Ground Control to Major Tom

This picture was taken during our short visit to Nepal Television during MSNG Kathmandu. The visit to the state owned television station was quite insightful as we got to know that the TV station still used VHS tapes and technologies from late 90s and early 2000s to operate. Though there have been plans on upgrading the equipments as Nepal Television plans to operate full HD by the end of 2018, it still looks a far fetched dream to me.

The first Television station in Nepal, Nepal Television serves as a pioneer in Television and News broadcaster in the country. I would certainly be glad if they improved upon their services and have their equipments upgraded as soon as possible.


innocence and fear by nischhal pradhan

I wonder what is more powerful? Innocence or fear? Does fear take over one’s innocence? The fear of failure in life may have have a different effect in one’s life but with confidence the fear can be overcame while you retain your innocence.

Buildings may fall but faith will not

It’s wonderful how a stroll in the evening can make something out of nothing. In the same way, walking with Hem today, reminded me of our old days when we used to spend hours clicking pictures around Basantapur and still it wasn’t enough for us.

The destruction brought by the massive quake on 25th of April will have an everlasting memory to people like me, who used to get lost while staring at the ancient structures, landmarks, temples and palaces to name a few. Seeing them brought down into rubbles has made me realise that nothing will last for real. Though many houses and such landmarks had fallen, it is quite amazing to see the amount of resilience and faith in people despite of the disaster they faced just over a month ago.

I took this picture earlier in the evening today and made me realize faith is something that we will always have, it will last regardless of our own existential crisis.

The flight of freedom

उद्छन ति चरी वरिपरि, मनपरी

उडू जस्तै लग्छ तिनी जस्तै सधैँ भरि

मन मा प्रश्न उठ्छन अनगिन्ति नानाथरि

दिन मै सपनी देख्छु हिजो आज आखाँ भरि

उडू जस्तै लग्छ तिनी जस्तै सधैँ भरि

द्छन ति चरी वरिपरि, मनपरी – Caption by Rajju Dangol
