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

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 20, 2013

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 »

Tweets From the Cosmos: Tune In

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 21, 2013

By Deepak Chopra

Deepak ChopraWhen Twitter first appeared, I responded to their idealistic side, which aimed to form a global community that could create change beyond national boundaries. Tweets are now used for a million reasons that don’t aim as high. But it occurred to me that tweeting might be an excellent way to test the shift in consciousness that has been long awaited and equally long pooh poohed.

Who is right, the skeptics who see no evidence that consciousness is rising on a mass scale or the futurists who foresee a completely altered humanity? It’s impossible to measure such a huge phenomenon, but I decided to start small. On a daily basis for the past two or three years I’ve tweeted about cosmic consciousness, mind outside the brain, the nature of reality, the failure of materialism to explain awareness, and other Big Ideas on the edge of acceptability by mainstream science.

To my surprise, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Each tweet starts a dialogue almost the instant the tweet starts circulating. Naysayers and skeptics also participate, but instead of dominating the conversation — or crushing it — which is what you’d find in official scientific circles, the main result is open, eager curiosity.

Here are the three most popular tweets from a day last week:

1. Photons have neither color nor brightness. The world is made manifest through the light of awareness.

2. Taking existence for granted & assuming that science or religion are the path to truth are the greatest impediments to awakening.

3. The perceived physical world is a representation of a perceiving physical brain. Both the world and brain are immaterial in their essence.

Although each one states my own viewpoint, the statements are broad enough to be good debating topics, and each touches on a mystery that needs exploration. Read the rest of this entry »

Best Inventions of the Year 2012

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 2, 2012

Robots, rovers and the rest of 2012’s most important innovations, from the affordable to the extreme


That’s not Photoshop. The Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde has developed a way to create a small, perfect white cloud in the middle of a room. It requires meticulous planning: the temperature, humidity and lighting all have to be just so. Once everything is ready, Smilde summons the cloud out of the air using a fog machine. It lasts only moments, but the effect is dramatic and strangely moving. It evokes both the surrealism of Magritte and the classical beauty of the old masters while reminding us of the ephemerality of art and nature.

Ex-spy chief sees need for bugging Facebook and Twitter

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on April 25, 2012

UK's former spy chief says the authorities need to be able to gain access to private accounts

UK’s former spy chief says the authorities need to be able to gain access to private accounts

Snooping powers of the UK Government should be widened to cover social media sites. The former head of the UK’s intelligence gathering centre GCHQ, Sir David Ormand has put forward the suggestion.

Websites like Twitter and Facebook are being used by criminals, terrorists and pedophiles as a “secret space” in which to communicate, according to Sir David.

He added that those responsible for protecting society need to use up-to-date technology to keep suspects under surveillance.

However, the former Intelligence officer stressed individual accounts should only be ‘hacked’ under special circumstances. Read the rest of this entry »

Twitter Boycott Planned To Protest Twitter’s Censorship Plan

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 28, 2012


Solidarity­!

Twitterers have a message: Tomorrow, turn off the tweets.

Users of the social media site are planning a Twitter boycott to protest the company’s new ability to censor tweets on a country-by-country basis.

Twitter announced Thursday that it can now block tweets, as well as individual accounts, from appearing to users in specific countries, and that it may use the feature to comply with governments’ request to censor information. Before, Twitter could only block tweets and accounts globally.

Some users are calling on fellow Twitterers to silence their tweets on January 28 as a way of expressing their opposition to Twitter’s plan. They are using the hashtag #TwitterBlackout to organize the boycott, and tweets tagged with the hashtag are rolling in at a clip of about 12 per minute. The tweets span a range of languages, including English, German, Spanish and Arabic.

“Twitter starts deleting tweets, I stop posting tweets. Join the #twitterblackout tomorrow!” tweeted @HousseinyRita. Read the rest of this entry »

Could What Happened to MySpace Happen to Facebook?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 16, 2011

Social networks have been in the news lately. Last month MySpace was sold and we learned that Justin Timberlake and his partners have decided to try and help it be successful again.

(MORE: Myspace Sold for $35 Million with ‘Significant Reduction’ of Staff Imminent)

Google has just launched a new service called Google+ that has the blogosphere asking if it is a Facebook killer. So the question I want to explore is whether or not what happened to MySpace could happen to Facebook?

Facebook Learned from MySpace’s Errors

MySpace fell from grace for several reasons. First, they sacrificed the service’s integrity in pursuit of monetization. For those who remember, the user experience declined drastically once the service hit a critical mass.

We were bombarded by ads—highly irrelevant ones and many of a sexual nature (at least mine were). There came a point in time where I literally said to myself that the service had become unusable. I heard the same from a plethora as others as well. The turning point was when they lost control to the advertisers. Their monetization strategy was poor and because of that the site went downhill.

The second reason was because they failed to innovate in order to meet the needs of their users. In short, MySpace ran out of ideas. The site started with the humble idea of giving people their own spaces on the web but never evolved it into much more.

Facebook, on the other hand, has taken a different approach. They have not only been innovating and evolving the service to meet the needs of their users, but they have also been employing a business model that actually works for the service and is valuable to people. This model includes the subtle yet relevant placing of ads. Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook Activism Takes the Next Step in Nepal

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 8, 2011

Kathmandu May 7, 2010:A new facebook activism took form of reality in expression of aggression against the Constitution Assembly Members here in Nepal. From the past few years the Nepalese people have been waiting for their new constitution where one after the other things have prolonged endlessly in expanding the declaration date of constitution.  People specially youths gathered here in Kathmandu Maitigahar area  and peacefully protested against the delay of declartion of constitution under the facebook project Nepal Unites, to “ Show up -Stand up-Speak up”program. People showed a huge concern over the delaying Process and its existence.

Nepal was declared Federal Democratic Republic in 2008 after out casting the long lasting Monarchy system.  From then, a unicameral body of 601 members was formed as a result of the Constituent Assembly election which was held on April 10, 2008. The Constituent Assembly was tasked with writing a new constitution, and to act as the interim legislature for a term of two years which has already expired and the constitutional assembly has further extended their declaration dates accordingly.
