Non Resident Nepalese Association (NRNA) and Nepal Olympic Committee (NOC) on Sunday reached an agreement as per which the association will be a partner to the Olympic campaign running in Nepal.

At a programme held at the NOC building, NOC Chairman Jivan Ram Shrestha and NRNA Chairman Shesh Ghale signed the agreement.

The NOC will also organize various sporting events on October 11 – the day when NRNA was established, it was said.

The NRNA will provide necessary materials for foreign training and competition for some capable athletes and players, scholarships for players participating in the Asian and Olympic games, and search for donors and multi-national companies for development of sport related infrastructures in Nepal.

NRNA Chairman Ghale said the agreement would help consolidate the relations between the Nepali people and second generation NRNA while adding that the Nepali players failed to gain achievements not due to lack of capability but appropriate training and opportunity.

NOC Chairman Shrestha expressed belief that the country could now bring good results in the international arena in the coming days with the support of NRNA in the campaign to keep the country's head high.

During the programme, NRNA Chairman Ghale was provided Honorary Membership of the NOC.

The man raised his head and looked at them. These are strange nightingales, he thought. I have seen this species of birds but never like them. Then what are they? Nightingales, I’m sure they are not. Perhaps they are the messengers from god, or maybe they are the lost fragments of my past. Or maybe they are just birds, a new species of them. “Whatever,” he whispered to himself and abandoned the thought

When members of the Nepal government decided to finally put forth a new constitution this year, it is highly unlikely that they had anticipated the ocean of Madhesi protests that have come to engulf Terai. One can imagine that the passing of the new constitution was supposed to be something exclusively symbolic—a ribbon of hope pinned to a year of devastation brought forth by the April and May earthquakes.

New power

It seems that we, the people, can’t do anything about the blockade except watch the ping pong match that is happening between our incompetent government and Madhesi-Tharu politicians. Our good-for-nothing clowns have been holding talks to resolve the crisis but it seems that they are only getting together for the free doodh chiya and biskoot. They are not really interested to find ways to compromise and end the ‘black market’ festival.

The untimely coalition

Only when every major force is compelled to become accountable towards the citizens will the government create a conducive environment to resolve the current crisis

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.
