Nepali Student Lujendra Ojha Spots Possible Water on Mars

Lujendra Ojha, a 21 year old space scientist originally from Kathmandu, Nepal has spotted signs of possible saltwater flow on Mars. Discovery was announced at NASA, the space agency’s headquarters in Washington on 4th August.

Ojha’s recently published study in the Science journal suggests that there is liquid water during warmer seasons on Mars. “Ojha hasn't cracked those mysteries yet, but he did discover something else otherworldly: possible flows of saltwater on Mars”, reports CNN.

Nepali Student Lujendra Ojha Spotted Possible Water on MarsThe Mars discovery was an independent project of Lujendra Ojha. An undergraduate interne Ojha has done this research under the supervision of Professor Alfred McEwen, a lead co-author of the Science journal, in collaboration with University of Arizona researcher Colin Dundas.

"When I first saw them, I had no idea what it was. I just thought it was a streak made by dust or something similar. It was a lucky accident”, he said reports CNN. “The source of this water could be below the surface, but that has yet to be determined”, Ojha said.

Ojha had found the first evidence of finger-like features on the slope of the crater that could be liquid briny water on Mars”, said Scientists at NASA.

"There's going to be years of research put into this to even prove that this is definitely a proof of water. And from that, we can move on: OK if this is water, what are the chances that life could be in these kinds of surroundings?" he said.

We are proud of you Lujendra. Keep it up!

कुरा आइटि पार्क को

अहिले को युग के को हो भनेर प्रश्न गरियो भने, सबैले दिने जवाफ एउटै हुन्छ । यो सुचना प्रविधि, कम्प्युटर प्रविधिको युग हो । अनि यही सुचना प्रविधि तथा कम्प्युटर प्रविधिलाई लक्ष्य गरेर नेपाल मा पनि आइटि पार्क को स्थापना गरियो । काभ्रे जिल्लामा आइटि पार्क त बन्यो तर यो अहिले एकदमै प्रयोगविहिन अवस्थामा रहेको छ । सायद IT Park पनि एक दिन त सञ्चालन मा आउँला भनेर, दिन कुरेर बसिरहेको जस्तो आभाष मिल्छ । करिब ३०० रोपनी मा फैलिएको, अत्यन्तै रमणिय स्थलमा रहेको सम्पुर्ण सुविधायुक्त आइटि पार्क प्रयोग विहिन अवस्थामा छ । सायद यस्तो दयनिय स्थिति देखेर होला, अहिले हाम्रा विज्ञान तथा प्रविधी मन्त्री गणेश साह जुर्मुराएका छन् । हाम्रो कृषी युग थियो, अब को युग कम्प्युटर को युग हो भन्ने बुझेका मन्त्री गणेश साह आइटि पार्क चलाउनै पर्छ भन्ने मान्यता राख्छन् । यसैको सुरुवाती कदम स्वरुप आज, वनेपाको आइटि पार्कमा एउटा सानो भलाकुसारी को कार्यक्रम राखिएको थियो । काठमाडौँ मा बसेर गफ हाँक्दैमा र आइटि पार्क को गफ दिँदैमा केही उपलब्धि हुँदैन भनेर नै यो कार्यक्रम आइटिपार्क मा नै गर्नुपरेको कुरा मन्त्रि साह ले प्रस्ट्याउनु भय

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 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..

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.
