YouTube Share – तुईनको छ है भर

Follow up video to Kathor (web link), Night is back with another awesome music video with a stunning array of images and videos representing the desolate Nepal. Whatever the present is, I hope to see a better Nepal, soon. This video is not mine, but am sharing here because it inspires me to do something good. Plus – youtube lets me share it, with proper acknowledgement (written below).
