Babiyo Rope Making: New Beginnings
Lex Limbu
On a recent visit to Babiyo Grass-Rope Making Enterprise in Bankasbasa, Kapilvastu, I not only saw but also heard from those who have been positively affected by the enterprise.

The locals living along the highway have seen many changes in the past 15 years. From being involved in the construction of the highway that runs through the jungle to being the community affected by the armed conflict, the community lived in constant fear as they became sandwiched between the armed forces and the Maoists cadres.

How Sane Are We?
Shraddha Shrestha
A couple of days back, I saw photos of people getting across the road while stepping on the flowers planted on the road islands, and dogs using the Zebra Crossing! Before giving out a hilarious laugh, my mind immediately went back to what my teacher had said last fall, “Westerners/ Europeans consider us Nepalis ‘Third World People’ not because we’re poor or we don’t have a Constitution, it’s because they have a strong culture of implementing their civic sense, and we don’t. It’s this difference that makes them consider themselves superior to us. And it’s this difference we’re supposed to erase.”

I began thinking again about our ‘sanity’ in this regard? Don’t we Nepalis really know anything about Civic Sense, or do we pretend not to know about it? Or do we know it but aren’t entirely motivated to abide by it? From overflowing garbage bins and drains, spit marks on the street, public defecation, road rage, undisciplined traffic, vulgar graffiti on walls, unnecessary honking of vehicles – these have become parts and parcels of our normal day.
What Does Development Mean To You?
Abishek Lamsal, 19
Development means progressive changes in any aspect. The definition of development should not only be confined in establishing industries, constructing buildings and roads. Because it’s a way of life, it means to be better than in the past and to establish timely values and proper reforms.
