American Homeless

We in Nepal, call it the land of opportunities. Thousands come to this country with different visas and many illegally risking lives. Yes, I am talking about United States of America. But many do not know there’s a bitter side too, just like back home.

This is a short story about a homeless man. I had been seeing at the same intersection near my previous job for last 3 years. Couple days back I finally gathered all the courage to go to him ask his story.

God bless him.

Everest Trailer without Sherpas

Today this trailer popped up in my facebook wall. Trailer of the upcoming movie, “Everest”, and it says based on a true story. How true !! Most western will never know, just like the Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty.

But there are few truths I know about Everest as I come from the country where the Everest. Yes, it’s in Nepal and I am from that beautiful land.

Many do not know, even though Everest is the highest mountain in the world, it’s is one of the most conquered. And it is not because people always want to conquer the highest but it is the easiest compared to conquering others. And that’s because of the Sherpas.

Truth is, a huge percentage of foreigners are carried on Sherpa’s back to the top. One of our Sherpa brother told us, “They aren’t well trained and physically not able. In the middle of the climb when they cannot even couple steps, they tell us that they have paid us for this and we must take them to the top nomatter what. So, we carry them on our back and take them to the top.”

Appleले ल्यायो २ नयाँ iPhone र घडी ।

नँया iPhoneको पर्खाइमा बसेका Appleका फ्यानहरुलाई आज अर्को उत्सव भएको छ । विभिन्न संचारमाध्यमहरुले अड्कल गरे अनुरुप आज Appleले कुपर्टिनो स्थित आफ्नो हेडक्वाटरमा २ नयाँ iPhone र घडी आफ्नो प्रयोगकर्ताहरु माझ पस्केको छ ।

केहि महिना अघिदेखिनै आउने अनुमान हुनथालेका यी दुई नयाँ iPhoneहरुलाई iPhone 6 रु iPhone 6+ नाम दिइएको । यी दुई मोडलहरुमा अन्य कुराहरु लगभग सामान्य नै छन् मात्र iPhone 6+ भने अलि ठूलो छ । Appleले त्यस ठूलो स्क्रिनको अन्य प्रयोगहरु सफ्टवेरको माध्यमबाट अझै हुन भने उल्लेख गरेको छ । iOS 8 भएका यी फोनहरुमा विभिन्न फिचरहरु भएतापनि नेपालमा भने धेरै जस्ता विभिन्न कारणले गर्दा प्रयोगमा नआउने वा नचल्ने देखिन्छ ।

जस्तै यी मोडलहरुको एक विशेष फिचर Apple Pay हाल अमेरीकामा मात्र चल्ने छ । जुन पछि विभन्न देशहरुमा विस्तार गरिएता पनि नेपालमा भने यो दशकमा पनि आइपुग्ने देखिदैन । यी बाहेक अरु विभिन्न फिचरहरु पनि फोनमा राम्रो इन्टरनेट बिना नचल्ने हुनाले, नेपालको लागि यी मोडलहरु पनि पहिलेमा smartphoneहरु झैं नाम मात्रको Smart हुनेछन् ।

यी बाहेक Appleले नयाँ घडी पनि आज सार्वजनिक गरेको छ । ३४९ अमेरिकी डलर मोल राखिएको Apple Watch, यस कम्पनीको ठूलो प्रतिद्वंदीको रुपमा चिनिने Samsungको Galaxy Gear सँग धेरै मिल्छ । Appleका प्रयोगकर्ताहरुले ठूलो आश गरेको यस घडीको डिजाइनले गर्दा नै सुरुवात मै धेरैले यसलाई मन नपराएको विभिन्न संचारमाध्यमहरुमा टिप्पनी आउन थालिसकेको छ ।

अन्त्यमा, नेपाली प्रयोगकर्ताको हिसाबले भन्नुपर्दा प्रयोगात्मक हिसाबले यी नयाँ iPhone किन्नुको कुनै अौचित्य देखिदैन । तैपनि देखाउने हिसाबैले भएपनि नेपालमा छिट्टै यी दुई iPhone र घडीको खरिदकर्ताहरु निस्किने पक्का छ ।

यी दुई फोन र घडीबारे अन्य जानकारी :
