You Can Only Take a Horse to a River-You Cannot Make it Drink!!!

मे 18, 2007

This perfectly suits the newly weds in the cabinet in Nepal. People who never have had responsible public portfolios in the past are ruling the country. The country is going down the line every day. Socialist policies which were long dead for the world are taking over the market economy in Nepal. Maoists are on the road to ruin the future of millions of Nepalese for the sake of their political goals. A fresh example-Melamchi Project.

SAVE a Dollar a Week-Educate a Child in Nepal

मे 5, 2007

children These children are just like us, only that they have been deprived of the basic right to education. SEBS-NSP is a program run by the Ex-Budhanilkantha School which has been helping these unfortunate children for a long time and it would be great if some of you are willing to give it a hand.

Just save a dollar a week and you will end up sponsoring a child for a year. Cut back on the drinks in the bar you go to, and let the child benefit from the opportunity of going to school, which would not materialize otherwise.Here is a quote from the NSP website.

Here is a reason why you should help…

Delving Into the Life of a Child Conductor-Do We Have a Heart?

अक्टोबर 19, 2006

Streetchildren A ten-year-old child was there calling out to people to get into the bus. His clothes were tattered and torn everywhere and re-stitched in many other places. The yellow stains of spices and oil were clearly shining from his dark, muddy clothes which probably had not seen water for days. His bare feet were covered with dust and one could easily tell that he had not taken a shower for months. A four-foot tall, lean figure with sunken cheeks, he looked as if he was suffering from malnutrition. From his outer appearance he looked too weak to speak and yet, he was continuously uttering the same words,”Ratnapark, Ratnapark…..”

Pratistha’s Clothes Found!!!

जुन 30, 2006

Hopes fade away as more and more days go without any significant findings. Pratistha Budhathoki, an exchange student from Nepal, has been missing for more than 10 days now and still we have no clue as to what may have happened to her.
