Nepal's ex-king struggles with power outages

Nepal' s former 'god'-king Gyanendra has now found it difficult to live with frequent (electrical ) power outages in his impoverished country. Nepal, one of the extremely poor countries in the world on earth, was declared a republic on 28 May, 2008, without opposition or resistance of the Nepali military. India, the spiritual homeland of Hinduism that is still a large Hindu-predominant country, proudly proclaimed itself a secular republic three years after it's independence from colonial rule. With the sole exception of tiny Bhutan, all other post-colonial nations in South Asia, viz . India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Maldives are now republics and no restorationist movement is known.
