EC official website not updated
The poll results of at least 236 locals units are out by 11 am Friday. But the official website of Election Commission has only updated the results of 65 local units.
The chief returning officers deployed in various local levels have to send the poll results to district election offices. They release information only after sending the poll results to higher bodies. The district election offices have to send the information to the Election Commission. This means the poll results are first and officially received by the Election Commission. But the EC website has only shown 27 percent poll results.
The commission is also facing criticisms for sluggish vote counting.
EC secretary Gopinath Mainali has accepted that that the EC is delaying to release the poll results.
"We're facing problem due to lack of enumerators. And only the official results sent by the Commission itself are used for updating the official site." Mainali informed Setopati.
He further said that the commission is preparing to manage it properly for the second phase election.

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

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.
