MUNI. Kohl-dark eyes betray the fiery temper of Chanda's niece Muni, whose marriage to a man she does not love was arranged at birth. Unlike most Nepalese women, Rana Tharu women have the right to initiate divorce-provided a new suitor will reimburse the bride price paid by the husband. Now in her 20s, Muni remains married out of loyalty to her family.
