Nepal's political behavior and leaders sucks

It is UNFAIR that the whole Kathmandu has to suffer for the security of one man. There is a good traffic jam in Kathmandu  area inside the ring road just because the POLICE are diverting the roads to clear the traffic. As the upparastapati is coming through the Tribhuvan International Airport road. how logical is it just for the security of one man the whole Kathmandu has to suffer. It is insane the way these political leaders think. They are not the king or they have not done something proud that they should be given such levels of honor that the roads would be clear just for the sake of their passing by. They are the so called "Nokkar" public servants who are suppose to be credible toward the public and instead of that they create problems for us. Who gives a shit to them who respects them I would care for a taxi driver who earns his life by hard work then for a political leader who  makes the roads clear just for the sake and of security. Hypocrisy also has its limits  Nepal's leaders have crossed every limits.................................       

When will we grow, just for the sake of one man the whole Kathmandu has to SUFFER .................

New age facebook entrepreneurship

It might sound eccentric that facebook has established itself as one of the most effective ways of business here in Nepal. From Big brand to news channels everybody is entertaining their fans with activities on facebook, to be precise it has taken a form of a religion where people love to express and be themselves. Similarly, from fashion accessories to vegetables to shoes you get everything online in Nepal. It works with pay on delivery mechanism where people are happy doing shopping online in facebook rather than retailing it in outlets.

Pravesh shestha, a normal surfer said, " why waste time goigng to shop when everything is avilable online, you know its the 21 centuray and we have to be updated ."

Most of these business run on the basis of client to client service where the product’s photo is uploaded at first and the interested clients books it and messages their number and contact address. Within a stipulated time the delivery is done.
This method is getting popular as the goods listed are very low cost as compared to the market that too with the facilities of home delivery. Another attraction is the free delivery option which most of these businesses opt for where the clients are happy to save money and time.

According to recent data’s from socialbaker.com, there are 9,25,100 Facebook users in the Nepal, which makes the position of 67 in the ranking of all Facebook statistics by Country. Facebook penetration in Nepal is 6.65% compared to the country's population and 81.03% in relation to number of Internet users. The total number of FB users in Nepal is reaching 9,25,100 and grew by more than 4,65,720 in the last 6 months.

Sazeena Karki owner of 
Sattva-the stylebook says, “It’s all about the service and quality. People like our products and they order. We give them the option to surf around fashionable goods and to satisfy their  interest  they make sure the goods are fine during the delivery. It’s more like people are  online in facebook 24/7 and they like to use their time doing something meaningful. Shopping that too saving money is worth spending your time. Personally, I would suggest people to shop online as there is less operating cost so the goods are cheaper. You can be fully assured that goods sold are of good quality and standard. After all it’s the quality and standard that matters.”  

Over the past several years, Facebook ads have gone from being a new notion to representing the largest market share of online display ads. eMarketer recently published a report projecting worldwide social network ad revenues to grow by the billions. Over a four year period from 2011-2014, social network advertising is expected to grow from a $5.2 billion industry to a $11.87 billion industry. Of the projected $7.72 billion of social network ad revenues, 47% is anticipated to come from the United States. Facebook is expected to account for 68% of this revenue. That translates to an expected $2.47 billion of ad revenue generated purely from Facebook in the United States. From there, Facebook’s ad revenue in the United States is expected to increase to $3.31 billion in 2013 and $3.75 billion in 2014.
You might be amazed with this innovative idea but it’s true. It’s happening here in Nepal.  Just by using an email account one can start a business with a facebook fan page and you have customers from all over the world. The dynamics of internet makes it feasible to reach any part of the world. Internet for everyone is possible with young entrepreneurs emerging to find new opportunities where it’s practical and a viable method of new age entrepreneurship.

A steady shot for photographers NIKON VS CANON

There is a huge confusion especially for armature photographer to know what to choose, NIKON or CANON. The people who use NIKON say NIKON is the best and the People who use CANON say CANON is the best. Moreover, there is a good discussion that can take place but there are certainly technical things that an amateur photographer should think before buying a DSLR Camera.
1.       The cost
2.       Flexibility
3.       Lens option
4.       Picture quality

No matter how expensive camera you buy the only thing that matters is your creativity that makes a picture then too what camera you use.

Looking at the technical aspect you just have to learn how to adjust the ISO, Aperture, Shutter speed   

Aperture is ‘the size of the opening in the lens when a picture is taken
Shutter speed is the length of time that your image sensor ‘sees’ the scene you’re attempting to capture.
ISO (or ASA) was the indication of how sensitive a film was to light.

Okay so you want buy a camera CANON or NIKON ?
CANON - if you are an outdoor person and you want more lens option then it’s CANON. Most of the professionals use CANON because they have a wide variety of lenses available that is cheap and you will get more mega pixel. NIKON on the other hand has less option with very expensive in terms of lens but the quality is Good superior. The basic difference in between CANON and NIKON is the sensor inside; Nikon has a bigger sensor than Canon. Though canon has a brighter picture quality and bigger mega pixel but Nikon certainly holds its trump card with quality of picture in darkness, the detailing and contrast is phenomenal

so if you are buying a camera just think before you buy because it matters for who you are and what you want to click.

I love my country but I have no respect for my Prime minister

Yesterday I was stuck in a Traffic Jam at Putalisadak. The road was jammed because our so call his Excellency Prime Minister BABURAM was passing by. There was a big traffic jam and due to this  an AMBULANCE was stuck in the jam. The traffic Police had blocked the road for nearly 20 minutes where the AMBULANCE was making a big noise which the traffic POLICE could hear. But since the so called his EXCELLENCY PM was passing, the  road was pre-blocked 15 minutes before he passed. The Traffic police was signaling the ambulance but due to the jam there was no way for it to pass.
How relevant is it to block the road just for the security of one man when someone, a normal person’s life is in danger. what is the Priority a  JANATA's life or the security of the so call prime minister, What a joke?
A normal person's life stands  nowhere in the eyes of the traffic police  and the country but this is reality.  We live in the so called LOKTANTRA (People's Democracy) my foot. I seriously want to question this why is that during the king's regime we opposed this and the same leaders who supported and accused the king then are now doing it.
Do they think that political leaders have special powers that they can say and do anything or do they think they are superior beings that they have the rights to do anything. But I say it's us the normal public who are so limited by the fact that we don't even dare and want to say it because we are so busy with our lives and problems that we ignore it, "के गर्ने नेपालमा यस्तै हो " .  When something wrong happens it should be reported and said that's why we have CONSTITUTION  and LAW. A wrong is a wrong no matter who does it or to whom  it is related with.  We have the CONSTITUTION which is above all and their its written everyone  is equal and same but where is equality and where is the bloody LOKTANTRA.
I do not understand big words Mr. Prime Minster. I'm the janata and I want my respect and dignity which you have to give me because you work for me not for your party not for your family.
I pay tax and I have every right to say..............................
मलाई मेरो देशसँग धेरैनै माया छ, तर मेरो प्रधानमन्त्रीको इज्जत लाग्दैन   ।

Tax system in Nepal highly questionable

Mangshir 1 has been declared as a national Tax day in Nepal. From early morning people dressed up in black suits were seen shouting “pay your tax”. It looked as if the government was desperately trying to show its presence in the streets in regards to the normal practice of so call “CREDIBILITY”.
With rigid and tight policies, the government is very contradictory in its operations of regulating tax issue to the Public. Despite the difference in between the normal public and the business sector the police are more lenient and facilitating towards for the big players.

For instance, if you go to open a formal company or organization in Nepal, it’s just the lawyer charge and a minimum revenue tax of Nrs 2000 depending upon the type and capital of your organization. But when you try to close the same organization, then there are so many complications that you cannot even imagine. It’s like a nightmare that keeps you haunting like hell and you don’t even want to imagine.
A year back I had registered a company/ organization with the PVT Ltd, I had the will and zeal to do something and was very inspired.

Being taxation and a commerce student, I also had some insights on company details but after a year when I initiated the closure process I was shocked to know it demanded a huge amount of money that started from Nrs 15,000 plus.

Its pretty shocking how our government works may be to some extent, we all can understand the need and pressure to make the polices tight but regardless of that the complication in closure pressure is hugely contradictory in every possible means. The government’s roles and objective seems pretty narrowed down to the extent of just collecting the tax money. In-fact a possible role of the government should be towards making the public or citizens responsible towards the system in every aspect of making the tax system vigilant, transparent and easy where the role of the government is just limited towards revenue generation only.

I believe simplification in the taxation procedure is a need. We the citizens of Nepal pay taxes in everything thing from the garbage and sewage we discard to the water we drink and still the government has such rigid policies that diverts us from not being liable to the tax system. It is not about the punishment or paying it’s about being RESPONSIBLE and how you make yourself visible in the society, where it lacks its efforts.

Whether you talk about VAT or Service charge, the normal public has to suffer regardless of any type of services and facilities available. Why should I be liable to the tax system that is very rigid to the public? Why can’t the policy makers understand that tax payers are the most important part of the economy and when they are limited within the polices of the paying tax the credibility fades  

Why should I pay the tax if I don’t feel secure while walking in the road?
Why should I pay the tax when the road of the PM office is top notch and the road in front of my house is bad?
Why should I pay tax when I being a citizen have to stand in line and any other man with power could easily bypass  me using his power? 

Civilian supremacy is the need and right of every citizen in any democratic practice where a citizen should feel responsible not liable but with rigid policies and monopoly for a definite sector and people, Nepal’s tax policies make  us feel liable and we fail to realize this as our responsibility……………………..

Parking a huge problem in Kathmandu during festival season

The KMC and traffic police lack of management results in a chaos during festival season. Due to lack of proper management of street Vendors and Parking space, every year during the festival months Newroad is crowded with people.

As the festival of Tihar started from today, street vendors have come out to streets making the roads narrow. Traffic was completely halted where the parking space on the side of road worsen the scenario.
One can just imagine the road  being narrowed by the parking space and adding more fury the street vendors                  creating a chaos. Every year the same thing repeats again and again, every year  during the festival season due to lack of management by the KMC and Traffic police normal public are bound to suffer the consequences.

NRB SUCKS big time

Why is it so hard for a citizen to live? What is our mistake that our government keeps a blind eye towards the normal general public? Why is every time a tax payer is ignored in Nepal…?

It SUCKs big time when we the public pay taxes in everything and we are deprived and marginalized in basic facilities like education, livable commodities, services.

The government of Nepal SUCKs big time and Nepal Rastra Bank being the regulatory body is inefficient.

These days if you have to open an account do you know that you have to provide your details and your parents (mother +Father) plus your Grandparents (both) citizenship number and date of birth. What the F@############## !!!!!!!!!!
And to make matter worst you have provide your financial details about your transactions. Like how much cash you will be receiving or transacting in a month? What would be your mode of transaction? From where will you be receiving it?


Just for the sake of NRB trying to regulate the Commercial banks or hide its incompetency, why should I a normal citizen suffer?

Big political leaders having billions of rupees and black listed entrepreneurs walking the streets with heading their heads high is not a problem for the NRB or CIAA and I being a normal citizen of Nepal paying lawfully tax in everything have to provide my financial details and my parents citizenship info.

THIS IS WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Women Harassment in public is a question..........

3rd November 2012, Saturdays I saw few girls holding a rally in awareness of fighting against sexual harassment in Tripureshwar. I was happy as well as surprised. Happy because these girls were standing up for their rights and surprised because why isn't the government noticing this. Am I being too negative or loud about the issue? I guess being a man I cannot even imagine the effects of harassment but one can seriously look into consequence and past practice where people have committed suicide.
Right now when we are receiving billions of dollars in the name of Women empowerment and leadership how effective is it for the girls at grassroots level to feel in such a way. Isn't it a joke that we are trying to cater leadership in a society where a girl fails to identify herself.  What empowerment and leadership are we talking about when she can’t even move around freely ?

Someone giving a straight look at her making her feel uncomfortable, or someone trying to touch her but unnecessarily or someone offending her uselessly, what more bad could happen. A girl has to live her life in trauma and limitation of WHAT NEXT? This is not just a story but it is the story of all women and why nothing is being done is my  QUESTION?

The Drinking and drive campaign by traffic police proves that the government can do anything so just like that why can’t they make it instant actions to be taken for women harassment perpetrator. Don’t we have the infrastructure? Or people to deal with the situation? I guess its common sense; even the 100 can be used to report the harassment case and instance actions would reduce such activities. I believe if this thing was enforced women would feel independent and she could travel and move around with ease and that would be an achievement……

Why you should not travel to Nepal?

A small country with the explosion of color and taste, Nepal may seem lousy for those who are laid back but for the wild riders, Nepal has everything to offer. It is an exciting roller coaster that offers pictorial cascade highlighting the brink of its serene natural beauty to its rawness and rigid terrain. With high dangerous grounds and climates dropping down below zero degree, might sound uneasy to the normal ears but for adventure seekers it’s a life time experience. It’s not a way of life for the fate hearted but for those who like to push themselves to the edges, everyday is a new experience and exploration. Orchestrating the rich colors of tradition and culture to the advent of adventure sports like bungee, paragliding, canyoning, zip line etc to the world highest and deepest, you name it’s here.
Expiring the quotes of travel map, the hustle and bustle of the crowded streets may seem chaotic and the uprising concrete jungle may look un-managed. But within the stench it hides the ancient cities that embrace the temples where history speaks the language and people live their tradition. Every day the morning starts with a colorful bliss of the bells where people indulge themselves to the different festivity and rituals of colors. Frankly speaking it is a dramatic situation where people consolidate their presence in tradition and culture. With the Tradition of the living goddess KUMARI to the craftsmanship of Patan and Bhaktapur to the spicy food, it just makes you feel nostalgic in every essence of the happenings where you cannot find this experience anywhere else in earth.
However, the gentle hands greeting with respect and the sense of enthusiasm may not be familiar but the welcoming smiles makes you feel at home. From the butter lamps spreading the message of peace to the Mount Everest that stands tall as the world tallest, Nepal is yet another simple destination that holds loads of excitement and adventure.
You may be amazed with the fact that Nepal offers so much but the question still remains why you should not travel here; the only answer that comes up again and again is there is only one Nepal that offers the kaleidoscopic of tradition, culture and adventure, so it hard to resist. It may not offers the best facilities but it offers what the world has not seen…..

You have to stand for your rights. Just now in Thamel there was a big traffic jam created by the Nepal Traffic Police as they were trying to give way for a private tourist bus ignoring the traffic congestion.

Just becoz the bus belonged to a reputed organization doesn't give it the right to do anything in the middle of the road. The tourist bus was a priority so the whole traffic was blocked and nobody was saying nothing.  

I parked my bike on the road and questioned them why they were doing so the traffic police threatened me of confiscating my license and then i shouted this is wrong and 5 other people came and they said sorry...........

I believe public servants are there to look after the public, they are not private workers. Pubic should be their first priority and then the rest. Once they realize this and give priority to the public only then they will get respect.......
