  The Uninvited  
  BY RICHA BHATTARAI  
 
In the feeble moonlight I see that the red of the dreams is now on my fingers.

Fifteen years of the same thing happening month after month. I should be better prepared for it by now, and yet it delights in surprising me whenever it can. Possibly every month, if it had its way. The thing that is called a ‘period,’ and it tries hard to insert a comma into life.

Imagine this. The whole day I have been irritable and tetchy. I want to eat three croissants and a packetful of mushy titaura and then a jumbo pack of chips. My stomach is about to burst, and I still feel hungry. I have gotten into an argument with my best friend and snapped twice at a colleague about inconsequential matters. I feel sad and nervous and edgy, like something bad is about to happen. Finally, I give up trying to work or think or even read and crawl underneath my blankets. A beautiful dream awaits me, of lush green pasturelands and bright blue skies. There is even a rivulet with an arched bridge – how romantic! And suddenly, the rivulet turns red. It flows not in my dream but between my legs. My eyelids turn into lead. They refuse to look, the logic is that the river will dry up if I just turn over and go back to sleep.

 
NC, UML mull HLPC sans RPP-N, Madhes-based parties
REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, Aug 28: While demonstrating their flexibility to form a High Level Political Committee (HLPC) as demanded by the UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN-UML have maintained that the HLPC should have only three major political parties represented in the Constituent Assembly (CA).

The two parties have said formation of the HLPC with participation of the NC, the UML and the UCPN (Maoist) would help meet the objective of the committee to help conclude the remaining tasks of the peace process. “Since a separate commission to address the concerns of Madhes is in the process of being formed, we believe it would be better to form the Committee comprising of the three major parties to help conclude remaining tasks of the peace process,” argued Minister for Information and Communication Dr Minendra Rijal.   [More]
