Narendra Modi addressing Nepal's Constitution Assembly

Addressing the Nepali Constituent Assemble, the Indian  Prime Minister #NarendraModi spoke in Nepali bridging the gaps in between the Indo-Nepal relationship. The mileage to the speech was his recognition that  proclaimed Gautam buddha was born in Nepal and honored the brave blood  of the Bahadur gurkha's who have been fighting with pride and prestige for India.

Somewhere in the long speech he also highlighted the possibilities of Nepal and showcased his visions and plans. The addition attraction was the Mahakali bridge which he said to be one of the vital core factors for the relationship. Similarly, his HIT formula of  future cooperation, satellite program for the SAARC, increment in scholarship, possibility of hydro power and telecommunication problem added his personal interest in Nepal. Though he clearly retaliated the direct interference of India in Nepal's political scenario but he humbly and diplomatically touched the relevancy of Nepal's location and its strategic location in India's concern and priority.

Analytically and strategically looking at the speech, Modi's speech was highly motivating and concerning. As Modi forecast his visions and plans, he also  highlighted Nepal's strength and weakness. If you look at the strengths he focused more towards future cooperation and using the hydro power and exploitation of  resources where as about the weakness he was more silent and had a definite approach of being a big brother.

One thing to be noted was the recognition of "Gautam buddha being born in Nepal" yes we all know this and even the UNESCO has recognized it. So an Indian prime minister saying it in front of the CA sounds more of a diplomatic dose to the group of Nepali Political leaders rather than of being more straight towards having the past treaties and agendas that has impeded the Indo-nepal relationship.

Apart from that an outsider highlighting the possibilities in Nepal certainly makes me feel inferior that we did nothing in Nepal and our political leaders are worthless and they have not done anything where it's just a point of thinking.
Likewise, Modi showing concerning over the sunkoshi  was just an emotional point, we all know that if the sunkoshi blockade would  not have solved then the koshi barrage would have threatened the Indian boarder and Indian habitat in its terrain.

Frequently mentioning the current state of India and how it has progressed was not a question of substance.We all know India has become a super power and with that it has gained its pros and cons.

The real state of friendship would have been correcting  the past treaties and how Nepal has suffered due to it so Mr Modi how about fixing the problems first and then forecasting  future plans.

Another point to be noted that Nepal has become one of the center of concern due to security for India. The most wanted criminal and terrorists have been infiltrating through Nepal and in the past the Indian security agencies have already listed Nepal as a security threat, so there is no option for India except to have cooperation in every possible way.

The Nepal Government did everything that was possible to make him feel content highlighting the message of Indo-nepal relationship.  The Kathmandu Metropolitan city which always failed to keep the city clean made its best possible effort in keeping and showcasing the city beautiful. Similarly various rehearsal were done to make the event a point on attraction.   Being the 4th influence and powerful person of the world, modi's security was protected in 4 layers.
