This is one among the many. - Met her in Charrang, Mustang

" Started with just two of us and and now I employ 10. It's been 9 years now. I learnt how to bake from my dad's brother. He used to run a bakery in Pulchowk. I have been in this industry for almost 20 years. Time flies pretty fast." Love Marriage?  Smiles. "No. Arranged." - Bimal Bhandari & Mitu Bhandari, Local Bakers, Kathmandu

If there is one Facebook page that you should like and a website that you should visit then it is definitely Stories of Nepal. Stories of Nepal is an initiative by Jay Poudyal which kick-started in October of 2013 with an aim to  showcase the pulse of the cities and villages in Nepal through individual stories of it’s inhabitants visually – unaltered. The range of photos displayed on Stories of Nepal is captivating and definitely has the ability to inspire in some way or form. The captions bring a whole another dimension to the photos that are on view – it’s simply compelling.

Wishing Stories of Nepal all the best for the year ahead.
