Is it right or wrong?

Published

Some people on social media are not not happy to see alcoholic beverage sponsoring the traditional festival, that too with Kumari in display.

The voice was initially raised by Satish Sthapit, singer and guitarist from Newaz Band, through his facebook post, stating:

Felt sad with this branding at Maru. Soon we will see branding in Kumari charriot too. Thukka

The issue escalated quite quickly and now some others too are expressing their dissatisfaction.  However, matter of fact is that locally-prepared alcoholic beverages have significant role in Newa culture, especially in festival like IndraJatra.

What’s your say on this?  Is it right or wrong to get alcoholic beverage as sponsor of traditional event?

Published

This survey is to be participated only by girls. If you are a male, and landed up here for whatsoever reason, you can play a part by distributing this survey form to your female friends.

Mensuration taboo has still been widely practiced in Nepali society, despite the rise in literacy and progressivism and rigorous attempt from all sides to normalize it. Those who keep the taboo alive have their own reasons and those who are fighting against it are still trying to understand why, especially educated groups, still follow the tradition despite knowing there is no neither science nor a rationality behind it.

This survey is conducted to understand the matter much more in general perspectives, their reasons, and their thoughts towards it; and to see the future of the taboo based on the data collected.

Survey: Usage of banking services in Nepal

Published

By

Banks play a vital role in the modern economy. Despite being a significant aspect of everyday life, there has been very little or no research done on the banking sector of Nepal from consumers’ point of view. Also, although banks offer a variety of services, majority people still understand banks for its traditional roles of lending and borrowing money.

This survey is thus conducted in an attempt to learn overall banking experience from consumers’ point of view. This survey is supported by Muktinath Bank. We will publish an article later through this website based on this survey result, to make it publicly available. We believe that this survey will help the banks in the future to take it as a reference to formulate their products and services.

This form is completely anonymous, which means we won’t be knowing your identity. So, please try to be as honest as you can. You can CLICK HERE for the survey form just in case you could not access the form below.
