      In search of a saviour

      The festival of lights is over and we all have no choice but to face the darkness that hovers around us. Our government banned firecrackers and imposed a 10 pm curfew even during the festive season but such laws didn’t apply to dohoris and dance bars that operated past midnight, disturbing neighbourhoods.

      Madhukar Sjb Rana
      Let’s start with the basics: By ‘world order’, Henry Kissinger, in his book, World Order: Character of Nations and the Course of History, means “the concept held by a region or civilisation about the nature of just arrangement and distribution of power thought to be applicable in the entire world.

      Creating Nepal’s own Quartet

      John Narayan Parajuli
      The current conflict between the state and Madhes, the polarisation of the society between Madhesi and Pahadi communities has put a spotlight on the absence of a national conflict resolution mechanism.

      Traders in the Land of Snows

      Kamal Ratna Tuladhar
      The old Tibet trade is a celebrated period in Nepal’s history when commercial and cultural exchanges across the high Himalaya reached exalted heights. For over a thousand years, generations of merchants of Kathmandu have journeyed across the frozen passes in great mule caravans to conduct business in Lhasa and other trade centres in the Land of Snows.

      Gaurav Pote
      As the 10th edition of Film Southasia (FSA) chugs ahead in full swing, documentary makers and enthusiasts are eager to celebrate and share the art of storytelling that documentaries are. But they have the rest—those new to the genre or non-inclined towards non-fiction films—wondering just what is it about these films that draws people to them.

      Double-O disappointment

      Preena Shrestha
      Bond is back, but looking a little worse for wear. Having notched up twenty-something films so far, divided into around half a dozen reboots, the franchise based on the novels of the late Ian Fleming has been chugging along dependably for more than 50 years, proving the most enduring film series of its kind.

      Nepal’s road to rap

      You might not know it, but Nepal is in its golden age of hip-hop. More artists than ever before are heading to the studio, to Youtube, and to the battle arena to create and showcase their skills.

      Cobbling from dreams

      Pratibha Tuladhar
      Binod (Bhim) Shakya, a repousse artist, abandons his hammer and chisel and goes to sleep on the floor, propping his head against a wooden block when he can’t make sense of work. The 41-year-old artist says it’s his thing to do when he becomes muddled in his head and doesn’t know how to proceed.

      A coterie of unequals

      So far, we have had a Madhesi and a woman President. But these efforts amount to little when it comes to addressing issues surrounding poverty and rectifying the asymmetrical distribution of power in our country.You just have to look at the student statistics of elite American universities to see it. The US lags behind Nepal, a country with a historically lopsided wealth-distribution system, in the GINI index (the former scores .41 as opposed to the latter’s .328), which measures a country’s economic inequality, but some of the best institutions in the US, which are meant to nurture and support the best and brightest minds in the world, give an opposite impression.
