Annapurna post, the only Nepali website that can't be read

UPDATE: After the publication of this post, the webmaster of seem to have corrected the problem and the website can now be read.

When every other websites can be read, the only Nepali website that can’t be read in popular browser, Firefox, is Annapurna post’s website.

Yesterday, the executive editor of Annapurna Post daily, Guna Raj Luitel, while explaining the reason for price hike told that, there are not many Nepali people with access to internet. But, even those who have access – haven’t been able to read the website since it came into existence. When I complained, I was suggested to use Internet Explorer.

I had no interest in it’s content so, I had never tried to open in it’s recommended browser, Internet Explorer.

Today I decided to try it in IE, and the result was surprising -the output was the same with only thicker letters. The output looks like below:

If I were to believe in conspiracy theories, it seems they have largely neglected website not to decrease it’s paper readership.

In the age of Unicode, Annapurna remains the only website that can’t be read in popular browsers. It’s one more reason for the readers to dump Annapurna Post in the wake of recent 100 percent increase in paper version of top three newspapers.

Please tell us, in comment, if you can read the website in your computer.

Miss Nepal Cake in Annapurna for Christmas

Yesterday, Sahana Bajracharya, in her Facebook profile, announced via a mobile device that she was “Cake mixing at Annapurna ;)”

That didn’t make sense to me at that time until I saw the following photo in Nagarik:

These Miss Nepal beauties are mixing cake ingredients to prepare a cake for upcoming Christmas. It’s not December yet but, Miss Nepal cake is almost ready. Mixed by the top beauties of Nepal including Miss Nepal 2011, Malina Joshi, Miss Nepal 2010, Sadichha Shrestha, and Miss Nepal 2010 runner-up Sahana Bajracharya have already initiated a grand welcome cake for the international festival. Salina Maskey had helped them to mix dry fruits, wine and various other ingredients. (photo credits Nagarik)

It is told that the cake will be offered for sale by mid December in Hotel Annapurna.
