A victim of the burgeoning population of pigeons

As usual, this devout devotee came in to Janabahaa to pay his respects to The Compassionate One this afternoon, after a particularly hard day at work. Having finally arrived at relatively quieter Janabahaa after a brisk fifty-minute walk across town, thanks to the fresh disruption in transportation services, he heaved a big sigh of relief and sat down on one of the long benches lying around… to be rewarded by a big “splat” on his head.

Rather than take the warm, whitish green blotch that just landed on his head as a sign of good luck, which many elderly people tend to do, he just asked a fellow devotee to kindly wipe it off, which she did promptly, without uttering a word. Photos by Laeta Tuladhar.
