Shameful. Disgraceful. Nepali journalism is a supreme example of “khatey” journalism and “jholay” journalism. Thukka – randi ka baan patrakaar bhanauda khatey haru. No wonder, no one really respects “journalists” in Nepal, especially the reporters and photographers.
How I hate to be a part of it!
Pic 1: There were about 100 reporters and camerapersons registered for the press conference, however almost 200 plus showed up – with some non-reporters as well. Those on the pic are trying to sneak inside past the first main gate.
Pic 2: Kaski Hall. Former King comes and becomes overwhelmed with the number of journalists present in side the hall. He is interrupted several times with incessant “halla-khalla” journalists were continuing with. He finishes his statement with several journalists at the back still persisting with their commotion.
Pic 3: “Raja le baseko chair”. One asshole taking picture of another asshole sitting on “the” chair. Several “foreign” journalists did not want to miss the opportunity of the life time either and took pictures of themselves posing on the chair. Eventually that chair was broken apart in a “tussle” between the journalists. Kantipur daily has the picture of the unfortunate royal chair.
Pic 4: Another asshole.
