MANILA, Saco- Indonesia.com — Di babak kedua Kejuaraan Catur Kontinental Asia Piala Manny Pacquiao 2013, Minggu (19/5/2013) di Pasay City, Manila, Filipina, tiga pecatur remaja putri Indonesia berjaya. WFM Dewi Ardiani Anastasia Citra (19), Nadya Anggraeni Mukmin (17), dan WFM Dita Karenza (13) masing-masing mendapat satu poin setelah mengalahkan lawan-lawannya.

Citra yang memiliki rating 2155 itu mengalahkan Sharmin Shirin Sultana (2005) dari Banglades. Lawan Citra memang memiliki rating lebih rendah dan belum memiliki gelar. Citra memang lebih diunggulkan di babak kedua ini. Yang juga menggembirakan, Nadya (1854) berhasil mengalahkan WIM Bernadette Galas dari Filipina yang memiliki rating lebih tinggi, 2045.

Adapun Dita (1821) menaklukkan Jedara Docena (2019) dari Filipina. Citra, Nadya, dan Dita kalah di babak pertama, Sabtu lalu. Ada enam pecatur putri yang diberangkatkan ke kejuaraan ini. Tiga yang lain adalah WIM Medina Warda Aulia, WIM Chelsie Monica Sihite, dan Yemi Jelsen. Sayang, ketiganya kalah di babak kedua ini.

Medina dan Yemi juga kalah di babak pertama, tapi Chelsie menang. Itu berarti, empat dari enam pecatur putri mengantongi satu poin dalam dua babak ini. Adapun dua pecatur lain masih nol. Masih ada tujuh babak yang harus dimainkan. Kesempatan masih terbuka luas untuk menambah poin.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
