Description:

Mobile has become a crucial part of recent life in Nepal. Demand of NTC mobile is more than that NTC can support. Moreover, the recent electricity shortage problem has hit this sector. Many people are seen to be complaining about the lack of proper connectivity. No matter how worse the network is, we heavily depend on our cellphones and cannot do without it. Here a girl is trying to call her friend since half an hour and problem is no connection message.

    Picture speaks a thousand words. And am OK with every one comments added here. Everyone has his/her own way of thinking.

    This photo was taken while I was standing at Kalanki chowk, She was there wandering around here and there and trying to make one perfect connection. From the trouble she was facing sudden thought came on clicking the situation and post it here. I have taken many picture of individual and none have raised any issues. From the comments given here I felt, my mistake here is clicking that lady. If it was a man or any other poor looking lady no one would have given negative views. Guys let’s not always have a dirty feelings.

    Kuro ra kule jata bangayo utai bangecha. Thank you all for valuable comments. Your feed backs have motivated me to keep on posting.

  2. IT Freak

    Agreed with many other comments as above.

    This is sheer violation of privacy. This pic does not do quite a favour to subject. Since the pic focuses more on the lady, rather than the mobile connection you have said.

    We, as visitors see the picture and the picture only. Not something that you waited to look at her during ur travel. No matter at wot names u put comments on this blog and support yourself, negative comments will fly through.

    Dear Commentor & Viewers Please Note :

    1. The picture does not support the Caption/description of the picture.
    2. Keeping the main Subject in the Center part of the picture is quite
    “SYMMETRICAL”
    3. The Girl is
    wel dressed
    4. Mobile on her hand shuld be focused rather than her beautiful face
    5. She is feeling proud to be captured…..

    DEAR LIN Editors,

    I, personally appreciate that you will think twice before posting a Nice & Cute Looking Girl’s picture. I bet, people don’t see the Zest of the picture, they look only the face & body of such girl/woman. Sorry to state but its a Seriou Fact .

    Very interesting to see these bombardments of comments here in LIN, which I guess has proved how people try to compete who’s the first to drop comment for nothing. I wish people could compete to drop some sensible comments.

    And I agree with LIN Editor, ‘everyone has their own perspective of viewing the world and they have individual way of perceiving things’. And it amused me in knowing how people perceive fishy stories just out of such plain picture of a lady.

    I like the post.. Whether its the actual one or not… But Life in Nepal is not just old people and child working…or anything else … we are actually facing problem because of Nepal Telecom… They charge money even if its says ” The mobile you have dail is Switch off”. And even we can’t connect a person we want to at the time.

    So thats what it reflects “THIS IS REAL LIFE IN NEPAL”….. Nice Capture :)

  6. suyesh

    Oh yea, and does anyone here ask permission of the kids/old people (same old normal LIN posts) before publishing it here?

  7. suyesh

    I call this good LIN post which tells the story of current problem which everyone is facing. Nepal is not only about poverty and village stuffs. And yeah, seems that everyone here only noticed the girl, not the mobile in her hand.

  8. lucida

    I agree with Mr. Sensible. Picture doesn’t reflect the problem mentioned in the caption. The type of comments made here also force us to ask the motive of the picture posted . Taking snaps in the street is easy but photographer should be very careful about the interpretation and should be honest to the subject. Personally I didn’t like the overall idea here.
    I appreciate the acknowledgement made by LIN Editor here though.

  9. LIN Editor

    Sometime ‘issue’ provoked by the photograph is more important. Going through all these comments here in this post made me realize that, this picture may be a bad choice to address this issue of “poor mobile phone connection” which has affected almost everyone who value time and faced some difficult time because of not being able to connect with the person in urgent.

    I know everyone has their own perspective of viewing the world and they have individual way of perceiving things. As a LIN Editor I don’t defy their views and comments.

    And I am grateful to Mr. Sensible who has pointed our mistake and help to improve LIN to grow better. I hereby acknowledge our mistake and would like to learn from such mistake.

    LIN Editor.

  10. Me, Myself and I

    Seems like a voyeur shot to me. Beside that;

    1. Photograph of a lady with a mobile in her hand – how this represent the life in Nepal and how it justify the caption and the description?
    2. Did the photographer ask her before taking her picture?
    3. Did anybody from EU ask her before publishing her photo in the public blog?

    C’mon guys. Grow up. Try to show some respect and maintain privacy of the people.

  11. Mr Sensible

    The concern raised is very much relevant, but the picture does not seem to be spontaneous to reflect the problem as mentioned in the description.
    Life in Nepal Guidelines
    Please read the following rules carefully before submitting any photos.
    1) Photograph must be taken by contributor himself/herself.
    2) Photograph must have a caption (no longer than 30 characters)
    3) Photograph must have a description. Informative description related to the subject and place of the photograph are preferred.
    4) Photographs must not be altered. Minor digital enhancement is permitted, but images that have been significantly modified or appear unnatural will be considered unfit for the selection.
    5) Photographs having a resolution greater than or equal to 800×600 (72 dpi) are preferred.
    6) Photographs once submitted will be unfit for further submission.

    (I doubt if all these issues are looked into when the LIN Team post a picture)

  12. real

    What a crap photographer to not be able to focus your lens on what you’re tryin to focus. We read after we see
    the picture. Picture is supposed to tell us what you’ve in your mind. And remeber, a good photographer doesn’t
    need words to describe what he/she is trying to potray. It does help to make your point more clearer though.

  13. anti comdemnor

    People tend to fill what exactly they are, comdemnor you are having wrong concepts. You must read writer feeling what really want to focus on. She has mobile on hand and it is the real problem of recent NEPAL. Every Nepali are facing NTC Mobile problem, and mobile has become a part of Nepali life.

  14. The ComdemNOR
