Value of Time

Time always moves forward. It cannot be measured with price or money. It is however, the most valuable thing in life.
        What we need can be bought but time can never be bought. Time always fleets without any rest. It cannot be controlled or limited by any power. Even the smallest unit of time is more valuable than any of the metals such as gold silver and diamond.
        Time is equally important for all in this vast world. There is a saying “Time and tide wait for no man.” It means that time once lost can never be regained. We should develop the habit of doing everything in right time.
        People who gave great value to time became successful in their lives Those who missed good opportunities of time were never successful.
        Time should always be utilized in good actions. It must not be wasted in idle deeds. Time has great significance for people to make their future bright. If we value our life we must know the value of time. Only then we can be best able to achieve great success in life.

Forests of Nepal

Nepal is rich in forest resources. People there fore say that ‘green forests are the wealth of Nepal’. The forests of Nepal can be classified into these five  parts -
(1)   sub-tropical evergreen: These are found in the regions up to the height of 1200 metres. The rainfall is heavy and temperature is high in areas such as the Terai and the Chure. Trees are tall and thick, and always look green. This type of forest runs from eastern border to western border of Nepal. This type of forest in which sal, sisau, khayar, etc are found is the most important one from the economic point of view.
(2)   Temperate Deciduous Forest: Such a forest is found at the Mahabharat at the height of 2100 metres. It is not thick. In winter it is very cold and most of the leaves of tress fall off. Important trees of this forest are sallo, katus, etc.
(3)   Temperate Coniferous Forest: It is found at the places lied between 2100 metres and 3300 metres of the Mahabharat. As it is cold all the yeaer round, it snows here. Soft wood, useful for making furniture and match sticks, like  sallo, devadaru dhupi, etc.
(4)   Alpine Vegetation: It is at the Himalayan regions and hilly areas The climate here being always dry no tall trees except short grass are found here.
Tundra Vegetation: Situated above 5000 metres, this area is always covered with snow. For these reasons, no trees and plants can grow here.

A place of Historical importance

In Nepal there are a number of places of historical importance. The Kathmandu Valley itself is a place of such importance.
        It is said that the valley of Kathmandu was once a great lake. In course of time the water in it flowed out through a passage and thus it became the present valley.
        Kathmandu always has history in it because many great kings such as Manadeva, Ansuverma, Jayastthiti Malla, prithivi Narayan Shan, Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah all ruled over it. Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu is also known as the city of temples. The temples of Lord Pashupati Nath, Guhyeswari, Lord Krishna in patan, Dakshin Kali, Taleju, etc are situated in this area.
        The fifty-five-windowed palace of Bhaktapur, the Hanuman Dhoka and the Narayanhity palace are the unparalleled instances of Nepalese arts and carvings.

A Domestic Animal I Like Most

There are a number of pet animals in our society. I like all of them more or less. But the cow is a domestic animal I like most.
        The cow is a gently animal. She gives us milk that is a nourishing food to  all of us. Milk is a perfect  food for babies and sick persons. It is milk from which butter, ghee cheese, curd, and many kinds of sweets are made.
        The cow’s dung is used as manure which fertilizes crops, and fuel. The urine of the cow is also used as medicine in some diseases.
        The cow’s dung is used as manure which fertilizes crops, and fuel. The urine of the cow is also used as medicine in some diseases.
        The cow is useful to us even when she is dead. Many things such as shoes, glue, buttons, combs, etc are made of the cow’s ski, hoof, hair, horns and bones, So the cow is one of the most useful domestic animals.

My Aim in Life

Every man in the world must have some aim in life. A man without aim can have no success in life. Different people have different aims in life. Some people want to make wealth. Some wish to acquire knowledge. Some men want to have glory and fame.
        Our country is very poor and is there backward in many aspects. The progress of a country depends upon agriculture, industry and trade. My aim in life is to teach my illiterate villagers without taking any advantage of them.
        First of all, farmers should be taught how good crops can be had. Everybody should be warned in the country that over population is a problem to all. I will try my best to teach uneducated people that the only remedy for the uncontrolled population growth is family planning.

Tihar Festival of Nepal

Nepal, an only Hindu kingdom in the world, enjoys several festivals every year. Tihar is on of such festivals. Tihar is widely celebrated by Hindus as a great festival. It falls on the month of Oct-Nov, at the end of autumn. This celebration lasts for five days.
        Since it is celebrated for five days, it is also rightly called panchak or distinctly Yama Panchak. It is in a sense the Festival of Lights. So people also call it Deepawali or Diwali.
        The specialty of this festival is that the crow, the dog, the cow, the bullock and the brother are worshipped during this period. The first day is the Crow Festival when the crow is worshipped and fed. The second day is worshipped and fed. On this night every house is illuminated with different kinds of lights and lamps. The fourth day is the Bullock Festival when the bullock is worshipped and fed. The fifth and final day is the Brother festival when the brother is worshipped and fed by his sister.

Agriculture in Nepal

Nepal is widely known as an agricultural country. 93% of its people depend on agriculture.
        Total land worth cultivation is limited in our country. Most people remain busy digging and ploughing the limited land to grow more and more crops. However they cannot produce good crops because of the lack of good and technical knowledge. It is true that agriculture in Nepal has a great importance. Many families cannot even survive without the practice of agriculture. Whatever he importance of agriculture might be, no country can achieve real prosperity simply through pure agricultural economy. It is time now that agriculture should be minimized and industry or manufacture should be started.
        We should know how both agriculture and industry can be developed parallelly. Also all the land should not be used for industry only.
