Nepal boys are making BIKES. what?

Nepali boys actually made a bike, Gongabu Choppers:

Think again. All you need to do is create your own opportunity. It does not matter which part of the world you are in Kirtan Bhandari and Sunil Maharjan has proved that nothing is impossible if one has the knack for something. Kirtan has designed and Sunil and his coworker Ram Krishana assembled bike, which sure to make any one turn when it zooms by.

“I wanted to inspire other youngsters they need not go abroad to find their dreams. They can make it come true in their own country” says Bhandari. He completed his Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering form Bangalore. Bhandari came back to Nepal and tired his hands at different jobs. “I worked at a few places but could not get the kind of job satisfaction I wanted. I wanted to do something on my own so I started working on this bike. I wanted to create something that wasn’t available in Nepal. It does not mean that I want to compete with imported bikes but I just wanted to something different for people who have a passion for bikes says Bhandari.”

ग्राहक ठगी योजना

The black market thing is running huge in Nepal, but no government seems seeing it at all. Most of all sectors have been affected from fuel to foods to daily consumed products to NOW Mobile Re-Charge Cards.

On every mobile recharge cards its Retail price is written. As in Rs.50 MeroMobile Recharge Card its retail price is written as Rs.51. But we, the consumers are made to pay Rs.55. What is consumers associations or other government people doing? Are they blind or dead? Or are such illegal stuffs going to stay longer in Nepal?

Now consumers need to be aware of the fact that getting anything at its final Retail Price is their right. And those buyers also need to know that selling products on higher price is illegal and can take them to JAIL.

When are the government bodies going to wake up?

Miss Nepal Vs Maoist Party


Maoist has always protest against Miss Nepal, calling it against Nepali Women Rights and Self-Respect. But we challenge the same party leader, Hisila Yami. Wear a nepali national dress, gunyo choli. Or just tell your party people to keep their mouth shut.

Picture Speaks - चितवन को ट्राफिक



ट्राफिक र प्रहरीको दशैं सुरु भयो


हिन्दुहरुको महान चाड, दशैं हरेक वर्षधुमधामका साथ मनाइन्छ । यो कुनै नौलो कुरा होइन, तर यो सुन्दा अचम्म लाग्न सक्छ कि केहि नेपालीहरु दशैं सुरु हुन महिना दिन अघि नै यो पर्व मनाउन थाल्छन् ।
दशैं पर्व कुन महिनामा पर्छ र मनाइन्छ सबैलाई अवगत नै छ तर केहि दिन यतादेखि चितवनको शहर नारायणगढमा, हरेक बेलुकीको समयमा ट्राफिकहरु र प्रहरीहरु मिलिजुली दशैं मनाउन थालेका छन् । दिनभर खोज्दा पनि नभेटिनेहरु बेलुकीको समयमा भने शहिदचोकको बीचमा भेला भई हरेक मोटरर्साईकलको चालकको हेलमेट र लाईसन हेर्नमा व्यस्त देखिन्थे ।

हेलमेट वा लाईसन नभएकालाई कसैलाई रसिद काट्ने त कसैसँग कुनातिर गएर गफगाफ भने कहिलाई माथिबाट आदेश आएकोले छोड्नुपर्ने वाध्यता सबै हाम्रो आँखा अगाडी । यो बारे हामी बोल्दैनौ, तस्वीरहरु बोल्छन् ।

एकजना ट्राफिकलाई हामीले सोध्यौं पनि, ''किन यति राती राती चेकिङ ?'' उत्तर आयो, ''दुर्घटनाबाट बच्न ।''त्यसो भए के राती मात्र दुर्घटना हुन्छ त ? दिनको समयमा दुर्घटना हुँदा ब्याक गरेर मान्छे मार्दा कहाँ हुन्छन् त ट्राफिकहरु ? कि ट्राफिकको काम राती ९ बजे पछि मात्र सुरु हुन्छ ? कि गणतान्त्रिक नेपालमा पनि तलब पकाउने तरिका यथावत रहेको हो ? खै सरकार कहाँ छ ? कुनै नेताहरुलाई मन्त्रालय बाहेक अरु कुरा दिमागमा आउँछ ?

के यहि हो नँया नेपाल ?

Protest Against Miss Nepal - But why?


It was quiet surprising news to hear that Miss Nepal event couldn't take place as announced by the organisers, The Hidden Treasure. It was due to a very simple reason, because of the protestors ready to shut it down if it happened. As per the protestors, such events shouldn't be organised in Nepal because of its vulgarity, its against our social issues and various other factors.
But we have something to say to them, If you call Miss Nepal a vulgar event, what to you call semi-nude modellings in various top nepali websites? Aren't they vulgar? Aren't they against their social factors? Where are you people when so called nepali models are posing almost nude in various popular nepali websites like cybersansar.com, pokharacity.com, thikthak.com, ekantipur.com and more? Why don't try stop such vulgarity first?

We bet Miss Nepal has never been an event with models of 2 piece swimsuits like those in websites? So, why are protestors against it? If you think Miss Nepal should be banned, protest against website with so called models posing semi-nude first.

How to Tell a Girl You Love Her Anonymously

Do you want to tell a girl your feelings, but not want her to know it's you? Here's what to do.

Steps

  • Send her some flowers, or a stuffed animal with a note or card, reading something along the lines of, "From your secret admirer," or, "You are always beautiful." If it sounds too cheesy to you, you get the point; just be sweet.
  • Use your talents to your advantage. If you're an artist, paint her a little keepsake, to secretly put somewhere, where she is sure to find it.
  • Put a note in her locker, etc., telling her to listen to a certain radio station, and about what time to listen. call the radio station and request a song for her, from you, the anonymous guy that loves her.
  • Write her a poem, or a heartfelt love letter. You can also sneak ways to say "Happy Birthday," or "Congratulations," or whatever occasion you wish to celebrate, to let her know you care. Drop it into her locker, or on her desk, or wherever you are.

Tips

  • After a while, if not right away, she is going to become very curious as to who her secret admirer is. So, you may have to come clean, especially if you want to have a relationship with her.
  • Don't overdo it. One or two letters or gifts (nothing too extravagant either) are more than enough. If you overdo it, rather than being curious the object of your affections is likely to become creeped out.

Warnings

  • Stalking is never good, if she catches you stalking her, you will ruin any relationship that you may have had with her. You might even wind up in jail if you do this frequently.
  • Make sure that the reason you're keeping your affections anonymous is because you want to be coy and playful and not because you think she wouldn't be interested. If you think the latter is more likely, then you should under no circumstances attempt to win her over this way. You are probably right, that she wouldn't like you anyway, and you should instead try to become friends with her with the intention of parlaying that into a future relationship.

Watching KAGBENI via Internet

It was something we were sure of when Quest Entertainment released Kagbeni's DVD. And in no time, it happened. Kagbeni is now on YOUTUBE, World's Most Popular Video Broadcasting website. So, where are those fighting against piracy???

With nepali music and film industry suffering the most with piracy, it now seems that internet is yet another biggest threat. Less than a month of the release of Kagbeni DVD, it on the internet to be watched for free.

Now the question is what will production houses be doing to get rid of it.

Here are some clips posted by Youtube User: Proud2bnepali.

नेपाली चलचित्र - एक विश्लेषण


सन् पचासको दशक आईपुग्दा जहाँ भारतीय चलचित्रको सुरुवात हुन लागेको मात्र थियो, तब पहिलो नेपाली चलचित्रको प्रदर्शन भएको थियो । तर २०६४ साल सम्म आईपुग्दा जहाँ भारतीय चलचित्रले अन्तराष्ट्रिय उचाई छोईसकेका थिए, नेपालमा भने अझै पनि गुणस्तरिय चलचित्र बन्न सकेको थिएन ।
वि.स.२००८ साल, भाद्र २९ गते शुक्रवारको दिन नेपाली चलचित्रको क्षत्रमा सुर्योदय भएको थियो । यसै दिन भारतको कलकत्ताबाट भएको लगानीमा डि. बि. परियारको चलचित्र "सत्य हरिशचन्द्र" को प्रदर्शन भएको थियो । त्यस बेला भारतिय चलचित्र र नेपाली चलचित्रको प्रविधि लगभग उस्तै थियो । त्यसपछि, नेपाली चलचित्र निर्माण लगभग १३ वर्षठप्प रह्यो र पछि आएर २०२१ साल भाद्र २२ गते बुधवारको दिन नेपालकै लगानीमा पहिलो चलचित्र "आमा" निर्माण भयो जुन बेलासम्म भारतीय चलचित्र पनि श्याम स्वयत नै थियो र प्राविधिक हिसाबले पनि केहि परिवर्तन आएको थिएन । तर चलचित्र निर्माणको क्रममा भारतीय चलचित्रकर्मीहरु जहाँ गुणस्तरीय चलचित्र निर्माणमा ध्यान दिन थाले, नेपाली चलचित्रकर्मीहरु भने संख्यात्मक रुपमा धेरै चलचित्र निर्माण तिर लागे ।


वर्षथपिदैं जाँदा, संख्यात्मक रुपमा नेपाली चलचित्रको निर्माण हुनथाल्यो तर गुणस्तर भने जहाँको त्यहि रह्यो । पछि २०४२ साल देखि २०५१ साल सम्म कथित स्वणिम युगको बेला भने केहि प्राविधिक रुपमा नभएपनि विषय वस्तुको आधारमा नेपाली चलचित्रहरुमा केहि नयाँपन देखिएता पनि उल्लेखनिय रुपमा यो लामो समयसम्म रहेन । स्मरण रहोस् सो समयमा अत्याधिक चर्चित र २५ हप्ता चलेर त्यसबेला रेकड कायम गर्न सफल तुल्सी घिमिरेको निर्देशनमा बनेको "कुसुमे रुमाल" त्यति बेलाकै हिन्दी चलचित्र "मिलन"को साभारित अंश हो । यस्तै साभार गर्ने प्रवृति र अदक्ष-अन्पढहरुको भिड ओर्इर्र्रएकोले नेपाली चलचित्र क्षेत्रले कुनै फड्को मार्न सकेन । कथित स्वणिर्म युगमा अत्याधिक सफल मानिएकी नायिका करिश्मा मानन्धर चलचित्र क्षेत्रमा लाग्नु अघि गार्मेन्टमा काम गर्दथिइन् र उनले कक्षा ८ सम्म पढेकी थिइन् । यसै युगमा उनी जस्तै चलचित्रको बारेमा शुन्य ज्ञान भएकाहरुको अर्को भीड ओईरिने क्रम जारी रह्यो । देखासिकिको भरमा क्यामेराम्यान, नायक, नायिका, निर्देशक आदिको जन्मले नेपाली चलचित्र क्षेत्र अझै सेलाउँदै गयो ।


पछि चलचित्र "युग देखि युगसम्म" बाट यस क्षेत्रमा नयाँ आशा जन्मियो, जो थिए राजेश हमाल । त्यस बेला यदि राजेश हमालले चाहेका भए नेपाली चलचित्र क्षेत्रमा साँचो रुपमा सुनौलो युग आउन सक्थ्यो तर त्यसबेलाका एक मात्र पढेलेखेका नायक राजेश हमालले आफू चिच्याए चलचित्र हिट हुने फर्मुला मै चित्त बुझाए । गुणस्तरिय चलचित्रलाई प्राथमिक्ता दिएर नेपाली चलचित्रलाई माथि लैजानु कता हो कता पैसाको लोभमा कुकुरलाई भन्दा ५० हजार कम पारिश्रमिकमा पनि चलचित्र खेल्न उनी पछि परेनन् ।


अहिले कहि वर्षयता, नेपाली चलचित्र क्षेत्रमा नायक नायिकाहरु आफै चलचित्र बनाउने, हल मालिकहरु आफै चलचित्रमा लगानि गर्ने आफ्नै हालमा प्रदर्शन गर्ने,सुटिङ्गका सामान ओसार्नेहरु हावाको भरमा निर्देशक आदिको प्रचलन बढ्दो छ । कथावस्तु कता कता, १० तल्ला घरबाट हाम्फालेको, हेलिकप्टरबाट हाम्फालेको, बढि अङ्ग प्रदर्शन भएको जस्ता कुराहरुको सहायताले चलचित्रहरुको प्रचारप्रसार हुन्छ । अर्कातिर नेपाली चलचित्रकर्मीहरुसँग "किन नेपाली चलचित्र क्षेत्रमा गुणस्तरिय हिसाबले प्ररिवर्तन आउन नसकेको" भन्ने प्रश्नमा लगभग सबै नेपाली चलचित्रकर्मीहरु एउटै उत्तर दिन्छन् कि "भारतिय चलचित्रको झैं करोडौंको लगानि हुँदैन र त्यस्तो प्रविधि हामीसँग छैन" । के यो साँच्चै त्यस्तै हो त ?


नेपाली चलचित्र बन्ने पैसामा संसारका विभिन्न साना राष्ट्रहरुमा गुणस्तरिय चलचित्र बन्छन् र अर्कातिर भारतिय चलचित्रमा प्रयोग हुने ३५ एम एम को चलचित्र प्रविधिमा नेपाली चलचित्रहरु पनि बन्न थालेका छन्, तर खै त राम्रो नेपाली चलचित्र बन्न सकेको - यसले यो र्छलङ्ग हुन्छ कि नेपाली चलचित्रमा परिवर्तन आउन नसकेको अदक्ष चलचित्रकर्मीको भिडले नै हो र यहि भिडको वाहुलियताले चलचित्र क्षेत्रमा लाग्न चाहेका दक्ष जनशक्तिलाई पनि टिक्न नदिन प्रवृति गुणस्तर खस्किनुको अर्को कारण हो ।
हाल आएर नेपाली चलचित्र क्षेत्रमा अन्तराष्ट्रिय स्तरको हाई डेफिनिसन प्रविधि पनि भित्रिएको छ जुन चित्र र ध्वनि दुवैमा अत्याधिक गुणस्तरीय छ तर खैत अझै स्तरिय चलचित्र बनेको ? नयाँ प्रविधि प्रयोग भएको चलचित्र, कागबेनीको प्रविधि बाहेक अरु केहि राम्रो छ र ? कथा वस्तु र प्रस्तुतीकरणको हिसाबले यो चलचित्र भन्दा धेरै राम्रा नेपाली चलचित्रहरु दर्शकहरुले पाईसकेका छन् । कागबेनी नेपालमा नचलेको तथ्यले यो पुष्टि गर्छ कि हिमाल पहाडहरु मात्र खिचेर, बिना कुनै प्रस्तुतीकरण चलचित्र बन्दैन । भविष्यको नेपाली चलचित्रमा हाई डेफिनिसन प्रविधिले अवश्य ठूलो भुमिका खेल्नेछ तर यदि चलचित्रका अन्य पक्षहरुलाई कागबेनीले झैं बेवास्ता गरिन्छ भने नेपाली दर्शकहरुको स्तरिय चलचित्रहरु हेर्ने सपना सपनै हुनेछ ।

अर्कातिर, चलचित्र सम्वन्धी पढ्न विदेशीएका नयाँ पुष्ताहरुलाई नेपालमा आएर गुणस्तरीय चलचित्र बनाउने मौका पनि अहिलेका अदक्ष चलचित्रकर्मीहरुको भिडले त्यति सजिलै दिने सम्भावना अवश्य छैन । जस अन्तरगत अदक्षहरु हलका मालिकहरुसँग मिलेर गुणस्तरीय चलचित्र प्रदर्शन हुनै नदिने एक उदाहरणको रुपमा देखापर्न सक्छ । यदि नेपाली चलचित्रमा यस्तै प्रथाले निरन्तरता पाउने हो भने, नेपाली चलचित्र क्षेत्रको भविष्य अन्धकार छ ।


गुणस्तरीय र राम्रो नेपाली चलचित्रलाई माया गरौं ।

Royalty For Not Singing

Nepali songs have been sounding like sound of scratches since few years. With horribly singing talents budding every day with their albums, good music is almost dead. So, what could the solution for all this ?We came up with an idea that could help music lovers to get into serious good music only.It's - "PAY FOR NOT SINGING".

Here are few artists we would pay money as royalty if they stop singing and never do that again:

ABHINASH GHIRSING
AAGANTUK KHAREL
KAMAL MAN SINGH
NIRNAYA SHRESTHA
PUJA RAI
RAM LAXMAN
SUDEEP GIRI
SARUN (THE UGLYZ)


If you have any other artist's name that could be added on the list please comment on this article below with their name.

Yamaha R1 150cc - गरिहाल्यो नि advance booking !

One of the most awaited bikes in Nepal, Yamaha R15 finally hits the market. Before this, Yamaha R1 was showcased round the country, and dealers were conveying message that Yamaha R15 150cc will be a R1 replica. Giving a glance at the 1000cc, thousands of nepali mostly teenagers advanced booked the R1 150. But now they have realized that it was their foolishness.
Yamaha R15 turned out to be far worse than expected. Such bikes here in Nepal are called Fuchche Bike - Smaller in Height, Smaller in Length. Many of them who have booked earlier for it are regreting and are not willing to buy it. This may cost them few thousand rupees but they are willing to give up.


Here's a closer look on the Yamaha R15:



Sano Sansar - Sano Acting, Sano Music, Sano Creativity, Sano Parda Ko Lagi Thik

Promoted as the Nepal's second HD movie, sano sansar seems won't work with the Nepali audience. Produced by same production house that did Kagbeni, Quest Entertainment are looking helpless in their effort to make a good new generation movie.


With release of the audio album of the movie and few music videos out of television channels, SANO SANSAR has shown almost half of their work, which seems its NOT GOOD. The actors on videos still look more like music video models without any expressions than actresses. On the other hand, leaving one or two, rest of other numbers sound too bad for your ears.


In video clips taken from the movie and kept on the music videos, most of them still have no expression. So what do they call it - modelling or acting ? If they say its a pure acting then, so called qualityless nepali film industry have excellent actors then in Sano Sansar.


Those getting involved in the next gen nepali movies should realized that, whether its an HD or 16mm, only good movie works. And just a High Definition camera doesn't make a good movie. Since, movie making is a team effort, every single member in that team should be a perfectionist to finally come out with something good.


And lastly, We hope to see no more movies directed by Alok Nemang, because even few movie shots of the music in the music video proves that he isn't yet ready to direct a movie. So, Mr. director, keep your work limited to the small screen.
