The “International Day of Girl Child” passed only a few days ago on 11th October with the theme of “Empowering Adolescent Girls; Ending the Cycles of Violence”. I listened to a radio interview of a female right activist who pointed out two terrible cases against girls in the country. A 7 year girl was raped by her own grandfather & a 15 year old girl was raped by her own father. These are only the representative cases, probably hundreds or thousands of such cases mi...

We Nepalese people are fond of festivals & have many of them. Among many festivals we celebrate, Dashain is the major one. There is an ancient saying about Dashain.

Dashain is the festival of togetherness when all the family members working in the different places inside or outside the country gather together & enjoy the festival. It is the festival when we enjoy with new clothes, delicious dishes, play swings,...

Life is another name of struggle. Every living thing born in this world struggles in one way or other to survive in this world, and every creature feels happiness, sadness, mercy, anger, fear etc. in their lifetime and so it is for human beings too. It is no picnic to live a life happily but it is true that every incident - either happiness or sadness or great deed or mischief - certainly gives us a lesson and if we can move forward by remembering the lesson in life we can certai...

Decades of climate change brings risks that people will accept higher temperatures, with more heat waves, downpours & draughts as ‘normal’ & complicate government plans to do more to cut greenhouse gas emissions. “Because the last three decades have seen such a significant rise in global & regional temperature, most people under the age of 30 have not lived in a world without global warming,” told Michel Jarraud, Secretary General of UN World Meteorological...

Yesterday I took a pen & paper to write an exciting & informative article about some global issues which I intended to post in VOY blogging page but lot of topics mingled in my mind & finally I decided not to write about them & instead to write about my own state of mind during the exam time. It is an exam time now; the days of most hard work in whole semester. The only topic that runs on my mind during the exam time is to study hard so as to achieve good marks; h...

Youth advocates discuss ‘youth unemployment’ as a global problem. I always wondered why people said so because unlike the developed countries in our country a job is not a compulsion for girls. But after doing a micro research about youth unemployment in my own college & society, I found that ‘unemployment’ is the major problem in my society too. I surveyed with 50 youths in my class & street passersby in Hetauda Municipality, which is a very negligible number in...

Youths are the most responsible age group of the world. About one fifth of the world’s population is supposed to be composed of youths between 16-24 years. So, we youths must be responsible for our living planet; for its peace, prosperity, & sustainability from our own level. It is true that we can’t make donations of millions but we can bring change in our societies by the action of volunteerism. Today I want to request every youths of the world to do at least one acti...
