Country ill-prepared to tackle fire outbreaks

REPUBLICA
Fire claims at least 43 lives, destroys property worth Rs 350 million

KATHMANDU, April 13 :
A few days ago, villagers of Jamuni Madhepura were roused from their sleep by screams around 1:30 am. By the time the residents found out the cause for the commotion, a fire that had broken out from the house of Muhammad Salamat had already engulfed a few more houses in the neighborhood in this remote village of Saptari district.

While none of the families could salvage their belongings, the fire also claimed the life of a minor named Rukshar Khatun. The fire gutted properties worth around Rs 10 million as the fire engines from Rajbiraj and Lahan Municipalities arrived too late to prevent the losses. [More]

  THE FEMALE FACTOR Civil Service: Women's zero presence in Special Class  
  BY TARA WAGLEY  
 
The debate is going on for a long time on enhancing participation of women at policy making level. But the presence of women at the policy level of civil service known as the permanent government of the state is disappointing. It is difficult to place there even one percent of women through reservation, not to mention ensuring 50% representation. The number of women, who are given responsibility despite being at the special level, is negligible. It is men who occupy 100 percent positions in the Special Class category of the civil service.

Before the principle of inclusion was introduced in the civil service, male employees numbered 70,368 which formed 88.91% of the available positions while the number of women employees at 8,774 formed 11.09% of the available positions. This makes it clear that the presence of women at the policy level in the civil service is negligible. After enforcement of reservation for women by the second amendment, 2064, of the Civil Service Act, 2049 BS, the number of women in civil service reached 10,773 (13.84%) during the next four or five years.
