The Voice of Third Generation

Have you ever given a thought to the fact that if you were not what you are today due to your qualification, where would you be? This is perhaps a recurring question for most of us. With me, it is always an alternate query hopping on my mind at times- “What if I was not provided with the opportunity of achieving a formal education?” and the response I get is- certainly not what I am today!
(He is certainly wondering about something!)


Admissibly true, I have been one of those lucky ones who were showered with utmost care and understanding of my parents that their girl is equally capable and deserves to be educated which is what, paved my path to a secure independent future. Nonetheless, another fact still pinches my heart that not everyone has had this basic but essential opportunity- there are still thousands of kids still on street or abandoned to survive on their own due direct or indirect harassment. Wouldn’t this world be a better place if every child was provided with education and care to excel in their respective skills? It sure would- and that is the dream of The Voice of Third Generation- to provide an assisting hand to help the deserving children get back to where their excellence would be justified and appreciated as the future of our country. And the school is where it all begins.

We take the undeniable pride in being a Nepali, but the other side of the coin is also true that there are still many more unexplored talents scattered all around the country. Like a diamond is refined and polished from the coalmine, we still need to find and refine our diamonds who are the future leaders of Nepal- the children. “Dai/Didi ek rupiya dinus na, dui din dekhi kehi khayeko chaina(Brother/Sister please give me a Rupee, I’ve been starving since two days)!” “Sir, jutta paalish garne ho? Talakka talaidinchu(Do you want your shoe polished-I’ll make it shine)!” “paanch rupiya ma char wata pen (buy 4 pens in 5 Rupees)” are all the pedestrian quotes we hear everyday in public places- sure they do irritate us; recall the times we have cursed them for being a Khate (street child)…they are all parts of our reality. But, have we ever given a thought that if these bright children were in school, how would their performances be? I bet they would outshine even in academics.


The Voice of Third Generation (VO3G) was conceived with regard to the future of our children- hundreds scattered around the containers with jute bags to be filled with trashed plastics, girls abused for sexual harassment and prostitution, many used to drug abuse and trade, numerous admitted as housemaids/servants etc. Is it written in their fate that they do not deserve to attend school? If so, who wrote their fate? They are parts of our lives, our future which is certainly being decelerated towards darkness. Thence, is it fair to blame the peon who gives unrelated medication to affected patients or to complain that a teacher in a government school is unqualified?

We have initiated with a very small step towards pursuing our dream. VO3G resolves to be actively involved and help those children be equally treated- beginning today till future. Try and step out of your comfort zones to see what it means to live life in the worst case scenarios and appreciate what you have. Let’s join our hands to help those children step up and build the future they deserve. VO3G wants your co-operation in this mission; would you step forward and help our future build a path towards advancement?

"हातमा हात ओठमा ओठ म आउँदैछु प्रिय म आउँदैछु प्रिय !..." भन्ने पंक्ति सँगै भिडियो सुरु हुन्छ । राजन कठेत को निर्देशन मा बनेको भिडियो निकै मजाले सलल बगेको छ । भिडियो अन्तिम सम्म नहरेसम्म यो के को लागि र कुन विषयमा बनेको भिडियो हो भन्न मुस्किल नै पर्छ । एउटा सन्देशमुलक कुरा भिन्नै कन्सेप्ट मा बनेको भएर पनि भिडियो निकै राम्रो लाग्छ । काठमाडौँ विश्वविद्यालय मिडिया स्टडिज का साथिहरुले बनाएको छोटो र मिठो भिडियो आज यहाँ राख्दैछु । भिडियोमा अभिनय रहेको छ पर्वत थापा को भने, क्यामरा मा छिरिङ र कविता वाचन मा रतन रहेकाछन् । भिडियोको बारेमा: A very short, both romantic and funny video(1 min. 25 secs.), made by KU students (2009) with Parbat Thapa (Electrical Engineering 4th/last year) in the scene....Poem narration by Ratan Aanad Karna, background score by Diwas Manandhar and Parbat Thapa, editing by Shekhar KC and Rajan Kathet, camera by Prem Tshering Sherpa and, scene selection, photography direction, script, concept and direction by Rajan Kathet.

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

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

नियात्रा : घान्द्रुक को घुमाइ -१

शैक्षिक अध्ययन/ भ्रमण जान नपाएको धुनमा हामी एकपटक विद्यार्थीहरुकै पहलमा चिसापानी पुगिसकेका छौं। सुन्दरीजलबाट एकदिनको पदयात्रामा चिसापानी पुग्न सकिन्छ। सन् २००९ अक्टोबरको महिना। जहिले पनि शैक्षिक अध्ययन/ भ्रमणमा नलगिएको वा घुम्न नपाएको पिडाले मन भरिरहने हामी विद्यार्थीहरुलाई फेरी एकपटक घुम्नजान मन लाग्न थाल्यो। घुम्न मन लाग्यो भनौं कि पढ्न मन लागेन भनौं?... जे बुझेपनि हुन्छ। जता गएपनि सत्य तपाईंकै बटोमा हिँडेको हुनेछ। घुम्न त जाने, तर कहाँ? प्रेम छिरिङग् शेर्पाको दिमाग यहाँनेर हामी सबैको भन्दा छिटो चल्छ, जहिलेपनि। फेरी अच्चमको कुरा के भने नि- नेपालमा अधिकांश ‘घुम्ने’ ठाउँ कि त प्रेम छिरिङग् पुगिसकेको छ कि त उसका साथीहरु। निकै नै रसिक छन् हाम्रा साथी प्रेम छिरिङग् शेर्पा। हामी अधिकांश छात्रहरुलाई भक्तपुरको छ्याङग्शाला, काठमाडौंको टुकुचे भान्छा घर आदी देखाउने श्रेय यीनैलाई जान्छ। यो श्रेय कम्तिमापनि म, उसलाई कृतज्ञताका साथ दिन चाहान्छु। अघिल्लो पल्ट गएको चिसापानि पदयात्रा पनि प्रेम छिरिङग् कै सक्रियतामा संम्भव भएको थियो। त्यसैले यसपटकको यात्राको निणर्य गर्ने जिम्मा पनि प्रेम र गौरबलाई
