Published On: May 6, 2013 | Duration: 23 min, 38 sec
If Nepal's royal family is to be believed, 30-year-old Dipendra, the then crown prince, had in one cruel stroke eliminated the king, the queen, his younger brother and at least seven other members of his own family. Everyone who knew Dipendra said he was a gentleman and a modernist; a man who wanted to make the monarchy and the palace more progressive; a man who was always smiling. How could he have suddenly turned into a trigger happy monster? On Reality Bites, Barkha Dutt captures the mood in Nepal, a country shocked, shaken and in turmoil in the wake of the royal massacre.
