    World Telecommunication Day/World Hypertension day

    World Telecommunication Day
    The purpose of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD) is to help raise awareness of the possibilities that the use of the Internet and other information and communication technologies (ICT) can bring to societies and economies, as well as of ways to bridge the digital divide. 17 May marks the anniversary of the signing of the first International Telegraph Convention and the creation of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).


    In November 2005, the World Summit on the Information Society called upon the UN General Assembly to declare 17 May as World Information Society Day to focus on the importance of ICT and the wide range of issues related to the Information Society raised by WSIS. The General Assembly adopted a resolution in March 2006 stipulating that World Information Society Day shall be celebrated every year on 17 May.

    Telecom history in Nepal
    The first telephone line was connected to Kathmandu in 1913, and a year later, in 1914, a telephone line was connected from Kathmandu to Raxaul, India. In 1936, a trunk line was established from Kathmandu to Dhankuta.

    In 1950, an exchange of 100 line telephone capacity was established in the valley for the use of the royal palace and the then-Rana family. These phones were available only to the ruling class. Only in 1962, a 300-line capacity exchange was connected to Kathmandu for public use. It was built in 1965 with a capacity of one thousand lines. In 1974, the microwave link was expanded. The digital telephone exchange was connected in 1983.

    In 1995, the latest achievement of communication technology was the connection of an optical fiber network. In 1997, Birgunj (Raxaul Optical Fiber) connected directly to the Telecommunications Corporation of India. In 1999, mobile phones were first introduced in Nepal. The Internet was started in 2000. In 2003, prepaid mobiles were expanded. CDMA phone service was launched in 2005. GPRS and 3G services were launched in 2007 on the expanded mobile network across Nepal. Subsequent achievements are now witnessed by the new generation.
    Society needs a person who can speak kindly, not just chat, not only post sharing, but also a friend who shares pain and happiness, not just a Facebook or YouTube page, but also a place where everyone can sit and have tea and talk. Let Telecommunication Day recognize these dimensions of humanity.

    Digital technologies for older persons and healthy ageing​
    The ageing of the global population will be the defining demographic trend of the 21st century—yet our societies struggle to see the opportunities that this trend can unfold. Telecommunications and information communication technologies (ICTs) have a role to play in achieving healthier ageing, but also in helping people build smarter cities, combat age-based discrimination at the workplace, ensure financial inclusion of older persons, and support millions of caregivers across the world.

    World Hypertension day
    World Hypertension Day 2022: Every year, on May 17, World Hypertension Day is observed in order to educate the public and create awareness on high blood pressure and hypertension. This year, the theme of World Hypertension Day is ‘Measure your blood pressure accurately, control it, live longer’. Hypertension, usually caused by stress and lack of a disciplinary life, can lead to a ranfe of disorders such as stroke, heart diseases, kidney diseases and dementia.

    Hypertension, this day was first observed in 2005. Changing lifestyles, packaged foods, processed foods, busy lifestyles, and the multiplication of desires and the competition for unwanted wealth and progress are making people hypertensive. We all need to be vigilant.

    Even during the current Corona panic, the risk of high blood pressure is exacerbated by stress and limitations.
    We are all at risk of hypertension. Hypertension is a silent but frightening health problem of modern society, it is necessary to pay attention to. There is a need for a turn of peace and equality in these generations that have forgotten to live a life of gain and loss. It is important to keep blood pressure in the right place, usually, the upper pressure is systolic 120 and lower diastolic 80 and now this parameter is increased till 130 and 90 as per different researches and medical articles. Is it possible to take a little time today and check your blood pressure? Remember that high blood pressure is one of the most important and dangerous causes of cardiac disease. It causes renal diseases, thyroid problems, and various neurological diseases. It is better to check the body from time to time instead of taking medicine and going to the doctor all year round, we need to be aware of this.

    It is very good to stay away from smoking and alcohol, but if we can't, we can get rid of many diseases by using less, exercising daily, and engaging in sports. Daily exercise can make you feel tired and gives you a good sleep, people who work night shifts and stay up late at night are more likely to develop hypertension. Blood pressure has a fixed pressure, both high and low are harmful. Make time for yourself, bank balance may give you happiness but there is no greater happiness than health. Pay attention to diet, exercise, and rest.

    Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
    Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
