    Matatirtha Aunshi (Mother's Day)/World Redcross Day/Law Day

    May the children of all mothers be safe this year, may the mothers of all children be safe. May mercy is upon the mothers and children of every living being on this planet, may smiles be maintained, and may the families of all be happy. Amid the ever-increasing number of deaths due to corona panic, the increase in infections and the increasing pressure of patients in the hospital, the lack of oxygen and ventilators, this year's Matatirtha Aunshi is all the rage.

    मातृदेवो भव ।
    पितृदेवो भव ।।
    आचार्यदेवो भव ।।।

     'जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरियसी'
     'कुपुत्रो जायते क्वचिदपि कुमाता न भवति'

     The Sanskrit verses mentioned carrying the glory of Mother and motherhood. Welcome to the Baisakh Krishna aaunshi of this year, Ama ko Mukh Herne Din, the day to acknowledge our mothers for everything they did for us.

     In the scriptures, the mother is found to be higher than the father. In this way, it is customary for children to receive blessings from their mothers by giving them reverence, devotion, respect, and gifts for their mothers.

     Let me put this question today, what is the first word or noun or pronoun, we first knew to pronounce?

    Many of us first learn to speak the word, Ama, mom, mommy, mamma, and others to address our mother. Our childhood days include waking up and looking for her and ending our days by ensuring she is home when we knock on doorsteps. Folks, let's remember the cuddling with our mother and tight squeezes in beds while rolling from one to another side of the bed, that maniac-like nonstop giggling and getting wrapped like a burrito. Messing up the home and anticipating mom to forgive us and redecorate things, her surprises on our every move and stupidities. My best part was my naïve approached to make my mom happy, my utmost ode to every mom on this planet.

    On this auspicious day, people give tributes to their mothers in various forms, offering them their favorite foods, fruits, ornaments, clothes, and gifts. Love is not distributed proportionately in this world, those whose mothers are deceased also remember their mothers by going to temples and pilgrimage sites. Matatirtha which translates to mother's pilgrimage is a holy site on the eastern part of Kathmandu valley, people visit there and offer tributes to the soul of their deceased mother, people also visit the Aradhyadeb Pashupati area to remember their deceased mothers and show their gratitude. They donate "Sida", this is an ancient form of donating essentials like grains, lentils, ghee, vegetable, turmeric, salt, masala and other things which are needed to cook. It is believed that the soul of deceased mothers arrives on the riverside of pilgrimage on this day, people take a holy bath on the river or water taps and offer their prayers, Sida, and gratitude to their deceased mothers.

    If you are away from your parents, give a call to your mother and hear her voice? Or freshen up your mother's love by remembering and elaborating your mother by sharing your mother's description and affection to your friends? Whatever we do, we need to be loyal and honest to the good of the world, to the love of the mother and the streams of milk we which sustained us.

    Wishes of a meaningful Baisakh aaunshi.

    World Redcross Day

    The site of Solferino, now in Italy, witnessed the tragic condition of the bleeding soldiers, the wounded, and the dead when Henry arrived in this part of Europe in connection with the war. This journey inspired him to start an unprecedented organization for world philanthropy, the Red Cross, in 1863 as the International Commission of the Red Cross, or ICRC. The main tasks of the Red Cross are to protect humanity and rescue the wounded in war-torn areas.

    This world has gone through many wars, has a history of bloodshed, and in every war, significant numbers of wounded have died without treatment. Founded by Henry Dunant with the value of humanity and the need for service, the Red Cross now operates in more than 190 countries around the world.

    In Nepal too, we may have been very active in the Junior Red Cross and Youth Red Cross Circles, embracing the values of volunteerism and humanity from most of the schools we attended. The Nepal Red Cross was started in Nepal in 1963. Nepal Red Cross has been providing its services in all 77 districts. The Red Cross has made great strides in disaster management in Nepal, which was hit by major earthquakes in 1990, 2045, and 2072 BS. The Red Cross is an irreplaceable organization for blood donation and easy blood availability.

    The contribution of the Red Cross in the First and Second World Wars cannot be described. The contribution of the Red Cross in the history of humanitarian service in the world has been written by golden letters in the pages of history. Henry Dunant's dream of humanitarian service is linked to the Red Cross's many other incomparable contributions, and the Red Cross volunteers and leadership around the world who have dedicated their lives to humanitarian service.

    From the coordination of PCR tests to the availability of blood, now the availability of more plasma donors, the involvement of Red Cross volunteers in many other services seems remarkable.

    Law Day
    It should be mentioned here that on this year's Law Day, every hall of justice is deserted. Between the Corona terror and the series of death, the world is in terror again. There is a lot of causalities in India and all the hospitals and beds in Nepal are also already full. In the midst of Corona's terror, this year's Law Day is also advocating for justice for all.

    All justice-loving Nepalis are welcome on Law Day. Nepal has been celebrating Baishakh 26 as Law Day, the day when Nepal issued the Judicial Act in 2009 BS.The need for the judiciary to play its role with a greater sense of responsibility to uphold constitutional supremacy and the rule of law in Nepal, and to protect the rights and freedoms of citizens, is being emphasized today.

    Of course, Nepal's constitutional judicial independence has been questioned from time to time. There is a history that the same person has been the head of the executive and the judiciary even during the practice of democracy. Contrary to the spirit of an independent judiciary, the question of judicial independence was raised when the then Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi was given the responsibility of the Chief Executive.

    An unpleasant mixture of politics and the judiciary is what today's Nepali court needs to get rid of. Let the white sentiments within the black coat be transparent, let the long and equal hands of the law be on everyone's head, let the law not be bought and sold.
    Meaningful wishes

    Suyog Dhakal

    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.
