She posed into my selfie voluntarily while I was fixing my mobile for a selfie with my kids in my locality. She posed since she amazed that she could view herself into mobile, expressed in local language – Newari. She was unknown of front camera of mobile. She is one of Aunties of my locality.
Her one sentence put me into thoughtful situation what actually I am doing for community, especially for my local community. Nothing was my answer.
She was still using same cell phone with text dominating system but color phone which was gifted, second handed, six years ago by his son when he got new one. She showed me the phone and said it was the same phone when we met six years ago. She was using phone only to receive phone calls however she has started dialing from immediate, six years ago, I shared to operate properly. I told my number and she dialed again. Incoming call displaying name of “Dil Kumari Chhetry” on my phone was evidence of media richness using smart technology, for example – smart phone, cloud and the Internet – that I am using. However, she had also my number but it was saved as different name which is unknown to her since she can’t still recognize English script. This is a story of woman – Dil Kumary Chhetry – from Ghandruk which is one of accessible remote areas of Nepal and in line of Annapurna trail circuit. I revisited her in her house with my family in March 2017. I met her six years ago in December 2011 when I was in academic research of e-Government project work for Kathmandu University.

There is no doubt of innovation for foster development and resilience infrastructure development in a nation. No area is immune from effects of innovative technology with rapid growing and rendering social calendar of people around the world. Nobody wants to stop the technology and feel incomplete without technology even in group or alone, especially if to show off.

It would be innovative and sustainable if a hunger, from war zone and crisis, could afford the technology rather than a matter of show off. Development actors, donors, national and international community and no other than scholar and academicians should enter into a dialogue to bridge technology and livelihood of people in a way that a hunger would have no feelings of hungry next morning rather than as a burden or expensive item just for show off.
Digital technology is though low cost media for expedition of information management, sharing in e-gov like in Nepal, political movement like in presidential election in US 2008, but I am fail to see low social cost in digital age. Social costs are of native relations, carefree life, humanity, and human sovereignty. It is not matter of only using technology, but implement those items and inventions with very carefully within core mission of happiness of life.

Though there are relatively improvement in terms of ICT and priority set by government and corporation in Okhaldhunga; low literacy and lack of ICT policies and political agenda are in front to block ICT penetration of the ICT among people.
