The making of a Miss Nepal and their new ways of presentation

Miss Nepal has always been into controversy in one or the other way. From women activist to the wide ranger of other controversies related to women empowerment, its always a new idea and thought of contradiction.  

May be, it's not because people love criticizing or may be  it's because miss Nepal represents the women of Nepal, a pristine representation in terms of empowerment, leadership, morale values and so many other qualities. She is not a normal person and she cannot behave like one as millions of people are follow and admire her so she has to be perfect and glorified in every possible way of presentation and preparation .

 It is quite overwhelming sitting at the center stage and addressing  the crowd which might seem challenging but with the training and groom up session  you just have to suck up all your fears and abnormalities and give your 100% or else your out of the league.  I guess pressure is something which these girls face from the day one and its the 1 % of what they have to face as after the competition you have to face the 99% which come with the package and label of being a Miss Nepal Contestant  or in case of winner then its more dramatic in every possible way of adjusting your whole lifestyle.

 I guess the responsibility of being popular and Miss Nepal is more than living up for your identity, as things do change overnight to be a star and to face the country with being the idol and star of hundreds and millions.

May be this is the reason why people expect high standard and so much from  Miss Nepal winners.

Talking more about the raining Miss Nepal 2015 Evana Manandhar she sounds like a 50 year old mature woman with a  soggy attitude who behaves  like one. I do not why but during her speech itself she was impounding that they concurred the international events that they all participated but let me tell you Evana you didn't. You didn't bring back anything expect a personal experience nor did you do anything special during the Nepal earthquake. Though I can understand your limitation of being Miss Nepal 2015 but  you could have mobilized the resources and network very effectively.

Now talking more about the current miss Nepal 2016 Asmee Shrestha what a lousy pick. I think the judges were drunk or they were under influence, How can a woman who says she would blind fold herself for a king represent a woman of 21 century  and on contrary to that in the next answer when she was asked about the reservation she support equality and denied the support to the quota of woman reservation.

What is wimp?
 A modern woman of 21 century is all about standing up for herself leadership, being free from prejudices and she is saying she would marry the blind king and be blind. what an answer.....  

I am amazed with the decision and surprised with the judges how and who made those sad judges.

Give me a break !!!!

What kind of woman idols are we setting up here for young women to look at.

This years Miss Nepal 2016 looks more confused about her own values equality and rights.she is just a frog in a well.

Let me tell you Asmee Kathmandu is not Nepal. First you go to the rural villages but you have to know their state and condition.

Miss Nepal represents the best of the best beauty with brains.

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.
