Nepali beauty Samriddhi Rai who represented Nepal in the Miss Tourism Queen International 2011 held in China, was successful in winning a Miss Personality title.
Although, it might not be a greatest feat for others, for Nepal it is no less than winning the contest title. That is because, in most of the contests Nepali models participate, they don’t win anything and none have won a contest title till date. So, we should congratulate Samriddhi for making us proud by bringing in something.
Yes, she looked gorgeous in blue bikini!!
She also looked great in a dhaka skirt in the National Custom Round:

WikiLeaks website couldn’t be opened in the US and Europe today. WikiLeaks official said that the site was under a forceful internet-based attack causing site to be inaccessible to the users in U.S. and Europe. A British newspaper, Dailymail, reports that the current attack is most likely coming from China. Earlier, it was reported that China has blocked the website within the country.
Various political leaders have wished to punish the 39 year-old founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange for releasing the confidential diplomatic documents.
WikiLeaks has created a ripple in the diplomatic circle all around the world and China has already blocked the website. Now, a Canadian politician wanted the founder of the website, Julian Assange, dead.
In an interview with CBC news, an adviser to Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister of Canada, Prof Tom Flanagan, said, “I think Assange should be assassinated actually … There is no good coming of this.”
A t the end
of the interview, Prof Flangan added, “I wouldn’t feel unhappy if Assange disappeared.”
Interpol has issued a “Red Notice” alert for Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, in relation to two rape charges issued by Swedish police.
The 39 year-old Julian Assange, is already facing legal problems on an unrelated case. Interpol has issued "Red Notice" alert for him in charge of two rape charges issued by Swedish police.
The WikiLeaks website was blocked in China on Wednesday in an attempt to save face to during the potentially embarrassing situation when the leaked U.S. diplomatic cables will be posted in the site. Now, WikiLeaks has joined the wide range of Western websites including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Some of the cables related to China are told to contain communications stating -
- China’s Politburo directed a cyber intrusion into Google’s computer systems…
- Chinese diplomat quoted describing North Korea as a "spoiled child" …
- North Korea’s communist regime would likely collapse within three years of the death of ruler Kim Jong Il
- Chinese leaders were prepared to accept South Korea’s eventual rule
Little is known about what is there in case of Nepal. I wonder if the Nepal government wants to block the website in Nepal.

Made of 6,500ft of straw wrapped around a steel structure, the giant phallus is a monster-sized 30 feet high and it stands on top of a 1,250-foot-tall Qinlong Hill. The erection, claimed to be the largest in the world is named Sky Pillar and has been built at Longwan Shaman Amusement Park in Changchun city.
“It is a totem of Shamanistic culture, which originated in this city,” says the president of the park, Cheng Weiguang.
Legend says a Shaman hero named Ewenki vanquished a cruel female ruler and gave her a penis totem, telling her to respect males and not kill them at will.
After this, the ruler set a penis totem on top of the hill, reports East Asia Economic and Trade News.
Shi Lixue, director of the China Folk Culture Association, backed the project, saying: “It symbolizes our ancestors’ pursuit of happiness and prosperity.”
And, although some tourists said they felt uncomfortable about the statue, others were unmoved.
“It’s just a pillar. I don’t care. It can be a symbol of the park,” said one mother who was visiting the park with her child.
