लिभरपुलमा दुखेको नेपाली मन

Narayan/Setopati

भूगोल को सिमाना मानव जातिले कोरे पनि मानवियताको भने सिमाना देखिएन। नेपालमा धर्ती काम्दा भूगोलको अर्कै कुनामा बसेको मानव जातिको मुटु दुख्यो। लाखौंलाख विदेशीहरुले नेपालमा राहत पठाउन सुरु गरे। विभिन्न राष्ट्रमा सरकाले नै नेपाल मा सहयोग गर्न आफ्ना देशका नागरिकलाई आव्हान गरे भने कति देशमा नागरिकहरुले आफैं नेपालमा राहत पठाउन कम्मर कसेर लागि परे । बेलायतको एउटा शहर हो लिभरपुलका बासिन्दा पनि चुप रहन सकेनन्। त्यहाँ सानो संख्यामा नेपालीहरु बस्छन्। यहाँ व्यवसायी, प्रोफेसर, विद्यार्थीहरु र केही भूपू गोर्खाहरु बस्छन्। नेपालमा भूकम्प गएपछि लिभरपुलवासीहरु  एकाएक सहयोग गर्न अगाडी बढे। बेलायतमा अभिनेत्री जोहना लुम्लेले एकै दिनमा बेलायतबाट करौडौं रुपैया सङ्कलन गरिन्। त्यति मात्र होइन बेलायत सरकारले पनि सकेको मद्दत गरिराहेको छ। लिभरपुलवासीलाई त्यतिले चित्त बुझेन । उनीहरु अर्को छुट्टै लिभरपुल युनाईट फर नेपाल भन्ने सहयोग  अभियानमा लागिपरे । Continue reading

Addressing an interaction organised at the Osho Shubham Meditation Center in South East London on Friday, General Katawal said interference from international forces in Nepal was inevitable if we couldn’t keep our house in order. “If we could develop our own national security policy, economic policy and political system on the basis of national consensus, no foreign power can dictate us,” he added.

Saying that he was an optimist, General Katawal said he believed that collective wisdom of Nepalese will prevail and Nepal will move towards the path of peace, progress and reconciliation. Continue reading

अन्तरदेशीय अपराधको जालोमा नेपाल – Narayan Adhikari

Transnational crime - Narayan Adhikari
पुस ५ गते थाइल्यान्डको बैंककस्थित एक विश्वविद्यालयमा भएको नेपाली विद्यार्थी अपहरणको घटना सेलाउन नपाउँदै पुसको २१ गते फेरि मनकामना घुम्न आउँदा भारतीय पर्यटक अपहरणमा परे। यी माथिका दुवै घटनामा अन्तरदेशीय अपराध हुन् र दुवै घटनामा नेपाल प्रहरीले सफलता हात पार्न सफल भयो।
सामान्यता अन्तरदेशीय अपराध भन्नाले सीमापार हुने अपराध हो। यो अपराध खासगरी कुनै पनि एउटा देशमा मात्र सिमित नभई अपराधीहरुले एक देशमा बसी अर्को देशमा अपराधिक संगठनको विस्तारै गर्दै घटना घटाउन सक्दछन। हालको दिनहरुमा अन्तरदेशीय अपराधले धेरै देशहरुलाई आक्रान्त पारेको छ। खासगरी मानव बेचबिखन, लागूपदार्थ ओसारपसार, अवैध हतियारको कारोबार, अपहरण र अवैध मुद्रा तस्करी हरु जस्ता अपराधहरु अन्तरदेशीय अपराध भित्र पर्दछन्।
