What is Sitapaila

Being a spouse of diplomat does not only consist of attending receptions, high profile functions of the host country, dinner and launch with ex-pats and colleagues. However, it also involves personal life as well.

The personal life is informal and very much family-oriented. Many books are available related to the formal aspects of the life of the ambassador’s wife. However, only a few have attempted to see social life or informal parts.

The book is about a whole new adventure that begins in a little boy who finds out that his family is going to move to Nepal. From a most advanced country, Israel with different natural and cultural settings, his new home is far away in Nepal. Sitapaila is the most magical place he could ever imagine. This is what she has described in her book.

Trained in development and humanitarian work, the author is passionate about cross-cultural learning and embracing diversity. She is fascinated by the interaction between children and animals, and their ability to imagine the good side of life under any circumstances. She believes that everyone needs a small dose of childlike curiosity, animal-like adaptability and joy in little things, every day.

She experienced and saw the great earthquake of Nepal in 2015 and the hectic work of her husband to bring the Israeli humanitarian medical team to provide medical aid to victims of the earthquake.
