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.

The ‘Ma’ of Ma-Ha, Madan Krishna Shrestha, lost his dearest wife to colon cancer on April 2, 2018. Yesodha Subedi was 67 years old. Madan and Yesodha have a son and a daughter. The son, Yaman Shrestha, is named after the parents “Ya” for Yasodha and “Man” for Madan.
UPDATE from Pashupati Arya Ghat:
Watch the video report (and their love story):
Madan Krishna’s love story:
Madan Krishna remembers found and tied the knot with his partner Yasodha Subedi when he was 23 years old. That was in the early 70s – a time when people of different caste were not allowed to marry, by the society. Subedi and Shrestha shared a common workspace at Sanchaya Kosh. At the time, Yasodha started to work as an assistant accountant, Madan had been working there for three.
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.
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.
I have prepared a biography video of the prime minister of Nepal. Starting this week, I am planning to produce a biography video of a celebrity every week and publish on Sunday. There will be 52 biographies in a year. This week’s biography is of the new prime minister of Nepal, Sher Bahadur Deuba. Watch the video first before reading the details of his life:
Who is Sher Bahadur Deuba?
From a simple family of a village in Dadeldhura, Sher Bahadur Deuba is one of the major political personality in Nepal. He started his political career as a student leader. In the start, Nepali Congress leader, BP Koirala, had supported Deuba in the party. After BP’s death Nepali Congress was led jointly by Ganesh Man Singh, Krishna Prasad Bhattarai and Girija Prasad Koirala. After the death of Ganesh Man and Krishna Prasad, Girija was the sole leader of the party. The only leader in the party to challenge Girija was Deuba. He managed to become Prime Minister despite Girija Prasad Koirala. It is believed that Girija was one of the forces behind the impeachment of Deuba in his first tenure as the prime minister.

In ‘Prem Geet’ Pooja Sharma romanced with Pradeep Khadka, but in ‘Prem Geet 2’ Pradeep romances with Aslesha. It seems, Aslesha is a more open than Pooja Sharma in terms of showing off her body.

UPDATE – Bomjon’s mother had gone to the police to help rescue her daughter, Bomjon’s younger sister, Ranjita Bomjon, when he abducted her. The following photo was published in a local daily ‘Prateek Daily’.
And another story published in Nijgadh.com:
The Buddha Boy made news in international media when the news of his meditation spread like a fire in 2005-06. After that he has been making news in more negative than positive ones. Ram Bahadur Bomjon has renamed himself a difficult name and had conducted a Maitri Convention in Lalitpur. I prepared a video introduction of the self-claimed God (attached below).
Being God is not easy. And, Gods punish the bad people. May be that is what is doing by punishing people – kidnapping and beating and even killing his own sibling. According to a report published in Setopati, he was the cause of the death of his elder sister. He has also punished a guy in the forest area where he lives. According to the source quoted by Setopati, the guy is fighting for his life.
Bomjon and his followers keep their residence in a tight security surveillance. Nobody knows what happens in side the area inside a huge forest.
I have collected the news snippets from the past about some of the interesting events in the following video:
Jharana Bajracharya is one of the leading actresses in Nepali movie industry. She is also considered one of the hottest celebrity in Nepal. The Miss Nepal of 1997, Jharana, has surrounded herself with a lot of controversy with her movies, music and affairs.
Jharana Bajracharya Controversies
Miss Nepal Controversy
People started to notice Jharana after she participated and won Miss Nepal World 1997 beauty contest. But, the contest itself was very controversial. The organizer of Miss Nepal contest Kathmandu Jaycees had already organized the Miss Nepal contest and Neelima Gurung was the Miss Nepal 1997. The organizers of Miss Nepal World was in fact the company that Jaycees had employed to organize the previous Miss Nepal. After Hidden Treasure made an agreement with the Miss World organizers to send the Nepal representative, they just bypassed the original organizers and organized Miss Nepal World. Jaycees gave up the fight and after 1997 only one Miss Nepal – Miss Nepal World was held.
These days both Neelima and Jharana are considered Miss Nepal 1997.
Vulgar role in Hindi Movie
Jharana Bajracharya also starred in a Bollywood movie ‘Love in Nepal’. But the skimpy outfit and hot scenes in the movie created a huge controversy and she had to defend by saying ‘What’s wrong with exposing if you are blessed with natural beauty?’
After the release of the movie, she claimed that she had also received many more offers in Bollywood. But, she also added that, she had to reject them as all of them were more focused on skin show and showpiece rather than acting in them.

- Kicked out of home – When he couldn’t get into job and won’t earn a living, his father decided to teach him the life lesson and asked him take his family and live on his own.
