Facebook is not a threat but it’s the way you make yourself vulnerable,

With the growing popularity of social medias and social networking sites, the world is bombarded with sites like facebook, twitter, HI5, my space, google plus and many more. The trend has not only grasped from teenagers but has been seen as an addiction for adults. The platform of social network has grown so much that everything is possible from business to marketing and everything. Likewise, adapting technology, especially for a country like Nepal where there are more than 0.9 million facebook users, a serious question has been raised regarding the use and monitoring mechanism of web space. As the fraud cases and cyber bulling cases are increasing we are lacking behind with tolling number of cyber crime cases.
For instance anyone can log in and create a fake Id and harass anyone. Apart from that we lack technological awareness concept where we fail to recognize the concept and power of technology. I think a heightened program about awareness regarding facebook and its safety measures should be introduced under the computer subject or if possible some sort of interactive program be developed where student would be taught about the vulnerabilities and how to protect themselves.

Facebook is not a threat but it’s the way you make yourself vulnerable, because the next victim could be you.

JISM-2, A Disaster at its best

JISM-2 is a movie made targeting a certain group of audience, specially the audience of Sunny Leon or her fans; if more than that it’s a complicated movie that takes ball to watch. I’m not joking the promos and advertisements may look hot and sexy but once you sit down there is no entertainment. Even the intimate scenes lack conviction. Loud dialogues and weak characterization pushes the movie towards a boring and hard to understand the movie.

A lover’s hate is the worst of its kind is what has been focused but the twist and turns are so limited that it bores the audience. A porn star trying to act a role of a PROTOGNIST both in real and in the movie sucks. Sunny Leon in her debt makes no use of her skills except for the breathing technique that she uses throughout the movies. Perhaps, she is highly inspired by BABA Ramadev’s breathing technique. The movie flows in all direction giving no clue of the story, you would just feel lousy with the skin and explicit scene moving everywhere and sunny Leon having a feast seems delusional. Having said that one good thing about the movie is the acting of Randip Hudda , who sounds professional and has done justice to his role. But moving on with the scenes his character is also not well defined. The only thing that is highlighted is the skin and scenes of Sunny Leon. IZANA sounds horrible and desperate in her expressions and dialogue delivery.

On the other hand the intelligence office AYAAN in his desperate attempt of love sounds possessive and artificial. Man!!! his role moves on from one end to another ending up with Sunny Leon in her arms.

In every movie, it is said the story demands explicit scenes but this movie is the opposite, the movie make the scenes and that too for SUNNY LEON. Most importantly sunny Leon is questionable from every direction. The detailing in the movie is missing and at times the audience can feel what is being missed? Being a bit reluctant JISM-1 was a way more statically correct than this. No matter what it had rhythm and the story flowed in a direction.

A movie that wasted my money, JISM -2 is a PG porn movie …………………….

Telecommunication industry in Nepal, a question of options…

Communication and technology has advanced so much that cell phones have become an essential part of our lives. We use cell phones and its services like anything. From the wake up alarm to calculating future forecast-zodiac signs everything is possible with in a press of a button. One thing I’m really amazed of is in this tussle of service and marketing options things have changed but there is no relief to the public. The prices of services have gone up and quality options are there but the clients are bound to suffer in number of ways.

1. You cannot leave your previous number

2. You have to pay extra money

3. You have to face bad services

4. Your complain goes unheard

5. You have to carry more mobile phones

“Reality of today if there is service there is no network and if there is network there is no service,” so where is the STANDARD?

Now getting down to a more practical approach a cell number is not just a number. It’s an identity or it’s who you are? No-matter how easily you may say if you need service then opt for the quality one, then what’s the big fuss, where is standardization?

In-fact the customers are burdened to carry two lines NTC as well as Ncell. As they cannot leave the NTC as it’s their older number and Ncell coz it’s quality. I have seen number of people who carry two phones why because it’s not a choice but it’s a compulsion.

I was shocked and amazed when I saw an advertising saying 1.75 per minutes to US using the 1424 by NTC that’s like super cool. I was so tempted by the advertisement that I even used it number of times and to my satisfaction the service was good. But somewhere in my mind I started to compare it with the existing plans and services that are available. You know calling US was cheaper than calling Nepal than what’s the use? Where is our telecommunication industry moving, the service of calling Kathmandu to Kathmandu is bad and the outbound calls are cheap and good. What a joke…….?

Likewise, another issue is these days private telecommunication companies are more focused towards easy distribution of their connection or expanding their network which to some extent is correct from their point of view but what about the quality and standard, do any of these companies follow any norms. They rarely care about any other thing. They work as money making machine where they focus on loud offers and marketing option which in return comes back to us in the form of higher tariff rates so where the government regulator body and what is it doing…?

One thing I could not understand is why aren’t we getting proper service? The infrastructure is there, the mechanism is there, then where do we lack and what should the public expect…

For instance Ncell has the best quality service but once you make a call the money flows like anything where as if you look at the NTC then they have the cheapest service but relatively the quality is down.

Last time I was using my Ncell calling on the same line for about 2 -3 minutes and walla Nrs 8 gone. I cared less but what about the tariff rates and what is happening around? Hello Ncell to ncell is that expensive god save me. Relatively quality matters but hey in a long run money matters as well. It’s the same company that marketed Ncell to ncell free during its beginning days.

I bet the standardization in telecommunication is a big issue that has been ignored in Nepal, the Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) the regulatory body of government has been monitoring and controlling the mechanism in a more upper hand way where they manage the bandwidth and bandwidth line but they care less at the public service sector. STANDARIZATION is a more prominent issue that starts from the point of the service generation to the point of its use and impact, but I guess the NTA fails to realize this. At public service level they hold no presence and quality has been subsidized that’s manipulated by companies in their respected ways.

“We need services but with standardization is our demand”

Our Constitution Gives us the right.................

You might be amazed with the fact that it’s hard to get an application registered in Nepal Police METROPOLITAN POLICE - CRIME DIVISION Hanumandhoka. It’s pretty shocking to know that even in the center of Kathmandu something like this is happening. If you have anything like a complaint or any other legal issue and when you go to the police administration for report they fail to recognize your version. I mean to say, they fail to accept your application written by you. They ask you to follow a formatted written application written by the so called “lekhandas” who sits outside the office. The charges for a normal application start from Nrs 100 to 1000 depending upon the case.

What a joke? Even to register a case you have to pay money

Shocking and amazing thing is our constitution gives us the right to write an application but the Nepal Police administration fails to realize this. They want a formatted application from the “lekhandas”
and it doesn’t matter who or what you are but the format matters.

Why should I go to the lekhandas when I’m an educated man and I can write my own application? My constitution gives me the full right to write an application. My question is why……….?

Just imagine being an education man, what would a poor and uneducated man do in this case? It’s completely absurd that for a poor man who has been hammered on with a treachery is asked to pay money to report a case. Is that what we call service and is it fair?

Another shocking thing is, if you write a complaint then the first thing for any application in a government wing is to be registered. But especially in the Nepal Police Administration they do not register the case. They just accept it and fail to give you a registration number.

What can we expect from an administration that fails to realize the importance of service? It’s a small thing but it has a great impact.

“The country is not ruled by big policies but its ruled by empowering public, when the public feels secured and feasible that’s when development starts or else it’s just a matter of numbers and hypocrisy.”

Prachanda Path-- The joker has one more trick up his sleeve

Recently the Baburam Bhattrai's led government announced that Nepal government would give facilities of car, and security to VIPs. The announcement was hugely condemned and highly criticized from all sectors. In midst of that recently prominent leaders like Ram Chandra Poudel of Nepali Congress, Madhav Kumar Nepal of Unified Marxist-Leninist (UML) Party and Jhalnath Khanal of the same party returned their vehicles to the government. Their move came in action in support of the huge criticism from the public and other sectors but the most shocking and amazing thing is even Mr Pupa Kamal Dahal the Supremo of the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) also returned his Toyota Parado to the government. It is completely illogical and absurd why he submitted his government facility.

In one hand the Baburam led Maoist party declares the facilities and services where as on the other hand the same party's Chairman returns the vehicle to the government.

What should the public think, is it another politics or should we assume that there is a new plot written to divert the attention of the public ?

Corruption at its best

A week back, the world was shocked by the scam and corruption charges of Mohamed bin Hammam, Chief of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). His audit report showed embezzlement of hundreds of millions of dollars from the AFC official bank account where the name of All Nepal Football Association (ANFA )President Ganesh Thapa was also mixed with the scam.

The most intriguing thing is having all the proof nothing has been done to ANFA President Ganesh Thapa till date.

Associated Press directly quotes, “Gaurav Thapa, whose father heads the Nepalese federation, received $100,000 while a Filipino football official Jose Mari Martinez received $60,000 and had $11,226 in hospital expenses paid. Another $50,000 went to an East Timorese football official Francisco Kalbuadi Lay, the audit found.” ANFA president Ganesh Thapa has been charged with misappropriation of funds in the past but was given a free pass by the Nepal government.

With huge allegation and rumors Ganesh Thapa made public a public statement in Avenues Television saying, “ Bin Hammam used to be a close friend, I borrowed the money from him. This was in 2009. The matter was settled in 2010/11.”

What sort of statement is that how can a person give you a loan of USD
100,000 that too on personal basis from an official organizational account. It's not justifiable, you should have considered the consequence, you should have considered the image of Nepalese Football industry. Mr Thapa if you think Nepalese are that dumb then I think you have to reconsider. I believe the CIAA should take the things in matter and start the investigation and if he is found guilty he should be brought by books.

It’s a direct form of corruption which cannot be ignored, the position he holds and his responsibilities are immense to the job and future of FOOTBALL in Nepal

Football in Nepal is related to national pride, how a person with such an image can be related with a field? How can he be given the responsibility of managing the dreams of millions?

How can we trust him to lead the national pride and what can we expect?

Its not glam photography its skin photography


This is to the level, I could not stop my self laughing out loud.....LMAO , what is this? A young woman in her desperate attempt to be popular is being pushed to her limitations. Just have a look at this picture, does it look sexy or hot or in any way appealing. The girl herself looks scared that she might tip off.

These days the Nepali Modelling Industry specially the on line is going bazook with showing and highlighting private part of Female Models.

In most of the cases the photographers push them but without the affirmation of the models they cannot do anything. But my question is why are the female models so desperate in taking off their cloths.

Most of the online web portals have these types of pictures that highlights nudity and vulgarity then art or anything. Women look like dairy product showing off their mammary glads and its pathetic. What can on expect from such photographer and models

Looking at these picture I would just say, It's vulgar-vulgar-vulgar. Today Nepal's modelling industry is degrading with such acts where as on the other hand there has been a prominent development as well.

The HIMALAYAN TIMES FASHION WEEK is yet another event that has been promoting and focusing towards grooming new models in a more standard and appealing way. The models are selected in a more rigorous and precises way where they are trained and groomed for more than a month. They are given the adequate training by the professional and most importantly they are well paid through out the session.

On one hand the industry is facing crisis with skin photography where as on the other there is a better option of holding your identity and presence. Now the choice is for the Nepali models who want to be famous, you want to be known as the XXX or the YYY.

Nepal Traffic Police Sucks ………………….

I left my house at 9:00 from Paknajol for my office in kalanki within second I reached the Bisnumati Bridge, before that I saw few traffic police checking the blue book and license. It’s very rare that they check all the people passing by but I rarely encounter them as they target the young and naïve riders. Just few minutes away in the bridge the traffic was halted and within seconds it was crowded. Reason a big water tanker in the mouth of the bridge could not pass as the traffic from other side was just pouring in. Due to this the other side was completely halted. Seeing this also the traffic police who were there few minutes away checking the blue book and license turned a blind eye. The line grew like anything where the one side traffic was pounding and the other side was completely halted. The situation was so worst that people started shouting at each other. Then an Armed police force security car came in and started to look into the matter but like said they are not the expert, they also tried their best.  We few of the guys got out of our bikes and started to give way for the traffic and the flow were set back to normal. Whose fault is it?  I was bound to think, what is the priority?  To check the blue book and license or to relieve the traffic. The priority is what calls for emergency measures but the traffic police of Nepal fails to realize this they are bound to follow their order. If the PM was coming probably they would clear the road making the public halt but when it comes to the normal public they just know one thing how to give trouble and problem as who are we?

Everyday it’s the same story and every day people are bound to suffer and the department pays a blind eye. Is it the fault of the tax payers who pay taxes and don’t say anything or is it the problems of the civil servant who fail to realize the responsibility toward the public.

HIGHWAY - The Nepali movie a Big turn off

The new movie HIGWAY is said to be based on a real story  but how admissible is it for any movie to use the so called Glam factor and to highlight the "sex sells concept" is my concern. It is high time when we all realize and say no to such concepts and a eyes opener for the Nepali Movie Industry  to be more  sharp and diligent about such issues. On contrary, the movie has tried to raise few issues which can be seen in the PROMOs but it also highlights the negative aspect of our society which is harsh and obvious. What can you expect from a movie that caters a woman’s nudity to sell a movie and where are we going?

I think we the young generation should Boycott such movies, it’s not the need of the story it’s the need and mentality of the director. I have seen the song and the way it is picturised is VULGAR. More specifically  putting an item song to make it hot and happening might highlight the need of the story but how palpable is it from a social point of view is my concern ...........

The thing is Loot started the trend of foul language then following that every other movie copied it in the name of commercialization and every other movie has a demand of SEX scenes and nudity. To be precise it has developed as a trend where the weak mentality of producers and directors have made it
a compulsion for easy catch. with such scene and songs people will look into it or else controversies is always there to spread the news.

The question is not here about what social issues the movie raises, the main question here is about the social impact and what message it is giving?

SEX sells is a reality but are we ready to accept this is a fact. We all know this but to its shadows it also has its consequences which needs to be understood and researched. The main heroin  RICHA SHARMA  may look sexy, hot and voluptuous but  she also look VULGAR.

The song may bring in few audiences to the Theaters but what about the IMPACT. Are we giving people the right definition and meaning of cinema……………  

The trend of following the same genre of SEX sells attitude has corrupted the minds of Nepali directors, they can’t think beyond the chollis and bar girls performing.

I think the Nepali directors know how to make and sell movies but Is it a compulsion to put nudity and sex saying its a need...............?
