Behind the endless vistas of its stunning Himalayan snow peaks lay a malady that had slithered around Nepal for centuries until the new millennium dawned. It tormented a number of people even though the symptom, common and ephemeral, was deemed an inevitable part of life or simply, karma.
Each day, near dusk, as the sun dissolved into crevasses of the brilliant Everest and Annapurna massifs, its remaining ray casting the sky indigo, some women and children would lose control of their eyesight. Every object would turn obscure with all of nature's kaleidoscopic charm going dimmer, and dimmer. The opacity was total when the sun and the moon exchanged place, plunging their world into darkness, and chaos. The affected women - oft pregnant, eyes glazed and visages pale- were instantly bound to a corner, unable to cook, wash, clean and attend to crying babies. Some tripped, some bumped against beams and walls as they strained to move about their mud-brick houses. And many relied on family members to take over domestic chores, including tending to their need to answer nature's call. The affected children, too young to realize what went wrong, would whine to register their fear, to the grief of helpless parents.
