Today is Poush 14 – the birthday of late king Birendra Shah – the last king Nepali actually loved was King Birendra.
A rare photo of KP Oli, prime minister, with King Birendra in the following video:
Although I am no fan of monarchy, I appreciate King Birendra as a person. The royal massacre, that killed almost all of the royal family, was one of the most deadly and mysterious incident in the history of the world.
