Writer Nilam Karki Niharika is awarded the Madan Puraskar of 2075 year for her book titled ‘Yogmaya’. The writer is the writer of another book ‘Chirharan’ which was one of the top 7 books selected for the award last year.
Yogmaya is a historical character who had fight against the Rana ruler of that time. She is considered a saint and an influential female figure of the history of Nepal. That was in the time when women were not considered credible human being and were treated as the property of her husband or father or somebody male.
To honour the effort in the development of children literature for the last five decades, the Jagadamba Shree award was awarded to Shantadas Manandhar.
MadanPuraskar is considered the most prestigious literature award in Nepal, given to outstanding book in the Nepali language published within the Nepali calendar year.
Actor Anmol KC’s much awaited film ‘Captain’ poster says that the match is beginning soon. There is no indication how soon the match begins. The movie features Anmol as a football player. Popular as a lover-boy characters in films, Anmol has been trying to change his image for the last few films.
In the first four films, Anmol was featured in youth love story films. The fifth film was a bit different – featuring his action avatar. For the movie he had prepared himself by pumping his muscles. He had also changed his physical features to suit in the role. Although the film ‘Kri’ got a huge hype, the box-office collection wasn’t as great as expected. That didn’t make the film unsuccessful. So far, all of his films have been successful and have recovered their investment and made profits.

This is the second surprising engagement of Priyanka and Ayushman. The first one was sudden and surprising. They didn’t know about the event. So, the event was held on the day Priyanka was flying to the USA. She postponed her ticket for the event. May be because it was held in such a hurry, both Priyanka and Ayushman were not satisfied. So, they held another engagement – a formal one with a lot of fun filled celebration. The event was held in a 5-star hotel in Kathmandu with the family friends and family.
The journalists were surprised as none were invited to the party. The film industry personalities weren’t invited either. So, it was a personal event with personal friends and families. A video report:
Priyanka wrote this post and shared some of the photos of the engagement. Both Priyanka and Ayushman had shared the same photos:
