Based on news items, and my personal experience in Nepal, Not Collateral Damage offers a unique glimpse of the country. Following 6 characters from various walks of life the reader is drawn into the growing political tension of 2004 that forms the background of each character’s story. These are people with hopes and dreams of a better life, they are not collateral damage.
