One of the most popular husband-wife couple of Nepali music industry is Uday and Manila Sotang couple.
The husband and wife have already released more than 11 albums. Their popular songs are Aadi Bato, Maya Namara, Aaja Timro, Bhijyo Sirani.
Originally from Darjeeling, Udaya and Manila came to Nepal in the late 80s to do voice tests at Radio Nepal. Today, they are some of the most celebrated artists, with huge attendance in concerts. One of Uday’s cousin was a huge fan of late Narayan Gopal. Uday used to sneak into his cousin’s room to practice in the harmonium secretly. Uday started singing early. He sang in his school and there were many fans of his in his school days. He started sining in contests in his grade eight, nine and tenth grade. Before he graduated from the school, the school offered him to release an album called Filingo. He was a successful singer even before he finished his grade ten.
On the other hand, Manila was trained by her uncle, to sing bhajans. When Manila heard Uday’s songs, she liked his voice even before she met him. When she finally met Uday, she was surprised to find him so young. Because of his voice he had expected Uday to be a lot older. They later were in the same group of singers to perform in various events. Uday was having an affair with somebody else when Manila met him.

A lot of Nepali people know Udit Narayan Jha as the most successful Nepali singer in Bollywood. But, many don’t know similarly successful Nepali singer, Poornima Shrestha. May be that is because Udit was a celebrity in Nepal before he debuted in Bollywood. In case of Poornima, she was born in Mumbai and lived her whole life in India.
[Biography Video] will be ready by Poornima’s birthday on September 5.
Poornima debuted as a child singer in early 1970s, as Sushma Shrestha. Sushma was born to a musical family of late Bhola Shrestha. Bhola Shrestha was an accomplished music composer and a tabala player. He was active in the music industry in the 1950s and 1960s. The father was really excited about launching his daughter in Bollywood as a successful singer. He had organized a big launch event of Sushma Shrestha with high profile Bollywood guests. A day before such a great event, her father died of heart failure. That was 11 April, 1971. That was after half-a-year of the release of the film Andaz (1971), and the debut song of Sushma.
Although her father died on the day before, 10-years-old Sushma was forced to perform in the event on April 12. The event couldn’t be cancelled because of all the preparations. At the event, Bollywood personalities took note of Sushma’s talent and she also got a music scholarship to help in her music career.
At the time of her first public performance, Sushma was just 7-years old. When she sang for the Bollywood movie ‘Andaz’, she was 9 years old.
She also worked with another musical duo Kalyanji Anandji who helped her in making a successful child singer of the 70s. RD Burman also helped her to give voice to hit songs of that time. RD Burman had composed unforgettable songs for Sushma like “Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi” of film Aa Gale Lag Jaa (1973) and “Kya Hua Tera Vaada” of film Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahi (1977).
A well known Bollywood singer Udit Narayan Jha went to Mumbai in the Embassy of India scholarship in 1978. He was an employee of Radio Nepal prior to going to India for music studies. Apart from a well known singer, he was also an actor of superhit movie ‘Kusume Rumal’.
Udit Narayan Jha struggled in India for 10 years before he got successful. The movie ‘Kayamat Se Kayamat Tak’, the debut movie of Aamir Khan became successful helping both Aamir and Udit to establish themselves in Bollywood.
Full biography of Udit Narayan:
He was born in Saptari, Bhardaha to Nepali father and Indian mother. He later claimed that he was born in his maternal uncle’s home in Bihar after the Indian government honored him with the biggest civilian award – Padma Shree Award and Padma Bhusan Award.
Udit Narayan Jha left Nepali citizenship to get Indian one and is now Indian passport holder.
Udit was married before he went to Mumbai. His wife was living in Saptari. But, in India he met Geeta Gahatraj, a well known singer. They got close and got married. Geeta and Udit have a son, Aditya Narayan Jha. Continue reading

On his birthday, let me wish his soul rest in peace. Let’s go back in time and watch a few remarkable photos of the late king and the royal family of that time. Continue reading
In the past, when you call Karishma Manandhar an “uneducated actress”, she would respond in anger. Now, the situation has changed. She accepts, she is uneducated and she is doing all she can to change that. She had lived her whole life being tagged “uneducated”.
But, Karishma had always taken the accusation a challenge. A 6th grade passed actress (she was in grade 7 when she stared acting). She never appeared in grade 7 exam. In the Nepali education system, where English language teaching starts at grade 4, Karishma had only studied English for 2 years. The same Karishma went to the USA, studied English language and wrote articles in her personal blog (it is sad, I didn’t save her blog posts at that time. I couldn’t find any saved archives of her blog yet.) When I read her posts at that time, she seemed to be well in command of the language. She passed the English language test to get the Green Card. It is another story that, she might have relinquished the card now.
Karishma Manandhar is a history in herself. She has faced the struggle nobody else in the Nepali film industry might have faced. She is a fighter who knows how to take the right step and succeed in what she does. Continue reading

Today is Prithivi Jayanti, Ekata Diwas. Prithivi Narayan Shah is credited for the unification of Nepal at the time when the country was divided into smaller states. There are three types of people who:
Support Prithivi Narayan and consider him a great person
Are indifferent of Prithivi and are neutral
Against Prithivi Narayan
Those who support believe it was Prithivi who saved Nepal from going under the British rule. He created an identity of Nepal and Nepali people.
Others don’t care because, Prithivi happened to be one of the stronger kings who could win other states. Other kings were also trying to do the same but they failed. It was Prithivi’s job to extend the boundary of his kingdom at that time. They believe he was doing his job and nothing more or less.
The third category people are against Prithivi because he killed a lot of people to win other states. His attack to Kathmandu valley is believed to be particularly brutal. He installed new language and system in the valley. The Newar culture and language became sub-standard to Nepali language.
All three types of people are right to some extent. I don’t want to go in details on who is more right.
I want to discuss – what is the real face of Prithivi. A video report first:
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.
पूर्व प्रधानमन्त्री पुष्पकमल दाहाल प्रचण्ड र सीता दाहालका सुपुत्र प्रकाश दाहालको अल्पायुमै आकस्मिक निधनले स्तव्ध र मर्माहत भएको छु।मृतकप्रति हार्दिक श्रद्धांजली र शोकसन्तप्त परिवारजनमा गहीरो समवेदना प्रकट गर्दछु! pic.twitter.com/djb4BYJBvp
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. Continue reading
