About  .

  The Book

Nepal’s conflict ruined the country, tore apart our social fabric, brutalised us and hardened our dealings with each other. One can engage in a discussion on the philosophy of violence, but we have to ask ourselves at what cost liberation? Nearly 15,000 people were killed between 1996-2006, hundreds of thousands were widowed or orphaned and millions were forced to flee their homes.

nepa~laya asked photographers and journalists to submit pictures they had taken of the past ten years of conflict. This book is a collection of 172 of the most outstanding among the 3,000 or so images submitted by photographers and journalists for this book. They are portraits of a country in pain. But the faces also tell a story of survival, hope and the triumph of the human spirit. Despite all odds, citizens struggled for peace and democracy and won. This is our story told in pictures taken by 80 photographers.

Every war has its iconic picture. Somewhere inside this book is the picture that will, years hence, be the defining moment of this conflict.

A picture that brings together the suffering and bereavement that was heaped on top of a people who were already suffering from poverty, injustice and neglect.
The book does not have pictures of actual battles, partly because most of them took place at night. But that is not what war jounralism is supposed to be anyway, it should be about how war affects ordinary people.

Few will be unmoved by this book, by the pictures of ordinary Nepalis caught up in a vortex of violence and a conflict fought in their name. The thread running through the pictures is of ordinary women, children and men were affected by the turmoil of the past ten years. But the pictures also show the inner strength and resilience of us as a people. It proves the peoples' coinviction that violence is a dead-end and we must all individually and as a nation work to ensure that Nepal never goes through such horror again.

Nepali editor and publisher, Kunda Dixit, coordinated the project and wrote the preface and captions. The images were short-listed and selected in 2006 by him and a team consisting of noted Bangladeshi photographer Shahidul Alam of the Drik Picture Library and Shyam Tekwani, war photographer and assistant professor of journalism at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

Comment: Last week, just before Christmas, I received the very beautiful book The Great Himalayan Trail I ordered. It took much longer than the 10 days you mentioned in your mail, but I was expecting that so no problem at all. Really a beautiful book, inspiring me to come back to Nepal for the 9th time :) ! Best regards and pheri betaunla from Amsterdam,
