That was the the status of model Niti Shah after being selected to compete in the Miss Nepal 2017 contest. This is not only a mere status – a challenge to all other contestants in the beauty contest. The pretty-face model, Niti Shah, had been preparing for this day for a long time. I know, other girls in the contest might have done the same, but Niti had made it public for a while ago.
I have prepared a video report about Niti’s participation in Miss Nepal contest:

Well known model Niti Shah was selected to participate in this year’s Miss Nepal in the audition held recently.

On the Nepali New Year program held in UAE, two hot models were the main attraction – Jyoti Magar and Riya Shrestha. Both Jyoti and Riya are known for scanty dress and vulgar dances. Although Jyoti Magar is a professional singer, she is better known as a vulgar dancer than a singer.
In the program, they keep up with their reputation and showed off the curves of their bodies. The body show was more effective than the artistic aspect of their performance.
Jyoti Magar was invited by Lil Fang Ghale Samaj, UAE in the progream titled Naya Barsha Sangitik Dhamaka 2074. Riya Shrestha was invited by Kabhre Samaj UAE. Because of the popularity of the singer/dancer, both the programs were houseful. Although these types of programs are houseful, the presence of guests in social work programs are very minimum.

At the time when the Indian President Pranab Mukharjee visited Nepal, five months ago, the Nepali superstar, Rajesh Hamal had written the following status:
“The head of the present Nepal government who ironically, once upon a time propagated the concept of ‘New Nepal’ has in course of time shaken the very foundation of being Nepali. The protocol amongst sovereign states should be on a reciprocal basis…”
The President of Nepal visited India on April 17, 2017. While Pranab Mukharjee was welcomed by the President, the Vice President, the Prime Minister, the Finance Minister and a lot of top level officials in Nepal, India’s reciprocal was really disappointing.
In the beginning there was nobody to welcome the president of Nepal at the airport. Nepali ambassador to India Deep Kumar Upadhaya welcomed the president when she got out of the airplane. The Indian government didn’t sent any high level officials but a deputy minister of the ministry unrelated to Nepal was sent to receive Bhandari. Krishna Raj, the deputy ministry of Women and Children Ministry, welcomed Bhandari.
A video report about the statement of Rajesh Hamal:
As the schedule date of local level election, May 14, nears, Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) has revealed some of the details of the candidate for the poll. One of the candidate of RPP is actress Rekha Thapa.
The party hasn’t entrusted Rekha to be the Mayor but a Deputy Mayor of Kathmandu Municipality. The Mayor candidate is Rajaram Shrestha. Rajaram was the ex-speaker of the party. Rekha was elected the Central Committee Member by the Party Convention held a while ago.
This is the first time the actress is competing in an election as a politician. Earlier she had taken the membership of CPN (Maoist). In the second Constitution Assembly Election, the party had selected her as the candidate of Parsa district. But, she had to denounce the candidacy because she had forgotten to register herself in the voter’s list.
This time – Are you willing to vote for Rekha Thapa? Continue reading
It seems like they are in a honeymoon (although not married yet). The most popular couple in the film industry these days Priyanka Karki and Ayushma Desraj Joshi Shrestha are being talked a lot. One of my friends spotted them in Pokhara. Yes, they were together with nobody accompanying them.
It seems like a fun time for them as any professional engagements can be ruled out because of the following facts.
- No film crew members were with them – ruling out the possibility of film shooting.
- No published program schedule in Pokhara. So, there is a little possibility of them participating in any program.
- They checked in a hotel Grande and locked themselves in.
- Pokhara is the

The Missing Women
It is good to see the talents like Gaurika Singh and Sipora Gurung in the Top 10 list. But, I think, the list misses some of the Nepali women who had been very attractive because of their good deeds in their respective fields:
