Review of बोता मो:मो (Bota Mo:Mo)

बोता (Bota) is a newari word for a small bowl made from leaf, sounds instantly cool when associated with Mo:Mo. With so many types of Mo:Mo already around ,  बोता मो:मो was bound to make its mark for uniqueness.

Two weeks ago, i saw advertisement of this mo:mo which did sound interesting. But what caught my attention was sadheko mo:mo (साँढेको मो:मो ), from that moment my expectations increased exponentially. My taste buds wanted that fresh and unique dish to feel the rush.

So, on the opening day May 20, 2016 I was  all excited for Bota Mo:Mo, but little did they know about social presence or effective marketing or even correct contact details. All my expectations came to absolute zero. Sure they had their front end answers like , “bro, we were like really swamped” , ” massive customer flow” , “here there this that”.  On top of that their only contact details present was facebook map directions , which showed out of ring road(near sama khusi) , every one on facebook page too were asking for location or contact phone number, but thanks to their zero customer focus – most of us were let down.

Well I did go today for lunch @ bota mo:mo with colleagues, which i luckily saw while passing by at kumaripati. Well for those who are still searching for bota mo:mo (बोता मो:मो) directions, its at kumaripati – opposite road to sanima bank ltd -few blocks inside .

Pros:

  • introductory offer (1 plate mo:mo free with purchase of 10 plates)
  • new and different taste
  • free note copy to every mo:mo eater

 

Cons:

  • over priced (costly)
  • congested space
  • no AC / FAN
  • only 8-9 pieces of mo:mo
  • very small and less pickle
  • noisy place

This place did leave its mark in mo:mo times for sure, but this venture should take these Cons into consideration for effectiveness and customer satisfaction.

You my loved one
The magic you spell
When you kissed me
and When you pressed me
to your heart
Every word turns into love song.

Give your hand to me
we walk together
forever as it may be
and when i close my eyes
eternity seems less to me.

Love is the feeling,
it is you and me,
watch me navigate stars
and when you smile
Every word turns into love song.
The seventh heaven
is just below me.

SFD2015 featured image

On 19th September 2015 with the theme of “Software Freedom to promote Entrepreneurship”, Software Freedom Day 2015 was celebrated at Nepal Engineering Association, Harihar Bahwan, in Lalitpur, Nepal.

Venue Map

Participants from different college and institutions, presenters and ITGuru’s showed their support toward freedom of Software. With new team taking responsibility of the event, there were few glitches with venue and event information flow but as they say ” all well, ends well”. By the second last event of table talk , all were pretttty impressed with the event , including me.

 

SFD2015 event schedule

Different stalls from previous SFD’s and community stalls from different open communities kept the SFD charm glowing. A pool of open source enthusiast, presenters and media consultants made the environment like tech buddies getTogether. The neutral approach of openness from presenters was great like, “Linux is not an alternative”.

The Last event at Round Table Discussion was the most interesting part of the event for me. 60% if the visitors stayed and discussion started following the introduction. Students from Kathmandu University Open Source Community (KUOSC), Acme Open Source Community (AOSC), Open Source Ascol Community (OSAC), Gandaki Engineering College, Kantipur City College, Living With ICT, Wikipedia Nepal, Mozilla Nepal, Local Development Committee and FOSS sat at the discussion table.

Key suggestion areas were:

  • less information flow about the SFD 2015 event
  • involvement of FOSS and other open source community representatives outside valley.
  • revive/reboot of FOSS Ka Kura
  • follow up team at Local government body across country
  • why open source software not included in school and college level curriculum
  • social media Vs google groups

Lastly, Congratulations to the Organizing team and volunteers for doing such a wonderful and responsible event.

Nepali CS group scenario

Nepali Counter Strike scene started in 2004 AD with small tournaments scale. The first competition was organized in Maharjgunj, Kathmandu, Nepal by virtual world,it was first 5v5 tournament with 25k cash prizes, good team participation were there. After that not much competitions were organized, only cybercafe tournaments and home gamers, but still game popularity was going through ups and downs.

From 2008 cs scene started, but again when myktm server started in 2010 , then dying CS community revived, and kept on growing, people from dharan, illam , chitwan and other places started playing in that server.

When CS 1.6 ended internationally, Nepal also was affected, old clan started quitting, due to lack of platform in gaming in Nepal. Young generation switched from 1.6 to GO. At initial phase they still needed some time to get used to, old generation (pro’s)went  pursuing their careers and higher studies.

mYktm

Myktm started from IRC in early 2000 which was inactive for some time , but a man saw vision in reviving CS community in Nepal, he was Gaulochan Bikram Shah. He made his own server and started, this vision kept growing and requested for server space in his workplace WorldLink. Server started, members started joining, young gamers came in, community became strong , and started organizing tournaments. Before there used to be  only few teams , but since 2012 , the teams increased and more than 20 teams started playing CS 1.6 .

After server created, new players and team came in, few of the old clan’s were also surviving , new breed of player with new philosophy and thinking started. But still old clan had dominated the scene to newbies but later everything worked out . Some players feels CS a lot alike football , where strategies, skills count,shooting, passing. More mental than physical though.But same practice hours needed like football.
Them myktm started hosting different kinds of tournaments, sponsors started joining hands, tournaments started in malls and cybercafe

Now CS GO moments are coming in , and teams are focused in Counter Strike Global Offensive.

Solaborate, what’s next ?

In one of the Facebook groups, I saw some random post about solaborate being the new exciting thing and blah, blah. Did some googling and binging, and found out that it is a professional social network and collaboration platform dedicated to technology professionals & companies. Well, it did draw my attention and I signed up to explore more. It’s free to signup.

It has just launched its beta version, and promises to provide technology professionals a central place with the right tools and services to collaborate in real time both internally and externally – and solve business problems. It provides tools to collaborate, communicate and expand the ecosystem of tech minds. There are many social networking sites, tech discussion websites, forums but all of them are scattered. Solaborate brings the collaborative blatform for all users need at one place. I guess thats how its name came, social + collaborate = solaboarte.
