Here we are in Kathmandu, trying to figure out what to do. We have to get to Lahan by tomorrow on Film Shooting , but news of bandas are closing in from all sides. Today the Tarai is closed, tomorrow Kathmandu will be blocked.

We have to get out of this city today because tomorrow it will be shut, but we can't head east because the east is still shut.

In 2065 there were 158 days of shutdowns here in eastern Nepal. According to nepalbandh.com there were more bandas in 2008 all over Nepal than there were days in a year. With the constitution-writing process just starting, you can be sure that 2066 will see even more.The President of FNCCI based on their exercise stated the cost at Rs1.8 billion per day.

    What does all this mean? I need to learn more about what is going on there. My Mom lived there for about nine months years ago. It was wonderful and difficult.
