Nepal: A Pictorial Love Story

unnamed (1)

In August 2012, actor and travel photographer Kunal Karan Kapoor travelled to Nepal with the team of his daily soap Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha. The crew spent over 10 days in and around the buzzing colours and heritage sites of Kathmandu and Kunal captured the rolling clouds, the valleys, the majestic structures in Durbar Square, the serene beauty of the Swayambhunath temple, the Manokamna temple and the warmth of the local people. He recalls, “We were shooting for over 12 hours at times. Once we started a shoot on a clear day and then suddenly, there were clouds everywhere. It was just magical. At the time of the earthquake, some of my friends were trekking there and it was stressful because we could not get in touch with them. Then the IAF rescued them and they came back with stories of the constant din of ambulance sirens and raw fear.” Kunal shares  his memories of Nepal as it was once and says, “My thoughts are with all the people we met there and I hope, I can go back soon and help.”

    It was nice of you to go back to the pictures which Kunal happened to shoot while being a cast member of the TV serial Na Bole Tum. That was a wonderful time Nepal was enjoying the lush scenery and serene lives of the people and viewers of NBT had the privilege of seeing all that. But with the recent earthquake we see in
    the news show us such devastation. I wonder if Kunal Karan Kapoor will find the time to go back to that beauiful place which he visited in making the serial NBT. We see such devastastation in the news which Kunal might find the courage to go back and shoot the pictures of the places he actually visited and see how the earth has turned over and how families have been destroyed. I hope Nepal will one day get back to its former glory and life will go on as it once was.
