Online journalists arrested for defamatory case in Nepal

Three journalist Santosh Bhattarai, operator of the news portal www.nepaliheadlines.com, Puskar Kandel and correspondent of the portal Sushil Panta, were arrested for publishing an online report that brinjal  being used by girls as sex toy to satisfy their sexual emotions in the government college.They were  charged with defaming the Dillibazaar Kanya Multiple Campus by writing indecent and defaming content in the news portal.

According to the Electronic Transaction Act 2008, any person, who commits cyber crime, is liable to punishment with fine of up to Rs 100,00 or maximum jail term of five years or both.

Shree Rai, "This is major case of negligence, the journalists of Nepal need  to abide by their code of conduct. They should consider the role, impact and effectiveness of the content before publishing anything that is related to the pride and prestige of any organization. Personally,I feel its a case of Defamation and the Journalists should be brought by the book. Padma Kanya is a prestigious organization which has its image and with such news the impact upon the prestige of organization can be well thought."

FNJ and Press Council infiltrating and protecting such journalists shows a weak practice of protecting its members.   Such journalist should be banned from the field, added she

In recent development, on Sunday Press Council Nepal (PCN), Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ) and Dllibazaar Kanya Campus have agreed upon a  five-points agreement to release the online journalists. The agreement highlights to take immediate action against the accused after an investigation and the campus to withdraw the charges against them.

An answer for Sufyan bin Uzayr

Mr Sufyan bin Uzayr in his article his article  Nepal: The View from The Top Is Not Pretty writes, "Nepalese economy is marred more by the disparity in income and poverty, as well as cultural issues.Nepal is situated right below where Tibet used to be (and while we are at it, also slightly near to the Kashmir region), and I hate to sound so pessimistic, but you have another historical contentious issue in the making between India and China.Sadly, the majority of the Nepalese people do not understand or grasp this fact; as a result, environment-damaging practices continue unaffected and unhindered."

What Mr. Sufyan bin Uzayr has written to some extent is a limited edition of what is available in the websites. I would probably say it as a immature writing. I think his research needs to be more refined in aspect of reality and what's really happening?

Nepal is an under developed country and for every good reason, it is trying its best in managing its economy where tourism and foreign revenue are a huge boost to its support.
Due to its geographical location and diplomatic relations, it is bound to limit its opportunities and other endeavors. The reach of Internet and telecommunication is growing, similarly education rates have gone up, various awareness programs are breaking the orthodox tradition of women related issues,
local villages are transforming into business centers, this is not just an example of where Nepal is leading but one can visualize the efforts.  One thing what Mr Uzayr needs to understand is Nepal is not an ordinary terrain like India, Nepal has a vivid wide terrain which makes it beautiful as well as challenging from all sides.

Looking at its Natural resource capacity, its water resources is its strength where especially if you look at the current scenario, Indian state is exploiting the broader treaty by making dams on its borders and taping the water resources drowning and causing unwanted flooding in Nepal's Region.

Apart from that technically looking at Nepal, Nepal has been a play ground for various super powers like the US, European union, Indian state, China etc not just to counter each other but moreover the vested interest prolongs with the regional diplomacy to business exploitation to other strategies and other issues of concern.

Likewise, if you look at the political scenario, the so called Maoist Revolution( people's war) that took the country to a new phase has been an important part of learning for Nepal's Politically upfront. Corruption, favoritism, Nepotism, etc has gone up but on contrary the country is moving in the path of no discrimination which counts. Moreover, Nepal has been declared as a secular country.

Nepal's leaders have been hugely influenced by the India strategy where the out-casting of the monarch was a conspired plan to make Nepal vulnerable.
Time and again the interference of the regional diplomats in the territorial strategy and other issues have topped newspapers which can be researched online.

Regarding climate change, UK funded projects like Xtreme Everest are being carried out in the Everest region for the sake of Humanity. May be Nepal has not been able to grow and show its power but it has been facilitating many countries in proving their economies and consolidating their pride of being powerful.

Nepal certainly is the youngest republican country which deserves its share of presence and independence. If only the regional and diplomatic concern could stop interrupting and its leaders could understand the values of its sovereignty then Nepal can stand proud with its new image...

US Hypocrisy with PRISM

Today’s world war is not about how many fighter planes, tanks and nuclear missiles you have, today’s war is about  how you can control your enemy’s strategy entering or hacking your opponents system and making them obsolete knowing their strategy.

The US PRISM program under the national security is the loudest example of United States's HYPOCRISY infiltrating and monitoring  the world. United states being one of the top most superpower  monitoring and hacking the world wide web in the name of national security is just unjustifiable. The US National Security Agency (NSA) has been continuously monitoring each and every content with the help of super computers in tracking and tracing your audio, video, photographs, emails, documents, and connection logs.

The surveillance is done in association of major leading webs portals like Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, and Apple. The organization have been compelled to disclose all the information with regards to the national security.

Right to privacy is not just a question of human right but its an objective of ethics.

 In fact its high time to take stand for what has been going on. Compromising privacy in the name of security is not just a malpractice but is a concern that can bring inevitable consequences. From National security to personal data to frauds anything and everything is possible, which cannot be imagined, the consequences depend upon the intentions of the US and the objective of why this surveillance has been set up. Lapse of right of privacy not only make us weak and vulnerable but it is a weak practice of  internet governance that showcases weak moral values...............

with such rooted actions US capabilities are just limited within the values of what US stands for. Power stands with the weakness of what being laid down upon what it stands........................

CYBER WARFARE IS THE next level game of super power and diplomacy......................

what will happen in this country..........

During the period, the Department has distributed 48,816 ordinary passports, 154 special passports, and 52 diplomatic passports, said Deputy Spokesperson at the Ministry, Dr. Durga Bahadur Subedi.

As many as 39,000 youths have taken labour permit for foreign employment in the same period. Similarly, the Ministry has taken initiatives for promoting economic diplomacy, according to Subedi. 

After reading this news, I was seriously bound to think why so much of brain drain is happening and why the Nepal government is doing nothing. It is a serious issue of Human migration that needs to be tackled or else the country will be emptied.

A majority of this work group try for work opportunities in the middle east and other go abroad in search of better future. No matter what  my question to all is why are we lacking to understand reality of searching better future abroad when we all know that working abroad or life is not easy. I will not say its worth it but why to waste the most valuable time of your life abroad when you can make changes and do something for your own country. May be I  am being unpractical in this aspect in regards to the ideology of people trying abroad, but when you know life abroad is tough and hard then why go through it?

Can you imagine in just a month 39,000 passport have been issued that means a huge number of the productive youths are trying to go out of the country. If this youth force goes out then who and what will run the country. The question again hinders, there is no answer to it. Understanding the theme to the meaning of saying "this country has been run by pasupatinathi" proves to fit perfectly in this scenario.

Reality is with limited job opportunities, worst government practices and a hypocritical trend of going abroad  the youth of Nepal are bound to search for better options.There is no security, no future prospect, the country's system is fully corrupted and politics is ruling all field, then what to expect, is what they say.

Young people  have skills, education and capacity but they don't have opportunity is reality but understanding the fact opportunities has to be created. The saying where there is a will there is a way is the answer to the solution to all questions and allegations.

It's your right to go any where int he world but you have no right to accuse or blame once you leave the country..............................

Nepal in way of making a republican nation

Five years back, we dethroned monarchy system in Nepal with the aspirations of creating a better Nepal, but still after facing years of trial and error method, the country has not been able to evolved from the treacherous influence of communism. 16,000 people lost their lives which have proven to be worthless, and there is no  rule of law. For what did we  faced the struggle is my question.

We removed one king and today we have thousand kings who live among their  people ruling and terrorizing the public with their criminal approaches and strategies. 

What more can you expect and find within a country that survived civil war and trying to make its way through development. The struggle of the past decade has pulled the country backward in every aspect of its management and operation, where we have become slaves of foreign donation and aid. Nepal's development efforts have just been limited towards utilizing the foreign aid. We have emptied our homes community and towns sending our brothers and sisters to foreign countries in view of earning money.

What can we do? There is no security for normal public, the rates of women violence has gone up, crime rates have gone up and criminals in association of politicians are legalizing their status what more worst can you expect. You acquire a degree and there are no jobs, the government policies weak in every aspect of providing employment opportunity. 

There is a saying that says, “If you put cold water in between hot water then gradually the cold water changes into hot.” I have always tried to relate this scenario with our country which hold its image among the giant super power India and China. But reluctantly I know the reality that Nepal cannot develop with such political leaders and political culture that professes the ideology of party politics, corruption, nepotism etc.  

Even at government administration level the situation has worsen so much that the governance or leadership of the government has been handed over to the bureaucracy which is leading the country nowhere. How is it possible in a democratic country that reflects the image of Republican have a prime minister with no consensus? It’s like the jungle rule that influences the government with money, power and corruption.The difference in between the haves and haves not is increasing more, the country faces huge economic crisis in coming days.  

Reality of today, Nepal was made Republican in retrospective of the political aspirations that influenced the strategy of divide and rule. Nepal being a republican makes a clear platform for the foreign power players to play their games, it is just their strategy that challenges the sovereignty where Nepal faces great hindrance in its future.

In a country where the GDP rate that is blow poverty line and which has been marked as a under developed country, how can the nation survive with futile policies and leadership. We need education, health, resources and infrastructures not states and province. How can this debate be ended that its not about the governance or ruling its about the facilitation and how its can be managed? 

If only our so called political leaders would understand and make it work Nepal could be somewhere else than this.

no one is responsible in this country

May 20 2013, the summer has just landed and with the temperatures soaring up to 20 to 30 F, people are easing with the rain. Rain is considered one of the most benefiting factors with regards to land but in the city area with concrete running everywhere due to lack of proper drainage might result in as a big problem.

Having said that I'm not against the rain but the lack of proper management of sewage system certainly makes you think where I am going.  It can be  a disaster during the rainy season  where the roads become rivers for drainage. Like such, it rained today and the roads of kamaladi were spill over by sewage that stinked and blocked the road, restricting people from commuting.

What can we say its a Metropolitan city with big corporate offices and the drainage spills over every time it rain, its one of the most pathetic examples of Kathmandu Metropolitan city (KMC) management skills. at least they need to be tight with their jobs in assuring  a proper drainage system. We pay taxes to the government for this and its is lack of carelessness shown that makes the public suffer.....

We all have to bear this in regards to no one hearing public outcry but it has to be managed as it affects us. Apart from that many of us have well appreciated the road expansion strategy of Nepal Government  but with such volatile situation of electrical wires running around you never know anything can happen.

who is responsible for public safety management ?

I don't see the government, the political parties and any other institution  then why should we Bloody pay taxes to this Government when there is no management.....................

If this is the case then why should the public pay taxes

Cheap publicity stunt or not

Traffic Inspector Sitaram Hachhethu dancing in the middle of the road 
Traffic Inspector Sitaram Hachhethu was seen dancing to the beats of rhythm, might sound amazing but its true, today  morning at around 9:45am  (May 16 2013)  near the Durbarmarg police station inspector Sitaram was seen dancing and entertaining the traffic with a loud music.

It seemed as if sitaram was trying to enjoy his work but it looked as if he was doing circus in the middle of the road. One thing that was very certain was  it was not looking natural moreover it looked like a cheap publicity stunt pulled for popularity. With high influence of politics and popularity, Nepal's government administrative body is  full of talents.
May be done intentionally or not but Sitaram with such image and prestige should have at least thought about the prestige of his institution( Nepal Traffic Police).

More or less with a prestigious image and responsible trying to imitate others might not seems a good idea. In the recent past an american traffic police was seen handling the traffic dancing with a Walkman in his ears but Mr. sitaram had to do it big so he brought in big speakers and boomed the road with heavy music that at peak hour. How logical is it for a traffic police to do it in such a manner that too during the peak hours with such loud music is my question?

what can we expect from police personnel like him ?

Lokman becomes the SUPERMAN of Nepal

 Lok Man Singh Karki has been appointed as the Chief of Commission on Investigation into Abuse of Authority (CIAA) by the president for six years term amid a program at office of President, Sheetal Niwas on Wednesday morning. The appointment has been hugely criticized and termed un-constitution by political gurus.

 The Supreme Court on Friday has issued a stay order at the appointment of Karki till the next hearing on April7.  A single bench of Justice Sushila Karki issued the interim order to halt the appointment process till the next hearing. The apext court has also directed both defendants and petitioner to appear before the court and asked the defendants to furnish a clarification on why Karki was being appointed to head the CIAA.

 The ‘High-level Political Committee’ of UCPN-Maoist, NC, CPN-UML and UDMF had recommended Lokman Singh Karki to the Chief of Commission on Investigation into Abuse of Authority (CIAA)

In the past CIAA had convicted Karki of and declared him not eligible for the government services in future. Karki was accused of suppressing the People’s Movement-II (2006) during the regime of King Gyanendra Shah. He was also accused of amassing properties through illegal means during his tenure at the Department of Customs as director general.

The student organizations including the ALL Nepal National Free Students Union (ANNFSU), and ALL Nepal National Independent Students Union (ANNISU)-Revolutionary are on protest and demanding a quick resignation and further investigation.

CIAA is the state of anti-corruption agency in Nepal.

LOKTANTRA DIWAS or loottantra

Today is LOKTANTRA DIWAS hundreds of so called shahids died for it and only few group of people  are enjoying the loot-tantra. Billions of rupees were wasted in marking and reclaiming the pride and prestige of people but unfortunately there were too many issue of party politics, people's individual ego and so many things that the country was lest prioritize. The nation should have been the priority but it was the least, our political leader made it worst indulging themselves in power politics and corruption. They degraded the pride and prestige of their name where today a the word Neta is considered a slang....

Nation first, was never a condition it was just a slogan for the political manifesto...........

Democracy believes in equality and law by the book but a country like ours that follows the rule of corruption, nepotism and favoritism, things are more biased and manipulative. We have a President who aspires to have been redeemed because of his cast, we have parties that believe in communism and they have million of dollars, our poverty rates have gone up,  reservation gives upper hand to a janjati when his percentage is less and a qualified person has to draw back because of his cast etc these are the achievements of LOKTANTRA

We need a standardization in terms of politics. Politics in education sector is wrong, political parties doing anything and everything for the benefit of their party is wrong
Country should be the priority  not the party ........

The country needs intellects not reservation, the country needs good leaders not politicians..................
I'm not celebrating this LOKTANTRA because I fail to believe in this LOKTANTRA and this system.


KYC- kill your customer....................

Most of the banks have asked their account holders to update their information in compliance with Nepal Rastra Bank’s directive of filling the Know Your Client (KYC) form where most of us think it is done against corruption. But reality is KYC is not just being done for the purpose of public it has been imposed by the US government with pressure to blacklist us if we do not take initiative against the money laundering. Nepal was in the line of being blacklisted internationally for failing to comply with international money laundering rules and regulations. The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), a global anti- money laundering body, was considering blacklisting Nepal if the government had failed to introduce a law against organized crime. In a worst-case scenario, all banking correspondence could stop, and flow of aid and grants come to a standstill.
If blacklisted, foreign banks may not approve the letters of credit issued by Nepali banks. Such a scenario will also severely diminish Nepal’s prospects of getting foreign aid and investments. 

The KYC forms is based on Anti Money Laundering and Combating Finance to Terrorism regulations, that require detailed information of the account holder, including citizenship certificate numbers and issue date of the kin, including that of grandparents, parents, sons, daughters and daughters-in-law. Likewise, the banks also require proof of address or the details of landlords. Know Your Customer refers to the procedures needed to be undertaken by financial institutions to identify and understand their customers in order to detect any sign of abnormal financial activities in their account. The insistence by banks that customers provide the citizenship numbers of their grandparents has irked account holders the most. The forms that require the citizenship numbers of the customers’ grandparents and daughters-in-law seem to keep potential customers away.
