Who says bikini is no dress? It seems, the organizers of beauty contests in Nepal think it’s not a dress – hence, there aren’t any bikini rounds. Although there weren’t any bikini rounds in the beauty contest of Nepali beauties in the USA, the best dressed beauty was wearing one.
The judges found the bikini clad beauty Ruby Adhikari the best dressed beauty in the Miss Nepal USA 2011 beauty contest. Sujita Basnet was crowned the Miss Nepal USA 2011.
Best Dress Miss Nepal USA 2011, Ruby Adhikar
Ruby is a bold beauty who dares to be different from the crowd. The talented beauty, had also designed the winning dress herself.
Mustang is the first and the only one vehicle assembled in Nepal. It is told that, most of the parts of the vehicle are imported from India and it is one of the cheapest vehicle available in Nepal.
Baburam’s choice of vehicle has been praised by everybody and this movie will surely skyrocket the sales of the vehicle in Nepal. If the producers can keep it’s reliability high enough, it will be successful in capturing the Nepali market.

Newly appointed PM Baburam Bhattarai has opted to ride a made-in Nepal vehicle, ‘Mustang’ jeep as a slap in the face of his predecessor. After his appointment as PM, did not continue tradition of choosing luxurious vehicles.
Bhattarai arrived at Singha Durbar in his new ‘Mustang’ van, to take charge of his new office, after being sworn in as the new prime minister. The vehicle was first brought at the Home Ministry and later it was taken to the president’s residence at Shital Niwas, where Bhattarai took oath.
Bhattarai’s ‘unique choice’ was admired by everyone wherever it went on Monday.
‘Mustang’ is the first vehicle to be made in Nepal by Hulas Motors. The vehicle neither has an air conditioner nor an automated window screen.

More about Father’s Day, Kushe Aunshi and Moti Jayanti (In Nepali).
People all over the country are observing Father’s Day (Buwa ko mukh herne din) and Kushe Aunshi festival on Monday.
The major market places in the Valley have been busy since early morning with people shopping for sweets, fruits, and buying gifts for their dearly loved fathers. Today is the occasion of commemorating the love and the tie between fathers and their children and children bows to touch their father’s feet with their foreheads to express their reverence.
Those whose fathers have already passed away visit Gokarneswor temple and other sacred spots, and pray for peace to the departed soul. They also perform ‘shraddha’ to honor their deceased fathers.
On this Kushe Aunshi, Brahmins visit different houses distributing Kush, a sacred plant, in different houses chanting mantras of Veda.

When I introduced myself to a Canadian friend, she asked the most dreaded question, again:
"Where is Nepal?"
Rabindra Shrestha, 50-year-old father of a college-age daughter and a minister in-office, eloped with a 22-year-old student in February. Dipak Bhattarai named him the Valentine Hero and I wrote about it in a post at that time.
After a long silence, the couple have re-surfaced as husband and wife. In the photo above, Supekchya has sported, red Sindoor, a sign of a married woman.
Before we argue if they have done something good for the society
, let’s evaluate some of the Facebook posts of Supekchya:
Although they had run away in February, Supekshya waited for more than two months to announce her marriage. On April 22, she changed her profile to married.
It seems, the marriage of Manisha Koirala with Samrat Dahal is not going to last long. Last time, Manisha posted about her intention of divorce in May. She has done it again – by posting a bit more sad and harsh message in Facebook. The message reads:
My husband has become my enemy. How much worst can it become for a women?
Last time, the difference between the couple was was patched when friends and families helped them to soothe the relationship wounds. Manisha clarified that it was a minor issue with her husband.

If an Ambassador can’t deal with a blogger, how can he deal with the foreign government?
The diplomatic height of Nepali Ambassador in France, Mohan Bikram Shrestha, is clearly seen by the way he dealt with a problem caused by Teej invitation.
Nepali Embassy in France organized a cultural program, Teej and invited people to participate in the program through the Embassy letter pad.
The problem – the wife of the Ambassador, Sajana Shrestha, signed the invitation instead of Ambassador. She shouldn’t have the authority to write in Embassy letter pad. Blogger friend in Dadhi Sapkota wrote about it in his blog.
The embassy should have realized the mistake and apologized. But, it didn’t. The response was more defensive and it tried to hide the mistake in their part:
A cartoon speaks volume! It lighten-up the mood, helps to make fun of some serious matter and brings smile in your face.
The creator however remains in the background and won’t be visible to the general public. So, here is the “Phalano guy” with his cartoon character looking at the cartoon Rajesh is making:
