Some wounds will never heal, but as Nepal faces the hard task of rebuilding each broken life and broken buildings, the people of India stand with you in strength and solidarity. In the years to come, we will see a stronger, more prosperous, even beautiful Nepal whose ingenerable spirit will rise above present despair and inspire the world,” Rahul wrote.
