Once upon a time, in a small town in Kavrepalanchok, there lived a young man named Ankit. He was ambitious and had big dreams of studying abroad. He believed that venturing beyond his hometown would open up new opportunities and broaden his horizons. Ankit had his heart set on pursuing higher education in the United States, and he worked diligently to meet the academic requirements and gather all the necessary documents.

Excitedly, Ankit applied for a student visa to the UnitedStates, hoping to secure his place in a renowned university. However, to his dismay, his visa application was rejected not once, but twice. Despite feeling disheartened, Ankit refused to give up on his dreams. Undeterred, he decided to explore other options and set his sights on Australia.

With renewed determination, Ankit meticulously prepared his visa application for Australia, confident that his efforts would bear fruit. Yet, much to his disappointment, he received rejection letters from the Australian High Commission twice. Ankit couldn't understand why his aspirations were being met with such continuous setbacks.

Refusing to let despair consume him, Ankit turned his attention towards Canada. He saw it as a land of opportunities and believed that his luck might change there. He applied for a Canadian visa not once, but twice, but his hopes were dashed yet again when he received two more rejections. The constant string of disappointments was taking its toll on Ankit.

Amidst his struggles, Ankit came across an advertisement promising a foolproof way to secure a Canadian visa. Hopeful yet cautious, he reached out to the advertised immigration agents who assured him of their expertise and guaranteed results. With a leap of faith, Ankit entrusted them with a significant sum of 20,000 USD, hoping that this would be the key to his dreams.

Sadly, Ankit soon discovered that the immigration agents were nothing more than scammers. They had lured him into their deceitful trap, and his hard-earned money vanished into thin air. He was devastated, not only by the loss of his savings but also by the betrayal he had experienced.

Feeling defeated and lost, Ankit began to lose faith in his aspirations. However, destiny had one more twist in store for him. Despite all the hardships he had faced, Ankit received took the decision of going for   Qatar. It was a chance for a fresh start, a glimmer of hope in the midst of darkness. Fueled by his determination to succeed, Ankit accepted the offer and obtained a visa for Qatar.

As the day of his flight approached, tragedy struck Ankit's life. His father, the pillar of his support and love, passed away suddenly. Devastated by the loss, Ankit found himself at a crossroads. He had to make a difficult decision between pursuing his dreams and being there for his family during this difficult time.

In the end, Ankit chose to prioritize his family. He postponed his journey to Qatar and stayed with his loved ones to provide them with the support they needed. It was a decision driven by love and a sense of responsibility, showcasing Ankit's strength of character and maturity.

Years went by, and Ankit found himself reflecting on the lyrics of the Pink Floyd song that seemed to mirror his own experiences. Time had slipped away, and he felt the weight of missed opportunities and dashed hopes. But deep within, a flicker of ambition remained, reminding him that it was never too late to chase his dreams.

Ankit realized that life's journey was unpredictable, filled with challenges and setbacks. However, he also understood that it was his resilience and determination that would define his path. He embraced the lessons learned from his past experiences and used them as stepping stones to forge a brighter future.

With renewed vigor, Ankit embarked on a new chapter of his life. He continued to pursue his education, this time within his own country. He surrounded himself with supportive friends and mentors who believed in his potential. Ankit dedicated himself to personal growth, seizing every opportunity that came his way.

Amidst the passage of time, Ankit's life took a devastating turn. Despite his relentless efforts, he found himself trapped in a seemingly endless cycle of rejections and heartbreak. The weight of his shattered dreams and countless visa rejections began to erode his spirit.

With each rejection, Ankit's hope grew dimmer, and he struggled to find the strength to carry on. The world seemed to conspire against him, as if denying him the chance to escape the confines of his hometown and pursue his ambitions. The constant setbacks gnawed at his soul, leaving him feeling lost and defeated.

As Ankit's career prospects dwindled, he faced the bitter reality that success in his chosen field was slipping through his fingers. He was forced to confront the harsh truth that his dreams might forever remain out of reach. The once bright-eyed and hopeful young man now found himself engulfed in a sea of despair.

Loneliness and regret became his constant companions as he reflected on the hurdles he had faced. The resilience he had once possessed seemed like a distant memory, overshadowed by the overwhelming weight of disappointment. Ankit's journey had transformed from a tale of ambition and determination to one of heartache and unfulfilled potential.

In the depths of his despair, Ankit realized that life's magic spells had become elusive whispers that mocked his aspirations. The beating of his heart, once filled with hope and possibility, now echoed with a hollow emptiness. The once vibrant colors of his dreams had faded, leaving behind a dull and monochromatic existence.

As he looked back on his journey, there was no solace to be found. The story he had envisioned for himself had crumbled, and he struggled to find a new narrative. The starting gun had been missed, and Ankit found himself paralyzed, unable to break free from the chains of his shattered dreams.

An overwhelming sense of futility consumed him, as the passage of time only served to reinforce the futility of his endeavors. The weight of unfulfilled potential grew heavier with each passing day, as the realization of a life unfulfilled settled deep within his soul.

No longer the author of his own story, Ankit felt adrift, carried aimlessly by the currents of a world that had turned its back on him. Purpose and meaning became distant concepts, mere illusions that danced beyond his reach.

In the end, Ankit became a cautionary tale of untapped potential and broken dreams. The relentless pursuit of his ambitions had left him battered and broken, a mere shell of the person he once was. And as the curtain closed on his story, it remained a tragic reminder of the harsh realities and heartbreak that can accompany the pursuit of one's dreams.

From US, Australia, Canada and Qatar he kept trying. He could have stayed and study in India or Nepal. He stayed thirsty while sitting next to river.

I hope this is just a story. Too exaggerated, too forced, too contrived, too dramatic, that's how I felt reading through it. I remember reading the true story of that guy (forgot the name) in Nepal who recently burnt himself down because he was facing rejections, failure after failure and numerous betrayals and blah blah while he struggled for his existence. Reading his open letter was also quite dramatic and then reading this is also, no wonder, quite dramatic!
Usually, humans do not tend to dwell in negative emotions, experiences for long. Almost all of us like to forget our tragic past, failures. My Biology teacher told me the same thing, while learning about all those tough biology jargons. We will mug them up for exams and all but once the class is over, we forget those terminology because they gave us enough scare one time already. This is how human nature is, as he said. But this story is kind of opposing that idea. The main character 'Ankit' is constantly dwelling in the past and wailing in the present.
In reality, it is also quite logical to say that we let go of those kind of emotions that generate negativity. If we store all those stuffs in our brains, then this can clog our lifestyle itself, right? So reading this story is like the writer here is thinking of "all kinds" of tragedies that can fall on a single person. That is why it sounds too exaggerated and dramatic like some old Hindi movies. That person, Ankit should have moved on and looked for other opportunities that he seemed to have missed. Going to US, Canada, Qatar or wherever is not the only thing in life. He did not find the true calling of his life.
I left Nepal too because like I said, I was tired of Maobadis and Nepal Banda, Load shedding and some personal reasons. Had I not gotten the visa, I would have tried something there in Nepal itself. But looking back, I think I prepared my case so well that that the counselors could not deny my application easily. FYI I prepared my whole documentation everything myself unlike now when I see people are paying consultancies to prepare the application case for you.
But still will give some commendation to Xkabhre for pouring out all his frustrations of not being in US like this. Dude, get out of this zone, do something worthwhile for yourself if not for the country.

@Bennediet, this story by Ankit is completely grounded in reality. Have you recently been to Nepal? Perhaps you are unaware of the current unrest among the youth or how the prospect of going abroad is viewed in Nepal nowadays. Nearly everyone in my family and relatives has already settled abroad, leaving only me behind. And this situation isn't unique to my family; it is prevalent throughout Nepal. The craze for going abroad is so extreme that you can only witness it at TIA airport.

You may not be able to fully grasp the situation, but that's not your problem. It's possible that every Nepali who has gone to the US could at least comprehend it, but it seems they are too preoccupied to recognize that this issue is not caused by them, nor do they have any connection to it.

@edv I didn't read the entire story, but it appears that the protagonist in the narrative is European, so I decided not to continue reading it. To be honest, the story may not resonate with people like us who have different immigration systems, because we are from a brown Asian background.

I agree to some of your arguments. I went to Nepal last year and witnessed that. Even in my relative circle, I saw most of the older generations there in Nepal with most of the younger lot abroad. Like when I visited my relatives' houses, I noticed they have like 3-4 storied house built, right and then they have rented out some floors and the others its only the old parents living in one of the floors and that too with several empty rooms there. All the rooms are clean and adorned with photographs and achievement certificates of their kids but the kids and their families nowhere around. Only old couples living in this big house alone!! I kind of got scared for them, what happens in case of emergencies, robberies?
I agree the craze is there for most of the young lot to go abroad and settle there, but you cannot say that every other young person is gone. There are a lot of innovations happening in there too spearheaded by younger lot. Especially in the field of media, online world, movies, TV world. Like last time I found online this studio working from Kathmandu who is making VFX for Hollywood movies, I was like "Really"?? I have seen a couple of my IT friends who are working in multinational IT projects remotely from home itself in Nepal. See there are people like them who are there. Not everyone wants to be abroad, right?
And to say that people like "us" who are abroad already are the motivation factor for newer generation to go abroad, may be it is true to some levels. There may be some connection, but we have to carve our own niche in life brother, not copy somebody else or envy others for what they have.

Just giving a bump to this thread because sajha has been lately consumed by a bunch of copy paste warriors and so called "i know everything, whatever i say is right" type who if gets questioned - easily get triggered, kind of folks.

As @Bennedict said your story is some what true but little bit exaggerated but hey might have really happened to someone.

I wish there are more contents like this in sajha.

if his sole purpose was education he could get education anywhere. Even if he did get visa how was he going manage to study good working 60 - 70 hours. He just wanted to be away from Nepal.
