Here are some of the childhood memories of Nepali actor Rajesh Hamal. The superstar of Nepali film industry has always been cute and handsome. It seems, Rajesh was always a fan of long hair. In this ancient photo of Rajesh is seen with long hair. In the photo he seems to be stylist and fashion conscious even before he entered his teens.
The controversial model Tirsana Budhathoki has decided to go artistic by painting her body in Nepali flag and the problem caused by the Indian blockade. The controlled blockade at the Indian border has caused a very harsh condition in the livelihood of Nepali people. The people have been going through acute shortage of daily essentials like cooking gas, vehicle fuel, aircraft fuel and medicine.
Although the Indian government officials deny such blockade and blame the agitating Madhesh parties in the Terai region. But, the Indian government officials had been telling that the blockade is done to punish Nepal for not listening them in writing the Constitution.
Actor Rajesh Hamal is currently in the USA. He was invited by actress Jal Shah to participate in a cultural program held in Salt Lake City on November 1. After the program, Rajesh is meeting his relatives and having fun. I have compiled photos Rajesh has shared to give you the glimpse of the places he went and the people he met.
On a October 29 post Rajesh said, “In 48 hours I have moved from lush green jungles of Chitwan to concrete jungle called New York.” That was poste from Summit, NJ. In the photos he is wearing a rough jeans torn at the knees.
On October 27 he was playing with elephants in Chitwan. The following photos is
On October 31, Halloween day, Rajesh was at Jal Shah’s house. He shared photos of himself with the actress and with the trick-or-treating kids. For some reason, Rajesh later deleted those photos. Here is one of those photos:

The second biggest festival in Nepal after Dashain, Tihar has been wrapped up on Friday November 13. The last day of Tihar – Bhai Tika is celebrated by brothers and sisters to show their love and dedication to each other. On the occasion, despite of economic blockade from India, people have followed the tradition. Update
Top 5 Bhai Tika moments:
- Komal Oli’s petrol presents to her brothers
- Palpasa Dangol’s – Bhaitika in Teaching Hospital
- Dilip Rayamajhi and Jal Shah celebrate Bhai Tika after 13 years
- Rista Basnet got well just in time for Bhai Tika
- New sisters and brothers
The beauty of Bhai Tika is that people make new brothers and sisters during the festival. For example, Takme Budha (Wilson Bikram Rai) and Ashma DC and Sanyukta Puri, Jal Shah and Bikrant Basnet, Nisha Sunar and Suman Budha Magar, Naresh Bhattarai and Sapana Chamling Rai became new brothers/sisters this year.
Singer, journalist and actress Komal Oli made this year’s Bhai Tika memorable by presenting 2-litres petrol to each of her brothers. At the time of petrol-crisis in Nepal, that would certainly made the happiest brothers.
Comedy actress Palpasa Dangol, popularly known as Chamsuri has urine infection and was rushed to emergency room in Teaching Hospital right before Bhai Tika. As she had to be treated in the hospital, her brothers visited Dangol in hospital bed to take Bhai Tika. Palpasa has told that that was one of the most memorable Bhai Tika in her life.
