There’s been some excitement since it was confirmed Prince Harry would visit Nepal – he arrived on Saturday. As I was trolling the English-speaking newspapers and websites, what did I find only a great shot of Prince Harry with an animated Kanak!
I know Kanak Mani Dixit who, along with his wife Shanta, are co-founders of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) in Bhainsepati. As many of you know, I’ve been associated with SIRC since end 2013.
Besides his work in spinal injury rehabilitation, Kanak wears many hats including journalist and activist …. and member of the Kathmandu Valley Preservation Trust. It was in this capacity that Kanak spoke with the Prince on the importance of conserving the extraordinary and threatened architectural heritage of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal.
If Wednesday is remotely like it was for me in 2014, it’ll be bedlam!! From what I know of Prince Harry, he’ll likely be the first one, chucking coloured powder in the free-for-all carnival of colours that is Holi.
