    #43 तिम्रो हाम्रो सबको यातायात

    चिल्लो सडकमा चिल्लो गाडी हैन, हामीलाई हिँड्न डुल्न, साइकिल कुदाउन सुरक्षित सडक चाहियो माइ लर्ड! बढ्दो प्रदूषणलाई नियन्त्रण गर्न निजी गाडीलाई भन्दा विद्युतिय सार्वजनिक यातायातलाई प्रोत्सहान गरौ र सबैलाई सुरक्षित महशुस हुने र वातावरणलाई संरक्षण गर्ने किसिमका भौतिक पूर्वाधारको विकास गरौ, माइ लर्ड! यसैबारे यसपालिको गफगाफ featuring Shristina Shrestha of Nepal Cycle Society.

    This episode focuses on transport, both as a local and national concern. We have tried to explore the state of public transport and how it represents the contestations and conflicts experienced by individuals (especially women) and communities on a daily basis. Our guest Shristina Shrestha of Nepal Cycle Society offers a critical view on some policy lapses when it comes to addressing the public versus private divide in relation to access to green spaces and the disproportionate impact of pollution on the general health and wellbeing of the urban population with limited means.

    #37 Unhappy Womaniyas Unite!

    We are only 2.3% behind Nepali men in our pursuit for happiness, dear ladies, according to a recent study by a CBS survey. So in this episode we talk about things that would make us as happy or happier than Nepali men. A big big thank you to all the wonderful womaniyas who responded to our questions about (un)happiness :)

    In this episode, we look at how the state institutions of Nepal are mirror images of the caste system.
    We will also listen to the lived experiences of Dalit women as they challenge and speak against the very foundations of caste-based discrimination and caste-based oppression.
