Nepal Republic Media has completed five years since its inception. We, on this occasion, thank all our valued readers, advertisers, distributors and all other well-wishers, who have extended tremendous support to this publications house in reaching this stage.

All the publications and products of Nepal Republic Media — Republica, Nagarik, Shukrabar, myrepublica.com and nagariknews.com — have set ensuring the citizens’ right to information and the interests of the general public as their top priority. It is our firm conviction that the more a media organization identifies with the people in their joys as well as their sorrows the more popular it can become. With an overwhelmingly increasing number of readers favoring our publications, we feel further inspired to cover more areas of interest and concern to the general public, and with additional vigor.

MoHP proposes higher doc fees

KATHMANDU, April 23 : Barring some exceptions, consultant doctors at Norvic International Hospital charge Rs 350 from each patient they see. However, under a new proposal prepared by the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP), doctors will be able to charge up to Rs 400 per patient.

Norvic is considered one of the most expensive private hospitals in the country, and the hospital administration said its general out-patient department service fee is Rs 350. [More]

First Person, Present Continuous Tense

First, an advertisement for myself – and no apology to Norman Mailer for his essay collection, ‘Advertisements for Myself’ – for my own reasons.

The fact: I’ve finished writing a novel. For five years, I’ve been at its craft and creativity. But it began as a long-form short story of 11,000+ words. I wrote it and let it gestate in my folder. Then the grapevine of Ajit Baral and Shushma Joshi messaged that they were looking for short stories from Nepali writers writing in English (NWWIE) for an anthology commissioned by Rupa of India. ‘Do you have any?’ they asked. ‘I sure have,’ I said, and emailed my masterpiece to these consulting editors. ‘Oho, Peter Dai!’ Ajit wrote back: ‘It’s too long!’ ‘How short do you want?’ ‘Cut it in half.’ So I trimmed the original to some 5,500 words, and the bonsai version was published in “New Nepal: New Voices.” My short story is called ‘Dark Kathmandu Sideways.’
