Ok now - atleast apologise

Isn't it hard to keep away from bad news when you are surrounded by nothing but bad news. Sometimes you are penalized for not keeping up with the bad news; that happened to me when I realized that people are flocking in queue at petrol pump and my fuel meter warned for refill. The fact being Terai remained closed since god knows when. And yesterday Kathmandu valley was closed because Maoists believed that their cadre Rajendra Phuyal was killed by UML Youth Wing - Youth Force. And now there's another news that Mr Phuyal death was caused by consumption of pesticide, Metacid. For a moment i felt like laughing. And I see nothing but stupidity. Similarly yesterday I was watching Avenvues News where some Maoist guy appeared on the screen and shouted "We [maoists] are not doing anything [closing down the valley], it's Kathmandu dwellers who are uprising against such atrocities by closing down the valley". Now you tell, what should be our reaction. Atleast I was expecting some apologies though their action will never be forgiven - torching the motorbike of doctor, vandalizing the media vehicles.

Hello, I am Shirish, a reporter at the Kathmandu Post, and am doing a feature for the Saturday special on Blogging. The piece will come on 29th August, 09. I read your blog, and I was wondering if you could be so kind as to answer some of my queries. I cannot guarantee that you will be quoted, but your help will definitely let the readers know more of blogging in Nepal. You may answer all, or any question you feel like answering. You may provide any extra information, and your name, real or an ID, but must understand that you may be quoted by the Post. Please mail your answers to shirishp@wlink.com.np What is your occupation? What age group do you think you fall in: <16, 16-31, 31-49, 49-65, above 65? Why do you blog? When did you start blogging from? Why? What makes you keep blogging, without any strong incentive? How many bloggers do you think are there in Nepal? Do you regularly read other bloggers? How many, and how many are Nepali? Do you believe that a blog can really make a difference? If yes, How? I hope the questions are not too bothersome.

Happy Writing! -Shirish
