Nepathya to perform in New Zealand
The folk rock band Nepathya is all set to perform in New Zealand on July 28.
"The show in New Zealand was already agreed upon some time ago, but due to traveling, we did not have time to send our passport for visa processing. We therefore arranged to apply for the Kiwi Visa from Australia and started the process once we arrived here. We are glad to confirm that our visas have been approved and we can now formally announce our show in Auckland" a press release stated as quoting Arpan Sharma of Nepalaya, Nepathya's management company.
"We are glad to welcome Nepathya to New Zealand," said Raj Maharjan of Aroha Events. "This is to be a historic event for the Nepali diaspora living here, as this is the first proper Nepali concert in a professional concert venue. I am confident the Nepali community here will come together to celebrate this opportunity," the press statement added citing Sharma.
The New Zealand show is to be the fifth concert for the band as part of its silver jubilee celebration.
"Yes it has been 25 years and I am indebted to all the listeners who accepted us and all the musicians who contributed to make Nepathya, what it is today," the press statement further stated quoting Nepathya frontman Amrit Gurung.
"I am glad to be celebrating this with our well-wishers in Australia and New Zealand." he further added.
After the successful performances in Melbourne and Adelaide, the band will now perform at the Big Top Auditorium in Sydney on July 22, before moving on to Auckland, New Zealand for their debut show in the Kiwi Island.
The Auckland show will be staged at the Sky City Theater on July 28. The band will then return home.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-Ã -vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.

What we need to learn from Thailand?
Thailand is a developing country. But it seemed like a developed country at first sight. It is hard to believe that Thailand is a developing country. There are big buildings, and clean and broad roads. The city is clean with no trace of pollution.
