Nepal Drugs Limited to produce cetamol from mid-September
Nepal Drugs Limited is all set to produce paracetamol from mid September this year.
NDL, which started producing medicines with the manufacture of oral rehydration salt from April, is producing cetamol in the second phase.
A meeting of the Council of Ministers on August 18, 2016 decided to revive the government-run NDL after eight years since its closure.
The pharmaceutical company was closed after the World Health Organization, seven years back, made the Good Manufacturing Practice mandatory.
The government had decided to provide Rs 146.5 million loan for re-operating the NLD as per GMP.
NLD general manager Robus Kusum Subedi said the company has started preparations for starting the production from mid-September itself. He added that works are being carried out to produce tablets of non-penincilin group medicine within three months of operation. RSS

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.
Air pollution control measures for Kathmandu Valley
According to the World Air Quality Index website, Air quality index of Ratnapark, Kathmandu was 158 on April 22 which is unhealthy. This means children and people with respiratory diseases should avoid outdoor exertion at this pollution level. If this quantity increases to more than 300, air quality level is considered as hazardous which means everyone should avoid outdoor exertion.
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.

Menstrual taboo outdated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.
