My Weekend (March 23-25) Photos and Video cast

My Weekend (March 23-25) Photos and Video cast

On Friday March 23

I went Union Square to experience the urban lifestyle of NYC. Union Square is one of my favorite hangout places in the city, which is diverse and moving place too. There was Occupy Wall Street protest going on. So I spend some time roaming around the park and took some pictures, spoke with protesters and capture their activities. Interestingly, some protesters were meditating in front of the Hindu Goddess statues, they light the incense and play bell and Sankha,(Sankha, is a conch shell of ritual and religious importance in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is the shell of a large predatory sea snail -From Wikipedia)

Here is some video conversation and the photo of the event.

Then, later in the evening I went to reading at New York University.I had an opportunity to participate in ‘Poem as World/World as Poem’Reading at New York University. Pulitzer Prize winner Natasha Trethewey and distinguised poet Yuyutsu RD Sharma read their fresh work at the event.

Please watch or listen some poems of the events.

Saturday, March 24th

I went to see the concert of Tom Wopat, at Queens Theatre, Flushing Meadows Park. I simply loved Tom Wopat country and soothing music. He was awesome.

I got a complementary ticket for the show from Queens Theatre. So I want to Thank Queens Theatre for their generosity.

I hope you had also fruitful time too.

Hope to share and see you next weekend.

Thank you,

Sahadev

Occupy Wall Street Protest NYC (Video)

I took this video on March 21 around 9pm from inside our school building near Bowling Green. We were coming home after school but dozens of students struck in the lobby of the building for few minutes. After protesters passed by they opened the back door and we came to the street.

The huge protest and loud chanting was going on the street. Because of the police investigation and protest some of the trains were not stopping at Union Square also. Last night, many commuters had hard time to reach home. Video by Sahadev for HimaliSworharu-Online Radio http://www.nepaliradio.org

छोटो कथा:क्षतिपूर्ति

छोटो कथा:क्षतिपूर्ति

युद्द निरन्तर चलिरहेछ|मर्नेहरु शहिद र मार्नेहरु बहादुरमा परिणत भै रहेछन र यी दृश्यहरु   हेरी रहेछन मानब अधिकार कर्मीहरु|सरकार मरिजानेहरुको नाममा क्षति पूर्ति दिन पनि पछी हटेको छैन| “गएको साता भएको हिंशामा ज्यान गुमाउनेहरुको परिवारले हालै क्षतिपुर्ति पाए” भनेर दैनिक पत्रिका,रेडियो र टेलिभिजनले ब्रेकिंग न्युज बजाई पनि  रहेका छन्||शान्ति,सुरक्षा र सुब्यबस्था  सबै देशका सबै सरकारको प्राथमिकतामा पनि परेको  छ| तर पनि युद्द जारी छ |हजुर बाको बा ले लड्नु  भो युद्द, हजुरबा ले आँखा अगाडी  देखु भो युद्द, बाले आगनमै भेट्नु भो युद्द,अहिले म भोगी  रहेछु युद्द|यसै क्रममा हिजो फेरी अर्को  भिडन्तमा परेर   ६ जनाको ज्यान गयो|सरकारले दुख मनाउ गर्यो,सरी भन्यो,अब त्यस्तो हुन्न भन्यो र यसपाली अलि थपेर क्षति पूर्ति प्रतिव्यक्ति २० लाख पुर्यायो|क्षति पूर्ति लिन आउनु पर्यो भनेर सरकारले सूचना पत्र पत्रिका  सबै तिर छाप्यो.. तर  क्षतिपुर्ति लिन कोहि  आएनन…किनभने हिजो  मर्ने सबै ६ जना एकै परिवारका थिए|

Tree’s Vagina

So Tree has vagina too!?

Perhaps not, But when I took pictures in the central park in the spring like weather, I noticed a tree’s one spot look alike… at least in my vision. Its spring and most of the trees are leafless and look so dried. Soon all trees will be covered by beautiful green leafs. The birds will create their new nest. In the spring, the nature gets the new life. I think the Vagina is a symbol of the spring because new life begins from there..

So I should call it Tree’s Vagina.

What do you think?

“Dear March,
You are budding,
You are promising!
And you are a muse of intensity!
Dear March,
You are song of birds,
You are dance of twigs
And you are a month of maternity!”
