गोरखाली छोरीको यस्तो ‘पुरुषार्थ’

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 24, 2015

Gorkhaliशिवप्रसाद उप्रेती: गोरखाको छेकम्पार-५, बुर्जी गाउँकी फुन्जो लामालाई समाजमा छोरीको पुरुषार्थ देखाउने ठूलो रहर छ। त्यसैले उनी दुर्घटनामा परेकालाई हेलिकोप्टरमा झुन्डिएर उद्धार गर्ने काम सिक्न थालेकी छन्। ‘हेलिकोप्टरमा झुन्डिएर आठ हजार मिटरभन्दा अग्लो हिमालको आकाशमुनि पुग्दा पनि मनमा कत्ति डर लाग्दैन। बरु अवसर पाए छोरीले पनि साहसी काम गर्न सक्छन् भन्ने सोचिरहेकी हुन्छु’, फुन्जो भन्छिन्।

The Youngest Billionaires On The Forbes 400: 11 Under 40

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 16, 2015

By Natalie Robehmed:

NatalieEach year, Forbes crunches the net worth of every American billionaire to see who will make the exclusive Forbes 400 list. But 11 members of this club are luckier than the rest: they are in good health, have full heads of hair and many, many years to spend their fortunes.

This year there are 11 American billionaires under the age of 40 on the list.  The youngest member of the Forbes 400 is 30-year-old Facebook cofounder Dustin Moskovitz, who has been the most junior person on the Forbes 400 since making his debut in 2010. He lost bragging rights as country’s youngest billionaire this summer when Snapchat raised money valuing the photo sharing app at $10 billion. Now Evan Spiegel, 24, holds that title but with a net worth of $1.5 billion, he just misses the cut for the Forbes 400.

DustinMoskovitz is just eight days younger than his former Harvard roommate, Mark Zuckerberg, who is the second-most-junior member of the list. The Facebook CEO is worth an estimated $34 billion, up from $19 billion last year, making him the year’s biggest dollar gainer. At just 30 years old, he is the 11th richest person in America – and the wealthiest under 40. Read the rest of this entry »

The dollar’s 70-year dominance is coming to an end

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 15, 2015

Within a decade, greenback’s could be replaced as the world’s reserve currency

In early July 1944, delegates from 44 countries gathered at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. A three-week summit took place, at which a new system was agreed to regulate the international monetary and financial order after the Second World War.

The US was already the world’s commercial powerhouse, having eclipsed the British Empire several decades earlier. America was also on course to be among the victors of “Europe’s conflict”, even though its economy was largely unscathed by war. As such, Bretton Woods was US-dominated and produced a settlement largely on US terms.

Seventy years ago this week, that fateful summit ended. Its close marked the moment the dollar’s unquestionable supremacy was secured. Since then, global commerce has been conducted largely in dollars and leading economies have held the greenback as their primary reserve currency.

The same system remains intact today, with the lion’s share of commercial settlements worldwide still clearing the US banking system – even if the parties involved have nothing to do with the States.

गोरखामा विश्वविद्यालय स्थापना गर्ने लक्ष्य : आलोकश्री ( सङ्गीतकार )

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 12, 2015

Alok_shreeAlok-Shreeघरमा पानी चुहिंदा ओभानो ठाउँ खोज्दै गुन्द्रीमा रात काटेको अनुभव संगालेका सूर्यकुमार खाती स्वीट्जरल्यान्डस्थित पाँचतारे होटलमा पनि सुतेका छन् । फरक यति हो, स्वीटजरल्यान्डको पाँचतारे होटलमा सुत्दा उनको परिचय संगीतकार आलोकश्रीको थियो ।

२०६३ मा जेबी संयोगीको शब्द तथा आलोकश्रीको संगीतमा भारतीय गजल सम्राट् जगजीत सिंहको स्वरको गजल-संग्रह ‘संयोग’ बजारमा आयो । ‘संयोग’पछि उनकै संगीतमा २०६३ मा ‘राष्ट्रियता’ २०६५ मा एसपी कोइरालाको एकल शब्दमा ‘उपमा’ र २०६६ मा विकास राणा र सुष्मा राणाको स्वरको ‘लुकेर लाएको माया’, २०६६ मै रूपक डोटेलको एकल स्वरमा ‘उमङ्ग’ गीतिसंग्रह श्रोतामाझ आए । ‘२०४६ सालदेखि प्रारम्भ भएको मेरो सांगीतिक यात्रा अहिलेसम्म सुखद छ,’ आलोकश्री भन्छन्- ‘भर्खरै बजारमा आएका गीतिसंग्रहहरू ‘लुकेर लाएको माया’ र ‘उमङ्ग’ ले पनि सफलता पाउनुले मेरा सबै मेहनतको श्रोताले कदर गरेको अनुभव गरेको छु ।’

मानिस सगरमाथा चढ्छ, विश्व देख्छ, विश्वकै अग्लो स्थानमा पुगेको गर्व अनुभूत गर्छ, अनि लुरुलुरु तल र्झछ,’ शिखरमा एक्लै पुगे पनि बस्ने मन गरे पनि आखिरमा बेसक्याम्प झर्नैपर्छ,’

घरमा पानी चुहिंदा ओभानो ठाउँ खोज्दै गुन्द्रीमा रात काटेको अनुभव संगालेका सूर्यकुमार खाती स्वीट्जरल्यान्डस्थित पाँचतारे होटलमा पनि सुतेका छन् । फरक यति हो, स्वीटजरल्यान्डको पाँचतारे होटलमा सुत्दा उनको परिचय संगीतकार आलोकश्रीको थियो ।

आलोकश्री यस्ता पात्र हुन्, जसले मेहनत र आत्मविश्वासकै कारण आफ्नो पहिचानलाई करोडौं नेपालीका माझ परिचित गराएका छन् । गोरखाको आँपपिपलमा पहिलो पटक आँखा उघारेका आलोकश्री जम्बो परिवारका सदस्य थिए ।

‘बुबाहरू चार दाजुभाइ तथा चार दिदीबहिनी हुनुहुन्थ्यो’ आलोकश्री भन्छन्- ‘त्यसमा पनि हाम्रा बा-आमाका पाँच सन्तान थपिएपछि परिवारको साइज झन्डै दुई दर्जन पुगेको थियो ।’ ‘आम्दानी भए पनि खर्च धेरै हुने भएकाले घर चलाउन मुस्किल हुन्थ्यो,’ उनी सम्झन्छन्- ‘कक्षा ८ मा पुगेपछि म पनि मेलापातमा व्यस्त हुन थालिसकेको थिएँ ।’ यसरी बिहान- बिहान गरेको कामबाट आउने २-३ रुपैयाँ जम्मा गरेर उनी महिनामा ५० रुपैयाँ पुर्‍याउ**थे, जुन विद्यालय शुल्क तथा कापी किताबमा खर्च हुन्थ्यो । Read the rest of this entry »

आठ वर्षमै ब्ल्याक बेल्ट (फोटोफिचर/भिडियो)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 10, 2015

Bishank Rana could not be the first as Mark Garry already became the youngest person to achieve Karate Black belt at only 8 years old.
रोशन राउत : काठमाडौं : उनको नाम विशांक राना मगर। उनी भर्खर नौ वर्षका भए। उमेरले सानै भए पनि खेल क्षेत्रमा उनले हासिल गरेको उपलब्धि भने अपत्यारिलो छ। काठमाडौंको भानुभक्त मेमोरियल स्कुलमा कक्षा चारमा अध्ययनरत विशांकले कराँतेमा ब्ल्याक बेल्ट (कालो पेटी) पाइसकेका छन्।
कुनै पनि खेलाडीले कराँते सिक्न सुरु गरेदेखि ब्ल्याक बेल्टसम्म पुग्न सातवटा चरण पार गर्नुपर्छ। विशांकले पनि ह्वाइट, यलो, अरेन्ज, ब्लु, ग्रिन, पर्पल र ब्राउन बेल्टको चरण पार गरेर आठ वर्षकै उमेरमा ब्ल्याक बेल्ट पाएका हुन्।
कराँतेका उदीयमान खेलाडी भए पनि पछिल्लो समयमा आएर फुटबल खेलले पनि विशांकलाई मोहित पारेको छ रे। फुटबल खेलले उनको मन तान्नुको पछाडि कारण भने रहेछन्, -राष्ट्रिय फुटबल टोलीका चर्चित खेलाडी अनिल गुरुङ। 
उनले सन् २०१३ को सेप्टेम्बर ४ तारिखमा ब्ल्याक बेल्टको प्रमाणपत्र पाएका थिए। पक्कै पनि, यो असामान्य उपलब्धि हासिल गर्न उनले गर्नुपरेको परिश्रम सामान्य थिएन।

How a Nepali village girl became an ultramarathon champion via rebel army

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 9, 2015

Mark Sharp

Rai

Running up Lantau Peak from sea level in less than 50 minutes is a tall order, but to the diminutive Mira Rai, it’s all relative. “Hong Kong is very modern, but the mountains are not very high,” says the 23-year-old Nepali, who was in the city last month to compete in the Vertical Kilometre race to the summit.

Rai claimed victory in the women’s category in a time of 48 minutes, 32 seconds. Two days later, she defended her MSIG Lantau 50 ultramarathon title, won two months earlier. This time she was defeated only by the world champion in the class, Stevie Kremer.

Rai’s sporting achievements have been sudden and impressive. She took part in her first ultramarathon in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, just last March, after being encouraged by a friend. She finished first and went on to win a second race in April. In September, she left Nepal for the first time to compete in two races in Italy. Against a global line-up of top long-distance runners, she was crowned champion in both events. Rai is now on track to become her country’s first professional female elite athlete in the fast-growing sport.

It’s been a meteoric rise for Rai, but equally remarkable is the path she took to get where she is today. It was a trajectory that began when she ran off to become a child soldier in Nepal’s Maoist rebel army.

Rai wields an assault rifle as a 15-year-old Maoist rebel in Nepal.

The second of five siblings from a poor village near the town of Bhojpur, eastern Nepal, Rai pined to free herself from the yoke of subsistence farming. “In the rainy season we could grow crops, but if the weather was not good it was hard to grow anything. It was a very difficult life,” she says through a translator.

So at the age of 14, when she heard of a possibility to change her circumstances, Rai packed her bag and told her parents she was going camping for a few weeks. Instead, she spent the next two years living in a bamboo fortress with up to 600 rebel recruits.

“I wasn’t aware of the politics when I joined. At school, the student union used to organise activities like camping and sports, which I was interested in joining. I didn’t know it was really a Maoist campaign,” she says. “My family situation was not good and I was just looking for an opportunity to do something else with my life.”

एक पीडित युवतीकाे मार्मिक पत्र: ‘मेरो जीवन निमोठ्नेहरू निर्दोष हुन् ?’

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 17, 2014

Puja-Boharaमाननीय कानुनमन्त्रीज्यू, म अहिले अभिभावकविहीन भएकी छु । अपराधीहरू निर्दोष भनी छुटेकाले सबैले मलाई नै दोषी ठान्छन्, त्यसैले म आफ्नो गाउँ फर्किन सक्तिनँ । तसर्थ मैले सिंगो नेपाललाई आफ्नो घर मानेकी छु भने नेपाल सरकारलाई अभिभावक ठानेकी छु । त्यही अभिभावकहरूमध्ये सम्बन्धित क्षेत्रका मन्त्री हुनुभएकाले तपाईंलाई यो पत्र कोरेकी हुँ । तपाईंका दुई छोरीहरू हुनुहुन्छ भन्ने थाहा पाएकी छु । कृपया मलाई पनि आफ्नै छोरीझैं ठानी न्याय दिलाइदिनु हुन अनुरोध गर्दछु ।

मेरो किटानी जाहेरीले पक्राउ परी दोषी सावित भई १३ वर्षका लागि जेल चलान भएका ती बलात्कारीहरू छुट्नु भनेको के उनीहरू निर्दोष अनि मचाहिँ दोषी हुँ त ? यदि म दोषी हुँ भने मलाई तुरुन्तै कारबाही गरियोस्, हैन भने ती बलात्कारीहरूलाई पुनः पक्राउ गरी सजाय सुनाइयोस् ।

काठमाडौ, पुस १ – माननीय कानुनमन्त्री,

नरहरि आचार्यज्यू,

नमस्कार ।

म एउटा गरिब परिवारकी १७ वर्षीया छोरी हुँ । मैले तपाईंको नाममा पत्र लेख्न हुन्थ्यो वा हुन्नथ्यो थाहा छैन । तर पनि मनैदेखि आफ्नो अभिभावक ठानी यो पत्र कोर्ने दुस्साहस गरेकी छु । कृपया केही गल्ती भए सुरुमै क्षमा चाहन्छु ।

मेरो नाम पूजा बोहरा हो । घर सुदूरपश्चिम बैतडी जिल्लाको दुर्गम कैलापाल गाविसमा पर्छ । मेरो बुबाको यथेष्ट जग्गाजमिन छैन । त्यसैले उहाँले धनीको घरमा हली बसेर सात सन्तानको लालनपालन गर्नुभएको हो । मेरो बुबा गरिब र अशिक्षित भए पनि सायद शिक्षाको महत्त्व बुझेकैले होला, मलाई गाउँकै कैलाश प्राविमा भर्ना गरिदिनुभयो । मेरो भाग्य नै भन्नुपर्‍यो, जुन दिन विद्यालय टेक्ने अवसर पाएँ, कुनै परीक्षामा दोस्रो हुनु परेन ।

‘छोरी होस् त फलानोजस्ती’ भन्ने सुन्दा मेरा गरिब आमाबुबा गर्वका साथ सन्तुष्टिको सास फेर्नु हुन्थ्यो । अरूभन्दा तेज पढाइ भएका कारण मलाई विद्यालयले छात्रवृत्तिको सुविधा दिएको थियो । घरैनजिकको त्यो विद्यालयमा ५ कक्षासम्म मात्रै पढाइ हुन्थ्यो । त्यसपछि पढ्न अर्को विद्यालय जानुपर्ने भयो, जुन मेरो घरबाट डेढ घन्टाको उकालो-ओरालो जंगलैजंगलको बाटोमा थियो । एक त म सानी ९ वर्षकी थिएँ, अर्कोतर्फ जंगलको बाटो एक्लै जानुपर्ने भएकाले

मेरो आमाबुबाले ‘अब विद्यालय जानु पर्दैन, बरु विवाह गरिदिन्छौं’ भन्नुभयो । मेरो गाउँमा महिनावारी नभएकी छोरीलाई बेहुली बनाएर अन्मायो भने ठूलो धर्म लाग्छ भन्ने विश्वास छ । आमाबुबाको कुरा थाहा पाएर मेरा स्कुलका गुरुहरू घरमै आई सम्झाईबुझाई गरिदिनुभयो र मैले अर्को विद्यालय गएर पढ्ने अवसर पाएँ । Read the rest of this entry »

Time Person of the Year: THE EBOLA FIGHTERS

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 11, 2014

By Nancy Gibbs

time-ebola-cover-person-of-the-year-141222Not the glittering weapon fights the fight, says the proverb, but rather the hero’s heart.

Maybe this is true in any battle; it is surely true of a war that is waged with bleach and a prayer.

For decades, Ebola haunted rural African villages like some mythic monster that every few years rose to demand a human sacrifice and then returned to its cave. It reached the West only in nightmare form, a Hollywood horror that makes eyes bleed and organs dissolve and doctors despair because they have no cure.

But 2014 is the year an outbreak turned into an epidemic, powered by the very progress that has paved roads and raised cities and lifted millions out of poverty. This time it reached crowded slums in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone; it traveled to Nigeria and Mali, to Spain, Germany and the U.S. It struck doctors and nurses in unprecedented numbers, wiping out a public-health infrastructure that was weak in the first place. One August day in Liberia, six pregnant women lost their babies when hospitals couldn’t admit them for complications. Anyone willing to treat Ebola victims ran the risk of becoming one.

Saugat Bista: Nepali boy seeks to be youngest film director (Video)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 9, 2014

love-you-baba

Film sets can be quite unnerving for children, but Saugat Bista is very comfortable in such settings. In fact he is in control of what happens in the studio or outdoors.

Saugat BistaThis eight-year-old from Kathmandu has already directed a feature film and has his eyes set on the Guinness World Records to become the world’s youngest film director.

A student of Class II at Suryodaya School, Saugat’s film ‘Love You Baba’ is due to be released at movie theatres across Nepal this December.

Once that happens and his claim is accepted by Guinness, he will replace current record holder India’s Kishan Srikanth who directed ‘Footpath’ (2006) when he was just nine years old.

While Srikanth’s film told the story of an orphaned boy who wants to go to school, Saugat’s venture deals with the struggles of father as he attempts to raise his 10-year-old daughter alone.

“When I asked my father if I could direct a film he checked online and found that a nine year old from India had already done it. That gave him the confidence that I could also make an attempt,” Saugat told a gathering at the film’s launch last month.

First hint of ‘life after death’ in biggest ever scientific study

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 27, 2014

Southampton University scientists have found evidence that awareness can continue for at least several minutes after clinical death which was previously thought impossible. 

Some cardiac arrest patients recalled seeing a bright light; a golden flash or the Sun shining

Death is a depressingly inevitable consequence of life, but now scientists believe they may have found some light at the end of the tunnel.

The largest ever medical study into near-death and out-of-body experiences has discovered that some awareness may continue even after the brain has shut down completely.

It is a controversial subject which has, until recently, been treated with widespread scepticism.

But scientists at the University of Southampton have spent four years examining more than 2,000 people who suffered cardiac arrests at 15 hospitals in the UK, US and Austria.

And they found that nearly 40 per cent of people who survived described some kind of ‘awareness’ during the time when they were clinically dead before their hearts were restarted.
