Answer - Yes, some events happened similar to the one in the story to one of my neighbors. In our village, there was an old couple living in a house for a long time. The couple said that they had two sons who were living". Kathmandu with their respective families. Both of their sons had moved to Kathmandu for better work opportunities. They invited the parents to Kathmandu but the couples were accustomed to living in the village. The sons and their families initially visited the couple later, as time passed, the visits were limited, and Tesser. Once, the father was sick and they didn't earn. So, this makes them sell their house. The sons in the city were nav the many years, they visited the couple and knew about the situation. They felt guilty and bought back the house. After that, visits from the sons and families were often.

C. Recall the time that you first danced. Share your experience with your friends.
Answer - When I was in school, I danced for the first time. We once celebrated the school's anniversary and parents' day with various cultural programs. Our dance instructors used to teach us various dances to both classical and contemporary music. Around Grade V, I and my friends were selected to perform a dance to a popular Nepali song at the school's anniversary. We practiced our moves while dressed in traditional Nepali attire. We performed our song on stage using a lot of hand and leg motions. We had a lot of fun, and the audience loved it. I, however, unluckily fell and broke the ankle of my right leg while performing the dance's final step. And, due to that incident, I had to take a break for more than three months.

Writing II
In Nepali culture, there are many occasions people dance. The Gurung
The community has Rodhighars, the Rai Community celebrates Chandi Naach,
etc. Write a couple of paragraphs about any one of the dancing cultures or
traditions in your community.

Answer - In the Gurung community of Nepal, Rodhi is a club for young people, typically in the 10–11 age range. It is the perfect place for entertainment while being watched over by an adult. The adult, a mature male or female for the boys and girls, voluntarily lends a hand and permits them to stay in her/his home as a dorm. Then, this residence is known as Rodhi. Those who are in Rodhi stay together until they are either married or 17 or 18 years old. 12 to 15 members make up the majority of the group. Typically, the entire Rodhi group works together in the fields or travels together to gather wood from the forest. One Rodhi may occasionally ask another to assist them in the fields.

Project work
Remember a situation in which you were a participant in a cultural show like Dohori Sanjh or a public show like a comedy show. Narrate your experiences including what special event you want to recall, how you happened to join it, who you went with, etc. in your class.
Answer -
I once performed in a public comedy show rather than just watching it. Oh my goodness, that took a while. In fact, my teacher, friends, and I used to perform short comedic skits in our classroom. One day, one of my teachers invited me to participate in and attend a public comedy show. Although I was unsure of my abilities, the idea was supported by all of my teachers and friends. I thus gave it a shot. I neglected to turn on the mic when I first entered the stage because I was so anxious. It felt strange! However, I began the performance with a joke about that occurrence, and the audience erupted in laughter. I was then incredibly relieved. The performance was then seamless all the way through. Following that, I began giving skits at various local events, and I'm still learning as I go.
