KATHMANDU, Jan 12: The Shree Swasthani Brata Katha, a popular ritual observed by the Hindus since Push Shuklapurnima (full moon day), is beginning from today. The festival ends a month after in Magh Shuklapurnima.
CHITWAN, Jan 12: On Wednesday afternoon, after seven hours of boating from Sikhrauli to Amaltari of Nawalparasi district, I chanced upon an enchanting view of colorful and beautiful birds along the Narayani River in Chitwan National Park (CNP). The Park is indeed a paradise for bird lovers as exotic birds from all over Asia visit it. But, not many tourists take this route.
