Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Nobel laureate, dies at 87

ASSOCIATED PRESS
MEXICO CITY , April 18: Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez crafted intoxicating fiction from the fatalism, fantasy, cruelty and heroics of the world that set his mind churning as a child growing up on Colombia´s Caribbean coast.

One of the most revered and influential writers of his generation, he brought Latin America´s charm and maddening contradictions to life in the minds of millions and became the best-known practitioner of "magical realism," a blending of fantastic elements into portrayals of daily life that made the extraordinary seem almost routine.

    Analysis

    KATHMANDU, April 17
    : The Nepali private sector’s long wait to go around the globe to invest looks likely to be ending soon.
    Divergent views amongst the professional and private sector bodies have helped put a proposed Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy that also has provisions for ‘outward investment by Nepalis’ on ice for about a year.

    However, with a change in leadership at the private sector’s apex umbrella organization -- the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) -- led by its newly elected president Pradeep Jung Pandey, the policy has received a shot in the arm as Pandey has clearly articulated that he favors the policy. “The policy allows Nepalis to show their expertise abroad in their respective sectors and can also bring better payoffs.”   [More]
