Children do what they see. Children learn from imitating other’s act. They imitate what others do without thinking whether it is good or not. If they imitate good one, that will give good result. But if they imitate wrong thing, it may lead them to wrong way and even may harm them and others.
Likewise, they like to imitate the act of film stars too. While imitating such act in Taplejung, bad incident has occurred.
11 years old Keshar Purtel has got injured while imitating the act of famous Nepali fiim star Nikhil Uprety. Keshar poured kerosene on himself and lit the fire.

According to media report, similar incident has occurred earlier too in Nepalgunj and one boy jumped from terrace imitating the act of actor Biraj Bhatta.

Dev Shamsher known as reformist Prime Minister was the fourth of 17 sons born to the Chief of the Army Dhir Shamsher Rana (a younger brother of Jang Bahadur) and Rani Nanda Kumari, niece of Bhimsen Thapa and Mathbar Singh Thapa who were both prime ministers of Nepal.
His father and brothers had difficulties in maintaining a huge family. The Shamshers were poorer than the Jung Bahadur’s family and other cousins. To ease the burden on Dhir Shamsher, Dev Shamsher was adopted at a very young age by his father’s childless elder brother, General Krishna Bahadur Kunwar Rana and was raised by him and his wife.
Dev Shamsher had wanted to start a parliamentary system, and he was very impressed by the system in Great Britain. But, his reforms were not liked his brothers. He was later forced to resign by a coalition of his brothers (Chandra Shamsher and others) who opposed to hi
s progressive policies, and was forced to take refuge to India.

An illustrated article on how the Nepali Police DIG Ranjan Koirala killed his wife, published in Nepali daily Kantipur, seems more like a tutorial now how to kill rather than a news article.
The police officer, Koirala, who was had a master’s degree on Criminal Psychology and had worked in Crime Branch in Nepal Police, had experience on such crimes and he had done his best to hide his crime. Publishing all the details of the crime in the newspaper makes it looks more like a procedure of committing such crime than preventing it.
Read the full article in Kantipur webstie (in Nepali).
We hope the journalists take their social responsibilities more seriously and publish only the details that is required to explain the situation.
