A Teacup in a Storm: On Public Spitting and Nepali Belly

By Anand GurungI was walking hurriedly in Jawalakhel the other day, my eyes wandering to locate an office where I had a meeting, when my attention was briefly drawn to the Headquarters of British Gurkhas Nepal (BGN).

A day in Bal Mandir

By Anand GurungSometimes even charity can seem so ugly, especially when it is done out of a feeling of pity instead of real affection. It was International Women's Day, and Nepal Beautician's Association had organised a programme for the children of Bal Mandir orphanage at the banquet Hall of the old palace it is housed in, at Naxal. Mostly little boys and girls aged between 5 to 10 years had gathered in the hall enthusiastic about the function, as any children of their age would be.They were…See More

CAVES OF CHOBHAR

There was a festival at the temple on top of Chobhar hill, and from the road below hordes of devotees could be seen making their way up to it. The day was clear and sunny, and one could look at a part of Kathmandu ’s sprawl with a glimpse of snowy peaks beyond the hills. The winter sun was mild and the breeze from the north stirred the leaves of trees and grasses. Cars, motorbikes, vans and buses had been parked at the roadside.On the big ground at the base of the hill, a stage had been set,…See More

It’s like any other day for the staffers at the Tiger Tops Jungle Lodge deep inside the lush sub-tropical forest of Chitwan National Park: A big wild male elephant ventures close to the front lawns of the lodge that open into the forest in the late afternoon and the guests immediately come out of the dining hall with their cameras to take a closer shot. A herd of spotted deer comes strolling through the grassland and disappears into the dark lushness of the forest beyond it, before anybody…See More
