Answer each quest

Answer :

(i) The author has captured powerful images about the atmosphere of ‘febrile confusion’ outside the temple of Pashupatinath in Kathmandu. Apart from the example already given, the author observed a group of Westerners who were struggling to enter via the main gate as only the Hindus were allowed inside along with a fight that broke out between the two monkeys. In addition to this, he also saw people bowing down and making way for the Royal Nepalese Princess entering the temple.


(ii) The author saw many things in and around the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu. The stillness he observed here in contrast to the febrile confusion outside the Pashupatinath temple along with the immense white dome ringed by a road were among the most fascinating. In addition to this, he saw small shops standing on its outer edge selling felt bags, Tibetan prints and silver jewellery. On the narrow and busy streets, he saw fruit sellers, flute sellers, hawkers of postcards, sellers of Western cosmetics, film rolls and chocolates, copper utensils and the Nepalese antiques.


(iii) The sounds the author could hear included film songs blaring out from the radios, car horns, the ringing of the bicycle bells and the vendors shouting out their wares. Additionally, he also observed the soft music of the flute seller standing in a corner near the hotel.
