79th Day of Lock Down

Jestha 28, Wednesday2077

Today, I did not miss the news. I could also give time to the BBC and went to buy mutton to Chandra Daiko Masu Pasal with Bunu after having tea. We had to wait for more than half an hour. After coming to the room, Basu started cooking. I guided my daughter to do her Nepali homework. Until she finished her homework I did some stuff on internet alongside helping her in need. At about 10:15 we had masubhat. Then I joined the online class from Tanahu where there was a session on Google tools. I have some knowledge about that so I didn't pay much attention to it and went to school as DB sir had called me to guide the carpenter to make some computer tables for the lab.  I went there around 11:30 and guided them. The observed the school building and commuter lab building sites.

 After that, I started preparing students' class and section-wise detail to send for the Microsoft learning management system. It took me about 2 hours. We had a mini-meeting at school. There were we four DB sir, Yubraj sir, Khimkali ma'am, and I. We planned to call a zoom meeting tomorrow morning at 11 and plan further. During the period, I joined two online classes from NELTA Banke and STFT Rupandehi. In Banke, Laxman Gyawali sir was facilitating in making youtube channel and its usage in teaching-learning whereas in Rupandehi, Miti Raj Gautam facilitated in preparing ledgers sheet, grade sheet and so on in ms excel. I found the latter one more fruitful for me as I had already created a youtube channel. 

At about 4:30 I returned to the room and Bunu and Basu proposed to go to Thumka for an evening walk. We started our journey at 5 and reached there at 5:30.  Though I have been living in Tamghas since 2057 BS, it was the first time, I reached there. It was very nice. It can be developed into a very nice and attractive park, but who cares? We spent almost 35 minutes there and returned back. After returning back I recharged the internet through Esewa and joined a class from STFT Palpa. There too, Tika Gautam Utsuk was taking a class about blogging. It ended at 7:30. Then I helped Basu in cooking and we had supper at 8:30. Bunu and Basu slept, Bunu hardly sleeps so early so she is still doing here and there, I am writing this blog.
