'Dr KC should be transferred to ICU immediately'

"Because of fasting, his body has suffered a massive deficit of important chemicals essential for the functioning of the body. The parameters are apparently normal when measured in blood, but physicians call this 'false normal' because the blood levels have been maintained at the cost of intracellular loss." MORE

  • Dr KC and PM Koirala’s integrity Dr KC and PM Koirala’s integrity

    The selfless doctor, who inspires hope and optimism amidst all the chaos across the country, is on the fifth day of non-violent protest risking his life but Koirala, a protégé of Nepali Congress (NC) founded on Gandhian principles, is singularly acting like Gandhi’s three monkeys refusing to see, hear and speak about the issue.

  • Corporación Dinant is not driven by corporate greed

    Dinant is not in conflict with the genuine peasant associations of Honduras: Our African Palm plantations support thousands of sustainable jobs with company pensions and compensation levels well above the national minimum wage; they have also significantly contributed to improving skills, education and health. We recognize the value and importance of engaging peacefully and transparently with those that hold different viewpoints and believe that we can find some common points of mutual interest.

  • A letter to our Honorable Prime Minister
