Tug of war within me and my outside territory with surroundings.

Alas~ what a life so far. Struggling inside and with the outside forces - push and pull. Yeah, I am alive!

I see the tug of war between Rich vs Poor. I can't define this in that way because In what ways we can say he is rich or he is poor? Solely on economic terms? Yuck! what an attitude! That's an ugly way to interpret if he has a car in the family - then he is rich! What a ridiculous statement is this.

I define prosperity in the following ways.

If you have access to the resources, then you are rich.
If you are happy today, then you are rich.
If you have enough foods to eat and enough water to drink then you are rich.
If you have clean, safe clothes to wear, then you are rich.
If you don't have to live in dirty places, then you are rich.
If you are capable to change your situation, then you are rich.
If you are self-reliant and independent then you are rich.
If you can do what you want, then you are rich.
If you are free to do in your life whatever you desire, then you are rich enough to live.

So, the question is nowadays of equality. The gap between rich vs poor. Can you imagine those living in a lofty and beautiful house, are they have all those mentioned above? I think, 50% could be still under poverty.

There are extreme outside for those who even struggle for a roti a day. Are those exist today in Kathmandu Valley? They need to be addressed. Especially girls who have their own struggling as they grow up into adolescence. But let's not ignore boys in this case as well.

Personally, I feel struggling with the people for those in the name of the minority, they want to use the whole piece of cake. I felt second class in front of them. There are men who can't speak up for their rights because the image of women empowerment and image are largely in the screen of society.
We the men support women, and vice versa. Equality begins this way. No, any other ways.
