People say time is money. But does everyone who has lots of time necessarily have money?
Freedom is not always the answer. These people have too much freedom. In America there is a saying:
"Giving someone enough rope to hang themself" http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/give_him_enough_rope_and_he'll_hang_himself
Life in Nepal has conditioned us for unreasonable expectancy of free time. Breakfast khayo, ekchin paper padyo, lunch khayo, ekchin sutyo, chiya khayo, ekchin tv heryo, dinner khayo, majale guff garyo ago tapdai, ani sutyo. IF you want to have this sort of lifestyle, there should be no confusion, you are clearly in the wrong country!
Let me explain. You have no doubt seen our majestic tundikhel. Have you also noticed its day-time occupants? You know sitting in the sun, cracking peanuts, just wasting time, doing idle talk? THAT is what our society has turned into. confused? more like, confused if he/she should get off his ass and do some hardwork.
There are a lot of people in this world who have a lot of time on their hands. Too much time is as much a problem as having too little time.
If you watched this movie with Justin Timberlake, you will see the problems that come from having too little time:
There are many people who have too much time on their hands. They have too much freedom. They use that free time to abuse drugs, alcohol or do Nepal Bandhs. If these people were busy doing positive and productive things, then not only would they be doing good for themselves but they would be doing good for Nepal as well.
Do you disagree?
