Violence against Women (VAW): Linkages with Equity and Health

(Collection of Case Studies)
In 1993 the United Nations offered the first official definition of such violence when the General Assembly adopted the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women to Article 1 of the declaration, violence against women includes: “Any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivations of liberty, whether occurring in public or private life.” 

There is increasing consensus, as reflected in many declarations, that abuse of women and girls, regardless of where and how it occurs, is best understood within a “gender” framework
because it seems in part from women’s and girls’ subordinate status in society. Many cultures have beliefs, norms, and social institutions that legitimize and therefore perpetuate violence against women. Two of the most common forms of violence against women are abuse by intimate male partners and coerced sex, also known as domestic violence, wife-beating, and battering is almost always accompanied by psychological abuse and in one-quarter to one-half of cases by forced sex as well.
Around the world at least one woman in every three has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime. Most often the abuser is a member of her own family.

Increasingly, gender-based violence is recognized as a major public health concern and a violation of human rights. The effects of violence can be devastating to a woman’s reproductive health as well as to other aspects of her physical and mental well-being. In addition to causing injury, violence increases women’s long-term risk of a number of other health problems. Yet victims of violence who seek care from health professionals often have needs that providers do not recognize, do not ask about, and do not know how to address.

गोर्खाल्यान्ड आन्दोलन सन्दर्भमा: मेरो बिचार

लेख: फुर्बा साङ्गे मोक्तान 
मलाई पनि लागेकै हो, अरुको बिषयमा किन बोल्ने? तर आज संसार नै ग्लोबलाईजेसनमा गैसक्यो। राम बहादुरको पिडा, श्याम बहादुरलाई तत्कालै थाहा हुने सम्यन्त्रको बिकास पनि भाईसक्याछ। 

हाम्रो चस्माको लेन्स कस्तो भईदियो भने आफुले जे देख्यो, त्यही मात्र सही। अनि, ठूला बडाले जे भन्यो त्यही ठीक। नराम्रो लाई पनि राम्रोसग नराम्रो भन्न नसक्ने अनि सहीलाई पनि खुलेर समर्थन गर्न नसक्ने। छेपारे पाराको। अनि हरेक बोलिमा लेनदेन अनि फाईदा-बेफाईदाको नजरिया समाबिष्ट हुने। सिधा भन्नुपर्दा हाम्रो नजरमा खोट छ।  हामी लन्डनमा ५ जनाको ज्यान जाने गरी भएको बम आक्रमणलाई रुवाबासी कोलाहल गर्छौ, तर इराकमा, अफगानिस्तानमा मिसाइल आक्रमणलाई खुल्ला स्विकार गर्छौ। दुबैतिरको आफ्नो लजिक होला। तर दुख्ने मन त दुबै अवस्थामा दुख्नु पर्ने होला नि? कसैले आएर तपाईंको घरमा आएर बल प्रयोग गरे के गर्नुहुन्छ? के धुप अगरबत्तीले स्वागत गर्नुहुन्छ? कसैले तपाईंको आत्मसम्मानलाई ठेस पुर्याउछ भने स्विकरोक्ती नै दिएर बस्नुहुन्छ? दमनलाई स्वागत गर्ने तपाईं हामीले याद गर्नु पर्छ, भोली तपाईं हाम्रै पालो आउछ।

गोर्खाल्यान्ड आन्दोलन चलिरहदा दुई बिषयले प्रबेश पाएको छ। पहिलो, गोर्खाल्यान्ड आन्दोलनलाई नेपालको मधेसी आन्दोलनसगको तुलना भने दोस्रो, गोर्खा भन्ने शब्द नेपालको भएकोले गोर्खाल्यान्ड शब्द प्रतिको असन्तुष्टी। दार्जलिङको गोर्खाल्यान्डको मुद्धा नितान्त भारतको हो, यदी देशलाई मात्र आधार मान्ने हो भने। उनिहरुलाई भारतीय हुनुमा गर्ब छ, र हुनु पनि पर्छ। तर त्यो भन्दैमा कसैको पिडामा मलम्पट्टीको दुई शब्द नि खर्च गर्न नमिल्ने हो र? मानबहरुलाई मानबिय ब्यवहार गरी सहभागितामुलक हल निकल्नुको साटो भएको दानबी दमनको बिरोध गर्नु गलत हो र? बरु बहुभाषिक र बहुजातिय समाजमा एउटै मात्र भाषालाई लागेर अरुमाथि दमन गर्नु र गर्न खोज्नु चाँही अपराध हो। हो मलाई दुखेको छ। तराईको रामलाल माथि दमन हुँदा पनि यो म दुखेको थियो भने दार्जलिङको रामबहादुर माथि सरकारी गुण्डाहरुको ज्यादती हुँदा पनि यो मन दुखेको छ। किनकी मानबिय सम्बेदना छन मभित्र।

मनसुन:समिक्षा गर्नुपर्दा

लेख: फुर्बा साङ्गे मोक्तान
[पुस्तक समिक्षा]
केही असाधारण, केही अपूर्ण अनि केही असन्तुष्टीका बिच सकियो, मनसुन। उपन्यास सुरुवात सगैको रोचकता, अघी बढेसगै मौनता, बिचमा मादकता नथपिएको भने पक्कै हैन। तर अन्तिममा पुग्दा पात्रभित्रको पिडा अनि कथाको अन्त्यको अपूर्णताले मनमा सिङ्गौरी खेल्न छोडेन। पात्रप्रतिको सहानुभुति भनौ वा समर्पण, अन्त्यलाई बियोगान्तको रुपमा देखिए पनि यसबाट नयाँ जीवनको उत्घाटन भने अवश्यै होला।

हाम्रा रामहरुलाई बनबास जान वाध्य नपार सरकार

लेख: फुर्बा साङ्गे मोक्तान 
भन्ने गरिन्छ नि, अरुको पिडा देख्दा र त्यो पिडा आँफैले भोग्दा कती फरक पर्छ? हो त्यही पिडा बिचबाट गुज्रदैछु म। जीवनको परिभाषा पनि परिस्थिती अनुसार फरक पर्छ भनिन्थ्यो, अनुभूत हुँदैछ। म जीवनप्रति फेरि आशाबादी पनि छु है। आजको दिनसम्म मैले भोगेको जीवनमा कति सानातिना महाभारत र रामायाण गुज्रेहोलान, तैपनि जीवनको अनेक रसायनमा पनि मिठासता खोज्ने बानी परेकै मान्छे हुँ म। 

तर किन हो आज आँफैलाई बनबासको अनुभुति पो हुँदैछ त? प्रसँग बुझ्नु भो भएन? खाडीको तातो गर्मी खाँदै एकाङ्की जीवन बिताउनेको लागि त यो जेल नै पनि बन्न सक्ला। समस्टिमा जो आफ्नोको साथबाट र मामताको काखबाट टाढा दुरदराजको कुनै देशमा छ, चाहे कामका लागि , जाउ, चाहे नामका लागि जाउ, अनि  चाहे शिक्षा, दिक्षा र भिक्षाकै लागि किन नजाउ, आखिर बनबास भन्दा के कम छ र?

Population Explosion: Global trend prospects

Written by: Phurba Sange Moktan

Since the history of the human population, population growth has become the key concern among human. During the early phase of human history, the human population was up to the subsistence level. However, with the timeline in the later phases (i.e. after 17th century), the human population has hiked in such a way that population exploded beyond the subsistence level. And, the trends have been emerging.

Here I would like to mention the key factors which have played much to control birth rate in the developed countries are due to aspiration towards the prosperous life of the people and due to urbanization in the developed countries. People choose to get married later and want to take less burden of their children that has directly affected their aspiration and security of lifestyle, as a result, the population is decreasing whereas in developing countries such as Bangladesh, India, Nepal, etc. the aspiration is less due to less education and empowerment level. In addition, majority of the rural population and uneducated mass of the people has less aspiration for growing fewer children. Also, due to less urbanization, they have less mobility, resulting the feeling of low fertility is not so much felt to be required. And, they are contributing to increase the everlasting population explosion.

बङ्लादेशबाट जे सिक्न सकिन्छ

लेख: फुर्बा साङ्गे मोक्तान
(बङ्लादेश् डायरी )
बङ्लादेश भन्ने शब्द मेरो दिमागमा बङगालको खाडीमा गएर जोडिन्थ्यो, जब सम्म मैले बङ्लादेशमा पाइला हालिन। बङ्लादेशसगको मेरो परिचय बस तेती नै थियो। तर आज परीचय बद्लिएको महसुस हुँदैछ।

दोस्रो विश्वयुद्धको अन्त्यसगै जब देश्हरु स्वतन्त्र हुँदै गए, भारत पनि इङ्गल्यान्डको उपनिबेशबाट मुक्त हुँदै स्वतन्त्र हुन पुग्यो, सन १९४७ मा। स्वतन्त्रताको गतिलो स्वाद चाख्न नपाउदै हिन्दू र मुसल्मानबिच बिभक्त भएर हिन्दूस्तान (भारत) र पाकिस्तानमा टुक्रा हुनपुग्यो। जसमा पश्चिम पाकिस्तान अहिलेको पाकिस्तान हो भने पुर्बी पाकिस्तान अहिलेको बङ्लादेश। तर भारतबाट पाकिस्तान छुट्टीदा बङ्लादेश बनेको हैन रहेछ, यो देश पाकिस्तान छुट्टीएको पनि करिब १५ बर्षपछी सन १९७१ मा स्वतन्त्रताको ९ महिने भीषण युद्धपछी बनेको मुलुक रहेछ।
