Site on Nepal Bandh( Nation-wide Strike Schedule)

It's ironical to see site like www.nepalbandh.com

I am personally not mocking the site but the reason of it's existence. Why do we need to have site like this which shows the Nation-wide strike schedules? It's because of the leaders loosing it's credibility and irresponsibility responses it releases from time to time. Then the only way to draw their attention is to organise events like Nepal-wide strike or closure of all offices/businesses across the country.

Now, imitating such acts, even some groups started to make this 'Bandh' happen so frequently for even a small cause. If a taxi driver is insulted by a traffic police, whole traffic is halted by taxi driver union. If a waiter is fired out of job, a whole waiter's union come up and beat the Hotel's manager and then All Nepal Hotel is closed forcibly by them. These are very few examples why so many strikes are taking place.

I'm not totally against this because, if government doesn't listen by words, the only method is to make them heard either by halting whole system or by violence. It's the government whom i want to blame for their irresponsibility.

Well, i don't want to pollute my blog with political issues anymore and yeap that's true. Unlike normal calendar that we use to mark out certain holidays and special occasions, nepalbandh.com is an online calendar to mark out when and where a strike/closure is taking place.

Bandh, also a Nepali word meaning 'closed', is a form of protest. While often means the closing down of markets of a city for the day, but there have been instances of entire nation coming to a standstill. -nepalbandh.com

This site has well served it's purpose. Because, so many times, i felt so bad when i left out of the house and found everything is closed. This is not the only case with me but with whole citizens. Without prior notice and due to immediate Strike, people often find themselves into horrid situation. Thanks to nepalbandh.com , it is somewhat helping us to find what is going on next and so help us to manage our time or may be postpone our schedule at easy time.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
