Exactly a month ago to this date, I returned from Nepal, where I had attended a workshop for South Asian Journalists on Climate Change and the Environment.
It was my first time to Nepal, so I was curious to see what the country was like especially since it had a population slightly higher than my city, Bangalore. The country, when compared to India, does seem to be stuck in a time warp –just by appearance with really old buildings and its third-hand Maruti 800s roaming around as taxis. However, after spending a week there, it births a lingering hunger and thirst to be in nature’s presence. This hunger sets in when you land in Nepal and all you see are the mountains.
