ITAHARI, Feb 3: When it comes to herding sheep in commercial scale, common people, in Nepal, only think about alpine meadows in the mountainous region. Shepherds, pictured their grazing sheep against the backdrop of Himalayas, do appear in different newspapers and touristic posters. This has created a narration in the conscience of the general public that herding sheep and shepherds are only the matters of the mountains.

BABIYACHAUR (Myagdi), Aug 18: Two shepherds were hurt and at least 72 sheep killed when lightning struck them at Girka in Myagdi on Wednesday night.
