A Nepalese Story

“Rural existence in the Himalaya is hard. Terraced fields must be carved out of steep foothills; the growing season is short. In an isolated Nepal, a feudal hierarchy simply made things even harder. When the country opened in 1951, foreign aid poured in, but that didn’t prevent a Maoist insurgency taking root, toppling the King and transforming Nepal into a secular republic. The fourth tale is about a society struggling to survive.”
