Kisan Dangal & Bikash Tamang, originally from Dolalghat, friends, ran away from home and how living in an orphanage in Kalanki. They come here to collect money which they can spend at their will or also put it in their account in the orphanage. Both collect money together and want to go home next Dashain, hopefully with "a lot of" money.
a full family...

i know you weren't intending bad... but the point is : we do not doubt whom we love. the thing that keeps us running is that small thread of trust and faith. we put everything to nurture it - as i believe it is the only thing which should be kept out of doubt.
... and it is the basis of everything ... everything that matters.
& as for me, i want to put my everything on the faith - yes everything.
to some extent you are right - the precautionary thing - & the possibility of something unexpected happening in the future... well, tell me where is certainty - certainty at a level that you can predict all the future outcomes... its just a matter of extent of uncertainty - next moment is uncertain, next day is uncertain, everything else is uncertain, ... we cannot keep doubting everything.
its all gray, and the nature of it being gray lets us remain in that ignorance (ignorance is bliss, as they say)
once again, nothing to feel bad buddy, but the way the concern was raised - i just didnt feel good, & it definitely hurts.
