Eid al-Fitr: Festival that brings togetherness feeling

SANGEET SANGROULA
KATHMANDU, July 28 : Sabir Alam of Godavari had a quarrel over money with one of his close friends two years ago, and they were no longer on speaking terms.

"We would be physically present together on many occasions but still apart. We turned our faces away whenever we saw each other," recounted the 23-year-old, who owns a meat shop, adding that with all the enstrangement between them, there was no prospect of any reconciliation. [More]

  Staying healthy as you travel  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
Getting rid of motion sickness completely while you are on the move may be difficult.

                           But you can definitely lessen its severity.



When one is out on a travel, away from home and usual eating and sleeping routine, one is under greater risks of falling sick. New food, different environment, water and air, changes in altitude and temperature, and poor accommodation quality pose various risks to travelers’ health.

“Motion sickness, altitude sickness, travelers’ diarrhea, and malaria are some of the most frequently encountered travel-related health problems,” says Dr. Lochan Dhamala, physician at B&B Hospital.

    Docs at Bir stop taking in patients: Director

    KATHMANDU, July 28 : While the administrators at Bir Hospital were on Monday celebrating the 125th anniversary of its founding, resident doctors perusing higher degrees under the National Academy of Medical Sciences (NAMS) were busy changing the name of the hospital on the signboard to ´Sick Hospital´.

    The agitating doctors, who have been staying away from services since Sunday, said that they are compelled to engage in the boycott as the authorities concerned keep turning a deaf ear to their just demands. They said that the hospital itself has been ailing for years now, because of which hundreds of thousands among the poor have been suffering hugely and are compelled to seek the services of private hospitals, which are comparatively far more expensive.   [More]
