International Day For The Elimination Of Nuclear Weapons

Let's start with a quote from the great scientist Albert Einstein: "I don't know what would happen if there was a third world war, but if there was a fourth world war, stone weapons would be used."
 Why did Einstein say this to challenge this prosperity of development? After all, why did Einstein, the great scientist of the century, see the possibility of losing this background of world development and this height of civilization?

 After all, why does the existence of the world seem to be trapped from time to time?

Along with the practice of modernization of human civilization, the world has started fighting wars with horses, elephants, swords, bows, and shields. World War II ended only after brutal nuclear launches in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan.

 Keep in mind that in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, trees are still unable to grow, and radiation from nuclear weapons still causes various health problems and long-term effects. On August 6, 1945, a nuclear attack killed nearly 200,000 people.

Since nuclear weapons testing began on 16 July 1945, nearly 2,000 have taken place. In the early days of nuclear testing little consideration was given to its devastating effects on human life, let alone the dangers of nuclear fallout from atmospheric tests. Hindsight and history have shown us the terrifying and tragic effects of nuclear weapons testing, especially when controlled conditions go awry, and in light of the far more powerful and destructive nuclear weapons that exist today.

Yet, today around 13,080 nuclear weapons remain. Countries possessing such weapons have well-funded, long-term plans to modernize their nuclear arsenals. More than half of the world’s population still lives in countries that either have such weapons or are members of nuclear alliances. While the number of deployed nuclear weapons has appreciably declined since the height of the Cold War, not one nuclear weapon has been physically destroyed according to a treaty. In addition, no nuclear disarmament negotiations are currently underway.

The General Assembly commemorates 26 September as the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons. This Day provides an occasion for the world community to reaffirm its commitment to global nuclear disarmament as a priority. It provides an opportunity to educate the public - and their leaders - about the real benefits of eliminating such weapons, and the social and economic costs of perpetuating them. Commemorating this Day at the United Nations is especially important, given its universal membership and its long experience in grappling with nuclear disarmament issues. It is the right place to address one of humanity’s greatest challenges; achieving the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.
Meaningful wishes on this day

Sasthi Shradhha

With the commencement of the Sorha Saddha may all the godlike Pitri in the Pitri realm between heaven and earth obtain salvation, may all the Pitri cross the Baitarni River, and may the ancestral love be maintained. Things like fasting, pilgrimage, shraddha, mela, etc., which have been made very risky by the risk of corona infection for the last two years, things are getting a little looser this year.

May the blessings of the ancestors be maintained, may goodness and good wishes are maintained, and we are the remnants of the ancestors in today's form, aren't we?

Tarpan, Diyo Puja, Vishwedeva Brahman, and other pujas can be performed before the appointed time. There is a belief that if the Pinda is not donated at this time, the Pitris will not get it. Sanatana Philosophy largely acknowledges the importance of Pitri in the existence of life and the universe.

In Vedic Sanatan Sanskrit, Pitrikarma i.e. shraddha is usually performed twice, regular shraddha is performed on the tithi of death and another shraddha is performed during the period of Sorha shraddhas. May peace and happiness prevail in every family with the commencement of this year's Sorha Shraddha Wishing for the salvation of the Pitri who passed away on the Sasthi Shraddha date.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
