t appeared that Kumar had fallen some 200 meters below the route.
Officials of the two border districts have met in the backdrop of the prevailing situation and agreed to maintain peace and order.
Recently, I travelled to Barpak where I walked around with my camera and talked to the locals and listened to their personal stories -- of hope and hopelessness, loss, sorrow, courage and the earthquake. Some made me cry, some made me laugh. These stories also gave me a broader understanding of how life must move on. Here are some moments from my journey.
Last month, 25 October to be precise, marked the six-month anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Nepal. While the people who have suffered this catastrophe are still either trying to break down and reconstruct their half damaged homes or have settled down in camps indefinitely, their troubles have assumed new dimensions following the recent political turmoil in the country.

The road was blocked by a large digger, tipping smashed masonry into a truck and villagers worked to clear debris in the pounding midday sun. Dust from the rubble hung heavily in the air. To see the storeys-high piles of bricks, cement and twisted metal, it was difficult to believe that work had gone on for a long time. It looked like the earthquake occurred yesterday, not four months ago.
Three weeks after the earthquake hit Nepal, I made my way to Kathmandu from Mumbai along with a team of doctors (who were mostly my cousins and a few friends). We were a group of 9 in total. For me, it wasn't just about my Nepali heritage, but also a sense of duty that took me across the border.
Since the earthquake, the streets of Thamel have been much quieter. They're not quite deserted, but they don't feel like a flourishing and buzzing tourist destination anymore. Fortunately, though, the spirit of the entrepreneurs in Thamel is very much alive. Many business owners have cautiously reopened their shops, and are anxiously on the lookout for the next tourist to walk through the door.
As with all disasters, the extent of the carnage was dependent on the preparedness, resilience and accessibility of the country's health care system and its ability to deal with the flood of patients requiring urgent, life-saving treatment. In this regard, the Government of Nepal must be given credit.
