Big 3 to talk to CPN-Maoist today

REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, Sept 1: Leaders from major political parties have decided to talk to the Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist on Tuesday with a view to include their views in the new constitution.

The decision was taken at a meeting among the leaders held at the chamber of Baburam Bhattarai, who heads the Constitutional Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee (CPDCC) of the Constituent Assembly (CA) at Singha Durbar on Monday. UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, CPN-UML´s senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, Nepali Congress (NC) General Secretary Krishna Sitaula and UML´s Bishnu Paudel, among other leaders, were present at the meeting.

  The Uninvited  
  BY RICHA BHATTARAI  
 
In the feeble moonlight I see that the red of the dreams is now on my fingers.

Fifteen years of the same thing happening month after month. I should be better prepared for it by now, and yet it delights in surprising me whenever it can. Possibly every month, if it had its way. The thing that is called a ‘period,’ and it tries hard to insert a comma into life.

Imagine this. The whole day I have been irritable and tetchy. I want to eat three croissants and a packetful of mushy titaura and then a jumbo pack of chips. My stomach is about to burst, and I still feel hungry. I have gotten into an argument with my best friend and snapped twice at a colleague about inconsequential matters. I feel sad and nervous and edgy, like something bad is about to happen. Finally, I give up trying to work or think or even read and crawl underneath my blankets. A beautiful dream awaits me, of lush green pasturelands and bright blue skies. There is even a rivulet with an arched bridge – how romantic! And suddenly, the rivulet turns red. It flows not in my dream but between my legs. My eyelids turn into lead. They refuse to look, the logic is that the river will dry up if I just turn over and go back to sleep.
