KATHMANDU, June 23: While civil campaigner Dr Govinda KC, professor at the Institute of Medicine, stages protests or raises his voice with ample publicity, Ganga Maya Adhikari of Gorkha, who has been fighting for justice for years now, has been neglected even by civil society.
Arguably the most popular and most loved man in the country at the present, Dr Govinda KC continues to inspire the masses. He is the man who has been risking his own life time and again for a single cause: Medical reform in Nepal where every citizen has the right to proper health services.
It’s going to be a significant two months for Bikram Bahadur Rana and Laxmi Kunwar. Rana, who is still affiliated with the army, had lost his eye sight 13 years ago during combat. Kunwar, on the other hand, is bound to a wheel chair after a childhood spinal cord injury rendered her legs useless.
