Agriculture and Nepal
Thanks to pretty much every text-book through school, the kids of Eighties in this country will never forget that "Nepal is an agricultural country." Agriculture is the most essential facet of our economy, Working in a field or farm, one experiences Nepal in a very true sense of its socio-economic dynamics. The supply-chain of a fruit, a sack of rice, is the blueprint of our economy while the circumstances of this production results in a unique culture and way of living. (Like this festival held every year on Monsoon on the first day of planting. Or this one held in Kathmandu to appease the God of Rains).
