Kamala Neupane lived in the home and was in Bakrang when the earthquake hit. Her husband passed away years ago and her children all live outside of Bakrang, so she spent the hours after the earthquake trying to reach her children. her son, Pratap, is student in Kathmandu and came back to Bakrang to help his mother recover what they can from the rubble.

A roughly hour drive from Gorkha, Bakrang is among the hardest hit villages in the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25. Out of 793 houses homes in Bakrang, 515 were completely destroyed.
