Nisha Adhikari’s flight to Tikapur Mahotsav

On her flight to Tikapur, Nepali actress Nisha Adhikari explains how thick-skinned we have become to problems and accept them as normal stuffs.

At the time of flight the aircraft she boarded had a technical issue. Aircrafts are very sensitive modes of transportation and the aircrafts in Nepal are usually purchased in second hand market. Nepal has a very bad track record in terms of aircraft safety. Although most of the aircraft accidents are blamed to the climate, technical problems in aircrafts and human errors are the major reasons behind such crashes.

Here is how Nisha explains the situation:

Now this happened to me the first time ever!!! Boarded a flight to Tikapur n was bout to take off but suddenly the aircraft went back to da parking n the air-hostess announced a tiny technical default and it would take off within 20 min and we were supposed to sit patiently. Looked out of the window and a guy was moving his hands frantically (Most probably explaining the “tiny” error). The most amazing part was we all were so cool about it..i even managed a power nap!!! LOL .

Finally landed in Nepalgunj, passed Bardiya Nikunj on the way to Tikapur, ate karnaliko machha and attended Tikapur Mahotsab for a while!! Tom s going to be fun at mahotsab…looking fwd!!!

Let’s wish the end of such technical problems in aircrafts.
