My roommate Kath, during our trip to Kathmandu in January 2008.
Kath got to hold the candles and I got to play with the lighter.
We had only just got the candles lit, when the power came back on.

Thanks Doug. The pic I took moments earlier is the same but no lights on (that is because the power was off) It was out for 3 hours, twice a day and I think 6 days a week. Not enough rainfall to keep power generation up to requirements over the winter.
Bizarre for us but not a problem to the locals.

namaste to kath and sue. well, the days have not changed so far friends. we, these days have load shedding of 35 hours a week. electricity authority said that they were bound to impose this power cut due to low power generation in kulekhani project ( one of the main project that generate electricity) and distruction of transmission line, which is imported from india. the transmission line was distructed my recent flooding in east terai.

Namaste Ramesh, we do not know or appreciate how lucky we are here in New Zealand.
I still would love to be there in Nepal though.

Hi Ramesh, It is an experience not to be forgotten but in the two weeks I had there, I did not experience much at all.
Hope to be back next year for a couple of years (at least) to immerse myself in it completely. Everything is so much simpler yet can be difficult. I know after two weeks I was very much at peace with the world and wanted to stay forever.
Would do a lot of people a lot of good to experience it and give them an appreciation for what they do have and do not realise how well off they are.
