Over 600 Nepali migrant workers still stranded in Malaysia

SHREEJANA SHRESTHA
KATHMANDU, July 23: More than 600 Nepali migrants are still languishing in detention centers, jails or staying illegally in Malaysia due to inadequate budget and lack of proper coordination between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) and the Ministry of Labor and Employment (MoLE) for their rescue.

The MoLE said that they haven´t been able to rescue the stranded Nepalis in lack of adequate fund to sponsor their return tickets. In the meantime, the MoLE is reluctant to allocate additional money for their rescue as the MoFE hasn´t yet provided any details of the fund allocated earlier. [More]

  Dreamlike Dolpa  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
Traveling to Dolpa is not for the fainthearted. It involves spending days away from civilization, and walking your way to every next destination. But the heavenly views make up for it. In Dolpa, you can find beauty in barrenness like nowhere else. Mountain after mountain rise around you bereft of any vegetation but grand in their sculpted beauty of grey and gold. Their beauty is surpassed only by the occasional valleys where people took advantage of river-fed fertile lands to create settlements. The contrasts of yellow mustard and pink buckwheat to those barren grey hills are beyond what any artist can imagine.

Isolated from the world, these lands are home to ancient Bon Po cultures that predate Buddhism but mixed with Buddhism later on to create a unique permutation. People still commute and trade on yaks, horses and mules, and wear ethnic dresses and ornaments.

  • Conflict delays preparation for Asian Games
    SANJEEV KUMAR SHAH
    KATHMANDU, July 23: The dispute between the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) and National Sports Council (NSC) is likely to delay the closed camp for the 17th Asian Games as the two sports bodies have separate plans to start the closed camp. Differences between MoYS and NSC, especially between the Minister for Youth and Sports Purushottam Paudel and NSC Member Secretary Yuvraj Lama has also made Nepal´s participation in Asian Games uncertain. Paudel belong to CPN-UML and Lama is close to UCPN (Maoist) and was nominated at NSC by Jhala Nath Khanal led collation government in June 2011.

    Lama was sacked by Minister Paudel on May 16 but was re-instated few days later by Supreme Court. The conflict between two key office bearers of Nepal sports fraternity has kept players and officials in dilemma.   [More]
