Anil Chitrakar will talk about the need for Nepalis to unite against the political stalemate, urging them to transcend political boundaries. He will also talk about the power of social media in civic activism, drawing from his recent experience of having brought thousands of people together solely through the use of online social media.

Haushala Thapa will speak about the need for creative and innovative education, specially the underprivileged children. She will draw from her experience of having taught drawing, photography, and other creative arts to underprivileged children, with massively positive results, and explain how it can be widely emulated.

Kedar Sharma will talk about the pitfalls of unrestrained modernism, and how Nepal's rapidly evolving consumerist society could harm not only the Nepal, but also have far more widespread effects. He will argue for the need of a fusion of Nepali and modern values, for a sustainable social growth.

सोसल मिडिया मिथ्याङ्क?

मलाई हिजोआज सबैभन्दा धेरै सोधिने प्रश्न भनेको, 'नेपालमा कति फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ता छन्?' 'लगभग ८५ लाख' । फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ताको सङ्ख्या हेर्दा गज्जब छ । सबैजना अनलाइन छन् । आफ्ना साथीभाइ, आफन्तसँग जोडिन फेसबुक सबैका लागि सजिलो भएकोछ । टेलिकमहरुले सुरु गरेका थ्रिजी सेवा, नेपाली भाषामा प्रयोग गर्न सकिने स्मार्टफोन, तथा नेपाली भाषामा चलाउन मिल्ने फेसबुक एपको विकास सँगै, फेसबुक धेरैको पहुँचमा पुगेकोछ । नेपाल दूरसञ्चार प्राधिकरणको रिपोर्ट अनुसार, करिब डेढ करोड अहिले इन्टरनेटको पहुँचमा छन्, जुन नेपालको कूल जनसङ्ख्याको ५८ प्रतिशत हो ।


यी तथ्यांकहरु जति गज्जब देखिन्छन् । त्यही अनुपातमा यसको प्रभाव भने देखिन्न । फेसबुक, ट्विटर, युट्युब आदि विभिन्न सोसल मिडिया साइटका प्रयोगकर्ताहरु, मेरा लाखौँ, फलोअर/लाइक/सव्सक्राइबर छन् भनेर गर्वसाथ भनिरहेका हुन्छन् । कतिपय ठाउँमा उनीहरु आफ्नो परिचय नै यति हजार/लाख फलोअर छन् भनेर गराउँछन् । सङ्ख्या सुन्दा, 'आहा' भन्ने किसिमको छ । फलानाको यति लाइक/फलोअर पुग्यो भनेर त समाचार/ब्लग नै बन्छन् । कतिपय प्रयोगकर्ताहरु, 'यति धेरै फलोअर भएको मान्छ…

अमेरिकी छलाङ्ग

अघिल्लो वर्षको जनवरीमा लेखिएको "एउटा फेक ट्विटर एकाउन्टको नाममा" ब्लग वर्षैभरि अन्यन्तै चर्चित रह्यो । सायद यसैको प्रभाव हुनुपर्छ, अघिल्लो हप्ता ईमेलमा अमेरिकी बसाइ अनुभव संगालिएको बाबुरामजीको एउटा प्राइभेट 'अनलाइन जर्नल' (डायरी) आइपुग्यो। नियमित त हैन, तर कहिलेकाँही भने तिम्रो ब्लग हेर्छु भनेर लेखिएको थियो । त्यसै  'जर्नल'मा रहेको 'अमेरिकी छलाङ्ग'का केही सम्पादित अंशहरु तल प्रस्तुत गरेकोछु ।

म यसै बसिरहेको हुन्छु, फोनमा खेलिरहेको हुन्छु, घरी ट्विटर घरी फेसबुक घरी के चलाई रहेकोहुन्छु। यसैमा भान्सामा काम गरिरहेकी मेरी प्राण प्यारीको नजर म माथि पर्छ। अनी उनी भन्छिन, "यसै फोन चलाएर बस्नु भन्दा त बरु ईन्टरनेट खोलेर मेरो फोन र ईन्सुरेन्सको अटो पे'मा राखिदिनु नि, महिनै पिच्छे सम्झिदाँको टेन्सन त हुन्न मलाई" ! म एकदम ज्ञानी पति बनेर ल्यापटप खोल्छु। पासवर्ड हालेर विण्डोज खोलि सकेको हुदैन, मेरी प्राण प्यारी भान्साबाट मर्जी हुन्छिन । "कहिले काँहि त बुढिलाई भान्सामा सहयोग गरे नि हुने नि, कहिले फोन त कहिले ल्यापटप"।

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 ।
