A House For an Unknown Nepali Citizen

Ideas and Images

I was aghast to behold this photo in the front page of Kantipur daily few days back.I silently thanked young and energetic photojournalist Shailendra Kharel whom I briefly befriended before his departure to Nepalgunj few weeks back. He was full with enthusiasm but a bit frustrated with working environment.

This photo, for me, epitomizes the situation of our nation. They say, a pic speaks thousand words. Kudos to you Shailendra for grasping the rare moment and depicting what words might have failed!
