The beautiful thing about literature is that it captures all variations of emotions. We like stories because they connect us with characters and circumstances we can only dream of. But sometimes it goes beyond our imagination and makes the impact significantly deeper – some books linger long after we have turned the last page.

All of us would love clear, flawless skin. But given the pollution and hormones, not many of us get our wish. Acne, pimple scars, dark circles, and eye bags – the stuff nightmares are made of – is indeed a reality for many of us. But makeup can do wonders here. What you can’t have, you can create and what you don’t want to be seen with, you can hide. The Week sought beautician Shreya Shrestha’s help for some step-by-step tutorials for basic highlighting and concealing tricks that we can use in our day-to-day life.
Wicked Spoon, Fork and Rock is located in Jhamsikhel, nestled between Roadhouse Café and Fusion Bar. It’s a cozy place with good interiors that serve generous portions of food without making you empty out your wallet. The Week’s Isha Upadhyay wanted to see how the food and service were in general and tested it out by going in for a sneak review a few days before the scheduled review date. The food and service both the times were the same.

It was only a couple of weeks ago in this column that I had highlighted the tendency of our politicians to reverse roles with our comedians. And true to form, this time around it’s none other than our Prime Minister who has decided to take up the challenge. Yesterday, the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers released the property details of the PM and his cabinet of ministers.
