I have just returned from a four day work trip to Nepal. The people were on strike everyday due to fuel hike. The 3rd day I was there, their Prime Minister was asked to resign. He said he would. That day the strike ceased. At the end of the day, he changed his mind. So,the people resumed their strike again.
Before arriving in Kathmandu, I wondered what Nepal would be like now that the people had butted the BAD King out of the way.
Since the last time I was there in 2004, Nepal had become poorer. The touristy feeling is lost. Everyone looked depressed. Shops are empty. Lots of Chinese goods.
I walked around a bit and captured some shots. Only when I looked at them did I notice that so many issues cropped up in those pixs – police state, globalisation, public transportation, fuel hike, women and agriculture.
I modified the photos because I was tired of the typical looking ones.
Blog posts had been scarce because I was away. I am back now.
