Battle of the Mag Covers

When the whole world is filled with the colors of FIFA World Cup, how could Nepal stay behind? Even though Nepali football team doesn’t play World Cup or we can just say, hasn’t qualified for the WC yet;¬† there’s no stopping for Nepali football fans to cheer for their favorite teams in all the ways possible. Nepal has +8:48 hours of time difference than Brazil, the host of the WC 2014. That means all the matches are played when it’s late at night in Nepal but wait, does that bother the crazy fans? Well, hell no!!

Like all other media, weekly and monthly magazines too have got the football fever. Here are some of the leading magazines  with their covers inspired by the FIFA WC.

First on the list is the weekly supplement of The Kathmandu Post – Movers & Shakers (M&S) with the beautiful Paramita Rana, Jyotsna Yogi and Krisha Shahi on the cover. The girls look rough, dirty and all muddy but still they look super cute, don’t they? The cover is photographed by Kishor Kayastha, wardrobe designed by Subexya Bhadel, hair and make up are done by Meena Kayastha and Bigen Thapa. Here’s the cover:
