| Following the recent decision of the UCPN (Maoist) standing committee to accept Nepal Army-proposed modality of integration, the parties are likely to reach consensus on the modality for integration of the Maoist combatants. |
However, the Maoists have not accepted the modality in totality, leaving the nitty-gritties of modality open for discussion with other parties. In this context, Republica´s Kiran Chapagain and Kiran Pun talked to Barsha Man Pun, the chief of the party´s army department, on Sunday. Excerpts:

KATHMANDU, May 23: “Son or daughter?” my elderly neighbor asked me pointing my big belly. I proudly replied “daughter” as I was going to be a mother for the first time.I was eagerly waiting that cherished moment. But hearing my reply, her facial countenance darkened. She narrowed her eyes.
Anger was bellowed inside me but I remained silent. Breaking the silence, she began giving me sympathy, “First daughter is okay. But, next time check and give birth.”
Earlier, he had registered his dissent when Chairman Dahal adopted the line of peace and constitution overturning the mandate of the Palungtar plenum.
Baidya has accused Chairman Dahal of deviating from the revolutionary course of the party. Republica’s Kiran Pun caught up with him at the party headquarters Paris Danda after the standing committee meeting of the party held on Saturday. Excerpts:
The April Uprising in 2006 reenergized the minor intersection in front of distinctive water tower as it became a favorite site for protest programs. Since the formation of the Constituent Assembly (CA), all kinds of pressure groups use the place to proclaim their position on various issues of national importance. Last Saturday it was the turn of the twitterati (The Urban Dictionary definition: “The Tweet elite, whose feeds attract thousands of followers and whose 140-character spews capture the attention of the rapt who doggedly monitor them”) to declare that they were angry, very, very angry, with their elected representatives.
Along with Gharti, two other ministerial nominees also boycotted the ceremony. All of them are from the Maoist party hardline faction led by Senior Vice-chairman Mohan Baidya.
Gharti has argued that she is in politics not our of vested interests, but to fight for the cause of women and the betterment of society.
"So oath-taking is not the major issue; the issue is whether reservations for women are ensured," Gharti said. She is also against the party´s decision to send into government those defeated in the CA elections. "What is the meaning of getting elected by people if losers also get equal political opportunity?" she asks. Excerpts of an interview:

फोटो पत्रकार क्लबले आयोजना गरेको नेपाल कै सबैभन्दा ठूलो फोटो प्रतियोगितामा विभिन्न विधामा उत्कृष्ट फोटोहरुको घोषणा आज भयो। कुन फोटो राम्रो, कुन ठीक, कुन झुर- त्यो हेर्नेको आँखामा भर पर्ने कुरा हो। करिब छ सय जना सौखिन र व्यवसायिक फोटोग्राफरहरुबाट प्राप्त झण्डै पाँच हजार फोटोलाई छान्नु चानचुने काम थिएन। निर्णायकहरुले त्यसमध्येबाट १४३ वटा उत्कृष्ट फोटो छानेर त्यसमा पनि विभिन्न विधाका उत्कृष्ट फोटो चयन गरेका थिए। एउटा फोटोलाई वर्षको सर्वोत्कृष्ट घोषणा गरिएको थियो र एक लाख रुपैयाँ बराबरको पुरस्कार दिइएको थियो। माथिको फोटो त्यो एक लाख जित्ने सर्वोत्कृष्ट फोटो हैन। तर मेरो मनलाई भने चसक्क पारेको फोटो हो यो। एकछिन टक्क अडिएर धेरै सोच्न बाध्य बनाउने छ यो फोटो। समाचार विधातर्फ पहिलो पुरस्कार पाएको यो फोटो कपिलदेव खनालले खिचेका हुन्।
फोटोमा माध्यमिक विद्यालयका यी विद्यार्थीहरु समूहमा तुइनबाट त्रिशुली नदी तर्दैछन्। उनीहरुको बुद्दसिन गाउँमा माध्यमिक विद्यालय नभएकोले दिनहुँ दुई पटक यसरी तुइन तर्नुपर्ने बाध्यता रहेछ।
माथिको फोटो भने पर्यटन विधा अर्थात् नेपाललाई चिनाउने, नेपालको प्रवर्द्धन गर्ने फोटोहरु मध्ये उत्कृष्ट ठहरिएको हो। यसलाई लमजुङमा रमेश तामाङले खिचेका रहेछन्।
A working day in the Facebook India office isn't just about ideas, codes, designs and tests.
We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush's compound, assassinated him, and dumped his body in the Atlantic.t's increasingly clear that the operation was a planned assassination, multiply violating elementary norms of international law. There appears to have been no attempt to apprehend the unarmed victim, as presumably could have been done by 80 commandos facing virtually no opposition - except, they claim, from his wife, who lunged towards them. In societies that profess some respect for law, suspects are apprehended and brought to fair trial. I stress "suspects." In April 2002, the head of the FBI, Robert Mueller, informed the press that after the most intensive investigation in history, the FBI could say no more than that it "believed" that the plot was hatched in Afghanistan, though implemented in the UAE and Germany. What they only believed in April 2002, they obviously didn't know 8 months earlier, when Washington dismissed tentative offers by the Taliban (how serious, we do not know, because they were instantly dismissed) to extradite bin Laden if they were presented with evidence - which, as we soon learned, Washington didn't have. Thus Obama was simply lying when he said, in his White House statement, that "we quickly learned that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by al Qaeda."
