NEPALGANJ?The fact that many Nepalis who had fled the conflict to India are starting to return may be an indication that things are returning to relative normalcy in their home districts. According to the police at the Nepalganj-Rupedia border checkpoint, the number of people leaving Nepal used to be in the hundreds every day but that traffic has slowed. ?Now, they are coming back,? says Police Inspector Chabilal Rana at the border, citing that 563 Nepalis came back last Friday and only 101 crossed over into India. Last month the numbers were reversed and about 500 people from Bheri, Rapti and Karnali left for India everyday. The people leaving are seasonal migrants who go to pick grapes or apples in Himachal Pradesh.
