    Ghatasthapana/International Day For The Elimination Of Nuclear Weapons


    दशैं आयो
    खाउँला पिउँला
    कहाँबाट ल्याउँला, चोरी ल्याउँला
    धत्त पापी म त छुट्टै बसौंला भन्दै औंला भाँच्दै बिताएको एक वर्षको प्रतिक्षा आज समाप्त भएको छ । दशैं घरघरमा आएको छ ।

    The oldest default vernacular on Dashain, super popular among children of all generations. This is a conversation between the fingers, one says Dashain has finally arrived, the next says now we shall eat, drink and be merry, the next one says, from where shall you bring money for the celebration, next one promptly replies that probably he will steal money from somewhere and the final or the thumb says you, damn sinner, let me be a bit far from you and this is why thumb is a bit far from the rest fingers.

    Arrival of Dashain
    Whatever the anecdote is, Dashain has finally arrived at every doorstep. This year's Dashain can be very different and tragic in terms of blessing and gathering, Corona's infection risk and the deep pit of the economy may result in less proportionate Dashain to everyone's door this year, but, certainly, the joy and mood of Dashain will not diminish. Let's redefine the Dashain where we are, shall we?

    What is Jamara?
    Ghatasthapana is the auspicious day when we plant "Jamara" at our house, a sacred place is prepared inside the house where soils are kept and seeds of barley, maize, paddy, and other crops are sowed. For the next nine days that place is worshipped and finally on the tenth day, the germinations from those seeds are used in worship and given to Youngers by elders as a sign of blessings and love.

    Although jamara is the germination of barley, the jamara of Dashain includes barley, paddy, and maize. This culture associated with soil, water, air, flowers, and sprouts makes it clear that we are very close to plants and nature.

    Navratri starts today
    Navratri started today, now every morning there is a crowd of devotees in all the new Durga Bhagwati Shakti Peeths of the country. But this year it's different, there shall be no crowds and gatherings, everything happens inside the house.

    The practice of germinating Dashain Jamara varies from place to place. In some places, Jamara is deposited in a Guthi or Shaktipith and a temple by setting up a Dashainghar collectively or individually in the worship room of one's own house or some other clean place of the house.

    By keeping this barley germination on the head, every Nepali shall get the power of Durga Bhawani with harmony, virtue, and prosperity. In the same way, nature may have given us information about our roots, that is, our culture, traditions, and human bases. No matter how big, tall, and thick the plants are, even if their branches try to touch the sky, their roots are in the soil. That is to say, no matter how much we change or progress and touch the sky, it shows the importance of not forgetting the foundation of our precious material culture and tradition.
      Happy Wishes

    International Day for the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons

    Let's start with a quote from the great scientist Albert Einstein: "I don't know what would happen if there was a third world war, but if there was a fourth world war, stone weapons would be used." Why did Einstein say this to challenge this prosperity of development? After all, why did Einstein, the great scientist of the century, see the possibility of losing this background of world development and this height of civilization?

    After all, why does the existence of the world seem to be trapped from time to time?

    Along with the practice of modernization of human civilization, the world has started fighting wars with horses, elephants, swords, bows, and shields. World War II ended only after brutal nuclear launches in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan.

    Keep in mind that in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, trees are still unable to grow, and radiation from nuclear weapons still causes various health problems and long-term effects. On August 6, 1945, a nuclear attack killed nearly 200,000 people.

    Since nuclear weapons testing began on 16 July 1945, nearly 2,000 have taken place. In the early days of nuclear testing little consideration was given to its devastating effects on human life, let alone the dangers of nuclear fallout from atmospheric tests. Hindsight and history have shown us the terrifying and tragic effects of nuclear weapons testing, especially when controlled conditions go awry, and in light of the far more powerful and destructive nuclear weapons that exist today.

    The General Assembly declared the International Day in December 2013, in its resolution 68/32 as a follow-up to the high-level meeting of the General Assembly on nuclear disarmament held on 26 September 2013, in New York.

    This was the latest in a series of efforts by the General Assembly to raise public awareness and to seek deeper engagement on nuclear disarmament matters. In 2009, the General Assembly declared 29 August as the International Day against Nuclear Tests (resolution 64/35).

    Achieving global nuclear disarmament is one of the oldest goals of the United Nations. It was the subject of the General Assembly’s first resolution in 1946, which established the Atomic Energy Commission (dissolved in 1952), with a mandate to make specific proposals for the control of nuclear energy and the elimination of atomic weapons and all other major weapons adaptable to mass destruction. The United Nations has been at the forefront of many major diplomatic efforts to advance nuclear disarmament since. In 1959, the General Assembly endorsed the objective of general and complete disarmament. In 1978, the first Special Session of the General Assembly Devoted to Disarmament further recognized that nuclear disarmament should be the priority objective in the field of disarmament. Every United Nations Secretary-General has actively promoted this goal.

    Yet, today around 12,705 nuclear weapons remain. Countries possessing such weapons have well-funded, long-term plans to modernize their nuclear arsenals. More than half of the world’s population still lives in countries that either have such weapons or are members of nuclear alliances. While the number of deployed nuclear weapons has appreciably declined since the height of the Cold War, not one nuclear weapon has been physically destroyed according to a treaty. In addition, no nuclear disarmament negotiations are currently underway.
    Peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons, meaningful wishes.

    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.
