      One dog at a time

      Laxmi Prasad Ngakhusi
      The streets of Kathmandu—the city millions call home—are almost always full of life. Around every corner, amid every galli, you will find people from all walks of life. But these gallis are not just home to puny humans. These gallis are also home to a pack of a different kind—your ever-present friendly neighbourhood dogs.

Our national top comedian, Konfused Pampered Oli does not want to resign even when he knows that he does not have the numbers to continue to lead the government. After all, a week more and you can dole out millions of rupees from the state treasury to you near and dear ones with utter disregard for the law. And you can transfer your chamchas to lucrative postings before the other guys show up and do their thing.

      Guilty pleasures

      If you’ve seen this video before, the title of this article alone may leave you groaning. But if it triggers nothing, allow yourself to take a stroll down low brow meme memory lane.
