Incumbent government as disgraced as Lokman: Oli
CPN (UML) Chairman and former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli today termed the incumbent government as bearing resemblance to sacked Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) Chief, Lokman Singh Karki.
He said the formation of the government under an unholy alliance between Maoist Center and Congress was wrong due to which the citizens were facing problems.
Speaking at a press meet organized by Press Chautari, Jhapa, Oli claimed that the government will not be able to work in the interest of the country.
Stating that the government should first hold elections before implementing the constitution, he claimed of a serious conspiracy being hatched to push the country into confrontation.
The UML Chief was of the opinion that the amendment bill was being introduced against the interest of the country and people, and in the interest of Madhesi leaders.
Oli noted that former King Gyanendra Shah's statement on Tuesday was made in the capacity of the country's citizen rather than from a royal status. RSS

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

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. It was the cruellest irony that no sooner did we reach Panchkhal and sat at the Pipal Chautari to rest, than the bus we had left behind, arrived with people in the bus bursting with laughter on seeing us.
Prospects for Nepali talents in the Diaspora
When Indu, a Nepali American teen studying in Virginia, asked Panta whether she could inspire Nepali youngsters into music industry and convince their parents to consider Nepali music as a path to professionalism, the female heartthrob of Nepali music could not fully convince her.
Traffic Police in Kathmandu
As busy and hassling as the traffic system in Kathmandu is, the Traffic Police here have to handle an equally strenuous job. Over 1,400 traffic officers in and around the Kathmandu Valley battle against the pestering traffic and air pollution each day.
Menstrual taboo outdated
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.
