Kanak Mani Dixit
Kanak Mani Dixit is editor of Himal Southasian regional magazine and publisher of the Nepali-language Himal Khabarpatrika newsmagazine. He was actively involved in resisting King Gyanendra’s takeover and was detained many times, the latest for eighteen days during the People’s Movement of 2006.
The removal of the contemptuous Nepali regime was a type of "people power" absent from Asia and the rest of world for many years, opening dialogue with the Maoist rebels and creating the conditions for peace.
