Congratulations to Narendra Shrestha, photojournalist from Kantipur National Daily for bagging the most coveted award ‘Photo of the Year’ at the Mega Bank Photo Competition 2068 that was held at the Art Council on 11th May, 2012. The photo that Mr Shrestha captured is very powerful… I believe the child might belong to the same family who were seeking treatment recently in Kathmandu. Hope it went well.
