"Killing" the word in itself is scary! When you feel like writing a message telling not to kill somebody is one of the saddest thing to do.
Yes, it can only happen in Nepal!
The message written on the back of a truck read:
Journalists are the eye openers! They shouldn’t be killed!
Poor Nepali journalists !
I rather prefer love messages better, for a truck literature.

“Well, well, well… I emailed several times to the technical department aka webmaster about the security flaw. But enough is enough. Maybe this will catch his freaking attention.

Just because I have a chance, I would like to dedicate this intrustion to my lovely darling – A.T. aka g0ld. Enjoy fixing the hole before someone else does more damage. Good luck.
Update: The Himalayan times website has been resumed on June 30.

US investors, who are on Nepal Visit, have found Nepal as an investment destination with tremendous business opportunities. A delegation from the American Chamber of Commerce in India (ACCI) arrived in Kathmandu on June 27 for a three-day visit to get assurance from Nepali political parties on the security of US investment in Nepal. ACCI is an umbrella organization of over 500 US investors based in India.
Delegations are from nine U.S. companies. The delegation met Prime Minister Jhalanath Khanal, senior ministers, top leaders of major political parties, including UCPN (Maoist), and high ranking government officials on June 28.
Aniruddha Lahiri, vice president of (ACCI), who is leading this delegation, told the press after meeting, “We found all political parties serious about attracting foreign investment for economic development. We are very much encouraged to hear their united voice on making Nepal a prosperous nation and positive commitments toward protecting foreign investment”.
Lahiri further added that they would convey their impression about Nepal as a potential investment destination to other US investors in India and the US. The business mission has identified hydropower, health, information technology, trade, aviation, infrastructure and agriculture as the major sectors for investment in Nepal. Business opportunities should be exploited to boost foreign investment so as to develop trade of Nepal
But Lahiri has also pointed out labor issues and weak infrastructures as big challenges and challenges from ongoing political transition in the country. Lahiri and US ambassador to Nepal Scott H DeLisi also commented on obstruction faced by GMR — the developer of Upper Karnali Hydropower Project and said it shows unfavourable investment environment in Nepal.
Further, DeLisi added that as the government has taken an important step by making decision to provide security to hydropower projects, it will establish investment-friendly environment in the country.
Lahiri mentioned the need of implementation of commitments rather than assurance only.
Don’t let the "Indian Terrain" fool you, it’s not India. It is the photo by the side of the road in capital while going from Kamaladi to Putalisadak.
If you think footpaths are for pedestrian, think again! Here is another example to prove the footpath are made wheelpath in Nepal. The white car is blissfully parked on the footpath!
