announcement and comeback

I had planned to write and post this entry two 40 weeks back. That’s the plan I made six 44 weeks ago. But I could not. Not because it’s a difficult topic to write about (may be it is) but because I was busy. When I was not busy I was lazy. So the news is this: […]

कम्पन तनाव

अग्ला घरहरू मलाई उसै पनि मन पर्दैन थ्यो । विदेशी सहरहरूमा तिनलाई देख्दा हल्का आकर्षण त भयो तर त्यस्तै अग्ला घरमा या पेन्टहाउसहरूमा बस्ने रहर कहिल्यै जागेन । हिजोको कम्पन पछि त झन् हेर्न पनि मन लाग्दैन । एकदमै असुरक्षित जस्तो लाग्ने । आफनो भूईंतल्ला नगन्दाको एकतल्ले घरमै अलि सुरक्षित जस्तो लाग्ने । तर अफिस […]

A Paragraph From Nehru Autobiography

It’s 11:16 PM and I am yawning. I should be actually going to bed though I was there until a few minutes ago reading “An Autobiography” of Jawaharlal Nehru.
