11:25 am
school in kathmandu after the quake. the shock aftershock destroyed his home and the books that were in it. >> there is no time to study even if i wanted to. >> in kathmandu some schools are ready to open. but the books and uniforms of some students are buried in the rubble of their homes. without them they can't attend classes, and they don't believe that's fair. >> i have dreams like anyone else to study and take care of my family. but once my school opens i won't be able to go. it's not a good feeling but there is nothing i can do. >> life has never been easy here. today is another day-to-day struggle for most people. and now the worry of their children's future, their education will be marked by the earthquake waker quake too. al jazeera nepal. >> what strikes everyone when
