“Change is the only constant thing in the world”


     “Change is the only constant thing in the world”, it is often one of the proverb that is often heard of. In many ways it is more that true. We can see the rivers yesterday changing into dryland in the future and see the high mountain peaks diminishing in their height every day. Well these are the changes in regard to Mother Nature and hardly any of us can challenge her and in attempt of doing so humans have lost their lives too but what about the changes that we crave for?
      I saw one image in facebook that shows, when asked who wants change? Everyone raises their hands up in the sky but when asked who wants to change? Everyone was only bowing their head. When walk at the streets of Kathmandu(capital city of Nepal) see a pile of trash being thrown at the side of street we cover our nose and blame government for not picking up the trash but we forget that it was one of us who put the first plastic of trash at the side of a road. It is not always the government who should take the responsibility of.
     Many of us might still remember how the capital was beautified for 18th SAARC(South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) summit. But after that, everytime the metropolitan officers had to supervise and punish people who plucked the flower, who walk from the side of those plants instead of using the pavements. In such case, we have no right to blame government because we are not doing our duty properly as a citizen. Even today when I was coming from my college to home I saw people plucking the leaves and I had to discuss to them. But everyone cannot shout at you every single time. Self-consciousness is as important as the availability of rights. This is the instance of my country, I am sure may be not exactly in the same way but your country too might have some issues for which not the government but citizens should be responsible of. Lastly, I would like to request all not just to ask for change but to be the part of change rather be the change !
