Princess Diana left how much to Prince William and Prince Harry?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on April 22, 2015

DianaPrincess 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.”

KING BIRENDRA HAD REJECTED INDIAN PROPOSAL FOR SECURITY, WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT, INDUSTRY AND COMMERCE

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on April 20, 2015

[ 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.]

मोदी भनाइ केही हो, न कि सबैथोक

एक्काईसौं शताब्दीको आजको इन्टरनेटको जमानामा नियतबस गलत जानकारी प्रबाह गर्नुले अन्तराष्ट्रिय दृष्टिकोण नकारात्मक बन्ने भएकाले सत्यका पर्यायबाची बुद्धको जन्मस्थल विषयमा साँचो कुरा गरेर बुद्धप्रति साँचो अर्थमा आदर गर्नु नै उपयुक्त देखिन्छ । नेपालले त आखिर ढिलो चाँडो समस्या समाधान गर्ने नै भएकोले शक्तिसम्पन्न राष्ट्रको सूचिमा पर्न अग्रसर भारतले यस किसिमका समस्याका कारण विश्व रंगमन्चमा आफ्नो छबि धमिलिन नदिन समयमा नै अग्रसरता दर्शाउनु नेपालभन्दा भारतकै लागि बढी हितकर हुने देखिन्छ । एउटा शक्तिशाली देशको प्रधानमन्त्री भएको नाताले बारंबार बिरोधाभासपूर्ण भनाइ थोपरिदिनुको सट्टा महानबाणी बोलिदिनुस सम्माननीय मोदीज्यू, किनकि हामी चाहन्छौं हाम्रो छिमेकी देशको प्रधानमन्त्री संसारभरकै लागि सम्मानित बनोस ।   

नेपाल भ्रमणमा रहेका भारतका प्रधानमन्त्री नरेन्द्र मोदीद्धारा करीब आठ महिना अघि नेपालको संविधानसभामा सम्बोधन गर्ने क्रममाविश्वलाई चकित गर्ने बुद्ध जन्मेको देशभनी नेपालको लुम्बिनीलाई बुद्धको जन्मथलोको रुपमा स्वीकारिएको सार्वजनिक सम्बोधनले भारतीय संचार माध्यम प्रतिष्ठित मानिने भारतीयहरुद्धारा बारंबार बुद्ध जन्मस्थल विषयमा सिर्जना गरिने अनावश्यक बिबाद अब टुंगिने हो कि भन्ने संकेतका कारण यस्ले लाखौं नेपालीको मन जित्ने काम मात्रै गरेन अपितु बिशेष गरी लुम्बिनीकपिलबस्तु दिवस अभियानको २००९ मा भएको सूत्रपातपस्चात  सामाजिक सन्जाल बिशेष गरी फेसबुकमा बुद्ध नेपालमा जन्मनु भएको सन्देशको बाढीका कारण मौनतापूर्बक यो बिषयमा चलेको जुहारीलाई नियालिरहेका थुप्रै अन्तराष्ट्रिय संचार माध्यमले समेत मोदीको उक्त भनाइलाई उच्च प्राथमिकता दिएर समाचार संप्रेषण गरेको देखिन्छ । बुद्ध जन्मस्थल बिषयमा सत्य छायाँमा पारिने र असत्य सही जस्तो देखिने गरी अनाबस्यक किसिमबाट सिर्जना भएको बिस्वब्यापी दिग्भ्रम मोदी भनाइले नै टुङ्याउने हो कि भन्ने जस्तो मानसिकता धेरै नेपालीहरुमा मात्रै नभएर हाम्रा देश हाँक्ने नेताहरुमा समेत पाइयो कुराकानीको सिलसिलामा, जुन सही होइन ।

जसरी योगगुरु रामदेबले आफ्नो पुस्तकमा वुद्ध भारतमा जन्मेको कुरा उल्लेख गरे तापनि नेपाल आएर बुद्ध नेपालमा जन्मेको कुरा गरे त्यसरी नै केही समय अघि मात्रैजुन बेला बिहारलाई वुद्धको आवश्यकता परेको थियो बिहारले बुद्ध दियोभनेका कारण बिबाद आलोचनाका पात्र बनेका मोदी भारतको प्रधानमन्त्रीको हैसियतमा नेपाल आउँदा नेपाली संविधानसभामा सम्बोधन गर्ने क्रममा बुद्ध नेपालमा जन्मेको भन्दै नेपाललाई बुद्धको देशको रुपमा चिनाउन धेरै पटक दोहोर्याए Read the rest of this entry »
