UCPN (Maoist) underscores political-level dealing in Nepal-India relation

ASHOK DAHAL
KATHMANDU, July 26:Stating that hitherto existing trend of non-political level dealing helped little in bridging a yawning trust deficit between Nepal and India, UCPN(Maoist) underscored the need for political-level dialogue for the relation between the two immediate neighbors to start anew.

While meeting with the visiting Indian External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, the leaders of the main opposition party claimed that maintaining relation through the non-political agencies has benefited none of the neighbor so far. [More]

  REVIEW A treasure chest of eleven gems  
  BY NITYA PANDEY  
 
There are a few books that are like your childhood mates. You spend the most memorable of moments with them. Then slowly, with time and age, you fall apart. And one fine evening, while you are busy dusting your bookshelf, you stumble onto them. You flip through the pages and read a few titles. And just like that, within a snap of your fingers, you reconnect.

‘Naso’ is one such book that remains unscathed by the blows of time. It is equally alluring to all generations of readers, regardless of whether you are a first timer or a repeater. This collection of eleven short stories by Guru Prasad Mainali tugs at your heart and touches your soul with its originality, honesty and simplicity. These pages bring to life Nepal’s historical past with its bittersweet moments of joys and sorrows.

    Youths talk about punctuality

    KATHMANDU, July 25: It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Nepal is a country where very few people understand the true value of time. We hardly reach anywhere on time, and we have ample excuses to our rescue—‘I couldn’t catch a bus in time,’ ‘There was a terrible traffic jam,’ ‘I couldn’t iron my dress in time due to load shedding,’ etc. In fact, we’ve excused ourselves so often that our habitual tardiness has become a tradition—the tradition of ‘Nepali time’ in which one can expect someone to be at least half an hour late.

    And while we know that this so-called tradition needs to be given up right now, it’s so deeply rooted in our society that it needs some time to get over it. In this edition of chitchat, we sat down with five youths to know about their perception of punctuality, their experiences with tardiness, and their views on what we can actually do to get rid of Nepali time.   [More]
