Recollections of the peace rally in Kathmandu, 7 May 2010

I received a text from a dear friend, a day in advance of the scheduled Peace rally. Like the SMS asked me to, I dutifully forwarded it to two like-minded people; I never was going to show up though! Turns out I did go rallying, tagging along with me a few other like-minded friends. The influx of people on the road, donning whites and carrying the Nepalese flag, was incentive enough to join. A short discussion with fellow compadres, and I found myself matching steps with other peace rallyists, on my way to Basantapur. And thus I rallied for peace; which incidentally was/is a very first for me.
