Favorite Song…

This is a picture taken at the Kumari Ghar, which means house, in Nepali.

Its a beautiful palace sandwiched in the center of Kathmandu City in Nepal. Kumari means virgin and every year a virgin girl (pre-pubescent) is choose from the Skhaya caste (Nepal has a dozen or more castes). Her family, in return, is paid a handsome sum…enough, I’ve been told the large sum (comparatively) feeds her entire family for life.
