Reviewing South Asian Games 2016

The 12th South Asian Games held in Shillong and Guwahati of India will be remembered among the Nepalese for the gold medal win in Men’s Football Event. Not only did this victory come at the expense of the host nation India, but it came after 23 long years.


Out of the 22 events, we won medals in 18 of them. Wushu, Taekwondo and Judo gave us the most medals, but we ended the games with just 3 gold medals (Wushu, Judo, Mens Football).


We won a whopping 10 silver medals in Wushu and 7 in Taekwondo, meaning there were 17 losses in the finals of those events. Taekwondo, which has been a major winner for Nepal, unfortunately failed to win any gold medals.


Women won the most medals in the Games bringing in 2 of the 3 gold medals, 14 silver medals and 20 bronze medals.

MLTR to rock Nepal

On a cold winter’s night‚ Kathmandu came alive to the romantic ballads of a world famous Danish band as Michael Learns To Rock with its sould stirring tunes and catchy beats that MLTR has become synonymous for the world over‚ captured the hearts of Nepali music lovers on Saturday evening at Tundikhel in the capital.

The evergreen trio teased the heart strings of Kathmanduites both old and young with their signature tunes that have firmly entrenched their name in the annals of music history. Among the teeny boppers that have become a mainstay of rock concerts was a generous sprinkling of middle aged wannabes reliving the golden age of their youth humming the irresistible tunes of the curiously named band honouring the never-say-die legend of Michael Jackson‚ even if his music has no direct relation to their unique heart rending melodies.


It’s been a musical 2011 for Nepal. Check out Kailash Kher’s and Bryan Adams’ performance.

Kher will be performing at Hotel Soaltee Crowne Plaza. The show will be opened by Nepali band Abhaya and the Steam Injunes. A press meet held on March 22included a live confirmation from Kailash Kher himself through a video call. Kailash Kher skyping with Sunil Hamal of JPR Events said “Kathmandu is a juxtaposition of art, music and culture and I’m looking forward to performing for the Nepali audience.”

The show is being organized by JPR Events, who are the same people that made the Bryan Adams concert happen back in February of this year. The musical evening will be followed by a fashion show.

So get ready to celebrate this New Year’s Eve with some Sufi music. The Indian Sufi playback singer will be there at Soaltee Crowne Plaza on the Nepali New Year’s Eve, April 13.

“Hi this is Kailash Kher and I am coming to Kathmandu to rock you guys and to celebrate Nepal Tourism Year 2011 and hope to see you there.”

But this is not the first time Kailash Kher is visiting Nepal. Speaking at the event, he revealed that he has visited Nepal previously to perform at a private party at Hyatt regency. And this is less or more similar to the private function as Sherpa expresses, “It will be more of a private event,” adding it will be followed by an after-party including a fashion show.

It was the Song Allah ke Bande from movie Waisa Bhi Hota Hai Part II that made him a household name. Other two songs Teri Deewani from the album of the same name by his band Kailasa and especially the song Ya Rabba from the movie Salaam-e-Ishq has become a record-seller.

Government of Nepal in consultation with Nepalese travel trade sector and concerned organizations/experts decided on October 25, 2008 to launch a national tourism campaign “Nepal Tourism Year 2011”. This announcement reflects the government’s anticipation to bring into Nepal at least one million international tourists by the year 2011 and tourism industry’s exigency to organize a tourism promotion campaign for wider impact.

With the badge of adventure destination glittering and the adage “Atithi Devo Bhava” (Guests are Gods) embedded in our culture, the portfolio of tourism products never cease to mesmerize the visitors. The unparallel cultural, geographical, ethnic and bio diversities of the country allure visitors to Nepal time and again which truly substantiates the spirit of Nepal tourism brand ‘Naturally Nepal, once is not enough !’

The concept of Nepal Tourism Year 2011 envisions harnessing these opportunities and strengths and bringing together the commitment of the government, expertise and experiences of the organizations like Nepal Tourism Board, aptitude and dynamism of the private sector and communities for further tourism development in the country. Representation and active participation from the major political parties, members of the Constitution Assembly and Right groups is always taken into prominence in order to make the campaign inclusive and participatory in modus operandi and effective in result. The campaign will also focus on mobilizing the networks of the Non-Resident Nepalis (NRN) communities, Nepalese diplomatic missions abroad, INGOs and NGOs, airlines and national and international media. Similarly, friends and well-wishers of Nepal, tourism academicians and celebrities will be approached in order to highlight the campaign internally as well as internationally.
