Absence of medical facilities taking toll on wild animals at CNP

CHANDANI HAMAL
CHITWAN, April 20:Over a dozen helpless stray wild animals are rescued from Chitwan National Park (CNP) and other conservation areas across the county annually.

However, lack of the hospitals and scientific treatment facility for such injured and invalid wild animals, which are generally referred to the CNP, they continue to fall prey to their ailment and injuries even after rescue. [More]

  The high &low of it  
  BY SEWA BHATTARAI  
 
It is New Year, and crowds throng the Exhibition Road. Thrill seekers are here by the droves, you can hear them yell from half a mile away, or so it seems. For Bhrikuti Mandap is home to Kathmandu Fun Park, which contains several amusement rides meant for both young and old. With the addition of an amusement and water park at Sanga, it would seem that youngsters in Nepal do not have to pine for Disneyland anymore. But though this nascent industry provides the thrills they desperately seek, it is still struggling to ensure complete safety of its consumers.

Kausar Javed, a teenager who often rides the Columbus and Ferris Wheel at Bhrikuti Mandap, enjoys these rides a lot. But when you ask her about safety, she grimaces. “The seat next to the last has its handles falling off,” says she. “But if you hang on tight, you won’t fall,” she concludes gaily. Forget safety harnesses, rusted handlebars are the norm, and it is not uncommon to find a few damaged bars like the one Kausar pointed out. It is only the cheerful spirit of the consumers that keeps these flaws from becoming lawsuits. It is also not unusual to find riders flinging off the safety bar and hopping down before the ride completely stops.

    KATHMANDU, April 18: Pavitra Gautam is a symbol of enthusiastic youths of today who work hard and always have their eye on what’s next to come. The 26-year-old CEO of Karkhana, an innovative space for learners, has been part of the company in its journey as a product designer and more recently as an educator. The organization’s repertoire of work includes building a laptop, introducing 3D printer in Nepal and encouraging young engineers to go that extra mile.

    Now focused on education, Karkhana provides lessons to school going children of classes seven and eight. “We thought we could provide an added value in the education system. We chose these classes because the students are just developing their critical thinking, creative and collaborative skills. They’re learning how to communicate. With the right environment and motivation, young minds will develop many skills,” he explains.   [More]
