He gave us a writing of himself which was published on'The Republica' and asked us few questions to answer after reading that. Many of the participants seemed to be puzzled. In breakout room 8, there were two participants,Vishnu Bhandari sir and I . We discussed and  responded what we got.

At around 8:45, he left us telling that he had to join the another session for SOS. Then there was another discussion among the Gulmeli teachers. There were hardly 18. We discussed on how to move ahead. Many of the teachers asked Madhukar Pandey, the host, to run the classes from very basic stage rather than the academic ones. I also supported the view. We also discussed on starting a blog in English by ourselves. I doubted on it!but told to support anyone to create a blog. Madhu sir told that we would paid version. It is also very good. The discussion ended without any fixed decision, just by agreeing on meeting next Saturday. 

After the meeting, we had brunch and Basu joined another session on 'Nepali Subject'. It continued till 4. I also joined here and there throughout the day. 

In the evening, at about 8:30, we had supper and than watched TV fro sometimes. Then Bunu and Basu slept, I started writing this blog dairy.

137the Day of Pandemic

Saun 23rd, Friday

2077

This morning was also not different that the last one. When I left the bed, it had been 7:30AM. Along with me I made Bunu to get up. Then we got fresh and had tea. After that Bunu started doing her homework. That's to write the domestic/ wild and water animals' name. Basu started cooking.

At 9:45 AM, we had meal and then I left the room for school. At school, I did the usual work of the Webinar. As it was  the 3rd [Final] day of 3 day webinar, I was busy as a host. I prepared attendance form, program schedule and got the gadgets ready. 

But as we approached the starting time, Ram Hari sir had to use my laptop as his didn't work properly. With his laptop, I hardly handled the hosting section with the help of my co-hosts such as Sarsawati, Krishna Panth and Bashudev sir. 

In the last day there were two presentations of Bishwa Raj Gautam and Vaishali Pradhan respectively. Then after, there was a panel discussion where Vishnu Prasad Bhandari and Bashudev  Ghimire sir moderated the panel and the panelists were Dr. Jai Raj Awasti, Dr. Laxman Gnawali, Ms. Meera Shrestha and Ms. Sunita Swar Suri. \

The discussion was on Teachers' Professional Development and there was a  smoothly collaboration among the panelists though they were representing 3 different generations. The webinar completed at 7PM. Then, after setting up the gadgets, we went to Wok &  Pan for the review meeting of the webinar, but there we didn't discuss much about the webinar rather we discussed about other people, had heavy snacks and left the place at 9 PM.

I came to the room, till then Bunu and Basu had already eaten and watching TV. I had no room for meal so I also joined them after being fresh. We watched the TV for sometimes and then I started writing this diary.

136th Day of Pandemic

Saun 22nd, Thursday
2077

Today too the daily schedule was the same. As it was the 2nd day of NELTA Gulmi, I had a hectic routine but I didn't get up early. After leaving the bed at 7 AM, I started sending mails and links to the presenters, participants and the guest as well. 

After having meal, I went to school and continued my work. From 2:50 PM, the job of host started. I found this job really boring and monotonous. You can't even listen and watch the presentations as you have to just admit, mute, unmute, check the chat and have to chat yourself. I was also stuck on those works. 

The second day sessions ended at 6:30 though they had been scheduled to finish at 5! After that we had a short review meeting and had snacks. Hari sir was also staying with us. After that we returned to the room. 
After having  meal, I started doing my online activities such as preparing for the attendance, making program schedule and so on. After the completion of those task, I started writing this diary.

135the Day Of Pandemic

Saun 21, Wednesday
2078

It was the very hectic day. Though I did not wake up earlier, I was too busy after getting up at 7. As from today NELTA Gulmi is organizing a 3 day webinar on the theme'NEW DIMENSION IN ELT', and I was in the position of host. I have to do a lot of preparation. So after having tea, I started sending the registration form and invitation to the participants and the presenters as well.

After having meal, I went to school and got stuck on the same task till it was 2:50. Then my real job started. It was quite different to work in piratical life than seeing others doing. We, Krishna Panth sir and I were nearly out of breath to admit the participants and controlling the technical part. Initially, it was a bit messy, but later on it was ok. 

Though the time was allocated from 3 to 5, it ended about 6:30 PM. While participating as a single participant is far more easier than being host. I exhausted by the end of the first day sessions. After sometime, there was a review meeting but it was just confined with having snack at 7:30 PM. Then with a short discussion for tomorrow, we got separated. 

I came to the room around 8 and after having supper, I started writing this diary.

There was some mistake on the flyer, I hardly edited it, deleted the posted one and posted the edited one again with the link. Along with the task, I kept on peeping the number of registered participants, till now it has been just 165. Let's hope it will cross 200 til tomorrow. With the hope of having maximum participants, I wrote this diary.

At school, I guided Hari sir and Durga sir to use zoom and google. I also re-emailed to the local bodies as there was some mistake in the previous one regarding the date of the program. Then there was a welcome program to Mr.Loknath Marasini, the chief of Education Development and Coordination Unit, Gulmi and Mr. Bishnu Prasad Gyawali, the education officer of Education, Youth and Sports Division , Resunga Municipality. I acted a the MC in the program. 

After that, there was a pre-scheduled program of NELTA Gulmi Branch, Pre-Webinar. I was the host. I started that at exactly 3 till the end of 40 minutes there were only 11 or 12 people so I had to restart the meeting. In the second round the program took a formal track. There too, I had to speak on the technicality and the tips and tricks of using zoom. 

Then again I restarted it for the third time and the program ended. After that too, we, Sarswati ma'am and I talked on the various issues. Then at 6 I returned to the room rounding Tamghas bazaar on my bike. 
In the room, I had two bananas as snacks and started online training from STFT Pyuthan. Then at 7:45 I joined another from STFT Rasuwa.

At around 10:20, we had it and I started online activities such as YouTube, Facebook, blog, website  visit and edit/ update and so on. 

Bunu kept on playing with her friends throughout the day, Basu and didi went to bari to collect the vegetable. I just kept on surfing the net till 4. Then they came and I made chatarmatar and we had. It was too hot.
