It has almost two months I have been talking about the ex-prince of Nepal, Dhirendra Shah. I started by talking about why he was the most unlucky prince in the Nepali Royal family. When I started making the video, I had no idea about Dhirendra. Except for a few rumours about his involvement in Namita – Sumita kanda and a little hint of his involvement in smuggling. When I heard about such rumours, all I knew was he was one of the family members of the Nepali royalty.
I was studying about the Royal Massacre of 2001 to write a book about the incident. Then I found out there were a lot of books on the subject. The book is still half-way and I am planning to complete the book next year. During the study I came across an article in ‘Himal’ magazine. The following photo (and, its caption) created a pity on Dhirendra.
This photo has every Royal family members except for Dhirendra. The prince was left alone in foreign land because of his affair with a foreigner. I decided to do a little research on the person. He seem like a really interesting guy – probably a very unhappy prince. Then, I decided, I would do a series on him.
