At the moment I am very much intrigued (blown away, actually) by the ingenious, ancient, Nepalese drinking water supply system. Many people of Nepal still rely on the centuries old dhunge dharas on a daily basis. I also wrote an article about the tutedhara's in Nepal.

After a small detour to Kuttam Pokuna and Galle Fort in Sri Lanka, I recently returned to Nepal with new articles about Alko Hiti and Nagbahal Hiti. I also did some writing on Hiranya Varna Mahavihar.
