Welcome to Nepal Now, the podcast where we discuss new ideas and approaches to move the country forward. My name is Marty Logan. I hope you don't mind a slight digression to start. A few weeks ago I met a friend, someone I see every few months. One of the first things he said to me was, 'I see your podcast is on a break'. We chatted for a while and later I realized that I had no idea he kept up with the show. This has happened to me regularly this year: every so often I meet someone who says they've been listening or that they met someone who mentioned Nepal Now. When I started the show more than two years ago I imagined it becoming a viable piece of journalism, one that might generate a buzz, or at least a mention, among people interested in development and positive change. From what I can tell, that has not happened. I think we've gathered a small audience, like my friend above, which is relatively stable but not evidently growing. This has discouraged me – and I will admit, after musing over the future of Nepal Now regularly during the past couple of years, that I might discourage too easily. But now I wonder if I've failed to communicate clearly to you, dear listeners, my vision for the podcast. So I will say very clearly now — I'm not doing this as a hobby, but as a journalism initiative. And frankly speaking, I think that we could have, and should have, more listeners, but I need your help to spread the word and attract more fans. That's how we will make Nepal Now a sustainable venture. So please, share this episode with at least one other person you think would like it . You can click on the share icon (the one with the up-pointing arrow) in your podcast app, which is probably where you're listening now. On social media it's even easier — just share one of our posts on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn.Thanks very much. Now on with the episode.Today we're chatting with Sanjib Chaudhary. He's a communicator I got to know through his Twitter account, where he posts about the food, flora and fauna of Nepal's tarai or plains region. Many of his Tweets are about the culture of the Tharu indigenous people, who are native to the tarai, or Madhesh region. Sanjib himself is Tharu. And now, since it seems to be a day for speaking frankly, I have to tell you. When I invited Sanjib on the show I assumed that his social media activity was driven by Tharu nationalism, or Madhesi nationalism. But after you listen to our conversation I think you'll agree that's probably not the case—Sanjib just wants to share the new things that he discovers on his travels. And one other confession: I put Sanjib through the nerve-wracking experience of recording this episode in visual as well as audio format. Sure he works in communications, so putting on a lapel mic, posing for cameras, and being told you can move your hands here but not there was nothing new to him. But it's still something he didn't sign up for when I invited him on the show. This episode will be available on the Nepal Now YouTube channel as soon as I work up the nerve to see how funny I looked on video.ResourcesSanjib Chaudhary on TwitterSanjib on InstagramNepal Now social linksFacebookInstagramTwitterLinkedInThanks as always to Nikunja Nepal for advice and inspiration.Music: amaretto needs ice ... by urmymuse (c) copyright 2018 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial  (3.0) license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/urmymuse/57996 Ft: Apoxode

Triumph for Independent Candidates? Observations on the 2022 Local Elections in Nepal

Nepal's recent local elections, held in May 2022 in 753 urban and rural municipalities, produced a number of surprises. Most prominent in national headlines was the victory of independent candidate and former rap musician Balen Shah in the race for mayor of Kathmandu, Nepal's capital. But is the success of Shah and several other independent candidates really a signal of a broader shift away from the dominance of traditional parties in Nepal, or were these just isolated events? What do the results tell us about the persistence of vote bank culture in Nepal? How did female candidates fare in the elections? And what are the political aspirations of Kathmandu's new mayor? Nayan Pokhrel, a Kathmandu-based political analyst, discusses with Hanna Geschewski the election results and how they fit into larger political transitions in the young Federal Republic. Nayan Pokhrel is an independent researcher and political analyst. His recent assignments include monitoring of the implementation of federalism in Nepal with the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA) and political economy analysis of Nepal's elections with the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD). He previously led research and observation at Democracy Resource Center Nepal which has been monitoring Nepal's political transition and settlement since the adoption of the new Constitution in 2015. Hanna Geschewski is a PhD researcher in Human Geography at the Chr. Michelsen Institute and the University of Bergen in Norway, focusing on socio-ecological adaptation processes in Tibetan refugee settlements in Karnataka, India.

Welcome to Nepal Now. My name is Marty Logan. I'm back after a long break – thanks for joining me. Today we're doing something different. On Aug 21st I was at St. Xavier's College in Kathmandu, talking with journalism students about podcasting. Actually, I tried to keep the talking part to a minimum — our main task was to create this episode that you're listening to now. The theme of the session was: When you're a journalist, how will you do journalism differently?  I was impressed with the ideas expressed by the students, who are between 18 and 22 years old, and still have three years of studies to complete. On the positive side, one noted the growing accessibility of global news, including during the Covid-19 pandemic. But others pointed out faults of Nepal's media, including the lack of female talk show hosts and the concentration of media in the capital, Kathmandu.    They also offered many suggestions for improving the industry. One shared her passion for becoming a voice for the voiceless, another of covering stories about minority communities, and a third would aim to tackle fake news and misinformation. More than one student believes it's important to divert the current focus of Nepal's journalism from politics to other aspects of society. Other approaches, like storytelling and citizen journalism, were also offered as new directions. A quick note to say that the sound is more echo-y than usual today because we recorded in a classroom at the college. I forgot to record the questions during the session so I added them afterwards.ResourcesSt. Xavier's CollegeNepal Now social linksFacebookInstagramTwitterLinkedInThanks as always to Nikunja Nepal for advice and inspiration.Music: amaretto needs ice ... by urmymuse (c) copyright 2018 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial  (3.0) license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/urmymuse/57996 Ft: Apoxode

"Hi-Diddly-Dee An Actor's Life For Me!" Please welcome Actor, Creative & all round 'prolific pants' Stewart Wright atop a bus on the way to Kathmandu in the halcyon days of being 19 for his 'Clearing', as we talk the combined passions of life, family, rugby and acting.Recorded also as a Facebook LIVE: https://www.facebook.com/730074635/videos/1030198231024253/Actor Stewart Wright, soon to be seen as “Devina Delish, the Cross Dressing Plumber” in “Midsomer Murders” and to answer the question that we've all been asking: “Dude, Where's My Donkey?” Also due to be appearing as “BS3 Santa” on a doorstep near you in Bristol at Christmas - and as “Barney the Postman” in a Christmas film on Netflix with a cheeky appearance in between in the West End as Richard Burbage (of Shakespeare's Lord Chamberlain Company) in “Upstart Crow” - with David Mitchell as the Bard himself - William Shakespeare!Marvellous!More about Stewart from Reg Starkey - Editor of UK Health Triangle Magazine: Sugar-free Stewart Wright is a fascinatingly competitive  English character actor. He has done remarkably well on TV and in films, as well as on stage. When Covid closed theatres but allowed freedom to move, he took his talent onto the streets, knocking on doors in the Christmas season with a degree of success that surprised even him. Stewart displays classical English charm, with traditional reserve. His parents were both doctors, who could not heal themselves and chose instead to go their different ways very early in Stewart's young life. Perhaps it was then that he first picked up the theatrical masks of comedy and tragedy, hiding his true feelings politely in the process? He was sent away to boarding  school, where he first trod the boards and got a taste for the ‘smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd'. But where he really excelled was on the rugby field. Despite a serious knee injury aged 14, Stewart became Captain of Wellington's first XV and dreamed daily of playing for England. He was was definitely on track when he was selected for an England under 18 trial - but his hopes were shattered by a recurrence of his earlier injury. The possibility of playing professional rugby was kicked savagely into the longest grass. Stewart was left in the lonely field of the eternal subjunctive: the might- have-been. Aged 19, footloose and fiancée free, Stewart found his way to Kathmandu, enjoying the excesses of gap-year-style freedom before committing to three years at Drama School back in London. He never stopped watching top quality rugby or loving it - but acting became his new passion. In those early years, Stewart ran through Agents and girlfriends like a precocious child running through newly mown hay. By his own admission, his twenties and most of his thirties were mainly completely out of balance, addictive even. Yet as you can see from his Wikipedia page, they were also full of professional success - particularly in TV and on film, including now a new Bollywood biopic on Rugby as Paul Walsh and numerous new creative projects. For Stewart, his new and better-balanced life only really began at 40, when he got married to Celia and started his own family. The wild child, wounded by his own parents' divorce, was determined to create a secure, stable and loving environment for his wife and their two young sons. Meaningful creative work remains enormously important to this recently rebalanced individual - but family is now infinitely more important. Check him out. He remains highly competitive…Stewart Wright may once have been a headache - but he never was a bore!www.stewartwright.net

In the third episode of CPR's new series titled, Spotlight South Asia, we analyse the developments in Nepal. Hosted by Senior Fellow, Sushant Singh, this series features leading experts from India's neighborhood to make sense of the political, economic and social developments in these countries and what they mean for India. Our guest for this episode is Amish Raj Mulmi, an editor and writer based out of Kathmandu in Nepal. He is the author of the book, “All Roads Lead North: Nepal's Turn to China”. Amish and Sushant discuss the economic situation in Nepal after two years of pandemic and if it is comparable to other South Asian countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan. They talk about the condition of tourism and remittances in the country. Amish explains the two agreements with the US that have become controversial in Nepal and the reasons behind this controversy. He also comments on the Nepal-China relationship in the light of the recent visit of the Nepalese foreign minister to meet his Chinese counterpart. The discussion revolves around various important questions about Nepal and its relationship with other South Asian countries. What is the political situation in Nepal, how are the social indicators in the country holding up? Has the increase in the Nepal army's strength and its role in the democratic setup changed the political landscape in some manner? Finally, they discuss how today's India looks from Nepal.

Nirjala, the "Mountain Queen," was born in Kumari Pati in Kathmandu, Nepal. Nirjala is one of two children, with a younger brother who is a keen road biker. Nirjala started out in her late teens as a professional model. For this career, she was required to keep fit, and it was through going to the gym that she got into first bodybuilding and then cycling. In 2001, some friends suggested she try her luck in a mountain bike race, The Himalayan Mountain Bike Race Series, and she won the National Women's Category. This proved to be her inspiration to leave modelling and pursue a professional career as a cyclist for the Nepal National Team. Nirjala's rise to fame and to working as a professional athlete for the Nepal National Team was beset by the difficulty that arose from the patriarchy-based society in which she grew up. Although she competed at a national and international level and at a higher level than the majority of Nepalese male riders, she was marginalized by her own national cycling association, which found sponsors and endorsements for her male counterparts. Despite this, she continued and found her own sponsors (like Qoroz Professional Titanium Bikes). Nirjala's Notable Achievements: First Nepalese Woman to cycle 22 days from Lhasa (Tibet) to Everest Base Camp (North) to Kathmandu (Nepal) First female to Win (2 times) the Highest Altitude, Endurance race in the World, "The Yak Attack" First Nepalese Female to win a cycle race in the UK First Nepalese Cycle Athlete to compete in a UCI World Cup Finals First Nepalese Cycle Athlete to compete in South Asian Games First Nepalese Woman to complete a cycle race of the Annapurna Circuit Recipient of the - "Tamrakar Award Fund" - Ugrachandi Award (Nepal) Participated in the mountain biking competition at the 16th Asian Games in China in November 2010 She is now a keynote speaker and role model for young women in Nepal and all over the world who have grown up in oppressive societies but dream of being recognized for their sports and achievements. The British writer Jane Nobel Knight wrote a book titled "The Inspiring Journeys of Pilgrim Mothers" and included a chapter on Nirjala's struggle and eventual success in her field. Nirjala is now married to her British husband, Daniel Wright, and has a son, Percy, and a daughter, Aurora. She is also a respected Mandala Artist (3-time Nepal National, Street Mandala Winner) and holds a Masters in Business Studies (MBS). Nirjala recently completed her 10km swim race on 9th July in 5 hours, organized by MediaCity UK Swim Challenge.

Our guest today is a lovely Elvish woman, who could've easily descended from a family of Wood Nymphs. Ellen Johannesen was born in Norway but has spent many years living abroad, mainly in India and Nepal. She was first introduced to yoga during her career as a professional dancer and has been teaching now for over 20 years. In 2002, she co-founded the first Ashtanga studio in Oslo, Norway, where she headed up the Mysore program. However, her time in India led to a growing interest in Buddhism, which brought her back to live and study for three years in Bylakuppe, at a Tibetan Monastery and Tibetan refugee settlement. She subsequently moved to Kathmandu where she became a Tibetan translator and earned a Masters degree in Buddhist studies and Himalayan Languages from Kathmandu University. During this time she founded the first Mysore program in the center of Kathmandu where she lived and taught for seven years. Ellen also studied Sanskrit, which was traditionally widely used among the Nepali Brahmin population and the Newar Buddhists. More recently, she has returned to Norway, but continues to take students on transformational retreats, where you can practice Ashtanga yoga and go trekking in the spiritual hub of the Himalayas. She loves sharing some of her favourite places around and beyond the Kathmandu valley, while introducing students to the sacred sites and natural beauty that is Nepal.

Can faith give you perspective even in the most extreme travel situations?In 2010, Jurek Schreiner, a photographer, having completed his studies at the Shedra: College for Buddhist Studies in Nepal, was invited with his future wife, Greta Williams, to Bhutan to participate in the 2nd event of the Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche Centennial Celebrations. To get there, they caught an overnight bus from Kathmandu to the eastern border town of Karkavitta. Traversing across dangerous mountain passes, they were relieved when they finally hit the relative safety of the flat plains of the Terrai region in the south of Nepal. But fate had other ideas, and the bus overturned on the road just before dawn.  Jurek, suffering from head injuries, was eventually taken to a local hospital to be operated on, but even there they faced challenges including language barriers, sanitation issues and being caught up in a Maoist strike.  We also discuss how their faith helped them cope, the effect the accident had on their relationship and Jurek's work with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.Jurek Schreiner is a photographer & passionate about outdoor action sports & the teachings of the Buddha.  He's photographed His Holiness the Dalai Lama on 3 separate occasions & some of this material has been part of an ongoing world exhibit: http://tulkus1880to2018.net/exhibition/ You can find Jurek at https://www.lookofjoyphotography.com and also on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/jurek.schreinerGreta Williams has travelled and lived overseas on and off for a couple of decades after completing a Medical Anthropology degree with a focus on Pre-med.

Welcome to Nepal Now, the podcast where we discuss new ideas and initiatives to move the country forward. My name is Marty Logan. A lot has happened around menstrual health issues in Nepal in recent years. And it seems that all that work is bearing fruit. In its last budget the government pledged to drastically cut the tax and import duty on menstrual hygiene products, while a toolkit created by a group of organizations will soon be distributed in government schools. Today's guests have taken very different routes to contribute to better menstrual health. Working with 80 young Nepali illustrators, Sophie Maliphant  has just published the book Kumari's Adventure with her Moon Cycle to help young girls, and others, to understand the changes in their bodies with menstruation. Gyan Maharjan has been called Nepal's Pad man for his efforts to create chemical-free, climate-friendly pads and make them available country wide. And Neeta Timsina has introduced menstrual leave for employees in her company. Of course much more remains to be done. As Gyan points out, only one-third of the bathrooms in government schools have reliable running water, a prerequisite for good hygiene. While chhaupadi, the practice of segregating women — usually in small, unsafe sheds outdoors — after giving birth or when having their periods, happens mostly in Far Western Nepal, women in every type of household in all parts of the country face discrimination when menstruating. And, as we all know, government budget pledges are only the first step to seeing changes made on the ground. Finally, we people living in the capital Kathmandu – particularly those of us who spend much of our days online – have a skewed understanding of life in Nepal. Awareness-raising efforts need to focus on the country's villages. Here, recently elected local governments, which have proven to be effective in other health and education ventures, should be enlisted as partners. Please listen now to my chat with Neeta Timsina, Gyan Maharjan and Sophie Maliphant. This is episode #50 of Nepal Now. Thank you to everyone who's helped us reach this mark, and to you for listening. After two years we're going to take a break and will be back in September.  Meanwhile, if you haven't been with us from Day 1, please take the time to check out our 49 previous episodes.

Co je hlavní esence Nepálu a proč ho jednou za život navštívit? Má smysl se v 21. století snažit hledat osvícení? Co by to mělo pro člověka žijícího v západní kultuře být? A co jsou ty hlavní myšlenky, které si člověk po třech týdnech v horách uvědomí a nechce zapomenout? Tento díl Deep Talks jsme natočili na konci naší expedice po Nepálu. Mým hostem byl vůdce naší výpravy, spisovatel, marketér a zakladatel pražského Eccentric Clubu Jakub Horák.

This week, we are going on a grand adventure to the high mountains of Nepal. In 2015, I was fortunate enough to go trekking in Nepal to Everest Base Camp with Hari Bohara of Himalayan Trekking Alliance as my guide, and I am happy to say that I have finally been able to get him on the show this week to talk about what it's like to prepare for a long multi-day trek in Nepal. We will talk about how Hari became a guide, what you need to get ready to set off on your trek, what it's like to land at one of the world's most dangerous airports, and the day-to-day life of hiking at high altitude on your way to Everest Base Camp. Are you ready for an adventure? Then, tune in and let's go to Nepal with Hari.

Podcast host and tour guide Ted Cragg joins me today to talk about his homeland, Canada. Ted hosts the TRAVEL PODCAST THE WORLD SHOW. He talks with to other travel podcasters about their shows, their inspirations and the behind the scenes process that make their shows complete. Ted had me on his show a few weeks ago, and I enjoyed the conversation so much that I wanted to have him to talk to you. During this episode, we talk through a whole fictional trip to eastern Canada, taking in the cities, the wilderness, mountains and lakes. You can tell, during this conversation that I come from a such small country, as I don't think I really understood quite how large Canada actually is. It really seems like you'd need several trips to do it justice, unless you're going for multiple weeks or even months. We talk about some cultural highlights of a trip around the country; how you'd be best to get around the place; what corners you might want to explore depending on what you're looking for; and why Canada makes such an interesting travel destination.

You visit a restaurant in a far-away city, only to find you're on the menu. When young backpackers go missing on the trail through Nepal, no one bats an eyelid. After-all, high in the Himalayan mountains, Kathmandu's a haven for those who want to “get lost.” Back in England, Leo's down on his luck. He's jobless, crippled by anxiety and obsessed with an ex-girlfriend he hasn't seen in years. Asked to track down a wealthy politician's daughter in Kathmandu, Leo thinks his fortunes are on the turn. Escaped from her family and travelling the world, all Allissa wants is to be left alone. Running a hostel for the victims of people traffickers, she hopes the surrounding mountains will keep the world away. In a bid to prove himself, Leo sets off on a twisting train through Kathmandu's labyrinthine streets. But, when the investigation leads to a sinister backstreet restaurant and a storm makes escape impossible, he may have bitten off more than he can chew.

It can be hard to think of Everest as unknown anymore. While it's certainly a challenge to climb the world's tallest mountain, someone–with enough time and money–has a good chance of making it to the summit. A potential mountaineer can fly into Kathmandu, travel to a well-stocked base camp, be escorted up a well-trodden route by expert sherpas. There's even Wifi at the peak. The relative ease of climbing Everest is born from almost a century of attempted expeditions up the mountain, to determine how high one could go, and what routes to take. Even the successful expedition of Norgay and Hillary was built on the efforts of those who came before. And the first expeditions, in 1921 and 1922, are the subject of Mick Conefrey's Everest 1922: The Epic Story of the First Attempt on the World's Highest Mountain (Pegasus Books, 2022). Mick tells the story of these very first attempts to climb the mountain–including the difficulties of funding, recruitment, and travel, as well as the climb itself. In this interview, Mick and I talk about the two expeditions to Everest–including its most famous participant, George Mallory–the scientific and mountaineering controversies around it, and what makes climbing Everest different today. Mick Conefrey is an award-winning writer and documentary film maker. He created the landmark BBC series The Race for Everest to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the first ascent. His previous books include The Adventurer's Handbook: Life Lessons from History's Great Explorers (Smithsonian: 2006); Everest 1953: The Epic Story of the First Ascent (Mountaineers Books: 2014), the winner of a Leggimontagna Award; and Ghosts of K2: The Race for the Summit of the World's Most Deadly Mountain (Oneworld Publications: 2015), which won a U.S. National Outdoor Book Award.
