— यस भिडियोको शब्दहरु आत्मसाथ गरौँ र साथीलाई भनौँ:  नेपाल हाम्रो घर हो, डेरा होईन

कुनै घरमा डेरा गरेर बस्नु र त्यसैको मालिक हुनुमा नितांत फरक छ।
यदि त्यो घरको भित्ताहरु चर्कियो भने डेरा वाला लाई वास्ता हुँदैन, उ त सजिलै अर्को घरमा सर्न सक्छ। तर घर मालिकलाई थाहा छ कि आफ्‌नो घरको हेरचाह आफै गर्नुपर्छ, अरु कोहि आउनेवाला छैन । त्यसैले उ आफैले त्यस घरको भित्ता टाल्दछ।

४ मध्य ३ नेपालीहरु तपाईँ-हामी जस्तै युवा हौँ। समस्या यत्ति हो कि हामीले चाहिँ देशलाई डेरा ठानेका छौँ। हामीले अघिल्लो पुस्तालाई यो देश बरबाद गर्न दिएका छौँ । उनीहरुको झगडामा हामीलाई कठपुतली बनाउन दिएका छौँ। “तिमीहरुले यो देश कहाँ हाँक्न सक्छौ?”
उनीहरुका यस्ता बकुम्फुसे गफ वारम्बार पत्याएर आफैलाई उल्लु बनाउन दिएका छौँ।
उनीहरुलाई यो देश लुट्न दिएका छौँ।

अहिले हामी कोहो रक्सीको चुस्कीमा लुकेका छौँ त कोहो आफ्‍नो धर्म वा समाजको बन्धनमा।
कोहि हामी ईन्टरनेटमा सिमित छौँ त चिया गफमै। यो सोच्दैछौँ कि कुनै दिन यो नेपाल भास्सिएर बिलाँउछ अनि बल्ल नया नेपालमा हामी जान पाँउनेछौँ।

आफु घर भित्र लुक्छौँ र अरु नै कोहि हाम्रो लागि सडकमा जाअोस् भन्ने चाहन्छौँ।
अहिले हामी मतदाता कार्ड होईन, ग्रिन कार्ड खोज्छौँ। हामी आवेशमा छौँ , तर केहि गर्न भने डराँउछौँ। यो देश बचाउने ठेक्का अर्को बुद्ध वा पशुपतिनाथको होईन । न त कुनै दाताकै।
सरकार र अहिलेका राजनितिक शक्तिहरुले त प्रस्ट देखाईसकेका छन् , कि यो काम उनीहरुको पनि होईन। जिम्मेवारी भनेको आफैले निर्वाह गर्ने हो। नेपाली भनेर होइन बनेर देखाउने हो।

अब बिकल्प कुर्दै बस्ने होइन अाफै हुने हो। किनकि यो देश ढले, हामी पनि यसैसाथ ढल्छौँ । अहिले नगरे कहिले ? हामीले नगरे कसले?

Wikipedia – con men

comparing nepali politicians to world’s greatest

It’s much easier to make fun of our political leaders in Nepal, than to praise them. Some few have been good, but majority are usually corrupt, and uneducated, with a highly dubious personality background, and almost all have a permanent fixture of “Jail Time” as their credentials.

Ten Commandments for a con man
A set of instructions known as the “Ten Commandments for Con Men” has been attributed to Lustig: Compare these with our current leaders in Nepal. Fascinating, that most is dead on seriously accurate for all of Nepali netas.

  1. Be a patient listener (it is this, not fast talking, that gets a con man his coups).
  2. Never look bored.
  3. Wait for the other person to reveal any political opinions, then agree with them.
  4. Let the other person reveal religious views, then have the same ones.
  5. Hint at sex talk, but don’t follow it up unless the other person shows a strong interest.
  6. Never discuss illness, unless some special concern is shown.
  7. Never pry into a person’s personal circumstances (they’ll tell you all eventually).
  8. Never boast – just let your importance be quietly obvious.
  9. Never be untidy.
  10. Never get drunk.

So do you know who Victor Lustig was? He was a con artist who undertook scams in various countries and became best known as “The man who sold the Eiffel Tower. Twice.” Seriously, he did duped bunch of people to thinking they were buying the Eiffel Tower. Look for more about him in Wikipedia.

P.S. Next post on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. Its about mHealth.

Friday Read – The Great Leap in China, Stalingrad, Eritrea

Almost all of my good friends are out of Nepal, and right now with self-study, life is all about a cooping in my room, with books. Instead of bar, barbecue or cinema, life is more about books, Internet and sleep. No Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn for the moment. No emails or calendar utility in progress.

Wikipedia has become one important source of entertainment right now. This huge source of information, and my love for history, presents as a great companion in these time of exile. Last night was no different, and when I was done with my books, I went straight to view world maps. Found some irregular border lines, in two places and began my journey for the search of information. Random reading intrigues me, and as much as I presume it to be useless, I just hope, someday everything will come handy.

I began with a small country situated in the horn of Africa – Eritrea. Smaller than Nepal, and bordered with Ethiopia. It’s a developing country, better than Nepal, and has some great good potential, but as with many African nation has fair share of troubles within and outside it, hence a border dispute and fighting with its neighbor has had its toll to the country.

Next on stop was India and its border dispute with China. Apparently there are two border dispute, and as much as I knew about Sino-India war of the late 60s, there was another land mass, near the Kashmir territory that was in dispute. I finally found out more about the seven autonomous regions in China. Tibet plateau is not alone. A long page on these border dispute and the autonomous regions let to a brief history in China, and how Mao came up with a great plan to kill so many innocent humans. Made me sad, and angry. The great leap, the agriculture revolution by the officials which had killed so many innocents, in the name of politics. Reading about these atrocities in the name of a belief made me think the difference between politics and religion. How few smart people ruled the hordes of uneducated like animals. Comparing the democracy with the communism, and the socialist movement with corrupt democracy. A total of 7 million people starved to death during the second agriculture revolution in China – as per the official government figure. An outside figure estimates this to be as much as 48 million, with more people agreeing on terms with the death total of around 30 million. That’s more than the current Nepal’s population of 26.6 million. I was curious to know if something like this had also happen in an entirely opposite scenario, when
I read about the anti-communist genocide by the Indonesian government in the late sixties, in the name of politics. There is a great documentary being released about this, I hope I can see it someday.

Reminiscent and similar to the internet social media rule – 90-9-1 – that for every original source of an idea by one person, there will be nine that will develop on it and improve/degrade it (bake it into their own formula) and distribute to the ninety of us who, with the lack of proper social structure or hence forth the information gap, will follow it. This, I see in both politics and religion – especially in my country (Nepal).

Recently, I met an old friend from Brazil – Sao Palo this past week. We talked about democracy, president Lua, and the evolution of Brazilian culture with its politics. It was a wonderful insight on this huge nation, and I hope Fernando is right when he says, Nepal right now is what Brazil was 20 years ago. I hope, this country turns out great in the near future.

PS.i. This post is not a foul cry to the democracy in Nepal, or the corrupt leaders. I am however, trying to gain knowledge on the evolution of it, and would want to know the path it will follow in future.
