    However, it is yet to be confirmed whether Shrestha and other members of the expedition team ascended to the top of the mountain.

    The post Colorful Desires and Colorless Culture – Seto Dharti 10 Years Later appeared first on Nepali Sansar.

    Seto Dharti, one of the most important books in modern literature, turns 10 this year.

    The book follows the story of a child widow who goes through numerous hardships in her life.

    Tara was born on the day of the 1990 B.S. earthquake – one of the worst earthquakes in the country’s history, which Gandhi claimed as a providential retribution for India’s failure to eradicate untouchability.

    The first main event that happens in the book is Tara’s wedding. Getting married at the age of seven was seen as a norm rather than an exception during that time. And so a child unaware of what it means to be married is wedded. So, with this bit of trickery from her parents, Tara unknowingly starts her married life, bringing color red to her life.

    In our culture, red is not just symbolic for married women but is integral for any form of celebration and worship. Following her marriage, Tara’s life follows the monotonous labor of rural area that relies on sustenance farming.

    Two years after her marriage Tara is widowed.

    Seto Dharti Book

    The ideas of purity and impurity are central to our culture with even people and their actions being seen as pure/impure and auspicious/inauspicious.

    Mensuration and childbirth are two of the incidents which make women impure and untouchable in our culture, barring them from kitchens, and any religious and cultural places.

    On top of this, widowhood makes a woman permanently impure and inauspicious. Not being allowed to be married again in the future, and excluded from almost all festivals and ceremonies, widowhood does literally takes all colors out of their life along with forcing them to clad in white clothes for the rest of their life.

    Returning home after widowhood gives Tara a semblance of hope – she can live like a son, her mother says. But tragedy again befalls her in the form of her mother’s death which is followed by her father’s second marriage to a child.

    Despite not having any kids of her own, Tara is the primary caretaker for her younger brothers until she does not feel comfortable in her father’s house anymore and at the age of 33 years, leaves for Devghat.

    Devghat is a place people go to devote their lives to spiritual pursuits. The concept of Sannyas is an old tradition in our culture, meaning purification of everything in Sanskrit.

    To quote Bhagavad Gita, “He is known as a permanent Sannyasin who does not hate, does not desire, is without dualities.” Hence, this action by Tara can be seen as the fulfilment of both the need for purification and the renouncement of desires.

    Seto Dharti Story

    But Tara’s feelings portray anything but this. At the beginning of the journey, all she desires is for her brother to come calling for her, to stop her from going. And throughout the journey, she has other desires, as she continues hoping and fantasizing for an alternative to where she is going.

    She fantasizes about marrying a fellow traveller, becoming a wife, and taking a different life path than the one she is travelling towards.

    Throughout her young adulthood, we see Tara pondering about her desire for love, sex, and relationships.

    Human desire is said to be the fundamental motivation of all human actions and even in our own religious textbook Rig Veda, desire is said to be the first seed of minds. But despite this, personal desire is seen as something that needs to be repressed or sacrificed in our culture, specifically in the period that follows the main protagonist of our book Tara.

    Tara suffers through almost all of the social evils that our country’s women of that time had to suffer. It might have been a melodramatic sob story about misery had it not been realistic for a woman to happen during that time.

    Along with Tara’s story, the novel follows the lives of two other women whose story arcs seem to be there just to tell us how Tara’s lives would have been in different cases.

    Yamuna, Tara’s friend who is still married embodies the life that Tara might have lived had her husband not died and the plot of her fellow child widow, Pabitra, embodies the life that Tara might have made for herself had she not shackled herself to the expectations of the society and given into all her desires and pleasures.

    All three women do go through their share of trials and tribulations and end up in the same place in their old age almost if to showcase the inevitable rigidity that the society had provided to these women.

    Colorless

    The novel always draws a parallel between the colorless and harsh life of Tara and the colorful fantasies and desires that she has for herself.

    Through our modern lens, her desires do not seem outrageous or even unreasonable at any point but it seems impossible for any of them to come true for Tara. While Pabitra may be seen at the surface level as someone who did extract herself from the shackles of patriarchy but would we have felt that way if we had followed her journey as closely as we followed Tara’s?

    According to an analysis published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) Open underscored the prevalence of sex-selective abortions and missing girls in Nepal.

    The report estimated that one in 50 girl births were missing in the 2011 population census of Nepal, implying that they have been aborted. A total of 22,540 girl births were missing in the five years before the 2011 population census.

    The researchers found that 11 districts have significantly skewed Sex Ratios at Birth (SRB) in the 2011 population census. Arghakhanchi is the most affected district with the highest SRBs (127), followed by Bhaktapur (SRB=123). One in six female births were missing in Arghakhanchi.

    Moreover, the analysis revealed that sex-selective abortion was geographically concentrated around Kathmandu Valley and Lumbini Province, with 53% of missing girls found in only 11 out of 75 districts.

    Save Girl

    As per the analysis, in the Kathmandu valley, around 115 males are born for every 100 females. However, researchers estimated that without sex selection only 105 males would be born for every 100 females.

    The researchers said that the sex selection would persist and increase in Nepal unless a coordinated effort is made. They advised the Nepali Government to introduce policies that are holistic and encompass economic and legal gender equity. The scientists also requested the government to strengthen monitoring mechanisms to prevent technology misuse, without jeopardizing the right to safe, free and legal abortion.

    “As fertility falls and urbanization increases, there is more access to prenatal sex identification technology in Nepal,” said Melanie Channon, the study’s lead author from the University of Bath’s Department of Social and Policy Sciences.

    “Our study shows some of the impact this has had over recent years, and we expect there will be a ‘trickle-down’ of ability to select the sex of a baby from the wealthiest and most educated as the technology becomes more widely available and more affordable. Put simply and starkly, without concerted effort, there will be an increase in sex-selective abortions in Nepal,” she added.

    According to United Nations Population Fund, around 140 million women are believed to be missing globally. Some areas have seen around 25% more male births than female births.

    International Women’s Day: History and Significance

    The history of International Women’s Day traces back to 1910, when Clara Zetkin, a 20th century Marxist from Germany, proposed at a conference that Women’s Day be celebrated in every country on February 28. The conference comprising of around 100 women from 17 countries unanimously approved the suggestion.

    Women’s Day was first observed on February 28, 1911. Two years later, in 1913, the Socialist Party of America changed the date to March 8, and it continues to be celebrated as such every year.

    NepaliSansar Wishes All the Women A Happy Women’s Day. Remember, You’re Special!
