When we think of the history, the past, we tend to visualize a bland, black and white world. After all, most of the old pictures we come across have had a limited color palette. This makes the image seem more distant than it really is, making it harder for us to relate to it. And our imagination is left with the task of filling the past world with present colors. But thanks to recent technological leaps, you don’t have to strain your imagination anymore.

 

We used AI coloring apps to add color to old Nepali pictures. While not 100% accurate, these photos will give you a colorful glimpse of the monochromatic past and will surely change the way you view it.
