Hello! I am so sorry as I have been absent from VOY for a month. This being due to very hard times right now. I needed to gather myself in order to do my best and I'm back and ready. Due to all the things going on right now I've learned many things. The main one is that you can't fight pain with pain. We've all gone through many hard things, maybe many of you are in my situation in which you life has turned upside down. Life is a world of pain for everybody "...

This week, a topic seemed to engross me. It wasn’t particularly triggered by something but instead it is a question I ask myself often ,and ever since I began to understand a little bit my situation or my world. And I’m speaking about old and new, about modernization and consistency, about values and wisdom. I’m asking myself: “How good are these changes?” “Would it be better to try to maintain this world?” Like it often happens, the answer is that we should fin...

Happy International Day of the Girl VOY fam! I look forward to a world where every youth consciously stands up for the girl child in some way. It is important to know that development impact can easily be multiplied by improving the livelihood of the girls and women in our communities. This is because girls and women have the ability to stimulate positive multiplier effects and have shown great potential to affect even more women and children. There is at least one thing you...

In a set of latest findings, TIME says that China will take over the USA as the world’s largest economy in 2019. Evidence to support this prediction can be seen all over the world if you look closely - Chinese Internet giant Alibaba claimed the distinction of having to its name the world’s largest IPO (Initial Public Offering) less than a month back, while wealthy Chinese are buying age old family owned Wine businesses in France. 17% of USA’s debt is owned by China, and almos...

I am usually careful about what movie I should spend time seeing because I do not want to feel that I wasted my time when the movie ends. So when a friend gave me the movie, “Unconditional,” I waited a long time before I finally made the move, but it sure was no waste of time! This past week I ran into the movie on television and got the chance to really think about what message it passes across. The film is based on the true life story of Joe Bradford, who grew up in rural...

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. It is celebrated for victory of god Ram over demon Ravana. 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,...

I have never enjoyed reading much, probably because when education has a mistaken approach (as it is both in Colombia and in Chile) grades are more important than learning, and reading is everything but pedagogical or enriching. However one day it all changed when I found a webpage that shared classic books from top writers all over the world. In fact I read Animal Farm in 2 full days; Love in a Time of Cholera in 3 nights and the Metamorphosis in probably a day. I can’t ev...

I've always believed and advocated that power lies with the people, that is the majority rather the few at the top. This is based on the rationale that it is the majority that votes to put someone in a that position and therefore can vote to take them out. The power is with the people. I wonder if the same can apply in the consumer world. The consumer world works on supply and demand. Methane is as lethal or more lethal than carbon dioxide emission. One of the greatest emitte...
