श्रीकुमारी चौधरी

धर्मिन्द्रा शाह/ के गर्न यो त संसारको नियम नै हो । जिन्दगीका मोडहरू सुख–दु:खका संगम हुन् । यी शब्दहरूलाई जिन्दगीको साथी सम्झेर अगाडि बढनुपर्ने रहेछ । त्यस्तै कथा कैलाली जिल्लाको विकट ठाउँ मानिने गेटा गाविस वार्ड नं. ७ पृथ्वीपुरमा वस्ने आमाको नाम बचौनीदेवी चौधरी र बुबाको नाम लौटन चौधरीको कान्छी छारी हुन् श्रीकुमारी चौधरी ।

उनको परिवार जम्मा चार जनाको छ । तर, गरिबीका कारण उनको आमा–बुबाले धेरै वर्ष अरूको घरमा कमैया भएर जिन्दगी बिताए । कमैयाको जिन्दगी भनेको एक्दमै दु:ख–कष्ट गर्दै जिन्दगी बिताउन बाध्य थिए । कहिले काहीं  त बिरामी पर्दा पनि साहुले औषधि खर्च दिदैन्थे । पैसा माग्दा ऋणमा दिइन्थे त्यति धेरै काम गर्दा पनि साहुले आफ्ना कमैयामाथि विश्वास गर्दैन्थ्ये ।
