Global Citizens 12 - Sanjogk


A huge warm welcome to our 12th Global Citizen, Sanjogk.

Sanjogk, is from Sauraha, Chitwan, Nepal and has lived here all of his almost 30 years on this earth. He is a jungle guide and works at a cooperative trekking company in Sauraha.

After graduating Sanjock worked in IT but he didn’t feel fulfilled. His Dad works in the guiding business so he decided to join him. He spent working 5 years as an apprentice guide, learning about the jungle, wildlife, flora and fauna before attending the government interview to become a registered guide. 12 days and 1 test later Sanjogk got his license and has been a guide ever since.

His dream is to go to Africa to learn about the wildlife protection schemes they have and bring that knowledge and awareness to Sauraha to pass onto others.

Thank you Sanjogk for taking the time to share your thoughts with Global Citizens.


What makes you happy?

I am happy.

I don’t know what makes me happy.

How can I say what makes me happy when I am already happy?



What makes you sad?

That people want to live an artificial life surrounded by artificial things and don’t care about nature and our planet.

People always want things but never enjoy what they already have – nature.



What makes you proud?

This is a difficult question for me… I don’t know how to answer it.



What makes you wonder?

Why people think an artificial life is better than a real one!

For me I want nothing more than some money to travel so I can learn things. I don’t need a big cement house, a fast metal car or a painted wife but for some only this makes them happy.

They don’t look out the window and see what happiness is.



What does it mean to be human?

Hmmm… this is difficult.

How can I say it?

One life is so different from another so how can we have the same ideas and thoughts?

How can we relate to each other?

Can a rich person living in a city understand the life of someone living in poverty?


What is your most prized possession?

What do you see when you look out the window?

How would you answer if you were asked?

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read Global Citizens.

Have a great day.
