In Topic: Yes I pray the cows and monkeys

As Belgium historian Konraad Elst points out, "Muslim fanatics are merely faithful executors of Quranic injunctions. It is not the Muslims who are guilty, but Islam". Thus, the Taliban, who want to restore the early purity of Islam, really thought they were performing a righteous act by destroying the "heathen" Buddhist statues.


Quran:Sura 5:51: O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them for friendship is of them.

I mean to ask ,, why the Holy books of the Islam has to Spread Hate , against other faiths by Name calling ???
Is that the True religion feeling so unsecured , that such things against Jews and Christians were doctrined into the Holy Books ?

I remember the MASJID in Kathmandu on every friday; their numbers are increasing.
NEPAL WILL ONE DAY SUFFER FROM TERRORISM OR WE HAVE TO GIVE IT A SERIOUS THINKING NOW. OH! unfortunately we have the habit of waiting till the tumor becomes cancer and we will have no other option than to suffer AND die.
POLITICIANS ARE SPOILING THE COUNTRY IN THE NAME OF SECULARISM.

The major cause of unrest and massacres in 2008 around the world was due to ISLAM and its terrorism. WHO SAYS THAT ALL THE RELIGIONS TEACHES PEACE? ISLAM TEACHES TERRORISM AND HATE. IF someone wants proof then open and read Quran.
NEPAL WAS A HINDU COUNTRY AND SHOULD REMAIN A HINDU COUNTRY IF PEACE IS DESIRED.

I have heard this news alot. Sad news of course. Hope Nepalese living around the world will find solution to safeguard themself.

One thing that strike my breain and didn't understand was:

Many Nepalese shot dead every year in USA. Just month before Ashok Bhattrai was killed, there was another man who was shot dead but never came on the news. But Ashok Bhattrai's case hit the media in USA and Nepal.

Does anyone know why media is biased? What is special on this particular case?



May be Something is better than nothing.
May be It is better to have atleast one case highlighted than to have zero case highlighted.


Lets think it this way:
Why do you want other cases to be highlighted? Now that we know about the case of Ashok, what good thing did we do with that information/news?
What is the use of such highlight?
This highlight will neither reduce the pain suffered by his parents,family or friends. So this highlight was useless for them.

We nepalese also can not use this highlight as a point to force the government to make some laws and regulations that will protect other nepali students abroad. So it was useless for all the other nepali students studying abroad because their chances to die the death of Ashok are still the same.

I don't know whos eyes were opened by this news/highlight. We nepalese are blind, deaf and sleeping so no matter how many cases are highlighted, no matter how much noise the media makes nobody will wake up from the sleep. We can only do insurgency to bring Girija or Prachanda to power, we can't do something good to help a common man.
May be His death was profitable for few media person.

"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come from the depths of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sands of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action;
Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake."

By - Rabindranath Tagore.

Above lines are impressive and touching. What do you think after read this? You must think but as what you are, from where you are, whom you are....!


Fear is an essential component of all living minds(humans or animals). Those who don't have fear are either dead or they don't have mind at all. As per Arjun in Mahabharata, Bravery is not the absence of fear but it is the realization that there is some thing more important than fear. Brave people also have fear but they still go forward in battle because they think that living a moment of dignity is more important than living a full life of shame. So even the bravest people fear to lose their life and fear is a mandatory emotion of human mind. So I don't agree with Ravindranath Tagore; becaue I believe that there is no place where the mind is without fear.

Knowledge is never and nowhere free. The meaning of knowledge is to know that there is still something beyond the boundry of knowledge. We achieve one frontier of knowledge only to know that there is still a lot to be explored. So knowledge is always bounded by ignorance. When you light a torchlight, there is umbra in the centre and penumbra is surrounding it. So knowledge is like the bright umbra that is always surrounded by dark penumbra of ignorance. Thats why knowledge gives rise to humility.

World has never been broken by narrow domestic walls. This line shows that Ravindranath Tagore's view was very shortsighted. If he could mentally rise up and see the world from a satellite, then he could know that no matter how high a wall people make between themselves,still the earth remains one. For a person who has risen to a great height, the walls disappear. From moon you can see only one earth.

No words come from the depths of truth because at depth there is only silence and peace. Once a man came to Gautam Buddha and asked buddha whether he had seen God or not. He asked Buddha to describe how the GOD looks like? But Buddha remained silent. The man was annoyed and he left the place cursing Buddha as fraud. Buddha later told to his pupil that if that man couldn't understand the meaning of silence, he couldn't understand the meaning of words. He told that whatever a person says about god is all false because god is something who can't be described in words. Nomatter how good you explain about god, it still becomes untrue. Because god can't be bound in words. So god(truth) can be achieved,described or explained only by silence(meditation).

I agreed with Yogesh Jee.

Looking at N Paudel's post, I think you probably have better information than agent in Kathmandu. And you have good background, both work and education so you have nothing to fear.



THANK YOU EVERYBODY.

Happy Vijayadashami and Dipawali to all of you.

I got an unconditional offer letter for MSc in Subsea engineering. I am currently looking for information about this course and its scope(job-wise) in uk. Someone please help me!


Congratulation, Engineering in Strthclyde is best recognised. It is a very good department. I have got copuple of friends who did their Masters and Ph.D from there and are now teaching in good universities in UK an some are working in the industry. I am not from enginering, so i wouldn't be able to tell you about course and in more detail about the job prospects. But I have seen good product from there.



Thank you very much. As per your advice I applied myself without any agent and got the offer. But to apply for visa, I think that I have to take an agent. What do you think? Is it tough to get visa? I have also applied to Dundee and is waiting for their decision. In case I will get an offer from Dundee also, what to do?

Now,since I have already got the offer, so I want to try for getting some financial assistance(atleast partial) from the university. How should I proceed for it? Please advise.
