When we think of 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 is, making it harder for us to relate to it. And our imagination is left to fill the past world with present colors. But thanks to recent technological leaps, you no longer have to strain your imagination.
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 change how you view it.
