THE ONE WHO CAN MAKE A CHANGE IS “…”

Let me begin my article by quoting the renowned Russian writer, Leo Tolstoy's line, "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself". This statement conveys a bitter reality because of which most of us cannot get what we want.  We, Nepalese are always proud of ourselves for being recognized as brave and courageous in the world. And, we are also proud that birth place of Lord Buddha and Mt. Everest are in Nepal. We are proud that we are living in this naturally beautiful country and etc. Yes, this is true. We are living in naturally well-equipped country and our ancestors had proved their bravery by fighting big wars and doing most adventurous tasks. But, have you ever thought what you have done to make yourself and your country proud, and prove yourself brave and courageous. I think we are living behind the mask of bravery that our ancestors had created. We are still selling the name of our ancestors to introduce ourselves as brave ones.

Ngonpa Thyakchhok Chholing Monastery  This is Khiraule, a small Sherpa village which lies at 27.546419 degree latitude and 86.816045 degree longitude in the eastern part of Nepal in Solukhumbu district. Situated at the south of Mt. Everest it has a very beautiful monastery called Ngonpa Thyakchhok Chholing Monastery. It is one of the oldest monasteries in Nepal and highly appreciated by the visitors for its mesmerizing and unique external design. The tall pine trees surrounding the monastery which are rarely foun d in Nepal are believed to be brought from Darjeeling more than hundred and fifty years ago by its patrons. Cultural significance of this monastery is equally valued because it is said that "Silent Meditation" ('ङ्युङ्ने ' in Sherpa and 'मौन ब्रत' in Nepali) actually first started from this monastery in eastern Nepal. The mega earthquake measuring 7.8 Magnitude that hit Nepal on 25 April 2015, has destroyed the most important parts of the

मलाई एउटा रमाइलो घट्नाको याद आयो!

साँझको समय थियो । तर अध्याँरो भइसकेको थिएन । ठ्याक्कै कति बजेको थियो, राम्रोसँग याद भएन । त्यस्तै साँढे ६ जति बजेको थियो होला । म बौद्ध घुम्न गएर कोठातिर फर्कदै थिए । बौद्धबाट म बस्ने ठाँऊ (मण्डिखटार) पुग्नलाई हिँडेर त्यस्तै ४०/४५ मिनेट जति लाग्छ । म एक्लै अलि हतारमै हिँडिरहेको थिँए । संयोगले त्यस दिन विश्वकर्मा पूजा परेको थियो । सबै साना-ठूला कलकारखाना तथा बाईक र गाडी workshop हरुमा तोरण टाँगेर पूजा गरिरहेका थिए । कलकारखानाका कामदारहरु रमाइलो गरिरहेका थिए, धेरैजसो चाँहि जाँडले मात्तिसकेका थिए । म ठ्याक्कै महाँकाल चोकमा मुल सडक पार गरेर तेन्जिङ चोकतर्फ हिँडिरहेको थिए । अचानक मान्छेहरु दौडन थाले, सबै भागाभाग  गर्न थाले । के  भइरहेको  हो, मैले केहि बुझ्नै सकिन । दुईजना केटाहरु भाग्दै-भाग्दै मेरै छेऊमा आईपुगे र मलाई पनि "भाग्नुस् दाई" भन्दै दुवैजना त्यहाँबाट भागेर महाँकाल चोकमा रहेको खुल्ला चौरभित्र छिरे । अलि परपट्टि एउटा बाईक workshop थियो । त्यस भित्रबाट टाउकोमा फेटा बाँधेका केटाहरुको एउटा हुल कराउँदै बाहिर निस्केर मै तिर दौडेर आउँन थाले । मैले सोँचे, आज विश्वकर्मा पूज
