12 Things I dare you to do before you finish school or college

Dear students, I dare you to do these 12 things before you graduate (from school or college).

  1. Intern: go work for free for someone at-least 1 month every year. Practical experience is what you sorely lack in school. Interning is how you ready yourself for the world.

  2. Perform: actively in school (in theatre, arts, singing, dancing & similar). Expand your horizons, build your self-confidence sooner than later.

  3. Learn: how “finance” work (specially the power of compound interest and exponential function). Wealth ensures you have more freedom to pursue what you want in life. Learn its basics.

  4. Give: 10% of what you are given back to charity. Make this a rule. True bliss lies in sharing what you have.

  5. Travel: to a remote mountain, hilly and Terai village for at least two weeks each. To know your environment is to truly know yourself.

  6. Mentor: one junior a year. To show a path forward for one (wo)man is to build a giant path for humanity.

  7. Use: right to information (RTI) law to find how your ward officials are solving problems in your tole. To hold your local government accountable is to become yourself responsible.

  8. Build: a club that solves a collective headache you all face in school or college. Together we build courage to face the fears we dare not face alone.

  9. Fail: enough times to fill a resume / cv with failures only. Behind every success is a series of failures.

  10. Play: in a team sports (or manage them). If you want to go fast, go alone but if you want to go far, go together.

  11. Start: a blog (diary) about your experiences and passions. Remember, your thoughts mold you and explain yourself to you.

  12. Grit: Use grit (persistence) to never take ‘No’ for an answer. The secret to success (at least in Nepal) is not in being the first, but in out-lasting everyone else.

Do these and you will become an inspiration for Nepal! (and much beyond)
Trust me :)

12 of your inherent rights that come with responsibilities

my-rights-and-my-responsibilities

I believe in:

  1. your right to speak up (silence kills)  along with your responsibility to know when to shut up (words can kill)

  2. your right to own anything  along with  your responsibility to take great care of all that you own.

  3. your right to your privacy along with your responsibility to be accountable to those who live around you

  4. your right to do any work along with your responsibility to bear consequences of your work.

  5. your right to keep what you reap along with your responsibility to share what you reap.

  6. your right to love anyone  along with your responsibility to love anything (environment, society) that protects you.

  7. your right to refuse to help an unjust government along with your responsibility to help install a just ‘servant’ government

  8. your right to bring life (or to die) at your will along with your responsibility to protect lives in peril or in despair

  9. your right to safeguard your life along with your responsibility to safeguard other’s lives .

  10. your right to follow your own thoughts, dreams or religion along with your responsibility to use your thoughts, will, philosophy or religion to unite…

  11. your right to live a life any way you want along with your responsibility to make a dent in the universe before you go away

  12. your right to be any nation’s citizen if you can prove your love for it along with your responsibility to keep on proving that you deserve to remain its citizen.

 

Every single one of our rights comes balanced with responsibilities! Are you ready to balance them? Are you ready to follow this ‘BibekSheel’ middle path?

Think about this the next time you take a step. Change begins with you.

 

नेपाली क्रिकेट टिमले नेपालका नेतालाई सिकाएका १० नेतृत्वका पाठ

नेपालका ‘नेता’हरुले हाम्रो क्रिकेट टिमबाट नेतृत्वको भरपूर पाठ सिक्नु छ! (Read in English)

नेपाली क्रिकेट टिमले हाम्रा नेतालाई के पाठ सिकाउदैँ छन् त?

  1. कसरी (सहि) ईतिहाँस रच्ने
  2. कसरी देशको महिमा बढाउने
  3. कसरी जीत-जीतको वातावरण तयार गर्ने
  4. कसरी नेपाली को तन-मन जिती राख्ने खेल जित्दा मात्र होईन हार्दा पनि
  5. कसरी मिलेरै लक्ष्य हासिँल गर्ने अाफु-अाफुबिच  जत्ति नि दुष्मनी वा महत्वकाङ्क्षा भए पनि
  6. कसरी न्यून श्रोतमा पनि अपार सफलता हाँसिल गर्ने
  7. कसरी नेतृत्व भनेको बोलेर होईन गरेर देखाउने हो
  8. कसरी योग्यतामुखी बाटो नै सफलता पाउने सर्वत्तम बाटो हो ( उनीहरु योग्यताको अाधारमा रोजिएका थिए न कि नाता, जात-भात, गुट, धन, पहुँच वा भनसुनको अाधारमा )
  9. कसरी युवा पिढि यो देशको भविष्य मात्र नभई, बर्तमान पनि हो
  10. कसरी नेपालीहरुलाई एक बनाए – ‘असम्भव’ नै सम्भव बन्न थाल्छ !

हाम्रो क्रिकेट टिमको उपलब्धि अघि म श्रद्धाले शीर झुँकाउछु!

हेर्नुहोस् कसरी हाम्रो नव-पुस्ताका नेपालीहरु हाम्रो हिरोहरुलाई स्वागत गरे बिमानस्थलमा ! जहिले पनि हामीले यस्तै सहयोग गरि राखौँ जब जब हाम्रो शीर ठाडो बनाई राख्छन् उनीहरुले!

र केहि महिना अघिको

(राजनीतिक) बिधार्थी संगठनको सट्टा के त ?

.

राजनीतिक बिधार्थी संगठनको ठाँउमा ‘कलेज कल्याण परिषद” राखे कसो होला ?
जसमा ‘बिधार्थी, प्रशासक, प्रध्यापक, कर्मचारी, त्यो टोलका प्रतिनिधि अनि भुतपूर्व बिधार्थीका प्रतिनिधि’ एकै ठाँउमा बसी सबैका साझा समस्याका हल गरिने छ।

राजनीतिक संघ-संगठनको सट्टा काम अनुसारको क्लब प्रणाली राखे कसो होला ? उदाहरणको लागि उद्दमशील क्लब, कृकेट क्लब, पेशा परामर्श (career counseling) क्लब, वातावरण क्लब अादि खोलेर बिधार्थीको हितमा लाग्ने।

काम नपाएर राजनीतिको नाम लिएर गुण्डागर्दी संगठन खोलेर काम छैन नेपाल । योग्यतामुखी समाज बनाउने हो भने यो चाकडी-गुण्डागर्दी प्रथा त्यागी विवेकशील उपायहरु अपनाउनु बेश साथीहरु !

 

Don’t jump into quick conclusion. Lets be humble when judging others.

‘Sensational Media + Quick to judge masses = Shameful culture’

Whenever you hear, read or see something, we (amplifiers in media /social media) have a habit to spread the ‘gossip’. For your own good, do take a step back. If you have to judge, first ‘empathize’. We are all going through hard times surviving in this world. Lets not be hasty to judge and point fingers at people unless you see clear proofs. Truths are rarely black and white. In fact when anyone sets out to do something, we usually do it thinking we are doing something right…

Jumping into quick conclusion only hurts us more. The greatest gift we humans get is “empathy” and “logic”. Use them wisely.
These days I see us  framing news in such a way that the masses perceives the news as the only truth.

Note to Amplifiers:
1) Be humble while amplifying.
2) Best to wait until you verify breaking news.
3)Best be a miser at amplifying bad news
