Thank you for your article \'\'Flower Power in Kathmandu" (Demo Issue) regarding the beatification projects in Kathmandu. The project would not have been possible without the active and firm commitment of the Nepal Tourism Board. The development of projects is perhaps the easiest component in Nepal The more difficult aspect is the long term maintenance and sustainability.
The flowers at Maiti Ghar would not have been so glorious or well maintained without the continuing financial support of Nepal Tourism Board. The CEO Pradeep Pandey, the Finance & Administrative Director Prashant Singh and Kishore Pandey in particular among the Board of Directors deserve special mention because they have provided invaluable support and encouragement for any innovative or challenging ideas that have been broached. The Mayor of Kathmandu also deserves kudos for being an innovative City Father in allowing the private sector to be part of his city development team.
