Balkanization and Enclaves: Banning PupG in Nepal?

img_8548-1137344456.jpgCan anyone or government stop accessibility of any content of the Internet if e-readiness is high in the state? Probably it is almost not. PupG was recently banned and porn was blocked few months ago by the authority in Nepal. Stopping and filtering internet contents in specific geo-location is known as Balkanization in which not only content but also any technology might be in corner from population. The question, is it possible to stop on current context in Nepal? It works but there are few things which descale balkanization. There are vividly two factors – 1. Fragility of technology and 2.
