The former king of Nepal, Gyanendra Bir Bikram Sham, made a surprise public appearance last Sunday at the Bageshwari temple in Nepalgunj, and was cheered by royalists who cried for the restoration of the monarchy. The king was deposed in 2008.
Nepal is currently undergoing a constitutional crisis, but the chances of restoration are still microscopic.
Gyanendra has recently also made headlines because of a TV interview where he complained about his suffering of up to 12 hours of power cuts a day. "Justice has not been given to me", the king told the TV audience.
