To those who are out of country or in foreign land, still have strong affection and respect towards culture and tradition they had to put off for their better future. The physical appearance may be different but spiritually, socially and mentally, they believe Mustang is our identity, soul and integrity. They gather in every festivals and occasion so as they do in Homeland on their traditional dress and traditional way on busy city like New York. So, I called it Accent of Mustang.

Can we ???

If something goes out of expectation, there we see a lot of mistakes and we keep on saying if I have been there; I will..?

But can we?

Everyone sleep with dream and just wake up to reach destiny. To reach the destiny, we need passion, hard work, potential and support. I might be actor, but I need audience to appreciate work and to realize what I have done and social interaction.

The change that we want is not merely change in institution policy, rule and regulation and leadership but it must be change that start from each and every individual.

We talk about global market, and opportunity and accessibility. In fact, we consume more, besides looking forward to potential of productivity within.

In trans-Himalayas like Upper Mustang, agricultural land ( wheat or buck wheat) being converted into apple farm in response to present market value of apple.

In consideration, while world is talking and addressing about food security and water security, will apple farm be reliable source of income and sustain economical and social life in the Himalayas ?

Can we make improvement in social and economy of people just via infrastructure development and road expansion without analysing environment destruction and cost that have to pay later on ?

Before, saying one can do everything and have possibility, there must be an option to preserve, protect and promote environment.

Need is development but sustainable development, job we seek must not be temporary but long term to ensure and make own heart to hear why I have been here among billions of people.

Can we make a difference just utilizing potential and skill we have?

Every birds may not means to fly up in sky, like a beautiful Penguin bird in Antarctica with its unique existence and adaptability.

Human civilization were started on river basins and where there is easily availability of water resources. Human has learned how to lit fire and now to live sophisticated life surrounded by modern tools and technology.

Those who used to travel around the globe for new discovery and expedition, now become synonym to space travel and new discovery. Moreover, people are shifting and travelling from one destination to another seeking better life, cultivable land and availability of resources.

However, there are some unpredictable reasons for human re-settlement. Besides, the beauty and warmness of homeland, people are seeking for new destiny to avoid danger and betterment of future generation. People are not satisfied and unhappy to leave their parental homeland and to see desertification of their homeland. Despite, better new destiny, they faces a lot of problems before the resettlement.

Due to climate change, people are being climate refugee. They are seeking their new destiny with more priority on water resources and education. The reason behind the climate refugee are water scarcity, ecological changes, desertification of land and flood or landslides due to unpredictable rainfall.

So, it is more crucial to take new step to tackle the difficulties. People must be aware of climate change and its consequences to step forward with plans and policies for conservation, protection and promotion of natural environment. It is better to maintain policy and habit of recycle, reuse and reduce.

THE INITIATIVE

CLIMATE CHANGE is a global issue, that never let any nation being untouched from its impact. Water scarcity is one of major consequences resulted from climate change. People in remote areas are praying for snowfall and rainfall and in urban area are queuing for water. Water is mother liquor, in absence no life on living planet is possible.

Now and then WATER is in need of dollar and DOLLAR  is in search of water. In early days, I remember of buying Kerosene but today I buy a water with no guarantee of purity. Shall I called it, modernization or de-modernization. People assumed that if we paid a dollar for packed goods, there is no need of quality check and the date.

There is still need of cooperation between the DOLLAR and WATER. We dream a house of dollar but not a water at least. People are investing more dollar in constructions, technologies and to make life comfort. Urbanization, globalization and climate change has made realization that do something not only for own but to others who shares environment with you.

Not merely someone but everyone travel around the globe for better future destiny or a destiny for higher education, career opportunities and to live standard life and to educate oneself through knowledge and experience.

With aim of positive change in life; economic, social and educational status, every year people around the globe traveling from place to place.. It sound great for a achievers and the rest. There dream is with them and destiny too.

However expectation same, that is a success and impact his/her performance either in homeland or abroad. The achievement in any field by our brothers and sister, realize happiness, feeling of proud, dignity and nationality.

Nowadays, undergraduate and postgraduate students, are being involved in welfare and improvement of living standard of people of own homeland through initiative ideas, sharing knowledge and creating co-operative and mutual understanding among villagers. Whether you are in foreign land or in homelands, it is not subject matter to deal with here. But I would like to mentioned why we couldn’t fight and act for betterment of place that is in search of water, food and improvement in life. Lets be part of the INITIATIVE from where you are and by doing the assignment that you can do or perform.

The “earthrise” TV show by AL ZAZEERA network, has come up with global problems and issues along with initiative ideas, solution created by Indigenous people and improvement. It has been sharing global issues and solution inspiring and motivating people stand at own place and fight against the problems or issues.

“Group Up” Initiative of Asia Green City Singapore and founder, says something about how important is green environment and ecological balance. World Richest person Bill Gates has been investing a lot of dollar in Green Energy project and revolution. Image result for green energy project by bill gate

 

So, our dream is to deal with water scarcity and to cooperate for green environment and healthy life style . It is a message that the Next desire and want to share. With hope of your support and motivation to implement those thing into action, we conclude here with “GREEN ENVIRONMENT, HEALTHY EARTH”.

UNTOLD STORY OF HIMALAYA

THE DIFFERENCE

THERE IS THE DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE, NATURE AND WILDLIFE SPECIES BETWEEN THE PAST AND PRESENT.

THE DAYS OF THE PAST HAS BECOME A STORY AND NATURE, ENVIRONMENT, BEAUTY AND RESOURCES HAVE BECAME PART OF PHOTOGRAPHY THAT WE HAVE TO STARE AT PAYING CERTAIN AMOUNT.

IN SEARCH OF ICE OR SNOW, WE HAVE TO TRAVEL TO EITHER ARTIC OR ANTARTICA OR JUST HAVE TO USE REFRIGERATOR.

THE THICK ICE ON WHICH A CHILDREN USED PLAY SKATING, YAK HERDER OR SHEPHERD  USE AS BRIDGE TO ACROSS THE RIVER  TO REACH NEXT GRAZING AREA DURING THE WINTER. NOW AND THEN, IT HAS BEEN HIDING EITHER IN MOUNTAIN PEAK OR IN SHADY PLACE WHERE SUN STRUCK FOR A SECOND.

A BEAUTIFUL BIRDS THAT NATURAL MUSICIANS, I COULDN’T HEAR AND SEE THEM IN NUMBER THAT I HAVE MENTIONED IN THE STORY.

DIFFERENT HERBS OR SHRUBS, FAMOUSLY THE MUSHROOM, FLAVOR AND DISHES OF THE HIMALAYA DURING THE SUMMER OR MONSOON, NOW ARE GROWN AT HOME. BUT ITS FLAVOUR AND BEAUTY THAT WE CAN GET AND SEE IN NATURE DURING ITS GROWTH, HAVE NO LONGER EXISTENCE.

DURING SNOWFALL, WHEN WILDLIFE SPECIES THE BIRDS, WOOLLY HARE AND THE REST, IT REALLY MAKES A DAY AWESOME WITH THEIR PRESENCE.

SNOW LEOPARD, WOLF, JACKAL AND FOX, I GOT AFRAID, NOW GOING FAR AND FAR AS THEY ARE AFRAID OF ME.

A LITTLE FAWN, JUST FOLLOWING HER MOTHER ACROSS THE CLIFFS, HILLS AND MOUNTAINS THAT GAVE COURAGE TO FOLLOW ELDERS AND MOVE AHEAD ARE LIVING A RESTLESS LIFE IN THE ZOO. MUSK DEER AND TIBETAN ANTELOPE ARE VANISHING ALONG WITH THE SNOW OF HIMALAYA.

THE YAK, CHEESE, CURD AND MILK WERE FAVOURITE AND LENTILS OF HIMALAYA, NOW REPLACED BY POWDER MILK. AND CREATED SHORTAGE OF FUELS.

A BEAUTIFUL DRESS, FOLK MUSICS AND INSTRUMENT ARE REPLACED BY WESTERN DRESS AND ROLL & ROCK MUSICS AND INSTRUMENT.

WHILE TALKING ABOUT CULTURE AND TRADITION ONE MAY PRAISE HIM/HER BUT STILL SAY HAVE TO CHANGE AS PER TIME. BECAUSE THERE WILL BE HUMILIATION AND BULLYING BY OTHERS.

EASINESS AND COMPLACENT IS THERE, IN PRESENCE OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY AND GADGETS AND SOCIAL MEDIA. STILL THERE ARE HUNGER, THIRST, POLLUTION, DISEASES AND GUNS AS CAUSING PEOPLE DEATH. SO HAVE TO STRUGGLE. SO PEOPLE THEMSELVES CREATE A PROBLEMS AND WANT TO SOLVE.

SO DIFFERENCE IS WE CREATE A PROBLEM AND FIND SOLUTION WHILE IN PAST PEOPLE CREATE A SOLUTION FOR PROBLEMS.

ITS THOUGHT OR OPINIONS, EXPECT CHANGE TO MOVE AHEAD, COURAGE AND IDEAS.
