17th Feb 2017, KOWLOON, HONG KONG – Three hours before to airport at my home too, I was not really on the way of my trip to Hong Kong. All of the sudden, I found myself on the way of reporting to airport for travel. I set off for report on foot since airport is ten minutes far from my home on foot. There are a lot of people in queue checking-in and I joined the queue. Most of Nepali people are for connecting flight and few are to Hong Kong.
Kathmandu, 9th November 2016 — United Nations (UN) exam centre was in court square of New York which was major destination of my mission to United States of America (USA) in 12th October 2011 including my official assignment to the UN in Manhattan, New York. I met an American man, 28, who was in same exam hall, while returning from exam centre and talked about few things with him about his job and education. His home was in Brooklyn, which was tomorrow’s destination of my trip. He was an American and working in Kenya. He was also in New York to take examination of the UN. But, he was from outside of the UN. I asked him why he was working in Kenya rather than working in his home town or in any part of USA since everyone thinks that USA is land of opportunities. “There is nothing here for me, I could not earn money here and move to Kenya to earn money”, he expressed with sadness. Most of people not only in Nepal think USA is a land of opportunities and they want to go USA to earn money and comfort life style. The answer stressed new way of thought of USA in front my way. And I was thinking of his mobility from USA to Kenya.
With increasing penetration of the Internet in Nepal, 46.04 per cent in 2015 and 38.68 per cent in 2014, diplomats, government and political parties have also entered into digital diplomacy for digital battle to contest with their own context in modern society equipped with science and technology. People with ambition of the materialistic world and race of advancement, won’t now stop in this reasoning era living with digital technology like the Internet. One of the least developed countries like Nepal has 4 million Facebook users in 2016, said Facebook.
There is no doubt of innovation for foster development and resilience infrastructure development in a nation. No area is immune from effects of innovative technology with rapid growing and rendering social calendar of people around the world. Nobody wants to stop the technology and feel incomplete without technology even in group or alone, especially if to show off. In case of wondering how such technology is affordable to hunger who cannot even afford his grains. It would be innovative and sustainable if a hunger, from war zone and crisis, could afford the technology rather than a matter of show off. Development actors, donors, national and international community and no other than scholar and academicians should enter into a dialogue to bridge technology and livelihood of people in a way that a hunger would have no feelings of hungry next morning rather than as a burden or expensive item just for show off.
Digital technology is though low cost media for expedition of information management, sharing in e-gov like in Nepal, political movement like in presidential election in US 2008, but I am fail to see low social cost in digital age. Social costs are of native relations, carefree life, humanity, and human sovereignty. It is not matter of only using technology, but implement those items and inventions with very carefully within core mission of happiness of life.

Significantly decreasing number of students in most of government schools only blaming of increasing number and success of private schools is not natural getting excuse of escape or it is like a hoax of lack of quality education in government school nowadays. There are very good and excellent teachers in government schools but people are not still quite ready to send their children in government schools in city area but they are dreaming to get job in government schools because not only salary and entitlement of teacher are more handsome than teachers of private school but also it is matter of stable job in government schools. Why are we having contrast in present action and future prospects? It is not only matter of lack of quality assurance of education in government schools and is not obviously matter of fee structure and other expenses. Everything is free in government school but still people are not sending their children in government schools if they can afford private school in their best. And it is matter of lack of trust building demonstrated by management of the school though they have more capable and excellent human resources than private schools.
Kathmandu, (RMB Social) 20 April 2016 – Classroom of Dr. Ram Thapaliya for “Models and Applications of Conflict Resolution” in 2012 was full of students with pin drop silence. I was at the last bench as habitual. Lecture was very nice and crystal clear and presentation slides were moving. At the middle of class, I could not understand about just one previous slide and requested Dr. Thapaliya for his review on previous presentation slide of “multi track diplomacy”. He stopped for a while in the pin drop silence but moved back to the slide and furnished the conceptual review once again. I understood the lecture very clearly. At the end of his furnishing, he fired a statement – “Mr. Banepali, you wasted my 5 minutes in my class and onwards you never act such activity again”. Literally, I was speechless and could not dare to act nothing at the moment. Later on, Dr. Thapaliya had given me an opportunity to facilitate and mediate a workshop, conflicting parties and colleagues of the university at the end of semester which was one of the remarkable journey of my life in social interface in a different ways.
