FOO CHEE CHANG


MECHANICAL GRAVEYARD: Trolley buses lie in a decrepit state of disrepair at their depot in Min Bhawan. The trolley bus system, when started in 1975, was touted as a key component of public transportation in Kathmandu. They were taken offline in 2001. A peek into its past and present:

FOO CHEE CHANG

MAOIST MANIFESTATION: Maoist slogans and graffiti can be spotted all around the bus park. The bus park was home to members of the Young Communist League up till recent times.

SELF-ANNULLING PROPHECY: A bold claim plastered to the side of a trolley bus.

MAKE YOUR OWN BED: An unmade bed inside a trolley bus suggests continuing utility. This 'makeshift hostel' was probably how YCL cadres were accommodated once.

FOO CHEE CHANG
OLD SCHOOL, NEW SCHOOL: The bus park has been transformed into a terminal where electric tempos are charged and serviced after work.

This is how we take care of things- especially Nepalese peoples and the government. Renovation and proliferation of the organization seems to be oblivion. And thats always. No need to say.

2. DR
What is Nepal govt. doing about these junks? Why don't they scrap it permanently and find other better alternatives? I think our political leaders and pundits are thinking too hard to make themself rich first. So, every Tom,Dick, and Harry will have to get fat first before taking care of the rest including Nepal. Ironically, these pictures depicts the actual state of Nepal. "I AM THE FUTURE" perfect! A JUNK and more JUNK. We need to scrap all the junks first useless and outdated men and machines.  

3. Bless Nepal

What a pathetic scene. This all happened after democracy was declared in the country. This is reminder of the greed and avarice of the leaders, planners and bureaucrats on how they care about the public goods they serves the general public. Has any one thought of reviving the mass transport system which is pollution free and environment friendly. Unfortunately the answer is no. We must remember that the trolley bus system in Kathmandu was a token of appreciation from China. It must be restored any how to cut pollution and save Kathmandu from congestion. This is an appeal to the leaders of the country. Do not just call bandha and protests. 

God bless Nepal
