Today's paper trumpeted an agreement to declare Nepal a republic and end the monarchy. The Maoaist have agreed to rejoin the government. All the parties agreed to have elections in April to have the public confirm the decisions.
It is huge news and from what I see and hear it is not being seen as a monumental event. I guess people have heard so many promises from politicians that they really do not believe that the current batch will do anything. I can't say that I blame them, but yesterday could go down in history as one of the biggest for Nepal...or not.
