Abstract: “Look for the Maoists when you go Nepal, ” says a friend and college mate in October 2007, just after I received confirmation that I will be heading to the mountainous South Asian country. I laughed him off, expecting that getting close to the guerillas would not be easy at all. I arrived in Nepal 18th December 2007. Two weeks later, the interim government announced that elections would be held in April. In March, Tibetan protests broke out around the capital as I scrambled to cover them. By April, the elections happened and I was with the Prime Minister when he voted. A photograph I took – symbolising the waning fate of the monarchy – became the cover for an annual photo book in Nepal. By May, I had shared a room with a People Liberation Army soldier, and ate from the same plate. As I finished this report, I covered the riots that broke out after the nation was declared republic.
