A thousand lives gone, a billion hearts moan

I might sound insane but I cherished those blinking seconds of past 12 hours observing the state which was nearly divided by the political and religious earthquakes had now united against the natural earthquake.

Giving back to Kathmandu

August 30, 2016 23:45 PM

Behind that shiny glass of a Volkswagen, a handsome face popped out. Seconds later a can of Coke was hurled out of the car’s window down to a nearby footpath. The man must have been quite rich, obviously because he drives a Volkswagen, and from what I could notice, he looked educated as well. And my imaginative head took him up as the kind of rich and educated man who keeps complaining about our government and lashes out on Nepali leaders for ruining the nation.

As Bihar becomes the fifth state in India after Kerala, Manipur, Nagaland and Gujarat to implement total prohibition on drinking, there is a daily hide and seek being played out in the bordering districts between those used to drinking and authorities who are up to the task to ensure that they don’t.

Thank God! I wasn’t born during the Cold War – the proxy clash between US’s liberal democracy and the then Soviet Union’s socialist communism. Rather, I was born in Nepal during the summer of 1991.

Ethnic language and English medium education

August 3, 2016 10:00 AM

On February 1, 2015, a post appeared on Facebook. The post was by a Newar student who had lost his mother tongue after he joined his English Medium School. About 15 years later the student gives some suggestions to his school on how to promote ethnic languages. He admits that if his school had only allocated time and place he would not have lost it. He would have assembled a group of students and teachers and conversed in his mother tongue at least for 30 minutes or he would have even conducted some cultural programs. By doing so, he would not have lost it as he had.
