It involves clambering over fathomless crevasses, battling temps that can dip to –40°F, winds that can rage upwards of 100 m.p.h., breathing oxygen-deprived air at stratospheric heights — and this woman did it twice in the space of seven days, clinching a new world record.

According to the Associated Press, Chhurim, a 29-year-old Nepalese Sherpa (who like many Sherpas has just one name), scaled Mount Everest not once, but twice inside of a week, reaching the 29,035-ft. summit of the tallest mountain in the world first on May 12, 2012, then again seven days later on May 19. This week Nepal’s Tourism Minister Posta Bahadur Bogati presented Chhurim with a certificate from the Guinness World Records celebrating her feat.

“I am very happy for this recognition,” said Chhurim, as reported by Agence France-Presse. ”I was determined that the record should be held by a Nepalese woman and I’m proud to be one.” Read the rest of this entry »

Nepal was promoted in Pako Festa, Australia

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 23, 2013

Parade

23 February 2013 Geelong, Australia: Geelong, the second biggest city of Victoria in Australia, transformed into a multicultural melting pot as thousands flocked to the thirty-first annual Pako Festa. It incorporated an extravagant street parade featuring around ninety floats and hundreds of performers representing forty-five affiliated ethnic communities and around sixty other community groups and organizations. The street was lined with stalls selling traditional foods and arts and crafts, and nine separate stages in the precinct offer performances of music and dance as well as interactive workshops and exhibitions. Pako Festa has become Victoria’s premier multicultural event, attended by well over hundred thousand people in each of the last three years and estimated to inject close to $2.5 million dollars into the local economy just over the course of the day itself.

Because of very nominal Nepalese in Geelong, Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement Global Coordinator Mr. Ram Kumar Shrestha requested other Nepalese communities living in other cities to use Pako Festa as opportunity to promote Nepal as the country of the Buddha and the Mt. Everest. His idea was for Nepal to take advantage of this big gathering from different counties to try to dismiss misinformation of Buddha’s birthplace. Nepalese Association of Victoria President Bom Yonjan, Nepali Sanchar Managing Director Pramod K Soni and Namaste Nepal News Chief Editor Sabin Thapa, and Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement Victoria Committee were active for necessary input and mobilized community members to participate in the festival to promote Nepal as the country of the Buddha and the Mt. Everest. Nepalese communities promoted Nepal through flags, banners, Nepali music, dance, Nepali dress and stalls.

बुद्ध नेपालमै जन्मिएका हुन् – भारतीय विद्वान

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 9, 2013

-कमल रायमाझी

Buddha born in Nepal१६ माघ, भैरहवा । गौतम बुद्ध भारतमा नभै नेपालमै जन्मिएको प्रस्टोक्ति एक भारतीय एक विदुषी प्राध्यापकले दिनुभएको छ ।

रुपन्देहीस्थित भैरहवा बहुमुखी क्यामपसद्वारा आयोजित कार्यक्रममा भारतीय प्राध्यापक डा अन्जु शर्मा उपाध्यायले भन्नुभयो, “सस्तो लोकपि्रयताका लागि कसैकसैले बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको बताएको होलान् तर मेरो अनुभव, अनुसन्धान र खोजले कहिल्यै बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको प्रमाण पाएको छैन” । उहाँले प्राज्ञिक तवरले पुराना गल्तीलाई सच्चाउन सम्बन्धित निकायलाई झक्झकाउने बताउनुभयो ।

केही समयअघि लुम्बिनीमा आयोजित नेपाल-भारत टुरिजम मार्ट नामक कार्यक्रममा भारतीय पक्षबाट वितरित एक पुस्तिका ‘दि पाथ’ मा बुद्धका बुबा शुद्धोदनको दरबार रहेको तिलौराकोट क्षेत्र भारतको उत्तर प्रदेशमा पर्दछ भनी उल्लेख गरिएको थियो । यस कार्यक्रममा संस्कृति मन्त्री पोस्टबहादुर बोगटी र नेपालका लागि भारतीय राजदूत जयन्तप्रसादलगायत नेपाल र भारतका पर्यटन व्यवसायीको उल्लेख्य सहभागिता थियो । Read the rest of this entry »

US $ 77 million Gautam Buddha Int’l Airport to be built

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 3, 2013

SAMIKSHA KOIRALA

airport-gautam-buddhaKATHMANDU, Jun 26:Upgrading Gautam Buddha Airport (GBA) at Lumbini, which the government plans to develop into a regional international airport, will cost more than double what the Asian Development Bank (ADB) had earlier assessed, according to the latest detailed study commissioned by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal(CAAN).

“The new assessment done by a Korea-based consulting firm shows that the cost of completion of the first phase upgradation alone will hover around US $ 77 million. This is higher than the earlier estimate by US $ 42 million,” said a senior official at CAAN.

A previous study carried out by the ADB four years ago had put the total cost of first phase upgradation at around US $ 35 million.

Based on that assessment, the government had secured a soft loan of around US $ 38 million under the South Asia Tourism Infrastructure Development Project of ADB. As per the agreement, the Nepal government has to bear 15 percent of the total cost.

The latest estimate has rattled the CAAN – the civil aviation regulator – and it has turned to the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to arrange additional funds.

“We have sent a letter to MoF requesting it to arrange additional resources in the coming budget or initiate a dialogue with the ADB for raising the assistance amount,” Tri Ratna Manandhar, director general of CAAN, told Republica.  Read the rest of this entry »
