'With every journey I embark on,
I discover new things about Nepal
and her beautiful people.
A deep sense of realization as to how
I have taken Nepal for granted many times.
And it is only through travel will I unlearn
what has been fed to me.
Recently, I have been walking
the western hills of Nepal,
talking to people and taking pictures.
A few of these villages are quite remote,
The nature here is a feast to the eyes
and the people are holy
- innocent, welcoming and resilient.
Amidst all hardship of poverty,
years of neglect,
social ills and unfriendly geography,
they still prevail with their
heartfelt stories of daily struggles
and there hopes and dreams.
What will follow is my experience
of talking and listening to their stories
Some laughter shared,
some songs sung
some tears shed.'
