SAARC's time to rise

Although the road to success will always be full of challenges, SAARC can come out of the slumber and start afresh. What is really needed is a strong impetus and desire to implement the goals that have been set and move forward with a grand vision. Let us hope that the 18th summit in Kathmandu shall usher a new era in the history of SAARC. MORE

  • Federating Nepal right Federating Nepal right

    Provinces should be delineated vertically along north-south lines. It would be best if we retained the current five development regions. This model has taken into consideration interdependence of Tarai, the Hills and Himalaya. The problem with Panchayat regime was it created these regions with promises of devolution of powers, but never enacted their promises. With judicious decentralization and devolution of powers, these five regions would've served much like federal provinces today.

  • Some tips from Hospitality graduate Some tips from Hospitality graduate

    In college years, manager is a big word for hospitality students; later it becomes heavier. For the first few times, they feel immense pleasure to sign above ‘Manager’s Signature’, but gradually this task becomes heavier because of consequences a signature can brings. They just don’t want to sign anymore. From my experience, there are certain factors in hotels and restaurants which could make the first work experience sophisticated, and therefore pose equal chances of growth or discouragement.
