Finally, Pramod Mishra has struck home with his article "Patriarchy, female freedom and Shrisha Karki" (#122) on the tragic death of the film actres. So far, media reporting, including in your own paper, has been more of a rant for Shrisha and/or against the editor, Kishore Shrestha. Mr Mishra is very much right when he says Nepali women (and men too) are caught between patriarchal tradition and consumerist modernity. Our society itself is in a kind of deep dilemma that we cannot shed our traditional beliefs and values, and at the same time, we are attracted by modern ones. A person cannot be in two different worlds at the same time. Shrisha's case will definitely make so called Nepali gender specialists ponder female rights, freedom and constraints.
