Year 2011 has almost done its full circle for the year and here we stand once again to farewell this year and welcome the another one with our new resolution; So hereby I would like to personally wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

This Christmas I decided to go to Nan Tien Temple at Berkeley, NSW, Australia with my family hoping it would be quiet but on arrival; it was otherwise; it was mayhem when I got there.

All these people from all creeds and color were there. Questions, questions… ringing  in my head. What is the sole purpose of me and these people to be here on this day of the year? Am I and the rest here because we do not celebrate the Christmas in a tradition Christen ways or is it simply because everyone of us had nowhere else to go; hence we all landed in the abode of Buddha for refuge.

Fiction was never my cup of tea. But there are still few books that I cannot forget and stop praising it for its beauty. The Firm by John Grisham, Shogun by James Clavell, Master of the Game by Sidney Sheldon are the few of them which have immense impact on my reading; fiction. Read the rest of this entry »

On Society and Education

The society is full-on with eastern philosophy which comprises of religion and the way of life and on the other side we have education following the western principles and philosophy. These are two sides of magnet and repels on its proximity. Both ends serves well if it’s left on its own but when brought together it just repels and pushes each other. When society demands individual to act on its norm but the education bends the otherwise. Thus a conflict.

The Mao’s of Nepal has not only destabilized the politics but also the social norms of the society. It has crippled the society from functioning. People are facing anxiety, fear and depression on everyday basis which is an irony of this country. Peace was once the prominent voice now it’s just the war torn country. They did get what they wanted as other political parties did; the PM seat but what has the public received. Absolutely nothing, complete zero and we are still numb. WHY? The only reason is public forgets things too soon and revive on the same lie of getting done something for them. This is the only reason for political parties of being able to retain themselves in the scene even after a complete failure of them being in politics for more than 50 years.

सिपाहि (A soldier) was my first book that introduced me to Nepali Literature. That was year 11 (1997). Before that I kept me self in complete dark with my assumption that I am in no capability of understanding the words of literature. The only book in Nepali language was Mahendra Mala in school rest was in English. I was taught English Grammar since UKG but I learnt Nepali grammar when I got to class 8 and class 9-10 were intense with grammar and more in writing too which pissed me off for not being able to cope with it. They did introduce history and grammar in year 4 but all in vain. The course was scrapped; it was too much for us to handle instead we got social studies and moral science which was more or less science and the other being stories with moral values. And little did I care as I was completely soaked by English language and its literature.

This is my first try on Nepali Literature so please be gentle. Thanks for reading.

VERSE 1

हिड्दैछु आज कर्मको बाटो; यो मेरो
झुकदैन……………. थाडो सिर यो मेरो
नेपालको छोरो हु म विरको


बर्षातको झरी होस्
या
winter को जाडो
चट्टान झै अडिक भै
हिड्ने छु बाटो आफ्नो
चाल्ने छु पाईला सधै शान्तिको

शान्तिको दुत भनि
फैलीएको नाम यो मेरो
आज बिधोलीयो घरबार हाम्रो

काख यो…………….. नेपाल आमाको
खेल्ने फुलबारी
चार जात ३६ वर्णको
सुख र सम्रिदि सदा सदा
भुली भिन्नता आज यो हाम्रो

VERSE 2

हे आमा नेपाल
छोरो हु म तिम्रो
समर्पित गर्छु सेवामा जिवन यो मेरो
कहिल्यै नमेटिने माया यो मेरो
सदा सदा जन्मिरहु कोखमा तिम्रो
अमर रहोस् माया यो हाम्रो
नेपाल र नेपालीको

सपना छ मेरो
सिङ्गार गर्ने तिम्रो
संसारको सामु तिमीलाई चिनाउने
विर नेपालीको गाधा सुनाई
सारा संसारलाई
तिमी सामु झुकाऊने

हे आमा नेपाल
प्रणाम छ मेरो
हुर्कायो काखमा तिम्रो
दु:ख त्यो आफ्नो पोखिनौ कहिल्यै
सुखमा नै भुलायौ जहिल्यै
जलेको होला हृदय त्यो तिम्रो
साथ नहुदा आज म तिम्रो
तर…………….. फर्की आउनेछु चाडो
तिम्रो सेवामा समरपित छ जिवन यो मेरो
समरपित छ जिवन यो मेरो।।

Polio Drop Vaccination
A child being administered a polio vaccine at Basantapur

Nepal yesterday administered a nationwide polio immunization campaign. Many polio vaccine centers were setup for easy access of polio drops to the general public.

There are a few basic things that everyone should know about polio:

  • Polio is a highly infectious viral disease through Poliomyelitis (polio).
  • Polio mainly affects children under five years of age.
  • Poliovirus is mainly passed through person-to-person contact.
  • There is no cure for polio, it can only be prevented through immunization.
  • Until and unless polio is eradicated, the polio drop has to be given.

Bandh and Political party have been synonymous or else it wouldn’t appear so often as the days in a week that rolls on every day of the month. The so called Student Union or the young generation faction of any party just doesn’t seem to understand or whatever the reason might be but it all seems blind man leading. As the name suggests it is a student union so must belong to some institution and hopefully they will be taught and in the mean time they do learn something that should make them wary of the things that’s happening around them or are they just the bunch stupid nerd admitted in the universities just to create the chaos in the country with there protest, band, hooliganism, and merely following the orders of the party leader like the army without any consideration.

Being the student and young they are supposed to be the energy to build something, do something but all we see is just the opposite. Regardless of what qualifications you have everyone is doing the same: beating the weak, breaking someone’s property in the name of protest. But how will this change a thing. Does this affect the government or the person you are protesting for or against? It just harms and hurts the next person who is another Nepali like you, a brother in a wider sense. He might have his own problems and situation that he is fighting for just to meet the ends. But who cares. The party says or the leader of the student union is unhappy about something; now guess what; band, without any prior notice what do you expect someone to do at that moment, they can’t just simply disappear on your mood for Bandh and then be visible back aging when the situation changes.
