Boys you want to tie up with

Posted in assignment, love and Relationship, My life, Satirical and humorous by Shekhar on May 20, 2010

What types of guys Nepali girls often fall for? Isn’t it a interesting thing to know? Well, even girls might be unaware of what type of boys they have fallen or wish to fall, so let’s sneak to the two categories of Nepali guys with whom, generally, most of the Nepali girls crave to tie-up with. Classification of this sort may seem absurd but activity of guys often speaks a lot about choices and opportunities of their love-relationship.

If you see any tough guys who, most of the time, are glued to their i-pod, laptop or mobile fall under this Care-Free Type (CFT) what Nepali girls like to tag as ‘Houde’ in Nepali. You may find him physically fit with perfect body shape and acceptable height, if not  rigid stare and ‘Who cares anyway?’ look. These guys are very choosy and always hunting for girls who are very sociable, talkative and annoying because they want to secure their space in the relationship and compensate for what they lack since childhood or what they want to have in future.

CFT guys often prefer to look trendy. We  get to see their T-shirts printed with foreign music bands and not to forget, their pants are torn at the knee level which make them look like a star in the eyes of Nepali girls. If i am not mistaken, CFT guys prefer to have dread hair, expose tattoos in their arms and own a 220 CC PULSAR bike. Such guys are undoubtly standoffish except in parties or coincidence meet, but once you hang-out with him, you are going to get what you wanted. Girls find very thorny to break the ego of CFT guys. Be sure, these guys are never after the beautiful girls but the one who stands out in the crowd in terms of economy and social status. Don’t expect smile from such guy in a single glance or you may have to endure embarrassment in your friends circle, making you vulnerable to fall for him.

CFT guys are found to be already involved in confrontational situation, so girls may be the scapegoat of their aggressive and violent manner. If you have already  fallen for such guy, than you are going to regret a lot because either your relationship is going to end up with a nice break-up party or he will ditch you to catch another girl.

Ah! here comes another Decent Guys Type (DGT), some girls always dream for, a clean and tidy, regular and conscious guy who is responsible for every deeds he takes under his charge. This is often rumored as ‘Kya Ramro keta’ among Nepali Girls. Stupid girls may find him boring and sluggish but his patience, silence and questioning traits may be mistakenly taken as his either weakness or lack of fashionableness. But some girls are very clever and intelligent, they often track such guy without his awareness and catch-up easily with him which paves a safe way to their happy and prosperous life. Girls might misunderstood DGT’s all-time sneers as a green signal to fix up dates which often result in those girls swallowing snickers (chocolates) lonely to mitigate their temporary depressions. Once such guy fall for a girl then he is going to make her stick to him for his  whole life, unlike short-term relationship in the case  of DGT.

CFT guys are often swayed by fantasized thoughts as presented in hollyhood movies and exaggerated advertisements but DGT’s are all-time practical, conscious and intelligent.

CFT guys are dependent, often manifest their loneliness in the absence of their intimate circle and find difficult to adjust with strangers while DGT guys are very independent  and can make themselves comfortable in any kind of environment.

CFT guys are coward, messy and reckless while DGT guys are influential, brave and watchful about anything going on around them.

Now,  choosing DGT or CFT  is Nepali Girl’s cup of tea, so i wonder which type of guys Nepali girls want to tie up with. What say?

भ्यालेन्टाइन डे मनाइयो चटक नियाल्दै

Posted in Culture and Society, love and Relationship, My life, Satirical and humorous by Shekhar on February 22, 2009

संगीत आफ्ना खुट्टा लाठ्ठीमाथि राखेर हिड्दै , ढोल बजाउदै ।

संगीत आफ्ना खुट्टा लाठ्ठीमाथि राखेर हिड्दै , ढोल बजाउदै ।

“वाहिर वाहिर जती नै तीनको चटकको रमाइलोपन इन्जोय गर्दै मुख च्यात्दै हासेपनि भित्र-भित्रै भने हामी गम्भिररुपमा प्रेरित भइरहेका थियौं  र अहिले पनि छौं ।

बसको सिटमा आखाँ तन्काई- तन्काई हेर्छु, बाटोका छेउँ-छाउँमा फर्केर हेर्छु, अनि वाक्क लागेर रेस्टुरेन्टको बार्दलीतिर चिहाउँछु, जताकतै जोडीहरू छ्याप्-छ्याप्ती । एउटा केटिको त एउटा हातमा गुलाबको फुल, अर्को हातमा त्यसको ब्वाई फ्रेन्डको हात देखेँ, अलिकति “जिअलस” त हुने नै भएँ, “आज भ्यालेन्टाइन डे भएर हो, नतरी कती दीनपो टिक्ला र ती जोडिहरुको लाइफ केमीस्ट्री भित्र-भित्रे मेरो मुटु अटसमटस भइरहेको थियो । आफ्नो हात हेर्छु , दाइने हात दाइने गोजिमा अनी बाँया हात बाँया गोजीमा ।

कोटेश्वरको जेब्रा क्रसिङ्गबाट बाटो काट्दै थिएँ, झन्नै पलसर बाइकमा मच्चिदै आएका एक जोडीले ठोकेनन्, हुन पनि त्यो दिन तीनकै थियो, अरूको त बालै भयो नी तिनीहरुको लागी ।

रनीया चटक देखाएपछि आफ्नो पारीश्रामीक माग्दै ।

रनीया चटक देखाएपछि आफ्नो पारीश्रामीक माग्दै ।

आधुनीक युगका सच्चा प्रेमीका प्रतिमुर्तीका रुपमा उक्सीन चाहने त्यो भिडमा म आफुलाई एक्लो तर नितान्त अलग्ग महसुस गरिरहेको थिएँ । कसरी मनाउने त भ्यालेनटाइन डे? आफैलाई प्रश्न गर्दा एकछिनसम्म त अनुत्तरित नै भएँ । फेरी मनमनै निर्णय लिएँ, ” आज त कमसेकम केही विशेष काम त मैले गर्नै पर्छ ।”

धुलिखेलबाट काठमाण्डौतर्फ जाँदा बाँयातिरको सिटमा बस्दा एउटा विशेष अनुभव हुन्थ्यो । जडिबुटी पुग्नुअगाडी एउटा पुल छ जसको तल मनहरा खोला बग्दछ । कोटेश्वरको जामले गर्दा सवारी साधनहरु मनहरा पुल भन्दापनि अझ टाढा लोकन्थलीसम्म लामबद्ध भएर बस्नुपर्ने स्तिथि काठमाण्डौबासी, भक्तपुरबासी र काभ्रेपलान्चोकवासीको लागी नौलो थिएन । जामको बेला सुस्तरी बस मनहरा पुलबाट पास हुन्थ्यो र मेरा आँखा मनहरा खोला ओरीपरी अव्यवस्थितरुपमा छरीएका बस्तीतर्फ केन्द्रित हुन्थे । त्यहीबखत अनेकौ प्रश्न, खुलदुली अनी असन्तुष्टिका जालमा म जाल्लिने गर्थें ।

कहाँका मान्छे रहेछन् ? त्यस्तो सुङ्गुर बस्नेजस्तो फोहोर ठाउँमा कसरी बस्न सक्छन होला ? बाँचेपनि कस्तो जिवन, न आजको अत्तोपत्तो छ न भोलिको । एकपटक त एउटी अधवैँसे आईमाई त्यही खोलाको तटमा  नुहाउदै गरेको द्रष्यमाथी मेरा पापी आँखा परे, त्यो ढल मिसिएको कालोनकालो पानी आँफ्नो आँङमाथी खनाएको सम्झदा मात्रै पनि मन-मस्तिष्क सिरिङ्ग भएर आउँछ । कहिले कहिले त भारतका विहार-समुदायका जस्ता देखिने ती काला वर्णका वासिन्दाहरू दुई हातको लुङ्गी हल्लाउदै हिँडेको देख्दा कन्रट्टी तात्तेर आउथ्यो । “कस्ता धोती रहेछन् ? हाम्रो देश धोस्त पार्ने यिनै धोतीहरू हुन्”, मनमनै गनगन गर्थेँ ।

तर सत्यदेखि म धेरै टाढा थिएँ । वाहीरीरूपमा जे देखिन्छ, त्यसलाई देखेर जे अड्कल गरिन्छ अनी त्यो अड्कललाई सच्याईसँग तुलना गर्दा आकाश-पातालको फरक भेट्टाइन्छ । यो सत्यको श्रृंखला यहीनेर सकिदैन । आफ्नो अरूप्रतिको खोक्रो द्रष्टिकोण अनी आफ्नो कुनै विषयप्रतिको अबोधपनाको आभाष हुन थाल्छ । घमण्ड, द्वेष र रागजस्ता विकारहरूले आफुलाई भित्र भित्रै खाएको महसुस गर्न सकिन्छ ।

यसरी म र शहील वस्तीतर्फ आफ्ना खुट्टा लम्कायौं । म संग गोजीमा एउटा मोटोरोल्ला मोवाइल थियो । पर्स नबोक्ने भएकोले मैले पैसा मेरो कालो ज्याकेटको चैन भएको पोकेट मा राखेको थिएँ, धेरै थिएन ३-४ सय मात्र थियो । अनी सबै महत्वपुर्ण हामी संग ह्यान्डि क्यामारा थियो । खास त्यस मनहरा बस्तीतीर जाने प्रेरणा पनि शहीलकै थियो । वृत्त चित्र (Documentary)    बनाउने उदेश्यकासाथ केहि फुटेज लिनु पर्ने भएकोले यस भ्यालेनटाइन दीनलाई त्यही काममा fully dedicate गरेका थियौं ।

संगीतले पछाडी ढोल बजाउँएको शुरमा रनीया आफ्ना डान्स स्टेप देखाउदै ।

संगीतले पछाडी ढोल बजाउँएको शुरमा रनीया आफ्ना डान्स स्टेप देखाउदै ।

त्याहाँका छरस्पष्टरुपमा बसीरहेका अनेकौं परीवार मध्य हामीले भेटेका ३ परिवार भारत बासी रहेछन् । हैद्राबादको कानपुरको एउटा गाँउबाट आएका ती तीनपरीवारले कोही भगवानको मुर्ती बनाउँदा रहेछन्, कोही दैनिक मजदुरी गरेर जीविको पार्जन गर्दा रहेछन्, कोही नजकिकै खोलो नजिक गिट्टि कुट्टा रहेछन् ।

तर होम्रो ध्यान भने ती चटक देखाउने २-४ जना बालवालीकामाथि थियो जो त्यसै परिवारका सदस्य थिएँ । एकजना बालकको नाम संगीत थियो र अर्को साको वालीकाको नाम रनीया थियो । थर सोध्ने हिम्मत हामीमा थिएन ।  डाङ् डाङ् र डुङ् डुङ् गर्दै ढोल बजाउँदै सडक ओरीपरी खाली ठाउँमा चटक देखाउने ती वाल वालिकाको मीहिनेत र कलाको प्रशंसा मेरा शब्दमा सिमित गर्न नमिल्ने भएकाले म यति मात्र भन्छु की यती सानै उमेरमा आफै मिहिनेत गरेर आफ्नो र परीवारको जीवन-गुजारा गर्ने तिनको आत्म स्वामीभानबाट म र शहिलले चाँही पक्कै सिक्यौं । हामीले विहानदेखि साझसम्म तीनीहरूको हरेक कृयाकलापको निरिक्षण गरेका थियौं । वाहिर वाहिर जती नै तीनको चटकको रमाइलोपन इन्जोय गर्दै मुख च्यात्दै हासेपनि भित्र-भित्रै भने हामी गम्भिररुपमा प्रेरित भइरहेका थियौं  र अहिले पनि छौं ।

पहिलो क्षणमा जब हामीले ती चटक देखाउने बालकहरूसंग नजिकिन प्रयास गर्यौं । हामीलाई डर थियो कि कतै उनीहरूले हामीलाईपनि अरू लुटेरा, डाँका, किड्नी स्मग्लर, वालवालीका शोषकलाई जस्तै औला ठडाएर पन्छाउने हुन की भनेर  हाँसो ठट्टा गरेर जिग्री वन्न खोज्यौं । जब तिनीहरूले आफ्ना फोटो देखाउन त थाले तब हामीले चाल पायौं, यिनीहरूलाई फोटोप्रति खुब शोख रहेछ, अनी हामीले तिनीहरूको प्रत्ययक क्षणलाई क्यामारामा कैद गर्न थाल्यौं । समय समयमा ति फोटोहरू तिनीहरुलाई देखाउनु पर्ने थियो तर बेट्री चाडो सकिने भएकोले खाली-कालो ब्लाङ्क स्क्रीन देखाएर तीनीहरूलाई रोमाञ्चीत पार्नु पर्दथ्यो । कतै हामीले तीनीहरूको टेक्नोलोजीसम्बन्धि अज्ञानताको नाजायज फाइदा त उठाइरहेका छैनौं । मलाई भित्र भित्रै डर लागीरहेको थियो, की कतै तिनीहरूले हामीलाई बीचमै एभ्वाइड गर्ने हुन की भनेर । तर भाग्यवंश हामीले तीनीहरूको एक दिनको पुरै कृयाकलापको भिडियो फुटेज लियौं ।

म भित्र- भित्रै खुशी थिएँ । दूई कुराले मेरो मन प्रशन्न थियो । एउटा त मैले ती सुकुमवासी वालकहरुवाट धेरै कुरा सिक्न पाएका थिएँ जो शब्दमा मात्र सीमीत गर्न खोजेभने मेरो भ्यालेन्टाइन दिनको मिहिनेतको अपमान हुन्छ । अर्को मैले आफ्नो ब्लकको लागी एउटा पोष्ट पाएको थिएँ ।

Female in Nepali Advertisement Industry

Posted in Satirical and humorous by Shekhar on January 16, 2009


( This article was contributed by Alina Shakya and Usha Parajuli )

In this modern era people turn to different forms of media to know about the day-to-day happenings in their society. Media is taken as moral police to alert and question people about their behavior. But now, this moral police have suddenly increased the use of women as sex symbols to grab the attention of people in media. One of the major form of influential media in Nepal is advertisement which is often accused of portraying entire group of people in stereotypical ways, for example: showing women only as homemakers and elderly people as senile.

These advertising stereotypes have contributed to reinforce negative or undesirable views of these groups and contribute to discrimination against them. Studies have shown that the interpretation of role of a person in media or advertisements could fight for the elimination of gender and role based biasness or it can also encourage the same.

When we overview any form of media in Nepal, women are often portrayed as sex symbols or consumable good in many of them. Because of traditional concepts about homely women and their fragile and weak character, they are mostly preferred to be seen applying lotions and washing clothes rather than going office.

The development of advertisement industry has used women as the promotional item. They are shown as youthful and desirable commodity. Often they are shown as tall, fair, slim and (more…)

Media and Power: How politicians use media

Posted in assignment, Media, Satirical and humorous by Shekhar on January 16, 2009

(This article was written by Bhrikuti Rai and Tshering Dolker Gurung)

Much of what Nepalese know about their political leaders, party politics or public policy comes from the media especially television, radio and newspapers- the primary information link between the Nepali population and the political sphere. The media try to explain the government’s goal, policies, helping to mobilize and reinforce public support necessary for effective political action. They also focus on controversial policies and expose corruption and hold politicians accountable to public opinion. In reporting on politics the media help select the issues that are to receive public attention and help shape the public agenda. (more…)

मीमांसा दर्शन र वर्तमान परिवेशमा यसको औचित्य

Posted in Satirical and humorous by Shekhar on December 30, 2008
Hindu god

Hindu god

अथातो धर्मजिज्ञासा अर्थात वेदमा उल्लेखित हरेक शब्दमाथि धर्म जिज्ञासा राख्नु वा विचार गर्नु मीमांसाको मूल अर्थ हो । मीमांसा दर्शनलाई दुई भागमा विभाजन गर्न सकिन्छ । पहिलो पूर्व मीमांसा र दोस्रो उत्तर मीमांसा । पूर्व मीमांसाले कर्मकाण्डलाई प्रकाश पार्छ भने उत्तरमीमांसाले ज्ञानकाण्डलाई प्रकाश पार्छ ।

मीमांसा दर्शनको अनुसार कर्म नगरिकन ज्ञान हासिल हुदैन र कर्म सधै सत्यको पक्षमा हुनुपर्छ । मीमांसा दर्शनका अनुयायीहरुले कुनैपनि कार्य गर्दा इमान्दार र जिम्मेवारीपूर्णका साथ गर्नुपर्दछ । अरुलाई दु:ख दिएर, अरुको कुभलो चिताएर कर्म गर्दा अपूर्व अथार्त अलौकिक आनन्द प्राप्त नहुनाले मीमांसाकारहरु सत कर्मको बढो सतर्कताकासाथ अनुकरण गर्दछन्

मीमांसा दर्शनले यज्ञको महत्वलाई विश्लेषण पनि गर्दछ । यज्ञगर्दा अन्नका प्रजाती जस्तै धान, जौ आदिलाई अग्निमा घिउसंग चढाउँदा सेतो पवित्र धुवा निस्कन्छ, त्यो धुवा माथि आकाशमा जान्छ, बादल बनाउनमा सहयोग गर्दछ, अन्त्यमा पानी बनेर फेरि यही धर्तीमा फर्किन्छ । यसबाट यो निचोडमा पुग्न सकिन्छ कि मीमांसा दर्शनले प्रकृतिको सरक्षणमा विचार प्रकट गर्दछ र प्राकृतिक प्रकृयामाथि मानव हस्तक्षपको अप्रत्यक्ष विरोध गर्दछ । प्रकृतिलाई उर्जनशील र जीवन्त बनाउने मीमांसा दर्शनको एक मूल उदेश्य हो ।

यसरी मीमांसा दर्शनको वर्तमान संसारसंग तादम्यता खोज्दा मीमांसा एकमात्र दर्शनको रुपमा औँल्याउन सकिन्छ जसले वर्तमान संसारको अस्तव्यस्त परिस्थितिलाई प्राकृतिक स्वरुप प्रदान गर्न सक्दछ । मीमांसा दर्शनको प्रचारप्रसार राम्ररी गर्ने हो भने हत्या हिंसामा उत्रेका संसारका कतिपय हिंसात्मक गुटहरुलाइ शान्तिको मूलधारमा ल्याउन सकिन्छ । त्यतिमात्र नभएर मीमांसा दर्शन एकमात्र त्यस्तो बाहक हुनसक्छ जसले यस धर्तीका सारा मानवजातीलाइ एकै छातामुनी केन्द्रित गर्नसक्छ । विकसित र अविकसित राष्ट्रहरुको खाडललाइ पुर्नुमात्र नभएर सबैलाइ सत कर्मको पाठ पढाएर अध्यात्मिक विकासतिर पनि मार्गदर्शन गर्दछ । यसरी वर्तमान परीप्रेक्ष्यमा मीमांसा दर्शनको औचित्य अझबढ्दो छ ।

“Mr Don” was not so bad

Posted in Satirical and humorous by Shekhar on December 29, 2008

Had it not been for ‘ Sano Sansar’ this summer’s box office hit film, most urban youngsters would have found it difficult to recall the last Nepali movie they watched with so much enthusiasm. They readily agree to watch Hindi and English films over our Nepali films on any given day. After all, where would Nepali films stand in comparison to films like Titanic and Harry Potters series. The appeal factor is equally negligible in our Nepali film stars for their very youngsters who are so used to steamy scenes of Brangelina in Hollyhood films. Except for a few films, Nepali Film Industry has not produced movies that have been remarkable in any aspect be it in technicality or content. The once sought after industry seems to have been stagnant since the last decade.

nice one shekhar.!!!

few months back i had this urge to watch a nepali movie
So bought a ticket to watch this movie ” Thuldai” starring Shiv Shrestha, our very own Rajesh Hamal etc etc..jaado..
May be i was unfortunate in choosing the movie..that the story content was too too obvious and predictable.Too Many scenes and i mean too too many were mismatching with what we observe in real life,”Nepali life”.And though just 20 rs i felt cheated but seeing other viewers completely satisfied clapping, whistling and cheering for their favourite hero Rajesh hamal’s every power dialogues and entry . it was gud to see so many nepali viewers who still untouched by bolly, hollywood showstealers do not miss single nepali movie however mediocre.
This made me think, “thought of a hope”. hope that still something can be done..
Only the honest compliments and criticisms (only after watching the movie) can motivate/demoralise the makers and affect the nepali movie scene else we are going nowhere.

Roshan Kc at 8:58am December 26

while say all these..
I also respect people’s right to spend their hard cash on wat they feel worth of.
Truly i wudn’t bear any compulsion that i have to watch this movie just becoz this is a nepali movie and i have to support the scene.
Its my money just like everybody have their own.!!!
Cheers.

TEI TA YAAR? HAMI AUDIENCE LE AFNO TARFA BATA PANI EFFORT GARNU PARYO NI ? HAINA RA? WE SHOUDL ENCOURAGE OUR ACTOR AND ACTORESS
Shekhar Kc at 9:00am December 26

please if anybody got some nepali actors or related person in his friend list then plz inform me la. Thanks
Shekhar Kc at 10:14am December 26

i also respect that roshan sir but . Then are u not concerned about where will the money you spend for entertainment will go? If nepali movie then to nepali market, otherwise foreign.
i am not completely in favor of abandoning hindi or foreign movie and it is not possible in todays globalized world. but lets have some glimpse on our own native production and lets comment it or curse it or complain in forthrightly so that our films makers could get feedback from thier audience espeicall educated audience like us. Becuase the audience like i have describle in this article above just get satisfied with the hustling and bustling scene and noone or very less are there to coomment about the quality of movie. Those audience are untouched with Hollyhood and even bollyhood so Nepali film makers just enjoy monopoly over their bounded interests of watching movie.

But we should make difference? i am starting from myself.

Roshan Kc at 11:50am December 26

I think we’re pulling the same chord Shekhar.
But then again i wat i say is there should be no compulsion @ all to anyone.Yes i do sometimes go to Cinema hall n watch nepali movie but not of a compulsion of watching a Nepali one.
My Solution instead of discussions:
For eg.
“Sano Sansar was really good.” -this comment from me should actually reach its makers but no where do i send them to publish them in some cine magazines , i have no idea. And No i am not writing any letters and posting them myself to the makers. why would I ?It wud be gr8 if u/we/anyone cud manage some sort of platform(for eg from KU) to collect and dispense the criticisms to the creators.
I think better collections can be made @ cinema halls themselves.

i mus say,u hv done a brilliant job.well,about me….i dn think i njoy watching nepali movies..bt i really enjoyed reading ur notes…it’s llike a fiction,u’v presented it so beautifully….while goin thro it i smiled,laughed n noded my head in agreemnt wid wat u said..

Thank you Aastha! Honestly saying, this time i felt so much grateful to myself becuase i made you remember your memeorable days of childhood. this sound abit produy or egoistic but that was the truth not intention.

Saying about Nepali movies, they are not so bad such that we completely forget to watch them. By the way, Thank you for your comment

good thoughts, but we can’t go together with your views.”please give some of your glimpses to the brilliant work of our actors”– i wonder wat impressive intelligence u found on them.if u go for 2/3 nepali movies u ll find them almost same.its sure we backed some movies up like darpan chhaya,sano sansar.so its true if its of quality n creativity we all will be there to keep our eye on. hope they will switch n modify the trend.

Because I often make people laugh
But people laugh at me not at my joke

I am a politician
Because I play politics with my life
But my life doesn’t represent me truly

I am a good student
Because I study my books
But books are very thick infront of my thin mind

So , I am a psycho
Because my claims are very universal
But my logics are very ridiculous
Thank you

Bearing the Brunt of Democracy

Posted in Media, Political Affairs, Satirical and humorous by Shekhar on August 14, 2008

Democracy, the government of the people by the people and for the people, is it what our one of the greatest leader of the 19 the century had dictated. For me democracy is the rule of the majority party by the party leaders and for the partygoers. How long have we Nepali been bearing the brunt of democracy?
It’s more than 5 decade that we have been played in the game of hope and despair by the people we our self elect and pave their way to Singha Durbar. What we Get? The bold headlines of rescheduled all party meeting ending with no concrete conclusion, moody pic of our expert photogenic leaders on the front page of our leading national dailies (more…)

sad chitiz

“Enough is enough”, Reetu screamed loudly with her wild blowing voice and threw in four directions the bunch of flower in front of Chitiz pointing her warning finger at his nose tip. Hot blood running in the vein of her red big open eye could be easily seen when she angrily looked at Chitiz. Reetu ran away from there masking her face with regret and rage. A drop of tears felled at the menu kept at table while she was picking her bag. What could be the mystic story behind her tears that came at the time when she was totally in rage? In front of so many students and teacher staff sitting in the college canteen, Chitiz pretended to have some misunderstanding with her by showing his fake smile looking here and there, back and forth. What other else he could do? (more…)

Teaching: a noble profession

Every child needs and deserves dedicated, outstanding teachers, who know their subject matter, are effectively trained, and know how to teach to high standards and to make learning alive for students. This statement was quoted by former US president Bill Clinton in September 1988. In his address he had forthrightly stated that without well qualified, caring, and committed teachers, neither improved curricula and assessment nor safe school, not even the highest standard in the world will ensure the prosperous and productive future the students.

In foreign established educational institutes, to be a teacher one has to undergo series of tests and interactions beside their academic qualifications. Unlike, in our country, whether it a primary, secondary or higher level education institution, most often teachers are enrolled on the basis of their mere academic qualifications. (more…)

Politicizing minor Issues

I had gone for shopping in a near by market. While I was waiting for a bus to return home, at the very time I heard two people screaming with vulgar dialogues and were about to grip one another’s neck. There was sudden upsurge in mob of people from four directions rushing toward the spot. Before the mass could hear the conversation and know the apple of discord between them, somebody had already spread the rumor that a madhesi attempt to manhandle a local who was of hilly origin and had threatened to kill due to growing madhesi’s power in the country’s mainstream politics. Some even accused the madhesi businessman of boasting the vice-presidential position occupied by the madhesi leader.

I went near the spot and asked a nearby shopkeeper about the ongoing. I came to know it was one of the regular disputes between the businessman of side by wholesale dealer and his customer regarding the financial transaction.

The businessman was from terai background and the customer was local. After knowing this differing orientation of these two guys and on the mere basis of those fake rumors, at no time the mass gathering to view the dispute scenario were divided into two ideological groups: pro-madhesi and anti-madhesi. One group supported the businessman and started enchanting slogan ” Madhes Jindabaad” while other group supporting the local customer were chanting slogan against the madhesi people. Starting with the small dispute, the scene took the form like that of gang fight.

I took out my cell phone, dialed the local police post and inform them about the ongoing mess near me. A van of cops interfered the juggling mob and attempt to soothe chaotic scene. But it did not seem so easy. The mob started pelting stones at their van. At the mean time another two van of cops arrived and took the madhesi businessman and the customer to police-station for investigation. The locals who were mostly from hilly origin were threatening to impose band the next day if the madhesi was not punished severely.

I was very much obsessed with the way the local people were trying to politicize the minor dispute between two normal people by giving it a tag of racial hostility.

Dispute and misunderstanding are the part of our regular life and we have to encounter them sometime outside home and sometime inside also. If there is minor dispute between husband and wife, I am afraid people will not step behind to misinterpret it in terms of gender exploitation. Most of time whenever I go for shopping, I bargain for the price of the commodities I want to buy, but nowadays I feel very insecure to do so. Who knows if the shopkeeper happen to bag terai background or some uprising political party, I may be the scapegoat of their radical misinterpretation of my innocent actions.

With the rising madhesi’s domination in the present mainstream political scenario, there seems we have to encounter such incident frequently until we all universally accept that we all are nepali irrespective of race, caste, ethnicity and political background.

No Smoking Please…

Posted in Satirical and humorous by Shekhar on July 7, 2008

“Last puff is better than thousand kisses”. This was the theory of one of my colleagues which incessantly evokes him smoke till the burnt filter burn his black lips. When I cross questioned him, “Why you smoke so much?” I was astonished at his forthright reply, “It makes me relaxed, tension free and slow down pressure from my mind”. I became confused, if he was comparing mind with the toilet pan as if tension will be removed like stool flushed by water.

It is very high time for new SLC graduated who have already entered and are in verge of entering capital valley and other cities that they really need to ignore some of the humorous basis like above one to avoid being one of the smokers. Because it is quite shocking for them at first sight to see several poses of smoking within today’s so called “educated and civilized” circle of similar ages. Of course expectations of every new comers in valley reflects the keen interest in quality education and boundless opportunities but students fuming cigarettes of various brands wildly insist them to think as if students circle are given privileges to smoke. Why don’t they think about the immorality they are descending to their brothers and sister?

Those new comers will see advertisement, go to fancy cinema hall and even choose some of the prominent personalities in valley as their role model but what if these so called “educated and civilized” circles are seen giving a good pose of smoking in the roadside café. The first alternative a recently admitted innocent college student will opt to be one of those “civilized and educated” circle because naturally their unconscious heroism and strong want for proficiency is waiting ahead.

So it will be quite wise to see the hands before they shake and the people they admire with blind enthusiasm.

Who are not familiar with the health hazards of smoking? Even then the smoking among the most educated, civilized and generous students circle is not a new fact. A Series of scenes of smoking within circle of college students that is also near college gates must be quite humiliating for the concerned college administration. Why don’t they tag the fascinating pics of those smokers at the front page of their perspectives? Otherwise this critical issue should have withdrawn a forthright attention. Especially students from SLC level to bachelor are more prone to a bitter experience that is influence of smoking from their seniors, role models, advertisements full of propaganda.

Dr. Sam Ison of Lebanon High School said that he will be using new law to suspend the students caught smoking in uniform and near schools boundary though the district policy doesn’t allow them to do so.

Beside the individual effort, a separate governing body need to be founded on the behalf of student themselves that will track down the rate of smoking in public circle and declare the designated areas for smoking to avoid naked influence on students.
