meeting the prime minister
well, not exactly. i did get my first picture of madhav kumar nepal yesterday though, on the show floor of info tech 2010 in kathmandu where i was doing a story at with ahmad. turned out makunay (as in his nepali initials) was the guest-of-honour. really charming of him to look into my lens. maybe he was just surprised that this photographer was not jostling with the rest of the press for choice angles.
no surprises here. with the murder of rajesh mandal, a maoist leader in parsa the day before, security was tight as it could be. maybe it’s just like this everytime the pm goes somewhere.
