Two bullet-proof vehicles arrive in Kathmandu for Modi

REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, July 31: Two bullet proof vehicles have arrived in Kathmandu on Thursday in view of the government´s preparations to provide a foolproof Z-plus security to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is scheduled to arrive here on a two-day official visit on Sunday.

The vehicles along with a frequency controller vehicle were transported to Kathmandu from New Delhi by Indian Air Force cargo aircraft Thursday morning. The two vehicles will be used for Modi to travel in Kathmandu. The frequency controller vehicle disrupts mobile phone signals in the vicinity of the VVIP convoy. So talking on mobile phones will not be possible in the area. [More]

  Stripes, dots, and everything in between  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
Looking into your wardrobe to see how you can dress your best for the day? Plain clothes are a little too bland, and rows and rows of patterns stare at you, waiting to be chosen. Will it be the strips today, or will it be the delicate polka dots? Will it be the dress with a huge face that is the latest trend, or will it be the reliable old floral print top?

The Week consulted with versatile designer and fashion stylist Neelima Sharma to guide you to the mind-boggling varieties of patterns and prints out there.

  • NOC dispute takes new turn following SC ruling
    REPUBLICA
    KATHMANDU, July 31: While the dispute between National Sports Council (NSC) member secretary Yubraj Lama and Minister of Youths and Sports (MoYS) Purushottam Paudel eventually appear to have been resolved, a fresh dispute has emerged regarding the legitimacy of two separate Nepal Olympic Committees (NOCs).

    Sending its second letter to NSC, the verdict enforcement directorate of the Supreme Court (SC) has ordered the sports governing body to implement its decision. SC on July 2010 had given recognition to Rukma Sumsher Rana-led NOC. The other NOC was led by Dhruba Bahadur Pradhan and is recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). NOC-led by Pradhan has officially been entrusted with making preparations for participation in the Asian Games as well.   [More]
