The study conducted in Khasa and Kuti of Tibet by Maiti Nepal for a month reveals that Nepali girls, who have been trafficked to China by luring them of dignified and decent jobs, are working under vulnerable conditions in different cities.
RSS writes quoting the study that Nepali girls are forced to work in cabins, restaurants, lodges and dance bars and their documents were under the control of owners of dance bars and restaurants so that the Nepali girls can return home during their convenient time only.
The study reveals that among 137 interviewed girls, 50 per cent said they were working under hardships against their interests.
The survey shows most of girls are from Tamang, Gurung, Rai and Limbu communities and most are from bordering areas of Sindhupalchowk district including Tatopani and others. Girls from 17 districts including Sindhupalchowk, Kavre, Kathmandu, and even Tarai have also gone to Chinese city.
The study found it was more difficult to get rid of the Chinese bars and restaurants than escaping from the Indian brothels. However, Nepali girls are earning high income than in the Indian cities. They are earning Rs 8,000 to Rs 15,000 per month, according to Program Officer at Maiti Nepal, Sindhupalchowk, Madan Chaulagain.
Chaulagain said that from Friday Maiti Nepal has established its office in Kodari aiming to bar the Nepali girls from going in Chinese cities for doing risky jobs and a campaign has been started in Dhunche VDC, the district headquarters of Rasuwa district, to control human trafficking there.

We haven’t heard much good news about Manisha Koirala these days. Her re-entry in Nepali movie wasn’t that effective and the marriage didn’t work either. She had been seeking inner peace by visiting various yoga camps and she still doesn’t seem to have gathered herself up, yet.
Manisha was caught in a very unpleasant drunken state at a newly opened restaurant. It was the opening ceremony of the new restaurant, Versova, owned and operated by her ex-boyfriend Prashant Chaudhari.
Dressed in black-grey dress, Manisha, wasn’t able to control herself and was escorted to her residence by her friends.
It shouldn’t have been a big deal whether the Maoist Chairman , Prachanda, purchased or leased the new residence. Everybody needs a residence and a leader like Prachanda wouldn’t fit in a small house. At the same time, leaders needs to be transparent on everything they do and shouldn’t try to hide things specially related to financial dealings.
Prachanda’s son Prakash, in his Facebook post, told that the new residence is leased f
or Rs. 60,000 a month. The quoted lease amount is believed to be extremely cheap for such a building made on a land of three ropani. There was a rumor that the building wasn’t leased but purchased. A weekly newspaper, Sanghu, has published a details on the purchase of the building and asked Prachanda to be transparent on the financial dealings on the purchase of the new residence.
A proposal of paying fixed salaries to priests of the Pashupatinath temple authorizing the Culture Ministry to handle the monetary offerings to the Hindu shrine has been submitted to Culture Minister Gopal Kirati.
A subcommittee formed in November last year to maintain transparency of monetary offerings has proposed this according to which the four sections of “sacred” priests—Bhatta, Bhandari, Bishet and Rairakami—will receive salaries and perks as provided to civil servants by the government. The Mul Bhatta, chief of the four Bhatta priests, will receive Rs 40,000 monthly and a daily allowance of Rs 3,000. The remaining three Bhatta priests will receive Rs 30,000 per month and Rs 2,000 in daily allowance as published in ekantipur
As 101 Bhandaris are handling temple affairs for a period of one month in turn, Kirati said that there are some technical problems for their salary.
According to Kirati, 8 Bishets, who are responsible for managing logistics at the main temple, have already been receiving some amount of money as salary from the Pashupati Area Development Trust. It is equivalent to that received by a section officer in government service. Rairakamis receive salaries as non-gazetted government officials depending on their responsibility.
