  Learning from backstreets  
  BY ROSHANI DHAMALA  
 
Kedar Dhanuki, a wood craftsman, flips his hands dexterously over a wooden block, and draws, designs and carves a beautiful wooden mask in just under two hours. People huddle around to watch him at work in his small shop at Thamel. When tourists come to buy masks, Kedar (teaching mask carving to learners in the photos above) instead of showing them the different kinds of masks that dot the walls says, “Make one yourself and take it home with you.”

Besides carving masks, Kedar also teaches the art of mask carving to tourists who are keen to learn it, as one of many course packages offered by Backstreet Academy to teach the tourists about Nepali traditional craft.

    Film review

    KATHMANDU, April 18:
    The Marvel World never looked this good. From crisp VFX to a cohesively structured story, The Winter Soldier combines thematic brilliance with top quality visuals. The first Captain America movie may have introduced a template super-hero, but this installment puts Captain America into a proper resilience test. Here, we get a closer picture of both Steve Rogers and his responsibilities as the dedicated super-soldier Captain America – a patriotic figure always on duty.

    More than just saving the world from an evil master-mind of a villain, The Winter Soldier serves a politically contextual stand on present day issues like unethical use of surveillance technology and the much anticipated debate on government secrets and the people’s right to information. Above all the chaos, Captain America is a metaphor for the endangered humanistic virtues of honesty and brotherhood. A reason why Captain appears more approachable than rest of the Avengers is that he thinks with a naïve but a truly justifiable standpoint. He’s the old-school definition of an ideal gentleman.   [More]
