While it is lauded by most of the society, Kantipur at times fails to bring forth the important news to the people. It has always been a pro-party, pro-leaders media house. The headline with the news about Girija quitting smoking made me laugh. Whoa…Kantipur, congratulations! Girija quits smoking,so, what? What is the big deal about his habits? I ponder…

Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala formally declared that he has quit smoking permanently on the occasion of the World Anti- Smoking Day, on Wednesday. Earlier, the Prime Minister had said he would not smoke in public places, on the same occasion when he was Prime Minister.
Give me a break Kantipur.We don't visit your site to read news like this. No doubt, we get many more informative news from your site, but news about Girija quitting smoking making to the headlines is crazy. Come on, there are thousands of people who are starting and quitting smoking around the country. Couldn't you find some other news that could be of importance?
May be the media has no work now. Maoist rebels have stopped attacking. So, where to find the news? Isn't it true Kantipur? Agreed, I used a lot of information from Kantipur, but I was pretty sad to see news like this in your headlines.
If you cannot find news items, do search around. There are a range of social issues which has been inflicting pain and torture to thousands of people in Nepal. Write something on that. But please, give me a break from news like this. What do you people think about this? Do you agree with me?
