Mahabir Pun Selling his awards for the funding of National innovation center

Mahabir Pun the Social Entrepreneur of Nepal has commissioned for his private conferred awards to be auctioned in US for raising money for the establishment of National Innovation Center in Nepal,

In the past pun who has been fundraising for the operation of the National Innovation Centre, has announced he will donate 28 ropanis of his land, located at Thulakot Danda, Kaskithe worth Rs32 million for the purpose.

Sad thing is he has donated all his awards for the fundraising where Nepal Government is silent about the issues. There has been no statements issue by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment of Nepal.

What is the role and responsibility of Nepal government? If an individual is trying to do so much at least the government of Nepal should try to facilitate ?

What are they doing except making worthless policy and regulation? When we have billions stocked up in the name of Rural Telecommunication Development Fund and nothing is being done why can't we use that fund for the benefit of the citizen of Nepal ?


  • Awarded the Jonathan B. Postel Service Award by the Internet Society in 2014
  • Mahabir Pun was inducted in Internet Hall of Fame as an inductee in 2014 
  • Magsaysay Award, considered by some to be the Nobel Prize of Asia, in recognition of "his innovative application of wireless computer technology in Nepal, bringing progress to remote mountain areas by connecting his village to the global village" in 2007
  • Pun was elected Ashoka Fellow by the Ashoka Foundation, the global association of leading social entrepreneurs 2002

Nepal Election 2017: A political Game for stakeholders

The Nepal Election 2017 has successfully completed first phase of its ordeal, highlighting the uncertainty and chaos.  Once again creating a situation of  political deadlock the  Supreme court has intervened in the political truce of interrupting the Madhesi union aspiration, Nepal is again back in the path of Political unrest. The truce has been broken where the Madeshi Union (MU) has announced protest program and has given ultimatum to Nepal government to adopt the new constitution amendments bill or else to face the consequences.

The MU has openly challenged the government of foiling the second phase of election that is schedule to happen from June 14 on Madeshi territory.

The election was merely a chapter of democracy and practice of democratic values where all the stakeholders are bargaining  their powers and commitment.

People voted but they have been framed in the political aspiration of creating better system where more or less the Nepal election proves to be a successful political gimmick. People want to practice their democratic rights and they are farmed in the name of political deprivation.

From the elite political parties, it was just an intervention of identifying their role and perspective of creating better alliance for the formation of new government where they can manipulate the position. Various aspect of tokenization of Women was also seen in terms of lobby young and inexperience candidates in various positions by political parties as a trending option of political bubble.

The European union and developing organization (INGOs ) were more focused in securing the rights of indigenous/ minority group with substantially pushing the role of representative in the local level election as a compulsion.

The MU is more focused in creating issues and agendas of being deprived and unwanted collecting sympathies from the international communities.

The Nepal Election is hugely subjected to a dilemma of collaboration between the MU and the elite political parties. The trust has been broken with the new interim order of the supreme court on Friday which clearly states a new polarity of 3 angles

1. Madeshi union
2. The Government of Nepal
3. The Supreme Court of Nepal

It seems the political culture and political leadership of Nepal  has no sense of  commitment towards the public or democratic values. It is all about the power and  manipulation where alliance and agreements are formed just for making or running the government. Public governance and cooperation is a limitation of  system that is more neutral about practicing values of Nepotism, corruption and favoritism.

Nepal's Political culture establishing supremacy

One after the other Nepal's political leaders are practicing the culture of "Anarchy" and are trying to establish their supremacy over the governance mechanism. In any administration system the operation works with bureaucracy, legal system and constitution. Now looking at the Nepal's perspective the political leaders have frustrated the system so much that neither the bureaucracy nor legal system and constitution  nothing is active.  They have made the system handicap of taking any action against them.

In any country there is a check and balance system that marks and checks the credibility, & accountability of stakeholders and leaders . With the impeachment as a tool of attack the political leaders are targeting people who are standing in-front of their way.

This is not  good development in terms of political culture if you look at it from the outside perspective it is creating a dangerous situation where peoples frustration is piling up.

Firstly the impeachment of Lokman  Karki and now Sushila Karki normal citizen are trying to understand the importance of impeachment and its used. It seems Impeachment is like a chocolate where 25% of the parliament support can filed a case of impeachment against any government leadership.

Getting back to sushila Karki, the working modality of sushila karki to some extent has been very political as the controversy of IGP appointment and appointment of Judiciary council  certainly shows how she made the decision at the middle of the night. Even if you look back she has been surrounded by controversies.

How can we understand the fact that for a normal citizen it takes years and years of compilation and frustration to get justice and for high class people and high ranking official its done at the middle of the night.

I am not saying Sushila karki's #impeachment is right but the question is, if there is no standard and equality then there is no level of law
Law is equal for all if not it is not law

They shut lokman with Impeachment for trying to raise his hands against UML leaders now they are doing it against sushila.
