मार्मिक कथा: फेसबुकमा फेला परेको बिना शिर्षकको अत्यन्तै मार्मिक कथा

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 2, 2015

Capture10

हातमा फुल, मुहारमा मुस्कान लिएर हतार हतार त्यस साँझ म घर पुगेँ | दगुर्दै भर्र्याङ् उक्लेँ | यसरी हतारिएको त मेरी श्रीमतीलाई मृतावस्थामा फेला पार्नु पो रहेछ | म जेनको प्रेममा यसरी डुबुल्किएको थिएँ कि मेरी श्रीमती महिनौँ देखी क्यान्सरको बिरामी भएको कुरो समेत मैले थाहा पाउन सकिन रहेछु | आफ्नो मृत्‍यु चाँडै नै हुँदैछ भन्ने कुरा तिनलाई थाहा रहेछ | हाम्रो सम्बन्ध्-बिच्छेद भैगएको भए त्यसको नकारात्मक असर छोरामा नपरोस र छोराको नजरमा म दोषी नदेखियोस भनेर मलाई बचाउन तिनले त्यसो गरेकी रहेछिन – फलस्वरुप छोराको नजरमा म मायालु लोग्ने हुन पुगेँ |जीवनका झिना-मसिना कुराहरु नै वैवाहिक सम्बन्धलाई टिकाउने खम्बाहरु हुन, न की भब्य महल, गाडी, जग्गा-जमीन र पैसा –यी चिजहरुले त केही टेवा दिने मात्र हो, मुख्य कडी यी होइनन!!!!

जब म त्यस रात घर पुगेँ, मेरी श्रीमती खान पस्किन तरखर गर्दै थिइन् । तिनको हात समात्दै मैले भनें: “तिमिसित एउटा कुरा गर्नु छ्”। तिनी बसिन र चुपचाप खान थालिन् । मैले तिनको आँखामा उदासीपन महसुस गरें । अचानक मेरो वाक्य बन्द भयो | तर जे कुरा मैले धेरै दिनदेखि सोचिरहेको थिएँ, त्यो भन्न जरुरी थियो – म तिनिसँग सम्बन्ध बिच्छेद गर्न गैरहेको थिएँ | मैले आफ्नो कुरा संयमका साथ राखेँ | मेरो कुराबाट तिनी बिस्मयचकित् भएको पाइन, बरु नम्र भएर सोधी: किन? मैले तिनको प्रश्नलाई टार्न खोजेँ | तिनी रिसाइन र चप्स्टिक हुर्याएर मलाई ‘नामर्द’ भन्दै चिच्याइन |

त्यस रात हामी दुवैबिच कुराकानी भएन,तिनी रुइरहेकी थिइन् | हाम्रो बैबाहिक सम्बन्धमा के त्यस्तो खोट देखापर्‍यो भन्ने कुरा तिनले जान्न चाहनु स्वभाविकै कुरो हो | तर मसंग तिनलाई दिने त्यस्तो सन्तोषजनक जवाफ थिएन | जेन भन्ने महिलाले मेरो हृदय जितिसकेको थियो र मैले मेरो श्रीमतीलाई माया गर्न छोडिसकेको थिएँ | तिनिप्रति दया जागेर आयो | गह्रुगो अपराधबोधकासाथ मैले एउटा सम्बन्ध्-बिच्छेदको सम्झौता पत्र तयार पारेँ, जसानुसार हाम्रो घर, गाडी र मेरो कम्पनीको ३०% शेयरमा तिनलाई हकदार बनाएँ | तिनले त्यो सम्झौता-पत्रमा एक नजर दिइन र फाडेर च्यातच्युत पारीन | दश दश बर्षसम्म एउटै छानामुनी बसेकी ती महिला अब अजनवी भैसकेको थियो |यस घरमा आएर तिनको आफ्नो समय, शिप, शक्ति र यौवन बित्थामा खेर गएकोमा म अत्यन्तै दुखित थिएँ | तर मैले जे निर्णय गरेँ, त्यसबाट पनि म बिमुख उन चहिरहेको थिइन, कारण म जेनलाई असाध्यै माया गर्थेँ | अन्तत मैले अपेक्षा गरे अनुरुप तिनी डाँको छोडेर रुन थालिन् |साँच्चै भन्नु हो भने तिनको रुवाइले मलाई केही सान्त्वना दिलायो | अनि धरै दिनदेखि मनमा सँगालिराखेको सम्बन्ध्-बिच्छेद गर्ने बिचार अहिले आएर ठोस् र स्पष्ट भएजस्तो लाग्यो | Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

Facebook’s WhatsApp Acquisition Explained

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 21, 2014

Also: How you, too, can make a $19 billion smartphone app. Also: Not really.

The social media giant is planning to acquire WhatsApp, which has over 450 million active users. TIME’s Jared Newman describes what the app does and why Facebook is spending so much money for it

Facebook Announces New Android ProductNow that Facebook is planning to acquire WhatsApp for $19 billion, perhaps your head is swimming with questions. Among them: How can I also make billions of dollars by selling my mobile app to Facebook? As someone who writes about technology for a living and who’s definitely not a billionaire, I can’t answer that for you. But I can help with some other things you might want to know:

What is WhatsApp?

It’s a messaging app you can use in place of your wireless carrier’s regular texting service. You enter your phone number and WhatsApp looks through your contact list for other people who are using the app. Then you can message those users all you want without limits or overage charges. The app is available on many platforms and is free to download and has no ads, but it costs $1 per year after the first year.

How popular is it?

Right now, WhatsApp has more than 450 million active users — meaning they use the service at least once a month — compared to 1.23 billion for Facebook. Those users send 500 million pictures back and forth per day, about 150 million more than Facebook.

How much money is $19 billion in the startup world, exactly?

A lot. My colleague Harry McCracken put together a chart of big startup acquisitions, and WhatsApp is the biggest. Most deals don’t come anywhere close. Bigger companies tend to change hands for a lot more money, however. For instance, Comcast wants to buy Time Warner Cable for $45 billion. Read the rest of this entry »

Even after Bedi Twitter apology, the first “Buddha” serial with misinformation

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 20, 2013

By Ram Kumar Shrestha

Buddha_Zee_TVCreating misinformation on Buddha birthplace from Indian side is not a new issue andBuddha born in Nepal Nepali side is very furious from this kind of regular drama and attempt to take an unnecessary advantage from Buddha’s Global importance. A recent Hindi language television serial, “Buddha” launched by Zee TV Network already frustrated Nepalese by Indian over interference.

 In reaction Nepalese did not limit them only in social medias, but also on September 13, staged demonstrations in the streets of Kathmandu against the serial, Nepal Cable TV Association blocked the channel when the new series on the life of Buddha premiered on Sunday (Sept. 8) and which prompted the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu to post hastily the next day, September 14th, on its Facebook wall, “The question of where Lord Buddha was born was settled over 2000 years ago when Emperor Ashoka installed the pillar with his inscription in Lumbini. Buddha was born in Lumbini, which is in Nepal.”  And also actor and TV presenter and commentator Kabir Bedi Twitter apology appeared, “Yes, my friends, I mis-spoke. Forgive me. Lord Buddha was certainly born in Lumbini, Nepal. My apologies to all whose feelings were hurt.” And this issue got space in International papers like Huffington Post and Washington Post as well.

 Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement wrote letter to Chairman of Cabinet of Nepal Khil Raj Regmi, however; some Movement activists informed that when they had gone through the serials on line specially the first serial was very embarrassing because of not corrected misinformation. This clearly shows that Movement guess and writing letter to Chairman of Cabinet of Nepal were correct. And wrote another letter to him as our guess was correct and the scenario is changed now.  Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook is bad for you: Get a life!

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 2, 2013

Using the social network seems to make people more miserable

FacebookTHOSE who have resisted the urge to join Facebook will surely feel vindicated when they read the latest

research. A study just published by the Public Library of Science, conducted by Ethan Kross of the University of Michigan and Philippe Verduyn of Leuven University in Belgium, has shown that the more someone uses Facebook, the less satisfied he is with life.

Past investigations have found that using Facebook is associated with jealousy, social tension, isolation and depression. But these studies have all been “cross-sectional”—in other words, snapshots in time. As such, they risk confusing correlation with causation: perhaps those who spend more time on social media are more prone to negative emotions in the first place. The study conducted by Dr Kross and Dr Verduyn is the first to follow Facebook users for an extended period, to track how their emotions change.

The researchers recruited 82 Facebookers for their study. These volunteers, in their late teens or early 20s, agreed to have their Facebook activity observed for two weeks and to report, five times a day, on their state of mind and their direct social contacts (phone calls and meetings in person with other people). These reports were prompted by text messages, sent between 10am and midnight, asking them to complete a short questionnaire.

When the researchers analysed the results, they found that the more a volunteer used Facebook in the period between two questionnaires, the worse he reported feeling the next time he filled in a questionnaire. Volunteers were also asked to rate their satisfaction with life at the start and the end of the study. Those who used Facebook a lot were more likely to report a decline in satisfaction than those who visited the site infrequently. In contrast, there was a positive association between the amount of direct social contact a volunteer had and how positive he felt. In other words, the more volunteers socialised in the real world, the more positive they reported feeling the next time they filled in the questionnaire.

A volunteer’s sex had no influence on these findings; nor did the size of his (or her) social network, his stated motivation for using Facebook, his level of loneliness or depression or his self-esteem. Dr Kross and Dr Verduyn therefore conclude that, rather than enhancing well-being, Facebook undermines it. Read the rest of this entry »

Online labour exchanges: The workforce in the cloud

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 5, 2013

“Talent exchanges” on the web are starting to transform the world of work

20130601_WBD001FOR translating a 22-minute video from English into Spanish at short notice, 7Brands Global Content, a professional-translation firm based in New York, quoted “approximately $1,500”. This fee seems in line with the local going rate for the job from a firm which boasts membership of three professional associations and clients such as Chase and Bank of America. Not so long ago, paying the local rate was the only option. Today anyone seeking to get this sort of job done is only a click away from the whole world of professionals competing to do it far cheaper.

That same translation job was advertised on Elance.com and oDesk.com, the two busiest among several newish online marketplaces for work, or “talent exchanges”. On Elance it soon attracted 25 bids, from individuals in 15 countries. For around half the bidders, this would be their first job, which raised questions about how good their work would be (especially the Uruguayan who promised to “translate your interview perfetly”). But some seemed competent. According to his Elance page, “oswaldo g”, from Colombia, has already completed 31 jobs, earning a combined $4,193 and a satisfaction rating of 4.9 (out of 5). He quoted a tempting $16.44 an hour—though not as tempting as the five bids on oDesk (three of them by five-star-rated workers), from Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico and the Philippines. Each of them offered a flat rate for the completed job, ranging from $33.33 down to just $22.22. Read the rest of this entry »

Battle of the internet giants: Survival of the biggest

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 30, 2012

Concern about the clout of the internet giants is growing. But antitrust watchdogs should tread carefully

THE four giants of the internet age—Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon—are extraordinary creatures. Never before has the world seen firms grow so fast or spread their tentacles so widely. Apple has become a colossus of capitalism, accounting for 4.3% of the value of the S&P 500 and 1.1% of the global equity market. Some 425m people now use its iTunes online store, whose virtual shelves are packed to the gills with music and other digital content. Google, meanwhile, is the undisputed global leader in search and online advertising. Its Android software powers three-quarters of the smartphones being shipped. Amazon dominates the online-retail and e-book markets in many countries; less well known is its behind-the-scenes power in cloud computing. As for Facebook, if the social network’s one billion users were a country, it would be the world’s third largest.

The digital revolution these giants have helped foment has brought huge benefits to consumers and businesses, and promoted free speech and the spread of democracy along the way. Yet they provoke fear as well as wonder. Their size and speed can, if left unchecked, be used to choke off competition. That is why they are attracting close scrutiny from regulators.

Christopher Castillo Arrested After Threatening To Kill Obama On Facebook

Christopher Castillo Arrested After Threatening To Kill Obama On Facebook

The Huffington Post  |  By  

Christopher Castillo
Some people just don’t know when to stop talking, or when to stop posting on Facebook.

A Florida man was arrested this November after posting threatening messages about President Barack Obama on Facebook. When Secret Service agents came to question 28-year-old Christopher Castillo about his violent comments, The Smoking Gun reports that the situation quickly deteriorated.

On Nov. 1, Castillo wrote the following on Facebook, apparently in response to Obama’s views on health care:

That’s the last straw, if he gets re-elected I’m going to hunt him down and kill him watch the life disappear from his eyes.

 Threatening the U.S. president’s life is never taken lightly. After a tip-off from a concerned citizen, Secret Service agents arrived at Castillo’s Melbourne home on Nov. 8 to investigate his intentions behind the Facebook post. Read the rest of this entry »

US election: How can it cost $6bn?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 7, 2012

By Cordelia Hebblethwaite

 The estimated price tag for the US elections in November is almost $6bn (£3.8bn). Why so much?

“The sky is the limit here,” says Michael Toner, former chair of the US Federal Election Commission.

“I don’t think you can spend too much.”

In a time of general belt-tightening, it may sound like a surprising argument, but Toner believes there should be more – not less – spending on US elections.

Anything that engages voters, and makes them more likely to turn out is, he says, a good thing.

“It’s very healthy in terms of American politics… it’s a symptom of a very vigorous election season, there’s a lot at stake here.”

On 6 November, Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, is set to challenge Barack Obama for the presidency, and polls suggest the margin between them could be wafer thin.

New figures just released by the Center for Responsive Politics, an independent research group which tracks money in politics, estimate the total cost of November’s elections (for the presidency, House of Representatives and Senate) will come in at $5.8bn (£3.7bn) – more than the entire annual GDP of Malawi, and up 7% on 2008.

Squaring up the figures

Mitt Romney (l) and Barack Obama (r)

Projected spending estimates for 2012 US elections:

  • Total cost – $5.8bn (£3.7bn)
  • Presidential election – $2.5bn (£1.6bn)
  • Super Pacs and other outside groups – at least$750m (£480m) Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook Upshot: Another Misinformation by India

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 1, 2012

In an Indian International Film Festival in Florida, Tampa Bay, USA from Feb 15-17, 2013 the organizer is going to show 36 minutes video documentary about the Buddha Birth Place claiming that Buddha was born in Orrisa, India. Buddha is synonym to truthfulness. Sometimes artists, sometimes writers and even sometimes diplomats are raising unnecessary issues threatening neighbors’ sovereignty. In the 21st century we must be civilized and not like in Stone Age. We must respect others’ identity. Even to protect truthfulness we must raise our voice to stop that film show.

Facebook Upshot: Wishing to born in Lumbini

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 30, 2012

The weather was surprisingly wonderful today, so I went to the town centre wearing T-shirt with Buddha’s photo. Three guys came to me and hugged. After having chat for a while they expressed their wish to born in Lumbini, Nepal where Buddha was born in their next life. I said, “Tathastu (Amen)” and we hugged each other again. This time we had different feeling than before.

Facebook Upshot: बुद्ध जन्मस्थलबारे दलाई लामाको बिबादास्पद भनाइ

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 11, 2012

बुद्ध जन्मस्थलबारे दलाई लामाको बिबादास्पद भनाइ : दलाई लामाको यस किसिमको अभिब्यक्ति नयाँ नभएर पुरानै हो । यही कारणले गर्दा लुम्बिनी-कपिलवस्तु दिवस अभियानको तर्फबाट गत बर्षको बुद्ध जयन्तीमा केही पुस्तक नौ भाषामा अनुवाद गरिएको एघार पुस्तकका लेखक अग्नि एइकरमान र डोमो गेशे रिङ्गपोछेसंग अन्तरबार्ता लिएपछि (http://worldamity.wordpress.com/2011/05/11/an-interview-with-agni-frank-eickermann-and-domo-geshe-rinpoche/) यो बर्षको बुद्ध जयन्तीको अबसरमा दलाई लामासंग अलि कुटनितिक किसिमको अन्तरबार्ता लिने प्रयासको लागि अभियानबारे जानकारी दिंदै उनका प्रशासकीय सहयोगी तेन्जिन ग्याल्पोसंग पत्राचार गरेको थिएँ र यसबारेको जानकारी अभियानकी केन्द्रिय सल्लाहकार डा आरजु देउवा र वेलायतका लागि नेपाली राजदूत डा सुरेश चन्द्र चालिसेलाई पनि गराएको थिएँ । शायद अभियानबारे अध्ययन गर्न समय लागेकोले होला तीन महिनाभन्दा बढी समयपछी उन्का सहयोगीको जबाफ आयो दलाई लामाको अत्यन्तै ब्यस्तताका कारण अन्तरबार्ता दिन नसकिने ब्यहोरा सहितको । सोभन्दा पहिला संसारकै सबैभन्दा बढी चल्ने पत्रिकामध्येमा पर्ने हफिङ्टन पोस्टमा प्रकाशित तिब्बतको बिषयमा उन्ले बोलेको केही समाचारहरुमा दलाई लामा जस्ता ब्यक्तिबाट राजनीतिक गन्ध आउने किसिमका अभिब्यक्ति दिनुभन्दा आध्यत्मिक अभिब्यक्तिहरु मात्रैमा सीमित हुनु उन्को ब्यक्तित्वलाई संधै उचो राख्न सहायकसिद्ध हुन सक्ने आशययुक्त सुझाब सहितका कमेण्टहरु राख्ने गरेको थिएँ ।

हालै उन्को बेलायत भ्रमणलाई सफल बनाउन मैले बेलायत छाडनु अघिदेखि थुप्रै नेपालीहरु खटिरहनु भएको थियो र यो समाचार (http://nagariknews.com/diaspora/europe-prabas/42457-2012-06-22-09-28-20.html) पछि थुप्रै साथीहरुबाट मैले प्रश्न प्राप्त गरेकोछु वास्तबिकता के हो भन्ने आशय सहितको । यहाँ दुई कुरा महत्वपूर्ण छन – बुद्ध जन्मस्थल र बौद्धमार्गको बिकास । दलाई लामाको ‘बुद्धमार्गको विकास भारतबाट सुरु भएको’ भनाइबाट समाचार शुरु भएको छ । बुद्ध नेपालमा जन्मनु भयो र भारतमा तपस्या गरेर त्यहीं ज्ञान प्राप्त गरी बुद्ध धर्मको प्रचार प्रसार पनि गर्नु भयो । यसरी नेपालमा जन्मनु भएको बुद्धले भारतमा गएर ज्ञान प्राप्त गरी प्राप्त गरेको ज्ञानलाई प्रचार प्रसार भारतबाटै शुरु गर्नु भएकोले बुद्धमार्गको बिकास भने भारतबाट हुन गयो – अभियान यो कुरामा स्पस्ट छ । बुद्धको जन्मस्थल भएकै कारण युनेस्कोले नेपालको लुम्बिनीलाई विश्व सम्पदा सूचिमा राखेको छ भने जापानको आर्थिक सहयोगमा युनेस्को मार्फत वेलायतकै प्रोफेसर कनिंघामको नेतृत्वमा पाँच बर्षे परियोजना पनि चलिरहेको छ । यसरी बिस्वब्यापी मान्यता र ऐतिहासिल प्रमाणका बाबजूद शक्तिका भरमा सत्यका पर्यायबाची बुद्धको उन्कै नाममा झूटको खेती गरेर उन्को जन्मस्थलको बारेमा सिर्जित दिग्भ्रम निस्तेज पारी बर्षेनी हजारौं बिस्व पर्यटकहरुलाई झुक्याइ झुक्याइ नक्कली बुद्ध जन्मस्थल लैजाँदै गरिएको मानब अधिकार हननबाट यथार्थताबोध गराएर दिग्भ्रमितहरुको हनन भएको मनब अधिकार जोगाउनु अभियानको एउटा प्रमुख उद्धेस्य हो ।

कार्यक्रममा ‘बुद्ध जहाँ जन्मिए पनि त्यो बिषयलाई बुद्धमार्गीहरुले ठूलो कुरा बनाउनु हुँदैन।’ भन्दै आफूले भने बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको कुरा दलाई लामाले गरेका हुन भने त्यो किमार्थ मान्य हुन सक्तैन । ठूलाले बोल्दैमा असत्य पनि सत्य हुने भन्ने कुरा हुँदैन । समाचारमा प्रयुक्त ‘बुद्धमार्गको विकास भारतबाट सुरु भएको’ कै आधारमा बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको भन्ने रुपमा बुझिएको हो कि भन्ने अनुमानलाई ‘आयोजकले बुद्धको जन्मबारेको लामाको भनाईले केही तित्तता अनुभव भएपछि’ ले गलत प्रमाणित गरिदिन्छ । कार्यक्रम संयोजक डम्मर घले र शुरुदेखि यस्लाई सफल बनाउन लागि पर्नुहुने काजी शेर्पा, जो यस अभियानका वेलायत राष्ट्रिय समितिका सल्लाहकार पनि हुनुहुन्छ, दुबै वेलायतमा बस्नु हुने बुद्धिस्ट समुदायभित्रका बिद्धत बर्गमा पर्नुहुने भएकोले पहिलो अनुमान सही हुने आधार देखिन्न । आफूले भने ‘बुद्ध जहाँ जन्मिए पनि त्यो बिषयलाई बुद्धमार्गीहरुले ठूलो कुरा बनाउनु हुँदैन।’ भन्दै सत्य बोल्नेलाई सत्य बोल्नमा निरुत्साहित गर्न प्रयास गर्दै आफूले भने असत्य कुरोलाई सत्य भन्न खोज्नु बुद्धको ‘झूटो नबोल्नू’ शिक्षासंग मेल खाने कुरो कसरी हुन सक्ला र? बुद्धको सदमार्गको अनुयायी त त्यही हो जो सत्य बोल्छ न कि सत्यमाथि सीमित स्वार्थका कारण अनाबस्यक राजनीति गर्छ ।

Facebook Upshot: Buddhism: Time to Catalyze World Peace

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 10, 2012

Article in Shri Lanka Guardian on the occasion of Buddha Jayanti: Kindness, compassion and empathy are the synonyms of Buddhism. The eyes of Buddha are the insignia of love. Lumbini is the place where mind and heart take pleasure in for peace. This is the land when eyes are closed, heart opens. And Lumbini symbolized ultimate peace and harmony. This could be the right time to work together to declare Lumbini a World Peace City to catalyze World Peace in the present critical world situation.
