Free WIFI by KMC in Kathmandu

Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC ) has installed free wifi at public places which many of you might see it as a free service that one is getting. But from a cyber security perspective giving free wifi at public places without registration is the most insecure step towards making a system vulnerable from attacks and threats.  to be very precise, it makes the people connected more vulnerable and more prone to cyber attacks and other cyber crimes.

When you use a open and free network there is always a risk being attacked as there are no measure to secure your line. You never know who all are connected within the network and what kinds of software they have so being open in the open network is completely out of logic.

The best way to secure yourself when you are using a public wifi or open network is use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) that safeguards your details.
VPN extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across the VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.

I think before giving free wifi the KMC should considered the risk of cyber security and further work towards raising awareness of cyber security within their departments and then to the public.

It may look or sound as a simple step but it can have drastic results

Organized crime rising in Nepal: High profile people targetted

After the cold blood murder of Sharad Kumar Gauchan the President of Federation of Contractors’ Association of Nepal, the security situation of Nepal seems to worry everyone.  What rich, what poor you need to be sacred of the GUNDARAJ or the organized crime that is currently evolving within the  country. Every other political party has an affiliation and every other  gunda is being offer a safe passage through the political system.  Even the Gunda in the corner has a political affiliation and every other police man has a soft corner  with a political party. In such situation what can we expect.

Gauchan  was shot dead by unidentified group of people in the mid-day at the center of the city Kharibot in Shantinagar on Monday on his way to office at Anamnagar.  Why did this happen ? In a country where the gun and ammunition are illegal with in the reach of public except for few how could a high profile person be shot dead on a busy road and no body cared........... 

He was attacked near his home where his car was first attacked with a brick and 3 rounds were fired at his head and chest. The shooter were professional who aimed for kill shot and as per the current investigation people fail to note the number of the motorcycle and the face of the shooter. After the attack, the attackers flee on a motorcycle.  He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

According to police, “Gauchan was being threatened and was being demanded money by Ramesh Bahun group who had reportedly asked for donations from Gauchan recently. Similarly, a person had called in to take the responsibility of the attack.”

Organized crime seems to be growing where the political parties and political leaders are giving way for such criminal to further expand their work and abilities. The police is limited with in the walls of law where as money and power hugely influences their  work.

Gauchan was elected president of FCAN in 2014. He was also the vice-president of International Federation of Asian and Western Pacific Contractors’ Association.

PM Sher Bahadur Dueba Please stop making fool of yourself

Recently Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba addressed students at World Leaders Forum Colombian University program  where he was asked to face many questions of the students.
Showcasing his poor skills of  English, he demonstrated a very sad and deprived image of lack of competency and skill. For a head of the state being not able to speak English is not a question of competence but trying to fake it is a question of intelligence and competence. He demonstrated a  limited image of why Nepalese leaders all over are treated so badly.

If you cannot speak English then please do not try to fake it. Mr. Deuba it is not Nepal that what ever you do will escape by saying it will work. You are representing Nepal in an international forum and if you cannot do that than you have no rights to even represent. 

The more you try is the more mockery you make out of yourself. so before going to any international  event either take a translator or go to school and learn speaking english.

As soon as you land to Nepal start working on your speaking English it is not like scolding a student in Nepal, you seriously need to work on your speaking skills.

A victim of Trolling for being an Internet Activist in Nepal

I had never thought  that someday I would be trolled in a way where my work done for awareness would be used in a in significant way of hampering others. During 2015 I made this video about Local ISP susbisu for their bad internet service and it was uploaded in youtube for awareness purpose. The video can be viewed below which is in a pure form of Freedom of Expression(FoE) than any hate of speech.

Recently last week on out of the blues, I started receiving friendship request on facebook and people were putting in questions saying did you made the subisu video. I was surprised to know why people were after my video that too after 2 and half years. The thing that happened was one of the hackers hacked the subisu website and integrated my video there. 

The news went viral and facebook pages trolled my screenshot where people assumed me to be the hacker. I was kind of overwhelmed to the fact that I knew how to handle the situation but it made me feel the vulnerability of how our content and system can be manipulated in desired way.

There is not point of argument about if the hacker  is right or wrong but my concern is my content was for awareness purpose only and to speak up about quality of standard or bad service. I felt abused in many ways of how we upload content and how it gets used in desired ways.

Budget spending at the last hours: A question of efficiency for Nepali Government

As reported by the himalayan times this year the nepal government spent Rs 218.85 billion in the last month of fiscal year 2016-17, that is from mid-June to mid-July. The government spending was Rs 604.64 billion in the first 11 months of the fiscal, which rose to Rs 823.49 billion by the year-end. In between the 10th and 11th month, government spending rose by a whopping Rs 94 billion.The government’s development expenditure increased by two-fold in the last two months. Spending under development budget heading was Rs 90.24 billion by the end of the 10th month of the fiscal. Expenditure went up to Rs 120.1 billion by the end of the 11th month and surged to Rs 204.31 billion by the end of the fiscal year.

Every year the fiscal year of Nepal starts from Sharwan to Ashadh ( July to June) which is in the midst of the rainy season. Every year at the last hour millions of the budgeted amount is poured in various development projects blindly just for the sake of the budget being freeze or lapsed.
The money which should have been used for efficient  management of development work  always lack proper utilization and management in view of last hour. Whether you call it the lack of efficiency or lack of bureaucracy leadership and vision  the development works are forced in view of few months where every things is done.

It is really sad that how the public hard earned tax money is spent in view of the work. Public governance is zero at ground level where political leaders work for the political mandate,  bureaucracy work for their job performance only.  

Sad reality the money which should be spent efficiently and effectively is spent just for the sake of spending which highlights corruption and many other externalities.

Bidhya Devi Bhandari Car scandal

The presidential’s office has proposed for a budget of 160 million to the Nepal government for buying a bullet proof car for the president. It is very sad that in a country with a total population of 30 million and  which has been listed in the least developed country, the office of the president demands the need of a such huge amount of money just for the transportation vehicle. Moreover, if you look at her career or history you would not find any kind of threats or any security issue that she needs such a vehicle.
The Nepal Government has already agreed to provide Rs 40 million for the purpose, the President's office last week proposed  the Ministry of Defense (MoD) to arrange an additional Rs 120 million budget to buy the car of President Bhandari's taste.

According to Republica Daily , " The estimated cost is based on the initial price assessment report prepared by Nepal Army (NA) which has been asked to procure the vehicles. NA reportedly came with the proposal after holding preliminary talks with some car manufacturers."

Just imagine how many schools can be renovated or how many schools can be built in the remote and rural areas. It is not her money its people hard earned tax money which needs proper accountability and transparency .

The Political culture of Nepal has degraded in the luxury where political leaders are more concerned about their facilities and services  than the benefit of the public. It is a very well seen culture that every time a new minister is changed or reinstated, they want a new car and services.

The bottoms line is they do politics in the name of social service where as they use the power and position for their own service  and facility. Ego, corruption, favoritism and Nepotism has become a culture of the system.

What a shame ?

Please do not call yourself  the head of the state call yourself the tax payers money termites

Chudamanui the Tax god

Chudamani Sharma, the  Director General of the Inland Revenue Department was arrested by
the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority(CIAA)  on charges of  corruption on fixation of revenue for various big organization.

The CIAA on preliminary ground of investigation  arrested Chudamani and has  requested a bail amount of Rs 3 billion  which is the highest ever bail amount.

It has been reported that Sharma was involved with  embezzlement over Rs 9 billion and has opened  investigation on  120 files containing higher amount of tax exemption. The anti-graft body has been probing into over 1,000 files related to tax waiver by the TSC.

Chudamani do you consider yourself as a Tax god or what ?

Then why would you do such an act of immoral value which slacked the Nepal government's earning. Did you seriously though that you would escape your act of  shame ?

This guy seriously has the nerve to handle corruption in a more legal way.....

Blood transfusion is not safe in Nepal

According to the breaking news published by the Himalayan times,   "People face HIV infection from the normal transfusion as there is no availability of the test kit to detect the infection of HIV during its window period. What that means is If the blood donor is in his window period of infection, he/ she can pass on the infection to the blood receiver. As it is not detectable in absence of correct test kit. The receiver can get infection. The window period test kit is know as Nucleic Acid Amplification Test which is very expensive.

Sad reality is right now in the international market such window HIV test kit are available but right now here in Nepal it is not used or available.

" यसको अर्थ रगत जुन हामी सुरक्षित छ भन्छै त्यसबाट #hiv सङ्क्रमन​ हुन सक्छ "
