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?

19 October 2007 "Happy Vijaya Dashami 2064 "

October 20, 2007 Leave a comment


It was cold, chilly night in the center of Lappeeranata University of Technology., Me,Ananata,Jhamak,Bishal met in my room, We decided to do some party., We were not sure of the venue, then we thought about our friend Bala who was sick, we wanted to see him.

We realized that one guy was missing, it was not difficult for us to figure out who it was, probably we are just 6 nepali guys here in finland. It was Sijan. so, we asked him to come to bala’s palce, we went there we saw Bala was dancing, celebrating and was really in jolly mood. We were suprised by what we saw. Later He said that, Today is Vijaya Dashami 2064 Let us Celebrate ! We thought why not, We must celebrate !

The celebration started. Now we were 6+2 guys., Probably don’t be surprised the two guys were our special guest. One guy was Bala’s flat mate., From Finland- Teemu and The next guy was Bishal’s very good friend- From Pakistan-Mubin….

Guys started preparing the food,chicken….Pulaau..,

We wanted a Nepali way and the Nepali way was given by me., I was talking with Teemu,Mubin and Jhamak- We started a discussion, a round table discussion. It all started with religion,sex,what’s on man’s mind ?, what is on women’s mind ? Then it heated up… The talked went on and on…

It now came to GOD.,nobody agreed with what i have to say, because i wanted to put what i mean to say to these guys and they do not agree with me.. I still say that why are we following the tradition ? Why is there difference in culture,country and religion ? Every discussion was ending with big question-Why ? My dear pakistani friend was not happy with this question.

I was just alone defending myself, I wanted to say that-“All religion in this world connects to these keywords such as TRUTH,PEACE FOR MAN KIND …..” These were done by some great human in the past such as GAUTAM BUDDHA,JESUS CHRIST,MOHAMMAD etc., These great people were Human First and they will always remain human to me. We are treating them as god but why ?

We do this because we are following the tradion. Our parents taught this and we are following. But I want to say,

NEVER REPEAT ANYTHING THAT YOU HAVE NOT EXPERIENCEd IN YOUR LIFE

still people will not understand me… because i am defending myself and no one will be on my side. every body wants to get a safe landing, anyways…, I do not know … Probably i thought i was ruining the disucssion so i kept quite after that.

Guys prepared a great DASHAIN dinner it was the best dinner i had it here in Finland since months. We all enjoyed a fine Nepali Dinner !!!

All the cleaning was done by my beloved guys except me…. because i am lazy !!!

This way we celebrated a great dashain festival… Thanks to all my lovely,sweet and great nepali guys. You guys are great !!! Cheers Finlandia Vodka to you all !!!

Remeber guys, I am lazy and i will be lazy… One thing you all have to do is try to improve my habit and I wont be lazy anymore.

Thanks to our special guests ! Mubeen and Teemu !!!

HAPPY VIJAYA DASHAMI 2064 TO ALL NEPALI WHO IS LEAVING ABROAD AND MISSING THERE HOME LAND. CHEERS TO YOU ALL !!! AND TO ALL NEPALI GUYS, I HOPE ALL OF YOU DREAMS, AIMS,GOALS COME TRUE ONEDAY AND PROBABLY ONE DAY WE SEE A NEW NEPAL !!!
