I dreamed a dream that tickled pink, Exactly in the manner how you think. Where we longed for nothing and were satisfied, Without caring what world thinks outside. Many a year has passed and gone, You know and I know nothings’ been lost and everythings’ won. Traversed many paths my friend, soon – very soon […]
Walk in the Mountains -Hitesh Karki We kept on waiting for the plane to arrive. While half of the group including myself had already landed in this beautiful place, half were supposed to come in the next flight and hence the wait in the runway. The clouds would not just allow the flying machine pass […]
If one were to be completely honest with his or her own self, I am sure the recent days must have come as a pleasant surprise. The papers don’t look the same for they now have another tale to tell, stories of how what seemed like a never event is soon to materialize. Its not […]

‘So what is it that you will remember about this place once you go back’. This happened to be the question I had posed to my American guest en route to airport on board a Toyota Hiace van as he was about to bid farewell to this city.
