Fake Certificates are not a problem but needs better solution

These days the Nepal Government is interrogating and investigating certificates of most of the bureaucrats and other professionals in cross checking their validity. The Nepal Government and its concerned Departments are checking and confirming the originality of certificates obtained from various institutions which was submitted by the officials while applying for civil servant post and other important position in public welfare policy.

It is certainly wrong  to obtain an advance degree or to apply for a job on the basis of false certification or certificate but with a huge numbers turning around, it seems like a chronic problem.
Every other individual in a government department is coming up with the issue, it seems there is some problem with the overall education system of Nepal which is stagnant and rigid towards adapting and listening the voices of public.

So what is it that makes the people use fake certificates?

  1. Limited orthodox course study  
  2. Lack of vision and expertise in designing the education system
  3. Lack proper policy 
  4. Lack of development and research
  5. Lack of leadership 
  6. Orthodox mentality of education and knowledge based on certificates 
  7. Lack of proper skill based education 
  8. Limitation of  growth and development of industry
  9. Certification more powerful than skills
  10. Public policy weakening 
One of the amazing thing is these people who are allegedly caught with fake certificates are skilled professionals who are currently working in the society with high reputation and high performance level. Its not that they are not doing their job properly but its their credibility and accountability on the part of their morale and ethic that has been questioned

I think its one of the major problem of our society that has a preconception of  focusing and understanding the importance of high marks and percentage. when you score a high marks you have to study science or engineering, it doesn't matter what the interest of the child is but his scores matters. So these kinds of preconception have been predominant in practice. Similarly, the tendency of focusing certain field of study to certain marks and percentage is also another problem where a child scoring less percentage has a restriction of joining management and humanities only. I think its these pre-conception that are ruling and motivating the use of fake certificates.
    
By saying this I am not in support of fake certificates but I am against the orthodox education system that manipulates and produces students that are like vegetables. I am against the education system that fails to update against the modern development and growth where knowledge is pride more than certificates.

"Apart from that specially if you look at the trend of migrating workers every other person has a fake certificate as one of the government has set normal standard of education for applying through the legal channel to be minimum SLC and they acquire it by paying a minimum amount of money, " said a Foreign migration" agent in condition of anonymity.

Likewise, it is a sad situation in this country that it requires no education or standard to be politician but it requires a top level mindset and competency to work for the Nepal Government Bureaucracy.

One cannot just image when a non educated illiterate politician  would advice a MBA joint secretary to do a job properly. One can just imagine the frustration and level of absurdness.

But this is reality and what has been happening people who work professionally need certificate but people who are responsible for the public do not require any level of education

Ban the Military Grade Guns from public reach

United States(US) has always been very liberal and open  about its gun policy. Every now and then there has always been a great debate about the gun policy  and its regulation. Similarly, every time when there is an event of mass massacre or killing, the issue of public access of Arms has always confronted the public policy of US with a hard hitting punch of reality where it has been escaping the issue under the scope and role of personal security.

It's a sad reality but US government has been ignoring the reality behind the fact that more and more people are getting killed due to easy access of Arms and ammunition than any other cause.  

Looking at the mentality of people in US, the point of being safe with a gun is more prized then the point of guns falling into the wrong hands which is more vulnerable  seems radically ignored. I am not an expert in management of legal arms and ammunition  and its law but I feel the public should have limitation and regulation in terms of  access to the military grade weapon. I mean to say its military grade that is optimized for maximum performance which needs to be understood and researched. There is no point in arguing whether there is a right to security or not but giving access to the public to military grade arms is something like giving ticking time bomb to a kid.    

The Orlando shooting in the pulse restaurant is yet another example of weakness of the limitation of gun policy. Omar Mateen, used an AR-15  a military grade assault rifle to kill 49 people,  and 53 more sustaining injuries. As of now report suggest Mateen legally purchased the two guns used in the attack from a shop in Port St. Lucie two weeks before the shooting.

I believe US being the most powerful country is vulnerable when its comes to its internal policies, it need to open up in terms of standardizing the policy and facilitate the public with the priority of security only.

Kalo Pothi a different movie in the face of Maoist struggle



Watching #KaloPothi was yet another pain in the face of #Development, with so many awards and critically claiming to be one of the best movies but I was fairly happy with the movie. I felt the movie was made targeting abroad screening and for international awards.  It was more of a story of a small boy who went through the violence and stress of social cultural barriers. One thing that I like about the movies was the entrepreneur skill and the rich casting. The movie moves around the whole story of a Hen and I guess it prioritizes and symbolizes the role of females in our society and their struggle for upliftment as well.  

The movie run around the time of  2001, during the  ceasefire. Prakash and Kiran, are two young boys in their teens who are close friends and study in the same school. Though close friends but they are culturally  divided by their caste system and financial position. The whole story moves around the friendship of  Kiran and Prakash  and about the missing hen left by Prakash's  sister who join Maoist in view of her social discrimination and poverty. The duo start their journey with in action and events of the fragile ceasefire and social discrimination.

A very simple story with a different angle, I must say. Right now the Nepali movie industry is following into the league of capitalizing the trend of indigenous people and focusing more towards cashing the popularity of dalit issue. The movie is also more aligned of getting more edge over the international awards and cultural aspect of emotionally blackmailing the viewers.

Gauging more to the climax, It focuses to a different perspective of a young boy who experiences  the trauma of seeing, feeling and being part of the violence and killing. The movie niches down to an attitude of a common man mentality and cultural difference of Mugu where the great cinematography and story-line rules in. Though the movie is a lame in its beginning but it hits back in its climax with the scenes. In discrete way of understanding the racism  and difference of cultural upholding but to a brighter side it also shows the importance of education and how people of lower communities are taking up education as a solution for their upliftment. 


In view of the violence the movie also takes into account the illegal killing and sad story of innocent people who suffered the consequences of being part of the Maoist struggle.  


Though various International Development organization and other Non Governmental Organization have been lobbying the issue of cultural discrimination but  the movie highlights a different image of a #Dalit or indigenous people studying at the same local school. It may be a cliche to the whole aspect of social cultural debate but poverty is something that certainly has a price and its very hard which is the same every where. 


The movie majorly focuses on the perspective that widens the horizon of how minority group of people  adapted the trends of struggle and #Violence  during those days. It depicts the gap between the real political scenario of what happened and how it was portrayed.
#Equality survived ages of contemplation in the brink of #Change 
where it searches new meanings of adaptation and social collaboration

A perspective of the unknown eyes that seamlessly searches for the basic, a boy felt and wanted. It was just some smiles of happiness that perishes in the bloods of innocent people fighting the great #Janayuddha or the political constipation of power and regime...


"Kalo Pothi is the first Nepali feature film to be featured, nominated for and win the International Film Critics’ Week of the prestigious Venice Film Festival. "

No Governance at public Departments of Nepal



If you talk about the current situation in most of public departments of Nepal then its very sad in terms of providing services and facilities. Though these department  are established with the motive to provide  public with  services and facilities  but then  there is a huge gap of  corruption and nepotism that goes around. These public departments are not monitored nor are the Civil servant staff trained to treat the public in proper way.

It always my way or highway where the public are bound to suffer the consequences of bad services and facilities. Today #WED2016  I went to the Department of Transportation and Management (DoTM) for my pollution sticker. I was firm about my rights and what I need to do so I was not framed but despite that I was asked to use and I refused it.

I believed that for change you have to stand up from inside, so my take was that on Environment Day 2016 no matter what I would take the Vehicle Pollution Test and get a green sticker. It is my responsibility at individual level to promote pollution free vehicle and I think what better to do it than today.

While waiting for my turn, I was surprised to hear the stories of People and the current agent trend that is adapting upon the public services which is directly promoting corruption to a new level.

You cannot make things happen or cannot do a public work without the agents. You have to pay extra money to hire an agent for the quick services. If you try to do the job yourself it will probably take ages not because you will have troubles knowing  the public but the staffs won't cooperate. The problem here is not the cooperation but the adaption of the agents services in public services and governance. These agents are so powerful that they have their own affiliation and working strategy.

The staff are  rude and they just out lash their  frustration upon the public like anything. It completely  impossible to even deal with them at person level.

 Another sad Aspect of sad public governance is the public line up from 4 AM for the application submission of driving licence and still after waiting in the line for hours they are turned down depending upon the random number of application accepted by the DoTM staff.

Sad Reality but yes there is no public service or governance in Nepal.

what is a BLOG?


Personally, I think Blog is a form of expression in a desired way. It is a free way and will of expression that has no limitation of boundaries. You blog because you want to express and that's what make it beautiful. It's you and your voice with no minimum level of adulteration of any sort of fake expressions.  It has no interpretation and meaning, it is your voice for the action and things happening around you. It is closely related to a distinct human behavior that is more subjective to resistance and survival.

As said we humans survived the evolution process because we could always fight and voice our will. I guess blogging is yet another adaptation of will and survival that has evolved in the most protagonist way in materializing the form of a skill.

Its a free will of connected words in creating a meaning.  

I think its the inner side of your voices and experiences that comes out in available form of communication or social media or through your actions. Defining and contrasting it within a pattern or limitation is not a blog but a more precise form of tactile writing.

To be very specific blogging may be an interest but for most of the people its a repercussion of interest that comes with a feeling of expression. It may be a series of expression but it has various sides of collaboration and condition which needs to be understood.

As per person and case, Blogging comes as an addiction to speak against action or against impunity or writing in terms of easing your thoughts and cognitive process.  The visibility and clarity  of what you see and  think is something that completely affects your blog.

You can just release your frustration or anger with your words that are more effective to express in terms of human behavior.

I say "Blogging is a silent art of fighting that has more power and conviction to fight against impunity or for justice."

Everest at its peak of its limitation: 464 people in 4 days

Opening after 2 years, this season Everest seems to be overcrowded with people and more excitement. After the  devastating earthquake things have completely changed, the numbers have gone up with more people coming back to scale Everest.  It has been officially reported that around 464 climbers, have been scheduled to climb Everest in the next four days. Surprising but its true, though many tourists and climbers died last season during the devastating earthquake  still the name and fame of Everest has not gone down. But 464 people in 4 days seems like over the top number but the reality bites. I think the Government of Nepal needs to seriously think about these high numbers. Its a complete exploitation of the natural resource and pushing it to the limits is not a good sign.

Royalty can be an effective revenue generation but every step that marks Everest leaves behind some form of climatic and carbon trace at Everest as well. We need to evaluate and think about the consequences of crowding people at Everest. It is not a joke that so many people are living and breathing in that ecosystem  that is so fragile and delicate.

Now when the climate change is directly affecting Everest region the huge number of people interested in Everest certainly adds more problem to current. It may look good from the income generation perspective but from climate change and ecology perspective its harshly affecting the delicate environment which is build upon thousand of years of conditioning.

We have to think about the image and other impacts,  its not just the people, its their waste, their carbon foot print which make a huge difference rather than the royalty that they pay.

The whole Everest region ecosystem is on the verge of risk  due to various contamination in such condition the numbers shooting up certainly showcases how careless and blind our government is towards Everest.

Water crisis hits Kathmandu with no option

The recent climate change and the drastic climatic condition has resulted in drought in the nation. Though there has been a crisis situation created in major parts of the country but still the Nepal government is silent about the issue.  The traditional water taps that were regularly supplying water have gone dry since last month while the population continues to increase as people migrate in view of money or find work.
From earthquake to blockade to this water crisis  Nepalese are bound to suffer the consequences where is no option and people are bound to pay more money. The scarcity has created a black marketing situation where water supplying companies are charging money randomly as per clients.

The water crisis  of Nepal is taking an unprecedented toll on the people where they have no option to flee. As the country recovers from decades of civil war and a devastating earthquake, it is imperative that there should be permanent solution be discovered in terms of management of water resources in the country.

Super Journalist or a Donor Agency agent Kanak Mani Dixit



The arrest of Kanak Mani Dixit by the CIAA has brought into lime light the issue of Foreign Aid money and the manipulation in terms of managing and utilization of foreign Aid.

The CIAA recently arrested Kanak for amassing property  and money by abusing his authority through his organization. His role during the  Jana Andolan 2063 and lobbying secularism in the country was a well conceptualized strategy of  the western world who wanted Christianity to be established in the country. He was backed by various agencies and  embassies  where the various transactions proves his involvement in the process of making the political scenario volatile.

According to a press release issued by  CIAA, “He was taken into custody by the  Commission  as per the legal provision of Section 19(1C) of the CIAA Act, 1991. As he committed activities against the law and obstructed the investigation process. He has been summoned for amassing property and money by abusing the public authority and for depositing sums in domestic and foreign banks in various family members. Investigation have revealed that he has acquired  an apartment in the US in  Kanak’s wife Shanta’s Name  at a cost of US$435,000 on 10 November 2010. Similarly, two accounts in CHASE Bank of the USA with $17,208.74 and while wife Shanta operates a separate account in HSBC Bank, UK, and two personal accounts in Apple Bank, USA, with deposit $ 68,926.48 and Pound Sterling 4,126.39, respectively have been reveled. Pound Sterling 27,638.88 were deposited in the two accounts of HSBC Bank, UK, in the name of Kanak Mani and Shanta Dixit. He further has not informed Nepal Rastra Bank about the transaction of $50,000 sent from HSBC London to Matrix TV Private Limited in the name of Kanak himself, his father Kamal Mani Dixit and Anju Dixit. Apart from that he possess 36,000 shares of Standard Chartered UK and jointly he and his wife have 120,000 shares of HSBC UK. The South Asia Trust chaired by Dixit has received Rs 11,12,49,435.96 on different dates from various foreign organisations of Switzerland, the USA and the Netherlands”

In December 2015,  Dixit was summoned by CIAA for investigation of his income source where  he  challenged the CIAA  move filing a writ petition which was cancelled by the Apex court.

what would you say to people like him who work as a journalist and work against the motive of development of people and country.

‪#‎kanakmanidixit‬ is a smart man, I guess, Millions in foreign banks, millions in shares with the skin of a ‪#‎Journalist‬ Smart really smart. He is the among the elite group of people who have power, money and backup.
If he is guilty, he should be brought by the book.

The making of a Miss Nepal and their new ways of presentation



Miss Nepal has always been into controversy in one or the other way. From women activist to the wide ranger of other controversies related to women empowerment, its always a new idea and thought of contradiction.  

May be, it's not because people love criticizing or may be  it's because miss Nepal represents the women of Nepal, a pristine representation in terms of empowerment, leadership, morale values and so many other qualities. She is not a normal person and she cannot behave like one as millions of people are follow and admire her so she has to be perfect and glorified in every possible way of presentation and preparation .

 It is quite overwhelming sitting at the center stage and addressing  the crowd which might seem challenging but with the training and groom up session  you just have to suck up all your fears and abnormalities and give your 100% or else your out of the league.  I guess pressure is something which these girls face from the day one and its the 1 % of what they have to face as after the competition you have to face the 99% which come with the package and label of being a Miss Nepal Contestant  or in case of winner then its more dramatic in every possible way of adjusting your whole lifestyle.

 I guess the responsibility of being popular and Miss Nepal is more than living up for your identity, as things do change overnight to be a star and to face the country with being the idol and star of hundreds and millions.

May be this is the reason why people expect high standard and so much from  Miss Nepal winners.



Talking more about the raining Miss Nepal 2015 Evana Manandhar she sounds like a 50 year old mature woman with a  soggy attitude who behaves  like one. I do not why but during her speech itself she was impounding that they concurred the international events that they all participated but let me tell you Evana you didn't. You didn't bring back anything expect a personal experience nor did you do anything special during the Nepal earthquake. Though I can understand your limitation of being Miss Nepal 2015 but  you could have mobilized the resources and network very effectively.

Now talking more about the current miss Nepal 2016 Asmee Shrestha what a lousy pick. I think the judges were drunk or they were under influence, How can a woman who says she would blind fold herself for a king represent a woman of 21 century  and on contrary to that in the next answer when she was asked about the reservation she support equality and denied the support to the quota of woman reservation.

What is wimp?
 A modern woman of 21 century is all about standing up for herself leadership, being free from prejudices and she is saying she would marry the blind king and be blind. what an answer.....  

I am amazed with the decision and surprised with the judges how and who made those sad judges.

Give me a break !!!!

What kind of woman idols are we setting up here for young women to look at.

This years Miss Nepal 2016 looks more confused about her own values equality and rights.she is just a frog in a well.

Let me tell you Asmee Kathmandu is not Nepal. First you go to the rural villages but you have to know their state and condition.

Miss Nepal represents the best of the best beauty with brains.

Nepal Government is raising money for rebuilding the national heritage and Iconic landmark


It is really sad to see how the Nepal Government is raising money for rebuilding the national heritage and Iconic  landmark. It has launched a public campaign My Dharara for crowd fundraising and established a bank account.

As the April 25 earthquake certainly shook us in terms of awareness and preparedness of conflict and disaster management. The Nepal Government proves to be ridiculous silly in raising money as there has been so much of funding and donation received in terms of Reconstruction. Till now from various donor and foreign aid agencies have promised to contribute around 6.7 billion USD for the reconstruction process where many of the donor have kept their silence due to lack of transparency and accountability  issue.    

Personally I feel sad that Nepal government is doing this public stunt for proving its credibility.
