Congress leader Mahat to join cabinet
Nepali Congress leader Ram Sharan Mahat is taking the oath of office as a minister without portfolio in the swearing-in ceremony being held Tuesday afternoon at Shital Niwas.
According to Congress sources, the newly elected Prime Minister Sushil Koirala also wanted the party leader Prakash Man Singh to take the oath as a minister without portfolio.
But Singh insisted that he be sworn in as deputy prime minister.
"As we are yet to settle the power sharing issue with UML, Koirala asked him to join the cabinet later," said the source.
Mahat will be the only minister from the Congress to take the oath in the swearing-in ceremony at Shital Niwas.
UML is also not sending its ministers to take the oath after Koirala rejected to give the home ministry to the party.
President Ram Baran Yadav will administer oath to the newly elected Prime Minister Koirala and Mahat.

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.

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
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.
