  Hawkers Urged To Respect Pedestriansī Right To Walk Freely
    KATHMANDU, Sept 2 : As hawking of goods on the streets of the capital hampers the movements of pedestrians, stakeholders have urged street vendors not to push for their demand of allowing them to do business in areas with high pedestrian flow.

Speaking at an interaction program organized by the street vendors in the capital on Tuesday, Constituent Assembly (CA) member of CPN-UML, Binod Shrestha said that street vendors cannot hawk goods without violating the right of the pedestrians to walk freely.

  Experts Advise Chitwan Farmers Against Using Pesticides
    CHITWAN, Sep 2 : The government banned bananas grown in Chitwan from entering markets in the capital a few years ago. The reason was simple: the fruits harvested from various parts of the district contained high level of pesticides.

Experts say that the ban could extend to other vegetable products if the farmers continued relying on the heavy use of pesticides, with or without the knowledge of its side effects.

    SINDHUPALCHOWK, Sept 2: A man limped toward a makeshift camp set up by the Nepal Army (NA) to distribute relief packages to the victims of recent Sunkoshi landslide. The man, who identified himself as Mangal Tamang from Ramche VDC-5 of Sindhupalchowk district, held a card out of his shirt´s pocket and slung it over his neck, just before he entered into the camp.

It was the first evening of September and the sun was about to set in just half an hour. But, the camp was still teeming with people desperate to grab a few kilos of food grains, which NA personnel have been distributing to the landslide victims for almost a month now.

  Rihana's Condition Worrisome
    KATHMANDU, September 2: The anti-decubitus mattress appeared like a touch of luxury in the room but it was not enough to alleviate her agony. Rihana Sheikh Dhapali seemed tired of fighting the incessant pain that she has been enduring for the last six months.

Her ultra-skinny body lying flat on the hospital bed shows no sign of relief. The five months of continuous medical treatment hasn´t worked any magic and Rihana is still hoping for some miracle.
