Hungry private teachers and apathetic stakeholders – Ronil Adhikary

The education sector has been the most neglected and apathetic sector since long here in Nepal and it's much in a dilapidated and impeded condition in the context of the ongoing impasse of lockdown. Needless to talk, discuss or debate the immensely significant role of education in the overall spectrum of human, social, and national life. However, neither government and private educational institutions nor guardians, civil societies, and other stakeholders have paid any heed to the genuine concerns of hungry, depressed, and discriminated teachers. Politics in education has been only used as a tool to satisfy the bourgeoning capitalist need of few. The formal and informal organized groups or institutions working in the education sectors have not been successful in transforming the pain of. . .


A message to School Students : Do You speak English?

A MESSAGE TO SCHOOL STUDENTS - Pankaj Khadka अंग्रेज़ी फररर..एकै महिनामा, १००० मा अंग्रेज़ी भाषा , जिब्रो को कमाल अंग्रेज़ी बबाल ' These are some of the tempting motto that might have caught your attention. And many often fall to the prey. The promises made on ads are practically impossible. However, whether its money or fame, most of us choose shortcuts and unquestionably, fruit yielded from shortcuts has shorter life. Learning a second language has never been easy and quick. Likewise, English as a second language has always been difficult to acquire for everyone although the study began right from the early school days. We may have improved our writi. . .


Nepal’s Huge Judgemental Error?” – Ronak Agrawal

After having 3200+ cases, if Government of Nepal is planning to open the Countrywide Lockdown or ease the lockdown. Then there was no point of imposing the entire country in Lockdown when the cases was below 5.  This is definitely a huge judgemental error which has severely affected large portion of Nepalese population. Huge loss faced by Aviation industry, jobs cut off, tourism sector has been collapsed, hotel industry to manufacturing & retail businesses faced downfall and many more sectors are adversely affected through this lockdown. While food and agro based industry has observed huge rise in their revenue. With very minimum benefit but extremely huge disadvantage to national economy, lockdown does not seem to be a better option by keeping in view about the stats of increase i. . .

Employability: Reflection and Reality  – Shubhani Jha

Employability: Reflection and Reality   Education, the fulcrum of sustainable development, holds the key to ‘social inclusion’. It is one of the necessary conditions for advancing quality of life and freedom. In other words, universal access to quality knowledge and skills ensures that everybody has an equal opportunity to be a useful member of society.  Dealing with adolescents at a very critical moment of their lives, college education has an important mission: to provide youths with the necessary knowledge and skills to live in an advanced technological society; to prepare them for the world of work but also for further learning; and to foster social cohesion and transmit the cultural and ethical values necessary for active participation in a democratic society.

Corona is innocent, I’m insane – Dibya Guragain

Corona is innocent, I'm insane For all your children that i turned dead The sins I committed, the mistakes i made I know this destiny is gonna fade Because I’m insane and Corona is innocent You are the reason that we’re created   Before this world, this life This universe and this birth I believe we were there Together with trust   I strangled your love and Slowly betrayed you with time I broke your trust and God you always amended mine   Neither mother nor the moon is that white, How come you are so spotless, so clear and bright? She born my body through her body And You born my soul through your divine light   Let me now be yours Since you were always mine Although I ignored you You w. . .


Walk the Talk – Dr. Rishikesh Wagle

A common refrain that I hear from parents and teachers is, ‘children don’t listen to us.’ And my standard response is, ‘do you model the expected behavior?’ Most people mistake the wisdom contained in this question as a simplistic solution. As I am, so is my child: that’s my simple mantra for parents and teachers. Most researches support this sure shot formula as what we adults do, shouts louder than words. Let’s reflect upon some basic concerns. We require children to listen to us, but how many of us listen to their spoken and unspoken needs or anguish? Forget children, how many of us listen to anyone else with our full being? We insist that children must eat healthy. However, when children are young and impressionable, we introduce them to chocolate, chips and sugared dr. . .


Porn Ban In Nepal ! Will it Solve the Problem? – Binod Acharya

I’m writing this piece almost after a year of porn-ban pushed by the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology in Nepal.  As I was scrolling through my Facebook feed the other day, I stumbled upon a clip of a debate where minister of communication and information technology, who is also a spokesperson for the government, was vehemently opposing the access to free porn in the garb of ethics, culture, discipline, societal norms and possible sexual crimes etc., which I found utterly ridiculous. On the pretext of banning porn, Nepal Government claimed that the premise for the ban was the article 121 of the Criminal Code of 2074, which states that “the internet has made it easy to access sexually obscene materials, disrupted the social values and beliefs of Nepali society and. . .


WRITER’S CORNER : Employee Value : Is it about money or self-esteem? – Nagarjun Shrestha

Interestingly when interviewers ask ‘What is your expectation from this job?’. Should you answer in terms of money or should you answer in terms of work environment? It is a mysterious question that needs to be solved by ourselves. Often employers tend to miscalculate the worth of their employees and they end up investing on people who have made good progress outside but they might not be the right fit for their organization. The hard working employees who help the company to progress higher end up losing motivation mid-way. So the question actually ends up in, ‘What am I doing here?’. When such questions arise, it is a good time to start looking for options in employees terms but employers do not even have glimpse about what is happening inside. All they end up seeing is their . . .
