The Ways of Boudha’s Water

“The landscape of Boudha has changed drastically in the last 20 years. Fields turned into concrete houses; streams turned into streets; and rivers turned into roads. The khahares were converted into sewage drains.” writes Minket Lepcha in The changing nature of Boudha’s relationship with water. Based on her work, the upcoming discussion seminar will explore rivers and waterways, with a focus on Boudha. How have they been encroached upon and what are the consequences of doing so?

The discussion seminar will be a full day session, moderated by Sabin Ninglekhu. Presentations and discussions will take place in a mix of Nepali and English. Participants are requested to stay for the entire session. Participation is free however limited to 25 and by registration only on a first come first serve basis. Lunch will be provided.
