In dilemma always, what does it’s mean “I am a power shifter”, I am literally searching the meaning whether its reflecting to shift energy or any other thing. On the first day, I was searching the venue of the program, as I my mind is new to the places of Kathmandu. I asked few people on the way about the location, in the mean time I saw the group of girls standing on the road looking here and there, I asked them too, they replied that they were also searching same thing which I was for ??
The next day we were called at NTB, Bhirkutimandap to leave for Nagarkot for the next session. As I was the only one from Pokhara to attend the training, people were amazed asking me “u came from Pokhara to attend the program” It was like confused Confucius !!!! Truly i came to know very few people on the first day of the training and I was expecting that we will be introduced on the beginning of the session. Beyond expectation, very new way of introduction calling WHOO…HAAA, making two circle, rotating in the clockwise direction introducing each other .That’s how our next session start in different venue CHRDU. Entered Sagarmatha hall, discussed about the impacts that we are facing since few years and the adapting and mitigating measures of climate change, Everyone turned mute at the moment, What would I do if when the world demands for me like everyone else? Will I be able to be someone else not me as I am now? And what if I don’t? Abolished from the face of the earth? These were the question triggered me to act as a power shifter!! There were about 85 youth divided into different groups to proceed the discussion as well as to formulate the action plan for the next two months under different themes such as ecofriendly behavior. alternative energy, ecofriendly tourism, research and policy, drama/documentation.
Besides attending session and discussion, dancing ,singing, campfire ,chitchatting till midnight were the random moments in the program. On the last day we, participants formulated the action plan and presented among all. By the time we changed into the” power shifter ”.I came to know Power shifter is nothing more it’s about disseminating ideas and knowledge to other youth, making chain of network in the community ,country and in turn across the globe.Now i am ready for power shift!!!!!
