fear of future

मानिसले सधै ब्रर्तमानलाई महत्त्व दिनुपर्छ भबिस्य त केबल येउटा भ्रम मात्र हो।
एक दिन बुद्ध आफ्नो चेलाहरु सग कुनै नदिको किनारमा यात्रा गरिरहेका थिये त्यही नजिकै केही केटाकेटीहरु बालुवाको घर बनाउने खेल खेलिरहेका थिये। कसैले अलिक राम्रो र ठूलो घर बनाउने कसैले आफ्नो बुद्धि र चहना अनुसार सानो ठिकको घर बनाउदै खेलिरहेका थिये त्यहि क्रममा येकले आर्कोको घर भत्काउन र बिगार्न थाले येक किसिमको झगडाको माहोल थियो तर यो सबै घटना परिघटना बुद्ध र उनका शिष्यहरुले राम्रो सग अनुगमन गरिरहेका थिये।
येहि क्रममा साझ पर्न थाल्छ र येउटी स्त्री आयेर ती केटाकेटि हरुलाइ घर जाउ रात पर्न आटिसक्यो तिम्रो आमाहरुले तिमिहरुलाइ पर्खिरहेका छ्न त्यति सुनसाथ ती केटाकेटीहरु घर जानू अघि ती सबै बालुवाको घर भत्काउन थाल्छ्न,बिगार्न थाल्छ्न त्यस बखत त्यो बालुवाको घर भत्किएकोमा कसैलाई केही मतलब हुदैन कोहि झगडा पनि गर्दैनन त्यो बालुवाको घरका निम्ति।
ति केटाकेटी घर गयेपछी भगवान बुद्ध आफ्नो चेलाहरुलाइ भन्नू हुन्छ जसरी ती केटाकेटीलाई साझ परे पछि त्यो बालुवाको घर् को महत्व भयेन तेसरी नै हामिले भबिस्यलाई संचित गरेर राखेको सम्पत्तिको पनि समय आयेपछी कुनै महत्त्व हुदैन तसर्थ बर्तमान मा जिउ भबिस्यको चिन्ता नगर भबिस्य त केबल येउटा भ्रम मात्र हो

Nepal PM meet to indian pm narendra modi

The new Nepalese PM Sher Bahadur Deuba is on his first visit abroad to India after assuming office. It will be his fourth state visit to India though. It is virtually a norm now for the new head of government in Nepal to make his maiden visit to New Delhi. But over the last couple of years, with a rough patch seen in the relations between Kathmandu and New Delhi and Beijing aggressively wooing Nepal, it is wise to not take things for granted.

The Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang was in Nepal earlier this month even before New Delhi could meet the PM Deuba after he assumed office for the fourth time. He flew straight from Pakistan where he was the chief guest at the 70th Independence Day function. The visit to Nepal assumed greater significance as it took place in the backdrop of the stand-off between India and China over Doklam. Sources though denied that China ‘officially briefed’ Nepal on the issue. According to them there has only been informal sharing of views.

While speaking to News 18, the Nepalese Ambassador to India Deep Kumar Upadhyay said, “Nepal is a neutral country. It is in favour of reconciliation in a peaceful manner. Nepal respects sentiments linked to territorial sovereignty of nations.” The small nation wedged between two Asian giants clearly wants to steer clear of taking sides as it believes it shares a unique relationship with both.

China has also been aggressively pursuing projects under One Belt One Road (OBOR) or Belt Road Initiative (BRI) with Nepal. India had boycotted the OBOR summit in Beijing in May this year but Nepal did participate. Sources in Nepal however said it is wary of indebtedness and will carefully see that “cost meets benefit” before jumping into any project.

While China tries to make further inroads into Nepal, India too is keen to show Kathmandu that it cherishes the relations based on historical, geographic and cultural affinity between the two. Sources say both sides have left behind the bitterness of the alleged “blockade” in 2015 over the Madhesi issue and are now once again focusing on “implementing past understandings.”

Both sides are expected to give due consideration to issues related to water management. This becomes especially crucial at a time when both Nepal and India are reeling under floods. Nepal will push for speedier implementation of work on Pancheshwar hydropower project. The other projects it is pushing for are Karnali and Arun projects.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday the union cabinet gave its nod for a new bridge on the India-Nepal border over Mechi river. An MoU will be signed between India and Nepal for laying down the modalities concerning the bridge. Mechi bridge is expected to not only improve connectivity but also improve trade. Trade imbalance is another concern Nepal has been vocal about. Nepalese ambassador to India Deep Kumar Upadhyay said,” Trade gap must be mitigated. Nepali products should get free access to the big India markets. And no formal or informal hurdles should be allowed.
With these issues at hand, the two Prime Ministers will be meeting at Hyderabad House today. PM Sher Bahadur Deuba will also visit Hyderabad, Tirupati and Bodh Gaya.

- A pilot died and two crew members were injured after a cargo plane of Goma Airlines crashed while landing at the Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla near Mount Qomolangma on Saturday afternoon, authorities confirmed.
The 9N-AKY aircraft crashed as it was trying to land at the airport, which is often regarded as the most dangerous airport in the world.

Captain Paras Rai was pronounced dead at hospital at 3:20 p.m. local time while the co-pilot was reported to be in critical condition.
Though it has been speculated that the crash occurred owing to bad weather, the exact cause is yet to be identified.

प्रचण्डमा आयेको परिवर्तन

आज सामजिक संजालमा प्रचण्डको राजिनामा धेरै चर्चा र मिश्रित प्रतिक्रिया आयेको छ र येसलाइ समन्वय रुपमा लिनु पर्छ।
सन्दर्भ छ,  जनयुद्धको पृष्ठभुमि बाट आएका हाम्रा प्रधानमन्त्री प्रचण्डको बिगतमा बेलाबेलामा क्रन्तिको स्वरुप द्वन्द्वको छाँया देखिन्थ्यो जस्तै उधाहरणको लागि सेनापति प्रकरण होस वा पशुपति यी दुबै प्रकरण  बिबादास्पद र प्रचण्डको कर्यकाल असफल बनाउने भुल हुन तर यो पछिल्लो कर्यकालमा त्यति धेरै उग्र क्रान्तिकारी भुल भयेको हेर्न पाइयेन समग्रमा केही सकारात्मक परिवर्तन भएको हो कि भने जस्तै भयो।
सकारात्मक कर्यहरुलाइ हेर्दा भखरै चीनसग गरियेको हस्ताक्षर जुन अतन्तै महत्त्वपूर्ण र अवसर हो नेपालीका लागि। कुलमान जस्तो योग्री ब्यक्तिलाइ स्वतन्त्रपुर्बक काम गर्ने बताबारण बनाउनु अझ परिपक्वताको आउटा उधाहारण हो।
सबभन्दा ठूलो कुरा चही आफ्नो पार्टीको राम्रो परिणाम आउदैन भन्ने जनिजनि परिवर्तनका निम्ति चुनाब गराउनु ज्यदै ठुलो साहास हो। यी येस्ता कार्य हरुको पछि मुल्यांकन हुनेछ र इतिहासमा प्रचण्ड जस्तो ब्यक्तिमा पनि सकारात्मक  परिवर्तन भयो भन्ने सन्देश जन्छ।
आब कुरा गरौ यो कर्यकालमा बिगत बाट नसिकियेको पाठहरु जस्तै पशुपति र सेनापती प्रकरणमा सफलता हात नलागेको इतिहास बिर्सिएर फेरिपनी प्रधानन्यायाधीशलाई महाअभियोग लागाउनु जुन गर्नै नहुने गल्ती थियो जस्लाइ नेपाली जनताले नसिकियेको पाठ भनेर बुझ्ने छन।
आफ्नो पार्टीको राम्रो परिणाम आउदैन भन्ने थहा हुदा हुँदै निर्वाचन गराउनु सकारात्मक हो भने तर येकै पटक पुर्ण गराउन नसक्नु अपरिपक्वताको अर्को उधाहरण हो। प्राबिधिकरुपले येकै पटक गर्न नसकेको भये ठिकै पनि हुन्थो होला तर राजनीतिक रुपले दुइचोटी चुनाब गर्दा केही गलत सन्देश जान सक्छ र सम्भ्वत यो नै पहिलो चोटि होला नेपालमा राजनीतिक रुपले दुइचोटी चुनाब गर्ने योजना।

यदि परिस्थितिले दुइचोटी नै चुनाब गर्नु परेको भयेको छ भने नि आफुले येउटै सरकारले चुनाब सम्पन्न गरेर राजीनामा दिनु पर्थो यो पनि येउटा ठूलो भुल हो।

समग्रमा भनु पर्दा प्रचण्डमा केही सकारात्मक परिवर्तन आयेको देखिन्छ र भबिस्यमा आझ परिवर्तन र परिपक्वता आउनेछ भने आशा नेपाली जनताले रखेका छ्न।

politics and facts of election

Nepalese are lining up to vote for representatives in municipal and village councils for the first time in two decades, a landmark moment in the country's transition to democracy.

Polls opened in three provinces at 7am (01:15 GMT) on Sunday with nearly 50,000 candidates vying for the position of mayor, deputy mayor, ward chairman and ward member in 283 local municipalities.

The ballot paper in the capital Kathmandu - one of the largest constituencies - was around one metre long to accommodate the 878 candidates.

The vote has been split into two phases because of unrest in the southern plains bordering India, where the minority Madhesi ethnic group is refusing to participate until an amendment to the constitution is passed.

The remaining four provinces, considered potential flashpoints for election-related violence, will vote in the second phase due to be held on June 14.

Local government representatives were last elected in 1997. Their five-year terms expired in 2002, at the height of the country's civil war, and their mandate was allowed to lapse.

Bureaucrats have since filled those positions, many appointed on the basis of allegiance to the main political parties.

Corruption has flourished, hampering the delivery of basic services - from healthcare to the appointment of teachers at government schools.

The peace deal that ended the decade-long Maoist uprising in 2006 began the impoverished Himalayan nation's transition from a Hindu monarchy to a secular republic.

As part of the accord, a new constitution was written and finally adopted in September 2015, nearly a decade after the end of the conflict.

The charter mandated that local elections, followed by provincial and then national elections, be held by January 2018 - the final step in the drawn-out peace process.

But the constitution sparked protests by the minority Madhesi community - who say the document leaves them politically marginalised - and led to a months-long blockade of the India-Nepal border that caused a crippling shortage of goods across the country.

The Madhesi community threatened to boycott the local polls unless the constitution is rewritten and forced the government to split the vote into two phases.

The government has promised a vote on an amendment to the constitution after Sunday's election, but the fragile ruling coalition is struggling to get the necessary majority in parliament to pass the bill.

Massage from Indian PM Modi

Modi discusses India-Sri Lanka connectivity in talks with Lankan leaders

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at dinner with Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena in Colombo on May 11, 2017.

The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has discussed with Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe cooperation in development activities including improving “connectivity” between the two countries.

But connectivity with India, especially by road, is a controversial issue in Sri Lanka as the islanders fear that it might facilitate Indian intrusion.

There was a howl of protest in Sri Lanka when it was known that during Wickremesinghe’s discussions with the Indian Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari in New Delhi in April, the latter mentioned an ADB-funded project to build a bridge between India and Sri Lanka as part of the larger Asian Road Connectivity Plan.

Officials who briefed newspersons on Thursday’s talks said connectivity in terms of establishing a Buddhist Pilgrimage Circuit was also discussed.

This of course is a non-controversial subject as more than 200,000 Sri Lankan Buddhists go to India on pilgrimage to shrines every year.

The Indian prime minister told the Sri Lankan president that the projects that India intends to execute here would be for Sri Lanka’s benefit as per his motto: “Sab ka saath, Sab ka vikas” (cooperation with all for the progress of all).

These assurances had become necessary because of the general suspicion in Sri Lanka that the Indian-aided projects and pacts with India have been of benefit to India rather than Sri Lanka, right from the time the India-Sri Lanka Free Trade Agreement was signed in the late 1990s.

Given the opposition to the signing of agreements during Modi’s visit, the spokesperson for the prime minister made it clear at the very outset that there is no plan to sign any MoU or agreement during the two-day visit. However, he added that economic projects were discussed.

Rajapaksa meets Modi

Indian High Commissioner Taranjit Singh Sandhu said former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa, at his request, met the Indian prime minister. Details of the discussion were not known.

However, earlier, Rajapaksa told the media that the visit of the Indian prime minister would not have any “negative impact” on Sri Lanka. There would be a problem only if he signed any agreement during this visit, he said.

However, he had heard that an agreement had already been signed on economic projects, Rajapaksa added.

Though the Indian prime minister is in Sri Lanka officially only to be the Chief Guest at the International Vesak Celebrations on Friday, he had come with key policymaking officials including the National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar.

At the dinner hosted by President Sirisena, the guests included the Northern Province Chief Minister CV Wigneswaran and the Leader of the Opposition R Sampanthan.

The Indian prime minister was received at the airport by Prime Minister Wickremesinghe and Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera, among other Cabinet ministers.

Permission for visit of Chinese submarine denied

Significantly, China had asked Sri Lanka for permission to dock a submarine at Colombo port “around” May 16, but Sri Lanka had declined to give it, Reuters quoted an unnamed official as saying.

But another official said that permission for docking at a later date could be given.

Obviously, the Sri Lankans did not want a Chinese submarine lurking in Colombo around the time of Modi's visit. In 2014, the docking of a Chinese “nuclear” submarine had raised hackles in New Delhi.

Clearly, China had made this request knowing full well that the Indian prime minister would be in Sri Lanka around the time the submarine would be in Colombo.

Sri Lanka had clearly told China that it alone has the right to determine what kind of vessels can enter its harbours, including the terminals built with Chinese funds at Colombo and Hambantota.

The women empower in local election

Nepalis go to the polls on Sunday
The first local elections in nearly 20 years are taking place in Nepal. Under the new constitution, local bodies have substantial clout - they will draft laws, collect certain taxes and even have some judicial powers.
Nearly 20,000 women are standing for election in the first phase on 14 May. Women must fill certain positions in the local administrations and this has driven strong female engagement across Nepal, especially among women under 30.
They spoke to three young female candidates who want to end the dominance of older men. A second phase is expected on 14 June.
Ranju Darshana, 21, mayoral candidate for Kathmandu from Bibeksheel Nepali party

Ranju Darshana (with yellow scarf) wants to break with tradition in the race to be mayor of Kathmandu
I grew up seeing regular strikes enforced by political parties and tyres burnt on roads. This had a deep impact on my young mind and I started imagining politics free from these things. Eventually, with a strong conviction that young people can bring about change in society, I decided to stand in the elections for the post of mayor.
Young people in Nepal have had ample international exposure and they know what is missing in the country. With their positive energy we can definitely change our current style of government and make the authorities more people-friendly, less corrupt and more accountable.
Around 1,500 young Nepalis leave their country every day in search of better jobs and opportunities abroad. Their contribution to the national economy has been huge - but where is their actual representation? I want to be their true representative inside the country.
I don't believe in creating castles in the air like the major political parties are doing during the election campaign. I have a five-year plan to change the face of the city, which is doable.
I aspire to make the authorities people-oriented. I have plans to tackle the biggest problems of Kathmandu like haphazard urbanisation and pollution. I may not have experience but I plan to work with teams of experts and my role will be to ensure that the things are in place.
Kabita Dhungana, 27, standing for deputy mayor in Belkotgadi, Nuwakot from Maoist Centre party

Kabita Dhungana, 27, is following in her father's footsteps to make local government work
In my childhood, my whole family was into politics. My father joined the then-rebel Maoist party and dreamed of bringing change to the country.
But he was killed by the state in 2005 when I was just 15 years old. I was already politically aware and I decided from that very day to fulfil my father's dreams. I was already associated with the student wing of the Maoist party.
My father used to tell me that he dreamed of a country headed by a commoner and not a monarch. This eventually became true but his dream of delegating powers from Singhdurbar [the government's central secretariat] to the local level has not yet been fulfilled.
I believe the polls for local bodies will make people their own lords. I am contesting the post of deputy mayor which has many judicial powers and duties.
As a lawyer, I can use my expertise to exercise these powers and duties for the benefit of the people. Times have changed and young people should come forward to bring about change in society. There will be no better forum than the local bodies to do this.
Durga Kisan, 26, Nepali Congress candidate for Baglung Municipality-6 in the Dalit Women category

Durga Kisan (on the right) seeks to improve the status of Dalit or low caste women through politics
I joined politics after my colleagues encouraged me to do so. I am already married and have a son who is just two and half years old. But my husband and other family members are very supportive and I have been able to continue my association with politics.
 • If young people continue to detach themselves from politics, change will never happen.
 • Only the involvement of young people will bring positive change. There are no proper education, water, sanitation and infrastructure facilities in my area. Elected local bodies will be an effective tool to address these problems.
 • I represent the community called Dalits, who were treated as untouchables in the old social structure. The problem of untouchability has gone away. But Dalit women are still deprived of opportunities and I want to improve their situation by educating them.
