Nepal is a poor country with rich people nepaliaustralian gas news

I believe that I am among the average income family for Australia but still after paying mortgage and bills, there is not much left to play around so we have to plan well for any holidays and other luxuries in life but in Kathmandu people seem to be living a real luxury life. I know most of my friends/family in Kathmandu have one things sorted easily, they don’t need to worry about buying/building their own house with their salary. Either they have their family home or have some sort of inheritance sorted to build their home. I think that make them really rich because I know, most of our salary go towards the mortgage.

I went shopping with a few of my friends and cousins who live in Kathmandu and the way they shop is so different from the way I do. The things I felt were expensive, they thought were normal and just bought them. Seriously I can’t justify paying between NPR 30,000 – NPR 1,00,000 ($300-$1000) for a lehengha or sari which is to be worn once a year. gas unlimited houston I also can’t justify a new mobile/tablet every year just to look cool and I definitely can’t justify paying NPR 400 ($4.00) for a hot water with honey and lemon. A lemon in Nepal is NPR 10 and one spoon of honey is NPR 50 max so it sounds ridiculous that people are paying so much for it in a restaurant. They are paying NPR 2500 for a foundation and NPR 1500 for a lip gloss, seriously. Just a reminder again, average salary in Nepal is NPR 10,000 a month. I know it sounds OK in terms of dollar here but not in Nepal for sure.

In Nepal now and just paid $3.00 USD for an entire meal for two people. 2 drinks- 2 entrees. Spent $1 on a fresh honey lemon ginger with hot water. The tourist places are obviously going to be more money- but not much. The most we have paid for a meal here is $30.00 and that was superr fancy. The locals in Kathmandu take bucket showers or shower in the polluted river because of the lack of clean water. I honestly am so confused as to where you have been. Travel??? These people are worried about basic needs– food, water, shelter, and health. We have walked alot of streets here in Nepal and see and talk to the people and they are struggling! We always over tip here and barley bargain– The look on the waiters face when we give them $2.00 is astonisment. They cant even believe some one is handing them 200 rupee ($2). electric utility companies in arizona They are also extremely thankful for the two extra bucks. Im experiencing a much different perspective. That being said this Country is beautful the people are so stronge mentally and physically. The mountains are the best views in the world. There so devotied in their faith that its inspiring –and warmly welcoming.

Exactly, I always been saying almost same thing here to people when I have to explain like how is Nepal and How poor it is and what’s the standard of living of people there.. Unless one has to explain to some one, like Australian who never been to nepal, we don’t reliaze its not actually so much of easy case to explain and make them understand.

First difficult point was, since in GDP list like u said, Nepal almost comes in last group of poorest of poor countries among majority of African poor nations. But irony is when we read or see in movies or documentaries about poor African nation, the people their are actually poor to the point they have hard time getting day to day food and water and basic necessities of life, its all about struggle for very very basic necessities of life and that gives pretty accurate picture of poorest African nations.. But Nepal even though comes in same range/list as per such calculated list, average people have far better living condition than those explained and ironically some time equivalent of other developing nations.

So how come, my straight forward answer is, people in average in Nepal are not poor, they aren’t super rich but well not poor either that they have to struggle to acquire minimum calorie intake to housing to basic health care, etc.. Most people have inherited land and houses of their own, more so over in remote parts. igas energy shares And most people in village areas, even in cities like pokhara, have some land other than. House to grow vegetables and staple crops for themselves, so even though may not be sufficient for them to live off the land completely, partially most have that arrangement.

The problem of Nepal is its political system and very disorganized corrupt governmenance. 9gag nsfw The so called politicians are without any moral values and lack will and determination for sake of country. And there is basic laid back or let it be type nature among people too (must be a cultural factor, please check an excellent Ted talk in office management and organisation in Indian cultural context while incorporating cultural let it be sense in general).

Thus government,I.e.country is poor but people themselves are not. Actually market price of basic necessities to luxury items is almost comparable of Australia and even though with far far less average disposable income, people some how are able to afford such luxury that people here in Australia do) .. And how that is happening is very hard to explain.

True and sad. I blame it on the competition mentality. Specially in events, when someone think they can spend and justify it with numerous reasons, it will put pressure on those slightly under them, and it goes on. And there will be people judging. Everything is celebrated with a feast now. Even a child’s pasni or bratbandha is no more about the child but about the feast. Even if you insist on keeping a wedding simple, not everyone will agree and somehow costs will expand beyond imagination. The price you stated for sarees etc. are quite expensive for a middle class, but yes for weddings they will consider it. I don’t get the obsession with latest technology either, being a technological person myself.

I used to think Nepal is a richer country of poorer people because government has some money that it doesn’t use wisely, but recently I came to know it’s the opposite, which is sad because it is a country of poor people too. That money should go to help people in need instead. electricity for dummies amazon Or at least people should invest in their community to make things better rather than spending unwisely. People love thinking it’s government’s task to do it for them, while knowing that it won’t!

Recently, we sat down with my MiL and discussed weddings as M’s bahini needs to be married either this year or next and then it will be our turn. The prices she was speaking about had me in a state of shock. They were expecting to spend a minimum of 50 thousand pounds for her wedding and about 40 thousand for ours. Then on top of that price I would have to pay for all the sarees for the women, golden rings for all aunts and uncles as well as a ceremony in England and flights for all family back and forth. I had no idea how on earth they could afford such large figures when back home in England my parents do not even have a mortgage.

It left me feeling a little angry the more I learnt about the money dealings in Nepal e.g. dowry expenses in the villages and bribes to government officials. The sum of figures they were casually discussing left my head dizzy and completely shocked me. And then, people would assume I was of a similar standing or more as I am from a ‘foreign’ country so I must be rich which is completely the opposite case.
