I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men. They are far superior and always have been. Whatever you give a woman, she will make it greater. If you give her sperm, she will give you a baby. If you give her a house, she will give you a home. If you give her groceries, she will give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she will give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be …ready to receive a ton of shit!”
- William Golding
Happy International Women's Day😊😊💐💐

International Women's Day is celebrated across the world on March 8. It is a global day that celebrates social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a "call to action" to increase gender equality. Historically,  International Women's Day first emerged from the activities of labor movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe. The celebrations continue to grow from strength to strength every year and various programs are organized at local and international level to mark  International Women's Day.

Daughter its late to get married now



Sweetie your age is almost gone
You need to get married now, its quit late
whenever season of marriage comes, my heart beats faster
when someone talks of marriage, my heart  beats faster
when friends in my town get married
then my parents get worried and say
sweetie you are getting older
it’s getting late.

as if human existence is only to get married
as if one will get world after getting married
they say few years of marriage life is fun
but later it becomes like cage, though it’s made up of gold
when i hear of these stories, i get worried
in spite of that mom dad repeat same thing
sweetie you are getting older
its getting late.

when daughter gets twenty whole family and relatives rush
and say, every year marriage proposals will come less
after twenty five you will get no proposals at all
you will not get chance to choose among many
people seek for youth for marriage
i think of all these and murmur
is there any value of good heart, innocence, and humanity?

and a voice comes
daughter your age is almost gone
your little sister too is getting older
and its getting late !!

mom dad provided school and university education whole life with patience and hard work
when study is in the verse of completion
all relatives get interested and ask
oh your study is completing now
you are getting older

they bring offers of boys from USA, Australia
or of some government servant
I also have dream to serve my parents, after study
as a daughter i want to help them
want to pay them back from my side for their lifetime support
but once i am able to do something all are ready to get me married
they want to send me to some unknown home with unknown man
no one wants to hear my voice
all say same old utterance
sweetie you are getting older
you wanted to study and you did it
now its getting late

sometimes i become jealous of all those boys
who get opportunity to stay with their parents for whole life
always get opportunity to be around parents
they get opportunity to pay off the debts of parents
i get scared and again and again with these thoughts

i have to choose my life partner by seeing pic of Facebook profile
by seeing job and prosperity i need to choose my husband

alas it would be nice to choose someone by seeing his heart
I have seen many who choose their life partner by seeing FB profile and are crying lifelong
and i have seen those relatives response on that
its late baby, now you are already married, now this is you fate
now live your life cry and make yourself feel calm
now you are done
its quit late

may be i wouldn't be this much negative about marriage
if i have seen all married couple happy ever after
if there is any prince charming for me in my life
i also have little beautiful and cute
desires and dreams
dream of flying like a free bird
only one part of life, study is completed
world of dream is yet to be explored
many steps of passion are yet to be touched
therefore i feel like nothing has gone
so many horizons are yet to be climbed
may be so called marrying age is going
the spirit of living life of passion has not gone yet.

Happy New Year Post



Hey pretty hearts,
          After the sweet completion of the year 2018 now we are entering into the world of 2019, this is the new sunrise, new beginning, new ray of hope which is welcoming us directing us toward a new year, I hope this year will be the most beautiful and memorable year for all of us, let’s create some wonderful memories that we’ll enthusiastically long to share at the end of 2019.
          2018 for me was quite a beneficial year; I started my blogging career in the month of October which helped me enhancing my creativity with photography and writing which I’m continuing and will continue in the years to come. I wish u all a very Happy New Year. Celebrate each and every moment of it, make yourself feel alive, and with this new beginning, let’s make a commitment that we’ll save or protect the nature, our mother earth.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you
I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world

Here I end up my first post of 2019 with a wonderful poem by Louis Daniel Armstrong.

A Call To Promote Touristic Destination in Nepal


A Call To Promote Touristic Destinations in Nepal


Nepal, a land of wonder, a land of holy spirit, a land full of natural beauty and bliss can be the center of attraction for tourism. Tourism can pave the way for the economic development in Nepal. Yes, many tourists come to visit in present days too but there is high possibility to increase the number by promoting touristic destination. Tourism not only helps to build the economy stronger but it also helps to share our cultural values all around the world. We always say that our country is poor than the others but never try to see the scopes which can build the economic strength. People in this modern era are fed up with luxurious lives and materiality and they now want to be in peace and nature and Nepal carries the higher possibility due to its natural beauty. 

        Possessing eight of the ten highest mountains in the world, Nepal is a hotspot destination for mountaineers, rock climbers and people seeking adventure. The Hindu and Buddhist heritage of Nepal are also strong attractions. According to Nepal's Ministry of Tourism, major tourist activities include wilderness and adventure activities such as mountain biking, bungee jumping, rock climbing and mountain climbing, trekking, hiking, bird watching, flights, paragliding and hot air ballooning over the mountains of Himalaya, exploring the waterways by raft, kayak or canoe and jungle safaris especially in the Teri region. adventure seekers. Apart from being an attractive destination for adventure, Nepal’s pleasant climate and ever welcoming nature of Nepalese show there is a tremendous prospect of tourism ahead in Nepal.
            If we look around us, just before some years Singapore had its identity as a colonized zone. But when the leadership changed entire history of Singapore has changed. Today it is the most exotic touristic zone not because of its natural beauty but it offers many artificial venture. Switzerland too have similar story. Therefore, what we Nepalese must understand is that We are so fortunate that mother nature has blessed us with the glory of nature, and Nepalese people are famous for our brotherhood, peaceful behavior, and ever smiling face; so all what we need at the moment is right and better leadership. Leadership that would control the government in stable way and start the balance development of tourism in country. We don’t need to do much just recognizing the right and better touristic zone, and managing it with the world standard but in unique Nepali way would be better. We can look into various fields which directly will help to broaden the touristic destination like it’s festivals and culture, it’s beautiful villages, adventurous spots, agricultural farms, high mountains and so on.
Festival in Nepal
        
    Nepal shows unity in diversity. one of the interesting ways of understanding the beauty and richness of Nepali culture is through its festivals. Participating in the local festivities gives visitors an insight into the life of the Nepali people and makes their stay in Nepal more colorful. Hence, in preserving the large number of cultures and festivals Nepal can promote the future prospect of tourism in the Himalayas. Another lucrative area of promoting Nepalese tourism lies in exploring pilgrimage destinations scattered throughout the nation. Nepal has numerous ancient pilgrimage sites. Like: Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath Stupa and hundreds of famous temples are located in other parts of the country as well. Some well-known pilgrimage sites are: Barah Chhetra, Janakpur, Tengboche, Manakamana, Lumbini, Muktinath, Gosainkunda, and Khaptad Ashram in Khaptad. Similarly, another scope is village. 
Village of Nepal

           Nepal is a country of villages. Traveling in the villages of Nepal, a traveler can see the way of life which has not changed even at the advent of modern science and technology. Promoting the concept like Homestay in Nepal can transform the economic prosperity of the country. It is in the sense that visitors within this concept spend a few days living with the local people where they will be treated as honored family guests. In doing so, the travelers may spend a considerable amount of money in the local area. Besides this, travelers are pretty much interested to look the simplicity, to taste the local food, and to witness local cultural practices. Hence, as a country of numerous villages, there lies the huge potentiality of tourism if village tourism is emphasized properly in Nepal. Trekking and mountaineering too are the heart of tourism in Nepal. There are a number of mountain regions in Nepal that still needs to be explored. Most of the travelers in Nepal are very much familiar about the popular trekking and peak climbing routes. Unlike those popular routes, there is huge potential to go for exploring virgin territory of the Himalayas in Nepal. If mountain tourism is comprehensively promoted there is massive potentiality to develop tourism in Nepal. Beyond mountaineering and adventure trekking, Nepal is also popularly associated with various sorts of adventure world. The traveler can taste the adventure of Paragliding in the beautiful city of Pokhara. There are high potentialities of going to Sky Dive, Boating, Fishing, Angling, and Canyoning. To the top of all these adventures, Bungee Jumping at the gorge of the Bhoti Kosi River gives the ultimate thrill. Motivating the world travelers towards Sport Tourism. Nepal is known as an agricultural country where more than eighty percent of its people survive from farming. The traditional agriculture system of Nepal too carries the heavy prospect of creating a new dimension in the field of tourism in Nepal. Agro-tourism brings international visitors to the countryside and as a result, they meet lovely and hardworking people of the rural area, share a meal with them, stay in their houses as family guests, and taste their local dishes. Apart from this, they can enjoy the taste of local products as well. Hence, if Agro tourism is emphasized in this country, it will bring a huge change in the field of tourism in Nepal.


The hospitality sector is an important bedrock of promoting Nepal in the international arena. Despite Nepal’s hotel industry is providing world class hospitality to visitors it is not the end of the story. Nepal’s remote villagers are well recognized because of their innocent, friendly, hospitable and ever welcoming behaviors. Understanding the etiquette of the traditional hospitality of rural parts of Nepal and receiving them magnificently lure the attention of visitors in Nepal. So, exploring those hospitable and friendly behaviors of Nepalese in the remote parts of Nepal can drag the huge crowds of visitors in those regions of Nepal and thereby change the direction of Nepal tourism.

Thus, Nepal carries the huge possibilities in promoting the more touristic zones or destination. Instead of saying ‘our country is poor we should use those sources, which we are rich in. if we focus on those above mentioned points like: festivals, villages, hospitality, agriculture, adventure and so on. Our country can rise higher in economical scale. The leadership of the nation too plays the vital role to make the country renown in the world. If we check the statistic of the arrivals of tourists it’s being fluctuating throughout the years but can rise it high by considering on those important fields. The legal authority and Nepal Tourism Board should think twice upon these issues.
