Karishma Manandhar Anger
Karishma Manandhar is undoubtedly one of the most popular actresses in the Nepali film industry. The actress, who made her debut in the film Santaan at the age of 14, has been a part of the industry for three decades now. After the Great Earthquake struck on April 25, Manandhar realised the extent of the calamity that had been inflicted upon the people around the country and started engaging in relief operations just a week after the disaster. Till date, the actress has reached Kavre three times–taking along with her relief material–to Sindupalchok and to most of the quake-affected areas around the Kathmandu Valley. And while she is at it, she has been trying to help the victims overcome their sorrow with her support and kind words. I was worried about my daughter. Later on, I came to know that she had already run away. I kept on calling her, but I only found her when I reached downstairs. I felt relieved and we walked out towards open space. I could feel the aftershocks for a long time after that. It was terrifying.
