Media publicity in un-necessary way SSP Kharel a hero or a Villan

SSP kharel donating Nrs 25,000 to the help Nepal Network to Rabindra Mishra 

These days’ social networking sites are flooded with the messages of SSP Kharel's controversy or SSP Kharel saving campaigns. The issue hit me so much that I started Investigating and within seconds, I had the answers why, what and how people were being misinterpreted.

Ramesh Kharel was recently summoned a transferred order by the Home ministry from his current post of Chief of Metropolitan Police Kathmandu to Police headquarters. According to various sources, SSP Ramesh Kharel’s transferred order was issued in view of his negligent behavior that he had shown in a public event at Mahendra Police club. During that event, SSP Ramesh Kharel remarked that some of the incumbent DIGs were trying to bribe the government ministers and other senior politicians for their promotions where Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mahendra Pandey was the chief guest. With such statement a panel of 3 members’ investigation team was set up under DIG Bigyan Raj Sharma for further investigation. The committee founded SSP Kharel guilty and had forwarded immediate action against him.
It has been reported that under the recommendation of the probe, SSP Kharel has been transferred to Police Headquarters for his careless behavior.

Though there has been many groups and events started in facebook in favor of SSP Kharel, people need to know the reality. It’s time when the public needs to be aware about the truth. Just because there are more supporters of Kharel, he cannot by pass the rules and regulation of his position and popularity. He doesn’t have the right to speak anything and everything in public.

 Police is an important institution and its representative cannot speak carelessly or cannot be indiscipline. It’s against their rule of duty as well as against their work culture. Their pride and honor is to serve the public not to act like a hero.  I think being responsible is more important in civil service than to cashing your popularity. Your duty is to serve the public and one should follow the culture and line of duty rather than being careless because when you are responsible only then you can prevent the wrong doers and motivate others.

Ganatantra Diwas 2070 / Republican day Nepal May 29 2014

Nepal was added as the latest edition in the Federal Republican list. For most of the citizens they barely know what a republican day stands for, in-fact most of the people celebrate this day as a national holiday to dose off from their daily work and pressure.   

But on real grounds Nepal being declared a Federal Republic has no meaning to its existence. We neither practice the meaning nor do we have the legal rights. In any democratic system, people are considered the optimal power point, but here in Nepal the practice has been opposite.

People have been said to be the focusing point, but they have not been given the power. Their power have been taken away by their so called political leaders. These political leaders in absence of a political culture are practicing nepotism, corruption, manipulation, favoritism, criminalization etc. in the name of politics and public. The real meaning of federalism or republican means giving public the ultimate power to rights and justice of rule of law.

Looking back at present situation it has already been 6 years, since Nepal started its journey towards a new system, but still after six long years and billions of rupees being invested. We have not even been able to get our constitution. The constitution making process proves to be a joke that ridiculously appears as a cartoon or a discussion of illogical ideas with no ending  that has no meaning?

What’s the use when we elect and send these political leaders to make constitution and they are not even capable of making one?           

The country where the people or public have no voice and where the political leaders are the superior power there is #nodemocracy . It is just a formality of so called hypocrisy.....
In real democracy people have absolute power or mandate to choose and not being imposed.........

World Heritage site being ignored

During the ending of  every fiscal year places are ripped off just for the sake and in the name of maintenance. In the name of emptying the remaining budget, construction  takes its peak. The metropolitan city and its management are something that is more political than public oriented.    

Apart from that in the absence of proper traffic management the world heritage site suffers traffic congestion, and parking problem.

Modi makes it clear Nepal and India relationship will flourish in BJP's regime

India is buzzing with the General Election 2014 and with the trauma of results the Indian Congress Party has no option except to keep silence and to resign from the respected post on moral ground where the practice has been well seen and felt. Yes, The Bharatiya Janta Party(BJP) has nailed the Indian General Election of 2014 held to constitute the 16th Lok Sabha, electing members of the  543 parliamentary constituencies of India. It has been tagged the world’s longest election running in nine phases from 7 April to 12 May 2014.
According to the Election Commission of India, around 814.5 million people were  eligible for voting where the voter population increased by  100 million since the last general election in 2009.

Perhaps the concerning issue now for Nepal is, in view of making the present government the Preponed Nepal election of 2013 now stand with a question mark of what is called an identity crisis. As far as the Nepal Election is concerned,  the then Khil Raj’s Government was pressured and hugely supported by the then Congress Allianced Indian Government to force the election of the Constituent Assembly (CA) prior the Indian General Election 2014. Now the question is what kinds of effects will it have on the diplomatic relationship and foreign affairs. Will it be treated valid and considered diplomatically correct or will  the BJP lead government try to infiltrate the political alliance government to re-election in Nepal?

Or what kind of role will the  BJP government try to play in the ever changing political scenario of Nepal?

Though, the Nepali political leaders are very optimistic and assured about the  situation, but with the ever changing vulnerable political situation things do not look and sound good.

On one hand political gurus are expecting a huge shift in political power sharing mechanisms whereas on the other BJP has been solely supporting the ideology of Hinduism, Speculating that there are chances of king gaining power can be yet another possibility.

Modi has already declared that Indo Nepal friendship will further flourish in BJP’s regime and he has personally announced to visit Nepal first after his official take over in the government. Nepal’s political leaders do not sound reluctant about BJP winning the election, but  like said political leaders breed on diplomacy and foreign affair that is more diplomatic and  flexible. So lets cross our fingers and wait for things to for the best.

Content is not the king SEO is the KING

Add caption

As we all know these days Social media and micro blogging sites are getting popular and with that technology and people's perception is also changing.  The bulky text or content which used to flower the online pages has been replaced by crispy text, info graphics, videos and images. The website that use to be full of content and keywords have been transformed into responsive designs with retina display and one page layout highlighting the theme of engagement, reach and immediate conversion. Focusing the new designs,  conversion is the main Mantra. 

It's like people have less time to read, they want information at instance and they want it in graphics than long exaggerating content. By saying this I am not trying to demean the importance of CONTENT but to a level in this world of fast technology people are more grasping the mobile integration and technology in their life business and everywhere.

From smart houses to TVs to smart phones everything is getting smart, even the online website and its content has been tweaked to become more recursive and innovative in every aspect of its navigation and use.

It is a simple formula in the race of survival that if you are not available in mobile then you are nowhere. Your visibility is less and has no meaning if you cannot meet your competition.

Even big companies and brand have made it compulsory to market themselves  adopting new trends like why would news websites like BBC and CNN need social networking sites. In fact reality is in their prime time they pause to say check out faceboook link  and likes in our page.

Perhaps, why would  big brands like Coca Cola or Pepsi need to make a website or join social media, but they have felt the need and presence to be present online because it matter for their brand and marketing name. They want to be present in every aspect of showing their brand value online.

So whether its  Panda or  penguin or humming bird algorithm the concept of todays Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is to make your website more informative, qualitative and  more responsive towards the users. Making a fake website or stuffing keywords, or having too many outbound links or referral link is not going to make any difference. What matters is the value of information that is understandable and for that it has no criteria. The trend and presentation might change exploring  the trend of technology and people’s mindset, but the core value will remain the same.
- Value of information
-User navigation

It's not about the level or quantity of CONTENT but its about the value and how people are reacting to the presentation. Google algorithm has been changing it's evaluating mechanism, making drastic changes from having a limitation of keywords to proportion of graphic used for outbound links to the use of geo tags to cross linking of social media etc. It has been live examples of how Google is trying to adjust and adapt. Similarly, with all these  changes, what we must understand is with any content or any portal the main thing that matters is originality and presentation.

With globalization and different algorithm, your website is on the verge of constantly being monitored and evaluated by the Google crawlers that checks and updates the cache memory. These memories are stored as tiny bits of data that Google keeps checking and indexing every now and then. The google indexing is not just a scanning process, but it also uses it to cross verify and evaluate the information.

If the Google finds more difference in its crawling caches and indexed files than it directs the website link to various google webmasters as errors. if the errors are not rectified then  it directs the web-links to  Google sandbox that literally shows no visibility and reference no matter how popular your website or blog is.

So one must be very careful about the layout of  information and about changing patterns of design that we all try to do. Google evaluates a website not by its graphical  assortment it evaluates a website by its technical easiness of user navigation, user choices and clicks and genuine traffic and its sources.

Just by giving good design and qualitative content it's not enough, you need to optimize your website according to certain standard with a definite strategy and keywords. Every page needs to be targeted by demographics and optimized.

Nepal Investment Bank one of the most insensitive and very very sad services

I had my first bank account opened in  Investment Bank Pvt, LTD in early 2000. I think it was my first bank account but I still recall the bad services and amount of money that I paid in return  and lack of customer care that was there. Specially in the Putalisadak the customer was seriously bad if you ask them what to do they would shout back gone are those days (10 years back), I even fought with one of the customer care officer when she behaved and complained it to the manager once. Though things have changed and its was ages back but that reputation still precedes me in the fade memories, so I never recommend NIBL to any of my clients and offices.

In fact you would be surprised that I have paid more money to the bank than the bank has paid interest to me. It is so true due to the low balance charges, I have paid the bank many times in the past for having a low balance. Thank god the central bank abolished the system and now people are saved but still every year they do have their ways of taking money from the public in the name of service where they provide limitation in the name of customer care and long lines.

I think NIBL still has miles to go where they have to improve at individual level where they have less focus but one thing that they need to understand you never know who that client is and how that client might be doing marketing on their behalf.

Every year they Charge VISA Card
1. VISA card year 400 New
2. VISA renewal Nrs 250

Now if you look at their VISA card, it is  one of the worst. Every time I issue a new one it breaks from the same place. The quality of the VISA card is so thin  and sad that it is very very weak and sad quality. I think they purposely keep the quality low so that they would be able to issue more cards.

It is one of the lowest grade VISA cards, I do not why they have ranked this bank one of the top most banks in Nepal. Even at ground level the normal clients and customers have to wait for long ques for general services.

With all the dissatisfaction and pain I finally decided to close the account so I went and inquired about the process, I seriously wanted to give away my account. I was asked to fill a closing  requisition form and was informed that for closing an account  they would charge me NRS 500. I was like what the F@@@@@@

Then another girl from the bank gave me a smart solution why don't you opt for the 1 rupee account where changing the account had a nominal cost of Nrs 300 and i would just have to maintain the 1 rupee in the account so i change my account type and I am happy.

Talk of Ktown: I am a tax payer and I need my security

Kathmandu city is stunned with Akshya Kumar. The so called press is following him everywhere, making him a hero in the front page of newspapers to social media’s Newsfeed, he is everywhere. Going through the pictures, I noticed something that really surprised me. In one of the pictures he is walking around with plenty of police personnel as security.    What the hell?

In this country, I am a legal public tax payer and pay my taxes on time with 5 digit figures every year and I don’t get any security and bloody a foreigner who is not even a taxpayer gets dozen of security personnel.

 What kind of policy is this?

If I go to a police station and launch a complain then they will not even register it, they will first ask to investigate and only after that looking at the severity they will decide whether to launch FIR or not. Whereas in normal practice once a person goes to a police station, it is the first duty of the police personnel to launch and register the complain but in Nepal that’s not the case. I think this is the reason why Nepal police has a high crime resolving rate because they fail to register or address most of the cases that comes to them either they suppress it or ignore it.

You need status and authority, even for registering a case. If it’s a so call hi-fi VIP then it will be done by instance, but for the local normal public they would have to WAIT…………………
We need to change this in the system. It has to change, police is there for the public not to discriminate, we have to make people understand that tax payers  need the respect that they deserve and the top on the list are the civil servant who ignore and neglect the tax payers. They have to know this, that taxpayers are their high priority  and they have to be  abide by the law.

Just think how sad this is
"There is no rights to justice when you are vulnerable, you have to strive and that is what is wrong"  

STOP BEING VULNERABLE.......................

FNJ is back with its political swing for its election

Once again the social media are in full swing use with the promotional advertisements of election for the candidacy of the executive committee of the Federation of Nepalese Journalist (FNJ). Different social networking sites are bombarded with election materials and information about the affiliation of political parties for the individual candidacy promotional purpose.

The FNJ is the mother organization  of all the journalists all over Nepal but due to its political influences and bad reputation, the FNJ has been labeled a political influenced organization.
Time and again the election of FNJ and its candidates have been questioned with the  association of various political organizations, but with the growing trade unions and political parties playing a major role in the economy, Nepal journalism has been controversially influenced at its core level.

So labelling Nepal's Journalism accuracy on the basis of political influence, Nepal has no standing grounds.

On one hand the direct involvement of the memebrs of FNJ in political organization directly questions the relevancy of the check and counter mechanism in and against the political organization where as on the other, how can a political influenced organization be a federation of all journalists that has no morale and ethics.
