A new revelation in the relationship between actress Jiya KC and Bhuwan KC – Bhuwan is seen embracing Jiya in a Holi 2017 photo. In the photo shared by Jiya KC, it is quite apparent that the couple had applied Holi colours in privacy to each other, before participating in the group celebration.
Analysis of the holi colours on Bhuwan KC and Jiya KC:
Bhuwan has neatly applied purple colour on Jiya KC’s nose and cheek. Red and green colours are applied on her forehead. Jiya has applied red colour on Bhuwan’s forehead and nose, purple on his left cheek and on his nose, green on his right cheek and nose. They have neatly and strategically applied the colours on each other. Jiya has taken much care to apply it in symmetry where as, colour on Jiya seem to have been applied in a little rough manner. They booth look happy. May be because of photo filter, Bhuwan KC looks very young to his actual age of more than 50 years.

Home Minister commits to remove fake landless squatters from river banks
Mar 1, 2012 @ 18:31
In a discussion programme organized by the High Level Bagmati Civilization Integrated Development Committee on Wednesday, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Bijay Kumar Gachhadar expressed his commitment to remove the fake landless squatters residing along the river banks in the Kathmandu Valley.
Home Minister Gachhadar questioned how people can be called landless squatters when they are living encroaching public land by constructing RCC buildings.
According to RSS, he said he had requested top leaders of the big three parties frequently for their support. He further said to remove fake landless squatters at any expense, and warned he will rather settle other people in Tundikhel, if they did not support him for the same.
Similarly, Minister for Physical Planning and Works Hyridayesh Tripathi said that the government was committed to conserve the river banks in the Kathmandu Valley.
Earlier in January, the Ministry of Physical Planning and Works had tasked the Department of Urban Development and Building Construction (DUDBC) with registering the squatters to identify real landless squatters.
Only 12 percent of the around 8,000 people living on the river banks filed applications for registering themselves as squatters.
According to the study of the government, more than 1,500 ropanis (76.3 hectares) of land have been encroached by the squatters on the banks of Bagmati, Bishnumati, Manohara and Dhobikhola rivers in the valley.
