    I’ve also experienced all these events, watching movie in Old Jai Nepal, being looted once, Bishwojyoti Hall, Picnics and all. But i wasn’t born and raised in Kathmandu. No uniqueness.

  • Sarthak Raj Pandey

    You actually miss those old hoarding boards with nice slogan advertisement of Surya , Shikhar. in every nook and corner, which was then banned..
    #U shall remember just look at the pic. of Jai Nepal above

    No. 10 sign, Why New road is called for narrow congested road ?
    I think u have a question & u have an answer too.U must have old photo of newroad thereby we could compare & find the clue. But eventhough i felt to answer this question. In old time just 45 yrs ago We could hardly see motor vehicles on this road & this road was well paved & asphalted & seems to be very wide & new. Mostly Hippy foreigners & coffee shop were seen on sideby which was mimicking the kathmanduites as a foreign road. Thats why irrespective of other roads, this road was called New Road. This is the clue. U know the answer i believe but i liked to comment this.

    All points matches in my case except that Manakamana line. I had been to tato pani khasa so many times with tol gau Ko relatives n friends. I along with my siblings always got chance to do shopping at bhotahiti during Dashain only. And last but not the least Pashupatinath temple may be thousands of time I have been there. Dashain Ko morning walk garne Thau

  • Pramesh Manandhar

    Small Bajaj Tempo, Vikram Tempo, Old Sajha Bus and Trolly Bus these are few other things which always remind me about the old Kathmandu…

  • md sameer

    I am not from Nepal but I often travell to kathmandu and I feel like as I was born there. I have been there more than 80 times and again I am about to go in Jan 2015

  • sunil khatiwada

    Well not to forget these things as well..
    Those huge yellow garbage dumping container
    Those distinct trees on both side of the roads
    Pashupati area was not like it is now ..old houses and no open space

  • Saurabh Kantha

    Watching movie at 2 p.m on saturday afternoon?? Seriously?? Did the writer assumed that there were no NTV broadcast outside of Kathmandu ?? Getting out after rain is still the same in many places of Ktm even in these days!!

    P.S you cud have wrote 10 unique point and had made it much better, logical and eye pleasing but u kept your rant on.
