KATHMANDU, May 17: Standing up against the age-old traditions and norms of the society has never been easy. The advent of inter-caste marriages, however not readily, has slowly seen acceptance in our society that is slowly evolving and embracing the phenomena of modernization.
Five young people speak on the issue of inter-caste marriages. Pramithas Dhakal and Shiva Bhusal are both computer engineering students at Pulchowk Campus, Mangal Laxmi Prajapati is studying Bachelors in Business Studies at Unique College, Anita Shrestha is in her 12th year at Jana Adarsha College while Kabita Gautam is social media campaigner.
KATHMANDU, May 17: The summer tans, the ice creams, the burning heat, the savoring of brief summer breeze; the hot season is here. How does summer make you feel, apart from hot and sweaty? What are your plans to beat off the heat in the capital?
Sachin Tripathi says, on our Facebook page, that summer makes him lazy. Bharat Gurung bluntly expresses his dislike of the season.
KATHMANDU, May 17: For those not familiar with the legendary Star Trek movies, the most recent offering from the franchise ‘Star Trek into Darkness’ should still be moderately interesting. It is basically about a group of trained explorers hunting for a highly sophisticated human machine in the outer space in sophisticated spaceships.
The film follows Captain Kirk and his crew, including Spock (Zachary Quinto), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Bones (Karl Urban), and Sulu (John Cho) in their explorations and the subsequent adventure in space.
KATHMANDU, May 17: Twins Arjun and Vishal (Arjun Kapoor) are separated during their childhood and while Arjun is brought up by his rich business tycoon father, Yashvardan (Jackie Shroff). Vishal, who grows up with his mother, was considered dead in an encounter years ago. But secrets come out and the twins cross path again when they are used by a family of police officers, to bring down Yashvardan, who’s a disguised gangster conducting illegal operations masked by his legal businesses.
Rishi Kapoor plays a power hungry cop who can go to extremes to have his share of power. Arjun Kapoor puts up a good act in both the roles while Shroff’s character is under emphasized in the movie. As far as acting goes, Sashaa Agha, who plays Ritu, is disappointing perhaps because of the insufficiently developed plots surrounding her.
