Maha Shiva Ratri

Posted by: milan

I always wanted to visit Pasupati temple on Shiva Ratri. Thanks to our office management on declaring holiday on that day, I was able to fullfill my dream this time.

    well.. i dont think we really need to be sad regarding this… nepal being declared secular has two sides… being previously a hindu nation, it somewat united all ppl of nepal. true.. and now.. with secular.. other smaller grp of ppl from other religion may feel they have their say too. kinda.. well true.. cant make everyone happy.. nevertheless… lets live in harmony and in peace. :smile:

    I feel sad that our country was declared secular right after jana andolan-2, which was not the demand of Nepali people. It was done with the advice of Samuel Tate who was supposedly working for the united nations helping Nepal. I used to feel pride being the citizen of the only hindu kingdom in the world. I still hope it will be the hindu nation one day. Being a Hindu kingdom it was no hindrance to other religion.
    There are somany islamic state, jewish state and christian state but why not hindu nation??

  3. no voyeur

    great pictures, milan. however, my advice to the admin on the pics: please do not post pictures that may be compromising to the subject photographed. what i mean by that is the two pics u have on ppl obtaining grass and rolling it. it is unethical and voyeuristic. i am sure the person wudn’t be happy if his parents saw it. and if nepal had the right legislation, he could actually sue everest.
