Major parties agree to all-party meet, differ on modality and ToR

Decide to hold talks with CPN-Maoist again on Thursday

KATHMANDU, Sept 2 : The three three major political parties - Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN (Maoist) - and the agitating Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist have agreed in principle to hold an all-party political conference to settle various contentious issues of the new statute although they are yet to agree on the modality and terms of reference (ToR) of such a forum.

During a four-party meeting held at the official residence of Prime Minister Sushil Koirala at Baluwatar Tuesday afternoon, the political parties agreed to meet again Thursday to settle their differences over the modality and ToR of the political conference, as demanded by the CPN-Maoist, which boycotted the Constituent Assembly (CA) election held late last year.

  The day of the Elephant-God  
  BY NITYA PANDEY  
 
Accidents, mishaps and misfortunes can be avoided by worshipping Lord Ganesha before beginning any auspicious activity.

Goddess Parvati, the better half of Lord Shiva, was yearning for a child. One day, while she was taking a bath with turmeric and water, she started rubbing the turmeric off her body. Then she molded the residue thus derived into a human structure. With her powers, she breathed life into the image. Within seconds, a little boy magically appeared before her. She called him her son and commanded him to guard the main gate of her palace. Lord Shiva, who was not home at the moment, returned in the evening. The little boy stopped him from entering his own house. Shiva was so angry with the boy’s audacity that he cut off his head and entered the palace. When Parvati came to know about this, she told her husband that he was her son and pleaded him to bring him back to life. Lord Shiva, softened by his wife’s tears, asked his messengers to bring him a head of any creature to be attached to the dead boy’s body. They searched far and wide and stumbled across an old elephant with a single tooth. They cut off its head and presented it to their lord. Shiva then brought the boy back to life with his powers.

This day, also known as Bhadra Shukla Chaturthi (the fourth day of the waxing moon period), is regarded as the birthday of the little boy brought back from the dead, who went on to be worshipped as Lord Ganesha.
