Nepalese monarchists, quite properly, have not given up hope of restoration. Blogger Maila Baje speculates on possible plans to restore King Gyanendra's six-year-old grandson Hridayendra to the throne. Sounds good to me. The republic must be regarded as temporary!
Hridayendra would of course not hold the real power even in the event of a restoration...but I'd rather be ruled by a six-year-old boy than by Maoists!
