The temperature in spring is not too cold and not too hot, spring season is also windy season. Summer season is the hottest season at all, the flowers fall down and fruits grown in trees. For agriculture summer season is the best season to grow crop. At rainy season, extensive rainy days are observed. The rain provides irrigation to agricultural crops and recharge ground water.

नव बर्ष २०७५ को हार्दिक मंगलमय शुभकामना!!
International Women’s Day rejoices the successes of women across the world.
But distant from singling out women the day concentrations on unity, equality and encouragement; chiefly in a world where the differences and inequalities between women and men are as great as ever.
It is an occasion to celebrate the progress made towards accomplishing gender equality and women’s empowerment but also to unfavorably replicate on those happenings and strive for a greater momentum towards gender equality worldwide. It is a day to recognize the extraordinary acts of women and to stand together, as a united force, to advance gender equality around the world.
It has been observed since the early 1900’s – a time of great growth and instability in the industrialized world that saw thriving population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is exclusively responsible for International Women’s Day. Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.
UNESCO has been working in all of its areas to endorse gender equality and women’s rights and authorization. Gender Equality has been one of two Worldwide Priorities of the organization since 2008. Global Priority Gender Equality is applied through result-oriented actions both within the Secretariat and in Member States with a wide range of partners.
Support women and encourage them!!
