Did I Miss Anything?

Nothing. When we realized you weren’t here

we sat with our hands folded on our desks

in silence, for the full two hours.


                 Everything. I gave an exam worth

                  40 percent of the grade for this term

                   and assigned some reading due today

                   on which I’m about to hand out a quiz worth 50 per cent.


Nothing. None of the content of this course has value or meaning.

Take as many days off as you like:

any activities we undertake as a class

I assure you will not matter either to you or me

and are without purpose.

This morning the city of Paris looks slightly fuming; the sky is overcast, and it is drizzling too. But it does no harm to me. I have decided to go out for a visit or an observation tour. I asked Nirmal braai for a list of museums in the vicinity of Paris yesterday. He brought me some brochures with the names and addresses, and street maps of Paris Museums in the evening. Paris has more museums than temples and gods in Kathmandu, he says. I am new to Paris, staying here for only one week. Hope these maps and brochures will show me the Paris metro zones and guide me to some museums today. Last week Nirmal braai showed me Pompidou Centre, ‘a complex building of high-tech structure’. This visit has emboldened me to explore further.  I guess I can cover a maximum of two museums today. It means just giving a cursory glance. This is my plan. They say Cezanne is quite far away, Paul Cezanne, the post-impressionist painter, maybe in the outskirts. I cannot visit him all alone, and cannot cover two museums in a day. So I chose to visit a museum nearby in the heart of the city. Likewise, Braque is far, Du Champ is farther away. So I have decided as per Nirmal’s suggestion to start with Rodin’s. Maybe I will go to Monet’s next.

Pokhara Gears Up To Welcome 2022 

POKHARA.The tourism scene in Pokhara swayed between on-season and off-season until a decade ago when in March, April, May, October, November and December were considered to be peak seasons while the rest of the months witnessed a slack in terms of incoming tourists in the lake-city.  However, of late, the influx of tourists has remained untouched by the set definition of peak and slow seasons, further encouraging travel and tourism entrepreneurs here.  

Keeping the current trend in mind, tourism entrepreneurs are looking to project and establish Pokhara as a sought-after destination for celebrating Christmas and New Year. In the same line, preparations are currently underway for organising the Pokhara street festival here in the city.  The 20th Pokhara Street Festival, which was known as REBAN Street Festival until 2007, is being held from December 28 to January 1, 2019, at Lakeside, organised by the Restaurant and Bar Association of Nepal (REBAN).  [English Model Question for SEE 2080]

REBAN Pokhara along with a team of tourism entrepreneurs have been engaged in preparations for the festival while also establishing Pokhara, Lumbini and Chitwan as the ‘Silver Triangle’. It must be noted that these three districts hold major attraction points for internal and foreign tourists.  According to former President of REBAN Pokhara, Surya Bahadur Bhujel, the street festival also aims at marketing Pokhara as a destination for celebrating New Year, somewhat reflecting Goa’s current image as a popular New Year destination. 

The event will be celebrated as Nepal Carnival in the days to come, added Bhujel. According to him, the Gandaki Province government is also a patron for this event.  The festival will be held along a stretch of 3.5 km of street in Lakeside, said President of REBAN Pokhara, Budharaj Bhujel. 

At the event, cultural shows from Nepal along with Japan, South Korea, China and India will be exhibited along with cuisine representing various countries from across the globe at over 150 different stalls.
