Mix Tape from Kathmandu, Nepal

15 February 2010, Kathmandu, Nepal –

The following few photos are a sample of my first month in Nepal. The rate of festivals in Nepal, political, religious, public and private  events is somewhat overwhelming for the senses. This is a random selection of a few moments scattered throughout the month, from Hindu’s Shivaratri to Lhosar, the Lunar New Year celebrations held by the large Tibetan diaspora in Nepal a few days ago via  to Buffalo preparation that amazed me during my first week here. Features ‘Trash Town‘ and ‘Water Valley‘, are longer term endeavours on the challenges Nepal is facing on security, governance and environmental levels.

A ‘New Day’ has come نوروز (Nowrūz)

The Persian New Year, generally celebrated on the day of the Spring equinox, 21st of March, was marked by an afternoon of celebration at Trafalgar Square, London, 15th of March 2009.
An important social gathering of several Diasporas communities from Turkey, Iran, Syria, Iraq and several other neighboring countries as well as passersby, curious, and foodies alike. The event was visually dominated by flags of Abdullah Öcalan,  founding-leader of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK, Partiya Karkêren Kurdistan).
Öcalan is considered a terrorist by the EU and the US for his armed separatist ‘actions’ , along with the PKK,  against Turkey. Öcalan was arrested in Kenya and  is currently sentenced to life imprisonment in Turkey.
