Num is barely 40 km away if we travel along the Koshi Highway from Khandbari – the district headquarters of Sankhuwasabha, yet it takes more than 5 hours to travel between these two locations in this season. People are suffering, our vehicles are suffering, productive time is suffering. The road is deteriorating every day, and many to blame but we are forced to travel in such destitute condition. I can’t imagine what happens if there is any medical emergency case. We are not allowed to get ill here. This highway is supposed to upgrade the lifestyle of people here, supposed to connect both China and India to bolster our trade and business – nonetheless it is waiting for its opportunity and potential.
