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. Continue reading Recollections of the peace rally in Kathmandu, 7 May 2010
