KATHMANDU, July 30: The body of Buddhist Guru Shamar Rinpoche has been kept at the Syarvan Monastery at local Raniban for the members of the general public to pay their last respects to the 14th Rinpoche.

The Buddhist guru passed away after suffering a heart attack on June 11 in Germany. He was 62. The body of the Rinpoche, Bhutanese national, was brought to Kathmandu only on Tuesday. [More]

Time and again we hear of top leaders going abroad for medical treatment on state-funded expenses. Should there be a cutoff on how much the state spends on its sick leaders? The Week asked a few people for their take on the matter.


The budget for leaders´ treatments should definitely be limited. If they have to go abroad for health treatment, why can’t they go to Singapore or Bangkok where the health treatment is cheaper than, say, in the US or Europe?

Besides, the trend of leaders going abroad for health treatment points to the shoddy health system at home. Leaders should get their treatment in Nepal because that’s what the general public does. And for that, they will first of all need to improve the health system at home. This will also have the benefit of developing the health sector.
