        Something to fight for

        Ajay Mishra, Jul 15 2018
        The clouds gathered in the sky, obscuring the sun and washing everything in grey light. He glanced at the darkening sky, gathered his tools and started walking home. He had shivered all night without a quilt to keep warm in the winter air. This is why he had desperately hoped that it would be a sunny day. In the morning, the sunlight had cut through the mist to reveal a bright and beautiful expanse. But before too long, clouds had gathered and blocked the sun, draining everything of its warmth and colours.

        Beyond my bubble

        Baijayabar Pradhan
        I was born and raised in Kathmandu. Over the years, I have been part of its transformation and of its growing urbanisation.

        Heil Oli!

        Guffadi
        You don’t need to give us trains and ships and no, don’t even think about sending Deuba to Mars. Just give us roads without potholes. Give us affordable healthcare and quality education

        A bug’s life

        OBIE SHRESTHA
        The new Ant-Man and the Wasp is in much the same humble, low-key mould as its predecessor—this is a superhero who’s not worrying about the fate of the universe for once, and who’s happy to just crack a few jokes, fight off a few baddies

        In search for justice

        SANDESH GHIMIRE
        In The Girl from Kathmandu, a decade long investigation reveals how Nepali youth are dispensable cogs in the global machinery

        Stand up and be counted

        SANJIT BHAKTA PRADHANANGA
        A teenager in a floral Kimono has been rolling hand-rolled cigarettes in boredom; a man in a knock-off Belgium jersey has been finagling with the overwhelmed, solitary waiter about the beer options. A cloud of smoke hangs heavy over the ceiling, pregnant with expectation.

        The crazy authoritarian doctor

        Guffadi
        I think we are all tired of Dr KC now. Why is only Dr KC worried about the health care system and the quality of medical schools in this great country of ours when the rest of us are happy with the shoddy medical services provided for exorbitant fees and really don’t care if byaparis make billions by opening medical schools and providing substandard education to produce incompetent medical doctors?

        Delhi: A city of two tales

        ASTHA WAGLE
        I do not recall how old I was when I had encountered a giant, black-cover book in my father’s bookshelf titled Delhi: The Emperor’s City. The book, which was full of pictures and descriptions of historical monuments and sites, was perfect for a small child. The pictures of the beautiful forts, havelis, gates and bridges fascinated me.

        Thirteen ways of looking at a city

        PRANAYA SJB RANA
        From the porthole of a moving aircraft, the hills rise languid, undulating like waves on a gently rolling river. Below, in the city, through the stratified squamous smattering of brick and mortar clusters snake asphalt arteries, carrying corpuscles of life.

        A new lease on life

        Jyotsana Simha
        In September 2014, I was diagnosed with left temporal Sub Ependymoma, a low-grade brain tumour. Like all parents, my parents wanted the best possible treatment for me. Overlooking Nepal’s medical institutions, we immediately rushed to India in hopes of a successful treatment. Soon after, I was operated at the All India Institution of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi.
