In response to the latest statement of the Tibetan religious leader, Dalai Lama’s comment about the birthplace of Buddha, a lot of Nepali people have termed him as “The Lie Lama”. Nepali superstar, Rajesh Hamal, has also responded in retaliation against the Lama’s statement.
Hamal wrote, “I’m appalled by the statement made by so called bastion of Truth and Compassion. Not even in my wildest imagination I though he would stoop so low by distorting the Truth, just to gain political milage.”
He added, “Your holiness there is a saying ‘you can fool some people some time but you can’t fool all the people all the time’…”
What did Dalai Lama say?

We don’t have bikini round in Miss Nepal. In the history of beauty contests, the only beauty contest to ever have a swimsuit round was Miss Kathmandu 2017 (Read more about Miss Kathmandu 2017 here). Not having such contest at home and participating in international beauty contest has a certain disadvantage. For example, the current Miss Asia Pacific Nepal, Sahara Basnet, wore bikini for the first time in Philippines, in the finale of Miss Asia Pacific International 2017. It is anybody’s guess how the self-consicous beauty might have performed at the contest.
I think, it is time to re-think the decision not to have bikini round in Miss Nepal. They should have the round just to prepare themselves for the international arena they will have to compete in.
Sahara Basnet bikini experience
The following text is what Sahara wrote about her experience in the swimsuit. In summary:
- Sahara has always been a shy and introvert girl
- Sahara had never worn a bikini before.
- While wearing bikini itself was awkward for her, doing a photoshoot in one was the thing she had never thought about. Doing bikini photoshoot and walking wearing them was not easy for her. (That was done in the finale of an international beauty contest)
Such experience is not something a representative of the whole country should have. She should have been prepared for everything including the bikini rounds.
The organizers should learn from the experiences of the participants and prepare themselves for those surprises. Even if there was no bikini round in Miss Nepal beauty contest, Sahara had enough time to practice wearing bikini at home and prepare herself to be comfortable in it.
No she didn’t.
But, the photo of herself biting on the award medal, she shared in her Instagram, surely qualifies her to win an award. Don’t you think so?
The Films Critics Society of Nepal (FICSON) has distributed the Critics Award for the last three years in a program held in Kathmandu. The awards for the year 2071, 2072 and 2073 were distributed in the event. Although the award is distributed this year, the Critics Award 2015 was announced in 2015. (news of Critics Award 2015)

The first ever Miss Universe Nepal Nagma Shrestha is currently in Las Vegas, USA, participating in the 67th edition of Miss Universe. Nagma’s catwalk wearing a black two piece swimsuit went very well and she did impress the audience.
It went well and the announcer said, “Nepal has a degree in business administration. But, her real interest lies in television production. This 26-years-old has a popular YouTube channel and has been a TV host since she was sixteen.”
But, as she was returning back from the stage, she tripped over and fell down. She tried to regain control before falling but couldn’t and fell down. A guy rushed in to help her get up. See the video at around 5:30 in the following video:
I wrote about the navel piercing among Nepali actresses and the ex-princess, Himani Shah in my previous article. While writing and collecting materials for a video report on navel piercing, I looked for the information on how this fashion had originated. I looked into ancient Hindu literatures and modern fashion resources to get the idea.
Ancient Hindu literature
One of the most important literature or DYI books in Hindu literature is Kamasutra. The ancient text written by Vatsayan is a guide to a virtuous and gracious living that discusses the nature of love, family life, and other aspects pertaining to pleasure-oriented faculties of human life. Historians believe the Kama Sutra to have been composed between 400 BCE and 200 CE. John Keay says that the Kama Sutra is a compendium that was collected into its present form in the 2nd century CE.

About ‘Kanchi Matyang Tyang’
The movie ‘Kanchi Matyang Tyang’ is a comedy movie by director Puran Thapa. Well known in small screen films, Puran, had debuted in a big screen movie in this comedy movie. The movie is produced by Basanta Raj Tamang.

Here are the movies featuring the top actress of the Nepali movie industry, Rekha Thapa and top action star of Nepali movie industry, Biraj Bhatt. Biraj left the film industry after he became a well known Bhojpuri actor.
Rekha and Biraj are not in good terms these days. Rekha is still active in producing more Nepali movies but, Biraj is trying to comeback in Nepali film industry after ruling the Bhojpuri film industry for some time. His comeback film ‘Jaya Parshuram’ however wasn’t as successful as expected. When Rekha made up with Aryan Sigdel and signed him up in her home production movie, ‘Rudrapriya’, a possibility of seeing Biraj and Rekha together now seem like a possibility. But, Aryan’s comeback in Rekha Films wasn’t as successful as expected.
The CPN Maoist supremo, Prachanda, is the father of three daughters and a son. He has lost half of his children in the span of 4 years.
Throughout the 10 years and 9 months long people’s war a lot of people died. Reports say that more than 19,000 people had died collectively in Maoist side and the government side. In such a crisis situation, the commander of the rebel army, Prachanda had managed to save himself and his family. Now, when the war ended and everything is going on smoothly, he has lost half of his children to the medical conditions that he can’t control. He had lost a daughter to cancer and the son to heart problem.
Dahal’s only son Prakash Dahal had died on November 19, 2017 at the age of 38. According to the hospital source he had died at around 3 AM while sleeping in his residence in Lazimpat. He was discovered at 5 AM and was rushed to the hospital.
4 years ago, Prachanda had lost his eldest daughter, Gyanu KC because of breast cancer. The 40-years-old KC died on March 27, 2014 while undergoing treatment.
Although the death of Prakash Dahal, the son of Prachanda ,is confirmed by different sources, it is not officially announced. Prachand’s long time associate, Dr. Baburam Bhattarai has also confirmed the death and has sent his condolences through social media.
Why the delay in official announcement?
The hospital hasn’t officially announced the death of Prakash Dahal. But, everybody else including the family have confirmed the death. Prachanda has taken a helicopter to return back to Kathmandu from Jhapa where he was in the election campaign. The official announcement of the death is expected after Prachanda arrives at the hospital.
Why Prakash didn’t go with his father to Jhapa?
Prakash has been assisting his father in most of his works for a long time. He used to be with his father most of the time. On the day before his death, he was helping his father in election campaign in Chitwan. On Saturday, Prachanda had to go to Jhapa to address the mass meeting there. He had asked his son to go with him but, Prakash told that he wasn’t feeling well. He decided to go to Kathmandu to take rest instead.
The only son of CPN Maoist (Center), Puspa Kamal Dahal, Prachanda, has died in the morning of November 18, 2017. Prakash was taken to hospital at around 5 in the morning. According to the hospital source he had died before he reached the hospital.
Twitter update by journalist Vijaya Kumar Pandey:
Prakash Dahal had been a controversial figure in the Nepali politics. Apart from being the son of one of the most influential person in the Nepali politics he was talked about for his personal relationships.
It is a sad incident and I wish the deceased soul rest in peace.
Prachanda is currently in Jhapa for the election campaign. He has reportedly returned back to Kathamndu as soon as he heard the news of his son’s demise.
UPDATE: Prakash had heart failure at 5:38 and he was admitted to Norvic Hospital at 6:00 AM. Although he was brought at hospital at 5:45 AM, the initial investigation show that the first stroke happened at 1 AM.
In the report, the mother Sita Dahal also has health problems. A team of doctors is treating Sita Dahal in their residence at Lazimpat. While the father Prachanda is arriving from Biratnagar, Prakash’s wife Bina Magar is arriving from Kanchanpur.
A huge crowd has gathered at the hospital. Maoist leaders including Ram Bahadur Thapa ‘Badal’ and Giriraj Mani Pokharel have reached the hospital. A big force of police is also providing security at the hospital.
