Mark Zuckerberg said that internet connectivity is a human right. Really?

Full Text Sharing
Categories: 
Internet can be seen as the latest evolution within a technological continuum that allows having instant access to worldwide news, unlimited knowledge. Still we should not forget that it is just a means, a tool that can make our life simpler or more complicated; the net is really powerful but does it qualify as a human right?

Simply because parties cannot agree on the constitution, it does not mean that they cannot set a common understanding on how to boost the economy. The country does not need new vision on how to create and nourish a “bottom up” prosperity, ensuring that economic growth, also through special arrangements, can be really inclusive and not elude those down the social-economic ladder.

After all the concept of social justice should not be that controversial nor radical but often times only radical approaches achieve the desired change.

The Not for Profit Sector in Nepal still lacks a “manifesto” culture. This should change

Through ideas and propositions, the not for profit sector can acquire not only relevance but also the legitimacy that it still lacks while breaking the monopoly on policy making held by the bureaucrats with the backup of donors agencies.

Brief note on taking pictures of children:

1. Let's not portray child as victims in the picture.

2. Stop taking photographs of children with torned clothes, half bodies shown, and that looks helpless with further advertisement in social medias..

3. Lets understand that even child needs respect. Dignity is not just for adults.

Every children are special. Everyone from the one that wakes up in a warm bed to the one that wakes up in cold street.

Let's love and show much respect towards the children even in photographs!!
