ram: did you ask how much dowry the bridge’s parents have paid? that would have been a more interesting story that this.
Monica Upadhyay: Lovely pictures and nice captions to capture the varied colours of the fabulous far-west. Thank you so much for the photo-essay and today’s article on rocket stoves. It inspires us to keep on finding context-specific solutions to meet the development challenges of the people from the ‘once-remote’ far-western region.
Bhavna: The Far-West has indeed changed (and is changing). It is important for the Nepali media to now tell the people that West/Far-West is not what is used to be. For sure, its not yet as developed as other regions but while visiting these areas, one wonders why there are only stories of remorse. I wish to read another ’story of hope’ about your visit to the Far-West.
Guy Dekelver: Thanks for sharing this one Kunda and a great story of hope. That is also what I take home from my visit to the region. Smiling faces, motivated households and cookstove entrepreneurs.
Maya: Wow, this sounds like a transnational version of Nepal Unites. What’s next? Safari-hunting to end hunger in the Third World? Or maybe roller-skating to stop torture in prisons? Talk about cheapening other people’s tragedies.

rahul: Excellent! join one of the English dailies in Nepal and please improve the quality, it seems you are the only person who can save English journalism in Nepal…
dinesh: Ha! another arm-chair journalist’s rant. go on bro…keep shouting
Arpan Shrestha: Nepali Journalism is largely Churnalism – press release lifts, badly reported event news & ass licking favors. Irony, that Nepal’s newspapers spread rumors rather than replacing them. Largely, the content of Nepali media offends the majority class & doesn’t come an inch close to representing the voices of the oppressed. It’s sad that journalists who can’t represent themselves have the burden to represent the voice of a nation. Bhutro Journalism! Churnalists.
Amy: Great article from an interesting perspective!
foreigner: entertaining for the begin but frustrating after some accidents. Wrong movment as a pedestrian on the footwalk and you run over by a crazy biker or just dumped on your bicycle in the gutter by a bus or lorry, it is the law of the bullies
akash shrestha: i am sick of the media using the phrase “illegally built houses.” Has any paper or TV ever conducted a research on when these houses were built? here’s a case…my great grand father built a house in 1975 BS. the house still stands. the problem is, in 2033 BS, there came a new thing about wider roads. now the question is, does it make the house built 58 years before the new ‘maapdanda’ an illegal one? how can a thing like media be so ignorant? you people have readers and regular followers. your publishing such bogus claims positions a group of people as frauds among some other groups of people that go solely by what you publish. grow up people, there’s no such thing as free lunch. someone else is always paying for something good...
