a joke

I remembered a joke, its like, there was a guy who was very devoted & worshipped God, time passed, he continued his pursuit, ... , and apparently one day God appeared in front of him:
"So tell me what you wish?"
"Oh almighty, I want a straight bridge from here, frok Kathmandu, to New York"
"Thats pretty materialistic, kid!, why dont you ask something else, hmm.. something about knowledge ... and wisdom, something like that!"
"... I have always wondered what are girls, I want to know girls, tell me what are they actually?"

"Ok fine, how many lanes do you want for the bridge?"

छठ २०६३ - पहिलोपल्ट रानीपोखरीमा

With my friend, i used to visit the Bagmati river banks for chhath celebrations in previous years, this year however, the RaniPokhari was opened for the Chhath festival for the first time and i happened to be there for a view.
It was a pretty good participation there... by the people from all races and places.

यसपालिको तिहार -२

kids were enjoying the fireworks, while i was busy playing with the camera. I wanted to take a shot of the lights - coming out of the houses far away, but still confused - whether the camera would pick those lights or not.
Anyway i tried, and accidentally i got a blurred shot. Later i intentionally tried to make these lights move in my own way.. some obeyed some didnt! :)

I hope you had a nice time in Tihar.

यसपालीको तिहार

यसपालीको तिहार,
यसै आयो, त्यसै गयो,
अंध्यारो बत्तीको छांयामा
देउसी-भैलोको सम्झना,
यसै आयो, त्यसै गयो!!

what we see!

We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.

पुजा र प्रेम

"म पुजा गर्छु किनकि म भगवानलाई प्रेम गर्छु"
यसमा निकै ठुलो बहस हुन सक्छ
मेरो कुरा तेत्ति नै हो।

20$ bill is a lesson

My friend sent me this piece:

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up.
He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this." He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up. He then asked, "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.
"Well," he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty. "Now who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special - Don't ever forget it!"

back again...

joined office just today after the dashain break. took almost 1 week off, extra...
works, schedules, and contacts all jumbled up... i hate the feeling when i have to join the work after a leave.
i have to do it nevertheless, and like it as well. [just the inertia of holiday spirit]
am now trying to get into this world... and speed up the work.


but i feel like i have changed my views on the general concept of the rituals and all those proceedings that we follow in our culture... i had [and still have] a deep respect in the rituals.. but somewhere i feel like its a waste... specially some deeds when they are absolutely related to money; when it's measured by how much u show...
i saw it myself in the last rituals of my grandpa...

i think i only believe in devotion and most important of all - love.
love to the religion, love to god...
i think its all about love and nothing else.

vijaya dashami - here it passes away with him!

this dashain... quite sad and boring to me!

i lost my grandfather last saturday. he was fine in the evening... but all of a sudden, he was gone... within the sleep itself - slept for a long long time. he was an asthma patient since long.
- - now that you are gone - - feeling your absense - - missing you old buddy!!
- - now and again i remember those few of the small wishes that u had - which remained incomplete. i m really sorry for those - some day i will take care of them.


thus, this was quite a tasteless and tragic dashain for me. tasteless? literally - yes.

buddy, wherever u r, may u rest in peace.
