Program: A Global Volunteer Program to fight Malnutrition Among the Earth Quake Victim Children in Nepal
Introduction: A destructive earthquake of 7.9 magnitude hit Nepal, ruining lives and destroying infrastructures on Saturday 25 April 2015. This killed over 8000 people and injured over 19,000. This huge earth quake was again followed by almost 300 aftershocks, which toppled homes forcing millions of people to take shelter into open spaces in temporary camps. The affected people of that devastated area were still in the panic, another powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 7.1 struck on May 12, 2015 just after two weeks. The situation darned gigantically and has become unmanageable.
Millions of people have been struggling simply to protect themselves from the sun and rain in the open spaces, surviving on stale, rotten and unhealthy food. As people are facing the aftermath of this disaster, the water supplies are running low and food is scarce. The risk of waterborne diseases is growing rapidly and thousands of children with severe malnutrition are in need of proper food and treatment. With the monsoons only a few weeks away, children face greater risk of disease and infection. Read the rest of this entry »
काठमाडौं । नेपालमा महाभूकम्प गएको पाँच दिनपछि ३० अप्रिल (बैशाख १८ गते) मा बेलायती पत्रिका गार्डियनले नेपालको उत्तरी छिमेकी चीनका बारेमा एउटा समाचार लेख्यो- ५७ तले गगनचुम्बी भवन १९ दिनमा निर्माण। त्यसको १९ दिनअघि नै बेलायती ट्याब्लोइड पत्रिका डेलीमेलले खबरको हेडलाइन राखेको थियो- १९ दिनमा गगनचुम्बी भवन कसरी बनाउने?
समाचारमा निर्माणकर्ताले दाबी गरेका छन्- १९ ठूला हल, ८०० अपार्टमेन्ट र चार हजार मानिसले काम गर्ने अफिससहितको यो ‘मिनी स्काइ सिटी’ ले जस्तोसुकै भूकम्पलाई सजिलै सहन सक्छ।
अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय मिडियामा ‘बिकाउ’ खबर बनेको ५७ तले भवन निर्माण गर्ने कम्पनी अहिले विश्वकै अग्लो गगनचुम्बी भवन बनाउन जुटेको छ। नयाँ रेकर्ड बनाउने यो महत्वकांक्षी योजना पूरा गर्न उक्त निर्माण कम्पनीलाई तीन महिना लाग्नेछ। स्वभाविक रुपमा प्रश्न उठ्छ- तीन महिनामा २२० तले भवन?
यति छोटो समयमा कसरी सम्भव छ त संसारकै अग्लो गगनचुम्बी भवन निर्माण गर्न? प्रश्नको उत्तर सजिलो छ- निर्माणमा प्रयोग हुने प्रविधि। के हो त यो प्रविधि? समाचारमा उत्तर छ- प्रिफेब।

KATHMANDU — By his third day waiting for a helicopter, Namgyal Sherpa got restless. He had left Kathmandu last week with seven friends and 3,000 kilos of food — rice, lentils, instant noodles, salt, and oil — and hoped to deliver it to the village of Laprak, which is near the epicenter of the earthquake that killed more than 8,100 people.
“There wasn’t enough relief aid going to the village,” Namgyal, 31, told BuzzFeed News. “So we wanted to send supplies to Laprak not only because it was home to many of our boys, but also because it wasn’t getting attention like other places.”
Nepal has been hit by another strong earthquake, sending people in the capital, Kathmandu, rushing out on to the streets just weeks after a devastating quake killed more than 8,000 people and destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes.
The US Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.3 and struck 42 miles (68km) west of the town of Namche Bazaar, close to Mount Everest. Shockwaves were felt as far away as the Indian capital, Delhi, and Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.
At least four people were killed in the town of Chautara in Sindhupalchowk district, north of Kathmandu, after several buildings collapsed, a spokesman for the International Organisation for Migration said. Sindhupalchowk suffered the heaviest death toll in last month’s quake. Read the rest of this entry »
हामीले अहिले पनि प्रत्येक वर्ष खर्च नहुने र कटाउन सक्ने बजेटबाट झण्डै १५० अर्ब रुपैयाँ निकाल्न सक्छौं। आन्तरिक ऋण उठाएर दुई/अढाई सय अर्ब रुपैयाँ पुर्याउन सक्छौं। ऋणपत्र जारी गरेर विशेष ढंगले अभियान चलाउने हो भने ५/६ सय अर्ब रुपैयाँ हामी आफैं जुटाउन सक्छौं। सस्तो दरमा बाह्य ऋण लिएर भए पनि हामीले कमसेकम एक हजार अर्ब अथवा १० खर्ब बराबरको कोष खडा गर्न सक्ने हो भने नमूनायोग्य नयाँ नेपाल बन्न सक्छ। त्यसको म पूरै सम्भावना देख्छु।
काठमाडौं : पूर्वप्रधानमन्त्री एवं एकीकृत नेकपा माओवादीका वरिष्ठ नेता डा. बाबुराम भट्टराईले महाभूकम्पले सिर्जना गरेको विनासलाई नवनिर्माणको अवसरका रुपमा उपयोग गर्नुपर्ने बताएका छन् । व्यवस्थापिका संसदलाई सम्बोधन गर्दै डा. भट्टराईले विनाशबाट माथि उठेर नयाँ ढंगले राष्ट्र निर्माण गरेका उदाहरण दिँदै राष्ट्र निर्माणका लागि नयाँ संयन्त्रहरुको निर्माण गर्नुपर्ने बताएका छन्।
‘अब केही दशकको राजनीति परम्परागत ढंगले हिँडेर अगाडि बढ्न सक्दैन’, भट्टराईले भने, ‘राजनीतिमा पनि अब एक ढंगको क्रमभंगता नभइकन, राजनीतिक ‘डिस्कोर्स’लाई नयाँ ढंगले नउठाइकन; जनतालाई ‘डेलिभरी’ गर्न सक्ने, तत्काल समस्या समाधान गर्न सक्ने, जुन पैदा भएको नयाँ अन्तरविरोध छ त्यसको हल गर्न सक्ने नीति, कार्यक्रम र नेतृत्व नभइकन अबको राजनीति अगाडि बढ्न सक्दैन।’
आफ्ना विचार, पार्टी, समूहभन्दा माथि उठेर राजनीतिलाई नयाँ दिशा दिने प्रयत्न र संकल्प गर्न भट्टराईले आग्रह गरे। के छ त नवनिर्माणका लागि भट्टराईको मोडल? पूर्वप्रधानमन्त्री तथा एमाओवादी वरिष्ठ नेता डा. बाबुराम भट्टराईले व्यवस्थापिका संसद्को बैठकलाई गरेको सम्बोधनको पूर्णपाठ:
सम्माननीय सभामुख महोदय,

Settlements in local currencies between Russia and China now account for 7 percent of the bilateral trade, but the potential for growth is tremendous, experts tell RT. Yuan-ruble trade in Russia has grown 700 percent in a year.
Growing cooperation between Russia and China has become one of the hottest topics in the global economy. It is signaling the emergence of a strong alliance of one the world’s richest and strongest economies, which is expected to reshape the existing western-dominated economic model.
While energy deals between the resource – rich Russia and resource – hungry China look natural, bringing the countries’ finances closer looks like a real challenge to the US dollar system, experts agree, although the transition won’t be quick. Read the rest of this entry »
U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden with the full cooperation of Pakistani intelligence agencies, who had kept the 9/11 mastermind prisoner inside his infamous Abbottabad compound for years before the fatal raid, a new bombshell report claims.
The report, a lengthy article by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, widely contradicts multiple elements of the original account of the May 2011 raid by U.S. forces provided by the Obama administration and other federal government figures.
“The White House still maintains that the mission was an all-American affair, and that the senior generals of Pakistan’s army and Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) were not told of the raid in advance. This is false, as are many other elements of the Obama administration’s account,” Hersh wrote in the 10,000-word expose published online Sunday on the London Review of Books website.
“The most blatant lie was that Pakistan’s two most senior military leaders — General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, chief of the army staff, and General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, director general of the ISI — were never informed of the US mission. This remains the White House position despite an array of reports that have raised questions,” Hersh wrote, adding that he had unearthed the following new pieces of information:
This time the whole world thoughts are with the people of Nepal in the aftermath of the brawny earthquake ((7.9-8.0 Richter Scale Magnitudes) that has struck most of the part of Nepal at 11.56 AM (07:56 AM GMT) on 25th April, 2015. After that there are series of small and big earthquakes.
Thousands of lives have been lost. There has also been significant damage to Nepal’s most of irreplaceable amazing cultural heritage and some of bridges are collapsed: Roads, electricity, water supply and telephone lines are disrupted. The reports of the devastation are terrible and still coming in and the numbers of people killed, injured and affected by this earthquake continue to rise. Read the rest of this entry »
KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — A powerful, 7.9-magnitude earthquake shook Nepal’s capital and the densely populated Kathmandu Valley before noon Saturday, collapsing houses, leveling centuries-old temples and cutting open roads in the worst tremor in the Himalayan nation in over 80 years.
Dozens of people with injuries were being brought to the main hospital in central Kathmandu. There was no immediate estimate on fatalities. China’s state broadcaster said one Chinese tourist was killed in Nepal at the Nepal-China border. Read the rest of this entry »
Princess Diana died almost 18 years ago, but her final wishes were never known publicly… until now.
A new British website called Probate Search has revealed not only Diana’s will, but 41 million other wills dating back to 1858. Diana’s will, naturally, is among the most interesting.
According to the “Today” show, Diana left close to $30 million to her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. She also instructed that her mother, Frances Shand Kydd, should be consulted about the boys’ education in the event of her death.
“She wanted to make sure [her children] were showered with love,” Robert Jobson, author of “The New Royal Family,” told “Today.” “That’s something she really agonized over when she split from Prince Charles. I think this will reflects that.”
[ This is a ‘secret draft proposal’ forwarded by the Government of India to then His Majesty’s Government of Nepal for security, water resource management and industry and commerce also. The slain King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev is reported to have rejected this proposal. For that matter, Nepalese people should heartily thank the slain king. The proposal, though soft in language, is extremely cruel and dangerous in substance and meaning. Had the King told his men to sign on the proposal, Nepal’s military would have been paralyzed, sovereignty and independence would have been compromised, ownership of water resource would have been lost and big Indian business houses would have swallowed up Nepalese business entrepreneurs etc. There are these days loud talks in Kathmandu or elsewhere that Nepal in Bhutan’s shoes is morphing into a present day Sikkim. This, therefore, is posted for discussion.]
