I am starting a series of talk about the 2007 (2050-51) democratic movement led by the King Tribhuvan. It was an unique movement that was led by the ruler himself.
A foreigner woman was at the palace at that time. Erika Leuchtag had seen Tribhuvan’s involvement in the protest against the rulers. She had written a book on her stay in the royal palace and her acquaints with the King. I am presenting the information given in the book as a weekly series. The series is retelling of the information Erika had told in the book in Nepali language. It is not a translation so, I will be omitting the things that aren’t of value to my viewers.
The first part of the series will premier at Friday – November 9, 2018 – 12:00 AM ET. The first part is how Erika got the invitation and what was the response of her mother and her friends about going to Nepal.
After I recorded the first part, I came to know that Erika was a physiotherapist. I will give this detail in the second part. I haven’t done second part or any other parts yet. I am writing the script as I read through the book.
Part 1 : How Erika got an offer to go to Nepal?
