The Bloggers’ Meet Second Time in Kathmandu

Posted on Updated on

Well, this is the second time that the bloggers meet in Kathmandu. I was unable to post the entry of the First Ever Historical Meet of Bloggers in Kathmandu. I was also luckily participated there but i can’t post about it on my blog, that was my “alchhi pan” also and a little bit scarce of time, too. But this time i don’t want to miss the warm opportunity to post on about the meet of Bloggers. Both of the meet were held on the hall of Freedom Forum, Thapathali. At first meet, we have decided to continue the meetings on every first Saturday of the month. At that meet, we had also discussed about the possiblities of the blogging in Nepal, its’ challenges and its’ hopes. We had discussed on the topics of how to increase its possibilities and how to increase on the numbers of bloggers and the readers. We also had decided for not making any formal registration of the bloggers coz it is itself and informal and self regulated as one of the form of citizen journalism but not completely as citizen journalism but as like a part of it and as like a plateform to show one’s desires and experiences. It’s a blog. But, we have decided to blog within the certain limitations and within self descipline.  

Specially, the second meet of Bloggers also centered on promoting the Bloggers and the Blogging. There were some new faces as well as missing of some old faces who have met on the first meet. The discussion centered on the plans of future perspectives of blogging and holding the workshops, trainings to assist on the technical parts of blogging to the bloggers and to give ideas and general conceptions to the prospective bloggers. We also discussed about publishing a book about blogging, the short history of international blogging and the history of nepali blogging and about the nepali blogsphere. We also discussed on the matters of planning on the ideas of holding a conference probably on the beginning of 2008 and awarding best blogs in different segments.

Specially, i would like to thank Mr. Ujjwal Acharya and Mr. K. P. Dhungana to make possible the gatherings of Bloggers and for making the BLOGAN (Bloggers’ Association of Nepal-note: It’s a completely informal association). Any blogger who wants to join the BLOGAN can email on bloganepal@gmail.com. And, i would also like to appeal to all the readers plz promote the possibilities of Blogs and encourage us to do more better on this field. Do comments on our posts. If possible be a blogger.

Only the time may differ, only the years may be late but you may get you beloved as per you dream. This is my wish.

Hmmm, today is the boring day for me also coz i am also alone as like the many of you guys. But, it doesn’t matter to me coz i believe in time and i believe myself. I think that there hasn’t come any suitable to me and as per my dream girl so, the god has never given a chance to fall in love with somebody else. Hehee……… just a way to compermise my heart. K garne afno chitta ta afaile nai bujhaunu paryo ni haina ra? Anyway,  i wish that my dreams also come true in the near future. And, i would like to dedicate this lyrics of the song “My Valentine” By “Martina McBride” to all you guys on the very lovely occasion of Valentine’s Day.

If there were no words
No way to speak
I would still hear you
If there were no tears
No way to feel inside
I’d still feel for you

And even if the sun refused to shine
Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart
Until the end of time
You’re all I need
My love, my Valentine

All of my life
I have been waiting for
All you give to me
You’ve opened my eyes
And showed me how to love unselfishly

I’ve dreamed of this a thousand times before
But in my dreams I couldn’t love you more
I will give you my heart
Until the end of time…
You’re all I need, my love, my Valentine

And even if the sun refused to shine
Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart until the end of time
‘Cause all I need is you, my Valentine
You’re all I need, my love, my Valentine

The Valentine’s Day is Coming…………..

Posted on Updated on

Hmmm February 14th is the day, the most awaited day in the year by all the lovers around the world. It is the day, as like the most important day for those who are in love and who cares their beloved the most. Well, there is no need of particular day to purpose, no need of particular day to express the feelings, no need of particular day to say someone that how much I care you, no restriction and no formality in the love. But, the Valentine’s Day is the day, the most meaningful day for the love and the day which believed that in this day, if someone expresses the feelings then it will be the immortal. So, let’s purpose to the person whom you care the most and to whom you love the most,  

 

Nothing else matters but you, would you be my valentine?

It’s a lonely road out there with no one else but my shadows, will you walk to make it worthwhile? 

What is a flower without the sun, what is the earth without the sky. What am I without you, that is why I tell you … I love you 

 There are lots of various sayings about the Valentine’s history, who was he, why he became the Valentine and how he became? There are varying ideas about what actually became of Valentine. The day, candy, flowers, gifts and feelings are exchanged between loved ones, all the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this day? The history of Valentine’s Day–and its patron saint–is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it the February 14th, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? There are three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred recognized by the Catholic Church.   One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families; he outlawed marriage for young men–his crop of potential soldiers.

Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.  Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons where they were often beaten and tortured. According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first ‘valentine’ greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girt–who may have been his jailor’s daughter–who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed ‘From you Valentine’, an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly emphasize his appeal as a sympathic, heroic, and most importantly, romantic figure.

 

Is it really love?
or is it just a passing feeling
am I not convinced?


a bit uncertain of the feeling

Is it the way you make me feel?
so warm with joy and laughter


or could it be the happiness
from moments spent together

The lasting bliss, the kiss I miss,

The sweetest thoughts without a touch
The heart that hurts and bears a scar
thinking how far away you are

You’re on my mind most of the day
And at night I go to bed and pray
An angel soft and gentle as you

Would make my sweetest dreams come true

 

Thinking about you alone or in class
Writing your name on my bathroom window glass
Wishing you were here
To love hold and care

Wishing I had you with me
To cherish and to stare i
nto your soft and beautiful eyes
As we both travel to the skies
And mingle with the stars above
But is it really love?   

Valentine’s Day is a day of love
Where love is as bright as the sun
We share kisses, and even a hug

With people we call our loved ones

Unrequited love is oh! so harsh
When the one you love doesn’t love you
You feel you’re left standing in the dark

Wishing this reality were untrue

Well that’s why Valentine’s Day is so great
It encourages you to show you care
It makes you just wanna say
I love you and will always be there

 

I once loved someone in this way
And I was encouraged on Valentine’s Day
I went up to her, just to say

I would like you to be mine not only for the day but forever in my life all the day

 

Wish U all This Valentine’s Day will brings a lots of joy in Ur life and Ur every dreams come true, every kisses reflects the signs of happiness, every seconds U pass together be the most memorable moments in Ur whole life and every feelings U share with each other will represents the beauty of the sky kissing the ocean in the evening with the sun sets.

Posted on Updated on

Preface

Nepal’s Peace Process had been gaining extra and ordinary successes. It had given a great example to the world for signing on Peace Agreement in a very short period of beginning of peace process and with the completely on the self strength of we Nepali People. People had started to take a breath of happiness and full of confidence. There started to sign brightness on the face of Nepali people. They were feeling a great proudness inside them for that they will be getting the chance of making constitution for them by them through the constituent assembly. They were hopeful towards the restructuring of the state. They were feeling satisfaction that they may also get opportunities on the decision making and policy making process of the country. They were exited for being the ruler of the country from get ridding of those poor and suppressed “raiti”. Although there are some suspects and threats on their dream, they were hopeful to be the winner over the regressive forces. Read the rest of this entry »

Continuation of A Fresh Report from Biratnagar: Madhesi Movement

Posted on

A Report by Ramesh Bhattarai 

 

Today also in Biratnagar, remained tense. People heard two different notices from miking in some parts of Biratnagar, one of from the CDO office about the curfew and the next about the invitation for the participation for the rally of madhesi people. Today the madhesi people had planed to violate the order of curfew, to enter the Biratnagar jail and then release Mr. Badri Mandal, one of the ministers of the time of king’s direct ruling period.  

More than 3000 people had reached to the bridge of Singhiya River at Hatkhola with swords, bamboo sticks, rods and hashiya linked in a long stick  on their hands as their weapons at 2: 30 pm. Police tried to  stop all of them  beyond the bridge, beyond the curfew area. But it becomes very futile and all of them entered the curfew area in front of the Biratnagar jail. It seemed that as if the police had applied very little force to control the movement. They damaged some public Buses parking in the side of the road, near hatkhola bus park. Then, police started firing the tear gas. After few minutes the mass was driven towards across the bridge. More than 2000 pahadhe people including women and children of Madhumara, Saraswoti Tole and Hatakhola were seen gathering in the sides of streets to view the crash between police and the madhesi people. They did not respond towards the madhesi people; neither the madhesi people attacked them. Still the madhesi people keep on attacking police with stone, catapult and bow & arrow. Now the police started firing tear gas to the madhesi people, but they returned the cells of the tear gas towards the police. This like crash continued till 7 pm. So the local administration has increased the time of curfew two hours more, till 8 pm. More than twenty people are told to have been wounded in that crash including the police and the demonstrationists. Three ambulances were seen standby near the hatkhola bus park. All of these were seen carrying the wounded people both police and the demonstrationists to the hospital. 

The madhesi workers who had been working (dish washing) in the pahade peoples houses at hatkhola, madhuramara have started to say that they could continue their works only in the morning because they have to join the rally in the noon and evening. One of the dish washing madhesi old women in my friend’s home told, she would get Rs 200 by joining the rally. Today my uncle came to my house Biratnagar form Karsiya in rickshaw. Karshiya is 15 KM east from Bitatnagar. He had to pay Rs 200 as rikshaw fare, as it was of Rs 20 in the bus. The rikashaw driver told he refused to join the rally although one of the local madhesi leaders had proposed him to give Rs 500 if he stayed in the front row and Rs 200 if he stayed in the middle or the last row of rally at the time of crash with the police. My uncle asked “why you denied that amount?” “It is risky. I could be killed or at least wounded in rally. Rather I can earn more than 500 a day with this rickshaw with out any risk” he replied.                                                                                                                                                                                                            Life style in biratnagar has been worsening. Pahade people have been entrapped in their own houses. It is heard that the madeshi leaders have assured their innocent activists to chase all the pahade people and accommodate the poor madheshi people in their big and beautiful houses.

Some of my friends live in Janakpur. Among them, Bishal Dahal is my very intimate and close friend. We have studied together from Bachelor’s level in Mahendra Morang Campus, Biratnagar to Master’s Level in Shankar Dev Campus, Kathmandu.

He is the person who always do the works in confiedence and can be in balanace to maintain every relationship. After completing the study of Masters level he has got the Job in one of the leading commercial bank and moved to Janakpur to begin his carrer. We all of our freinds felt very sad while saying him bye from Kathmandu.
