UML to stick to 7-province model

REPUBLICA
´Party still flexible for inter-party consensus´

The federal provinces proposed by the party are Kirat-Limbuwan-Koshi; Tamsaling-Newa-Bagmati; Magarat-Tamuwan-Gandaki; Bheri-Karnali; Seti-Mahakali; Mithila-Bhojpura-Janakpur and Tharuhat-Abadh-Lumbini.

KATHMANDU, Aug 22: Top leaders of CPN-UML have stood for giving continuity to the party´s existing policy of adopting a multiple-identity-based seven province federal model.

The leaders airing their views at the party´s office bearers´ meeting under way for the last couple of days said that they should continue with the same stance while adopting a flexible approach for finding a middle path solution among the major political parties over the issue. [More]

  Reality behind closed doors  
  BY NITYA PANDEY  
 
Barring a handful of exceptions, there are very few people who take in other people’s children with the sole intention of providing a good home and better education for them.

For thirteen years old Pratima Bhujel,* parents and siblings are like faint shadows of a distant past. She was only four years old when she was brought to Kathmandu to work as a domestic help. Every single day for the next nine years, she worked for the same family. During this time, she was never allowed to talk to anybody back home, go to school, eat enough food or take a brief respite from the household chores.

“I was forced to carry huge jars of water from the nearby stone tap. If I failed to wake up at five and get water the first thing in the morning, they would tie me up, push me to the floor and hit me hard,” she says, pointing to the side of her face that used to be covered with cuts and bruises. “I also had to clean the house, wash the clothes and do the dishes for all seven members of the family.”
