People of Nepal
People perform physically demanding labor, but women tend to work longer hours, have less free time, and die younger. In urban areas, men are far more likely to work outside the home. Increasingly, educational opportunities are available to both men and women, and there are women in professional positions. Women also frequently work in family businesses as shopkeepers and sewing.
Kids and older people are valued sources of household labor. In rural families, young kids collect firewood, mind animals, and watch younger children. Older people may serve on village councils. In urban areas and superior towns, kids attend school; rural children may or may not, depending on the proximity of schools, the availability of teachers, and the work required at home.
Food of Nepal
The foods of Nepal are in flavors of less spice and more herbs and simple food. The typical dish is called “Dal Bhat Tarkari.” Nepali is the most verbal language, followed by English. Nepal is well related by air to all the nations. It connects with its neighboring and adjacent states with rails and intercity with roads. There is a fantastic variety of local cuisine such as Thakali, Newari, and food of the ethnic minorities.
The regular Nepali meal is dal (lentil soup), bhat (boiled rice), and tarkari (curried vegetables), most often accompanied by achar (pickle) or just raw chilies. Curried meat is trendy. Acquired from Tibetans, momos (steamed or fried dumplings) deserve mention as one of the most popular snacks among Nepalis. It is also occupied as a complete meal, especially by office goers during lunch. Rotis (flatbread) and dhedo (boiled flour) also make meals in some homes, especially in rural areas.
Rice remains constant; the side dishes bring a lot of variety to the meals in Nepali cuisine. Depending upon ethos and civilization, cooking in the Nepali homes (where the cooks are always the housewife) tends to settle curries with complex spices that she has learned from her mother, which has traditionally been used for centuries. Nepal’s cuisine is mostly, but not all of them, spicy; however, on request, spices can be reduced without compromising the taste of the dish.

Nepal is home to diverse spiritual and ethnic groups and even climates. Historically and in modern times, it has led to significant variations in Nepalese Clothing.
