Avalanche exacts toll in personal tragedies

KAMAL PARIYAR
KATHMADNU, April 19 As soon as the four mortuary vans carrying the bodies of dead climbers entered the premises of the Sherpa Service Center at Sherpa Gumba, Bouddha, the pall of silence burst into loud cries.

The bodies of climbers who were among the 13 killed in the avalanche near Everest Base Camp on Friday morning were handed over to kin after being airlifted to Kathmandu on Saturday. Soon after the post mortems carried out at TU Teaching Hospital, Maharajgunj, the bodies were delivered to the grieving families. [More]

    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]
