CA likely to miss Sept 6 deadline

Thorniest issues yet to be resolved

KATHMANDU, Aug 29 : As the deadline given for the Constitutional Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee (CPDCC) of the Constituent Assembly (CA) to settle all disputed issues in the contents of new constitution is expiring on September 6, it has become almost certain that the committee is missing the crucial timeline of the statute drafting.

Settling all the disputes in the next one week seems practically unattainable as key leaders from major political parties have still not focused their negotiations on major thorny issues mainly related to state restructuring and the system of governance. [More]

Using social networking sites is no more limited to the sole purpose of entertainment. It has also become a platform where friends, family members, distant relatives, colleagues and strangers from all over the world have come together to support a cause that they believe in.

The Week asked a few people what they think about the use of different social networking sites for various campaigns, and how fruitful the trend can be in the long run.

ICJ to govt: Provide justice to victims of disappearances
KATHMANDU, Aug 29: International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) has renewed its call on the Nepali authorities to provide justice to hundreds of victims of enforced disappearances during the decade-long armed conflict in Nepal.

Issuing a statement on the eve of the annual International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, the ICJ alleged that members of both the state security forces and the Maoist insurgents engaged in widespread human rights abuses, many of which constitute crimes under international law. “It has been eight years since the end of the armed conflict, but even now the fate and whereabouts of more than a thousand possible victims of enforced disappearance are unknown and perpetrators have still not been brought to justice,” the statement quoted ICJ’s Regional Director for Asia and the Pacific Sam Zarifi as saying.   [More]

  • Gopalaya: All set for the celebration of the music maestro's music
    KATHMANDU, Aug 29: On Friday, the auditorium of Army Officer’s Club, Sundhara was quite a busy place. One of the legends of Nepali music industry, Gopal Yonjan’s music is all set to be celebrated on Saturday at the same place and the whole team of ‘Gopalaya’ was seen in rush with stage rehearsals and last day preparations. ‘Gopalaya—Something old Something new’, a concert which will feature well known names like Uday Sotang, Reema Gurung Hoda, Prasna Shakya and some of the new generation singers like Rohit John Chettri, Shreya Sotang and Banika Pradhan, is a grand tribute to the music maestro.

    “The main objective to organize this concert is to connect the young generation with Gopal Yonjan’s music. We want the younger generation to feel the depth of his voice, lyrics and compositions,” says Shrijana Singh Yonjan, the daughter of the maestro. She added that even after 17 years of his demise, his music is equally loved by music lovers. “His music had symbolisms. He was equally good with every kind of song—romantic, patriotic, philosophical, you name it,” she says. Shrijana hints that the first vocal performance of the musical evening will be coming in as a big surprise to all the audiences.   [More]
