    1. Thanks Manav for your kind suggestion. But as you too know, its hard to even get natural disaster related news from the rural areas of Nepal mainly from upper himalayan. The news comes days after the incident after district headquarters inform the press. Regarding the big incidents like Seti flood, Mahakali flood, Nepal-Sikkim earthquake which gains worldwide coverage, are immediately and timely updated. In such cases, the videos and photos are posted. It is like you who are always making this site alive by passing details about the incidents in your area. But definitely we will be putting photos too :)
