Many tiny feeble drops make a meaningful help

थोपा थोपा गरी समुन्द्र बन्छ भने जस्तै NESAS लाई पनि सबै AUSTRIA वासी नेपाली दाजु-भाई दिदी-बहिनीहरुले सक्दो सहयोग गरिदिए देखि नेपाली र नेपालको हितको निम्ति यहाँहरु कै सल्लाह र सुझाव अनुसार परोपकरी क्षेत्रमा सहयोग गर्ने नेसासले अपेक्षा राखेको छ.

सम्पूर्ण नेसास Executive Members र सल्हाकारसाथीहरुबाट मासिक केही रकम सहयोग प्राप्त हुने क्रममा केही साथीहरुबाट सहयोग प्राप्त भईसकेको छ र केही साथीहरुले Dauerauftrag (Durational Contract or Online Banking) गर्नु भाको छ.

आशा छ, तपाईं सबैको मद्दतले हामी यो शुभ कार्यमा धेरै हदसम्म सफल हुनेछौं.
e-Banking गर्न चाहने साथीहरुलाई -

Nepalesischer Kultur- und Sozialverein
SPARDA BANK, Vienna, Austria
Konto Nr. 18410001108, BLZ 14000

साथीहरुको केही सुझाब र सल्लाहको अपेक्षा राख्दछौं.

Please comment and share!

यस्तो पनि सुनियो।

केही पहिले विद्यार्थी भिसामा आएका नेपाली साथीहरु केही अन्य लोभी नेपालीहरुको आर्थिक मोहपाशमा परेर आर्थिक संकट र मानसिक यातना सहनु परेको परोक्ष रुपमा सुन्नमा आयो. आफ्नै नजिकका साथीहरुबाट पाएको पिडा र मानसिक तनाबका कारण उनी नेपालै फर्के, ती साथीहरु नेपाल नै फर्केको खबर सुन्दा दु:ख पनि लाग्यो र हाम्रो सम्पर्कमा आउन नसक्नु भएकोमा क्षोभ पनि भयो. उहाँहरुको सम्पूर्ण समस्या नै निराकरण गर्न नसके पनि केही सहयोग पक्कै नै गर्ने थियौं र ती लोभी पापीहरुको जालो पनि च्यात्न कोशिश गर्ने थियौं.

आगामी दिनहरुमा यस्ता व्यबहार नहुन दिनको निम्ती हामी ( NESAS Austria ) सम्पूर्ण नयाँ साथीहरुलाई (नेपाली सांस्कृतिक र सामाजिक संस्था ) मा सम्पर्क गरी त्यस्ता समस्याहरु छलफल गरि दिनुहुन अनुरोध गर्दछौ।

Austrian Government passes new "Bleiberecht"


The Austrian Government has taken an important decision regarding the "Right of Residence" regarding the Refuge-Seekers on 12th March 2009. The new Law will come into enforcement just from the 1st. April 2009 however.
A famous German Daily named Kurier published on the 12th March 2009 a small news about it. I have translated it into Nepali for those, who have difficulty in understanding it in German.
The Translation of a News-Clip is followed by the scanned clip.



लेखको नेपालीमा रुपान्तरण

आरिगोना : बासको अधिकारले "स्थिती सप्रिंदैन"
कानून-परिवर्तन - राष्ट्रियसभामा निर्णय आज, तर १. अप्रिलदेखि मात्र लागु


आउँदो १. अप्रिलदेखि वैदेशिक अधिकारसंबन्धी केही महत्वपूर्ण परिवर्तनहरु लागु हुँदै छन्।
त्यसको निर्णायक बूँदा :


विदेशीहरुलाई यस्तो अधिकार प्राप्त हुनेछ, मानवीय बसाईंको निम्ति आवेदन गर्न पाउनेछन्। "अहिलेसम्म यो एउटा "क्षमा-अधिकार" थियो", भनी प्रष्ट्याउँछन् भियनास्थित कारितासका कानूनविद् गेओर्ग आट्च्वाङ्गर।
संवैधानिक अदालतको एउटा निर्णय अनुसार यस्तो कानून परिवर्तनको खाँचो परेको थियो। विशेष गरी, ती पुराना भनिने मुद्दाहरुको देशमा बस्न पाउने अर्थमा राम्रो आशा छ, उनीहरुको शरणार्थी-आवेदन निर्णय-प्रक्रियाको हरेक तहमा अस्वीकृत भएकै अवस्थामा पनि।
पुराना आवेदन भन्नाले ती मानिसहरु हुन्, जो अप्रिल् १,२००४ र त्यो अघिदेखि अस्ट्रियामा निरन्तर रुपले त्यसै गरी गृह मंत्रालयका अनुसार "धेरैजसो कानूनी"रुपले अल्झी बसेका छन् र जसको मुद्दाको फैसला असफल भएको होस्।


मानवीय आधारमा बसाईं-भीसा दिईने निर्णायक आधारहरु बासस्थान, काम (वा शिक्षा) र जर्मन भाषाको ज्ञान हुन्। भविष्यमा एउटा सल्लाहकार समितीले, जसमा सहयोगी संस्थाहरु तथा शहर-नगरपालिकाका प्रतिनिधीहरु हुन्छन्, गृहमन्त्रीलाई सल्लाह दिने भए पनि अन्तिम निर्णय गृहमन्त्री कै हुन्छ।


चलिरहेको शरणार्थी-मुद्दाको सन्दर्भमा, ती मुद्दाहरु हालका निम्ति जाँच मात्र गरिनेछ।


गत केही वर्षदेखि अस्ट्रियामा बस्न पाउनु पर्ने अधिकारको निम्ति लडिरहेकी एक जना कोसोभो मूलकी केटी आरिगोना चोगायलाई (माथि तस्वीर) अस्ट्रियन सरकारले धेरै लामो प्रक्रिया पछि केही महिना अघि मात्र त्यस्तो अधिकार प्रदान गरेको छ। तिनै आरिगोनाको बारेमा उनैका वकील हेल्मुट ब्लूमले कूरियर दैनिकलाई बताए - "यो नयाँ बस्न पाउने अधिकारको कानूनले आरिगोनाको स्थितीमा सुधार आउनेछैन।" आरिगोना २००७ सालको शिशिर मौसममा, कोसोभोमा प्रत्यार्पण गरिने डरले लुकिन्, केही अघि मात्र उनीले शरणका निम्ती आवेदन गरिन्।यो नयाँ बसाईंको कानून एक वर्ष अघि आएको भए, पुरानो मुद्दाको हिसाबले मानवीय भिसाको निम्ती उनीको अवस्था अहिलेको भन्दा बेस हुन्थ्यो। वकिल ब्लूम तैपनि आशान्वित छन्।

Opportunities and Threats
Nepal still faces rampant poverty, regional imbalance, increasing social divide and numerous political, social, economic and cultural problems. These problems are not only manifest in the daily lives of the people, but have led to violent conflicts at the national, regional and local levels. Recent political developments after the success of Jana Andolan II (aka People's Movement II), including a momentum for negotiation Nepal’s development policies, strategies and priorities, opportunities and threats and moving towards the participatory democracy, are, understandably, at the forefront of the concerns and activities of all those involved in promoting the emergence of a ‘New Nepal’.
It is, thus, important that politicians, policy makers, scientist, development community as well as the people at large reflect and review Nepal ’s recent past and develop appropriate strategies- based on a fresh perspective and analysis.

Support to Flood of Koshi Flood

Humanitarian Support to Koshi Flood Victim, Nepal
Thousands of persons of Kusaha, Haripur, Shreepur, Loukahi, and Bhokraha Village Development Committees (VDC) of Sunsari district, Nepal have fled their homes after the swollen Sapatakoshi (Koshi) River damaged an embankment in western Kusaha immediately inundating dozens of settlements in the VDCs. Apart from these VDCs, 7 more VDCs were also partly affected. Two spurs in western Kusaha VDC started to erode on 17 August 2008 and it damaged the embankment the same night. Settlements in the eastern bank of the Saptakoshi River started to be submerged from 18 August. The floods have caused significant damage to lives, livelihoods and infrastructure. Bridges and culverts have collapsed. Drinking water and electricity supplies, schools and public buildings are destroyed and many private houses, property, domestic animals and corpses were swept away. The Ministry of Home Affairs estimates that about 20,000 families (more than 100 thousands persons) have been directly affected and displaced.

We kindly request all of Diaspora and friends of Nepal who are in Austria either permanently or temporarily, to contribute funds to support relief efforts for the flood victim, Nepal. Last year, there was a similar occurrence and the some organizations here contributed to the relief work. As in the past, all contributions can make a difference in the lives of those suffering from this natural calamity. In this regards, we all from Nepalese society, Nepal thank all who have readily responded to such calls in the past and hope you will do so again.
This is a collaborative effort on behalf of the Nepali community and friends of Nepal. We would like to assure that the collected amount will be handed over to a reliable and reputable relief agency in Nepal.

Technical Enhancements in the NESAS Blog

Since last week, I changed the blog pretty much and tried my best to give it a fresh and better look backed with the state of art tools available on the net. I have chosen many services free of cost like ClusterMaps, SiteMeter and Date and Time Display.

But you would wonder that the Blog Header had cost me the most time than the ClusterMaps, SiteMeter and Date-Time Display together. Becuase the gap between flags of Austria and Nepal and vertically written NESAS' logo seems to have a transparent background, but it is not really so. It has an opaque background. I copied the background from anywhere else and pasted as the background of the flags. So, now it looks as if, it has a transparent background.

SiteMeter has already started functioning, whereas ClusterMaps looks better than SiteMeter, but ClusterMaps has not started functioning. I am planning to bring down SiteMeter from the blog and set ClusterMaps as the standard Hit-Counter. The Date-Time would also change as soon as I get any other free and beautiful Display. But Blogpost accepts certain types of scripting only. So, they have to be tested before they are launched here for long time.

If anyone has some better ideas to improve the blog, I would be indebted to you and would welcome that. Thanks in advance.

Transforming Look of NESAS-AUSTRIA's Blog

Since last three days, I am completely poured on Blogpost- / Blogger.com. Previously, I was using Wordpress, so I found naturally many differneces as well as many similarities too technically.

I personally like the colours of basic instinct - Black and White thereafter comes Blue. Then come all other colours according to the subject and inner sense of the matter to be designed. Like, whenever we talk about Indian Culture or Festival, the first idea that clicks is not a single colour but a blend of many different colours that reflect the colourful festivals or different culture. The same way, over a time, my first choice of Layout for the NESAS-AUSTRIA started to be overloaded with pessimism and gloominess, whereas as an organisation patroning hundreds of Nepali it should be much optimistic.

So all of sudden, I decided to change it to a little more bright, colourful and cheerful.

Technically, Blogpost looks at first site much easier than Wordpress, since most of the options are laid visible directly at the place of necessity. Blogpost accepts JavaScripts and other scripts whereas Wordpress accepts just the HTML codes. About other Widgets that are called Gadget in Blogpost, I am still learning more about the other options and new things. On the right hand side, I have pasted the older face of the blog.

I would thankfully welcome all kinds of comments passed to me.
