Here is an interesting riddle between a Nepali and an American Friend that I have got in my mail. I felt it interesting and put in this blog. So, you guys also may enjoy it. Have a Fun.
Two men, one American and a Nepali were sitting in a bar drinking shot after shot. The Nepali man said to the American,” You know my parents are forcing me to get married to this so called homely girl from a village whom I haven’t even met once. We call this arranged marriage. I don’t want to marry a woman whom I don’t love…I told them that openly and now have a hell lot of family problems.
“The American said, “Talking about love marriages… I’ll tell you my story. I married a widow whom I deeply loved and dated for 3 years. “After a couple of years, my father fell in love with my step-daughter and so my father became my son-in-law and I became my father’s father-in-law. My daughter is my mother and my wife my grandmother.
More problems occurred when I had a son. My son is my father’s brother and so he my uncle. Situations turned worse when my father had a son. Now my father’s son i.e. my brother is my grandson. Ultimately, I have become my own grand father and I am my own grandson.
And you say you have family problems…. Give me a break!!”
Well, this time also, the bloggers’ meet became much fruitful. The main attraction of this meeting was Mr. James Gomez, a Singaporean Blogger as the guest of honor. He is a person with a versatile characteristics. He is a politician, a blogger, a activist of human rights and democracy etc. He shared a lot experiences of Singapore, the politics & the situation of Singapore, his blogging life and a lot about him. He also gave suggestions and ideas of how to promote blogging in Nepal, how to impact on the political development and the situations of the country, how it will be easy to work as a blogger, how to move as per the needs of the situation and as per the political perspective of the country, how to become professional etc.
We also discussed a little bit about the visions of BLOGAN, our future activities, mentaining self discpline, healthy blogging etc although we have decided to discuss in brief about it in our next meeting with maximum numbers of bloggers as possible. The details of the meeting can be viewed in :
Nepali Voices and wonderful posts in Deepak’s Dairy , Hamro Blog and in Nepal Info.

This is the picture of my favourite place Nangedada which i had visited few weeks ago. Due to the problem of our camera the fresh pictures can’t be seen clearly so i have posted here the picture taken from the google earth. Promise that, if next time i will visit again the place then i will post here fresh pictures clicked from the camera.
The Sunkoshi River is flowing on the right side fo the Nangedada and there is the Bhote River on the left side. This is my favourite Pahad.
In the evening of the last Friday, February 23, 2007, there came a ring on my mobile from the number of my “Sahilo Mama” (Uncle). He purposed me to join the traveling to the Nangedada (a mountain) which is situated in the Sindhuli District, approx 100 kms far from the Kathmandu Valley. I wondered and feel excitement, immediately said “wow”, I am ready. Actually, Nangedada is the place where my Mom was born, passing her childhood. She had left her lots of experiences, with the mud sharing her lots of feelings. The place which I had visited when I was the age of 4, but no any memories, only some stories which my Mom had told to me that how I was reached there, what I had done there, how I had made all the people tired by doing and showing my childish behavior etc. Although, I had lots of will to visit that place, I couldn’t make my dream possible till the date coz it had been a lots of years that all of the mom’s family members had migrated in Kathmandu. But, still there was some ropanis of lands and the house where my Mom’s childhood had grown up. My Mama told me to wake up at 4 O’clock early in the morning have to get the first bus of 5 am. The time became too much late to me. I couldn’t sleep properly at that night. I had to see my watch 4 times on the night thinking about the 4 am while, usually it always become hard to wake up even at 7 am in the morning to me. Actually, my interest of traveling and my love with the nature is not so new but that whole night passed with the imagination of the “Pahad” (Hilly Region) of my Nangedada. I have several times visited Ilam, Dhankuta, Hile and Basantapur having quite much experiences of there. Although, the first reason behind the traveling is for refreshment, romanticism, feel the beauty of nature and my interest of traveling, I always try to learn many more things from the visit and try to utilize the time completely. Bijayapur, a somehow hillside situated in Dharan is my birth place so I like the place most but Nangedada is the place that I love the most as well as I respect the place and the people very much coz it is the place which had given birth to the person, who had given birth to me. Yehhh that is the main reason behind my excitement. As well as, I had been impassionate to make me disappear on the deep of the beauty of the place. We had the group of 7 persons. My Hajurbuwa (my Mom’s dad), mama, maiju, and the little and lovely child of age three (their daughter), and the pair of the sister of maiju………………………………………….. Read the rest of this entry »
