  Men who define us  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
The stories we read and tell have a large role in defining who we are, how we perceive the world around us, and how we react in different situations. Some characters in books seem to understand us better than real people, and there are some we like more than our friends. We see hints of these characters in people all around us; some even seem to have leapt directly from the pages of our favorite book. The Week lists some of these literary men who follow us around in waking hours.

The hero: Lancelot


Before there were gray characters, there were only the villain and the hero. Every boy wanted to be him, and every girl wanted to be with him. Heroes like Lancelot in the Arthur Chronicles were full of good qualities like wisdom, bravery, chivalry, honor, and not to forget, good looks. The first work of literature in English, Beowulf, is the story of one such hero who slays a monster. Heroes continue to manifest in modern literature, in popular figures like Superman and in bestsellers like the Harry Potter series. Among thousands of characters in Game of Thrones, many readers point to the character arc of Ned Stark who embodies the characteristics of the typical hero, as the most emotionally wrenching and memorable one.

  • NOC dispute takes new turn following SC ruling
    REPUBLICA
    KATHMANDU, July 31: While the dispute between National Sports Council (NSC) member secretary Yubraj Lama and Minister of Youths and Sports (MoYS) Purushottam Paudel eventually appear to have been resolved, a fresh dispute has emerged regarding the legitimacy of two separate Nepal Olympic Committees (NOCs).

    Sending its second letter to NSC, the verdict enforcement directorate of the Supreme Court (SC) has ordered the sports governing body to implement its decision. SC on July 2010 had given recognition to Rukma Sumsher Rana-led NOC. The other NOC was led by Dhruba Bahadur Pradhan and is recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). NOC-led by Pradhan has officially been entrusted with making preparations for participation in the Asian Games as well.   [More]
