KATHMANDU: Tars and tents on the edge of the river embankment just next to the Bagmati (the sacred river in capital Kathmandu) river is home to the people who claims themselves as homeless. The government some years ago have tore the slum shelters which uncovered items belonging to so called Slums which is above the capacity of middle class people to purchase.

Shortly after the demolition the people again returned to the area and now are living there which they call a pathetic situation. Here’s the tour over the slum in Thapathali early Saturday depicting the start of the day in Slum.
