Volunteering will give you much satisfaction : Prajwal Baral

United Nations को कार्यक्रम United Nations Volunteers (UNV) बाट नेपाली विद्यार्थी प्रज्वल बराल ले "Online Volunteering Award 2009" जितेका छन् । गएको शुक्रबार UNV ले Online Volunteering Award 2009 को घोषणा गरेको हो । UNV का अनुसार शान्ति र विकास का लागि अनलाइन भोलियन्टियरिङ गर्ने उत्कृष्ट भोलियन्टियरहरुलाई यो अवार्ड प्रदान गरिएको हो ।

यस विषयमा गएको डिसेम्बर ५ को अनलाइन संस्करण मा ईकान्तिपुर लेख्छ: Online volunteer Prajwal Baral attracted people to run in the Sunfeast World 10K Bangalore Marathon 2009, to raise funds for the Indian NGO New Life. It said that Baral helped New Life raise awareness and a considerable amount of new funds for its projects such as medical assistance to children with disabilities and early learning centres for the children of vulnerable groups coordinating an effective internet marketing campaign.

यसै मेसो मा United Nations Volunteers (UNV) को 'Online Volunteering Award 2009' जित्न सफल पहिलो नेपाली प्रज्वल बराल सँग हामी ले ईमेल अन्तरवार्ता गरेका थियौँ । प्रस्तुत छ, प्रज्वल सँग गरिएको अन्तरवार्ता:

1.) How did you feel, when you knew that you have been awarded 'Online Volunteering Award 2009'?
I was just back from my dinner when I saw an email from United Nations,saying "We are very pleased to inform you that you have been selected as one of the winners of the UNV Online Volunteering Award 2009!". I was so happy that I began dancing with delight.Later when I came to know that I was the 1st Nepalese to get United Nations Online Volunteering Award,I just went on calling and informing my friends and relatives till I was depleted with my mobile balance.

2.) How did you enrol in this volunteering program?
Actually, what happens is "Organisations from all over the world post their tasks in the United Nations Online Volunteering website and we need to apply for the particular opportunity which interests us". I found the task of promotion and fundraising for the Indian NGO-New Life quite challenging and applied for it.Luckily,I got selected and I was made co-ordinator for that task.25 volunteers were under me and I had to guide all of them. Our team was very succesful in raising the funds.

3.) Had you ever dreamed about this award? Were you confident/sure?
No.Never. I had not even started this volunteering task dreaming of the award.I just found the task of Indian NGO-New Life challenging and applied for it to gain some knowledge in this field. But the NGO director was so impressed with my skills that he nominated me for the award.Literally,I was shocked with surprise when I got the email mentioning I got the award along with others.

4.) What is your idea about Online Volunteering ? (Your experience about Volunteering.)
Whenever you are free and have nothing else to do, you can do online volunteering.It is an excellent tool to improve your skills and serve the society sitting in a room.So,according to me,online volunteering gives you as much satisfaction as the field work does.Online volunteering is no less valuable than field volunteering and other social works. Just imagine,you are helping the disadvantaged parts of the society by just sitting in front of your computer.Just gear up and start it.It is all I want to say.

5.) What are you doing right now ?
I am doing B.Tech in Electronics and Communication at Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology,Madhya Pradesh,India under the scholarship provided by Govt. of India. I have recently completed my 5th semester.So,I have 1.5 years more to become an engineer.

6.) Anything you want to say?
I just want to say that online volunteering will give you much satisfaction in your life because you will be indirectly helping the marginalised sectors of the society.So,just start it.

वनेपा मा बाढि

गएराती देखि बिहान अबेर सम्म लगातार पानी परिरह्‍यो । खडेरी लागेको र गर्मी बढेका कारण पनि धेरै पछि परेको पानीले धेरैलाई आड भरोसा दिएको छ । पर्दा फिटिक्कै नपर्ने अनि पर्दा अत्याधिक पर्ने भएका कारण आज केही ठाउँको जनजिवन प्रभावित रहे । काठमाडौँ मा त थुप्रिएको फोहोर अनि त्यस माथि परेको पानी का कारण सडक मा हिँडिनसक्नु भएको छ । त्यस्तै मनोहरा खोला किनारा मा बसोबास गर्ने सुकुम्बासीहरुलाई पनि बाढि ले प्रभावित गरेको छ । यसैगरि भक्तपुर को ठिमी क्षेत्रमा पनि हनुमन्ते खोला मा आएको बाढिका कारण जनजिवन अस्तव्यस्त बनेको छ । बाढि घरभित्र पसेको छ, अनि रोड बाट पनि बाढि बगेको छ । हिम इलेक्ट्रोनिक्स, श्रद्धा नर्सिङ क्याम्पस, सा:ख टोरस्टिल को डिपो, श्यामा श्यामा धाम जलमग्न देखिन्थे । त्यस्तै वनेपा को पश्चिमी छेउ मा रहेको पुण्यमति खोला मा बाढि आएका कारण दिउँसो केही घन्टा सडक अबरुद्ध भएको थियो । खोला बाट बग्नुपर्ने पानी सडक बाट नै बग्न थालेपछि, यातायात आवागमन ठप्प बनेको थियो । पछि बेलुका ४ बजे तिर देखि एक एक ओटा गर्दै पालै पालो गाडिहरु पास गराइएको थियो । बाढि प्रभावित क्षेत्रमा उल्लेख्य मात्रामा प्रहरी परिचालन

हामी मरेपछि हाम्रो फेसबुक प्रोफाइल के हुन्छ ?

फेसबुक आफैँमा व्यापक सञ्जाल । हामी फेसबुक विना त अधुरो नै हुन्छौँ जस्तो लाग्छ हिजोआज । तर यसो सोच्नुहोस् त हामी मरेपछि हाम्रो फेसबुक प्रोफाइल के हुन्छ होला ? फेसबुक का सुरक्षा प्रमुख म्याक्स केली ले २६ अक्टोबर २००९ मा ब्लग मार्फत मृत्यु भएका व्यक्तिहरु को फेसबुक को प्रोफाइललाई सर्च को नतिजा मा नदेखाइने जनाएकाछन् । फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ता को मृत्यु पछि, उक्त व्यक्ति को प्रोफाइललाई सिल गरिने अनि सर्च को नतिजामा नदेखाउने बताएकाछन् । तर मृत्यु भएको व्यक्ति प्रति सम्मान का शब्द लेख्न या आफ्नो श्रद्धा व्यक्त गर्न उक्त व्यक्ति को प्रोफाइल को वाल भने, आफ्ना आफन्त अनि साथिहरु को लागि सँधै खुल्ला राखिने जनाइएको छ । अक्टोबर २३ मा फेसबुक नयाँ डिजाइनमा आएपछि, फेसबुक ले यस्तो कुरा सार्वजनिक गरेको हो । फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ताहरु ले फेसबुक को नयाँ ‘सजेसन’ र ‘रिकनेक्ट’ भन्ने सुविधा का कारण समस्या सिर्जना भएको बताउँदै, ब्लग र ट्विटर मा आफ्ना गुनासाहरु लेखेपछि फेसबुक ले, यो नयाँ निति अगाडि ल्याएको हो । फेसबुक ले मृत्यु भइसकेका व्यक्तिहरु को प्रोफाइल देखाउँदै साथि बनाउन ‘सजेसन’ दिन थालेपछि, समस्या सिर्जना भए

प्रविधिले चुसेको मेरो स्मरणशक्ति [Google Knows Everything]

आजभोलि मानिसले सानो सानो कुरा बिर्सन थालेका छन्। जो कसैलाई पनि आजभोलि केहि कुरा सोध्नु बेकार जस्तो हुन्छ। तपाईहरुले दैनिक जीवनमा जो कुनै ब्यक्ति कम्युटरको नजिक धेरै समय बिताएको हुन्छ, उसलाई केहि कुरा सोध्नु भएको खण्डमा उसले त्यसको सहि जवाफ दिनुको साटो त्यसको जवाफ कहाँ छ र कहाँ गएर हेर्नु पर्छ भनेर भन्ने गर्छ। मानिसहरु आजको दिनमा प्रविधिसँग यति बिधि नजिक भइसकेका छन कि त्यो प्रविधि बिना तिनिहरुको जीवन अपुरो जस्तो भइसकेको छ। पहिला जब प्रबिधि सबैको पहुँचको विषय थिएन त्यो बेला मानिसहरु विहान उठेर नित्यकर्म गर्न तिर लाग्थे तर आजभोलि मानिसको दिनचर्यानै बदलि दिएको छ यो प्रविधि भन्ने जातले। तर मैले मानिसको दिनचर्या भन्दा पनि स्मरणशक्तिको कुरा गर्दै छु। प्रविधिले गर्दा कसरि मानिसको स्मरणशक्तिमा अतुलनिय ह्रास हुदै गएको छ भन्ने कुराको लागि अब वैज्ञानिक तथ्याङ्क भन्दा पनि आफुले दैनिक जिवनमा गर्ने कुराहरुले नै बताउने गर्दछ। सबै भन्दा पहिले कुरा गरौँ सबैले सधैजसो प्रयोग गर्ने मोबाईल फोनको। पहिला मानिसले सबैको फोन नम्बर याद गर्नु पर्त्थो या कुनै डायरिमा टिपोट गरेर राख्न पर्थ्यो। तर आजभोलि हात हातम

नेपाली टाइप गर्ने सजिलो तरिका

मदन पुरस्कार पुस्तकालयले  २००७  २००३-४ ताका नेपाली युनिकोड किबोर्ड लेआउट, रोमनाइज्ड र ट्रेडिसनल सार्वजनिक गर्यो । नेपाली टाइपिङ (ट्रेडिसनल) जान्दै नजान्ने (कहिले नेपाली टाइप नगरेको) मैले, मदन पुरस्कार पुस्तकालयले सार्वजनिक गरेको रोमनाइज्ड नेपाली युनिकोड किबोर्ड लेआउट कम्प्युटरमा राखेर पहिलो पटक कम्प्युटरमा नेपाली भाषामा लेखेँ । यसविचमा कम्प्युटर तथा मोबाइलको लागि धेरै किसिमका नेपाली किबोर्ड लेआउट तथा एप्सहरु आइसकेकाछन्, तर पनि इन्टरनेट प्रयोगकर्ताहरु नेपाली टाइप गर्नुपर्दा अप्ठ्यारो मान्छन् । मलाई धेरैले सोध्ने गरेको प्रश्न भनेको, "फेसबुकमा कसरी नेपाली टाइप गर्ने?" अत: यो ब्लगमा मदन पुरस्कार पुस्तकालय (मपुपु) ले निर्माण गरेको नेपाली युनिकोड किबोर्ड लेआउट बारे चर्चा गर्दैछु। प्रिती, कान्तिपुर लगायतका 'ट्रु टाइप फन्ट' (ttf) प्रयोग गरेर ट्रेडिसनल लेआउटमा नेपाली टाइप गर्ने प्रयोगकर्ताहरुले, नेपाली ट्रेडिसनल युनिकोड किबोर्ड लेआउट राखेर, इन्टरनेटमा सजिलै सँग नेपालीमा लेख्न सक्छन् । भन्नुको मतलब, तपाईलाई पहिले नै नेपाली टाइपिङ आउँछ भने टाइपिङ गर्ने तरिका उही हुन्छ, उही &q
