नेपाली मिडियाको आपत्तिप्रति ‘भारतीय दूतावास आश्चर्यचकित’

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 30, 2010

नयाँ पत्रिका

काठमाडौं, १३ भदौ कूटनीतिक मर्यादा नाघेर नेपाली मिडियामाथि आक्षेप लगाउने भारतीय दूतावासले तीन दिनमा दोस्रो विज्ञप्ति निकालेको छ । पूरक विज्ञप्तिमा दूतावासले सफाइ दिन खोजे पनि गोलमटोल रूपमा नेपाली मिडियामाथिको आक्षेप फिर्ता लिएको छैन ।

भारतीय संयुक्त लगानीका कम्पनीका कम गुणस्तरका उत्पादनबारे समाचार प्रकाशन तथा प्रसारण गर्ने सञ्चारमाध्यमले विज्ञापन नपाएको प्रतिशोधमा समाचार छापेको दाबी गर्दै भारतीय दूतावासले शुक्रबार विज्ञप्ति जारी गरेको थियो । दूतावासजस्तो कूटनीतिक नियोगले आफ्नो हैसियतबाट तल झरेर विनाप्रमाण आक्षेप लगाएपछि सार्वभौम नेपालका स्वतन्त्र मिडिया संगठनहरूले कडा आपत्ति जनाएका थिए । Read the rest of this entry »

What is the soul, and what is it’s purpose?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 30, 2010

[I am posting this from Awakening Code‘s note from Facebook for your information.]

The soul is a living energetic invisible energy which existed before we were born into the physical realm, and will remain in existence after we depart from this life. It is part of us and holds the records of what we were, what we are and what we are supposed to be doing here. It contains an inherent knowledge of everything we have experienced. It is immortal.

Whether you believe in previous incarnations or not, the most important thing to know is that without this entity called the soul, we cannot exist physically or otherwise. Know one thing though, this is our connection to all there was, is and ever will be. This is how we acknowledge that a connection to God exists, whether you believe in God or not. It matters not what your belief system in God is, but to know that there exists a Power, universal in nature and which is far more powerful than we could ever be. And this Power is connected to our souls. Our souls know when we were to be born and our souls know when we will depart from this world into the next.

Our souls require that we be schooled in this existence, learning from our previous experiences, in this and other Read the rest of this entry »

Saakar Byahut

A GIFTED teenager who achieved the highest A level results at Ruthin School will not be able to take up a place to study at Cambridge University.

Saakar Byahut picked up five A* exam results last Thursday, just two years after being granted a full scholarship to leave his home country of Nepal and join Ruthin school.

The bright 18-year-old achieved his A star grades in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Further Maths, and Further Maths Additional.

Despite his intelligence Saakar said he never had any intention of applying to Cambridge or any other UK university because he knew he couldn’t afford it. Read the rest of this entry »

Gurkha Regiment in Britain May be Axed

those axed unless the Ministry of Defence’s demands for more money to fund the replacement of Trident nuclear missile submarines are answered. Last night, hopes for extra funding were fading as Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander rejected demands for extra money from Tory Defence Secretary Liam Fox and insisted the 20 billion pounds cost of replacing Trident had to be met fully by the MoD, The Observer reported today. Quoting an expert, the report said the increasing costs of running the Gurkha’s following actress Joanna Lumley’s high-profile campaign last year to improve their rights, added to the sense that the “writing is on the wall” for the Brigade of Gurkhas, which has 3,640 members. Fox has been pushing hard for the Treasury to increase the MoD’s budget in some of the toughest negotiations of the spending review aimed at slashing Britain’s 155 billion pounds deficit. The report said despite their fame and public following, the Gurkhas had long been a candidate for cuts. “Ever since January 1, 1948, when the Brigade of Gurkhas joined the British army, their future has been up for discussion. They have been here before,” the report quoted a defence insider. Read the rest of this entry »

Nepali beauty to hit Hollywood

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 30, 2010

MYREPUBLICA BY K BEDESHWAR

KATHMANDU, Aug 29: If you really want to achieve something, sky is certainly not the limit and nothing is impossible to those who wholeheartedly desire to achieve something in their lives.

One such example is Suesha Rana. Unfamiliar to many in Kathmandu, Suesha, 23, is already somebody promising for the people in Perth, Western Australia. While it’s a dream for many aspiring Nepali actors to get to learn acting abroad, this young pretty maiden of Nepal has already been a part of many celebrated Australian shows and she is now all set to move to Hollywood.

A true Libran in every aspect, Suesha is born to the late lyricist Sahadev Rana (the writer of the popular Nepali song “San Naniko Galaima”, sung by Phatteman Rajbhandari).

Suesha, who believes that performing arts was always in her gene pool, was blessed by the support from her parents since her childhood. Unlike many parents in the capital city of Kathmandu who dream of their children scoring 80 and above in Mathematics and Science, Suesha’s parents cared least about her academic scores. They gave their daughter enough space to explore and earn skill in whatever she was comfortable with. This gave Suesha further encouragement to pursue her career in performing arts.

Ex-crown princess presides over ‘Mrs Nepal’ contest

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 30, 2010

GULF TIMES, DOHA QATAR

As Nepal still hesitates to bid a final adieu to the crown, the women in the deposed royal family have been the first to adapt to their new role as civilians.

Former crown princess Himani, who retained her popularity even during the height of the anti-monarchy movement in 2006 that saw the abolition of the crown, was back in the news yesterday after she presided over a contest during a traditional festival celebrated by married women.

The 33-year-old, looking beautiful in a red sari, was the chief guest at the Teej Pari contest organised by the Lazimpat Tourism Development Board in the capital on Saturday to promote Nepal’s “oldest tourism area”.

“Lazimpat is the place where tourism first started in Nepal,” said Govinda Singh Dungol, president of the board. “It boasted of the first two hotels in Nepal – the Snow View Hotel and the Royal Hotel.”

Though the first is now a commercial building and the second has metamorphosed into the office of the Election Commission, the nascent republic however still continues to celebrate Teej, the only festival for married women. Read the rest of this entry »

UCPN (Maoist) says it is not in favour of any kind of monarchy

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 30, 2010

Unified CPN (Maoist) has clarified on Sunday it is not in favour of any kind of monarchy dismissing media reports and allegations from some leaders of other political parties including caretaker Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal that the party was in favour of ceremonial or cultural monarchy.

The on going central committee meeting of the party clarified its position on monarchy after PM Nepal accused the party of supporting monarchy and demanded the party to clear up its position on this. UCPN (Maoist) has refuted Nepal’s accusations.

Reports about Maoists’ position on monarchy had appeared in media after chairman of Rastriya Prajantantra Party – Nepal, Kamal Thapa, said at a public function that Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal had expressed his party’s support for a ceremonial monarch during a recent meeting with him.

Indian embassy has ridiculed diplomatic norms and press freedom: Press Council

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 30, 2010

Press Council of Nepal has on Sunday said that the Indian embassy has infringed upon diplomatic norms, and has mocked the notion of international press freedom.

The embassy, in its statement, has accused Nepal media bodies of disseminating negative reports against Indian Joint Ventures (JVs) in Nepal in their “attempts to extract advertising revenue from such JVs”.

In an interaction program held in the capital on Sunday, president of Press Council Nepal Narayan Prasad Sharma said, “Nepali media is free to broadcast or publish any news in a free and fair manner. However, the embassy has tried to gaggle the press freedom in a diplomatically demeaning manner by airing such an accusation against media fraternities.”

Bishnu Hari Dhakal of Broadcasting Association of Nepal also claimed that the Indian embassy is indulged in undermining the professional ethics of Nepali media. nepalnews.com
