Episode 8: दिन पनि गाह्रो, लिन पनि गाह्रो
“दिन पनि गाह्रो, लिन पनि गाह्रो OR the art of giving/receiving compliments.” Our quest of finding answers to the above statement led us to loiter on compliments. We are pretty sure this has been a hustle for you as well! How to give good compliments and how to more importantly gracefully receive and own compliments? We were curious about these questions at the beginning of this journey to understand more deeply our relationship with compliments. With time many of you joined us in this journey and told us compliments that make you feel happy, joyful, sad, irritated……… Guess we figured it out or did we? Listen to the episode to find out what makes a compliment reach marginal utility!

Episode 7: Culture Shock“The paper planes in the drawing are to define we belong somewhere. We never know where the paper planes land though sometimes we decide where it should land. We decide and dream our lives to live in a certain way but we never know what comes forth as the time passes by. Everybody keeps running back and forth searching a place where they belong, their home. The paper planes flies to the direction of wind, likewise, human lives moves along with the flow of time - sometimes, uncertain and undecided”, says Yesung while tuning Ep. 7.

Ep. 6: अनि तपाई के गर्नु हुन्छ? "Episode on Work-life"This time we are going from “बसी बसाई” to “अनि तपाई के गर्नु हुन्छ?” This episode is for everybody who has been thinking about how to maintain a work-life balance. We bring a lot of strengths to our work - whether that be our ability to balance differing perspectives, our ability to lead, our ability to see new solutions, our ability to deliver under pressure, our ability to energize those around us, and many many others. Even so, our work identity is only one of multiple identities we inhabit in this world. We have many other selves: as a family member, as a friend, as a citizen, as a member of chosen groups. The world tries to force us to focus on the work self over everything else. What are the ways in which we resist this (sometimes subtle, sometimes not so subtle) demand? We would love to hear back from you too <3. Write to us, rate us on different platforms, and shower us with comments and voice notes. Have a restful week

Episode 5: Rescuing JoyThings that give us joy. Little things, big things. Stationery, barbecue, the first flower in spring, beautiful clothes…especially when given by a loved one. Sometimes, things that give us joy get buried in the mountain of things we end up collecting, and we find them one day when cleaning out our space. In our minds as well, things that give us joy get buried among the demands and stresses of daily living - this episode is a call to rescue the joy that lies waiting for us in and around us.

Episode 4: माया त माया हो* … सर्त लागु छैन्June is Pride month. Pride Month is an entire month dedicated to uplifting LGBTQIA voices, celebrating LGBTQIA culture and supporting LGBTQIA rights. A month जहाँ entire year पर्दा पछाडी पारिएका stories and eventsको लर्को लाग्छन् and त्यही लर्कोमा हामी पनि थपिएका छौँ। In this episode we talk about love. We hear a lot of coming out stories, the preparation, the anticipation, the hopes and the eventual aftermath - a story that sometimes ends in tears, and sometimes in hugs. Navigating through several experiences, we wanted to look at the other side. The loved one that the queer person is coming out to: Who are they? What social expectations might be causing them to react the way they do? And, are there resources that could support them to show up with love, and care? आखिर माया त माया होनी <3

Episode 1: Break UpsOur first episode is here! We start off the UtarChadhav series with a conversation on breakups. Break Ups are difficult. We grieve the loss of so many possibilities, yet, that pain is not acknowledged in the spaces and conversations around us. There is no word for "break up" in Nepali - and when the word doesn't exist, sometimes it is almost as if the experience itself does not exist. But we all know that that is not true. Around us, we see breakups happen all the time, but we do not have the spaces or the language to support expression of this important experience. Talking about the experience that has no name is tough, to say the least. Here at Utar Chadhav, we are trying to create a little more space for that conversation. ब्रेक अप गाह्रो छ। हामी धेरै सम्भावनाहरू गुमाएकोमा शोक गर्नु पनि जायज छ। ब्रेक अप नै हुँदैन भन्ने परिपाटीको नेपाली समाजको शव्दकोषमा पनि ब्रेक अपको वास्तविक नेपाली शव्द नै छैन। यतिकै पनि ब्रेक अपको बारेमा कुरा गरिने सहज वातावरण नै छैन र झन शव्द नै नभएको अनुभवलाई व्यक्त गर्न त्यसै पनि कठीन । कुरा गरिनु पर्छ भन्ने विश्वासले हामीले हाम्रो पोडकास्टको शुरुवात ब्रेकअप एपिसोडबाट गर्यौँ।
