A soldier from the 2nd Battalion extends a salute with the Maoist greeting, a clenched right fist, to villagers gathered to welcome them after they descended from the mountains to take part in a cultural program and remembrance ceremony in the village of Kholagaun, in the Maoist heartland of Nepal Thursday April 22, 2004. In the mountains of Nepal, one of the world's last full-blown Maoist revolutions is thriving/forging ahead/gaining ground. The doctrines of Mao, the Chinese communist leader who believed in communism via an empowered peasantry, have found new life in the farm fields of this Himalayan kingdom. The rebels contend their revolution _ which has cost more than 9,500 lives _ is only possible through the barrel of a gun.
