6. Write a story about someone who does something unusual, and who is disliked for it.
I reside in a systematic accommodation. We have organized society and community in this town though we migrated from the hilly region of country. All the members of this dwelling area are docile and co-operative. But I have noticed some of the activities and manners of one of the senior members is unusual.
When I encounter with him in this periphery, he speaks less but he seems very introvert. People hardly go into his bangalow. Last week there was function in our neighborhood. All the residents were gathering on the grand occasion to honour the elderly couple who had crossed 106 years. But I noticed the very person participated for a moment and hurriedly went into his residence. His get up was also peculiar one. Some personal guests used to visit him often. No one had any doubt about him. He was a social to all.
As I saw a girl entered into his residence in the evening, we were sitting outside of the building. We planned to know about his reality of life. I discussed with other three people and decided to enter into his home. To our surprise, he had affair with that teenage girl. Actually he was widower for five years. We became surprised looking all that. We had an ideal view to that respected gentleman but he had made his pious building a brothel.
Then we called the meeting of all community members and discussed about that unusual behaviour of that middle fifties years old man. We decided to warn not to repeat such evil deeds again. As we made him agree to reject such habits, we signed bi-laterally. It was really shocking experience I have ever felt in my two decade’s stay in the town.

Roles of Men and Women
In the name of modernism and development, there have occurred a number of changes in the ways we live our life. In other words, the traditions and culture have been evolved differently for last few years. Similarly, the roles of men and women have also been drastically changed during some decades.
Our country Nepal is mostly guided by patriarchal and partly matriarchal systems. So, there seems a shift in the level and traditions of behaving and providing respect to female. There was big question raised while matter of female education was in discussion before few years. Now, more women are normally encouraged to have access of the education. Most of females were not allowed to have jobs and busy in various professions but now the situation has been changed. Awareness level is developed as well as only males hardly sustain the family.
As to discuss about position of women in the family (basically) and in the community, it has faced radical change. Previously, only males used to decide to have begotten children, to have made decisive decisions and all business dealings of any family. But at present, women’s words are also accountable i.e. women’s views are also included. In few decades back love marriages used to be rejected. If any women dared to adopt love marriage, it was normally rejected by society. But now selecting would be husband and wife there is almost freedom to men and women as the guardians to their children or as marriageable candidates.
Another aspects of changing role exercised in our day to day life is how to address to our parents. Previously, mother was called as Amma and father was called Baba and grandparents used to be called as Baje and Bajai. But Gradually granpa, granny, Pa, Dad, Mom are in use. From personal dignity perspective to overall social position the roles of men and women seem gradually shifting.
In social institutions, political sectors and polices formation zones more and more women have presentation in comparison to past. Thus, we hardly find similar roles they have to play at present as in few years back.

There are different natures of business. Some businesses are run systematically in sophistically built infrastructures.

Supermarkets are conducted or established in the systematic buildings having a lot of choices of goods within same roof the customers can purchase what they like. One advantage of such business is time saving. Customers need not to wander here and there in search of demanded products. But there can be disadvantages of such centers. Public have no bargaining while buying goods. There is comparatively higher the cost of goods. They are higher in size and decoration having facilities of parking, dining, and taking rest. Anyone who wishes to buy something or doesn’t buy can make a visit. Many people make trip there though not to buy anything.
On the other hand, small shops are set up with low investment because supermarkets need huge investment and grand plans. But to conduct small shops we can set them up anywhere we feel comfortable. It costs low investment and can be easier to run too. This is normal shop run individually having less number of manpower but supermarkets require a lot of working force. Though small shops have limited amount of products they are fresh and newly brought goods. They are not stored and displayed long time as in supermarket. Sometimes stale and defects things can be found there.
Small shops have low-duration products sometimes and anyone can buy in bargaining process. Individual face to face bargaining is not used in case of supermarket shopping since there is record and machine counted selling and watched by CC TV. Thus, both business locations can have advantages and drawbacks in providing their services.
