Cricketing country

OCT 23 -
Cricket is always regarded as a gentleman’s game. This mental attitude is very important in the game of cricket; this is the game of battle played with both hearts and minds. This game, of bat and ball is Australia and England’s national game. There is no doubt that has become like a religion in India. And if cricket is has become a religion in India, then obviously, Sachin Tendulkar is the god of the game.
I have been great fan of Sachin from my childhood days. I have loved the way he bats, fields and bowls in both one day and test matches. If anyone has ever played cricket then they must be aware of the great Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. However, the cricket game, in particular is bigger than any personal legend or name. I have learned that no game is won individually. The team effort plays a vital role in the success or failure of the game. Nevertheless, it does not matter if we lose or win the game, what matters most is the way the game is played.

In my opinion, this sport is catching up and emerging in Nepal as well. Personally, I have participated in one national game and several league games. And from what I’ve seen, I believe that Nepal has the potential to play World Cup Cricket game one day. I have always imagined Nepal and Nepali players playing with big players the likes of Sachin. Someday, I hope this too can be achieved.
The problems with cricket in Nepal are several. First, the cricket grounds are not well prepared. Second, the players are not given any benefits. Third, compared to other cricket powerhouses, there are not good coaches and physical trainers in the country. Fourth, the media attention and sponsorships given to the sport are limited. And lastly, there are not enough
competitions held at all levels: district, municipality and national. There are surely solutions to overcome these problems. Some of the right solutions would be to engage people, sponsors, and media people and engage more players into the game. Sometimes, I feel sad that I no longer play cricket, something I had to give it up due to my age. But I still polish my heart when I see my brothers and colleagues playing. It does not matter if I am not the one representing the Nepali cricket team. What matters most to me is that Nepal is being represented and Nepali players are competing in a big arena.

If we make improvements to national facilities to play this so called gentleman’s game, I believe the next Sachin may emerge from our Himalayan land. Providing solutions to above mentioned problems, in a few years, we could be playing at a World Cup Cricket match.
If we really love the game and have the passion to fight, Nepal can surely win the hearts and minds of cricket lovers across the world.

Okay, i am saying goodnight

Tonight and forever

When their will be twinkling stars

Up above in the dark sky

But can I ask one last thing

Do not ever feel my absence

As I will be gone

Let us say,

Just for tonight

Goodnight, good foes

Goodnight, good friends

Goodnight, so-called life

Goodnight, universes

Basics of Silverlight by JOHN STOCKTON

With a lot of people wanting to learn Silverlight today and not really knowing where to start, I thought I'd write something to help people get started.  This is not meant to be better than Jesse Liberty's version of the same thing, just a different take on it.
  1. Go read my post titled What Is Silverlight.  This should give you enough of an overview of Silverlight to make sure that it is what you think it is.
  2. Install the tools at  This will give you everything you need to begin building Silverlight applications.  Don't forget Expression Blend, even if you are not a designer some things are just a lot easier using Blend.
  3. Watch a couple "How Do I" videos on getting started and any other topics that interest you.
  4. Work through a QuickStart.  These expose you to programming numerous areas of Silverlight.  Feel free to just read the sections you need, when you need them.
  5. Build something.  It doesn't have to be original, fancy or even work well.  Don't even show it to anyone if it doesn't turn out looking quite right, but build something.  Pick an idea like a weather widget or an ad rotator or get adventurous and build a simple little space invaders style game, anything just BUILD something.  Using it is the best way to actually learn any technology.
  6. Don't be shy.  Use the forums at whenever you run into a stumbling block.  I would encourage you to attempt a search of the forums first though since if you are having trouble with something, someone else probably has as well.
  7. Read a lot.  Everybody and their brother is blogging about Silverlight.  A simple Google search will turn up information on nearly anything you can think of.  A good place to start is to subscribe to the Community blog aggregation feed from  Also be sure to catch Silverlight Cream as Dave Campbell does a great job of aggregating all the Silverlight posts he can find into a nice, searchable site.
  8. Push yourself.  Commit to doing something that you don't know how to do yet but know is possible.  There are a lot of options in this arena:
    1. Build a prototype for a work project
    2. Give a Silverlight presentation to a local user group
    3. Write an in-depth technical blog post
    4. Enter a contest.  At the moment I know of the Control Builder contest, an article writing contest and INETA is supposed to be starting the Silverlight Challenge soon as well.
I know that everyone has their own individual style and pace of learning but hopefully this will point you towards the path of [Silver]enlightenment.

Jim Says:

"People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain."

Build ’Em and They’ll Come

One comment was made for an article entitled, "Build ’Em and They’ll Come" at Nytimes.

Dear Sir,
Well, it does not matter weather it is million or billion what matters is spending. Especially in terms of research and innovation. Many Asian giants such as Singapore, Japan, Korea among others have spent hefty amount of money for research and they are still doing so. If there is no money in the research, you are bound to get no results or not so good results. The fact that entire world is running for "energy or green energy" is quite understandable since we lack them. However, by spending only on one sector cannot solve the problem. The spending should be proper and vigilant. The decisions of spending should be accountable dime by dime. Otherwise, there is no rhyme(innovation) coming from anywhere to anyplace.
Thank you !

Alexandra Delaney’s concern with animal rights and mass killings of buffaloes and goats during Dashain is legitimate and I understand how these acts could upset a true vegetarian (“Seeing red,” Oct. 12, Page 7). However, I do not agree with her statement about Nepal being “superstitious”.

Every country has a cultural legacy and religious practices for reasons that I don’t believe fall under the category of superstition, something that a religious scholar should understand. Her concluding quote of Ghandi—“every country can be judged based on how women and animals are treated”—also includes countries in the West where there are thousands of animals killed every day, often inhumanely. Why do only developing nations have to be picked for censure?

The Latest Crisis

In response to article entitled, "The Latest Crisis" this is my comments for it--

Dear Editor,

Please forgive my curiosity and concern. I am very much skeptical on asking question concerning, "why?". All this is being done to capture "one man" and defeat "terrorism". This is really good case where good guys are chasing the bad guys. To ordinary public like us, it is very doubtful question who is the good guy and who remains the bad guy. After hearing many conspiracy theories it raise little concern. However, all those spending and so called "crisis" are looking hazy and cozy.

Good luck !

Random thoughts/ideas

• You are not royal by blood, you are royal by thoughts.

• There are no words which cannot rhyme. No sorrows have crime. Let her soul twinkle and accept whatever passes in her time.

• All our ideas are absurd.

• I am going long way and I know you don’t know which ways.

• Nothing can exist without conflict. If you’re present time is without conflict, your future will be with conflict and vice versa.

• If nothing happens in life, then the time is slowly coming to an end.

• A true definition of man is not how many years he lives but how many experiences he seeds.

• In three words, I will tell you where to find true happiness. “IT’s NOT HERE.

Death Show

He was dead. Undoubtedly, a prolific writer, poet, and unsuccessful engineer, is being buried today in the graveyard near the mountain cliff of Santana. A large crowd in hundreds gathered to pay him homage. A media guy asks people about the dead man.

“A very generous character and very witty,” said a young man. “He was good novelist and his books have touched the hearts and minds of millions of people,” said a young man.

“Why are you saying those things to media they already know much about him, you should better speak about his character, not only about quantity of books that he sold,” said an old man.

“Who cares what I speak and how I speak, I don’t give a shit about that dead man anymore,” said a young man.
A media guy has to censor such violent words so he moved on to another lady. A media guy asks, “In your opinion, what do you think about this dead man?”

“I don’t think, I feel pain,” she said.

“Why is that?”

“Someday, I will also die and there will be no one who will telecast my death show.”

Review for "Quote Me Everyday"

Rating: 4 Stars

"Santosh Kalwar most recent book is a series of quotes. There is one for everyday of the year. From January 1st through December 31st the reader will find a collection that includes inspiration, positive thinking and words of wisdom. After reading quotes and mind evoking thoughts by such notables as Gandhi, Einstein, Shakespeare, Norman Vincent Peale and others, the author set out on his own journey of writing a book of quotations. One of my favorites through the book is from May 11th.

"It does not matter how much you receive, it matters when you learn to give."

There is a quote for everyone for at least one day of the week, month or year in Santosh Kalwar's newest book "Quote Me Everyday.""
