Build ’Em and They’ll Come

October 13, 2010 Leave a comment

One comment was made for an article entitled, “Build ’Em and They’ll Come” at Nytimes.

Dear Sir,
Well, it does not matter weather it is million or billion what matters is spending. Especially in terms of research and innovation. Many Asian giants such as Singapore, Japan, Korea among others have spent hefty amount of money for research and they are still doing so. If there is no money in the research, you are bound to get no results or not so good results. The fact that entire world is running for “energy or green energy” is quite understandable since we lack them. However, by spending only on one sector cannot solve the problem. The spending should be proper and vigilant. The decisions of spending should be accountable dime by dime. Otherwise, there is no rhyme(innovation) coming from anywhere to anyplace.
Thank you !

Animal CRUELTY

October 13, 2010 Leave a comment

Alexandra Delaney’s concern with animal rights and mass killings of buffaloes and goats during Dashain is legitimate and I understand how these acts could upset a true vegetarian (“Seeing red,” Oct. 12, Page 7). However, I do not agree with her statement about Nepal being “superstitious”.

Every country has a cultural legacy and religious practices for reasons that I don’t believe fall under the category of superstition, something that a religious scholar should understand. Her concluding quote of Ghandi—“every country can be judged based on how women and animals are treated”—also includes countries in the West where there are thousands of animals killed every day, often inhumanely. Why do only developing nations have to be picked for censure?

The Latest Crisis

October 13, 2010 Leave a comment

In response to article entitled, “The Latest Crisis” this is my comments for it–

Dear Editor,

Please forgive my curiosity and concern. I am very much skeptical on asking question concerning, “why?”. All this is being done to capture “one man” and defeat “terrorism”. This is really good case where good guys are chasing the bad guys. To ordinary public like us, it is very doubtful question who is the good guy and who remains the bad guy. After hearing many conspiracy theories it raise little concern. However, all those spending and so called “crisis” are looking hazy and cozy.

Good luck !

• You are not royal by blood, you are royal by thoughts.

• There are no words which cannot rhyme. No sorrows have crime. Let her soul twinkle and accept whatever passes in her time.

• All our ideas are absurd.

• I am going long way and I know you don’t know which ways.

• Nothing can exist without conflict. If you’re present time is without conflict, your future will be with conflict and vice versa.

• If nothing happens in life, then the time is slowly coming to an end.

• A true definition of man is not how many years he lives but how many experiences he seeds.

• In three words, I will tell you where to find true happiness. “IT’s NOT HERE.

Death Show

October 10, 2010 Leave a comment

He was dead. Undoubtedly, a prolific writer, poet, and unsuccessful engineer, is being buried today in the graveyard near the mountain cliff of Santana. A large crowd in hundreds gathered to pay him homage. A media guy asks people about the dead man.

“A very generous character and very witty,” said a young man. “He was good novelist and his books have touched the hearts and minds of millions of people,” said a young man.

“Why are you saying those things to media they already know much about him, you should better speak about his character, not only about quantity of books that he sold,” said an old man.

“Who cares what I speak and how I speak, I don’t give a shit about that dead man anymore,” said a young man.
A media guy has to censor such violent words so he moved on to another lady. A media guy asks, “In your opinion, what do you think about this dead man?”

“I don’t think, I feel pain,” she said.

“Why is that?”

“Someday, I will also die and there will be no one who will telecast my death show.”

Happy Dashain
