You Don’t Have to Agree with Someone’s Opinion to Defend Their Freedom of Speech

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Difference of opinion should NOT stop one from fighting for the freedom of speech of another individual, as long as they exercise that right civilly, observing all the decorums expected of them in social discourses.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Life is life, regardless of nationality, religion, skin color or any trait you want to name. And suffering does not discriminate. But to social and other media, the value of life appears to depend on one or combination of traits, such as nationality and religion.

Kathmandu: Driving and Parking Nepal

(No) Parking in Kathmandu!

Reading Time: 6 minutes

It’s time that we held our leaders, our government, driving our country backwards and parking our country where they personally benefit from, accountable to us. Kathmanduites, side with the the rest of the population and honk at the leaders prodding them to steer the country in the direction that benefits us all, not just them.
