Perfect pout

June 29, 2018 06:05 am

Lips are one of the most sensitive areas of our bodies. Even the slightest discomfort results in them cracking, drying out and, at times, even bleeding. Lip care is essential not only in the winter months when the cold dries it out but even during the summer months when the humid and hot weather can take their toll on the sensitive skin and lead to chapped lips.

Biratnagar Messy yet perfect

April 2, 2018 10:05 am

Biratnagar, the industrial hub of Nepal, is a fast-paced city. At first glance, I thought I would never like this place. Bumpy roads, dusty atmosphere and polluted air— an infrastructural mess—is how I described Biratnagar initially. But the more I lived here, the more I learned about the city and its people, and my dislikes changed into likes. Today, it would not be wrong to say that unexpectedly I have fallen in love with this messy yet perfect city.

It’s actually very depressing but studies in Sweden found that sleep-deprived people were perceived as less attractive and sadder than well-rested people.

It is always nice to come across people who take the next step in their life after being in love for a while. They love the moment when they tie the knot and nothing could be more special to them. These are the lucky ones as they enjoy an amazing moment each day of them being together. But, perfection is an understatement.

Or maybe it could be the thought of taking the other person for granted.

The perfect storm

July 9, 2016 00:35 am

Infertile land, difficult terrains, earthquake-prone, and frequent witness to floods and landslides: the odds are stacked against Sindhupalchowk district. So despite being so close to Kathmandu it is among the least developed districts in Nepal. During last year’s earthquakes, nearly 3,600 people were killed there, the most among the 14 hardest-hit districts; 97 percent of its houses were either partially or completely damaged. Most dismaying for Sindhupalchowk has been post-quake closure of the Tatopani border with China, which in many ways is the district’s lifeline. Before that, in 2014, over 150 people perished in landslides in the district’s Jure VDC. In the most recently landslides at Tatopani, the foundations of around 100 houses on the Kodari highway have been eaten away; it’s only a matter of time before they tumble down into the raging Bhotekoshi below. With the forces of nature so heavily ranged against the district, it is also hard to see what practical steps can be taken to ensure continued livelihood of around 300,000 people who call it their home.
