Lost & Found

Bhim Shumsher JBR (center) and other Ranas

I found this photo on my way to office, lying on the road and was full of dust. As my eyes fell upon it, I picked it up hurriedly and wiped the dust with my hand as I was curious to see the people on the photo. I hardly could make a guess that the photo must have been of Nepali soldiers. I was so happy as if I found valuable thing and showed it to my colleagues, contrary they took it lightly. In the evening when I reached home after office, I showed it to Kamal, he was as much excited as I was. We both tried to figure out who might they could be, and when that photo might have been taken? Some days passed by in our curiosity. Suddenly one day we thought to forward the photo to Vintage Nepal to post in their FB page. As they had been posting such photos in their timeline. Kamal sent scanned copy to them. They were able to find out the people on the photo and the year photo was taken.  It was taken in 1930 AD. And people in the photo were- Then Prime Minister Bhim Shumsher JBR (center) and other Ranas, including Padma Shumsher JBR and Juddha Shumsher JBR. And hence our curiosity came to an end. I thought it's worth sharing with you guys. 
Below is the link where you can see the photo in Vintage Nepal’s FB page.

Thank you.
God Bless :)

Into the Nature



Gosaikunda Lake situated in Langtang National Park in Rasuwa Nepal
Frozen Gosainkunda
Gosainkunda is a sacred Hindu and Buddhist religious site. I am not much aware of Buddhist mythologies and inscriptions but many Hindu mythologies attribute Gosainkunda as the abode of Hindu deities Lord Shiva and Goddess Parbati.  Many Hindu purans and epics like Ramayan and Maharatbharat refer to Samundra Manthan, which is directly related to the origin of Goshainkunda. Its holy water is considered of particular significance during Gangadashahara, which takes place in Jestha (second month of Nepali Calendar) and the sacred thread festival Janai Purnima, in Bhadra (5th month of Nepali Calendar) when thousands of hindu pilgrims visit the area. Gosainkunda is believed to have formed from the digging of the land by the Trishul of lord Shiva after he drank the poison from Samundra Manthan and desperately wanted cold water to quench the overwhelming heat.
Gosainkunda is not only famous for religious purpose but also is one of the most attractive trekking routes for tourists visiting Nepal. It attracts tourists with its natural beauty and diversity. It falls under the Langtang National Park, which is also the habitant of the most endangered Red Panda.

Lucks!


A friend, a sister, a teacher, a student always loving and rarely irritating is LUCKS. Her name is not LUCKS actually; it is given name to her by me. Today is her birthday and I thought of wishing her in a different way. Here comes a big warm hug and a very special birthday wish for my special Lucks. Happy Birthday darling. You were always so close to heart and will remain so. The only difference is that I am not able to spend as much time as before with you. I had great time being with you for more than two years. You were always there for me in my ups and downs. You always had been my strength. We shared secrets and had same opinion about life, love, family and friends. It amuses me even today that how my sayings, feeling and opinions inspired you always. I must agree that you were a good student and at the same time you were my teacher. I learnt many lessons about life from you. Lucks I am getting too emotional now, do not know what to write more about you. Even now, while I am typing this I am smiling, thinking about you.

Gardening in Winter

In the hustle and bustle of urban life, your garden is the place where you have contact with nature and enjoy some quiet and peaceful time. Therefore, it deserves special attention in terms of dedication and constant maintenance, to make it a welcoming sanctuary in every season including winter. 
Keeping the freshness and greenness of one’s garden in foggy, frosty, cold winter is a big challenge for anybody. Plants are also living things: they suffer the winter like any of us do. In the absence of proper care and nourishment, the gardens would be lifeless in winter. Many people ignore their garden in the winter. The feeling is that, once the flowers fade and the leaves die, there is nothing of interest in the garden. Nothing could be further from the truth. With all the work you do to keep your garden beautiful and attractive from spring to autumn, why let your garden die down in winter? Against the harsh backdrop of dew, fog and earth, you can plant a variety of plants that will add dimension to your garden. By selecting proper winter

A letter to Black Rose


A year come and goes by. We make friends, we apart from them with passage of time, with changes in preferences. And I believe every friend who comes to be part in our life, builds a special compartment for them in our heart that nor it is collapsible neither replaceable. They stay there forever in the form of sweet memories and remembrances. Sometimes they might be overshadowed but not detached. Today I would like to confess that you were always in my heart also in all those days when I was not with you, when you were not there with me, when I was happy and sad. I am trying to resume our custom of ‘expression through letter’ your 16th birthday onwards. :) Wish you wonderful days ahead and all the success and achievements you deserve. Happy Birthday darling.
