I bought the best textbook ever in Kathmandu :)

- A course in Nepali, by David Matthews ( Heritage Publishers, New Delhi, India)

And a cute dictionary, quite complete though :

- Pocket English-Nepali dictionary, by Prof. Raj Narayan Pradhan (Educational Publishing House, Nepal)

For those interested in history :

- A History of Nepal, by John Whelpton (Cambridge University Press)

All are very good.

An earthquake just happened today at 6.25pm in the north of India. The magnitude was 6.8 and Nepal, Bangladesh and the northeast part of India (Assam and Sikhim especially) were affected.

Apparently no casualties have been reported so far. My boyfriend and his family in the Kathmandu valley are ok, people were just frightened and ran out in the streets. Now it seems quiet but people fear there might be some aftershocks soon.

Let's keep each other updated if you have any relatives of friends living in those areas.

Meera, this is one language I'd like to learn =D I'd even learn it before Hindi, as my first devanagari language.
Learning Georgian, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and Papiamentu from scratch. Trying to brush up my Norwegian up to an advanced level.

Good :) Please do it ! With Nepali, you'll be able to communicate easily with a big part of the Nepalese people, a lot of Tibetan people, people from many places in the north-eastern part of India too. It is the lingua franca of the Himalaya :)

Plus, it's beautiful and I tend to think these days that learning Nepali gives you easier access to Hindi later, rather than starting with Hindi and doing Nepali after.
