My Dashain 2064 Review

It was fun to celebrate the gone Dashain. Though not much like the previous one where we had blast. The movement of non-Hindus to avoid celebrating Dashain is growing like wild fire and we are not exception. Many think that it is wired not to celebrate the great festival. But if you look back the history how Dashain festival was implemented to the non-Hindus, it is quite unfair. Every indigenous peoples have their own culture and festivals. Being in power, Hindu celebrated it, gave holidays which is still going on. Soon it became the national festival and everybody forgot their festival and started celebrating it. There is the system that a house should be marked by the blood of animal to signify that they are celebrating the festival. If one don’t follow that they were punished.

Whatever the history it was not fair and that makes the non-Hindus burn from inside and that is dangerous for the society and for the nation. I took this Dashain as LFC ( Leave for Change) from the work or having vacation. We played cards and dice, gone to visit relatives and the mostly played PC games. Actually I took two PC game DVDs cost Rs. 100 each. One was AOEIII (Age of Empires III) and the other was POP(Prince of Persia). AOE is my all time favorite PC game. This AOE III is the new version and there were new missions which I completed in this Dashain. I had bought Geforce FX5500 having 256MB memory from Computer Bazar, Putalisadak with Rs. 4600. Graphic cards are the dream device of all PC gamer and I was too. It took nearly three years to fulfill that dream. But the second DVD POP was damaged and thinking of replacing it.

The most good thing I thought I did in this Dashain is to collect Rs. 200 as the donation for flood victims of Terai. I made the rule that every person who wins the game should put Re. 1 as donation. That process continued and finally it reached that amount and I think that was not bad. I don’t know that was the reason or something else that I won most of the game and collected much more money than I had. We play Kitti, Flash, Kalbirak and Marriage. This Dashain our elder brother Aanand taught how to play Marriage. It was fun to play but at first it spun head to calculate the points last.

As the question of animal slaughter, it has become many years since we left to kill them during such festivals. But half of our family members are non-veg so they bought meat. I was surprised to read an article which said some villages of Gorkha left to kill animal before 100 years. It was successful due to a monk who encouraged the villagers to do so. I think this year there were a lot of movement went against animal slaughter which is very good. If this kind of situation continues there will be good place to live for animals and humans too.

Blog Action Day

15th of October: Blogging and Environment. A nice combination of two makes the Blog Action Day as environment is selected as a theme this year. This day is the environmental friendly movement which will try to aware every boy how each individual can take their own steps for the better environment. If you are a blogger it is the precious time you should talk about environment. In this day everyone can participate in their own way.

Here are only some of the list of things that you could do as an individual to make environment happy:

Consider a smaller point size
Designers are already accused of making the type too small to be readable, but go ahead. A smaller font size can allow you to fit more words on a page, which requires fewer pages, which requires fewer trees, which requires fewer environmental crises.

Opt out of wasteful mailing lists
If you find your office mail box stuffed with computer catalogs and who-knows-what-else that goes straight in the recycling bin, nip that paper waste in the bud by getting off the mailing list. It may take some diligence if you work directly with the sender, but there are national opt-out lists run through the Direct Marketing Association that can eliminate a lot of the unwanted mailings.

Turn used file folders inside out
We bet you’re thinking this is the dumbest idea you’ve seen here yet. But not really. When a job’s complete, clean out the file, refold the thing inside out and you’re ready for a new project. You just cut your file folder expenses in half and saved some poor tree.
