    Nepal is one country that is very rich in culture and history. They are known to be a conservative yet strict because of some rituals they have been obeying for the last hundred of years.

    I usually have the attention span of a goldfish but I read the whole article and I want to read more! I never knew Kumari excisted and I love the fact that you took your time to find out so much about it.

    I’ve seen this little goddess in Nepal on t.v.(Replays:Believe it or Not.)about 5 or 6 years ago. The former Kumaris featured on R:BN was like unhappy and she seems not social.

    I’m just wondering if they are still bothered about the traditional beliefs like these Kumaris should’nt get married because there is a curse bound to them?

    Very Nice post..Thanks much..
