सामाजिक सञ्जालमा सुरक्षित रहने तरिका

सामाजिक सञ्जाल चलाउने पनि आफ्नै तौरतरिका छन्, जसलाई नजरअन्दाज गरिँदा सामाजिक सञ्जालले समस्या सिर्जना गरिरहेका पनि छन् । सामाजिक सञ्जालका प्रयोगकर्ता एक करोडभन्दा धेरै रहेको देशमा छिटपुट घटनालाई लिएर पूरै सामाजिक सञ्जाल नै असामाजिक छ भन्न मिल्दैन । मूलधारका मिडिया रेडियो, पत्रिका, टेलिभिजनजस्तो सामाजिक सञ्जाल एकोहोरो छैन । सामाजिक सञ्जालको बनोट नै फरक छ, यो दोहोरो हुन्छ । दोहोरो हुनेबित्तिकै उठान गरिएका विषयमा केही घर्षण हुनु, वादविवाद हुनु, तर्कवितर्क हुनु, केही तलमाथिका कुरा हुनु एकदम सामान्य हो । प्रयोगकर्ताले सामाजिक सञ्जालको बनोट बुझ्ने वा यस्ता प्लेटफर्मका फिचरको सदुपयोग गर्ने हो भने यी कुरा अत्यन्तै सामान्य लाग्छन् । सबै कुरा प्रविधिले समाधान गर्न सम्भव छैन, तर सामाजिक सञ्जालमा देखिने, भोगिने प्रायः कुरा भने प्रविधिबाटै समाधान गर्न सक्ने अवस्था छ । सामाजिक सञ्जाल तथा इन्टरनेट प्रयोगकर्ताले अरूलाई दोष लगाउनुपहिले आफ्नो थैलो बलियोसँग कसौँ भन्ने कुरा मनन गर्न जरुरी छ । मोबाइलमा मात्रै इन्टरनेट चलाउने अधिकांश प्रयोगकर्ताका लागि अहिले फेसबुक र भाइबर भनेकै इन्टरनेट हो भन्ने भ्रम 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 pai
