A People War - Photo Exhibition - Kawasoti - Day 1

Third phase of A People War - Photo Exhibition Tour has started from Kawasoti, Nawalparasi on January 29, 2008. The exhibition contains a collection of 60 photographs selected from the picture book, A People War.

There was a long queue of people when the exhibition opened at 9 AM. It is expected that about eight to ten thousand people will watch the exhibition in Kawasoti on January 29 and 30. An interaction between the journalists is also scheduled to take place from 11 Am to 2 PM.

Kunda Dixit, who envisioned the bi-lingual picture book, inaugurated the exhibition. "The country has suffered a lot during 10 years of war in terms of loss of human and material cost and it should not happen again. We believe that the exhibition helps to build a constituency for long-term peace in the country." 

President of Federation of Nepalese Journalists Nawalparasi, Mr Keshav Parajuli, said that they wanted as much people as possible to witness the impact of the loss. 

Nepa-laya, the publisher of this critically acclaimed book is extending the exhibition to 9 more places Mahendranagar, Dadeldhura, Surkhet, Ghorahi of Dang, Syangja, Baglung, Beni of Myagdi, Besisahar and Gorkha of west and far west before ending on February 26, 2008 in Kathmandu.
