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.
