  The timeless singer  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
Ram Krishna Dhakal, one of Nepal’s most famous singers, celebrated New Year’s Eve at the Hotel Yak & Yeti in Durbar Marg with his first solo performance in fifteen years, singing his hit songs like ‘Manparaune Hajar’ and ‘Bihana Uthne Bittikai.’

The 500-seat hall where the event was being organized was fully packed despite the exorbitant event fee of Rs. 5,000 per person. It was a clear strong testament to how fans of Ram Krishna Dhakal still idolized him for his talents as a singer as well as an actor.

    KATHMANDU, April 17
    : The Nepali private sector’s long wait to go around the globe to invest looks likely to be ending soon.
    Divergent views amongst the professional and private sector bodies have helped put a proposed Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy that also has provisions for ‘outward investment by Nepalis’ on ice for about a year.

    However, with a change in leadership at the private sector’s apex umbrella organization -- the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) -- led by its newly elected president Pradeep Jung Pandey, the policy has received a shot in the arm as Pandey has clearly articulated that he favors the policy. “The policy allows Nepalis to show their expertise abroad in their respective sectors and can also bring better payoffs.”   [More]
