Lalitpur - It was Bhimkumari Magar's most embarrassing moment when other women laughed at her inability to speak English properly at a workshop on women's empowerment. It was a program for Nepalis, but everyone started introducing themselves in English for the benefit of their American facilitator. As Magar struggled to introduce herself in English, the elegant ladies taking part all burst into laughter. As it happens, Magar is a grassroots politician. The program, jointly organised by the American Centre and Kathmandu College of Management, brought together women participants from both urban areas and remote villages. While the program presenter and facilitators spoke in English, rural women politicians with no English skills had to sit quietly through it all and try to figure out what was happening.
