Now, it is turn of the head of the state to act like a king.
It is a huge sum of money for 8 cars for the president.
– President is a ceremonial post – she doesn’t have to do any work.
– She is paid for the post that doesn’t do any work – and causes jam in the road when she travels.
– She had demanded the cars in 2017. At that time Nepali Congress was in the government. But, it was delayed because of protest. The prime minister, Sher Bahadur Deuba, denied such demand at that time.
– Now, the president’s party, CPN is in power.
– To soften the protest, the purchase is done through Nepal Army.
Strange – isn’t it?

This is crazy – unheard of – record breaking video of a Nepali beauty queen that got 700,000 views in a day. Miss Nepal Shrinkhala Khatiwada released the introduction video in her own channel and it got 100s of thousands of views instantly. Watch the following video and you will say, “Yes, it deserves the attention.”:
Shrinkhala wrote a long post on how she prepared for the video, how she wrote the script and how the team worked on it to make it that good. The status is a clear indication that she also deserves the Miss World title this year. I believe, no other contestants have prepared themselves this much for the title.

Namaste everyone! I don't know where do I begin. I am out of words to express my gratitude towards the support and love that you have been showering us with! We released the introduction video last night and in less than 24 hrs, we've managed to get 6, 60,000 views! This is going to be a long caption, please bear with me ❤️ Ever since I was crowned as a Miss Nepal, I knew that I was going to Miss World carrying the entire country on my shoulders. The introduction video might not seem like a big deal but, for me it was a huge platform to represent Nepal to the world. Nepal is extremely diverse, and to show it in a short video whilst introducing my personal self was a big challenge. I wanted someone fresh and talented to do this project. Upon a lot of research, I decided that @abinbho was the best person who could do it. He seemed passionate, hard working and I felt like his work needed much more exposure. Luckily , he agreed as well! We must have had at least 10 meetings before we finalized on the entire concept. I would constantly write the script and scrap it off because it never seemed to capture the essence of my place and I. We finally had a concept and a rough script ready. We shot for more 10 days in total. Struggled a lot to find sponsors, to manage time, to manage all the necessary resources within hours notice. It's not easy when you have a nature of micro managing everything, but somehow, with a lot of support, we pulled it off! We had done the dubbing prior to the shoot. In between, we also had the music ready. I remember when Abin called at midnight to play the first draft of the music by incredibly talented @kobidbazra. We were hooked! Then was the most challenging part to piece it all together. We started out with a mindset of producing 2:30 long video but it couldn't execute the concept that we had. We had a draft ready but something felt missing every time. I got lucky to meet @sisanbaniya on our trip to Thailand. On one of the nights, I shared with him the idea and the script that I had planned, I remember he high fived me at least 10 times and promised to help us in any way possible. Which he whole heartedly did.. Cont'd..
The remaining part (lost in the sea of comments in the embeded post above):
The essence that felt missing, he filled it with his script and pieced it perfectly together. Most of the best parts of the script are mostly his ideas. We tweeked the music here and there and dubbed it again at the day after Laxmi Puja.
Abin has done an incredible job. He often used to tell me that he wanted to make this the best project of his life so far and I am so proud that it has actually turned out to be that way. Every single shot has a story and at least 15 backups behind it. We’ve really worked hard.
Most of the mesmerizing shots of Nepal are by @manish.maharjan444. He is another person who never fails to amaze me. Thank you so much for being a part of this incredible journey. He has a big role to play for both introduction video and bwap documentary.
There are a lot of people that I am due to thank @ASTIKSHERCHAN
kanchan di and kabita for making sure I looked good at freezing temperatures. @prashanna_07, ananta, rojan, sishir dai , nisha , Mohit, @ktmcty @anta @TRISHOOLSPORTS, JGI group, Nepal Tourism Board, The Hidden Treasure
Talking about the history – the closest Nepal has ever reached to the Miss World crown was in 2013. Miss Nepal Ishani Shrestha was one of the Top 10 that year. She had also won the Beauty with the Purpose title.
Shrinkhala is a well rounded personality – she has the charisma to outshine Ishani. Will, Shrinkhala Khatiwada create history for Nepal this year?
I believe she will !!
Watch the following video to know my thoughts:
There is a high chance that Shrinkhala Khatiwada, Miss Nepal 2018, might be able to bring home the Miss World crown. That is because, she is the most deserving candidate so far. There were capable contestants before. But, Shrinkhala seems to be better than all of them because of her confidence, intelligence and beauty.
An example of her talent was seen at the Talent round of Miss Nepal:
Like every years the Nepali celebrities worshiped goddess Laxmi, the goddess of wealth on the third day of Tihar.
Laxmi Puja of actress Neeta Dhungana:
The main attraction of the celebration is preparing beautiful rangoli and cooking good foods. Rangoli is the art imported from India. It is similar to our own Mandala art. Nepali celebrities make good rangoli and share them in their social media. I have collected some photos of the actresses showing their talent.
Some actresses made sel roti, a special delicacy of Tihar festival. The sweet bread made out of rice flour is quite popular in the festival. Here is a video report about how actresses learn the skill to make the bread:
Here are some photos of Laxmi Puja celebration:
I am starting a series of talk about the 2007 (2050-51) democratic movement led by the King Tribhuvan. It was an unique movement that was led by the ruler himself.
A foreigner woman was at the palace at that time. Erika Leuchtag had seen Tribhuvan’s involvement in the protest against the rulers. She had written a book on her stay in the royal palace and her acquaints with the King. I am presenting the information given in the book as a weekly series. The series is retelling of the information Erika had told in the book in Nepali language. It is not a translation so, I will be omitting the things that aren’t of value to my viewers.
The first part of the series will premier at Friday – November 9, 2018 – 12:00 AM ET. The first part is how Erika got the invitation and what was the response of her mother and her friends about going to Nepal.
After I recorded the first part, I came to know that Erika was a physiotherapist. I will give this detail in the second part. I haven’t done second part or any other parts yet. I am writing the script as I read through the book.
Part 1 : How Erika got an offer to go to Nepal?
Nepali Movie – Dhanapati

Another great movie of Khagendra Lamichhane, ‘Dhanapati’ is released online for the Tihar festival. The movie is about the life of lower middle class couple and their trouble. The film is a presentation of Tukee Arts in association with Dipendra K Khanal Production. The film was released in theatre on Ashar 23 of this year (July 7, 2018).

This is a 45 minutes long video – featuring an address by a political leader some 32 years ago. At that time, audio was distributed in audio cassettes. This audio was so popular among the people that the manufacturer couldn’t meet the demand. Some cassettes were also sold in black market.
The political leader was Padma Ratna Tuladhar, the first major politician who declared that the single party Panchayat system of that time was not suitable for the country of the people in the parliament at that time. The election and the political movement led to the people’s uprising of 2046 BS. That was three years after the address of Padma Ratna.
Padma Ratna Tuladhar died today (on November 4, 2018). In memory of the great leader, I have shared the 3-decade old political address of the leader. The address gives a glimpse of what the situation of Nepal was:
May Padma Ratna’s soul rest in peace.
A noted linguistic and writer, Dr. Taranath Sharma has told that the mother of King Birendra and ex-King Gyanendra was different. Birendra’s mother was then-crown princess Indra Rajyalaxmi Shah. According to the historical documents, the princess gave birth to six children – three sons and three daughters.
Indra Rajyalaxmi died in a mysterious circumstances on September 4, 1950. According to the official website of the first maternity hospital, Prasuti Griha, the princess had died because of the complications caused by the birth of her last child, Dhirendra Shah. But, Dhirendra was born on January 14, 1950.
Nepali Movie – A Mero Hajur 2
Starring – Samragyee RL Shah, Salin M Baniya etc.
Director – Jharana Thapa
‘A Mero Hajur’ sequel ‘A Mero Hajur 2’ is produced and directed by actress Jharana Thapa. The debut movie of Jharana as a director was successful in the box office. The hit actress of ‘Dreams’, Samragyee RL Shah’s second movie was also successful making her the most desirable and demanded actress in the film industry.

Nepali Film – Sunkesari
Starring – Richa Sharma, Rabindra Jha, Sunny Dhakal, Yami Parajuli etc.
Director – Arpan Thapa
The second movie produced by actress Richa Sharma also got mixed reviews. Richa’s production debut ‘Aadha Love’ was a failure. The actress has teamed up with Arpan Thapa to produce and direct these films. There were rumours of their relationship. But, Richa named them rumours and not being ture. Arpan is a married man so, Richa requested not to spread such rumours. The film features child artist Yami Parajulli. Yami’s acting was highly appreciated. The movie was shot in location in Australia. A very few horror films are made in Nepal and this is one of such few films. It seems this genre doesn’t appeal much to Nepali viewers.
The film production team has annouced the sequel of the movie ‘Sunkesari 2’. But, the details of the release schedule is not known.

The director of Nepali movie ‘Aishwarya’, Deewakar Bhattarai, has married the actress of the film, Deepika Prasain. The director had introduced the actress in the film industry in the movie and they had started dating while the film was being shot. Now, Deewakar and Deepika have confirmed the relationship and have told that they have performed an official engagement ceremony with the friends and families of both parties.
In an interview, Deepika has also told that they had also married in the court during the shooting of ‘Aishwarya’ and kept it a secret. Deepak and Deepika are also planning to perform a traditional marriage ceremony in the future. For now, they are in a Thailand tour – a honeymoon tour. It sure is a strange relationship – with unique 3-step marriage

Then they probably talked about the relationship with their parents and then performed an engagement and the third
Deepika debuted in ‘Aishwarya’ and her second film, ‘Chhakka Panja 3’ has also been successful. The director Diwakar Bhattarai is also known to be a well known director. He was the assistant director of ‘Dreams’, the debut film of Bhuwan KC as a director. He has also directed another Bhuwan KC film, featuring Anmol KC in lead role, ‘Captain’.

The newly-married couple of Rupa Thapa Magar met with an accident while going home from Rupa’s parental home. They were returning home after their first visit of Rupa’s parental home after marriage. The tragic event that happened after 11 days of the marriage took the life of Rupa Thapa and her husband Mahesh Pun is struggling in life-threatning condition in the hospital.
Rupa Thapa had acted in a Magar film titled ‘Larfu’ (Pachayuri) and was also a radio jockey in various FM stations in Palpa.
Rupa and Mahesh were returning home from Palpa to Gulmi in a scooter. The scooter Lu 37 Pa 3090 crashed with a car (SUV) number Lu 1 Cha 7256 coming from opposite direction at Myalunga of Syanjga. The couple were seriously injured in the accident and were rushed to the local hospital – Lumbini Medical College Hospital in Palpa. Rupa was pronounced dead and Mahesh is being treated in the hospital.
The video featuring the details of the scandal between Paras Shah and Ram Krishna Dhakal has gained an unprecedented viewership in YouTube. The video attracted a lot of negative comments. But, those who liked the video made it popular without commenting.
Although the video didn’t have any new information, people assumed it to give a negative message. I believe there is more to the story that what is being told by either Ram Krishna Dhakal or the others.
The Truth about Ram Krishna Dhakal and Paras Shah
I would rather say it is a half truth. Because, the full truth won’t be revealed either by Ram Krishna or Paras. The half-truth is:
The MahaNayak, Rajesh Hamal, delays the Dashain Tika by a day because his mother died on the Vijaya Dashami day. He remembers his mothers, performs Shradha puja and mourns on the 10th day of the festival. While all others enjoy and celebrate, Hamal doesn’t celebrate because, his mother suffered from depression.
He didn’t know his mother was depressed when she fell ill after the untimely death of his father. Hamal’s father Chura Bahadur Hamal was the ambassador of Pakistan. On the day he submitted his appointment letter, Hamal died of heart attack. After the sad incident, his wife went into a long mourning. She didn’t recover after that. Rajesh Hamal remembers, his mother going through tough time and smoking a lot.
At that time, the family members didn’t know that she could have been cured by medical doctors. Later Hamal realized it and told it was their lack of knowledge he lost his mother (watch the following video to see Hamal speak about the incident).
Rajesh Hamal’s parents were love birds who fell in love while travelling in a train in India. That was a very long time ago. They were deeply in love for each other for as long as they lived. I had also prepared a love story video of the two (the video was very popular among my viewers).
