Headlines become real after you have traveled. I took this photograph in the spring of 1999. To me, it always embodied the spirit of the Nepalese people I met. These scrappy people can hold their own against any lion. This square may be destroyed now, but this spirit will carry them through.
There is no route to the present except through the past. Indiana’s recent history is, in a word, sordid. Its past record of “religious freedom” movements should burn in memory.
