Narrowing expansion

It seems like every time I abstain from using social media for more than eight hours, something drastic and terrible happens. When the US-Bangla plane crashed in Kathmandu, I was busy at work and was away from social media.

I personally love writing diaries and adore traveling. And yet, those two things have never been able to come together, conjugate into one. One of these days I plan to change it and so does the government with its ‘Tourism Vision 2020’.

Thoughts and prayers

As usual I was, lying on my bed, taking a rest, with a smart phone in my hand after a day’s of work. Suddenly friends of mine started to declare their safety status. Puzzled as I was, I was certain that something terrible had happened in eight hour’s durations.

A minute apart seems eternity with you An eternity seems like a minute passed

I am asleep, just like my government

Chaotic and hectic, that’s what my life looks like right now. With project deadlines and a never-ending queue of assessments and viva, I was engulfed with my own problems. And in addition to all this, our project wasn’t being accepted and we had to redo it even when final exams are a week from now.

Ideology vs Personality

Published On: June 24, 2017 01:29 PM NPT By: Sarthak Byanjankar

The current weather condition correctly personifies the socio-political temperament of the nation, or at least in the province of 1, 5 and 7. Along with the rising temperature, political landscape is in frenzy with former adversaries now allies and vice-versa. What is more peculiar is the tie-up between forces opposite in nature who in past couldn’t stand each other. Politics is said to be ever-changing, belonging to none and rightfully so. The new formed pact goes to show how unexpected this election is, with none wanting to take a chance and willing to forego their ideologies in hopes to win the coming election.

See no evil, hear no evil, and say no evil. This is the three monkey principle that every one of us has come across at one point in our lives. Additionally, our schools also preached the motto ‘Be good, Do good’. But what they fail to encompass is just because you close your eyes, the inherent evil in this world doesn’t dissipate, just like closing your eyes doesn’t transform day into night.

Morphed culture

It’s in the nature of every social animal; they inherit some traits from their surrounding and adapt themselves accordingly to better suit their existence. Humans too adapt themselves; morphing themselves to suit their respective environment. So people are bound to share culture, adapting to what suits best to them and foregoing those they consider to be a hindrance or a malpractice with respect to time. With time cultures merge making it indistinguishable from the other. So do the origin of rituals and true motives of our ancestors in establishing the said rules and regulation known as culture.
