‘The earthquake was God’s decision and we need to accept that’

‘I was a devout Hindu. I have a new identity now’

“I was a devout Hindu. But when the earthquake destroyed everything I possessed, I was forced to live in a tent with families from other communities. I lost my religious identity. Like my new friend Aarti, who is a Christian from Pulchowk, I have a new identity now. We are both victims. We share the same grief.”
