Indra Tamang

I read Indra Tamang's entire blog yesterday, like every single blog post, how about it? And I left a comment at the bottom of each post.

I called up a mutual friend to ask for Indra's number. In less than 15 minutes I was on the phone with Indra who gave me his email address over the phone. Within minutes his online world opened up for me. He had a blog, wow, and photo albums on Picasa. I went through all the pictures. Then I started reading his blog.

I was looking for his number because he popped up on my list of about a dozen Nepalis in the city to approach for my Nepal Hydro Seed Fund. But before you know I was reading up blog post after blog post of his. I was gripped. A pretty good picture of who he was a person and what his story had been going back decades emerged from the posts. I did take a break and went for a long walk in between. But by the time I was done it was two in the morning. I emailed him and our mutual friend to share the news: Hi, I just finished reading your entire blog.

He was nice enough to spend a few hours with me this morning. We had a wonderful conversation. He is a good Buddhist.
