Hate in public, love in private

The Geo-politics of Nepal and Bangladesh makes them very much
dependent upon India. (Map doesn't depict exact national boundaries.)
In the last week of March, I travelled through three countries – Nepal, India and Bangladesh. The travel was hectic – 12 hours bus ride from Kathmandu to Kakarbhitta, the eastern border of Nepal and travelling around 100kms in the Indian land before entering the Bangladesh through Burimari port and then another 12 hours bus ride to Dhaka. But that worries me the least - I am fond of travelling. Travel gives me immense opportunities to learn about the places and people that only existed in geography and social studies books.
