An Honorific uncle of his Majesty.

Daily Stories by Dr Stephen Sloan

I was highly honored when Siddhanta Shaha, a Rana Princess and aunt of the then king made me her brother in a long Hindu ceremony. In honor of the occasion She had tailor made beautiful Nepali traditional suit for me. At times when I wore it on my way to the university because of my sun tan and sunglasses I looked like a member of the royal family. As a result the police often saluted me. This was as it should be. After all I was an honorific uncle of his majesty.
