Avalanche exacts toll in personal tragedies

KAMAL PARIYAR
Kin of deceased left high and dry

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]

  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.

  • The Winter Soldier Take the Lead
    PRAGYAN THAPA
    Film review

    KATHMANDU, April 18:
    The Marvel World never looked this good. From crisp VFX to a cohesively structured story, The Winter Soldier combines thematic brilliance with top quality visuals. The first Captain America movie may have introduced a template super-hero, but this installment puts Captain America into a proper resilience test. Here, we get a closer picture of both Steve Rogers and his responsibilities as the dedicated super-soldier Captain America – a patriotic figure always on duty.

    More than just saving the world from an evil master-mind of a villain, The Winter Soldier serves a politically contextual stand on present day issues like unethical use of surveillance technology and the much anticipated debate on government secrets and the people’s right to information. Above all the chaos, Captain America is a metaphor for the endangered humanistic virtues of honesty and brotherhood. A reason why Captain appears more approachable than rest of the Avengers is that he thinks with a naïve but a truly justifiable standpoint. He’s the old-school definition of an ideal gentleman.   [More]
