Richard Morris is the face of Britain in Nepal. That his bears a visible difference – our man in Kathmandu was born with a port wine stain birthmark along the left side of his face – is something of which he is justifiably proud. But also it has bought about its own challenges in diplomacy.

Yet six years ago, I stumbled across something altogether more alarming: poltergeists who, in airy defiance of the laws of physics, would hurl objects in a house, make a hammering racket, or produce showers of stones from nowhere.
