But did I deserve to die for that seemingly minor fault? May be, may be not, depending upon how you view this entire thing.

Federating Nepal right
Provinces should be delineated vertically along north-south lines. It would be best if we retained the current five development regions. This model has taken into consideration interdependence of Tarai, the Hills and Himalaya. The problem with Panchayat regime was it created these regions with promises of devolution of powers, but never enacted their promises. With judicious decentralization and devolution of powers, these five regions would've served much like federal provinces today.

In Nepal, we are not advancing economically, we are stunted in other arenas like sports, our education and health services are regressing; so it is a full-scale tragedy if we cannot progress even in fields where individual excellence and innovativeness can make up for the apathy and negligence of the state.

The future may not be quite as dark as it has been so far when it comes to arts and literature in Nepal.

Sakshi PaudelSome tips from Hospitality graduate
In college years, manager is a big word for hospitality students; later it becomes heavier. For the first few times, they feel immense pleasure to sign above ‘Manager’s Signature’, but gradually this task becomes heavier because of consequences a signature can brings. They just don’t want to sign anymore. From my experience, there are certain factors in hotels and restaurants which could make the first work experience sophisticated, and therefore pose equal chances of growth or discouragement.
