11-year-old raped, paid Rs 50 to stay mum

SHREEJANA SHRESTHA
KATHMANDU, August 27: The floral top complimented her dusky look but her messy pony tail hinted that Maya (name changed) was not feeling at ease. She kept nervously rolling her side curls.

  Nepali stage Yesterday today and tomorrow  
  BY ASHISH DHAKAL  
 
In his 2008 book ‘Theatre for Transformation’, Ghimire Yubaraj, a famous theatre artist for 15 years now, states that every theatre in the world has its root in culture. “Every ancient theatre started as a form of honoring the Gods,” he says.

According to him, theatre in Nepal is believed to have started around 2400 years ago in a similar manner to worship the Gods, and the earliest recorded performance was the Harisiddhi dance. “Earlier on, dances were theatre performances,” he adds. “In Nepal, even during the 1980’s, musicals with songs and dances inspired by Hindi films were staged as theatre performances.”
