरू त साधारण मान्छे नहुनपर्ने । गाउँका बुद्धिजीवीहरू माओवाद भनेको के हो भन्दा पनि माओवादी नेता बाबुरामको चर्चा गर्थे । नारायण वाग्लेले लेखेका कुरा झैं, बोर्ड फस्ट भएको, इन्जिनियर अनि अरू पनि । माओवादीहरूको बारेमा जान्न खासै कोशिस गरीन मैले, किनकी भन्ने मान्छे नै कोही थिएन । Continue reading मेरा मनका माओवादी-३

A Year ago, Department of Information ordered to install one hundred 49 hoarding boards on the banks of main streets of Kathmandu. According to the Department sources, 1.5 million rupees were spent on making such boards that propagate mostly king Gyanendra’s hollow claims of democracy.
