The Mao’s of Nepal has not only destabilized the politics but also the social norms of the society. It has crippled the society from functioning. People are facing anxiety, fear and depression on everyday basis which is an irony of this country. Peace was once the prominent voice now it’s just the war torn country. They did get what they wanted as other political parties did; the PM seat but what has the public received. Absolutely nothing, complete zero and we are still numb. WHY? The only reason is public forgets things too soon and revive on the same lie of getting done something for them. This is the only reason for political parties of being able to retain themselves in the scene even after a complete failure of them being in politics for more than 50 years.

What is your definition of Democracy? Many people will definitely have many different opinions. Yes truly, but it does not mean that the people in power start supressing the public in the name of Security. In this scenerio, Sangesh has written an interesting article regarding one part of human lifestyle.
The recent Sapatakoshi river flood has caused catastrophic damage to lives, livelihoods and infrastructure to an already fragile part of Nepal. According to Red-cross (Nepal), around 54,000 people in the Kusaha, Haripur, Shreepur, Loukahi, and Bhokraha Village Development Committees (VDC) of Sunsari district are displaced.
The initial Damage and Emergency Need Assessment carried out by Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS) has shown that more than 54,000 people living in the eastern belt of the Saptakoshi River have been displaced so far as the river changed its course through densely populated human settlements on 18 August 2008. According to the assessment, 8 Village Development Committees (VDC) are badly affected, and some others are still at risk of flooding.
Sangesh, one of our writers has been regularly writing for Hamroawaaz.com. In this article he shares the fact of food shortages which is in Nepal. The fact that even the Nepalese people don’t know and how the international media has been covering this fact about Nepal. The report by Charles Haviland from BBC did not write this on assumption.
Nepal is going though a transition period, it is understandable that various issues that were neglect or just shrugged off before are bound to rise for public scrutiny. The problem is not that these issues are just or unjust but the problem is the lack of understanding and abiding the rule and norms of a democratic process.These various politicians claim to be a part of a democratic system and yet it seems they dont understand the very essence of a democracy. The recent issue of “ Ek Madesh Ek Pradesh“ is one of those very issues that is far more volatile and no decisions can be made until it goes through the whole constitutional assembly process. The way these political parties are holding the nation on a ransom is totally unacceptable.
It is a very sensitive issue altogether, it is an outright division of a nation based on ethnicity and has a tendency to segregate and hinder the whole united Nepal frontier that is so much need to help us progress and break the vicious cycle of cultural and religious dogmas that have done a lot of damages already. The politicians fighting for this so called tag need to look at the simple fact that within those areas, it’s not madeshies or pahadiyas or tharus or any other ethnic groups that live there its Nepalese who live there, irrespective of what you look like you are a Nepali.
We have all heard about the Royal Nepal Airlines Corporation. Well, how has the management of this historical corporation changed after the renaming from its former name?

Nepal faced more fearful political incidents in Nepal this year, Terai was burning for months. We feared even that Maoist may start their revolution.
Looking at the first stage of the election results, we are going to see some of the new faces in Nepal’s politics, we hope these new faces will not repeat what the old ones did and will work for Nepal and Nepalese.
Let’s hope for a better things in Nepal in the year 2065, let’s hope the problem for load shedding, drinking water and gasoline will be solved and we do not need to waste our valuable time staying queue for these basic needs of our daily life. Let’s pray no more dirty politics, killing of people and let’s pray we can live with safe air. I hope Crimes will be reduced and we will have a bright future.
Last but not the least , let’s hope we have choose the right person to make our new constitution and they will make a new law of Nepal in the year 2065.
Finally once again Happy New Year 2065.
|People lining up for voting at one of the polling station in Kathmandu|
Amid all the rumors, speculations and street talking, the Constitutional Assembly Election in Nepal has finally taken off. Today our country has started the voting process to decide the future of Nepal and the future of the people who will be ruling the country.
Former US President Jimmy Carter, in the course of observing a polling center in a Patan constituency no. 3, termed today’s election as a “ground-breaking event“.
Though the Himalayan Range of mountains separates Nepal and Tibet, the neighbor of Nepal is China, not Tibet. In recent days, there has been a protest in Nepal, the protests being for making Tibet the neighbor of Nepal – the autonomous region. Yes, Tibetans have been protesting for a long time since they have been imposed a rule by china in 1984 and the Tibet is non a part of China (Tibet was already an independent state until China took it over in 1984 in dishonest manner). And as usual, many Tibetans are staying mainly in Nepal and India as refugee.
It is a time for sports in China – Olympic but Tibet has not been lightened by the Olympic fire, but the fire of violence. Protesters have been able to gain attention of outer world and now protests have scaled to the top.
There has been a series of news in Media about the series of protests in Nepal by Tibetans Refugees & use of excessive force by Nepalese Government. Friday 28th March 2008, some refugee student tried to enter the UN premises illegally (about 18 protesting Tibetans exiles have scaled the walls of the UN Compound in Pulchowk, Lalitpur) when the Nepalese authority stopped them from entering through the main gate. And scenes of running and chasing were seen in the street. These types of incident (Protest of Tibetans & Use of force by Nepal Police) are happening everyday. Government is using excessive force over the peaceful protest of Tibetans in Kathmandu. Nepalese authority have been trying to justify their action by mentioning that Nepal wouldn’t tolerate Anti-Chinese feelings in Nepalese land and also stated that the refugee went against the Refugee convention 1951 (?). But, it is not realistic to believe in the authorities’ view, as the whole International community is protesting against the suppression by the Chinese authority. Read the rest of this entry »
