I wanted to change the world

When I was in school, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an school boy, I tried to change my family. Now, as an adult person, I realize….the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made…

The Last Tree

Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money. I conceive that the land belongs to a vast family of which many are dead, few are living, and countless numbers are still unborn. There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew let save it. Trees are happy for no reason, they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers…

Being myself

I don’t want to control the life, I don’t want to control myself. I don’t want to stop making mistakes, only want to learn from it. I lead my life by being myself, without controlling my happiness, others, my future, my hormones. I just let things happens spontaneously and they will come. Sometimes I need to take a break about things that I can’t change in this moment, try to understand the reasons and with other eyes see the situation differently, perhaps better. Today I woke up with hundreds thoughts, feeling like to solve all of them, without giving time…

I am a king

I am King is a statement about all men. We are all descendents of royalty and if we carry ourselves and respect ourselves in that manner and believe in ourselves, then we are all kings.

A note on Biodiversity

Everything in nature is connected and what we are doing to our environment is going to effect us in the long-run. If we’re not careful than one by one they may all become extinct. As biodiversity disappears so do our resources. Biodiversity boosts ecosystem productivity where each species, no matter how small, all have an important role to play. It has long been feared that human activity is causing massive extinctions. Despite increased efforts at conservation, it has not been enough and biodiversity losses continue. The costs associated with deteriorating or vanishing ecosystems will be high. However, sustainable development and…

I have an obligation to myself

Concentrating your life only on making money shows a poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself but when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you will realize your true potential. I need to take up the challenges that we face as a people and make them my own, not because I have an obligation to those who are less fortunate, although I do have that obligation. Not because I have a debt to all of those who helped me to get where I am, although I do have that debt. I need to take…

justice would be served

I come at the point that fear and hesitation prevent me to get lot of my goals, so I decide is to try and look at the world through a child’s eyes. I came to the point that I want something simple rather than what we create in our crazy, unhappy and cruel, mostly confusing adult worlds. I remember as a child that even though I had no responsibilities and freedom all I wanted to do was become an adult and now that I am adult I would like nothing more then to relive those years as a child. I…


An old man lived alone in Janakpur. He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation:Dear Son,I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden because your mother always loved planting time. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over….

A Real Story

10th grade As I sat there in English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so called “best friend”. I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine. But she didn’t notice me like that, and I knew it. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before and handed them to her. She said “thanks” and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I wanted to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends,…

I am no body but Myself

The whole my past life I had been looking for something and everywhere I turned someone tried to let know me what it was. I received their answers too; however they were often in disagreement and even self- disagreement. I was immature. I was looking for myself and asking everyone apart from me questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that I am nobody but myself.
