... तिमीलाई किन उस्तै लाग्दैछ।

 म आकाशमा उड्न खोज्दै थे।
जानी जानीकन अप्ठेरो बाटो रोज्दै थे।।
जिन्दगीको मिठो कल्पना सोच्दै थे।
म आकाशमा उड्न खोज्दै थे।।

"जनताको छोरो पढेपछि..."

समिक्षा लेख: फुर्बा साङ्गे मोक्तान
केहि समय पहिले जब मैले बुद्धिसागरको फिर्फिरे पढिसिध्यए, मनमा कौतुहलता बढिसकेको थियो कि अब कुन साहित्य पढ्ने होला। पुस्तक साहित्यमा पनि प्रायसो जीवनी (autobiography) मा बिशेष  रुचि रहने मलाइ जीवनी नै पढ्ने इच्छा पनि थियो। एसै क्रममा एक दिन मेरो आँखा पत्रिका (कुन हो याद भएन, कान्तिपुर नै हुनुपर्छ। ) को पृष्ठमा ठोक्कियो जहा शिर्षक थियो, "जनताको छोरो" जीवनी रहेछ, पूर्ब प्रधान सेनापति छत्र मान सिङ्ह् गुरुङको। 

मेरा आँखा एकैछिन टक्क अडिए सोच्न नपाउदै निर्णयमा पुगे, अबको पुस्तक यहि हो। बेलुकि लगत्तै भोटाहिटि गएर  किनि पनि हाले तर अपसोच  - दिन सम्म पनि पढ्ने माहोल मिलिरहेको थिएन चौथो दिन चाहि बिहानै शुरु गर्ने निर्णय गरे बसे पढ्न।

Responding Earthquake...Experience sharing by Phurba

(Questions/Answers – by Phurba who is the live witness of Nepal Earthquake-2015 and WASH Relief/Response immediate after upto Recovery Phase (upto Jan. 2016 (Now)))

1. Where were you during the two major earthquakes of April and May?
During the first earthquake, I was in home at Kathmandu, 2nd floor. I had just completed my meal and started to take some rest on bed. During the second quake, I was at Chautara (duty station), Headquarter of Sindhupalchowk for my regular WASH response/relief works, was on the road.

2. What was your first response after the quake?
As earthquake happened, immediately I called to my office supervisor and let him knew that I am safe and with my family, then, sheltered to the safe open land for couple of days. On the third day of earthquake (i.e. on April 27, 2015), I got informed from my senior colleagues that National WASH Cluster meeting is going to happen at Singha Durbar premises (Strategic location of Nepal Government). So, I joined that meeting and shared some remarks regarding the current status of the district based on my communication with the district level colleagues. On the next day, I moved to Chautara (duty Station) with taking responsibility to coordinate/facilitate the WASH relief/responses. Immediate after reaching to Chautara, I met with the Government authority for WASH

करोडौ कस्तुरी: जहाँ मानबरुपी कस्तुरीहरु भौतारिरहेका छन

समिक्षक: फुर्बा सागे मोक्तान 
यो उपन्यास बडो बिम्बित छ, शब्दको अर्थ मात्र हैन भाबलाई पनि उज्ज्वेलित गरेको मैले पाए। कथानक साधारण छ, तर त्यस भित्रको सार भने साच्चै नै असाधारण लाग्यो मलाई। कस्तुरीको भाबको रुपमा मानब भएर जन्मेका हामीहरुलाई हामीभित्रको क्षमता र सम्भावनाको खुलेर एबम कथाहरुलाई जोडेर देखाउन खोजेका छन र सफल पनि भए भन्दा अत्युप्ती नहोला। अपितु यो कथा ति करोडौ मानबरुपी कस्तुरीहरु मात्र नभएर तिन्का माता-पिताहरु प्रती पनि समर्पित छ, जहाँ सैयो पल्ट बाहिरी आबरणको प्रभाबमा आफ्ना केटाकेटीहरुको भित्री "विना"लाई कहिल्ये पनि चिन्ने इच्छ्या ब्यक्त गर्ने मौका दिन सकेनन र जस्को प्रभाबले एउटा सिङगो समाज नै कस्तुरीको भिडमा हराउन खोज्दैछ।

And, along with the temporary shelter he also built the latrine nearby his present shelter.
