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.

Nepal yesterday administered a nationwide polio immunization campaign. Many polio vaccine centers were setup for easy access of polio drops to the general public.

There are a few basic things that everyone should know about polio:

  • Polio is a highly infectious viral disease through Poliomyelitis (polio).
  • Polio mainly affects children under five years of age.
  • Poliovirus is mainly passed through person-to-person contact.
  • There is no cure for polio, it can only be prevented through immunization.
  • Until and unless polio is eradicated, the polio drop has to be given.

Administrator’s note: This is a guest post from Mr. Anup KC who is currently in Sydney, Australia.

It’s just pretty sad to see and a tragic too when people can’t see what’s happening around them and in their society and the country itself. So, blind by their arrogance and hypocrisies, self contained and f%#@ing blaming attitude of Nepalese that their blind and dumb politicians of present Nepal could do nothing but to lead the country to astray; as they are not fit for this 21st century. They are too old, crippled and outdated.

They have got no idea of what so ever is happening besides there 3 km radius which is why they all (including all ranas, kings, and all political parties) believe that country is running smoothly and performing well and all we need is stability. STABILITY is what you say we need and all we do is sit stable, quiet in our house dreaming of future turning blind eye to what is happening today in country without realizing; today makes tomorrow. Hence, your no effort to do anything today will lead to nowhere tomorrow.

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.

There is this nicely written article about our identity and our history in context to Nepal. It talks about our history and the historical places and how we are slowly in the verge of losing it, our history, our culture. It seems like soon we will have nothing to be proud of being a Nepali. We are losing our Identity, the identity of Nepal and being a Nepali, the Culture of our Nepal and the traditions.
