Launch of new Himal Southasian website

Last Friday, Himal Southasian‘s new website went live, and on Monday we launched it. The slick new appearance looks professional, it’s easier to search and navigate than the old site, and contains specially-commissioned art by illustrator Paul Aitchison. And, the first article to appear on the site, Patrick McCartney’s ‘The Sanitising Power of Spoken Sanskrit‘ is a cracker.

Here are a few pictures from last night’s launch at the Himal office, Patan Dhoka, Kathmandu.
