  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
Have you ever had that moment of discovery when you realize that a character in a book is just like you? She seems to feel exactly like you feel, and responds exactly as you would to a situation. When the book is over, you still carry her with you, and when you are in complicated situations, you find yourself thinking what she would do.

The Week brings you a list of iconic female characters that many of us have identified with at some point or another.

    Youths talk about punctuality

    KATHMANDU, July 25: It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Nepal is a country where very few people understand the true value of time. We hardly reach anywhere on time, and we have ample excuses to our rescue—‘I couldn’t catch a bus in time,’ ‘There was a terrible traffic jam,’ ‘I couldn’t iron my dress in time due to load shedding,’ etc. In fact, we’ve excused ourselves so often that our habitual tardiness has become a tradition—the tradition of ‘Nepali time’ in which one can expect someone to be at least half an hour late.

    And while we know that this so-called tradition needs to be given up right now, it’s so deeply rooted in our society that it needs some time to get over it. In this edition of chitchat, we sat down with five youths to know about their perception of punctuality, their experiences with tardiness, and their views on what we can actually do to get rid of Nepali time.   [More]
