Football fever - have you caught it?

The interesting thing about getting crazy over something is you put everything aside and focus on something that you love the most. The same is with me and my addiction towards football. And ever since the FIFA World Cup 2010 has began, I seem to care about nothing else than football. As an engineering student, I should be concentrating on my studies with assignments, internals and projects. Yet, I seem to give my priority to football. This is a strange feeling that I cannot ignore.

Not only me, everyone is suffering from this disease. We call this “A Football Fever”. This is a disease that no doctor in the world can cure. And whether you are at work or studies or doing nothing at all, the craze of this World Cup will hunt you down and make you tune on your television and make you wave a flag. So unless you have been hiding in a cave somewhere you cannot ignore the fantasy and excitement that this FIFA World Cup 2010 brings.

The World Cup fever has gripped lots of people in many ways. The youngsters literally view football as their second religion and are willing to sacrifice anything for this. People are thronged to shopping malls to buy international kits. Also football has been a commercial market now. Several companies have been launching their products with a World Cup offer. There are even advertisements based on Football. Also several groups have set up the big screens on several places, so that a huge mass can celebrate the FIFA WORLD CUP 2010 together. There is a common theme in people “Play football, eat football, drink football, sleep football”.

Then there comes the side effects: The sleepless nights (insomnia), the lazy and a tired day and no interest in anything besides Football. But whatever the side effects are, we all love football in the end and no one can do anything about it. So keep waving your flag people.

वान्नाक्राइ र्‍यान्समवेयर : नेपालमा पारेको प्रभाव र जोगिने उपाय

अघिल्लो हप्ता 'वान्नाक्राइ र्‍यान्समवेयर'ले १५० देशका २ लाख ३० हजार भन्दा धेरै कम्प्युटरमा एकैसाथ आक्रमण गरेर सन्सनी मच्चायो । वान्नाक्राइ र्‍यान्समवेयर एक किसिमको कम्प्युटर भाइरस हो, जसले तपाईको कम्प्युटरको डाटालाई नियन्त्रणमा लिन्छ (या भनौँ अपहरण गर्छ) र त्यसवापत फिरौती माग गर्छ । प्रयोगकर्ताले फिरौती रकम नतिरेसम्म, कम्प्युटरका डाटाहरु प्रयोग गर्नबाट रोक्छ । मेरो कम्प्युटर अरुको नियन्त्रणमा कसरी होला? मेरो आफ्नै कम्प्युटरमा रहेको डाटा प्रयोग गर्न नसक्ने पनि होला र? भनेर प्रयोगकर्तालाई जिज्ञासा लाग्नु सामान्य हो ।

Shruti Sambeg : Download तरुनी खेती

Listen to Full Episode of Taruni Kheti.

आज को श्रुति संवेग को यो अंक मा  हामी  ‘सरुभक्त’ को उपन्यास ‘तरुनी खेती’ को सबै अंक लिएर आएका छौँ।


विषयवस्तु परिचित भएपनि, प्रस्तुतिकरण नितान्त फरक रहेको छ । महिला अनि पुरुष, को सामाजिक स्थितिलाई लेखिएर लेखिएको उपन्यास मा, ‘महिला’लाई यौनिक रुप ले हेरिएको छ ।

सरल कुरा तर जटिल प्रस्तुती लाग्ने हुँदा, सुरु मा उपन्यास ले के भन्न खोजिरहेको भन्ने कुरा बुझ्न निकै गाह्रो पर्छ । नारीलाई खेत, पुरुषलाई किसान, यस्तै यस्तै उपमा र बिम्ब बाट नारी र पुरुषलाई परिभाषित गरिएको छ ।

भुमिका मा सरुभक्तले भन्नुभएकोछ, “यसलाई पुरुषहरु ले गलत नबुझुन र नारीहरु ले बुझ्न इन्कार नगरुन्” ।

उज्यालो ९० नेटवर्क को लागि निर्माण गरिएको कार्यक्रम श्रुति संवेग मा सदाझैँ वाचन मा अच्युत घिमिरे हुनुहुन्छ भने प्रविधी मा दिनेश निरौला र शशिन्द्र गौतम रहनुभएको छ ।

Shirish Ko Phool : Review & Download

One of the finest book ever written in Nepali literature....Shirish Ko Phool and one of my personal favorite.

I have read this novel over four times or say five times..and each time I finish the novel I feel pang and it hangs on my head for so many days. Why guilt is so painful that made such a strong woman called Sakambari to suicide..or die…??

The novel has a wonderful language..the simplest of all. When I had read it for the first time..to tell the truth that I hadn’t really understood the novel, I felt the love story in it and I could not understand the passion in the novel.. But this day I may say I am able to figure out the passion and the feelings of the author..

I really appreciate the wonderful story, the plot the real setting, the real characters…and the situation of the novel till it ends. The pain of running away from the feelings and passion. When the Suyogbir says.."Ma glass ma bhagchu” ( I forgot the line exactly…). The feeling is that we run away from pain…because…
