With this blog post, we want to gi­­­­­­­­ve peo­ple from around the world and from dif­­­­­­­­fe­rent back­­­­­­­­grounds the op­­­­­­­­por­tu­­­­­­­­ni­­­­­­­­ty to tell their per­­­­­­­­so­nal sto­ries in ti­­­­­­­­mes of the Co­ro­­­­­­­­na pan­­­­­­­­de­­­­­­­­mic. To­day with a re­port from Kath­man­du, the ca­pi­tal of Ne­pa­l. The je­we­ler Ba­b­lu tells us about the dra­stic con­se­quences of the Co­ro­na pan­de­mic for the ma­ny poor peo­ple in his ci­ty. Ma­ny of the peo­ple live on what they earn per day an­d, due to the lock­dow­n, ha­ve no mo­ney to buy foo­d. Ba­b­lu and ma­ny vol­un­teers help whe­re they can and cook meals for peo­ple who ha­ve no foo­d. Ba­b­lu does this even if the lock­down itself has hit him hard. But lis­ten to his mo­ving re­port from Kath­man­du:

Why this pro­jec­t?

Be­­­­­­cau­­­­­­se the Co­ro­­­­­­na pan­­­­­­de­­­­­­mic has now re­a­ched all the coun­tries of the world and is im­pac­ting the li­­­­­­ves of the ma­­­­­­jo­ri­­­­­­ty of the world’s po­­­­­­pu­la­ti­o­n, we, two stu­­­­­­dents of Cu­sa­­­­­­nus Un­­­­­i­­­­­­ver­­­­­­­­­­­si­­­­­­ty, are in­­­­­­te­res­ted in lea­r­­­­­­ning about peo­ple in other pla­­­­­­ces of the world beyond what the me­­­­­­dia has co­­­­­­ver­­­­­­e­d. The aim is to en­ter in­­­­­­to a so­­­­­­ci­a­l­­­­­­ly re­le­vant di­a­logue at the in­­­­­­ter­face bet­ween aca­­­­­­de­­­­­­mic schol­a­r­­­­­­ship and so­­­­­­ci­e­­­­­­ty, and to au­then­ti­­­­­­ca­l­­­­­­ly pro­vi­­­­­­de dif­­­­­­fe­rent per­spec­ti­­­­­­ve­s. With this goal in min­d, we want to ask peo­ple from dif­­­­­­fe­rent re­­­­­­gi­­­­­­ons of the world to of­­­­­­fer their own in­­­­­­ter­pre­ta­ti­­­­­­ons, their own na­r­ra­ti­­­­­­ves of the cur­rent si­tua­ti­o­n. The blog posts are dis­­­­­played in al­­­­­pha­­­­­be­ti­­­­­cal or­­­­­der of re­­­­­gi­­­­­ons, coun­tries and ci­ties. No­te: The in­­­­­­­­­­­for­­­­­­ma­ti­on pro­vi­­­­­­ded here re­­­­­­pres­ents the in­­­­­­­­­­­di­vi­­­­­­du­al opi­­­­­­ni­­­­­­ons and in­­­­­­­­­­­di­vi­­­­­­du­al ex­­­­­­pe­ri­ences of tho­­­­­­se per­­­­­­sons in­­­­­­ter­view­­­­­­e­d.
