Last 'god-king' to live as citizen of a republic

The dethroned last Hindu 'god-king' on earth in Nepal has reportedly agreed to leave the palace ( which would be turned into a museum ) soon to live as a common citizen in the newly set up secular republic. All his pomps and pageants in the past have proven to be illusionary.

Rural Nepal is still a very backward society, almost primitive. I hope the new regime can make a difference in the people's lives.
I'm also going to reserve judgement to see how the new government responds to dissent, as it will arise sooner or later.

I guess Nepal now is like China in 1911-1949 minus foreign invasions and widespread addiction to opium.
