  • We went to Shanta Nepali's house to meet her after hearing about her condition who is a striker for the Waling women's team and who grew up playing football on this field. When Neplays team arrived to see her, they were heartbroken to learn of her predicament. Shanta and her family had been living in a small hut for years. When they entered the house, which appeared to be cramped from the outside, they felt even more tragic. There were only two rooms where her old parents, her brother, and Shanta were able to make a living.

Apart from the three divisional teams in Nepali women's football, Waling Football Club is a newcomer. Waling received a lot of praise for her performance in the Women's National League a few months ago. However, when hearing about the situation of Shanta Nepali, a member of the same team, eyes well up with tears. Waling has produced many male and female players. The grief of all the players is not like Shanta's. There is always a crowd of people playing football at the Bagar football ground above the Andhikhola flowing near the Waling Bazaar, which is dominated by the families of Lahure people and traders from different countries.

We went to Shanta Nepali's house to meet her after hearing about her condition who is a striker for the Waling women's team and who grew up playing football on this field. When Neplay’s team arrived to see her, they were heartbroken to learn of her predicament. Shanta and her family had been living in a small hut for years. When they entered the house, which appeared to be cramped from the outside, they felt even more tragic. There were only two rooms where her old parents, her brother, and Shanta were able to make a living.

Her house, which can be flooded even after heavy rains, will be uninhabitable for an extended period of time. She had been told to leave by the landowner a long time ago. They are, however, living in the same place due to a lack of a suitable location. Various medals and arcade cards she had won were hung in Shanta's living room, and some were placed in inboxes.

Shanta's family was looking for a new home after transitioning from working in someone else's house to working as a carpenter. Shanta's income is the family's primary source of income, as she has been involved in football since childhood. Santa has been awake all night, pondering what to do with her family. Shanta, who earns between 500 and 700 rupees per day, is concerned about her residence at the moment.

She hasn't been able to devote herself to football or work well because of the situation of her family. She is torn between worrying about work while playing football and worrying about not being able to play football after finished working. Similarly, her father's blood pressure has dropped twice. She used to have time to go play football when her father was a little better and had a little more money, but now she doesn't have as much time.

Shanta, who aspired to be a national player, was unable to participate in the U-18 tournament due to family obligations. Shanta, who wants to play football, claims that becoming a player will help her financially, but she currently works in carpentry.

The landlord has already told her family to seek other options. Shanta informed Coach Dilip of her predicament, and Coach Dilip, who has made significant contributions to the development of football in Waling and has been the coach of the women's football team for the last time since the beginning of the sport in Waling, promised to help her. But, despite his assurances, it was not easy to help. Dilip, on the other hand, received approval from the Waling Municipality after a long struggle i.e. Santa would be given extra room to sit on top of the public restroom adjacent to the football field.

Shanta is busy building her shelter on the public toilet next to the field while the other players are playing football. She is also assisting her family to make her family feel comfortable in making their home. She believes that the only remaining option for constructing the shelter is to obtain a loan from somewhere. Even that, however, is not yet resolved.

However, there is another issue: because there is no regular income, how will the loan be repaid in the future? She has no idea how much it will cost to construct a home. Santa, who has lived in misery since childhood, has still maintained her bravery.

"I was hoping to get something by playing football," Shanta says. I still haven't been able to obtain it. I haven't even received any kind of help yet. I have to think about my family even while playing football.

The pain on her face was reflected as she sat next to others playing on Waling's field. Perhaps she had imagined in her mind that if her family had been better off, she would have been playing regular football like this.

Perhaps Shanta and her family's grief would have been lessened if someone had stepped forward to soothe the pain.

Here is a Story of Shanta Nepali
