Well, I first must thank Architect John Sandy for his commendable effort of restoring our price less art and treasure. Being myself an architect, I feel ashamed on behalf of whole nepalese architectc's community who always aspire to fulfill a " clients individual" desire and aim to create neo-archtiectural extravaganza which would have no cultural connection to their soil. While there are so much as an architect you could do, my dear fellow architects, you should open your eyes and enlarge your arena of professional practice to contribute to revive or lost treasure, cutlre and priceless art.

I sincerely urge our educators and scholars to do more research and bring these subject into mainstream curriculam, for both B.Arch and M.Arch ( historic conservation, or Urban Planning). Your little effort can contribute a lot , for the students, artists, local communites and to the whole nation. I understand we study extensively on newari art and culture, but it is a high time for us to go beyond the boundary of ktm valley and explore/study/reasearch and contribute.

For sure, after i am done with my study, I am going back to work as an architect, not limiting myself to Ktm valley. Anyone wish to do so feel free to shake hand with me!
