Nepa~laya's A People War Photo exhibition tour has reached Kathmandu after successfully completing its third phase on west and far western areas of the country. It has been exhibited in 30 places across the country and more than 300,000 people have watched it so far making it the most widely viewed photo exhibition.

 The exhibition contains photographs from Nepa~laya's bi-lingual picture book A People War, envisioned by Kunda Dixit. The aim of these exhibitions is to build a constituency for long-term peace in the country which has suffered a lot during 10 years of war in terms of loss of human and material cost. Common reactions of the visitors in all the places confirmed that people wished it should not happen again.

 Kathmandu exhibition will have some added features. Second part of the exhibition will consist of sample feedbacks from all the 30 places.

 A huge participation of general public, students, leaders of various political parties, government officials, security personnel of army and police, artistes of different genres and expatriates is expected during the two days exhibition to be held in Nepal Art Council, Babar Mahal on February 29 and March 1, 2008.
