I remained alone and I continued walking humming this song: Poon Hilai ma, phool jasti soltini rakhe manai ma! [I met a girl beautiful like a flower and put her in my heart]. May be I was hoping to find a soltini in Poon Hill. I had already missed the sun rise but the desire to be at the top constantly kept me pushing up. I reached there, in about half an hour, and saw the fabulous Dhawalagiri Annapurna range. That was really awesome. I kept watching Himals, so clean and shining because of the sunlight, for several minutes from the view tower. The view of other hills was so fascinating.

    a complaint about jet airways indifference to the tourist is just the tip of the iceberg. the entire society of bureaucrats and the immigration authority of nepal are a gang of thieves that treat the visitor and foreigner as a cash cow. the entire international community should bandha nepal with its greedy amoral way of being. visa fines reap this greedy bureaucracy of enormous anounts of money with impunity and this himalayan society is so crippled by official corruption and thievery and impunity that you cannot even maintain a good electrical power supply. blackouts are the norm and even your crown prince can run amok and wipe out your royal family and 20000 insurgents must be murdered. 24 amoral parties you’ve got to be kidding. dr adam rosenblatt

    you have lost the nepotistic gp koirala whom i personally met. your whole society is run by amoral oligarchs and hidden royalists and feudalists. .ex pm pushpa kamal dahal prachanda certainly has an uphill battle and it will take more than an andalan 3 to move the minds of your bureaucrats and body politic with its warring dozens of parties. greedy power elites are the norm that abuse the word democracy which they know nothing about. it will probably take a FEW MORE YEARS TO UNDO ALL THE DAMAGE TO THIS BEAUTIFUL HIMALAYAN KINGDOM OF NEPOTISM AND GREED. HINDUISM AND BUDDHISM ARE CORRUPTED IN THIS SOCIETY AND ABJECT POVERTY IGNORANCE AND GREED ARE ENDEMIC. sad sad sad
