Fruit and vegetable market at Pipra- a small village that lies between Dhansuha and Mahottari. The road that connects these two districts is so bad that it makes people traveling in vehicles sick.

Jaleshwar, Mahottari

Holy dip: A man sought respite from the heat by taking bath in the pond at the back of the Jaleshwar Mahadev Temple.

24 June 2013: Journalists have the best office building in Jaleshwar, headquarters of Mahottari district. Mahottari chapter of the Federation of Nepali Journalists constructed their office building on land provided by the district administration office last year. President Yadav inaugurated the building. Rest of the office buildings in this town look utterly depressing (the Municipality Office building should top that unenviable list).

This is my first trip to Jaleshwar (Mahottari). I went to a nearby village (Khaira). There I found a man who had run away from Nepal Police service just before the conflict ended. Afterward he tried his luck in foreign employment but the work he was offered in Malaysia turned out to be different than what his agent had described in Kathmandu. He came back quickly. His brother went. Now he is trying to go as well. May be after Dasain, he said. There was a photo of his father, a Nepal Police ASI who died a few years back while in service, hanging on the wall of a makeshift shop that he maintained near his house.
