‘Out of the cocoon, the pupa felt that it was dying but it was a new beginning instead, a beautiful butterfly started flying’ is the popular motivational statement among us and it is inspiring as well. Similarly, when we feel that the whole world is collapsing, a new sunshine appears for us. The moral is that ‘after every end, comes a new beginning’, so we should never lose hope and continue our struggle because it is what keeps us alive. If complex circumstances come on your...

With the Conference of Parties (COP22) running, climate change has become a hot issue of discussion as it is a major time of policy making against the threat of the planet because “We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation than can do something for it.” (Jay Inslee) With the whole globe severely affected by the climate change, we can’t neglect the fact that more than 90% of climate change is induced by humans. Our luxury is making th...

Surprisingly, we all want ‘Better’ but if we are asked about how actually ‘Better’ looks like, it is quite confusing. It’s because we always dream of better but never take action to create ‘Better’. And my small brain started storming about 'how better looks like' when the respected speakers of Miracle Corners of the World (MCW) Young Leaders Retreat, Liz Graydon and Norma Loeb explained us about the topic. Miracle Corners of the World (MCW) Young Leaders Retreat is the annual...

After posting an article on “Gender Equality; Assumptions Vs Reality” based on the condition of women in the world as per the UN statistics, I am writing another article about gender equality not based on any statistics but on deep emotions after hearing that even the president of Nepal had to suffer gender inequality for being a woman, actually “widow woman”. On 16th December, only 6 days after the “16 days of Activism against Gender based Violence” ended, the first woman Presid...

It was a very good initiative to promote the gender equality in the world but after I studied the UN statistics on women and girls released this year, I was perplexed if “Gender Equality” is an ideal concept. Let...

The whole world today is facing those bangs and inhumanity in one way or the other. And the recent condition of Nepal, the dreadful condition of economic blockade by India, is an inhumane Act as well. Due to lack of fuel, vehicles have stopped running and the world can imagine the con...
