Kathmandu, Feb. 19 -- The Nepali Times Editorial two decades ago this week marked the 10th anniversary of the 1990 People's movement that turned Nepal from an absolute to a constitutional monarchy, unbanned political parties and unshackled the press.

But these words from 20 years ago still ring and the message is still relevant.
