The key to ending the global chain, that perpetuates itself and has done so for centuries, is...

Have you ever felt alone? Scared, worried...hungry perhaps? One of the most common ways to cope with this is to reach out to an ultimate being. That natural spirit, be it person, animal, plant, etc., you have some supreme thing that you worship. Regardless of bad emotions/ feelings, you might even pray to this god when you feel good. But is it right for me to tell you what god to pray? Is it right for you tell me and chastise me if I do not? These are the questions of religious fre...

My grandfather was also very energetic youth of his time. He was born on high profile ruling family of local level as he was the son of Landlord having authority from autocratic Ranas. My father told me if we remembered the land property of our grandpa in sindhuli (In Marinkhola of Sindhuli) that would be almost equal to three quarter of Bhaktapur District of Nepal. “Even rhino horns and some valuable stones were there in our home” my father told me.
