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.

Social media adapting political parties in Nepal



It is quite amazing how politicians of Nepal are using social media for various purpose. Leaders are setting up their Facebook fan page, political parties are creating their groups and pages which is very very interesting.
Although only 12% of the country's population has direct access to internet, it is estimated that around  3,411,948 internet users are online everyday in Nepal. With such limited number and limited service the popularity of social media and its use has increased exponentially.

Even during the 13th National General Convention of the Nepali congress a huge efforts were seen in promoting their candidates. The supporters were genuinely doing an effort in creating a buzz for getting votes promoting their political manifesto and agendas for future.

The use of social media has increased phenomenally during the last few years where once the social media was accused of being a worthless tool of blaming and accusing the politicians. If you look at the trend these days Nepali political leaders are more twitting and facebooking of expressing their voice and reaching the public.

Nepal's political culture is yet to change but with the shift of social media politicians of Nepal are more aware of current issues and public voice which is clearly visible.

Nepal's Toursim after Post Earthquake




‪#‎NepalToursim‬ and ‪#‎CulturalHeritage‬ indeed has prospects in Nepal, After the devastating earthquake there is more prospect of finding better solution to Nepal's Tourism than prolonging the issue where the relevant departments and ministry seems to be silent in doing any effort. Reality is Nepal's Tourism  Leadership saw a shift which should have been an eye opener to work towards better future but still after the new appoint things do look the same.

Its the same old system and same old people they lack leadership and vision about what to do?
when to do and how to do it ?

Nobody has to tell us about what we need to do at this time of crisis but the thing is are we doing it ?

Tourism is a service industry that works with better coordination of public private sectors, its the only sector that has less investment and high revenue generation capacity increasing the optimization of resources.
After earthquake there has not been any progress in terms of strengthening the tourism  industry in any ways. For your update a project Name NepalNow was being launched by a private initiation where NTB is still trying to engage with it. Most of the content in the project focuses more about promoting Nepal after the earthquake.  we need more projects like these where NTB has to take a lead, its not that we do not have resources but there seems to be a huge gap of WHAT...

Hello!
It was for earthquake and it is over now let's think about re-branding the tourism industry with better marketing strategy, social media strategy and product positioning. Nobody seems to be interested, i guess its the way how it works here  

Everyone is pointing the other way trying to look for solution within others, it seems nobody wants to work for the industry or do their jobs properly.
but in absence of proper infrastructure and ‪#‎management‬ , things are in a ‪#‎denial‬. At this times of ‪#‎crisis‬ , I think we ought to do a reality check, for what is happening and what we need...
So what does it takes to improve the industry?        

  1. Who is going to take care of the Airport TIA in terms of customer support, cleanlyness, services available, transporatation, security etc
  2. Similarly, what about the restaurant and hotels, the prices are very high these days ?
  3. Tourist Security is indeed yet another problem. There has been rise in minor cases of fraud and other iregualrities after the ‪#‎nepalquake
  4. Regarding ‪#‎trekking‬ TIMS needs to be upgraded with better tracking technology. ‪#‎Transperancy‬ and clarity highly recommended 
  5. Visibility of ‪#‎volunteers‬ and their operations need to be segregated. There is a very high number of volunteers who visit Nepal just for ‪#‎volunteering‬ . They need to be acknowledge & verified
  6. Proper system of information desk required at major tourist arrival spots 
  7. Location mapping and signs at major tourist spots needed
  8. Promotional and information materials availability is lacked 
  9. Development of Informational system that guides and helps a tourist is needed 
  10. Easy communication channels need to be set up for tourists (FM/Radio/TV/social media)
  11. Promotion of International and adventure sport with high efficiency and effectiveness

I think it's high time we ought to think about preparing for future and start working for tomorrow.
We cannot sell and beg with earthquake always
We have to start from somewhere, it's better we start today

King Prithivi Deserves recognition to his contribution



In the past, Poush 27 was celebrated as the National Unity Day in Nepal , But in view of the past revolution, people have forgotten the importance and contribution of King Prithivi Narayan Shah.

Nepal to be a sovereign country came through a great process of unification and diplomacy where the role and leadership of King Prithivi cannot be forgotten. It was his vision and leadership that aspired the unification and brought this scattered nation into one nation Nepal. His contribution cannot be forgotten where he holds the pride and passion of a true leader.

Today in the modern Nepal the political leaders have adapted the  negative aspect and have created a wrong system where corruption favoritism, nepotism etc are rising.

On one hand people have been suffering and on the other political leaders are manipulating the situation to further create a situation of chaos and instability where they can politicize the situation.

The leaders have forgotten those value of  nationalism and are more motivated to do selfish party politics.

Their main agenda is divide and rule, to prove this logic one can clearly see how they have created differences among the public in the name of religion and rights. They are targeting the vulnerable groups in giving them boost to their aggravation in suppressing their true right and empowering the wrong people to power.  

The current need of time is
1. Right to Education
2. Right to Food
3. Right to Health
4. Right to Human Rights
5. Rights to Security

If you look at current practice then you will see how uneducated people are being empowered in the name of  politics. A knife is a powerful tool which can be used in and against as per the conscience.

Its high time we realize where our society and political culture is going.

President donates her first salary to Pashupatinath: Is she insane ?



Right now when the country is facing a crisis situation of people dying in various parts of Nepal due to lack of warm cloths and blankets. The president of Nepal, Bidhya Devi Bhandari donated her first salary to Pashupatinath Fund. It was her personal money and there is no definition to what is right or wrong in terms of its use but morally it sound pretty not convincing about her donating the money just for the sake of doing a pooja.

In every aspect when the Nepal government is not able to perform about managing the construction process, the president's action surely reflects the lack of concern towards the general public.

It is really sad when at times of need people who have powers turn a blind eye towards issues of concern, everyday there are deaths reported due to cold in the earthquake hit regions and our president is donating her money not for buying blankets but for doing pooja in pashupatinath.

Sad reality but it certainly show how Nepali political culture believes in showcasing than in putting actions. what could be More valuable and divine than to donate blankets for the shivering people in the cold or doing pooja at pashupatinath. May be its her choice and her money but there could be a  reasonable answer to it.

She is the first Feminist communist president of  the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal which practices a secularism and she has been hugely criticized for this act  in social media by the public.
