Nepal ranks 33rd most fragile state in 2016

Definitely as expected.

On a recently published Fragile States Index (FSI) report from Fund for Peace (FPP), Nepal has ranked as 33rd most fragile state in the world.

Last year 2015, Nepal ranked 36th in Fragile Index globally.

The worsening sustainability issues has brought down Fragile State Index of Nepal.

Fund For Peace (FFP), a Washington-based research and educational institution, has ranked Nepal as the 33rd most fragile state in the world.

Don’t always trust maps, digital street maps. Even though the roads are not pitched or black tarred, they are shown as a wide roads on the maps. The same thing has happened today as well, it was hard to believe that the road marked was actually a non-motorable and just nameshake road.

Abundant petroleum in Hetauda, obvisouly in the gray market. Seen people selling liters of petrol at Rs 250 per liter and diesel near the Hetauda bus park.

Hetuda Day 3rd Walk in the environment friendly city

Hetauda has won the environment friendly city many times – both the sides of the major roads have green trees giving pedestrians a cooler aura.

Morning walk in Hetauda, Day 2

Day 2nd of morning walk and roaming in Hetauda. Exploring the bank roads, and early morning cleaning in the city.

The city is moving fast, even faster with smarter Tuk Tuk or Tempo like electronic Rikshaw. Kathmandu need to learn to have these kind of simple electronic vehicle – context Indian blockade fuel shortage in the country.

Day 2: Hetauda is located slightly in obliterated mode – I mean whenever we wake up early in the morning, the mountains are usually on the North, and the sun rises in the East. Oops, the sun always rises in the Eat, here in Hetauda as well. But it is weird to see the setting sun in North (equivalent to what location used to be in Pokhara.)

Trip to Hetauda & Day 1 of Morning Walk

Starting this blog post, I have planned to start a travel journal – log of travels of all kinds – even the shorter trips – work related or personal ones. I have come to Hetauda on a week long program – delivering eGovernment Infrastructure Management training to the ICT Volunteers. Obviously no the first time in Hetauda, but the longest stay made so far.

Made in Nepal र नयाँ नेपाली शब्दकोष

यी हुन् नेपाली शब्दकोष र जनजीवनमा फरक–फरक अर्थ लाग्ने केही प्रचलित शब्द र शब्दार्थ ।

मेड इन नेपाल ?
टोपी कोरियामा, सर्ट थाइल्यान्डमा बनेको । पाइन्ट इटालीमा, गन्जी भारतमा बनेको । जुत्ता नेपालमै बनेको तर तलुवामा ‘मेड इन चाइना’ लेखेको । हातमा बोकेको फोन हेर्नूस्– चीनमै बनेको । अहा, क्या मजाले नेपाली हिँडेको ।

बिहान उठ्छ, चिया खान्छ । दूध नेपाली तर चिया–चिनी भारतको । पकाउने ग्यास अरबको त्यही पनि भारतले नेपाल आउन रोकेको । पकाउने भाँडा विदेशको, चामल, तरकारी नेपालको (कहिलेकाहीँ भारतको पनि) तर त्यसलाई फलाउने मलखादचाहिँ भारतकै । अनि, यो सबै किन्ने दाम छोराले खाडीबाट पठाको ।

Using Procrastination as an opportunity?

Procrastination: the avoidance of doing a task which needs to be accomplished. It is the practice of doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, or carrying out less urgent tasks instead of more urgent ones, thus putting off impending tasks to a later time. ~ Wiki Continue reading Using Procrastination as an opportunity?
