With the increasing number of expats in the country and higher than that the number of people going out of the country mostly for the job and the education, makes it difficult to evaluate and understand the Cost of Living Index (CoLI) in Nepal. With some third party figures, we provide some of the comparative indicators of Cost of Living Indices in Nepal.
Machhapuchhre (माछापुछ्रे), the Fishtail Mountain vibrantly seen from Pokhara, lies in the Annapurna Himalayan Range (Coordinates 28°29′42″N 83°56′57″E). I tried to cover some photographs of this mountain from my home in Pokhara last October-November over an entire range of the month, but since winter had just started there were many days when the beauty of the Himalayas could not be seen.
Trivia: Machhapuchhre is the only mountain in Nepal which is not allowed for conquering!
Day 1: Machhapuchhre looks awesome, maybe I’ve been watching at this beauty after a long time. Whatever, Fishtail is always enchantable to most of us. Below is the typical picture of how it is seen from almost all homes in Pokhara city.
Facebook has been virally implementing places in almost every possible modules in the site after purchase a location-based social network site Gowalla this week. The check-in feature in Facebook is the one to go virtual after its availability in the mobile version of the social site Facebook including the touch edition of the same. But does this have real effect in Nepalese business?
The new facebook timeline gives its user ability to add-in life events like a dairy, the places module in which gives all your stories about location, where one has lived, how many trips covered. Plus geo-location based photos is what Facebook has been focusing now. Time and again it is asking me “You have been to Pattaya on …. have you taken this photo there?” awesome… it looks like. Since many of the photos are already meta GPS coordinates embedded (not a good word for this for sure), Facebook can automatically determine the place, but asking user to verify is surely a good thing.
This screenshot from Facebook places show stories on places shared, places lived and other location based life event, followed by the photos taken at various places.
For last few days, it has been raining non-intermittently in the valley of Pokhara. The Monsoon madness has already shown the impacts to people. Landslides, floods and erosion are inevitable during Monsoon in Nepal from April till October. This cause lots of loss of life and property in our country annually. We just pretend to be watching or hearing the news rather than acting as always; however the Government should not be putting oil in its ears and eyes during such natural calamities. Continue reading
The chapter with WRC should have been virtually over by now, though theoretically. It seems like the clinging of the herbs and shrubs on the auras of Pokhara – for a prudency that seeks the thought. More than 54 months passed (it might reach as much as 56 or even higher) but the sense with the chiller morning in WRC has remained even like chillier part of everyday fried C Mo:Mo – the favorite fast food that became during the study.

फेरी पनि नेपाल बन्द कस्तो मज्जा है!
माओवादीको नागरिक सर्वोचताको लागि नेपाल बन्ध रे!
नेपालबन्दको हार्दिक मंगलमय शुभकामना
बल्ल बन्द भयो, तैपनि अफिस जानैपर्ने है

Well, it has been a long go that Nepal Telecom (NTC) announced availability of ADSL, supposedly a faster and cheaper broadband solution in Nepal. Alas, I’m with a poor heart to write on another Pokhara as a monopolistic city, but this time it’s Internet. Hope so. Read this article, this is rather interesting.
