Construction of bus park with state-of-the-art facilities underway in Biratnagar
Construction of an ultra-modern bus park is underway in Biratnagar. The existing bus park at ward no. 15 of Biratnagar sub-metropolitan city was demolished to construct a well-facility bus terminal.
“The construction of bus terminal has started with the loan assistance of Town Development Fund that amounts to Rs. 8, 47, 00, 700,” House Mapping branch engineer of Biratnagar sub-metropolitan city, Arjun Thapa told Setopati.
Gauri Parvati Nirman Sewa, Kathmandu is awarded the contract to build the bus terminal. The agreement that reached with the municipality mentions the contractor has to complete constructing the bus terminal within 15 months.
Thapa further said that the bus park will also have two-storey terminal building.
He said that the building is being constructed to manage ticket counter, shopping center, waiting room, restaurant and baggage rooms for passengers.
The bus park will have a garden and a space to park 55 vehicles.
The ground floor of the bus terminal will have outdoor and indoor space and will have 8 ticket counters. The bus park office will be constructed in the ground floor.
Thapa informed that restaurant, kitchen and baggage rooms will be constructed in the second floor of the terminal.
“We are preparing a draft on how to operate these rooms.”
Although the draft to build the bus park in Biratnagar was prepared six years ago, the project could not be materialized. However, the initiatives taken by Basket Font Project and local level too could not help to advance bus park building.
This time, the facility is being built with the joint effort of municipality and bus entrepreneurs under the Public-Private partnership (PPP) model.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.

The return trip
It took us over five hours, drenched in rain, walking through treacherous ratomato sluggishly. It should not have taken more than two hours in a normal day.

I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
