DHADING, Aug 12: Last week Nyu Tamang of Labdung village in the northern side of Dhading district suddenly felt pain in his stomach. His condition got worse in a while. Family and friends took him to a nearby health clinic where he was given saline water. But the pain did not ease, and his health condition deteriorated further. Helpless relatives then contacted a  helicopter to take Tamang to Kathmandu for further treatment.

POKHARA, Jan 19: Homestay is not a healing center. However, that can certainly be made so, according to Yogi Bikasananda. ‘Even now, people are getting healed in a certain way when they spend time meeting ‘organic’ people, far from the maddening crowd .’
