Bahadur Maharjan, 86 years old mustard oil seller from Thecho, Lalitpur whom I met today while I went for a Culture Walk in Patan. He was a jolly person and we had a very interesting chat. He was inviting me to his home village if I ever need mustard-oil, made traditional oil mill in Thecho. He even promised me to offer home make wine and he guarantee that his wine will make me 10 times more talkative than I am.
