Hi, I am Parbati Shrestha from Nepal. My homeland is Nepal. Yes, before I leave my country I used to think that land is farmland where we have to work for our existence. Now, I have experienced that what is the meaning of land. I think land is our identity. On 14th August 2009 I with my Nepalese friends flew from Nepal to Bangladesh. When we arrived there, it was different land and we were standing as Nepalese people with different identity. New peoples, new languages, new culture and the new environment all things were introducing with us showing their identity that it is Bangladesh. Furthermore, I attended my first class where I met friends from different countries. The teacher asked “Where are you from?” Actually, that question was trying to stick out that which country we belong to. All the students gave their introduction and I too. I found that every student have different identity depending on their homeland. So, our land differentiates our identities to each other. If somebody goes in a different place his land identifies him that who is he and where is he from. Finally, I think that land is our identity which recognizes us from other in all over the world.
