dc.description This literacy narrative describes my challenges of transitioning from my first language, Limbu, to Nepali and then to English as a medium of education. I define literacy more broadly than learning to read and write but as also constituting gaining knowledge. I believe that literacy practice cannot be alienated from our socio-cultural reality and it keeps on changing when you move from one place to another. At the same time, I assume that transition from one literary practice to another creates the situation of ambivalence which becomes a beginning point for learning. en_US
