School Children form a Human Chain in protest to school closure

With frustration and sad faces the school students formed a human chain in and around the valley.
Around 7 million school children have been directly affected by the Madhesi agitation. On Friday the school children took it to the streets making a human chain marking the frustration against the cruel politics of Nepal that is taking it's toll on their right to education. Yes, the children marched to the streets and poured their outcry in making a voice for their educational rights. Due to the Madhesi blockade the country is suffering from huge crisis of petroleum product. As the nation is a land-lock country and India is helping the Madhesi group the situation is worsening day by day creating a situation of scarcity and chaos.

On one hand the school are closing down due lack of shortage of operational materials and on the other hand due to fuel shortage transportation are very proving to be stressing. Around 40% of the traffic has been directly affected where transportation is a major hurdle.  

Prakash Sami, A student said, " We do not care about what politics is or what is happening? We just want things to be normalized and things are not getting normal. One after the other, days are passing by and the scarcity are taking its toll. In my house mummy has shift her kitchen from inside the house to outside. Previously, we use to cook food in gas but  now we do that in woods. How can this be good as burning woods is bad for environment and so many people doing will completely wipe out our forests. I just want to know what is our government is doing ?"

Pramod cheetri, another human chain participant said, " we want our rights every other week the school closes down, next months our examinations are due and we have our courses due. It's a sad situation why and for what people are fighting for? I do not understand the politics but by the way people are talking, it sound pretty intense. I do not want to be part of this the only thing i want is i just want to study ."

No matter what the reasons are but making the whole country suffer just for the sake of a community or group of people is not justifiable. The government is silent as its doesn't want to bear the responsibility in terms of consequences but keep silent and doing nothing wont solve the situation. Things are not moving and when things do not move then everything halts and that's not a good sign. we have to find the solution to the problem hiding the problems is not the solution it's the sign of denial. our government is just doing that doing nothing, at this time of crisis concrete action are required with specific responsibility and vision.

The Nepal Government is silent about reconstruction

It has been nearly 6 months after the 7.9 earthquake and the second stage of reconstruction has not yet started. Though there has been phenomenal achievement in terms of Constitution and Nepal has successfully appointed the first woman president but relatively nobody seems to be talking about the earthquake reconstruction and other aspect of adaptation process .

It seems pretty not convincing that  the government is more focused towards the Madhesi agitation where there has been no progress made. People are still facing the shortage of petroleum products and the rural area still wait desperately in terms of resources and reconstruction of infrastructure.  I think the major challenges  are

1. The priority of government has changed after the dissolution of previous government
2. The political process is more busy in creating their own existence and finding new opportunities for themselves
3. The Bureaucracy of Nepal is not efficient and effective
4. The earthquake was a process of getting the funds and now when the funds have come then interests have shifted 

5. The public is busy in deal with the shortages nobody has time to rethink about what needs to be done
6. Political culture of Nepal is not morally and ethic based
7. Power and manipulation rules politics of Nepal

8. There is a no capable leadership
9. Nepal is a failed state in terms of politics leadership and decision

Where are the Pro Madesi Activist ?

After the KP Oli was declared the 38th Prime Minister of Nepal the so called "Pro Madesh Movement" has lost its will and zeal. With the direct notation of creating a blockade and forcing the government to agree on their points the Madhesi Alliance till few weeks back was not in the mood to listen to the Nepal government. Out of the blues the radical protesters who were demanding rights and identity for their community have subsided in vial attempt. When they started the protest they were against the Constitution and currently now they are directly supporting and participating in the government. This may seem very unnatural and morally challenging for outsiders but for Nepal's political culture, it’s not new and has been an essential factor of Nepal's politics.

So who to blame and what to expect is the main question?

This gives the notion that after the constitution was made the Madhesi leaders were scared that they would be limited to their state level politics so they plotted the so called pro movement and now when their representative have landed safely in the government they have completely stopped. 

The way politics is being done in this country in the name of identity, indigenous groups and deprived community is something that is really amazing. It is said discrimination itself is discriminating so people who do politics in the name of discrimination, themselves want to practice it. Reality is when the  practice stops then their politics would also stop. The current terminology like reservation, quota and other opportunity proves to a wide example of political tool that is being plotted in the name of people. 

These leaders should lobby the policies and strategies of equality and basics rights to every individual. But do they?
A big no they always push their issues in the name of indigenous and deprived community where the real people fail to even address the issues and all these political leaders and their alias eat up the opportunities.   
In the same view the alliance parties have come upfront to join the government in understanding with 8 points alliance with KP Sharma Oil and his party. Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar one of the lead faces of the pro Madesh movement has step up to forget the voices of people in adjusting with the government.

Past holds the truth and future further searches answer for what needs to be done ?

Youths and students take it to streets shouting #backoffindia in the streets of Kathmandu.

Nepal’s youth have taken it to streets making loud the #backoffindia slogans. After the controversial statement and India trying to infiltrate into the political issue of Nepal. The Indian government has declared an invisible blockade against Nepal.

Making the move the Modi Government has been very smart enough in lobbying their political aspiration through the current agitated Madhesi group in directly supporting them and helping them to protest in the no man’s land.

Right now the Modi Government has been blaming it to the Nepali political leaders reasoning it to be their dissatisfaction and blocked but in reality the invisible blockade is working its way through open ways of saying how India is bullying Nepal for its geography disadvantage.

Prakash Chhetri a protestor said, “Modi is a fraud, he addressed our nation with big words but when it came to practice things are completely different. No matter how much you cry or show your emotion Mr Modi you cannot fake people as your action speaks.”

After the promulgation of the new constitution by more than 85% of the Constituent Assembly (CA) members, the dissatisfied agitators have been protesting in view of finding a solution to their problem.
From the past 4 days not even a single truck has passed through the boarder.

Ghaite death ignites controversy

The Story of Kumar Shrestha A.K.A Kumar Ghaite's is like any other Bollywood movie where a GUNDA turns to a social worker without escaping his Karma. Despite the fact of his criminal record the Nepali Congress had taken him  in their political Protection. But as said you cannot escape your destiny He was killed by the Nepal Police in a cross firing when Ghaite open fire at police as reported by Nepal Police. Though Nepali congress party has been denying the story saying the police intentionally Encountered him.

Looking at the circumstantial evidences, the story of the Nepali police may not be as strong but there is no point in arguing whether he deserved to be alive or not. He was a hard core criminal who was on the most wanted list. If he was caught  then he would get out using his political alliance he would be out of the jail. The Nepal police may have done the operation in a more proactive way but one thing they need to understand that killing is not a solution. People may support the killing of a criminal but if the power is misused then there would be a serious problem.

No matter what reality is but he was a criminal and was involved in various criminal cases and was listed on the top wanted list of Nepal Police.  Why are the political parties of Nepal so weak in terms of morale values and ethics. Now they are saying he had changed but my question is what's the use.
He was a hard core criminal and he entered the political party as a gunda. Would they accept him if he had changed as then his power and reputation would surely be affected.

As per his close allies he was followed by police weeks before he was killed. Police tried to kill him and he filed an application to Human rights Commission demanding protection of his life.

One more Gunda is down now the city may be a safer place but let's hope for the best as we do not want the police to be going insane  with the power.

My Recommendation for the New Constitution

Please find attached my recommendation and suggestion

The current constitution is very vague about various topics where political leaders have become smarter in making their presence and power superior. ‪#‎Constitution_of_Nepal‬ should be above everything not political leaders, Political leader should not have the full power being in control. They are the there as part of their social responsibility which needs to be well understood. They are they for the public and country not for their party. The limited political approach and bad political culture has resulted this country into political crisis of today. we do not want to transcend the same culture upon the coming generation. Political aspiration should not be bigger than the country, it should be for the public and welfare.      
1. Citizenship should be simplified in terms of being valid by official birth documents and one parent rule. As for the rich, it is easy but for the poor its even hard to find a visibility in terms of existence and identity so making it rigid in terms normal citizen of family legacy is very hard for the poor.

2. Judiciary system should be independent, no manipulation by political leaders, especially in regards to the appointment and promotion should be done. It should remain independent in every aspect of it management and operation. Judiciary and its management should be done by judicial council with prominent mechanism of performance and qualification with no political intervention.

3. Security council should have a representation of President and CoAS. it is utmost important for a mulitstakeholder approach in terms of security council. Compromising the security council of only political leaders will jeopardize the country's sovereignty and pride at all times. we do not trust our politics as they have no political culture and faith so its better to avert the risk then to put faith on them.   
4. There should be a provision of electing public nominate representative to state leading bodies. Similarly,   political parties must be monitored in terms of their action. I think its high time there should be a provision in the constitution regarding a mechanism to monitoring the political culture. Political leaders specially are more prune to power and publicity where they are not responsible towards their country and people. If the country's religion is utmost important then the people who run should have a code of conduct   which is utmost important.

5. ‪#‎Nepal_Army‬ should be left independent. Nepal Army is the only institution that should be left independent. the discipline and the management of the organization is very well testament of how it has maintained its pride and prestige. So this organization should not be leveled with other government organization. The pride of being #Nepal_Army should be retained by Nepal Army Act only
6. Religion facts should not be included in the constitution, its the right of public so it should not be touched. secularism completely describes its  practice and nature so it should be left alone.
Nepal is a secular country that defines the practice.

7. Every Nepali should have the right to be who he is and what he wants by every means possible. Regarding the international convention and standards also there should be a provision of automatic mandate as we have adapted globalization so there is a possibility of huge confrontation in-terms of practice and definition.

Subisu is the worst ISP in Nepal

This is not a public stunt nor is a mere act of criticism, it is just my voice of fight. I have been subscribing subisu from last 2 years but after their recent upgrade their service has been worst. From past 6 months I have been complaining about the bad service to customer service department but every day it was the same repetition of router switch on and off. Later one of my neighbor who had connections complained to higher authorities and the device was changed and it started working for few days.

The thunder hit me as Today June 24, I was selected in selection committee of UN President of General Assembly's 2 July Consultations on WSIS+10 and whole night the internet was not working.
Dam WTF is only I could say, a bad internet connection not only make you feel bad but it make your blood pressure go up

It was a life time opportunity and this was when I least expect the service. I had to steal the net in the middle of the night no option except to borrows others line


I only have regrets using subisu, Please if you are reading this do not subscribe to subisu  its a waste of time money and resource. They promise the best but they are the worst and it hits you when you need the most.
