We Want To Study Physics Followup

If you missed this report when I posted it earlier, you may want to read it. It seems that the protest by the Nepalese students demanding greater access to physics classes may have worked. In the Letters section of the APS News May 2007 issue, a Nepalese student in Ohio wrote this:

Regarding the picture with the headline "Getting high on physics", published in the March 2007 APS News, I would like to inform you that the number of students in the physics class at Tribhuvan University in Nepal has increased. This happened because of the demonstration by students on December 12, 2006 in front of the Nepal's Ministry of Education and Sport, as shown in the picture, in which they demanded greater access to physics classes.

I'd say good for them!
