Guru, 17, was living peacefully with her parents, three elder sisters, a brother at Kimti village in Mugu. Her family members were laborious and earning their livelihood by hard working in their own land. Guru was reading in class three near her home. Their peaceful heaven started to be disturbed when the Maoist armed rebellion began to loom over deeper fold of Mugu district. The rebel often came to their home for money, food and force to join her family members in their side. They forced Guru’s brother to include in their militia telling him to quit his class ten study. Similarly, they forced her sisters to join the military training centre somewhere in the depth of forest. As their aggression increased over their village, Guru’s parents thought it was preferable to go mad to die. As a result, the family fled to district headquarter Gamgadhi to escape their trouble. Gamgadhi came under threat of Maoist strike, the family fled to Jumla seeking better place. The means of livelihood badly troubled Guru’s family. Her parents decided to come Kathmandu.

No sooner they landed Kathmandu, the problem of hand to mouth was following them. They looked for work but did not find any work. They found work of household chores and very low paid job in domestic line which could not be any help to her family. Thinking carpet weaving an independent and skilled job, the family joined a carpet factory nevertheless it was not much different than earlier one. While working in carpet factory she often fell ill owning to stuffy and congested environment of weaving room. She fell ill several times but the family could not afford her medicine. In such as miserable condition, Good Weave inspector met her there and brought to Good weave rehabilitation centre on March 26, 2004. Most of the time, the scare of Maoist abduction haunted her throughout her stay in carpet factory.

Guru is devoted, diligent, studious and disciplined student. She was selected best student in her class and transferred to Little Angel’s School. Now, she has passed SLC examination from LA in first division with 74%. She dreams to be a doctor. She is very happy and grateful to Good Weave for giving opportunity to study there. We wish her dream come true.
