THE DANCING DEMOCRACY: THE POWER OF THE THIRD EYE
THE DANCING DEMOCRACY: THE POWER OF THE THIRD EYE
Description
About the Book:

When the Seven Party Alliance called for a four-day strike starting from 6 April 2006, the anniversary of Nepal's 1990 Jana Andolan, no one could have foreseen what would ensue. The protests brought hundreds of thousands on the streets, and finally resulted in a victory for the proletariat and democracy. As history is being made Nepal, Prakash A. Raj takes a look at the main actors on the country's political stage -the monarch, the analyses what happened in Nepal and why. He probes such questions as whether Nepal will become a republic or a ceremonial monarchy, who will control the Royal Nepalese Army and whether the Maoists will join mainstream politics or will try and capture power. Interspersed with striking photographs of the demonstrations held recently in Nepal, this book is an insightful look into the turbulence in Nepal, and how the power of the people prevailed. A must-read for anyone interested in South Asian politics.

A well-known writer, Prakash A. Raj is the author of Kay Gardeko? The Royal Massacre in Nepal. He comes from the family of Nepal's Royal Preceptors and his association with the ruling family dates back to the period of King Mahendra. Having studied and worked both in his country and abroad, he currently lives in Nepal.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
