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.

Priyanka Karki and her new ordeal of Social Media Crisis

Priyanki Karki With her new car that she claims to have bought with her hard earned money

Priyanka Karki has been in the buzz of Nepal's socialite and entertainment industry from past few years. She made it to the top list of communication media from TV to flims' to videos'. Indeed a pushed popular face in the industry but not well appreciated among critics and crowd. Time and again with her immature attitude and lifestyle, she has found herself to  controversy  . Though very talented but her popularity has become her hindrance at times. Recently, she posted her picture with a new Hyundai Tucson car that she claimed to have bought with her own hard earned money. With the picture, the public started speculating how she earned so much of money.  Her credibility
and intentions were questioned with huge allegation of misappropriation.

As recently she was involved in a fund raising program in UK for the earthquake victims in Nepal.

Mistake:1. Being a public figure  you have certain pros and cons
2. You cannot be judgmental all the time
3. You have your right to privacy where you cannot be public at all times
4. Show off attitude is wrong
5. You cannot act like a normal public as people look up to you

She with her open and frank attitude has landed herself in a social media crisis situation. Trying to escape or denying the controversy is not a solution. She needs to act firmly as the more she tries to give explanation is the more she is speculated and criticized. So accepting the problem and denying the controversy is  the only solution where she can put her point and proof. Out-lashing and confronting  people is not a solution. Moreover, she would further be giving people a chance to judge her which is not the right thing at the moment.    

Being a celebrity she has  certain responsibilities where she needs to act, she cannot be open and she cannot be vile all the time. People look up to her that means people have certain rights to expect so she needs to understand and work on that.

Nepal Government at the verge of its Hypocracy

Recently the Nepal Government  in wake of the  earthquake of 25 April announced the destruction or demolition of the illegal constructed buildings. Soon after the announcement the Government had to face criticism regarding the corruption involved during the approval and process of building construction and certification.

After weeks, a new information has surfaced that most of the government construction are illegal, yes many of the ministries constructed inside the administrative Den Singh Durbar are without the blue print. Even the current Birendra International Convention Center (BICC) home of the Constitution Assembly has not be registered under the concern department.  The list goes on long with high profile organization directly affiliated with the government  that failed to get the legal status from the concern authorities.

What a joke, that rules and regulations that the Nepal Government is currently trying to implement has no values in view of its own practice. Then does the government has any right to do it in retrospect of the public. Nepal government has been very futile in its policies and its actions but when it comes down to making blunders then its at the top proving the level of its competency.
whether right or wrong if the government is not following  its own policy then it's very hard for the government to convenience the public to be abide by it.

Needy Vs Greedy

After the earthquake, things are changing in Nepal, from the attitude of the people to the attitude of political leaders everything has changed. With this change moreover things are getting clear from the donor agencies perspective who promised huge donation at times of publicity but in action failed to meet their objective ruling in with conditions.

To the apathy of the public  the so called our government which says there is decentralization in management of disaster  failed to acknowledge it in practice. Changing its version from distribution of galvanized sheets to direct money, it has  been futile in its action and motives.

With better political opportunity most of the leaders are trying to create a new government where at the same there are no leaders who have truly stood up for the victims or their voices.

Everything is clear but my concern is with this earthquake, we are also facing a huge problem of management of resource and mentality of people. By resources I mean we need definite protocols and mechanisms for Disaster Management. It has always been like this in Nepal, as Nepal is listed  in earthquake disaster zone but nothing was done why?

Our leaders cannot escape this by saying it is not their fault, I think its their fault as being a leader it was their responsibility that they didn't initiated the right mechanism  and protocol for disaster management. If it was not their fault then whose responsibility is it ?
The public do not have the right to make policies and mechanisms, we nominated them to do this  work for public welfare. If they cannot do this then there in no point in having them as leaders and giving them so much of state level benefits.

From one after the other our country has been facing risk of natural crisis. If you look at the event occurring  last year Sidhuplachowk flooding to this what have we  done , where are we ?

Even at this point of crisis things do not look good, yesterday I meet a Humanitarian Volunteer who said there is huge lack of management  even in partnering with the International Non Governmental Organization(INGO). The reason is what can the INGOs do the government has made it mandatory  to follow the state level mechanism and when they follow that discrimination and political manipulation rules in.

Even in distribution of relief material to rescue operation things have been hugely affected by it.  
This is a major reason why our rescue and relief operation were not so efficient. I am not blaming the security forces, they did what they were told and in fact they gave their best but at management point of view things could have been managed in a more efficient and effective way.

But looking at the performance of political leaders and government level bureaucrats things are surprisingly disappointing.  

Now talking about the other side, the mentality of people are also changing. I can understand  that the devastating earthquake has traumatized us but with limited resources and easy access to food, health and recognition, things do not look good from their part. In fact it is harvesting an attitude of free living perspective where people are getting lazy and looking up to others for collecting donation and resources. I have heard that people have started accumulating relief materials in stock.

If you look at the Tudikhel camp then you would realize that most of them living there are either people who living in rent or wagers who have been enjoying the benefits. Most of them are taking shelter there to escape the rents and food cost. Why would people even work when they are getting free food and a good living standard when you are getting it for free.

Very few of the people who are earthquake victims are residing there.

At this time of crisis when we ought to fight back together if the people start to enjoy the easy living of crisis things would just be limited.

Nepal Earthquake and its post trauma

After the earthquake of April 25 and it prolonging aftershocks, Nepal is still trying to move forwards with new aspirations and hopes.  But with the growing attentions and fund pouring in, things are pretty mismanaged here in Nepal. From the relief materials to the rescue teams Nepal government seems to be overwhelmed with support and resources.

There are many organization that are working for the cause but with high salary and big overhead cost seems to be one of the most common hindrance that cannot be overcome in terms of relief funds being misused.

Even when you look at the practice of International Non Governmental Organization things do not look optimized.

For example  Red Cross  was one of the most active organisation during the times of crisis. They should have made camps and should have distributed the relief materials as per the needs but it was seen that random strategies were adopted. The relief materials were distributed evenly.  

I heard that even with big INGOs that are working in the field paid USD 4000 per hour for heli services which barely makes any sense. In a situation where the country is moving towards crisis monopolizing the situation shows the lack of management and monitoring by the government. How can the private heli services charge so much money for private relief operations.  

I feel thankful to all those who have contributed with the right feeling but somewhere in my mind I am bound to think with all the support and resources coming in will that create a situation of a new problem. I mean to say if people get free food, medicine and everything free then there could be a situation where the country could dive in reverse mode of begging economy. As prior to the earthquake  we paid taxes of maximum level if the economy goes into reverse then the government in this country would surely not able to handle that situation.

There is no business and people are still in trauma, so there is a question of economy balance?

Our government has failed to manage this situation where it is trying but I feel inefficient that means no work. Pitying their situation at times I hear the secretaries shouting in newspaper about how they could not go to their homes for days. I was intrigue being a government servants  how could you even say that ? They are public servant they need to work for the country and people. If at times they wont work then who would and most importantly what about the all the services and benefit they receive from public taxes.

A big question of who is doing what lies ahead

The government trying to act as a controller and promoting the issue of its interest is not a question of management. In-fact  having a long terms strategy of using the resources available and smartly action is a solution of practice.

With sad leadership and weak management government of Nepal is trying heedlessly towards rebuilding Nepal but with lack of vision and promptness Nepal seems to be moving nowhere endlessly.
