Valentine’s Day; Celebration or Sorrow?

Valentine’s Day, a day dedicated to those who love. I’m among those who have never found Valentine’s Day so fascinating. I believe that one doesn’t need any specific day to tell their significant other how special they are. When you’re in love, everyday is and should be equally special. But since almost everything has a special day to mark them, may be Valentine’s Day is no different. couples-holding-hands-in-the-sunset_494728

I do not mean to say that I am completely against the idea of Valentine’s Day. Love is a very beautiful feeling. If falling in love is a scoop of your favorite ice-cream, the feeling of being loved back by someone you love is a chocolate brownie with it. Seeing two people madly in love makes me very happy. What makes me happiest is when the two loving hearts reach their goal and get married. I wish every early twenties baby-babu’s relationship ends up becoming Mr. & Mrs <insert name>.

It’s so sad when two people who love have to part. Circumstances play their role in parting two people and it’s not fair. You love someone, you share all your dreams, start imagining a future with them, kneel down in front of every statue you have faith in, praying they always remain in your life. But what happens in the end? Those who promised they’d always stay, leave the earliest. Why? Its either pressure from the family, one cheating on the other, lies or some lame misunderstanding that leads to breaking up of the relationship that you treasured for so long. Whatever the reason may be, it leads to a very bad heartbreak. At least one of the two involved ends up being so heartbroken, they fear trusting anyone else again. It’s sad how a person, who once loved their heart out, has no faith in love anymore.

This article is dedicated to all those beautiful souls who’ve had their heart broken once in their life or are going through one at this time. It is a tribute to those who have loved to the fullest at one point of time and now fear commitment.

Today, you’ve seen many people post pictures celebrating this special day with their loved ones. And this must have hurt you, or made you feel bad. But remember, Valentine’s Day is about making the person who loves you the most feel special. Make yourself your Valentine, take yourself on a date. I say this with experience, there is no better feeling than pampering yourself with all the love you’ve once invested on someone else. If you have had the potential to make another person feel so good, you definitely deserve to be pampered back equally. Don’t wait for someone else to come pamper you, do it by yourself. It’s about time; don’t rush into a relationship because all your friends have a boyfriend/girlfriend. Wait for the right person to come, because perfect is just a phoney.

Collect all your shattered pieces and make a beautiful art out of you. Love others unconditionally. But first, love yourself the most. Make yourself a priority, because at the end of the day, you are your longest commitment.

The flowering

Why, how, where, when, what, etc are the questions that every enthusiastic conscious brain thinks about. The question about your existence, the meanings of the life are the most common thoughts if you have ever thought seriously about the life.

I like to think these are the most common thoughts through the vision and the way I have understood my life.

The most important thing would be readiness and idea of giving something to achieve something or karma cycle.

The psychological explanations may not match with real life experience as the socialization process also differs as per individual.

Her Sacrifice

She stands unmoved
unmoved by her love
love to her fawns
that’s What mother looks like
like always being ready to sacrifice
Sacrifice for her children and it’s pure
Pure by heart reaching to every man’s soul16708702_370811159971815_5918639177648160936_n

This photo won the award for best photo and led the photographer into depression.

The Cheetahs chased a mother deer and her 2 fawns (baby deers), the mother could’ve easily outrun Cheetahs but instead she offered herself to Cheetahs so that her kids can manage to run to safety.
In the picture she is seen looking at her babies running safely as she is about to get torn into pieces…

I don’t know whether this picture is real or fake but my feelings after looking at this picture is real..

 

Conversation in Heart of Mandala

s

Z: The act of experience is the act of knowing both come hand in hand, there cannot be an experience without knowing and there cannot be a knowing without the experience.

A: yes, but what about the vacuum between the knower and the known and particularly the process of knowing, within that sphere it is a constant motion, a constant flow as Heraclitus concluded, ‘Panta Rehi’, everything flows isn’t that a stretch? The question is not what is known, but who knows? Who is it that knows?

Z: (pause) That is the paradox the knower, knowing, known are not different they are one, if you take all of them out like peeling the layer of onion at last you see its empty that doesn’t mean that it has no essence out of essence it is, the very friction of it creates the universe

A: let me quote from Rig Veda, may be that is what you mean to say ‘That One Thing, breathless, breathed by its own nature: apart from it was nothing whatsoever’ if this is the case, why seek? Why even live? Why the whole drama?

Z: The Veda’s are beautiful very orgasmic to read, every word is an ‘AHHHAAA’ moment by the Vedic thought the universe began as the primal desire the primal desire was the primordial seed the whole drama is the drama of germination of growth, decay and death it is regardless of what we think, the drama we think it is, regardless of all that which comes into words we aimlessly worry and are serious about this, why do you care if there is a drama or not? Why do you see? I don’t seek. I have no seeking business. I enjoy this, mundane or divine, whatever it is; I just enjoy it completely and wholeheartedly

A: If you are not seeking, what are you doing?

Z: I am a seeker, it doesn’t mean that I am not a seeker but I am not seeking, the seek is an absolute observance

A: That’s a very cunning, isn’t it?

Z: How can that not be cunning? Cunningness is a precious possession in equanimity. You know it’s a play and you can play ,You know You are in a movie and play , knowing that the movie is just a projection in an infinite screen you break the cycle, you reach the centre of mandala and now you can be truly playful in your realization that is a purified cunningness’ of the self

A: But you still need to think about paying your phone bills, and paying your taxes and what not this will surely not make you in equanimity because this draws you in

Z: It draws the system in, those who identify as the system or a part of it surely will be driven inside it but I don’t belong to any system no system, no lineage, no nothing I go pay my phone bills, because I have a phone the character has a phone, so he does that that doesn’t limit him, if he comes to a point where he cannot afford it he can easily let go of the phone being in equanimity he doesn’t expect at all, he lives in the now, so he can just be .I am not driven into it, but I do enjoy its faculties, it gives a sort of ease when I need to go to a Dentist or read the notes that needs to be read recite poetry, fall in love, observing the whole thing if it is not working, it is not working, I OBSERVE if it is a fight, it is a fight, I OBSERVE there is no pretense with it.

Riders of the strom

Wheelchair active or passive, balanced or modified, it gives mobility to those individuals who had lost their power of natural mobility.

When i rode wheelchair for the first time in the place, i became quite amaze. Wheelchair looks so mechanical but it’s so comfortable and accessible. Then suddenly a thought raised in my mind and i came to conclude”Wheelchair is not about mobility but it’s about possibility”.

When a differently able person is reinstated with the mobility, they can achieve almost anything. There are endless possibilities and now along with technology advancement researchers has developed modern wheelchairs i.e. standing wheel. This type of standing wheelchair will bring difference on how society  treats differently able people using wheelchairs.

The saddest part is that infrastructure and physical environment are responsible to limit differently able person . Our city needs to adopt disable friendly environment which includes bus station,malls, also the most important disable friendly toilets. For example: Japan is the most friendly country for different able people, which generates maximum potential and encourage differently able person.

likewise, when you promotes disability, your country promotes disability. Thus, let’s make a small social contribution towards wheelchair users on promoting disable friendly environment on our country Nepal.

Digitization Nepal

The world is moving towards digitization.With the advancement in technology, innovation and rapidly growing internet service almost everything is possible from any corner of the world.

If we search about content regarding various topics of Nepal in various search engines, we get fewer Nepalese website with the majority of non-Nepalese website in the list.

However, judging by the pattern in which Nepalese are using the internet, we can see that massive use of the internet is being made (mostly in the form of social media) but are they making any inputs of their knowledge base?

Generally,the use of internet among Nepalese youth is just limited towards using the internet for entertainment and social networking.Not saying that it is bad, but it’s high time that we think about how we can give inputs from our side.

Are they using internet for their purpose or internet is using them as a targeted customer?

The major question here is HOW? Ways any Nepali can give their input is by using different free websites and blogs to share their unique knowledge, experience, views, beliefs and perspectives.For a student, they can upload their academic work, research, and their presentations through various sites.

The only motive is to motivate youths to digitize the knowledge each individual possess, so that the future generations can enjoy or anyone who search the internet knowledge base can use it as a reference guide.

In addition to the commercial use of digital world,educational purpose should also be highlighted by the people who are promoting the use of internet.

The major concern here is to digitize your knowledge base you have as well as the experience you could share, critics you could make and also including the academic knowledge you want to share so that people interested can enjoy and make proper use of your contents.

Bardia – sweetest memory

An insider,a permanent resident of Kathmandu valley and a social work student went on a journey, a flood relief camp on Bardia district,Mohammadpur vdc,Bhaisai(village near Babai river).Our main objective was to collect the data of the loss caused by flood and to know about the community residing in that village

Our camp was situated on the Shree Nepal school and the environment as well as the courtesy of Tharu people was overwhelming.I was always missing one face of my own country Nepal,  beyond the chaos there was a peace.

I saw people living in scarcity but actually the truth was people had been  always satisfied. Far away from the mainstream lifestyle, there was this untouched land  Bhaisai with its unique lifestyle.
