Parties raise clamour for Udaya's release from Indian custody
The political parties here have issued a joint appeal for the release of Nepali youth arrested by the Indian police who reached India for his mother's medical treatment.
The parties on Thursday issued a statement demanding the immediate release of 27 – year – old Udaya Hang Fago of Suryadaya Municipality – 10 citing his innocence. Indian police arrested Fago, who reached the Family Clinic at Siliguri, India for treatment of his mother, on Monday.
The Nepali youth was arrested on the ground that his face resembled that of a demonstrator, who took part in the Gorkhaland agitation at Sukuna Bazaar of Darjeeling on July 29.
The Suryadaya Municipality's nine political parties including Nepali Congress (NC), CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center) issued the joint statement. The Indian police extended his remand after an order from the court on Thursday, according to Fago's family members.
The parties have appealed to the Indian political parties, the civil societies, human rights activists and Indian police administration to release the youth insisting he has no connection with the Gorkhaland agitation and that he was at Fikkal Bazaar in Nepal during the day of demonstration cited by the Indian police.
Udaya's elder brother Sharan has said that his brother is a construction entrepreneur and has not links with the Gorkhaland agitation.
CPN-UML senior leader and former Prime Minister Jhalanath Khanal has also appealed to the Indian side for Udaya's release. 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.

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.
