Dreams of a Nepali teenager from Dolpa…

Just read this very touching story on BBC Online about a Nepali teenager from the remote district of Dolpa in north-west Nepal who won an essay competition organised by the BBC Nepali service and got to record his story for the radio. Excellent stuff…

From the pleasant surroundings of my school in Nepal’s very remote district of Dolpa, I have been trying to develop myself for nearly 10 years, constantly dreaming of doing something good for my society and country.

But however hard I try, neither progress nor prosperity is in sight.
