  Pokharel's comeback  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
Gurukul, despite its significant contributions to creating an environment for staging plays regularly in Kathmandu, was not the only theatrical platform for Sunil Pokharel. It was a place of worship for the theatre genius, no less. The rented place, unfortunately, had to undergo demolition. It was a story of three years ago. Pokharel almost remained silent and idle for these three years.

Gurukul is yet to establish its own theatre premises and stage but Pokharel has made his directorial comeback last week. He has been staging a play called ‘Rashomon,’ written by Japanese writer Ryunosuke Akutagawa, at Mandala Theatre. On the same story, the famous Japanese director Akira Kurosawa made a film decades ago.

    KATHMANDU, April 18: Pavitra Gautam is a symbol of enthusiastic youths of today who work hard and always have their eye on what’s next to come. The 26-year-old CEO of Karkhana, an innovative space for learners, has been part of the company in its journey as a product designer and more recently as an educator. The organization’s repertoire of work includes building a laptop, introducing 3D printer in Nepal and encouraging young engineers to go that extra mile.

    Now focused on education, Karkhana provides lessons to school going children of classes seven and eight. “We thought we could provide an added value in the education system. We chose these classes because the students are just developing their critical thinking, creative and collaborative skills. They’re learning how to communicate. With the right environment and motivation, young minds will develop many skills,” he explains.   [More]
