Thanks for these nice pictures. Religion that is truly believed does not create violence as these pictures show. But, it has wrecked havoc in the world primarily because fanatics use it to brainwash people.

Chitrakar is a common Nepali and he reflects the sentiments of the commoner which the world doesn’t know.They love to celebrate life are humble,religious,kind and hospital.Nepal has been known for all the wrong reasons since the Maoists staged a war on its own people.They are now in power however the transformation didn’t reach the common Nepali.Those were all fake people who wanted to enjoy the highest posts of administration.Common neplai still has to work long hours to make ends meet.Even then they look happy celebrate life.That’s what Chitrakar captures fantastically in his lens.
