Personally speaking, I’m not a fan of thrillers. Someone on a killing rampage, people being hunted down and explicit violence and chaos make me feel a little too nihilistic. Also, the whole blood and gore and hide and seek routine that make up most thrillers fail to impress me. But now, I can say that there is one exception. And that is Bong Joon-ho’s 2003 crime drama Memories of Murder.

All of us know have this idea of a perfect place where we would like to live someday. For some, that place might be in laps of the mountains in Switzerland and for others, it could be by the sea in Pondicherry. We all have our reasons for wanting to live where we want to. It could be the cultural influence of the place, the food it is famous for, or simply the fact that we like what we have seen in photos.

If you think Kathmandu is dirty, you should blame yourself. After all, it’s us who are responsible for the filthy streets and stinking alleys. Do you think for a moment before you spit that chewing gum on the road? Do you hold on to that scrap paper looking for a trashcan or stuff it into your jeans pocket instead of just tossing it and letting the wind blow it away? We are all guilty of littering our streets.

And that number is only increasing as we continue to hear news of buses plunging into rivers, injuring and killing many, on a daily basis. Narrow roads with sharp bends, and poor conditions of vehicles and highways are often blamed for such accidents. But what is going on, really?
When Prabal Gurung casually strolled into Nagarik Network’s office in Kamaladi on a warm sunny Tuesday afternoon and shook my hand, it took every ounce of strength I had to be able to make a coherent sentence in my head and introduce myself. When he asked me my name for the second time, leaning in a bit so that he could hear me mumble it again, I couldn’t help but wonder why getting my name right would even matter to him.
