BBC Living with Nomads 1/3 Nepal

Nepal's nomads people during shelter construction

The nomads of Nepal

This documentary, thanks to Kate Humble is presented very well and it is easy to understand the lifestyle of nomads populations. The difficult thing to understand is how is possible in our era, in our world, where everywhere people houseless are considered a problem? the answer is that is possible in wildlands only. It is possible in the remote regions our loved planet. There are regions where to live is survive, where nothing is safe and tomorrow doesn’t exist. These regions are very important because are the only places on the earth where the biodiversity is intact, is the result of million years of evolution. This is in total contrast with the anthropized lands, where people live in artificial areas like cities.

We don’t want to say is a mistake to live in cities but we need to know that there are many problems created by our blind vision of life. The planet is all the earth and the global balancing is depending in large part from human rights. We are responsible for our good and bad.

In this first of three documentaries, she meets Nepal’s nomads.

Nomads are absolutely wild, this lifestyle requires great adaptability and knowledge of nature and environment. in Nepal the life is so strong and just the ancestral secrets permit at the nomad to survive.

The nomadic life issues

For nomads, the biggest problem is the contact, the interaction with the civilized and resident population. The lifestyle of nomads is poor, simple and with a very low hygienic standard. So, many times residents are very disappointed about the nomad’s presence. These cause conflicts and bad situations.

There is a future for nomads?

Like you can see in the documentary, in perspective is probably very difficult for nomads to follow their traditions. It will be may be necessary to try to integrate herself into some local community. This is even necessary if you want to give children the necessary instruction.

We don’t know the future but we hope all the best for these nice tribe.
