From The Nepali Press
Narayanhiti to Nagarjun



Since moving to Nagarjun, the former king Gyanendra has been spending most of his days reading. A source close to the former royal family says the king is very quiet and spends much of his day roaming around the Nagarjun Palace garden. He also takes time out to listen to music and write poems. The former queen Komal spends most of her days playing cards with relatives.

Those royal employees who used to go to Narayanhiti until last week, must now go all the way to the Nagarjun palace.

The former royal family wants to organize their new residence better. The palace kitchen is especially small, and preparations are being made to expand the kitchen area.

Despite many invitations from neighbouring India, the former king decided to live in Nepal. Those in the world closely watching the developments in Nepal were stunned by this news. Some say he is trying to win the hearts of the international community by becoming the king who decided not to go into exile because of his love for his country.

However, others say he is waiting for the parties to make mistakes so that the people realise what they let go of and he will be eventually reinstated.

People in the palace discuss Cambodia's former king Norodom Sihanouk and say the only way for the former king to make a comeback is by following Sihanouk's example and using his strategy of entering mainstream politics.
