Sunkoshi tragedy exposes dark side of Nepal's first literate district

OM ASTHA RAI
SINDHUPALCHOWK, Sept 2: A man limped toward a makeshift camp set up by the Nepal Army (NA) to distribute relief packages to the victims of recent Sunkoshi landslide. The man, who identified himself as Mangal Tamang from Ramche VDC-5 of Sindhupalchowk district, held a card out of his shirt´s pocket and slung it over his neck, just before he entered into the camp.

It was the first evening of September and the sun was about to set in just half an hour. But, the camp was still teeming with people desperate to grab a few kilos of food grains, which NA personnel have been distributing to the landslide victims for almost a month now. [More]

  Clothes, cuts, and designs

Can you cut this saree and make it into a dress?” a customer enters the room, asking.

“This is simply too beautiful to cut. How often do we get such materials nowadays? Why don’t you have a dress made out of different material,” Amika Shrestha, designer and the owner of Amika’s Attraction, a boutique at Naxal, replies. Amika then pulls out a pen and paper and quickly draws a flowing dress design for her visitor. As her hands work on the design, it seems as though everything comes to her naturally and designs automatically take on incredible shapes.
