Memories of Days Past – III

Memories of Days Past - IIIFirst four years of my Kathmandu stay was in my aunt’s (Phupu’s) house in Dilli Bazar. During the final days of grade five, my aunt’s husband passed away and it was difficult time for all of us. As per brahmin tradition we were not supposed to see her until after a year of her husband’s death. I hated the practice for two reasons. First, I did not know where to stay during the sixth grade.

I remember the day when mandales used to loot and kill people during the heyday of the Panchayat era.
