NARAHARI SAPKOTA
MUNGLIN, July 21 : Kishore Jung Thapa travels regularly between Kathmandu and Munglin. Before setting off for the journey, Thapa, president of a Consumers´ Welfare Forum, ensures at least one thing: that he has eaten a full meal right at home.

Whenever he fails to do that, he prefers to travel empty stomach instead of eating at the hotels along the highway. [More]

  On a read to travel  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
It’s often said that those who love to read are some of the greatest armchair travelers. Books take us on voyages across the seas, fly us in the thin air, get us geared up for fun road trips and guide us through the toughest of mountain trails. All we need to do is open a book and our adventures are sure to begin, surpassing the irrelevant boundaries of time and space.

The Week brings to you a few books that can be your greatest companions, not just during a long flight or a boring bus ride but also when you’re lounging around chilling at home on your living room couch.

  • 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]
