Everest avalanche a reminder of risks Sherpas face

ASSOCIATED PRESS
KATHMANDU, April 20: The rescuers moved quickly, minutes after the first block of ice tore loose from Mount Everest and started an avalanche that roared down the mountain, ripping through teams of guides hauling gear.

But they couldn´t get there quickly enough. No one can move that fast. Not even the people who have spent their lives in Everest´s shadow, and who have spent years working on the world´s highest peak. [More]

  MICRO YATRA Women's empowerment!  
  BY SOMESH VERMA  
 
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end,” so said Ernest Hemingway. The great man said it only to get us mortals under pressure. Right from the moment yours truly read it (sometime in his teens), he´s been hit by this ´journey´ bug. As if every step you take has to conform to the statement made by the man who wrote ´The Old Man and the Sea´ (It´s a different matter that during our college days, we used to find titles like ´The Old Man and the She´ more appealing).

Yet the line touched a chord, somewhere… And ever since the microbuses hit (yes, they literally hit!) the Kathmandu roads, yours truly started relating microyatras to ´journey´. The journeys have rarely been soul-searching, except for a few times when your fellow passengers were breathing down your
neck, yet they have been reflective of what stage of development our society is at.

    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]
