Himal Southasian


08 Mar 2006

The Southasia Trust, Kathmandu, Nepal

Supplied note:
"In the cover feature of the Himal Southasian March - April 2006 issue, we have charted the course of two forms of extremism in Nepal, scrutinising the continuing warfare and sudden democracy deficit in the country where we are based. We also present articles on Darjeeling/Sikkim, Balochistan, remittance trends, regional cinema and much more. - vs."
Self-description: "Himal Southasian is Southasia's first and only regional magazine. [...] Independent, non-nationalist, pan-regionalist - Himal tells Indians and Nepalis about Pakistanis and Afghanis, Sri Lankans and Burmese about Tibetans and Maldivians, and the rest of the world about this often-overlooked region. Critical analysis, commentary, opinion, essays and reviews - covering regional trends in politics and economics with the same perspective as culture and history, Himal stories don't stop at national borders, but are followed wherever they lead."
