When FIFA announced the goal projects for Nepal, I had thoughts that Nepal’s football will just turn upside down in a blink of an eye. That was what my initial thoughts and Mr. Ganesh Thapa was the president of ANFA. I had some crazy thoughts after that, at least Nepal will be a powerhouse of South Asia in a decade or so as I felt Nepalese love football more than any other south Asian country besides Bangladesh.
I have never played in club-level football tourneys but I have been familiar with Nepalese football since my childhood. The passion is still there. I still play futsal with my old friends now and then. As I was growing up, I used to go to Dashrath Stadium to watch games. Those days were something else. Stadium used to be full of spectators back then. I still remember some unforgettable moments of Nepalese football.
It’s been like half decade that we are facing a big problem
for vehicle parking in Kathmandu. I still remember we used to park bike single
lane at New Road and we used to pay 1 rupee. After the maoist insurgency the
over flow of people all over Nepal to Kathamndu valley for safety made the
valley to grow very fast and un-systematically.
After the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on 25th April, many people formed groups visiting quake hit areas and villages providing relief materials. Most of these groups were distributing tents for shelter and foods for the earthquake victims.
At the same time, we too had a group of friends from the field photography, both professionals and some as a hobbyist brought together by Ajay Rana Bhat. After seeing some badly hit towns like Bungamati and Shakhu, we decided to go there to make aware about sanitation and health issues while they are staying at tents. They named their group “Desh lai hamro khaacho cha” (The country needs us).

From childhood taking Photos from camera was fun for me. I used to click with point and shoot camera, which gradually got upgrade to different types of camera in time frame. SLR was the one camera that I always wanted to have. After the digital revolution in camera, I finally got my DSLR.
Things are changing real fast in today’s world. Technology has developed so much that each day we can feel the change. It took a long way for mankind to reach at this stage. Technology has taken a big leap in the field of communication. Up until a decade ago email and mobile phones were much in reach of people. Letters through postage were the cheapest means of communication and expensive long distance telephone call to talk to your loved ones were expensive.
During the past few years, cheap internet access and smart phones have changed the way people communicate.
Here I am not going to talk about these modern means of communication, but the old ones which kept people in touch for very long time. It was the one that kept family and friends close enough across boundaries. It’s the one that people had to wait for months to get response from their loved one once they send their letters.

I support Local Empowerment. So, I’m sharing this Everest Base Camp Trek to promote a new way of trekking where trekkers can empower the local service providers like lodges, guides and porters by booking services directly through them. #empoweringthehimalayas #freetriptoeverest
