Looking back to the year 2015, it was a complete package in terms of learning, travelling , surviving, meeting friends and their families, and also waiting ;) Here, I have tried to pin-point the major 5 things of 2015.
4 years of stay at Institute of Forestry, Danphe Hostel came to an end. Those surely were the best days of my life ad I miss it badly. I am so much grateful to all my batch mates, teachers plus my family to make it sooo memorable for me. I have been blessed to have lifelong friends and memories in those years we stayed together. All those crazy acts. dances, and fun we did in the hostel, traveling together far and wide, tiring field works are still fresh due to these beautiful souls. Wishing them all the best in their future endeavor.

2. FORESTACTION NEPAL
Stepped into professional career after studies. Had a very short yet sweet memories from the workplace. Every day was a new lesson :) Met some awesome colleagues aka sisters, frens and brothers :)
3. EARTHQUAKE & BLOCKADE
Survived through the disastrous earthquake in April 25,2015. It surely makes this year quite memorable for me. It killed more than 9000 people and lakhs of houses have been destroyed. Meanwhile,I can't stop myself from thanking all those people and frens who continuously provided me with enough courage to face the trauma and all those care and supports dat helped me bounce back :)
In September govt promulgated the most awaited constitution, however, it has been a curse to Nepalese as it resulted the madhes uprising and Indian economic blockade. So, no cooking gas, fuels to cook, travel. Medicines have gone short and country's economic rate has doomed to 1% or say its in crisis already. Surviving through this anthropogenic catastrophe as well.
4. MORE TRAVELING
Despite adversities, 2015 has also been amazing in terms of travelling.
a)Explored Gosaikunda:Frozen Lake(4380 masl) few days before earthquake. 4 girls jumped into the trip making it lifelong memories. Hotsprings, rhododendron clad forests, wonderful locals, Yak cheese and lots of snow along with laughters!!!
b) Visited India and SriLanka
Attended Student Conference on Conservation Science 2015 in Bangalore and presented my research on vultures :) Met some wonderful researchers, scientists and experts. Explored Mysore, Bangalore:) tasted a bit of southern India.
Finally, I cud visit Srilanka in Dec :) through South Asian Youth Conference. Loved the beaches, srilankan culture and country as a whole. Galle face beach, Kandy, Sigiriya, Temple of Tooth Relic, Pinnawala, Mount Lavinia and much more.
5. MEETING AMAZING PEOPLE
2015 has been a year of friendship beyond borders. I have lifelong friends far and wide who keep on inspiring me and bestowing me with lots of love and care. I am soo much grateful to have them in my life. Plus, meeting old friends rejuvenates all those memories dat we once lived. Whatever the medium used, the invaluable friendship I earned will be very close to my heart for ever and ever.
2015 has made me stronger, crazier and matured in many ways. I wish 2016 would embrace me with much more surprises, more learnings and travel diaries to share. Thanks everyone for making my year soo beautiful and I hope the new year will shower u all with happiness, and covetous success :)
Wishing for peace and friendship in the world :) Happy New Year 2016!!!
