About Me

← That’s me on the left.

Born, raised and educated  schooled in Kathmandu, the safest way I can describe myself is by saying I’m an observer, a listener and a backpacker. Safe descriptions apart, I go by the name Darshan Karki. ( Find me on Twitter and on LinkedIn)

William Somerset Maugham once said “We do not write because we want to; We write because we have to.”

I blog for that simple reason. I blog because I have to.

Here are some of my entries which will give you an idea about what exactly I have to say:

Nepali Society
1. What’s Wrong With Us ?
2. State & Rural Development
3. Ethnicity Debate in Nepal
4. Newa Rajya Strike In Pictures
5. Intellectual Poverty
6. Slogans Are Not Solutions
7. Constituent Assembly Polls in Nepal: I Voted Did You?

8. Bangalore, Balram Halwai and the Nepali Identity

Public Bus Rides in Kathmandu

1. Ice-breaker from Dilli
2. Of rides you don’t know of
3. Rush Hour
4. From Nepal Yatayat to comrades


1. Maoist Strike: Thoughts and Afterthoughts

2. Live

3. Thoughtmandu

P.S Sorry, there are no shortcuts to knowing a blogger.
