5 super badass Nepalis I want to remind you about

No offence intended.

But from a total population of 26,494,504 people, 30 percent Nepalis are total badass, 30 others are lying leaders, 30 others laborers all around the globe, and out of the remaining 10 percent, nine are zombies and one percent write and read about badass Nepalis … like you and me at the moment.

Which one are you? Have you got that 30 percent of badassery in your gene?

Are you even a Nepali?

Good for me, if you are not. For you are likely to believe in that statistics I made up above. Next, the stories of badass Nepalis I’m going to relate (not exaggerate) could inspire you.

badass nepalis

But first, you should agree to the fact that as we laze around, dig our noses, just doze to the sound of raindrops falling on the rooftop, or as you read this article some people somewhere are going through the worst moments of their lives.

All the time we doze off leisurely, they could be trying to keep their minds at the crossroads of sanity and the utter insanity.

Their whole existence hanging between life and death.

For them seconds look like eons, reality looks like a bad dream.

Some lose the battle, and some live to tell the tale.

And some come out of the terrible situation with their middle finger raised high in pride and dignity.

They, my friend, are the real badasses.

Even if you can’t get out of some horrible situation, someone else will always tell your tale if you’ve done something really badass.

What is the worst situation you’ve ever fallen into? How did you come out of it? Did you whimper? Did you whine?

Fear really takes a toll on us.

You may find these stories of badass Nepalis unbelievable, and some may even sound hyper-exaggerated but they are true to every word. (Check out the links to confirm.)

Count ten real badass people from around the world and two of them will be Nepalis. Well, there’s a simple reason for that.

It’s not that Nepalis have a badass gene. Actually, it’s related with the professions we take.

Just as professional discrimination was thought to be the main reasons behind some really weird and racist proverbs in Nepal, the three D’s we love are behind the badassery of Nepali folks.

We love doing the dirty, difficult and dangerous.

We are construction workers toiling in the scorching sands of Qatar building football stadiums for 2022, we are manual laborers behind the economic boom of once-a-tropical-forest-Malaya, we are the real badasses who carry a mountaineer’s backpacks up to the top of the world, ….. and we are mercenaries trained to kill people for queens and sheiks.

Oh! Can I hold my head fucking high!

And, that is why the mercenary part is what brings out the badass from most Nepalis.

Check out this story of a real badass mercenary. Continue reading 5 super badass Nepalis I want to remind you about

5 convincing reasons to legalize marijuana (गाँजा) in Nepal

Would you help legalize marijuana in Nepal if you had to vote in an opinion poll?

I’m in for legalization of marijuana in Nepal. Legalize marijuana so that people can plant and sell marijuana. Age limit should be fixed for marijuana consumption, we should be able to export medicinal extracts from marijuana, and laws should be passed on where and when people can smoke marijuana.

Legalization of marijuana seems to have more benefits. Unless Nepal Police is content with the waste of its time and resources cutting and burning down marijuana plants. Marijuana, if legalized, would be able to increase the national income, promote health and maybe promote creativity too.

Below, we discuss exactly five reasons marijuana (also known as ganja, cannabis, hemp, marihuana, bhang, hashish, weed, reefer, pot, g, joint …) should be legalized in Nepal. Continue reading 5 convincing reasons to legalize marijuana (गाँजा) in Nepal

7 racist Nepali proverbs you believe to be true but maybe aren’t

Do you think the following very racist Nepali proverbs are true if we are to believe that proverbs are born out of our collective experience?

racist nepali proverbs

We have our share of racist proverbs. There’s a proverb to dominate, discriminate and devastate every caste and creed.

Proverbs, whether they are racist or full of wisdom, come from common sense and practical experience of people before us. There’s no denying that there’s a glimmer of truth and wisdom in them but we can’t consider every proverb as the ultimate phrase that describes the behavior of people from a specific caste.

Nepali society is rich with racist Nepali proverbs. This list of seven is just a scratch on the surface. I can’t predict how many more of such racist proverbs come up if we dig deeper.

You know there can be so many proverbs hidden because their circulation might have been restricted to some specific groups of people. We wouldn’t want to disclose proverbs we have made up for the other caste as they would show what we think about our neighbors.

I hope you will help me in adding more of these racist proverbs down in the comments. Even the ones you think shouldn’t be shared in public…

Of all the people, you could be guilty of nurturing racist sentiments deep inside!
Many times little words shape our actions; little proverbs that suggest us how we should deal with some people.

Let’s go through 7 of the most racist Nepali proverbs and discuss how they could have started, why they could be true and why they couldn’t be true.

Let’s take these proverbs seriously and decide whether they are valid to be circulated around in the 21st century. Let’s think of all the prejudice that can be/is created by these racist proverbs.

Don’t you think these proverbs could be shaping our minds on how we treat our friends and neighbors?

What do you say?

Here’s what the first really racist Nepali proverb says. Continue reading 7 racist Nepali proverbs you believe to be true but maybe aren’t

Telepathy is no more a paranormal activity, scientific experiment claims; it never was

Do you believe in telepathy? Do you think a person can actually transfer his thoughts to another person’s mind without any physical means?

If you think of telepathy as a baseless but beautiful imagination found only in Hollywood’s superhero movies, then you gotta think twice. The latest research on telepathy, conducted by researchers from Harvard University, claims that telepathic communication is actually possible.

After the success in the experiment, researchers have started thinking of ways this power can be utilized for the welfare of humanity.

What happened in the telepathy experiment?

The story of the scientific experiment on telepathy goes like this: Continue reading Telepathy is no more a paranormal activity, scientific experiment claims; it never was
