I am from Nepal. I read through few of the article in this site and saw the world so similar yet so different from mine. My culture too has boundaries similar to many other cultures and somehow these boundaries are a little more strict and tough for girls and woman. Yet it is different for me, because i am fortunate to have a mother who dreams to raise her daughters no different from a son.... To do that i have seen my mother struggle and fight for us with any one and everyone be it her mother-in-law or her financial condition. In her i see the passion to fight for her dream- our prosperous future.... I have two younger sisters and i love them more than myself. When we were little everyone asked my mom for a son. Many a times i could hear my mom crying and saying that she would run away to live a life with her daughters where nobody could judge her child on the basis of their gender. She believed every child can be star of a family if you give them the adequate opportunities and freedom to live their dreams....
Alast, all i want to say is I am who I intend to be and I have to opportunity to be who I intend to be because of the constant support and guidance of my hero- My mother.
