The concept of ethics and dignity have been at the forefront of philosophical and scholarly discourse for centuries. Ethics refers to a set of moral principles that guide human behavior and decision-making, while dignity refers to the inherent worth and respect that every human being deserves. In a world that often values material gain and personal success over ethical behavior and dignity, it is crucial to recognize the vital role that these concepts play in human life.
The chilly weather of December had my classmates engage in chiya-talks at the nearest Khaja Ghar from our college. My curiosity got the best of me and within minutes I found myself being an audience to their "rajnitik guffs" (political chit-chat). The speakers were the enthusiastic boys from my batch who had read almost every politics related book, from BP Koirala's 'Aatma Britant' to Sudheer Sharma's 'Prayogshala'.

The 18th of February is observed as World Pangolin Day. However, most of us are still unaware of the existence of this unique and significant animal. So, what the heck is a pangolin?

The police and the media should stop harassing the former prince and stop acting like a pack of hyenas that want to boss a wandering lion that has lost his brothers and is alone in the savannas of Africa. Lions themselves are social animals when among lions and we all know that the hyenas practice nepotism in their social groups. You can prove me wrong if you can present new scientific reports about lions and hyenas.
The next elections are scheduled for November 20. We all should take this as a golden opportunity and cast our ballots such that we don’t have to repent for the next five years.

I recently traveled to Nepal for my summer holiday and it was an amazing trip. I learned so much about the culture, clothing, beliefs and the food. But there is one subject that has drawn my attention. Although many people might find this normal it certainly is injustice to me. Everywhere I go I see these poor street animals that are in a terrible state.
When I was studying intermediate level sociology and mass communication, an elderly relative touched my heart with the following Dashain blessing: "I hope you find a job in a development agency."
