Nepal today is at a critical crossroad, with hopes of its resurgence as a nation-state clouded in a mire of doubts and confusion. This book is primarily based on the author’s ground assessment reached through interactions with innumerable people, both high and low, during his recent trek through Nepal. They include, besides the man on the street, some key personalities from the worlds of politics, academia, bureaucracy and business.
