I fondly recall some special memories of early mornings when I was just a child more than two decades ago. I remember waking up to the gentle rustle of my mother's footsteps as she moved around the house, preparing for the day ahead. The world outside was still draped in darkness, but she was already shifting, driven by a purpose that resonated deep within her soul. It was during those early hours that I witnessed a ritual that left an indelible mark on me.

Green schools in Nepal emphasized the need for sustainable development of education and the integration of environmentally friendly practices within educational institutions. Nepal is very rich in natural resources such as minerals, water, forest, medicinal herbs and varieties of agricultural products.
The infamous Kulekhani-Sisneri-Pharping road has seen multiple accidents and deaths throughout the year. Had the Kathmandu-Terai/Madhesh Fast Track (KTFT) been constructed within the given deadline, the number of deaths we have witnessed wouldn’t have been so high. I took the same road, and to be honest, it was a disaster! My life was in peril!

Take a trip out of Kathmandu – anywhere. The hills are scarred, and it seems beyond repair. One should not be surprised to come across massive hills, even precarious and unsteady hillocks by the side of the road, being bulldozed and flattened to make way for plotting, village roads, eateries, and businesses. There is no method in this madness, merely greed. Generations will have to pay for the risks generated by this greed.
Listen up folks, Nepal is gearing up to unleash the next national budget, and the country’s National Planning Commission (NPC) is back in the spotlight. The NPC is akin to "Fishy" Dhamala — always in the media, but about as useful as a waterproof towel! The NPC has been busy concocting grandiose plans for Nepal's development while the rest of us are left scratching our heads, desperately trying to catch a decent Wi-Fi signal in our humble abodes! I mean, seriously, have you taken a gander at how much progress the country has made over the decades? It's like observing a sloth endeavoring to ascend a tree — agonizingly sluggish and downright painful!

In the quiet serenity of my home, amidst the hustle and bustle of my daily life, in a captivating world that exists within a glass enclosure a small but extraordinary creature glides gracefully through the water – a turtle in my aquarium.
This photo tells a story. The story of our remarkable protagonist! A former Maoist cadre turned deputy prime minister turned ‘corruption maestro’. Truly, a journey of meteoric rise and fall, fit for the annals of political comedy!
I moved to Nepal after a corporate life in the United States to grow old with Nepal, not considering the roads and certainly not knowing that I might get myself killed here. Thousands of meticulously calculated tenders are flying around offices, government bids and policies: Does any of them care about lives? Hardly!
If you're searching for a country that puts kindergarten classrooms to shame with its rule overload, Nepal is your jackpot! It's like the lawyers in this country are playing an epic game of "Keep Up with the Laws" that even they can't win.
