My father is a mathematics teacher and everyone presumed that I also have a bright mind like my father. But the truth was quite bitter. Even though I was brought up with all the facilities a child could get, still I was an average student. This was my parents’ deepest despondency. I was a student with good knowledge and memory, but my indolence always dragged me to average standard.
It was in the beginning of 2010. I graduated to tenth grade, the senior year of the school. My emotions were driven by both anxiety and exultation. Since the final score in the tenth grade was a yardstick of our knowledge-gained and hard-work done throughout our schooling, all of us were concerned. However, the feeling of freedom after the tenth grade kept us elated. Those memories are quite vivid in my memory.
Since the frequency of graduating students elevates the reputation of a school, we had coaching classes in the early misty morning. The idea of coaching class was to build analytical skills by not focusing only on the academic realm. Based on a student’s level of understanding, we were categorized into smaller sections for coaching. Students with the best grasp were selected in Group-E. We used to call the group, “Group of Excellence”. Students with lower understanding were selected in other sections, namely, D (Determined), C (Can do), B (Bashful) and A (Apathetic).

My tenth grade not only taught me the academic lessons but also many life-lessons. Now, I am disciplined, devoted and dedicated to my study materials. These days I don’t get enough time as before to study because of my work life, but I still turn pages for three to four hours daily. I also learned no one can be trusted wholeheartedly. From that day, I make my decisions based on evidences, not on hoaxes and gossips. Egos and jealousy have a new meaning for me. In my opinion, the intention of action makes them look different. My tenth grade became a stepping stone to where I am right now. Studying in the United States is a dream for every Nepalese student. Now I am living those dreams, studying what I always loved, Physics and Mathematics.

- Hutu Power was a movement that encouraged Hutu solidarity (Des Forges, pp.4). The movement gained support by depicting Tutsis as relentless dominators—a fear of many Hutus. Capitalizing on the movement, it was suggested that Hutu civilians be armed to fight against the Tutsis (Des Forges, pp.5). Many Hutus were enthusiastic to participate in a “civilian defense force”, thus, indicating an expansion of latent prejudice within the fabric of Rwandan civil life into active persecutory measures. The Media: A Turning Point The media reinforced the negative views on Jews and Tutsis, with the concept of Hutu Power in relation to anti-Tutsi prejudice and the concept of Judeo-Bolshevism in relation to...
