Letter from the Front: Youths Creating Action for Peaceful Borders Using Digital Activism and Social Awareness to Resolve Border Disputes By Abhishek Jha The atrocious nature of the establishment of the Israeli state in 1948 earned the event the label of ‘Nakba’ or catastrophe from the Palestinians. It marked the beginning of a deep-running ethnic divide that has materialized in the form of a violent border dispute over the decades. Repeated conflicts between the two sides have dashed hopes of a peaceful resolution of the issue. Failed reconciliation efforts marred by bloody violence has caused an ever-increasing rift between people residing in those regions. The increasingly apparent failure of the violent ways of the older generations, however, has prompted the search for an alternative solution. Youths from both sides of the border have launched initiatives, especially on social media, to seek the obstacles in ensuring a peaceful co-existence between the Israelis and Palestinians. Such initiatives have highlighted the isolation from other cultures as a major aggravator of the impact of contentious border issues around the globe. Youths internationally are playing
A nation without Border By Adity Shah A nation without border is like a house without walls it collapses and that is what going to happen if Nepalese government and the locals do not unite together getting ash trayed of the thought of being Pahades and Madhesis instead as a bunch of flowers representing a wholesome Nepalese unity. Youths are not the source of problems they are the resources needed. Youths are not expenses; They are investments. Youths are not just young people They are people and citizens of the country. Nepal is a small country in terms of power, especially when we're surrounded by two powerful nations in the world: India and China. Back in the Sugauli Treaty, Nepal was tricked into handing over its major parts to India and China. In regards to the two beautiful places of the Nepalese territory, Limpuyadhura and Lipulekh which lie in the far-west region of Nepal; especially when the entire world is going through a pandemic situation to fight COVID-19 how shameful was it of India to have completed the construction work
Letter from the Front: Youths creating action for peaceful borders By Jebish Prajapati One of the fondest memories of school life used to be belting out our national anthem with immense passion and enthusiasm. Every citizen has a sense of pride in their motherland. Love for one’s motherland is one of the most powerful and uplifting feelings. But what sort of action would you take against someone opposing your motherland? The recent actions of our neighbor India may bring some light and justification to this afro mentioned question. The whole world is going through the darkest of times due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Nepal too has been deeply affected by this pandemic with rapid increase in number of positive cases with every passing day. Now to add further misery and pain, these recent encroachments of our land by the Indian government can be deemed both cruel and inhumane in equal measure. But the sad part is that India itself has been even more affected by this Covid-19 pandemic with over three thousand deaths. And rather than focusing on controlling

Letter from the front: Not by gun we revolt: Youth creating action for peaceful borders - By Yagyadi Acharya The buzz of nationalism and patriotism is on a rise once more as Indian government inaugurated a road in our disputed area of Kalapani. Time and again Nepal has been a victim of big brother attitude of India which has been unacceptable to citizens mainly youths of the Himalayan nation. Backed by a history and identity of brave Gorkhali Nepalese youths have time and again revolted from streets to social media to ensure national integrity and border security of its motherland. Time and again we have been a victim of segregation and have been disconnected due to ethnicity, religion, geography political ideology In such circumstances a stab on national integrity by a foreign force is also an opportunity to strengthen our national unity and connection. Protection of national interest against foreign force has been an old subject but changing paradigm shifts manifest it in different feature and character. Whether it be the Ranas, King or the political leaders all have one
Today the world is younger than it has ever been. We have around 1.8 billion young people aged between, 12 to 24 and it’s the largest youth group the world has ever seen. Today’s youths are tomorrow’s leaders and their leadership and participation is extremely important to create positive change in this world. Realizing the importance of young people, United Nations passed a revolution in 1999 to mark August 12 as an International Youth Day. The themes of International Youth Days are connected with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each year this day is celebrated as a small step towards adhering the SDGs. Similarly, this year the theme intends in making education more inclusive and accessible to all youths, a step towards adhering Goal number 4: Quality Education, which focuses on ensuring quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities to all. International Youth Day 2019: Transforming education: “With guns you can kill terrorists, with education you can kill terrorism”, Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Prize winner 2014 There is no doubt that education is key and the basis of all other development.
Life began like a seed in womb of mother continues till death May be after death In someone’s heart, memories “Life is a continuous process” Life is light always tries to be bright But May have load shedding Life is a sky, never definable Can’t be always clear but have flying bird Or dark cloud with silver lining Life just never forgets to amaze us with sadness or with happiness With fullness or with emptiness, With brightest smile or with deepest pain Life is expressible or just not Life is river which continues to flow where, how don’t know But flows Meets ocean?? Don’t know. Life: a non-existing ladder, straight, bent, curved or none You climb, you go up If you don’t, you stay down Life, a flower Can be picked by anyone Can be used to decorate Or to express sympathy Some say life is money Either you spend or earn it Life, a boon or a curse Life, an existence of living Life, full of thoughts, full of pain, full of gain, full of sorrow Or Just nothing

Dear parents, I am writing this letter to remind you that you have a daughter. Yes. She is vagina-ist. She has a vagina and boobs. Perfect two rounds and booty she loves. She is your daughter. You both conceived her. I am here to jog your memory lane. Like any parents, you protect her. Oh, you do. She starts to grow up. She hits her puberty. Her flat chest is not flat anymore. She is beautiful. You get worried. You ask her where she is heading to. How many friends does she have? Are they all girls? Vagina-ist? Oh no?? There are boys too? More boy-friends than girls? Red alert! Be careful. Infant, child, teenage. She is growing up. You get worried. You share her awful stories of what happens to vagina owners. She feels scared. She looks down her vagina and wishes things were easier if she had a penis? Brr. She brushes off the idea. She is straight. No way. But she still questions her existence as a girl. She thinks the world is cruel. Ruthless. Living monsters.
February, the month of valentine. Valentine day, the day when every couple meet and spend nice time with each other, share gifts. The seven days valentine week starting from rose day to Valentine day is the special week in February for all the lovers in the world. We have tons of amazing activities planned all month long.

This valentines is the first valentine with my new love so, this month is so special to me as for others. But this western culture has brought many problems with love.

Last year during this time, ‘We’ were set to collect resolutions from you to see what you had in stored for yourself in 2017. I hope you achieved what you had set out for. Years add up in our lives and we scribble our goals into words for the year (and forget, that’s what happens for most of us). We set goals. We set targets. We dream about our dream. We set goals to buy a house in the future, dream to become a millionaire, buy cars and all the expensive luxuries you can imagine of. Today, as you read this, ask yourself, ‘Are our goals limited to materials? Is earning money your only motivation? Should money be your ONLY motivation?’ Hey, don’t get me wrong. Money drives you to work but is it the only force? Stop setting goals that are too materialistic. In the end what is the purpose of all the bills you have in your wallet, or cards, if you do not have a single person to share your meal with. Stop wasting your time trying
