Status of passport applications to be available online

REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, Aug 19: As part of its measures to ease the supply of Machine Readable Passports (MRPs), the Department of Passports (DoP) has come up with a new initiative that will enable passport applicants to check the status of their application online.

Once this online system comes into operation, anyone applying for the MRP can check the status of applications, according to DoP. This will help avoid unnecessary hassles applicants face to check whether their passport application has been already processed. [More]

  BOOK CHAT The quest for poetic element  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
I appreciate soulful, spiritual poems which are like an introvert humming to himself.

A doctor by profession, Niraj Bhattarai is the author of three books: two collections of ghazal and one of poetry. Other genres like fiction and narratives do not interest him, though this multitalented person has written stories, composed music, and played cricket at some time. The Week’s Sewa Bhattarai met with him to discuss the elusive poetic element.

How did you start writing poetry?


I come from a poetic family; my father is also a poet. Later when I went to Nepal Medical College, I found likeminded people. Young poets like Rawat worked in the school’s library, while poet Biyogi Budhathoki worked in the administration. The students and staff together formed an informal poetry society. Many of us continue to write today.

    SUPRASANNA ARYAL
    Preparation centers are convenient, but self-preparation is good enough, too

    KATHMANDU, Aug 18: Prabhash Rai, 20, who’s currently studying English Literature at University of Cambridge in the UK, reminisces that he took his IELTS (International English Language Testing System) four years ago. Since he wasn’t much aware of the institutes that offered preparation classes for the test during that time, he prepared on his own. “I had some books and a CD as the only materials to go through,” he recalls. Preparing for the test on his own helped him get a good score, he believes.

    At present, there are a lot of institutes and preparation centers providing classes for the tests in Kathmandu. Sajina Bhandari, 24, felt that it would be easier if she joined one of these institutes for her GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) preparation. She’s completed her Bachelor’s degree and aspires to go to the US for further studies.   [More]
