The Skinwalker
- Sonic Smrit Shrestha - 25061, ... 04 December, 2023

The Skinwalkers are an ancient folklore and myth that originated in America in the 1800s. The origins of encounters of the Skinwalkers first came from the Navajo tribe. The Navajo tribe is a tribe of Native Americans whose earliest settlements lay in the southwestern parts of the United States. The Navajo people tell stories about strange things that creep and crawl around the wild desert expanses and the forests of America. One of the famous stories of their people is of the legend about evil witches. They call these witches “Venaldooshi” in their native language. The Venaldooshi are those types of witches that walk on all four legs which are also called Skinwalkers. Such a creature is considered half person and half animal. The legend starts with a medicine man or woman who once used to use their power of healing for good but for some reason, they turned evil and murdered and ate the flesh of their human victims and so they were cursed. Due to that reason, they are believed to be immortal and the only way to kill them is to destroy their animal form.

The Skinwalkers are considered to bring pain and suffering to their victims and in the legend the Skinwalkers crawl into a person's mind and control them. They can make them hear things and see things that are not really there. While the Navajo people have passed down their myths and legends throughout the generations there are some modern-day people who say that they have seen a Skinwalker. The Navajo people say that in the morning the Skinwalker acts like a normal person but at night they change back to a man-animal hybrid who looks like an animal but walks on two legs and is as smart as a human. 

In one of the stories shared by a native American, The man says that he saw a Skinwalker during one of his hunting chores. The man claims that when he was hunting deer he saw a wolf standing on two legs. He proceeded to shoot the wolf for safety because his house was near that area as well as for the wolf's fur. But when he shot the wolf down and approached the wolf or what he thought was a wolf, he saw an animal-man hybrid in front of him. The man said that he looked like a dog in a man's body. The man was scared because he thought that he had killed someone so he buried the body in a hole and ran. 

The man told that story on his deathbed. 

The Navajo people said that the story that the man told was probably true because a Skinwalker can only die in animal form and their curse gets lifted when they die. The legend of the Skinwalkers is not well understood outside of Navajo culture. This is mainly due to the Navajo people's unwillingness to talk about the Skinwalkers because they think that if they talk about them they will attract the Skinwalkers to them. Traditional Navajo people are reluctant to reveal skin-walker lore to non-Navajos or to discuss it at all among those they do not trust. Due to this, the lore behind the Skinwalkers is not completely known and the whole legend is like a puzzle with missing pieces and mysteries.

The Global Obesity Epidemic
- Chahat R.S. Rathour - 24018, ... 01 December, 2023

Obesity is a big problem all around the world. According to the WHO, the number of overweight and obese people has tripled since 1975. Right now, there are more than 1.9 billion adults who are overweight and over 650 million who are obese.  

This is a serious issue as being obese can lead to various health problems including heart problems, strokes, diabetes, and some kinds of cancer. To help you understand how big this problem is, think about all the overweight and obese people in the world. If they were put together, they would be the third-largest group of people in the world, just after China and India.

Obesity is caused by the people themselves. Most people become obese due to unhealthy eating habits namely eating packaged or junk foods rather than healthy food. The required nutrients, carbohydrates are not attained with excessive use of junk foods. Without eating healthy food, no person can hope to become healthy.  The lack of physical activity can also lead to obesity. Without any physical activity, the fats don’t burn and thus store in the body resulting in obesity. 

Emotional factors developed due to bullying, depression causes obesity. Rather, it messes up the individual’s well-being to cause them to do abnormal things. One such case is excessive eating. With excessive eating, no physical activity being stored in the room can also in some way contribute to obesity. Medical conditions like underactive thyroid, Cushing syndrome and polycystic ovary syndrome also contribute to obesity. 

Obesity is just the beginning of bad well-being. Physically, being obese amplifies the risk of severe ailments like heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. The simple act of moving becomes difficult, chipping away at both mobility and independence. Beyond the individual, the societal impact is notable, escalating healthcare costs and impacting communities. In addressing obesity, we're not only championing personal health but also weaving a fabric of communal well-being.

An obesogenic environment refers to the various external factors and conditions in our modern society that promote unhealthy eating habits, sedentary lifestyles, and ultimately contribute to the rising rates of obesity. It's an environment that makes it easier for people to gain weight and harder for them to maintain a healthy weight. Weight bias in healthcare refers to the negative attitudes, stereotypes, and discriminatory behavior that healthcare professionals may exhibit toward individuals who are overweight or obese. It can have serious consequences for the physical and mental health of these patients.

Now, is there a role of the government in controlling obesity? Well yes, but taking measures like allowing good healthy food, keeping spaces for physical activities and such are already responsibilities the government holds. It is not really a big idea that shall only help the obese people. To control obesity, it is the duty and responsibility of oneself. Keeping our body healthy and taking care of it is the most normal and basic thing anyone can do. So why ruin it and make matters worse?

In conclusion, the battle against obesity is not just about shedding pounds; it's about reclaiming lives, rebuilding health, and redefining our future. The path to a healthier world requires a collective commitment. By adopting healthier eating habits, increasing physical activity, fostering an environment, and promoting awareness, we can begin to chip away at the obesity epidemic.

अविस्मरणीय शैक्षिक भ्रमण
- Aagaman Dotel - 25069, Grade ... 01 December, 2023

भ्रमण जाने कुराले हाेला म अघिल्लो दिनबाट धेरै उत्साहित थिएँ । बिहान पनि छिट्टै आँखा खुले । घाम कहिले उदाउने हो भनी सोचिरहेको थिएँ । म मेरो नयाँ दिन नयाँ जीवनको साथ सुरु गर्न रातभर उत्सुकतापूर्वक पर्खिरहेको थिएँ । 

कोठातर्फ उज्यालोका  किरणहरू आउँदा सूर्यको गुलाबले मेरो अनुहारमा मिठो मुस्कान ल्यायो । 

कक्षा ९ मा पढ्ने हामी चित्लाङसम्मकाे यात्रा गर्दै थियाै । कोभिडले संसार अस्तव्यस्त भएकाे बेला हामी पनि पूर्ण रूपमा समस्यामा थियौं तर जोखिम मोलेर पनि विद्यालयले हामीलाई भ्रमणमा गयौँ  । यसमाने पनि म निकै खुशी छु त्याे पल सम्झदा ।

जाने त्याे दिन भोलिपल्ट बिहान ४ बजे मेरो बुबाले मलाई विद्यालयतिर लैजानुभयो । मैले टर्च लाइट बिर्सें । टर्च लाइट किन्न गएँ । बिहानै भएर हाेला पाउनै मुश्किल । बल्लबल्ल टर्च लाइट किनेपछि हामी हाम्रो आफ्नै स्कुल बसतिर लाग्यौं । 

हाम्रो स्कुलको बसले हामीलाई थानकोटतर्फ लग्यो र हामीलाई त्यहाँ झार्याे । हामीलाई नयाँ डिलक्स बसमा बस्न भनियो ।

 खै के कुरामा हाे, हाम्रो ड्राइभरलाई गाइडले गाली गर्यो त्यसपछि ड्राइभरले आफ्नो मनोवृत्ति देखाउन थाल्यो जसको कारण चालक र गाइड बीच झगडा भयो । हाम्रो चालकले हाम्रो गाइडलाई नराम्ररी अपमान गरेको थियो। 

झगडा  लामाे झण्डै दुई बजेसम्म जारी रह्यो । त्यसपछि हाम्रो सिद्धान्तले पुलिसलाई बोलायो र ड्राइभरलाई लगियो जहाँ हामी अर्को बसमा गयौं र धेरै रमाइलो गर्यौं । तर दुर्भाग्य बसको टायर पङ्चर भयो । त्यो नराम्रो घटनापछि हामी सबै समस्यामा थियौँ । हामीले आफूलाई शान्त पार्ने प्रयास गर्यौं। हामीलाई बाटोमा बस्न भनियो । हामीले हाम्रो सबै खाजा खायौँ र अन्त्यमा बसको थकान फिक्स भयो र मिठाे मुस्कानका साथ हामी आ-आफ्नो सिटमा बस्यौं । साँझ पाँच बजे हामीलाई हाम्रो कोठामा पठाइयो र एक घण्टा आराम गर्न भनियो र साँझ ६ बजे हामी फर्पिङ पुलमा गयौँ र धेरै प्रजातिका माछाहरू पौडी खेलिरहेका देख्यौँ। गाइडले हामीलाई पाैडिन पनि सकिन्छ भन्ने कुरा राखे । 

मेरो साथी पानीसँग डराएको थियो उसलाई पाैडि खेल्न आउँदैनथ्याे । पछि ऊ पनि पाैडिनका लागि तयार भयाे । हामीले पौडी खेल्यौं । बेलुका ८ बजे हाम्रो गाइडले हामीलाई त्यहाँ उपलब्ध वनस्पति र जीवजन्तुहरूको बारेमा पनि जानकारी दिए ।  त्यहाँ वनस्पति र जीवजन्तुका विभिन्न प्रजातिहरू थिए जुन धेरै चाखलाग्दो थिए । 

हामी पनिर उत्पादन क्षेत्रमा गयौँ र त्यहाँ उपलब्ध पनिर धेरै स्वच्छ र स्वादिष्ट थियो । त्यहाँ उपलब्ध बटर र मासु धेरै स्वादिष्ट थियो तर त्यहाँको शाैचालय भने फोहोर थियो । स्थानीयहरू आफ्नो जीवनको लागि कडा परिश्रम गरिरहेका थिए । त्यहाँ गाई र भैंसीहरूले गाउँ धेरै रमाइलाे भएकाे मैले अनुभूत गरेँ । 

त्याे रात खासै निद्रा पनि लागेन । हामी जम्मा ३ घण्टा सुतेछाैँ । बिहान हाम्रा साथीहरूले हामीलाई फोन गरे र हामी न्यानो बिहान उठ्यौं । 

हाम्रो गाइड कोभिडबाट सङ्क्रमित भएको सुनिएको थियो । डरले हाम सबै जना आत्तिएका थियाे । परिस्थिति नै त्यस्तै थियाे । तर त्याे गलत रहेछ । त्यसपछि हामी भीमफेदीतर्फ लाग्यौं । हामीले बिहानी खाजाका रूपमा स्थानीय कुखुरा खायौँ र हाम्रो सुटकेस प्याक गर्यौं । भीमफेदी राम्रो र सुन्दर ठाउँ थियो ।

हामीले एउटा ठाउँ देख्यौं जहाँ हाम्रा बहादुर पुर्खाहरूले पहिलो नेपाली कार बोकेका थिए । हामी यो कुरा सुनेर धेरै खुसी भयौँ तब हामी माछाको बारेमा जान्नको लागि फर्पिङमा गयौँ । 

दिन बित्यो र हामीले हाम्रो कार्यभार ९ बजे सुरु गर्‍यौँ र लगभग २ बजे पूरा गर्‍यौं । हामी स्याउको जुस पसलतर्फ लाग्यौं जहाँ हामीले स्याउबाट जुस कसरी बन्दाे रहेछ भनेर सिक्ने अवसर पायाैँ । हामीले जुस उत्पादन गर्ने मेसिनको मेकानिजम जस्ता विभिन्न कुराहरू सिकेका थियौँ । यो कुनै पनि रसायनको मिश्रण बिना एक अर्गानिक रस थियो । हामीले जुस पनि पियाैँ । राती पनि फायरफ्लाइहरू देख्यौँ । 

घुम्न पाउनु कसका लागि रमाइलाे नहाेला र ! नयाँ ठाउँ, नयाँ  परिवेश नयाँ वातावरण साच्चिकै याे यात्रा मेरा लागि पनि अविस्मरणीय रह्याे ।

धेरै थाकेको यी अटुट चेनहरूद्वारा तानिएको

यो कहिल्यै अन्त्य नहुने अन्धकार र अराजकताको गहिराइमा

 मेरो सम्पूर्ण जीवनलाई पीडा दिइरहेको छ।

समय बित्दै गएको यो अथाह खाडलमा

मेरा आँखा थकित हुन्छन्,

सचेत रहन गाह्रो छ।

मलाई आफ्नाे दृष्टि गुमाउनको लागि मलाई बाँधिएको साङ्लाहरू

मलाई मारियोनेट जस्तै नियन्त्रण गर्न

सास फेर्न गाह्रो भैरहेको छ चेनहरूभित्र तान्दा

भविष्यको दृष्टि धमिलो पार्दै

मलाई बेहोस महसुस गराउँदै।

तर जब म सुन्दर पलिङ मधुर सुन्छु

 टुट्न नसकिने चेनहरू फुट्न थालेका छन्

मलाई सुन्दर संसार र रमाइलो साहसिक कार्यहरू

मेरो लागि पर्खिरहेको देखाउन

यदि म यो धुन सधैंभरि सुन्न सक्छु

र अन्तत क्षमासँग संसारमा बाँच्नुहोस्।

My Preferred Tools in Kali Linux OS
- Saurav Phuyal - 24035, Grade ... 29 November, 2023


Kali Linux, is a popular OS for its penetration testing and ethical hacking capabilities. It is a treasure of utilities and tools that help in performing vulnerability testing, password cracking and even hacking. As a student diving into the world of cybersecurity and ethical hacking, I depend a lot on certain tools from Kali Linux. In this article, I'll highlight the tools I find most important and give you a basic idea of how to use them using plain and straightforward language.

1. Aircrack-ng

A complete toolkit to test Wi-Fi network security is called Aircrack-ng. It comes in very useful when trying to crack WPA/WPA2 and WEP encryption keys. To begin, take into consideration following commands:

   - Scanning available wireless networks:

     airodump-ng <interface>

   - Capturing network traffic:

     airodump-ng -w <output_file> --bssid <target_BSSID> <interface>

   - Cracking Wi-Fi passwords (WPA/WPA2):

     aircrack-ng -w <wordlist> -b <target_BSSID> <capture_file>

2. Wifite

Wifite automates a number of procedures to make Wi-Fi penetration testing easier. It's a sensible choice for students to think about. Just open a terminal and enter the following to utilize Wifite (don’t break into anyones Wi-Fi its illegal): wifite

3. Wireshark

One powerful network protocol analyzer that makes it possible to examine data packets inside a network is Wireshark. It functions as a vital resource for monitoring network traffic. Start packet capture by doing the following or you can use easy to use GUI: wireshark

4. Burp Suite

Web application security flaws can be found with Burp Suite, a proxy and web vulnerability scanner. In order to start Burp Suite, open a terminal and type: burpsuite

5. Nmap

Nmap is a flexible tool for network scanning that is used to find open ports and services on different hosts. Use this command to do a basic Nmap scan of a target host (ip address or domain name): nmap <target_IP>

6. Nano

A simple text editor that runs in the terminal is called Nano. When altering scripts and configuration files, it is quite helpful. To use Nano to open a file run this command: nano <file_name>

7. Terminal

In Kali Linux or other Linux the Terminal is mostly used for running scripts and commands, whenever I start Linux OS the first thing I do is open Terminal and start typing commands. It gives users the ability to run scripts, issue commands, and communicate with the operating system. To open the terminal, just hit {Ctrl+Alt+T}.


For a student, Kali Linux opens up an interesting world of investigating cybersecurity and ethical hacking. The tools mentioned above give you an idea of what Kali Linux is capable of. Gaining knowledge of these technologies can provide insightful information on ethical hacking and network security, making the learning process interesting and instructive for students. Never forget to follow moral and legal requirements when using these instruments in a responsible and ethical manner.

मिथिलाः नेपाल चिनाउने संस्कृति
- Binit Kayastha - 25075, Grade ... 29 November, 2023

नेपाल संस्कृतिामा धनी देश हो, जहाँ विभिन्न जातजातिका मानिसहरू बस्छन् । जसमध्ये मलाई मन पर्ने संस्कृति मेरो संस्कृति मैथिली हो । हरेक जातजातिका  आफ्नै संस्कृति हुन्छन् र तिनका विभिन्न विषेशता हुन्छन् त्यसैगरी मैथिली संस्कृतिको पनि आफ्ना थुप्रै विशेषताहरू  छन्।

मैथिल संस्कृति नेपालको तराई क्षेत्रमा मनाउने संस्कृति हो । राजा जनकको कर्मभूमि र उनको राज्यको नाम मिथिला हाे,  जहा माता जानकीको/ सिताको जन्म भयो। जहाँ प्रभु रामचन्द्र र सिता माताको शुभ विवाह भएको थियो। 

जुन ठाउँलाई अहिले जनकपुर भनेर चिनिन्छ । जनकपुर जुन अहिले मधेस प्रदेशको राजधानी भनेर चिनिन्छ तर मेरो विचारमा यो प्रदेशको नाम मिथिला हुनुपर्छ । 

मिथिला भन्ने बित्तिकै जनकपुर मात्र नभई पूरै तराई क्षेत्रलाई नै बुझिन्छ। मिथिलाको प्रमुख भाषा मैथिली हो । यहाँ भाेजपुरी, अवधि, भजिका अनि थुप्रै भाषाहरू  बोलिन्छन् । मैथिली भाषाको उत्पत्ति कर्ण कायस्थ भन्ने जाति वा समुदायबाट भएको हो । 

उसले दसौं शताब्दी पूर्व कायस्थ जातिको रुपमा स्वीकृति पाएका थिए। कर्ण स्पष्टतः लेखकहरूका समूहमा परिचित नाम थियो ।

कायस्थहरू चित्रगुप्तलाई आफ्नो प्रथम पुरुष (ईष्ट देव, कुल पुरुष) मान्छन् । ब्रह्माको कायाबाट चित्रगुप्तको उत्पत्ति भएकोले उनलाई कायस्थ भनिएको तथा उनै चित्रगुप्तका बाह्र भाइ छोराहरूबाट कायस्थको बिस्तार भएको भन्ने पौराणिक कथाहरू प्रचलित छन् ।


मिथिलामा कर्णाट वंशको स्थापना सन् १०९७ मा नान्यदेवले गरे । जुन वंशको शासन मिथिलामा २२७ सालसम्म चल्यो । यसकालमा साहित्य, कला-सङ्गीत र मैथिली भाषाको क्षेत्रमा निकै प्रगति भएकाे इतिहासबाट थाहा पाइन्छ । यसकालमा स्मृति, नित्यकर्म, विवाह, धर्म चर्चा, स्वयम्वर, विभिन्न वर्णको कर्तव्यमाथि ग्रन्थको रचना गरिनुका साथै समाजमा सङ्गीत, नृत्य आदिको प्रचार भयो ।

मिथिला गीत-सङ्गीतको क्षेत्रमा पनि कायस्थहरूको उल्लेखनीय योगदान रहेको छ । मानव जातिकाे भावभिव्यत्तिको पहिलो साधन सङ्गीत हुन्छ। संसारका सबैभन्दा बढी सांस्कारिक विधिहरू सम्भवतः मिथिलामा नै पाइन्छ र प्रत्येक विधिका लागि गीत त्यसका राग सुनिश्चित छन् । यस अर्थमा मैथिली लोकसाहित्य सांस्कृतिक मिथिलाको अमूल्य निधि हो । 

तिरहुत गीत मैथिली लोकगीतमध्ये सबैभन्दा समृद्ध छ । यसमा प्रेम सम्बन्धी गीतको प्रधाननता हुन्छ । यसमा विरह एवं संयोग दुवैको वर्णन भेटिन्छ । 

यसैगरी मिथिलाका महाकवि  विद्यापतिले मैथिली कविता अनि धेरै मैथिली  गीतहरू लेखेका हुन् । पौराणिक मान्यताअनुरूप विद्यापतिकाे गीतबाट प्रेरित भएर महादेव उनको सामु नोकरकाे रूपमा गहना बनेर आएका थिए।  पछि उहाँ गएपछि कविले गीत गाएका थिए । “उगना रे तु कत हरेल ।”

मिथिलाको पारस्परिक चित्रहरू जुन पुरै विश्वमा मिथिला पेन्टिङ्ग भनेर प्रख्यात मानिन्छन् । जस्तै: कोबर, नैनाजोगीनजस्ता अनेकौँ प्रकारका चित्रहरू छन् । मिथिला  चित्रहरू खासगरी बाँसको कलमले कपडामा बनाउने गरिन्छ। यसले मिथिला बासिन्दाको जीवनयापन, संस्कार, परम्परालाई उजागर गर्दछन् ।

मिथिला पर्वहरू पनि अत्यन्तै प्रख्यात छन् जस्तै: छठ, मधुश्रावणी, वर्षाइत जस्ता अनेकौँ  छन्। मिथिलाको विवाह खास गरी कर्ण कायस्थको विवाह सबैभन्दा रमाइलो अनि विधि अनृकौँ ठूलो हुन्छन् । 

मिथिलाको संस्कृतिक लुगा धोती कुर्ता अनि पाग पुरुषको अनि महिलाको सारी हो। जुन लुगा लगाएर हामी मिथिला बासीको सान बढ्छ । जुन लुगा लगाएर मिथिला बासीको विवाह हुन्छ। “धोती कुर्ता पाग सारी आरो मौर जे मिथिला बासीके सान छै ।” मिथिला बासीको विवाह खासगरी  कर्ण कायस्थको एक दिन  नभई  धेरै दिन लागेर विधिविधानका साथै हुने गर्दछ । यसैगरी महिलाहरू विभिन्न किसिमका गहनाहरू  लगाउने गर्दछन् जस्तैः टीका, नथिया, झुम्का, पायल, बिछीया आदि ।

मिथिलाको कुरा भयो अनि मिथिलाो खानाको कुरा भएन  मिथिला संस्कृति अधुराे हुन जान्छ । दाल, भात, घिउ, बरी,कञ्चको तरकारी, साग, तरुवा खासगरी  तिल्कौरको तरूवा, फूलौरी, पाएर, अचार, दही विभिन्न थरीका मिठाईहरू जस्तैः खाजा, गाजा, खजुर, ठकुवा, पुलुकया आदि ।

सायद यिनै कुराहरूले हाेला  मिथिलालाई “स्वर्गस  सुन्दर गाम हमर मिथिला धाम” भनिएकाे ।

यसको जति कुरा गरे पनि  कम नै हुने छ। “हमर मिथिला धाम ।”

डियरवाक पोइट्री नाइट २०८० एक अविस्मरणीय पल
- Pranish Khanal - 24080, Grade ... 28 November, 2023

हरेक वर्षजस्तै यस वर्ष पनि “डियरवाक पोइट्री नाइट” को कार्यक्रम आयोजना गरिएको थियो । यस कार्यक्रमको मुख्य उद्देश्य भनेको विद्यालयमा लुकेका कविहरूलाई उनीहरूकाे कला प्रस्फुटन गराउनु हाे । यस कार्यक्रममा विद्यालयका उत्कृष्टभन्दा उत्कृष्ट कवि विद्यार्थीहरू बिच प्रतिस्पर्धा हुने गर्छ । कार्यक्रमको आयोजना र कार्यान्वयन विद्यालयको अङ्ग्रेजी र नेपाली विभागले गरेको थियो । करिब ७० दिन लामो चलेको यो कार्यक्रममा चार चरणहरू थिए । 

डियरवाक पोइट्री नाइट २०८० मा कक्षा १ देखि कक्षा १२ सम्मका विद्यार्थीहरूको सहभागिता थियो। प्रतियोगीताको पहिलो चरण सबै कक्षाकोठा मै भएको थियो । अङ्ग्रेजी र नेपाली विधा भनेर छुट्टिएको यो प्रतियोगीतामा हरेक कक्षाको अनिवार्य सहभागिता थियो। । अङ्ग्रेजी र नेपाली विषयका गुरुहरूले प्रत्येक कक्षाको आआफ्नो छनोट चरण गराउनुभएको थियो । लगभग १ हप्ता लामो चलेको पहिलो छनोट चरणपछि क्वाटर फाइनल चरण भयो । पुनः अङ्ग्रेजी र नेपाली भाषा शिक्षकवर्गले कक्षाबाटै थप उत्कृष्ट कवि विद्यार्थीहरूको छनोट गरेर सेमिफाइनल चरणमा लागेका थिए । 

म कक्षा १२ खुम्बिलाको छात्र हुँ र मेरो कक्षाबाट म  र मेरो एक मित्र सेमी फाइनल सम्मको यात्रा तय गर्न सफल भएका थियौँ । अब भने यात्रा कठिन हुने निश्चित थियो । अबको छनोट भने फाइनलको लागि हुने थियो । कक्षा १ देखि १२ सम्मका मित्रहरूसँग रारा हलमा छनोटको लागि प्रतिस्पर्धा हुने थियो । करिब ५-७ दिनको विरा पछि पहिलो घण्टीदेखि नै सेमी फाइनल रारा हलमा भयो । प्रतिस्पर्धामा आफूले सक्दो दिएपछि कक्षातिर फर्कँदै गर्दा मेरो मनमनै  आफ्नो छनोट तथा साथीभाईको छनोट सम्बन्धी कुराहरू पनि खेले । " जे होला होला " भन्दै म कक्षाकोठा फर्किऍं । 

करिब २ दिनपछि विद्यालयको नोटिस बोर्डमा फाइनालिस्टको नाम प्रकाशन भएछ। म हेर्न गएँ । विद्यालयका ३० उत्कृष्ट कविहरूबिच आफ्नो नाम देख्दा दङ्ग परेको म फाइनलमा वाचन गर्न अझ उत्साहित थिएँ । मेरै कक्षाका अङ्ग्रेजी र नेपालीमा अन्य साथीहरू पनि छनोट भएका रहेछन् । बदाइ साटासाट गर्दै तयारीमा जुटेका हामीलाई विद्यालयले प्रशिक्षक पनि तोकेको थियो । प्रशिक्षकको सहयोग लिँदै सबै साथीहरू तयारीमा जुट्याैँ। 

भाद्र १ गते, शुक्रवार पोइट्री नाइटको फाइनल थियो । 

अङ्ग्रेजीमा १६ र नेपालीम १६ प्रतिस्पर्धी भए तापनि मात्र ३० व्यक्ति फाइनलमा थिए । दुई कवि साथीहरू दुबै विधामा छनोट भएका थिए । 

अन्ततः डियरवाकले आफ्नो विद्यालयको पोइट्री नाइट विजेताको रूपमा अङ्ग्रेजी विधामा आर्य क्षेत्री पायो र नेपाली विधामा संविद ढकाल पायो ।

Consequences of Tik Tok Ban in Nepal
- Sajiya Tamang - 25065, Grade ... 28 November, 2023

As per the information provided by the government of Nepal, Tik Tok has been banned in Nepal. This issue has created many controversies and it has given rise to negative reactions and comments from the public towards the government for their action. Here, I will briefly talk about the matter and its positive and negative impacts. In my opinion, this action of the government is not justifiable and there are many negative consequences than positive. 

According to the information provided by the Minister of communication and Information Technology, Rekha Sharma, the real reason for the ban was because it was disturbing social harmony, family structure and public relations. I agree that the unnecessary activities happening in Tik Tok was truly disturbing the peace of many families and their structure along with their relations, but I think that the decision for banning the whole app for the whole country was not necessary at all. In my view, instead of taking such a great action of banning Tik Tok, the government could have put different types of restrictions and age limitations in the app. They should have implemented strict monitoring system for controlling its misuse. It seems that they banned it when they could not monitor cyber activities. This reflects government’s inability to control such activities. This would have kept the children away from negative impacts. There would have been provision of punishment for the people promoting unnecessary and disturbing activities in Tik Tok.

There is a positive side of this issue despite the fact that it was not such a great decision. The positive effects are that the people and most of the teenagers who were addicted to using Tik Tok all the time forgetting their responsibilities won’t be able to use it anymore, and I think that they will start to think about their responsibilities now that Tik Tok is banned. People promoting such disturbing and unnecessary activities will not be able to do so. And those underage children getting affected by the bad influence and always wanting to watch Tik Tok being glued to their parents mobile phone will now be unable to watch it. It had created many eye problems in the underage children. Now I think that this problem will decrease. These are the positive effects that I see.

Now about the negative impacts, this action of the government has strongly affected people who were promoting their businesses through Tik Tok. Those social media influencers who thought that they could do something in Nepal for income without following the trend of going abroad are badly affected. And what I think and is also true is that the students were most affected by this. Students were getting various information about the unknown things from Tik Tok which helped them in many ways. But now that it is banned, they won’t be able to explore such things. We were getting so much information about our own country and the people of our country as well. Some can say that there are other media for getting information but it is not agreeable because there is no other media through which we can get information like we were getting from Tik Tok. This ban has adversely affected the social media usage, creativity and entertainment in the country. Tik Tok is a platform for exploring creative activities. It has also been a great medium for the income source for many people. But now there are more problems than there were before. 

Finally, I think that banning the whole app instead of taking action to monitor such activities is not a good idea. Before taking decisions, the government should have thought in alternative ways instead of just the one

Students’ Reluctance in Article Writing
- Yawat Malla - 24049, Grade XI ... 27 November, 2023

Writing in itself is an essential skill that holds great significance in many aspects of our lives. Article writing is an important practice to hone the skills of writing with proper etiquette. As these skills serve a great purpose in our career as well as other points in the future, teachers always encourage students to write articles as often as possible. But the bitter truth is that students are reluctant and don’t express as much interest in writing new, creative articles.

In such a situation, an educator’s disappointment is common. While everyone has their own opinion on this problem, from a student’s point of view, things are a little different. I believe reluctance in article writing is not something that students desire, but it is because there are different psychological barriers due to which students are unable to write articles. By knowing these barriers, students may be able to overcome their shortcomings and teachers may be able to help students to be a better version of themselves. 

One of the main psychological barriers students face is the fear of criticism. Articles can be criticized and evaluated, which can lead to self-doubt. The anxiety of not meeting the expectations of the readers can paralyze creative ideas, resulting in an inability to complete writing an article. As a student, I can say that I have faced this problem myself many times. The fear that I didn’t choose a suitable title, or if I did, I may not be able to meet the expectations of the readers is a fear that I believe I shared with many students like me.

The pursuit of perfection can be another silent killer for the desire to express. Students, driven by the desire to produce flawless work, may set standards so high that the act of writing becomes daunting. Breaking free from the shackles of perfectionism is essential to unlocking one’s true potential to write something phenomenal. As a student, we must be aware that we learn from our mistakes and whatever mistakes we make while exploring a new skill, our teachers are always there to help us to their fullest extent. 

Without a clear sense of purpose, writing articles may lack the appeal needed to inspire students. When students choose to write something only because they were told to, they are likely to stop at some point. Students or anyone writing an article about something should have a keen interest in the subject so that they can demonstrate their skill and even evolve as they write. Without a clear desire to express, no article can touch the hearts of the readers. 

The students may also be victims of overwhelm and procrastination. The sheer volume of assignments, coupled with the pressure to perform is understandably an overwhelming feeling which can lead to avoidance. While it may be difficult to deal with procrastination, it is not impossible to overcome. I believe the key to avoiding procrastination is the will and desire to grow into a better person. To break the cycle of procrastination, we have to set manageable goals, dissect large tasks, and foster a sense of accomplishment.

It is essential for students to write with the desire to express and evolve as well as for educators to comprehend the psychology of students. Through understanding, we can create an atmosphere where students write not just for the sake of "writing," but also to convey their ideas, vision, and untold stories. If these words were able to change a few hearts into writing something out of their own will, then I would feel deeply honored.

एसइई पछिको त्यो समय
- Himanshu Gautam - 25034, Grad ... 27 November, 2023

एसइईपछि हामीले ३ महिना बिदा पाएका थियौँ । यसै बिचमा छुट्टीका लागि धेरै योजनाहरू थिए मसँग । हाम्रो परीक्षा ठ्याक्कै २०७९ चैत २६ मा सकियो । त्यसपछि त्यही दिन म साथीहरूसँग भक्तपुर दरबार स्क्वायर गएँ । हामी ४ जना थियौँ । हामीसँग जम्मा जम्मी ४ हजार ३ सय रुपैँया थियो । हामीले नेपालको इतिहासलाई चिनाउने विभिन्न मूर्तिहरू हेर्‍यौँ । खाजा पनि त्यहीँ खायौँ । त्यहाँ बोबा चिया पनि पियौँ । बोबा चियाको बुलबुला मेरो घाँटीमा अड्कियो । त्यसपछि मैले बोबा चिया कहिल्यै नपिउने निर्णय गरेँ । हामी घर पुग्दा अँध्यारो भइसकेको थियो । त्यसपछि आइसक्रिम खान भाटभटेनी पनि गयौँ । म घर पुग्दा ढिलो भएकोले मेरी आमाले मलाई गाली गर्नुभयो । हामीले धेरै रमाइलो गरेका थियौँ । एसइई पनि सकिएको त्यो दिन हाम्रा लागि अविस्मरणीय दिन बन्यो ।

भोलिपल्टदेखि म बुबाको काम हेर्न अफिस गएँ । वैशाख १८ गतेसम्म म निरन्तर रूपमा बाबाको अफिस गएँ । हाम्रो २० गते मुक्तिनाथ जाने योजना थियो । त्यसैले म १९ गते चाहिँ सामनहरू  किन्न ममीसँग बजार गएँ । 

२० गते बिहान हाम्रो परिवार र छिमेकीको परिवार एउटै स्कोरपियोमा मुक्तिनाथ दर्शनतिर लाग्यौँ । यो यात्रा ५ दिन ४ रातको थियो । हाम्रो पहिलो दिनको बास गलेश्वर मन्दिर क्षेत्रमा थियो । 

हामी बेलुका ६ बाजेतिर त्यहाँ पुगेका थियाैँ । भोलि बिहानै हामीले गलेश्वर मन्दिरको दर्शन गरेर तातो पानीमा नुहाउन गयौँ । त्यहाँ  नुहाएपछि हामी सिधै कागबेनीमा पुगेर हजुरबुवाको श्राद्धमा सहभागी भयौँ । श्राद्ध सकिँदा त्यस्तै साँझको ५ बजेको थियो । हावा धेरै चलेको कारणले गर्दा श्राद्ध गर्न गाह्राे भइरहेको थियो । तर श्राद्ध चाँडै सकियो अनि हामी त्यहाँबाट हिड्यौँ ।

हामी त्यही रात बेलुका ७ बजे मुक्तिनाथ मन्दिरको नजिककै रहेको होटलमा बस्यौँ । हामी सबै थकित थियौँ । मन्दिर त्यति नजिक भए पनि हामीले एक दिन प्रतिक्षा गरेर भोलिपल्ट जाने निधो गर्‍यौँ । 

भोलिपल्ट बिहानै हामी मन्दिर दर्शनतिर लाग्यौँ । त्यहाँ होटल बाहिर धेरै नै चिसो थियो । तर, कोठामा न्यानो थियो । होटेलबाट करिब ७ मिनेट  हिँडेर हामी मुक्तिनाथको भर्‍याङमा पुग्यौँ । भर्‍याङबाट हिडेर जान गाह्राे हुने भएकाले आमालाई घोडामा चढाएर मन्दिरको गेटसम्म लगियो । हामी सबैजना हिँड्दै गयौँ । मलाई पनि अग्लो भूभागमा जाँदा गाह्राे हुन्छ, किनकि मेरो मुटुको उपचार गरिएको थियो । तर, मैले कसैलाई भनिन । हामीले मन्दिरमा गएर दर्शन गयौँ । लाखबत्ती पनि बाल्यौँ । तल झर्नी बेलामा मलाई अत्यन्तै गाह्राे भयो, त्यसैले म र काका चाँडो चाँडो झर्‍याैँ ।

त्यहाँबाट हामी होटल गयौं । एकछिन सुतेर आराम गरेपछि मलाई ठिक भयो । त्यहीँ दिन दिउँसो मलाई, भाइलाई र हजुर आमालाई कागबेनी छाडेर अरु सबै जना माथिल्लो मुस्ताङ जानुभयो । एक दिनको लागि हामी तीन जना होटल ड्रागनमा बस्यौँ । अर्को दिन दिउँसो १ बजेतिर माथिल्लो मुस्ताङबाट ममी र बाबा आउनुभयो । त्यहाँबाट हामी पोखराको बाटो लाग्यौँ । हामी पोखरा पुग्दा साँझ भईसकेको थियो । त्यो रात हामीले पोखरामै बितायौँ । भोलिपल्ट बिहानै हामी फेवा ताल घुम्न गयौँ । फेवाताल घुमेपछि हामी होटल आएर खाजा खायौँ र घर फर्कियौं ।

हामी घर  जाँदै गर्दा बिचमा गाडी बिग्रीयो । हामी बिहान पोखराबाट हिडेको ८ बजे पग्नु पर्ने थियो २ बजे तर गाडी बिग्रेर र धेरै जाम भएको करणले गर्दा हामी बेलुका ९ बजे घर आई पुग्यौँ । यसरी यो ठूलो यात्रा पनि राम्रोसँग सफल भयो ।

त्यसपछि म आफ्नो पढाइलाई निरन्तरता दिन इन्टेल संस्था गएँ । करिब एक महिना त्यही पढेँ पनि । त्यहाँ पढेर मैले धरै ज्ञान प्राप्त गरेँ । त्यहाँ एक महिना पढेपछि मेरो प्यारो साथीको ब्रतबन्धको लागि म र मेरो परिवार झापा गयौँ ।

झापा जाने बाटोमा मेरो गाउँ निजगढ पर्छ । झापा जाने बहानामा मेरो नागरिकता पनि बनाइयो । नागरिकता बनाएको दिन हामी सबै मेरो मामा घरमा बस्यौँ । भोलिको दिन बिहानै हामी झापातिर लाग्यौँ । त्यो दिन हामी झापामा गएर ग्रीन रिसोर्टमा बस्यौँ । त्यहाँ धेरै गर्मी थियो । हाम्रो रिसोर्टमा पौडी खेल्ने ठाउँ पनि थियो । त्यहाँ गएर हामी पौडी पनि खेल्यौँ । अर्को दिन हामी ब्रतबन्धको काममा व्यस्थ भयौँ । व्रतबन्धमा निकै रमाइलो भयो । त्यो दिन धेरै काम गरेकाले हामी थकित थियौँ र गर्मीले गर्दा पकिरहेका पनि थियौँ । त्यसैले हामी काम सकिने बितिक्कै सुत्न गयौँ । भोलिपल्ट हामी कन्याम र चियाबारी घुमेर सिन्धुली–बनेपा बाटो हुँदै घर आयौँ ।

यो यात्रा सकेपछि मेरो बिदा पनि सकिन आँटेको थियो र म डिएरवाकमा पढ्ने कुरा पहिल्यै नै निधो भइसकेको थियो । म सात कक्षामा पढ्ने बेलामा नै एसइईपछि त्यहाँ पढ्ने भनेअनुसार मेरो डिएरवाकमा भर्ना भयो । यसरी मेरो तीन महिनाको बिदा सकियो ।

साथी : एक अधुरो कथा
- Paurakh Raj Pandey - 24025, G ... 26 November, 2023

बोलूँ भने मनका कुरा कसलाई व्यक्त गरूँ ?

मेरो मनका कुरा आखिर कसले बुझ्ने हाे र ?

आँखाभरि आँसु लिई कसलाई दु:ख पोखूँ

आँशु  पुछ्ने आखिर मेरो रुमाल हाे नि साथी ?


बोल्दै छु म हुलको सामू 

 किन आफैसँग गुनगुनाको महसुस गर्छु  म  

रुन मन लाग्दा आफ्नो भावना म कसरी पाे थामूँ

मेरो मुटुमा दबिएको दु:ख  अहिले आएर रुँदै छ । 


भन्छन् कोमल मन हुनु भगवानको एक आशीर्वाद हो ।

तर किन हो आफूलाई भने श्राप झैँ लाग्दछ 

साथीले प्वाक्क केही भन्दा 

जब ती आँशु मेरा बग्न थाल्छन् 

बिगतका सम्झनाले मेरा मन चरक्क चर्किन पाे थल्दछन् । 


हाँसिरहेको छु म 

तर मनको कथा भने बेग्लै छ, 

साथीहरू त धेरै छन् मेरा 

तर मन मेरो एक्लो महशुस गर्दै छ। 


मेरै होला गल्ति त 

तिम्रो मनमा ठाउँ बनाउन सकिन 

कम छाडेर तिम्रै कुरामा अल्झिरहे 

तर प्राथमिकता भने पाउन तिम्रो सकिनँ । 


ए साथी ! अन्तिममा एक्लो महशुस गर्याे किन ?

बरु सङ्गत नै नगर ,

बेला बेलामा आफ्नो महशुस गराई 

बीच बाटोमा छाडेर जाने नगर । 


तिम्रो सुन्दर जीवनमा 

रहेछु म त मात्र केही दिनको पाहुना, 

नसकिने हाम्रा ती मिठा गफगाफ 

सकिनँ मैले अझै  भुलाउँन 


लौ भैगो यही नै थियो भाग्यमा मेरो 

सायद ग्रह नै नमिलेको हाम्रो 

आशा राख्द छु अझै 

हराएको मार्गमा सायद साथ पाउने छु कि तिम्रो ?
