It has been a decade since Malina Joshi was crowned Miss Nepal. Here is the historical details of the winner of Lux Hidden Treasure Miss Nepal 2011, was Malina Joshi. The information about Malina, during the participation in the contest, was published in The Himalayan Times in 2011.

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:
