UML Central Committee meet postponed by five days

REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, April 18: The Central Committee meeting of CPN-UML has been deferred for five days as the Chairman Jhalanath Khanal failed to submit his political document in the meeting for discussion on Friday.

The Document Drafting Committee had entrusted Chairman Khanal and General Secretary Ishwor Pokharel with the responsibility to prepare the political paper for the discussion in the CC meeting. The next meeting of CC is scheduled for April 23.

CC was scheduled to discuss the chairman’s political document, which is to be submitted in upcoming 9th General Convention of the Party slated for June 7.

  Learning from backstreets  
  BY ROSHANI DHAMALA  
 
Kedar Dhanuki, a wood craftsman, flips his hands dexterously over a wooden block, and draws, designs and carves a beautiful wooden mask in just under two hours. People huddle around to watch him at work in his small shop at Thamel. When tourists come to buy masks, Kedar (teaching mask carving to learners in the photos above) instead of showing them the different kinds of masks that dot the walls says, “Make one yourself and take it home with you.”

Besides carving masks, Kedar also teaches the art of mask carving to tourists who are keen to learn it, as one of many course packages offered by Backstreet Academy to teach the tourists about Nepali traditional craft.
