HELICOPTER

Photoblog: The Everyday Heroes of Sindhupalchowk District

I'm devastated and disturbed after spending the day in the mountains of Nepal's Sindhupalchowk District with Dr Fahim Rahim. He chartered a private helicopter to deliver food and plastic tarps to several remote villages, which have been completely flattened by the earthquake. Today I realised that most professional journalists and bloggers (including myself) have gotten it so wrong. The story of the Nepal earthquake is not about the rubble, it's about the people.

Open Letter To US Marines From Nepal

We, as Nepalis, are mourning the loss of thousands of our people, coming to terms with our centuries-old historical monuments turning to dust, and trying to cope with earthquake PTSD. We are really grateful to you for standing with us at a difficult hour.
