Someone says second recession is here.

When did the first recession end, in the first place?

No matter where the first one ended and where the second one will start, personally I am not bothered by these developments. I am not saying it will not shake the job demographics but I am ready to work my rear off and ride the wave as it comes. 

My reasoning -

My parents survived on "sukeko khursani" and "dhido" until well over their working lives, and I was obliged to experience it for nearly a quarter century - that was until i came here to the US. My grandfather carted salt packs to Dhankuta from Dharan on foot and the return journey alone, according to what he said, used to take full 7-days those days, all these to make a living and to bring us to this world.

Blessed as I am to be his “naati,” and in that light, if I remember each day the reason for my being here in the US, or why I should be frugal in my spending habits, or why I should reason out my expenses, not be a "makkhichoos," or not benefit at other's expense, or why it is important to extend a helping hand, and be thankful that poor as you are, you have a clean bill of health, these trillions that come and go in this country's expenditure/debt cycle will leave less of an impact on you and me. Not because it is easy, but the pain subsides that much more and lifts your spirits a little lighter.

I have seen Nepalis who cannot pay their 10K credit balance, accrued through tuition and million other reasons, head out to a bar every single weekend. I have seen others ensnared in the debt trap yet so eager to live life well beyond their financial means. I hate to do that part of mathematics for them.

I have waited tables, worked as a janitor, cleaned miles of high-rise lobbies and survived slaving on a zillion gas stations, with my head held high and with a sense of pride that at the end of each day I returned to my “dera” with a wee bit of financial security - something that Nepal in its Buddha-Ra-Mt.Everest-Nepal-Bhitra-Chaa attitude never accorded to over 90% of its citizens, including my parents and some of yours.

So come what may, tax raise or bumps, recession or remuneration, I am with this country riding the financial wave as it comes and will see how it goes from there.

What do you think?

myann i literally had to pause for a while to take a breath while going through this line
" Blessed as I am to be his “naati,” and in that light, if I remember each day the reason for my being here in the US, or why I should be frugal in my spending habits, or why I should reason out my expenses, not be a "makkhichoos," or not benefit at other's expense, or why it is important to extend a helping hand, and be thankful that poor as you are, you have a clean bill of health, these trillions that come and go in this country's expenditure/debt cycle will leave less of an impact on you and me"
