Well, this is my experience with the Mercon Program, that's a charity event. This event really taught me how I should not waste money and time. There are so many unlucky children, they can't go to school, they can't eat 3 times in a day, and they can't buy everything they really need. But, the what I appreciate most about this event is when you've got the happiest feeling when you can help others who are in need. This charity event was held on 15 July - 3 August 2013. We collec...

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.

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...

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

This is part 2 of an interview with environmental activist Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez. Read part 1 here. And what are some of the things that the branches of Earth Guardians do?

It really depends on where you are on the globe. Our group in Africa, they have about 50 kids t...
