Nepal has been popularly known for people searching for 'Shangri-La’. Recently, however Nepal has seen the Royal Tragedy,  the Maoist insurgency, the declaration of the State of Emergency, and the dissolution of the house of parliament with a call for a mid-term elections set for November of this year.  The upcoming general elections may prove to be a watershed event.  Join us in this rare opportunity to hear from Nepal's Ambassador to the United States.
