Nepal's political direction still uncertain after 'revolution'

Nepal was a country in the throes of political and constitutional turmoil in 2006.

King Gyanendra had dissolved parliament and sworn in a new cabinet under his direct rule, a move that was strongly criticised by Maoists rebels who had been waging an armed conflict against both the monarchy and the

government.

At the time, US-based analyst Chitwa Tiwari said signs were pointing to Nepal heading towards 'total revolution.'
