Rape is punishable by law, but again, there are many formalities to be fulfilled.

She never wore clothes that bared her midriff or showed off her cleavage. Her skirts never revealed her thighs and her glances spoke of innocence rather than seduction. Yet she was raped, again and again. And it was not some stranger who did it to her in the dead of the night. It was her own father who sexually abused her for two years under their own roof. Eight years old Sunita* recalls those long years of torture with vacant eyes when she was forced to stay home all day with her alcoholic father since her mother did not earn enough to send her to school.

“This is the first time I attended school. I want to take this opportunity to study well,” says Sunita who is currently living in Maiti Nepal’s shelter. Her father is in custody and her mother works as a laborer.

  • 5 things about Dayahang Rai
    REPUBLICA
    KATHMANDU, July 21: After immortalizing the character of ‘Gople’ from the 2012 super hit ‘Loot’ and having many successful films like ‘Kabaddi’, ‘Jhole’ and ‘Dashdhunga’ to his credit, Dayahang Rai is one of the most sought-after actors of this generation. The first choice of many filmmakers and Nepali audiences’ absolute favorite, here he unveils five things most people don’t know about him:

    He doesn’t understand 60% of phone conversations

    Dayahang has serious problems with telephone conversations. Whenever someone calls him, he is distracted with other things happening around him and easily loses his concentration. As a result, he doesn’t get most of the things the person on the other end of the line is saying. “I have to be alone in a room to have a good communication over the phone. Otherwise I try and end the conversation in less than a minute,” he shares.   [More]
