In a latest report, actress Mariska Pokharel has married her boyfriend of two years in a private ceremony in Australia. According to reports, Marishka’s boyfriend had been living in Australia for the last 8 years and they were seeing each other for the last 2 years.
The comedy writer, Bhairav Aryal, is the only comedy essayist who is unique and the best literately figure in Nepal so far. But, it has been more than 40 years that we have lost him. Although he made everybody laugh, his life was miserable. It was so miserable that he had been planning to depart from the world for quite some time. He wrote numerous letters to his office, his father, his children and others about his plans. Nobody came to his rescue. May be it was because the medical community and the society wasn’t aware of depression or such mental illness.
It is really sad to loose one of the finest writer in such a young age. I have compiled his letters to present a 10 minute-long video and also read one of his essays in another video. The essay ‘Mapai’ a self-gratifying nature of human being is written in such a beautiful way that, one can’t imagine the writer being miserable.
Watch the video:
On April 28 we lost a Bollywood and Hollywood actor Irrfan Khan – one of the most talented actor of all time. The very next day, on April 29, Bollywood lost another superstar, Rishi Kapoor. That was a double loss to Bollywood film industry.
After the death of Irrfan Khan, Anand Nepal YouTube channel viewers had asked me to do a biography of Irrfan. I wasn’t keen on making one because, I only talk about things related to Nepal and Bollywood is Indian film industry. But, later I found out Irrfan’s Nepal connection and hence decided to do a biography. While going through his social media post, I found:
– He was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in March of 2018
– He went to UK for treatment and went through a-year-long treatment in London.
– He returned back to India in April of 2019.
– Right after returning he did a movie ‘English Medium’. The movie was released in March 2020. Irrfan had talked about the film in his social media. His last post was about the movie.
– On April 27, all of a sudden he fell ill, was rushed to hospital. According to media report, the complication wasn’t related to cancer. He was told to be cancer free.
– He died on April 28, 2020
I made a short biography about Irrfan Khan:
In the course of building this website and making videos in YouTube, I have written somme books for your pleasure. Some of the books are related to the entertainment industry other are about the society and religion. I have taken an enormous amount of effort in preparing the books. For example, to prepare the Hanuman Chalisa book, I had drawn all the pictures of Hanuman (by using some of the computer tools I created myself).
I used the same technology to prepare the sketch of all the Miss Nepal in Nepal. I have recorded all the participants, winners and details of all the Miss Nepal contests in the book titled “History of Miss Nepal”. In addition to the historical significance, I have been updating this book regularly, every year.
Please feel free to comment with your concerns and comments.
The 40 hymns of Hanuman. Hanuman was a monkey, the friend and sub-ordinate of Rama in Ramayan. He could change his appearance as required. He could transform himself to a tiny creature or a giant of extraordinary proportions. He could fly through oceans to reach island kingdom of Sri Lanka. He was so strong that he could carry the whole hill when he couldn’t determine what particular herb to choose form the vast majority of available options. It is fun to know the facts about such an extraordinary mythical monkey.
Here are the first women in Nepali in the entertainment industry – in entertainment industries including film industry & fashion industry.
I should also do similar firsts in sports and media in coming days. Please comment if you know of such information.
First Actress of Nepal – Bhuwan Chand
The first movie featuring a female actress was ‘Aama’ and the first lead actress of the Nepali film industry Bhuwan Chand debuted in the movie. Being an actress in movies was not a reputable profession at that time. The movie was a Nepal government initiation and was made by the technicians from India.
This is an update to a post originally posted on Jan 29, 2012. A new/updated version was posted 2 years ago on Dec 6, 2016. This updated version includes the recent divorces including that of Manoj Gajurel, Reema Bishowkarma, Milan Amatya, Arunima Lamsal and Neelam Dhungana.
It is not only in the Nepali movie industry, divorce among Nepali couple has been in the increasing trend these days. This might be because, compromising is not in the cards of today’s youth. I think, there is nothing wrong to get out of the relationship that is not working out. But, divorce also brings a lot of pain and problems to the both the couple involved. The traditional Nepali society has made it even worse by tagging them ‘bad example’ to the society.
Usha Khadgi Divorce confirmed

On Mangsir 28, 2076, there was a car crash near the Budhanilakantha Municipality-5, Buspark. The driver and the passengers of the car were drunk. A pedestrian of Gorkha, Leela Devkota, was the victim of the accident.
The driver, Prithivi Malla and the passengers were Karish Maskey and Alina Thapa. The name of the fourth passenger was not revealed. Now, actress Paramita RL Rana has admitted that she was the fourth passenger in the car. People in social media had told that she was the fourth passenger but she kept her silence till now.
Now, she has admitted that she was also in the car with the license plate BA 14 Cha 6123. Writing a long statement in Facebook, Paramita has told that she is sorry for the incident. Here is the full statement:
After reports of divorce of Ram Krishna Dhakal and Neelam Shah Dhakal, both of them have written online statements about the incident:
I, Neelam R. Shah would like to make a public statement about all the rumors going around.We have been happily married for over a decade now and will continue to be married for a very long time. We are a small but a happy family and we would really appreciate it if the media and individuals stopped attacking our family constantly.
We are constantly being harassed by the media all across social media and all news outlets and this fire is fueled by the hateful individuals and their comments. The audacity of such people to speak of my family, my family’s reputation, mental health and well-being is beyond cruelty. I see these people as opportunists who continually try to ruin a good family and their good name by connecting them with individuals that could never happen!
I understand we live in a society where everything seems to be everyone’s business but it is not. These are instances that you would not want your family to be involved in, talked about, so why do it to others? These are baseless, emotionless and completely ridiculous lies being spread by people who are not our family’s well-wishers.
This is harassment, mental abuse; cyber bullying and I will continue to defend my family.

It has been 25 years since the first Miss Nepal beauty contest was held in Nepal. After the first Miss Nepal was crowned in 1994 there had been various occasions in which the public had expressed their dissatisfaction on the choice of the judges. In most of the contests, there are always controversies because choosing a beauty contest winner is not a straight forward as choosing between black and white.
Here are the list of controversies Miss Nepal had went through in the history:
Miss Nepal 1997
The first controversy of Miss Nepal was in the third edition of the contest. The contest was originally organized by Kathmandu Jaycees. The people behind the contest were Gopal Kakshapati and the team. By the time of the third contest, the team was out of the organization and they decided to organize their own version of the beauty contest. For that Gopal and the team registered a company The Hidden Treasure and acquired the Miss World franchise. The winner of the contest was going to Miss World beauty contest. The original Miss World used to send the winner to Philippines based contest, Miss Asia Pacific International.
Miss Nepal has reached the Miss World 2019 venue – London, UK. She has already started her journey by receiving the batch of Nepal. She is placed in Green group.
The first major event in the contest will be Head to Head challenge competition. Anushka has participated in a draw to choose her group in the competition. The contestants in her H2H group are:
- Miss Mexico – Ashley Alvídrez
- Miss Nepal – Anushka Shrestha
- Miss Gibraltar – Celine Bolaños
- Miss Tanzania – Sylvia Sebastian
- Miss Cayman Islands – Jaci Patrick
- Miss Poland – Milena Sadowska
Last year, Miss Mexico had won the Miss World title. Although they are different people, the reigning Miss World should have trained the new one to excel in all the competitions held in the competition.
Actress Pooja Sharma has shared photos of herself meeting the ex-king and ex-princess Himani Shah. In instagram she has shared photos and her thoughts on the meeting.
Himani and Pooja both look beautiful in the following post shared by Pooja Sharma.
Miss Nepal Anushka Shrestha has prepared an attractive video to introduce herself in the Miss World 2019 competition. In the competition to be held on December 14, Anushka will represent Nepal.
The video has received positive response from viewers. I have made a video report on the video:
Anushka met with the prime minister, KP Sharma Oli and wrote:
This morning I had the honor of meeting Prime Minister of our country, KP Sharma Oli. What a confident, humble, learned individual! Had the opportunity to get blessings and talk about putting up a stellar national representation at the Miss World stage this year as well!
It is humbling to see our national leaders take time to share their words of wisdom. Thankyou very much Gauree aunti for making this happen💙
Absolutely charged with positive energy and drive to raise the flag of Nepal high as I leave for MW 2019 in 10 days!
I am sharing a the thoughts of a girl I found in Instagram. Nrivana Bhandary says:
I was born a very fair girl in Kathmandu, and I remember how my mother would be showered with compliments about how gori, and thus beautiful I was. The fair & lovely fairy.
Was I privileged because of this, even as a child? Probably, but it was invisible to me because a privileged person does not know they are privileged until they hear the stories of the oppressed. And I did not hear these stories.
In the 90s we hadn’t yet found the vocabulary to describe the discrimination dark-skinned South Asians face compared to lighter-skinned South Asians. Now we call this colourism.
Under the influence of an upbringing in the west I learned that being tan was the epitome of cool and came to value it. I too started laying on the beach for hours on end in my tiniest bikini.
I think that the western mentality regarding tans is on the right track in some ways. South-Asians shun the sun like they are vampires. They stay indoors as much as possible because they are scared that the evil sun will mar their beauty, make them dark and unattractive. But to be outdoors enjoying nature, being kissed by the sun, is undoubtably one of the most pleasurable experiences in life. Why deny oneself that?

There is a report that the marriage between Usha Khadgi and GP Timalsena is at the verge of breaking. According to a weekly magazine, ‘Shukrabar’ the couple are preparing to separate. The parents of two kids, are deciding on how to divide the property. The options are to divide into two parts or to divide into four equal parts (to each members of the family).
According to report, neither GP nor Usha has responded to the request of the information. Although they admitted in misunderstanding, they both have denied divorce preparation. GP Timalsena has asked not to contact him on this regard. He has written: “Dear all, please don’t query anything regarding our rumours going on, I am not interested. Thank you.”
