Last January I decided to drastically cut down on my social media activism in Nepal. Additionally, I also decided to cull my Facebook friend list and make my Facebook posts viewable only by friends. Four months later, I came across yet another reason to do that.
Video of my presentation at UWC-Second-Saturday-at-Six gathering in Boston last February in which I describe why I do what I do for the education of the marginalized in Nepal and the impact of the April and May 2015 earthquakes on the schools COMMITTED works with in Sindhupalchok.
Here's how details of my incarceration in a Qatari jail on May 1, 2013 and the Free Dorje Gurung campaign unfolded on my Facebook Timeline.
When you need to know...when you have to know....
Video of April 2014 Rosenfield Program presentation at Grinnell College. It covers the plight of marginalized groups, such as Dalits, women, Tharus and Tamangs both in the country and abroad, and what COMMITTED is doing about it all.
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.
Additionally, the suffering of some are more of a suffering than those of others. Not to me.
And, what's more, some believe that ones pain and suffering can be alleviated by causing pain and suffering to others. I don't.
