दैलेख, असार १३ - चार वर्षदेखि थन्किएर सडेको चामल नष्ट गर्न खोज्दा दैलेखका बासिन्दाले खोसेर लगेका छन् । आफूहरू भोकै बस्नुपरेकाले सडेकै चामल भए पनि खाने तर नष्ट गर्न नदिने उनीहरूको अडान थियो ।
स्थानीय विकास मन्त्रालयलगायत दातृ निकायबाट छानबिन भई मुचुल्का गराएपछि सडेको सबै चामल डढाएर वा गाडेर नष्ट गर्ने निर्णय भएको थियो । खाद्य प्रयोगशालाले जीवजन्तुले समेत खान नहुने प्रतिवेदन दिएपछि १ सय ५६ क्विन्टल चामल नष्ट गर्न चुप्रास्थित खोला बगरमा पुर्याइएका बेला स्थानीयले आगो निभाएर लुछाचुँडी गरेका थिए । उनीहरूले सदरमुकामबाट नष्ट गर्न ल्याइँदै गरेको चामल ट्याक्टरबाटै पनि लुटेका थिए ।
सडेको चामल खान नमिल्ने र खोलामा बगाउँदा पनि प्रदूषित हुने भएकाले जलाउने र पुर्ने निर्णय भएको थियो । नष्ट गर्न लगिएका चामल खोस्न थालिएपछि त्यसतर्फ लैजान लागेका दोस्रो खेपका तीन ट्याक्टर र एक ट्रक चामल बुधबार बिहान सदरमुकाम फर्काइएको ट्याक्टर चालकले बताए ।
न्ाष्ट गर्नुपर्ने च्ाामल लिएर भाडामा गएका ड्राइभर मंगलबार चुप्रामा रातभर सुत्न पाएनन् । गाडिसकिएको चामल पनि मंगलबार राति २ बजेसम्म लाकुरी गाविससम्मका गाउँले आएर ओसार्न थालेपछि आफूहरू गाडी कुरेर जाग्राम बसेको अर्का ट्याक्टरका खलासीले बताए ।
नष्ट गर्न नसकी बुधबार बिहान फिर्ता ल्याइएको चामलसमेत सदरमुकामस्थित नमुना बस्तीका बासिन्दाले गोदाममा भित्र्याउन दिएनन् । वादी समुदायका ती बासिन्दाले नष्ट गर्नुको साटो उक्त चामल आफूहरूले पाउनुपर्ने माग राखेका थिए ।
नष्ट गर्न आएका कर्मचारीले सडेको चामल खान नमिल्ने बताए पनि कतिले चामल झिकेर गोदामनजिकै भतेरसमेत लगाए । 'मैले त गाडीमुनि बसेर यही चामल पकाएर खाएँ, मीठै लाग्यो,' उक्त बस्तीकी वृद्धा नैना नेपालीले भनिन् ।
सदरमुकाममा सित्तैमा चामल बाँड्ने हल्लाले अरू काममा बजार आएकाहरूसमेत बोरा किन्दै गोदामतिर कुदेका थिए । वरपरका गाउँबाट बोरा बोक्दै सदरमुकाम आउने क्रम दिनभर जारी रह्यो ।
स्थानीयले नष्ट गर्न तथा गोदाममा राख्न पनि नदिएपछि ६ राजनीतिक दलका नेता, प्रमुख जिल्ला अधिकारी, स्थानीय विकास अधिकारीसमेतको बैठक बसेको थियो । बैठकले उक्त चामल खान अयोग्य भन्दै बिहीबार गाड्ने गरी साँझ प्रहरी कार्यालय नजिक राख्ने निर्णय गरेको थियो । निर्णय कार्यान्वयन गर्न जिविस जुम्लाले ओभरसियर रामप्रसाद दासलाई दैलेख पठाएको थियो ।
विश्व खाद्य कार्यक्रमले जुम्लामा सञ्चालन गरेको 'कामका लागि खाद्यान्न' कार्यक्रमअन्तर्गतको
६ सय ९५ क्विन्टल उक्त चामल दैलेखमै सडेको हो । दैलेखसम्म मोटरमा ल्याई यहाँबाट बोकाउनुपर्ने भएकाले चामल यहींको एक घरमा भाडा तिरेर राखिएको थियो । विश्व खाद्यले गाडीले ढुवानी गर्ने स्थानसम्म लगिदिने र बाँकी ढुवानीको जिम्मा जिविस र उपभोक्तालाई दिएको थियो ।
यी दुई निकायको लापरबाहीले चामल सडेको कार्यक्रमका जिल्ला प्रतिनिधि नरेन्द्र केसीले बताए ।
कार्यक्रमले काम गरेको ज्यालाबाहेक ढुवानीबापत शतप्रतिशत चामल ज्याला दिने गर्छ । तर जुम्लाबाट दैलेख आएर प्रतिव्यक्ति ४० केजी चामल जुम्ला लैजान १० दिन लाग्ने भएकाले ज्यालाबापतको चामल पनि खाँदै सकिन्छ । त्यसैले उपभोक्ताहरू चामल लिन नआएकाले पनि सडेको हो । दुई वर्षअघि सदरमुकाममा गाडिएको दुई सय क्विन्टल चामल स्थानीय विपन्न परिवारले उतारेर खान लगेका थिए । कतिपयले त्यसलाई मदिरा बनाउन प्रयोग गरेका थिए ।

While the radiologist took the X-ray of this snakes, they found that it has swallowed two bulbs. And, these bulbs are still in good shape and unbroken. Quite interesting and difficult to believe!
This x-ray has been in display in New York exhibition. And, has been the attraction for thousands of Visitors.
Amazing ! Sometimes might be against the nature, but it creates interests among biologist and others.

Doha • Four Asians have been rounded up and produced in a criminal court on charges of cannibalism. They are accused of killing a colleague, also an Asian, and devouring his body, reports Al Sharq.
Rumours had been circulating in the city about a crime where a human flesh had been cooked and eaten. This has been now confirmed.
This is the first such incident of its kind reported not just in Qatar but in the region, the daily said. It pointed out the quartet chose to eat the body of the deceased to hide the fact they had murdered him.
The incident came to light when one of the four accused suffered from severe reactions after eating human flesh and was subsequently rushed to the Emergency Department of Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC).
Doctors attending to him sent him in for an X-ray. The result clearly showed the outline of a human finger in his stomach sending the doctors into a tizzy. They immediately gathered their wits about them and called in the police.
The hospitalised man was taken into custody and confessed to having eaten the flesh of a colleague along with his three cronies. His three accomplices were soon arrested and they admitted to having committed the crime.
The foursome was produced in a criminal court with the prosecution demanding that they be remanded to police custody for further interrogation. The court immediately acceded to the prosecution’s demand.
Legal circles said they presume the accused may be extensively interrogated to find if they had been involved in a similar crime here before.
Meanwhile, a report published recently by an Indian language daily published here identified the four accused as Vietnamese nationals and said their alleged victim was from Nepal. The daily, however, clarified the nationalities were based on rumours.
It is the sad news for all nepalese and vietnamese nationals. That destroys the long history of Asian harmony and friendship. Still the nationality of murdered person is not confirmed. You can find the audio news in nepali about this incident in www.mysansar.com

Around 12 students and teachers, from TIF, orgnised excursion about entomology on June 23 here in Goettingen. The place is the strict nature reserve or protected area which is earlier used by German army is the training site.
There were Sea before 90 million years ago. At present we could see the see bed there. This is managed as the historic and natural site.
This area covers around 200 ha. of forests but managed well and people would like to go there during the weekend as the refreshing site.
In developing country forest is the place to go only for poor, no rich people would prefer to go there. But, in contrast to this, the rich people prefer to go there. What a difference between thinking !
The excursion was quite nice. We caught little bit insects. They range from butterfly, moths, beetle to spiders and so many.
Today, we found the Larix spp. Which is the only pinus species which sheds leaves completely during winter. It can grow even in Siberia. Interessante ! There were some damage due to the bark beetle. They every fortnightly use to monitor the growth and infestation of insects, pests. When they find the infestation by bark beetle, they use to cut the tree and burn everything. The bark borer use to bore the bark and make channels inside.
Inside the forest, we could find one stone well, that was 15oo years old. That proves that there was the settlement before that period. At the end, we were offered nice cakes prepared by Dr. Sergio Angeli and we finished our excursions around 1 pm.

The Giessen university is the 400 years old university and more than 22 thousands students are currently studying there. The University was established on 1607 AD.
On the second day, there were lots of lectures in different subjects and they were quite fruitful. They organised the summer party at the renowned castle of Rohanhuassen (?).
It was quite nice and beautiful. Everything were quite good except we missed Asiatic food, especially rice, pulse and vegetable.
During the whole programme, they took care of even the minute thing. From meal to breakfast, from couselling to kinder care, they impresed all.
On the third day, we visited another City Marburg. It is the old city and quite beautiful. There is the famous university of Marburg which is also around 500 years old. What a long educational history ! They have maintained the historic buildings in the same conditions as it was in the past. Very beautiful and impressive city is the MARBURG.
We are very grateful to DAAD for providing this wonderful opportunity. We could experience the German cultures of pleasant hospitality and friendship. They are caring and daring for us. Danke schön fur alle.

Parliament passed the constitutional amendment late on Wednesday. It requires a two-thirds majority to end the monarchy.
The king has become increasingly sidelined since being forced to restore parliamentary democracy last year.
Power to remove
"If the king is found to be creating any serious hurdles or planning a conspiracy to disrupt the special assembly election planned for November, the parliament now has the power to remove him," Parliamentary Speaker Subash Nemwang told the Associated Press news agency.
Officials say that there are no plans at the moment to depose the king, whose future will be decided at a meeting of the special assembly after it is elected in November.
Experts say that parliament has given itself the power to remove him because of the possibility that he might want "to conspire" against the polls.
King Gyanendra relinquished his authoritarian powers in April 2006 after weeks of pro-democracy protests.
Since then he has lost most of his powers and is no longer head of the army. He is now seldom seen in public, and does not often go outside of his palace in Kathmandu.
The Shah dynasty has provided monarchs for Nepal for the last 238 years.

Recently World Conservation Society New York has identified some mysterious facts about wildlife in Sudan, Africa.
Around 800,000 numbers biggest herd of wildlife eg. deer, ganzelle, and other species have been spotted. The BBC, has disclosed this news few days ago.
And, also these wildlife were spotted while migrating. The migrating took place due to the conflict and fieourcious fighting of rebellions and government army. That disturbed their habitat and forced them to leave their habitat.

In Germany mainly 4 species dominates the whole forestry. The first most is Norwegian Spruce (33%), Pine ( ca. 25%), Beech (14%) and Oak (10%). Among the exotic species are the Douglas fir is the major one. Other species found here are Maple (3 species, Acer palatinoides, Acer pseudoplatinoides, Acer species), Cherry tree (Prunus arbreum), Birch (Betula pendula), Black pine, Robinia pseudoacacia, Hedgel Nut, Horn bean etc. But there shares are very little.
Governments now focussing on to increase the broad leaved species whereas the private industry are opposing it because there most of machines and technology are based on coniferous species so they donot want to replace it towards broadleaved species.
In Germany, all the forest owner has the societal responsibility. They are not allowed to do whatever they like to do on their forest. They have to strictly follow the management prescriptions, and the governmental agencies use to provide the technical services to them. But this service are not free, they have to pay for this. Also, they monitor the activities implementing in the forest, they charge large penalty for non obliging the rules and management plan.
Each and every peace of forest land has well registered on data base systems. Anybody can find all the data of any forest. Even which forester had planted which tree could be found. More than 250 years of data are available. Quite interesting !
The largest tree in the world is Sequia deudram gigantica. This tree is still live in the USA and it is around 2700 years old. The tree has 11 meter diameter at breast height and 83 meter tall. Some of its branch have 2 meter diameter. The volume of that single tree is estimated around 1600 cubic meter. We can see the tree of same species planted in Goettingen 25 years ago (see the photo).
In Germany, they have already left the plantation activities. Now they are promoting and solely dependent on natural growth of the forest. Therefore, forest nursery owners are loosing the game.

Lots of protests going on here in Germany against the globalisation and exploitation of developed countries to poor countries. I personally agree the developed countries have not accorded with their voice of global poverty reduction, and natural conservation, climate changes etc.
Police are not behaving as the police of democrat country here in Germany. They are using water cannon, sudden raid and others to the peaceful protestant.
