Wood Carvings in Nepal

0

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                            

 

Woodcarving in Nepal has been most highly developed in the Kathmandu Valley, which comprises Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur districts. These three are home to the world’s rarest wooden art. Perhaps nowhere else in the world are the carvings as sophisticated, dramatic and extensively incorporated in construction. Even the name, “Kathmandu,” indicates the unique focus of this area. Derived from the Sanskrit word kastamandap, whichis the conjunction of kasta, meaning wood and mandapa, meaning temple or hall, Kathmandu means “temple made of wood.”

At the western edge of Kathmandu’s Durbar Square one finds the structure known as Kastamandap, the oldest surviving timber structure in the valley, its three tiers of pagoda roof rising fifty feet above a long veranda. The structure dates back 800 years, and legend tells how it was constructed entirely from the trunk of a single sal tree(Shorea robusta). Yet with the extent of wooden temples and iconography throughout Kathmandu and vicinities, a more accurate definition of “Kathmandu” would be “city of temples made of wood.”

Temple pillars, Deity icons and palace portals display the epitome of local carving skill. Apart from these, the predominant use of elaborate woodwork is in doorways and windows of the wealthy, though even common households strive to embellish their structures. Usually, frames of doors and windows are made of hardwood–a painstaking job. Hardwoods are first seasoned for a number of years so that the doors and windows can last for centuries. Frames are primarily carved with floral designs. The doors themselves are usually made of softwood and carved with images of Gods and Goddesses. But wherever the doors are exposed to harsh conditions, they are made of hardwood as well. Some are decorated with the eyes of Buddha. Others have designs of the traditional religious water pot, kalash, fish and flowers, all symbols of good fortune.

Apart from many standard options, the preferred ornamental designs are the lotus window, mesh, chariot, peacock and oriel windows. Windows in Nepal serve a higher function than those of Western architecture. They are not mere inlets for air and light, but are portals of peace and beauty. Sculpted upon them are images of Gods and Goddesses who are expected to protect residents within from evil forces. Certain windows are not even meant for looking through. Their main function is artistic and symbolic. As such, many styles of window do not open. The option to peer out is found mostly in balcony windows, through which modest and reserved women can view the happenings in the city without becoming involved. Such windows are symbols of higher social and economic status of those people.

The Nepalese woodcarving tools are simple and traditional: chisel, adze, handsaw, wooden mallet and jack plane. Craftsmen embellish wood for interior decoration as well as for exterior use. For centuries, a particular caste among the Nepalese Newars, called “Silpakar,” has dutifully preserved the country’s woodcarving heritage. Lately, however, peoples of other castes have joined the occupation. Originally supported and encouraged by the Malla kings, the art is now supported primarily through purchases made by Western tourists.

Patan is known as city of FINE ARTS in the world.

Most Silpakars are still engaged themselves in various aspects of the woodcarving industry. Silpakars are prominent at Jombahal, in Lalitpur, and out of 700 Silpakar families in Bugmati, 300 operate their own woodcarving shops. Om Krishna Silpakar,  the owner of Om Wood Carving & Jk wood carving,run by Anjana Tamrakar  (9841750785 0),purna wood Carving  at Patan  are  such  a family.Wood carving Industries  estd in 1967,by Moti Lal silpakar  ,at Patan industrial Estate is  a pioneer wood carvings exporters in international market  who introduce a wood carvings business  in Nepal.

 

Most Silpakars, feels an abiding love of and responsibility to his tradition. “om krishna silpakar  proud that I have protected the wood carving industry started by my forefathers,” he said. “I have been able to introduce Nepal to some 40 to 50 countries through the exports of my woodwork. This gives me great satisfaction. During my childhood, I would be thrilled when tourists visited. I still remember fondly when King Tribhuvan and Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru visited our workshop.”

Of late, modern construction has threatened to usurp traditional architecture. Yet the old-style carvings still lure tourists. In an effort to preserve existing ancient works, the Bhaktapur municipality has strictly prohibited the demolition of traditional buildings for replacement with modern ones.

History relates how woodcarving in Nepal developed in Kathmandu Valley largely during the Malla dynasty, which was founded in 1350 by Jayasthiti Malla. The Malla period continued for almost 600 years and was a glorious era in the history of Nepal. Mallas developed trade and commerce, industry, religion and culture. They reached a high level of perfection in the fields of art and architecture. John Sanday in his book Monuments of the Kathmandu Valley writes, “The traditional buildings that are mostly in evidence throughout the valley today represent the craft and architecture of the Malla dynasty, which started in the fourteenth century, survived the early Shah period, but rapidly faded during the Rana era.” The Rana period started in Nepal with the rise of Jang Bahadur Rana in 1846 and the system crumbled down in 1951. One of the reasons why the artistic and architectural activity flourished during the Malla period was that the kings protected such activity. Whatever architecture Nepal has to be proud of today is not from modern construction but solely due to the beautiful art cultivated by the Malla regime.

Today, things are not all favorable for the Nepalese craftsmen. Woodcarvers have their own challenges to overcome. Ramlal Silpakar complains, “The depletion of forests has created a shortage of sal trees, which take at least a hundred years to mature in the forest. It is not within the means of many of the craftsmen to afford the skyrocketing prices of sal wood.” Sita Maiya adds, “Lack of incentive from the side of the state is also a serious problem. In the past, the carving industry prospered because of protection from the state. But now, who cares for the industry?” Ram Bahadur, who has been in carving for generations, states, “We have to stand and make a living on our own. Prospects for training are limited. Many craftsmen families who used to carve wonders have abandoned their craft.” And Shyam Sakya, a prominent woodcarvings businessman says that the domestic market has been whittled down to just the affluent.

A unique success in wood arts is the Hotel Dwarikas, which is the lifetime achievement of late Dwarika Das Shrestha. The hotel is the manifestation of his effort to restore and preserve a culture and a heritage. Shrestha rescued ancient carvings from demolition sites and commissioned new works from local craftsmen, all of which are maintained and displayed in the hotel, which he created to be a “living museum.” Dwarikas (www.dwarikas.com) is now dynamically managed by Shrestha’s wife, Ambica,

Prices increased in constructions materials

0

 

                                                 

 

Prices of major  construction materials:bricks, gravels,cement, sand and iron rods, have increased by  20 percent in the domestic market in the last three months, as post-earhquake reconstruction works have fuelled demand for these products.

Each tipper (265 cubic feet) of sand now costs Rs30,000. The product used to cost Rs25,000 around three months ago, according to Narayan Paudel, owner of Jayamata Pathivara Suppliers, a shop located at Kalanki that sells sand, gravels and bricks.

Prices of cement, which commands 28 percent of the construction budget on average, have also gone up by up to 10 percent in the domestic market in the last three months.

Nepal-made Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) now costs Rs900-Rs920 per 50-kg sack, according to Bhim KC of Ramjanaki Hardware Centre at Kalanki. The product was available for Rs850 per 50-kg sack three months ago.

Price of Nepal-made Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC), on the other hand, which hovered around Rs730-Rs750 per 50-kg sack three months ago, has now jumped to Rs800.

Prices of construction materials are going up lately as post-earthquake reconstruction and other construction works are moving ahead at a faster pace, according to the Federation of Contractors’ Associations of Nepal (FCAN).

“May, June and July are peak season for construction works in Nepal, as government-led construction works rise during this time of the year. Also, demand for construction materials has gone up lately due to post-quake reconstruction works. But supply of many of these materials has not been able to catch up with the demand. Hence, the price hike,” FCAN President Sharad Kumar Gauchan said.

Because of these reasons, price of iron rod has also gone up by around 3 percent to Rs77 per kg. Around two weeks ago, price of iron rod stood at Rs75 per kg, according to Rabi Maharjan, an accountant at New Siddhi Hardware Centre in Kalanki.

Despite this, prices of other construction materials like bricks and gravels have remained stable in the last three months.

Each tipper (265 cubic feet) of gravel used to cost Rs30,000 three months ago. This price has not changed over the period of last three months. This is the same for bricks.

Bricks of ‘Quality No. 1’ used to cost Rs16-Rs17 per unit three months ago, while bricks of ‘Quality No. 2’ used to cost Rs13-Rs14 per unit. Similarly, bricks of ‘Quality No. 3’ used to cost Rs9 per unit three months ago. Prices of different varieties of bricks have so far remained unchanged, according to traders of construction materials.

Iron & steel industry is a largtest construction material manufecturing industry,provides large numbers of eploymoyment oppertunities  in Nepal.This industry produce mainly

iron rods,TMT bar ,wire rods,galvanised sheets,roofings sheets,GI wires,nails,nutbolts,steel pipes,GI pipes,gavion wires,wire mesh, & metal products.

Raw materials :  ,like billet,wire rods,HR sheets ,CR sheets are mainly imported  from India.

 

According to prducers demand is 200000 MT permonth,domestic industr  can meet by 70%

 

“Construction works — from houses to big projects — have picked up significantly across the country at present which has swelled the demand for construction materials, including that of iron and steel,” said Dhurba Kumar Shrestha, former president of Nepal Steel Rolling Mills Association (NSRMA), adding that a large number of steel and rods was imported in the market from India following production constraint from domestic manufacturers due to rise in load-shedding.

Four months’ data
Year Import Export
2015-2016 Rs 13.03 billion Rs 1.1 billion
2016-2017 Rs 29.63 billion Rs 1.2 billion

Domestic manufacturers have also said that the current surge in import is of temporary nature and would come down once reconstruction works of houses, heritages and projects affected by the earthquake last year draws to an end.

“The demand for construction materials suddenly skyrocketed after the government lifted ban on construction of new buildings and houses that was imposed after the earthquake,” said Kiran Sakhwa, vice president of NSRMA, adding that the market share of Indian iron and steel has gone up following excessive demand. Otherwise, Sakha said that domestic production is sufficient to meet the normal demand of the commodities.

There are 16 iron and steel mills operating in the country. According to Sakha, the annual domestic demand of iron and steels is around 700,000 metric tonnes and domestic manufacturers are able to meet this demand.

“Manufacturers can now run their factories in full-fledged manner as the government has reduced the power cut drastically. This will directly increase our production and contribute towards substituting imports from India,” Sakha said.

According to entrepreneurs, the demand for iron and steel is increasing by 20 per cent annually.

 PROBLEMS & CHALLENGES :There are many problems in this industry .politicals inestability & intereferences ,iregular &  low quality Power supply ,lack of skilled manpowers,strikes,old technology,transportation problems .our industry couldnot comepete in pricing with Indian industry,due to tax subisdy on imports on raw materials & export of finished materials like in India.The cost of productions is less in India due to tax subsidy & large scale productions.Industry should have productions friendly labour act & propers supply of raw materials.

Quality & developments:Nepali producers are accepting advance technology .only plains bar was produced before,Now TMT bar being produced in 500 grade through water pressure & thermomechanically treated.TOR steel of 415 grade   was  widely used in Nepal ,some years ago.now it is widely used 500 grade.Big consstruction projects & hydro power projects need 32 mm iron rod,These rods are imported from India by big constructions company.

Nepal can make 30-40 mm iron rods ,if the actual demands & time is fixed.

Tips to know date expired CEMENTS

 

 

 

उपभोक्ताले सिमेन्ट किन्दा सबैभन्दा पहिले उत्पादन मिति थाहा पाउन यसको ब्याच नम्बर हेर्नुपर्छ। कम्पनीले उत्पादन गर्दा बोरामा वर्षमा ५२ हप्ताअनुसार ५२ वटा ब्याच नम्बर राखेको हुन्छ। २०७३ वैशाख १ गतेखि ७ गते सम्मको समयमा उत्पादित सिमेन्टमा २०७३/१ लेखिएको हुन्छ। त्यस्तै यदि बोरामा २०७२/५२ लेखिएको छ भने त्यो सिमेन्ट २०७२ चैतको अन्तिम हप्तामा उत्पादित हो भन्ने बुझ्नुपर्छ। 

 

 

कुनै पनि भौतिक संरचना निर्माण गर्दा सिमेन्ट आवश्यक हुन्छ। यसको गुणस्तर र मात्राले संरचनाको बलियोपन निर्धारण गर्छ।

 

अन्य खाद्य सामग्री जस्तै सिमेन्ट पनि उत्पादन भएको निश्चित अवधिभित्र उपयोग गरी सक्नुपर्छ। यसको पनि मिति र प्रयोग गर्ने अवधि सकिन्छ। धेरैले यसको बारेमा ख्याल नराख्दा निर्माण गरिएका संरचनाहरु कमजोर हुने गरेको छ।

 

हाल नेपाली बजारमा स्वदेशी र विदेशी गरी झण्डै ३० भन्दा बढी कम्पनीले सिमेन्टको उत्पादन गरी रहेका छन्। यसरी उत्पादन गरिएका सिमेन्टहरु मध्ये धेरैमा दैनिक उपभोग्य गर्ने सामानमा जस्तो प्रत्यक्ष रुपमा उत्पादित र म्याद सकिने मिति लेखिएको हुँदैन। तर यसमा ध्यान दिएर खोजियो भने सो मिति थाहा पाउन सकिन्छ।

 

 

सिमेन्टको उत्पादन मिति र प्रयोग गरिसक्नुपर्ने अवधि कसरी थाहा पाउने?

 

कम्पनीले सिमेन्ट उत्पादनको समयमा बोरामा ब्याच नम्बर उल्लेख गर्छ। यही ब्याच नम्बरका आधारमा सिमेन्टको उत्पादन र प्रयोगका लागि अन्तिम मिति पत्ता लगाउन सकिने नापतौल तथा गुणस्तर विभागका निर्देशक विश्व बाबु पुडासैनीले बताए।

 

उपभोक्ताले सिमेन्ट किन्दा सबैभन्दा पहिले उत्पादन मिति थाहा पाउन यसको ब्याच नम्बर हेर्नुपर्छ। कम्पनीले उत्पादन गर्दा बोरामा वर्षमा ५२ हप्ताअनुसार ५२ वटा ब्याच नम्बर राखेको हुन्छ।

 

जस्तै २०७३ वैशाख १ गतेखि ७ गते सम्मको समयमा उत्पादित सिमेन्टमा २०७३/१ लेखिएको हुन्छ। त्यस्तै यदि बोरामा २०७२/५२ लेखिएको छ भने त्यो सिमेन्ट २०७२ चैतको अन्तिम हप्तामा उत्पादित हो भन्ने बुझ्नुपर्छ।

 

सिमेन्ट सही तरिकाले स्टोर गरेर राखिएको छ भने उत्पादित मितिको ६ महिनाभित्रमा प्रयोग गर्न सकिने गुणस्तर विभागले जनाएको छ। त्यस्तै, सिमेन्ट किन्दा ब्याचनम्बर हेरेर पछिल्लो समयमा उत्पादन गरिएको किन्नु राम्रो हुने पुडासैनीले बताए। जहिले पनि ब्याचनम्बर हेरेर मात्र सिमेन्ट किन्ने हो भने म्याद सकिएको सिमेन्ट लिनबाट जोगिन सकिन्छ। यसका लागि उपभोक्ता आफैं सचेत हुनुपर्छ।

 

त्यस्तै किन्ने बेलामा पसलले सिमेन्ट कसरी स्टोर गरेर राखेको छ भन्नेमा पनि ध्यान दिनुपर्ने विभागको सुझाव छ। यो कुराको सचेतना आवश्यक रहेको पुडासैनीले बताए। चिसो ठाउँमा राखिएको सिमेन्टमा ओस आउने र डल्ला पर्ने हुनसक्छ।

 

नेपाल गुणस्तर चिन्ह प्राप्त नेपाली सिमेन्ट सबैलाई विभागले ३३ ग्रेडको मान्यता प्राप्त प्रमाणपत्र दिएको छ। कम्पनीले पनि उत्पादन समयमा उक्त सिमेन्टमा गुणस्तर पुरा भए नभएको परीक्षण गर्नुपर्छ। यदि कम्पनीले तोकिएको मापदण्ड पुरा नगरेमा ईजाजतपत्र खारेज समेत गर्न सकिने विभागले जानकारी दिएको छ।

 

यसअघि विभागले २०७२ चैत महिनादेखि उत्पादित  सबै सिमेन्टको बोरामा स्पष्ट रुपमा उत्पादन मिति र प्रयोग गर्नुपर्ने अन्तिम मिति राख्ने बताएपनि अहिलेसम्म यो लागू् गर्न सकेको छैन। विभागका महानिर्देशक पुडासैनीले प्राविधिक समस्याको कारणले चैत महिनादेखि लागू गर्न नसकेपनि अब आउने आर्थिक वर्ष देखि लागू गर्ने तयारी रहेको बताए।

Nawalparwasi :A Biggest Cement City

 

Cement factories are springing up in Nawalparasi due to favourable investment environment. The district alone houses 5 cement factories running on high capacities. Nepal has a total of 47 cement factories.

Palpa, which shares a border with Nawalparasi, contains the largest limestone mine in the country. This allows cement factories located in Nawalparasi close proximity with the mine, located only 30-35 kilometres away. The close proximity allows factories to get their primary raw material easily.

Additionally, Nawalparasi’s closesness with the Indian border makes importing of other raw materials easy.

“Nawalparasi is the perfect place for cement factories due to a litany of reasons,” said Bharat Thapa, president of Federation of Nepali Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI), “It is close to the Indian border, it is located in the central part of the country and although Palpa contains the limestone mine, factories cannot grow there due to physical adversities of the Hilly region, which ultimately sends all the lime to the closest factory place: Nawalparasi.”

Another strong factor in Nawalparasi attracting investors is the price of land, which is low compared to other areas like Rupandehi, Chitwan or Makwanpur. There is an abundance of cheap land outside of residential areas in Nawalparasi.

Major cement factories such as CG Cement, Sarvottan Cement, Palpa Cement receive endorsements from district locals as the factories are located far away from residential areas.

Furthermore, these factories use modern technology to reduce noise and air pollution, bolstering their support from locals.

Last year, Hongshi Shivam Cement of Nawalparasi produced six thousand tonnes of cement daily during winter. With further improvements to its infrastructure, the same factory is aiming to double its output within two years. According to the factory director, Dipak Jha, the factor was established with investments from Chinese and Nepali investors worth Rs36 billion.

Similarly, Hiranganj Cement is also planning to expand its capacity from 1,200 tonnes per day to 1,800 tonnes per day. CG Cement is looking to improve its capacity from 1,200 tonnes per day to 2,400 tonnes while Palpa Cement will soon output 2,000 tonnes of cement daily.

According to Thapa, foreign companies such as India’s Reliance, Nigeria’s Dangote and China’s Houchin Construction, have started buying land in Nawalparasi to build cement factories.

Nepal: Annapurna Cements has started test production at its new plant in the Sunsari-Morang Industrial Corridor. The US$5.8m plant has a production capacity of 12000bags/day of Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC), according to the Kathmandu Post. Commercial production at the site is expected to start by the end of June 2017. The plant will import raw materials from India and it plans to sell its products initially in Provinces One, Two and Three.

Published in Global Cement News

Nepal: Data from the Nepal Rastra Brank shows that the value of cement imports have doubled year-on-year to US$155m in the first 10 months of the current financial year from US$77m in the same period in 2015 – 2016. The surge in imports has coincided with a fall in the capacity utilisation rate of most cement plants to 60%, according to the Himalayan Times newspaper. The fall in local production has been blamed on difficulties importing clinker, coal and other raw materials. Reduced electricity supplies have also affected production. The Cement Manufacturers Association of Nepal hopes that, if these impediments are reduced, the country could become self reliant in clinker within two years.

Published in Global Cement News

Nepal: Hongshi Shivam Cement’s Sardi cement plant project in Nalwalparasi is likely to be delayed due to slow progress by the government in building a road to a nearby limestone quarry. The project was due to start production in May 2017 but the slow rate of investment by the Chinese firm’s state partner has caused this completion estimate to be revised, according to the Kathmandu Post. Other infrastructure requirements for the project that are slowing it down include a 40km road to the site and an electricity substation

6 April 2017

Nepal: Arghakhanchi Cement has launched Arghakhanchi MP OPC Cement in new waterproof packaging. The cement producer says that the new packaging will protect the cement from moisture and prevent leakage of cement, according the Kathmandu Post. The new bags are also intended to ensure a standard weight for the product. The company plans to increase its production capacity from its plant at Mainahiya, Rupandehi to 60,000 bags/day from the end of 2017.

Published in Global Cement News

Nepal: Jagdamba Cement said that it has rebranded its Jagdamba Ultra Premium OPC Cement product with new packaging and appointed Bhusal Dahal as its brand ambassador. The cement producer added in a statement that its products can now compete with any international product available in Nepal, according to the República newspaper. It added that it has received NS 49, ISO 9001:2008, ISO 9001:2015/ISO 14001:2015 certifications as well as letter of appreciation 2014 and 2015 in NS Quality Awards.

Published in Global Cement News

Nepal: Data from the Trade and Export Promotion Centre (TEPC) has shown that the value of imports of clinker has increased by nearly six times year-on-year to US$84m in the first six months of the Nepalese fiscal year to mid-January 2017 from US$14m in the same period in the previous year. Dhurba Thapa, president of the local Cement Manufacturers Association, told the Kathmandu Post that the surge in clinker imports was due to a market correction following a ban on exports imposed by India in the previous year. He added that imports of clinker from India account for around 35 – 40% of Nepal’s total consumption.

Nepal: Government plans to grade domestic brands of cement have been delayed due to administrative issues at the Nepal Bureau of Standards and Metrology (NBSM). The NBSM prepared a draft for the certification in the autumn of 2016 but it has failed to approve it internally before forwarding it to the Nepal Standard Council, according to the Himalayan Times. The delay has been blamed on the busy schedule of NBSM employees. Under the plan, cement produced by local companies will be certified under three quality categories: 33-grade, 43-grade and 53-grade cement.

Nepal: The value of clinker imported from India into Nepal has risen by 674% year-on-year to US$60.5m in the first four months of the local financial year that started on 16 July 2016 from US$7.8m from the same period in the previous year, according to the Trade and Export Promotion Centre. Dhruba Raj Thapa, president of Cement Manufacturers Association of Nepal, in comments to the Himalayan Times attributed the surge to a lack of raw materials, including limestone, which has forced producers to import clinker from India. He added that government restrictions on opening new mines have restricted the local industry’s ability to produce its own

Low Quality Construction, WHY?

0

Most of the construction projects tendered by Government have not produced quality construction . The main reason  for this are :

  • There is lack of favorable environment to bid in low amount.
  • Contractor make all the bills even without completing the projects. Still, they make 10% profit.
  • Contractor should give commissions to Govt concerned Authority before getting payments.
  • Concerned Authority never checks the quality of constructions. They approve without detailed and quality inspection.
  • There is lack of transparency to local consumer. They are not given any authority to see the statement of the project by contractor.
  • They start the projects like road constructions at the end of fiscal year in rainy season. They undertake the project just to earn money illegally through corruptions. This happens mainly in blacktopping of the roads
