Frankly speaking, I don’t like politics very much. However, being a youth and a responsible citizen of the nation, I listen to political news and discussions to understand the political situation of the country. Unfortunately, Nepal is presently facing severe political instability despite the fact that there should have been political stability in this phase, as we held the second election for drafting our constitution by 22 January 2015. The first constitutional assembly was not...

Due to unemployment in the country, the productive workforce of the country is choosing abroad as a destination, and leading to “Brain dra...

For me Muhammad Ali is right, he says, “The meaning of life is not simply to exist or to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer”. I always think with same attitude to make myself better person than before and help the people who are in need. What do we...
