A lot has healed but scars remain

Tikapur was a ghostly town when I last visited 27 months ago. I had arrived two days after eight police officers, including a senior superintendent of police (SSP), were killed by an angry mob of mostly-Tharu protesters, and a day after members of the Pahadi population retaliated by setting fire to properties they believed to belong to the Tharus. A lot has healed but scars remain
