There are two African-American women who have been on the arts radar recently--Misty Copeland and Keke Palmer. I've been following Keke Palmer since my parents introduced me to the movie Akeelah and the Bee seven years ago. She was refreshing and zesty with the right kind of sass. At the same time, she reminded me that an actress like her was an oddity in arts today. African-American, young, female and ambitious. A lethal combination of brains and beauty, Keke Palmer is taking Broa...

To be a champion or great achiever is not by a sudden flight; it takes preparation. Today, many know Mark Zuckerberg, the Jewish American and inventor of Facebook. How did he make it? In high school he excelled in languages, literature, philosophy, history, art, archeology, programming, etc., and was taught basic language programming by his father, Edward Zuckerberg. His father also employed a software developer, David Newman, for him as a tutor in 1995. Mark laboured, developing programmes, esp...

You don't need to raise your shoulders or seek what it is you are not close to. All you need do is to be calm and steady, seeking only the traits that will promote your life. We all want to be praised and be seen as great men and women -" the craving of a man is to be appreciated." Time is the most influential property here, which is fuelled by patience. Before you make any mistakes trying to fit in due to certain obligations, ask yourself why you need to. This question brings out the ugly and b...

There is no denying the fact that there is poverty in the world. It is an inevitable fact that people around the world must suffer because they have no money to sufficiently live on. Children in some places like Bangladesh have to go to work because they are the primary breadwinner in there family. Their parents don't even earn enough in order to maintain a family. The simple solution is to not let poverty define us. We must not tell ourselves that because we are poor that we wil...

Here is my confession during times of an economic crisis: I’m a young individual living in confined space, constructed with thin walls of a penny drop awaking, yet still unprivileged of the democratic change fought for. Parents identified and defined by 2nd level tax bracket, eating dinner of just two items in plate with occasional additives from Sunday lunch. I seek to find greener grass and a modus operandi; Mind of an opportunist, and soul of a hard-man-ship I push, and...

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. Once I asked a counterpart...
