उबरमान्डू

धेरैपछि फेरी एक पटक दिल्लीको गर्मीमा अाफैसँग सिकसिको लाग्नेगरी पसिनाले फतक्कै भिजेको डेढ दिन के भएको थियो मलाई काठमान्डूका कतिपय कुराहरू खड्किन थालेका थिए । १४ सय मिटरमा अवस्थित उपत्यकाको प्रशंसा गरेर नथाकिने मुख्य कुरा यहाँको मौसम हो जस्तो लाग्छ मलाई । सजिलै पुगिने र चढ्न सकिने वरिपरीका हरिया डाँडाहरूलाई पनि म यो ठाउँको सवल […]

सूर्यास्त

तपाईँलाई इमेलमै पछिल्लो ब्लग, लेख र तस्बिर पठाउन पाउनु मेरोलागि खुशीको कुरा हुनेछ । बाकसमा आफ्नो इमेल ठेगाना हाल्नु होला । धन्यवाद 🙂  अाैला छिनमै सकिन्छन् काठमान्डूका खरावी गन्न थाल्ने हो भने । जस्तो कि, अचेल काठमान्डूमा वर्षा थामिएपछिकाे घमाइलोमा सकडहरू धुलाम्ये हुन्छन् । कार्यालय समय सकिएलगत्तैको हतारोमा तिनै सडकमा गाडी र बाईकहरू अटेसमटेस गर्दै […]

Kathmandu Darbar Square- A Day After the #NepalEarthquake

A day after the #NepalEarthQuake, I went to Kathmandu’s Darbar Square. The scale of devastation was massive. Many of its attractive buildings, former palaces and temples, had either completely collapsed or were heavily damaged. The landmark Kastamandap building had been reduced to rubble. Two other beautiful temples nearby were not where they once stood. The “nau […]

What Did Dharahara Mean to You? (#NepalEarthquake)

Collapse of the Dharahara tower symbolized all quake-related devastations. But did the Bhimsen Stambha embody our pride and morale? The #NepalEarthquake claimed thousands of lives. A million houses have been destroyed, most of them in rural villages. If there was a symbol of this destruction, it was the fall of the Dharahara tower. The tower’s collapse […]

The #NepalEarthquake Day

Like everyone else, I knew it was coming. But I didn’t know when. I had no idea about its magnitude. It’s devastating impact. That’s because, like a generation before me, I had not experienced a strong earthquake. Like most Nepalis, I wasn’t prepared for it. Also, no one can predict an earthquake. So why think […]

Around Kathmandu: Champadevi Hill [काठमान्डू वरीपरी: चम्पादेवी डाँडो]

[This is a bilingual post. यो पोस्ट दुइ भाषामा छ ।] नयाँ वर्ष २०७१ को दिन म साथिहरूसँग २२८५ मिटर अग्लो चम्पादेवी डाँडो गएँ । हामी किर्तिपुर नजिकैको र चम्पादेवीको फेदमा अवस्थित मच्छेगाँउमा रहेको पुष्पलाल स्मृति पार्कबाट उक्लियाै । बाटो साँघुरो थियो, धेरैजसो ठाडो उकालो र दुइतर्फी अावतजावतकालागि चुनाैतिपूर्रण । तर हिड्नै अप्ठेरो चाँही होइन […]

Taudaha diktat: hugging will cost you Rs. 1500, kissing 2000, fishing 15,000

Did you notice a recent tweet by veteran journalist Kishore Nepal? This post, particularly its timing, is inspired by his tweet. Yesterday he tweeted: “Suggestions to young lovers of Kathmandu. Taudah is not a good place for romance. Better to visit somewhere else to avoid do & don’t.” Suggestions to young lovers of #Kathmandu. Taudah […]
