the galaxy of stars,
I struggle to exist,
Beholding my dreams and ideas,
And tracing a voyage with my aspirations,
I struggle for my identity,
I struggle for my identity..:"

websites has already created its identity
all over the world amongst myriad
websites related to the common business.
No wonder, Dhukuti.com is a shining
star, presently, dispersing its glowing
luminosity in the world of internet.
It is astonishing
that the website company is merchandising
the Nepali products all over the world
staying miles away from the boarders
of Nepal. The office is situated in

have one non- Nepali customer in Europe.
He is very fond of Nepali pop songs.
Although he loves other Nepali artists
too, he is a huge fan of Nabin Bhattarai.
A regular customer of our company,
he purchases all the new albums. He
is not a Nepali literate nor does
he understand Nepali. However, he
is an admirer of Nepali pop music.
In the earlier days with him, we were
surprised when he demanded the song
titles to be written in English for
the reason that he was unable to read
the songs on the CD cover.
Another incident that
I would like to share with Nepal net
is of those days when we had just
launched our website. After about
a month, one day, we received a call
from World Disney Animal Kingdom.
They desired to buy some stuffs from
our store. At that time, we had just
given birth to our website, which
was struggling for its identity and
establishment. We were so happy to
receive the phone call. Even today,
we regard ourselves very fortunate
to supply the Nepali handicrafts to
such a renowned company.
the general items, what are the innovative
systems and services
that your website offers?
have recently launched two new services,
Money to Nepal and Movie on demand.
The Movie on Demand is for those people
who insist for cheap services. Our
service is mostly offered to people
who do not have a DVD player and to
those who do not wish to spend a bulk
of money for one movie. The service
is available in all over the world.
We are still on pilot phase on this
service. We have noticed a great deal
of customer's interest in these services,
so we will be increasing these services
Another service that
we have added but have not marketed
well is the online payment gateway
service for other retailers. If an
individual is interested to open an
online store, we will provide them
with online payment solution with
reasonable price. This service is
also in a pilot phase. So far, it
is doing well and has experienced
a lot of small business interests,
here in US. Therefore, we are planning
to expand this service in Nepal as
well. Also, if any Nepalese is willing
to open an online store, we will set
them up and provide them with all
necessary help and guidance.
Q. Lastly, what
do you wish to convey through Nepalnet.Net?
Our motto is to supply
the Nepali products and services to
the Nepalese by the Nepalese staying
under one roof. We hope to fulfill
the expectations of people as well
as reach the heights of success.
has no boundaries. Perhaps, this is
also the prior reason that internet
is ruling the hearts of many people
through out the world. Dhukuti.com
is a website, which promises and assures
to demonstrate Nepal through different
Nepali items all over the world. The
endeavor of paying tribute to Nepal
while living oceans far from Nepal
is highly appreciated. As an old Nepali
adage says, "Chhati ma Nepali
