After Everest tragedy, all expeditions called off

BHANUBHAKTA NIROULA
SOLUKHUMBU, April 20 : After a deadly avalanche killed at least 13 Sherpa guides on the Mount Everest last week, all expedition groups have called off their journeys.

Members of 15 expedition groups, who were in the Everest base camp waiting for weather to improve, on Sunday decided to return, declaring 2014 as a ´black year´ in the history of mountaineering. These groups consist of about 300 mountaineers, their Sherpa guides and high-altitude workers. [More]

  THE MARGINALIZED Dalits embark on challenging journey with hopes in the new constitution  
  BY KAMAL PARIYAR  
 
As the percentage of Dalit representation in the present Constituent Assembly (CA) declined in comparison to their numbers in the first CA, the hopes of the Dalit community has somehow dimmed, with the apprehension that the voice of the deprived community and other disadvantaged groups would be least heard. The community is worried not only for a less inclusive CA compared to the first one but also is considerably depressed with the fear that the achievements made during the first CA would perhaps not be preserved.

In the first CA elections held in 2008, seven candidates from the Dalit communities were elected from all of the 240 constituencies, with altogether 50 Dalit members. But the numbers of Dalit lawmaker in the second CA is only two from direct elections, and the number is down to 41, including through proportional representation.

    KATHMANDU, April 18: Pavitra Gautam is a symbol of enthusiastic youths of today who work hard and always have their eye on what’s next to come. The 26-year-old CEO of Karkhana, an innovative space for learners, has been part of the company in its journey as a product designer and more recently as an educator. The organization’s repertoire of work includes building a laptop, introducing 3D printer in Nepal and encouraging young engineers to go that extra mile.

    Now focused on education, Karkhana provides lessons to school going children of classes seven and eight. “We thought we could provide an added value in the education system. We chose these classes because the students are just developing their critical thinking, creative and collaborative skills. They’re learning how to communicate. With the right environment and motivation, young minds will develop many skills,” he explains.   [More]
