How to insert shock absorbers to Nepal economic system in handling disasters?
The destruction never alarms but what we can switch on for necessary alarming situations are:
Political Neutrality of Administration in Nepal
De —linking the civil servants from partisan politics is essential to enhance the image and credibility. Yet, the dilemma is that it lacks demonstrated ethical commitment to influence public policy, enforce laws and gear efforts for change. This makes the political neutrality of bureaucracy difficult to maintain.
Nepal and the United Nations
A landlocked and least developed country feudal to the core in social term and politically subjected by autocratic rule of more than a century followed by off and on high and low democratic and reactionary exercise in the latter half of the twentieth century Nepal’s is a unique case.
Sixty years of Partnership: Complete Study of Nepal-China Relations
Sixty Years of Dynamic Partnership written by Hiranya Lal Shrestha, writer-cum-politician-cum-diplomat, and published by Nepal-China Society is a timely publication to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Nepal and China.
Politics of Link Language in Nepal
In the multi lingual society like Nepal, the study of inter community communication or Lingua Franca (LF) which is often referred to as a link language or auxiliary language (Rai: 1995) becomes an important aspect of language politics.
Privatization and Governance in Nepal
Nepal’s case is unique and cannot be generalized in terms of economic theories that could work in most other countries. The public sector enterprises were established to fulfill domestic demand in the Industrial sector or to diversify trade dependence in the commercial sector.
Social Costs of Migration in Nepal
International migration is a global development issue. Almost 3 percent of world's workers are on the move now to get better their lives. International Organization for Migration estimates that about 232million people live outside their homelands.
Millennium Development Goals: Poverty Profile in Nepal
Poverty is widespread in Nepal and the level of absolute poverty is among the highest in Asia with some 10 million people living below the national poverty line set at NRs 4,400 ($77) per capita per annum based on calorie intake, housing and other non-food standards.
Nepal: Rhine River, Bareilly and Chancellor Merkel
Thanks that the Indian PM Modi did not say that the Rhine River was a tributary of the Holy River Ganges or for that matter Bismarck was born right in India and not the otherwise. In addition he could have said that the name of Berlin had been picked up by the Berliner Germans from Bareilly, India.
EU fixes nail right on Nepal head
The fact is also that the one who invests money perhaps rightfully deserves the right to ask as to how long the Nepali CA body will take to promulgate the new constitution? Five years or ten years or lingering it for two to three decades? Or not even in our life time?
Pradip Nepal makes informative remarks
In saying so Pradip admits that it is not the Nepali people nor the Nepali leaders who choose their Prime Minister but instead it is New Delhi which remains instrumental and becomes final in selecting as to who should now control Nepal as Prime Minister.
Nepal: Rape in transitional period and Dr. KC mission
By implication the minister did say that “if you can’t avoid rape, enjoy it”. In some way or the other the minister who made such a funny lecture is either uneducated or takes the people’s plight, the rape victim and the family enduring the mental and the associated societal agony, in a light manner.
Indian film maker insults Nepal
Insulting and humiliating the Nepalese nationals by the citizens of the neighboring Indian Republic, which only came into existence, 1947, thanks the British East India Company, is not a new phenomenon.
Problem free Nepal-Pakistan relations
And all of a sudden, the Pakistan Prime Minister said, "Well! Excellency the problem is that we don't have any problems". Listening to this, Ambassador Rajbhandari jumped.
Biratnagar Nepal school days recalled: Dear Prahlad, I miss you
Prahlad, I must admit, was not only brilliant but a hard working student. Perhaps he was the class topper each year in the annual examinations. He used to tell me “Narendra! You must double your study hours...”.
Nepal-Poland Relations: Now 52 years old
By the way, I wish to assure Ambassador Pradhan that Poland now needs a Consul General who would represent Nepal. I am sure, if this office gets established in Poland, once again thousands of Polish tourists will head towards the land of their choice.
Nepal: THE MISSING DYNAMICS OF PEACE PROCESS:
The peace process should have addressed the structural problems which bred the insurgency. Until 2007, Nepal’s peace process was viewed with great optimism as it unfolded quickly, moving fast from the 12-point understanding to CPA to CA election to the realization of a republic (Heiniger, 2009: 47-48).
Nepal lawyers interpret SC verdict on CA differently: Media
Look how the country’s lawyers, eminent ones albeit, have taken the Supreme Court fresh verdict, May 25, 2011, made as regards the tenure of the already decayed Constituent Assembly. No comments henceforth.
Nepal: Cacophony on Election date
Now, the blame game is going on in a full circle. UCPN (Maoists) likes to accuse the government for dillydallying on election date. CPN-UML leader, Mr. Madhav Kumar Nepal accuses UCPN (Maoists) for the delays. Nepal Majdoor Kisan Party leader, Mr. Narayan Man Bijuchhe blames on seen and unseen foreign forces.
Nepal: German MPs Stress on accountability of leaders
He promised to fight in the German parliament for the possible support for Nepal’s democratic, development and peace initiatives. Big parties should support the smaller parties after election and tell them how can we help you and how can we work together.
Nepal perspective: Military intervention is not the solution
US should critically evaluate over the differences of its decades long foreign policies that are creating an anti-American sentiment worldwide.
South Asia: Rehabilitation and Reconstruction in Post-Conflict Sri Lanka
It is in this regards that the International Community, especially the Governments in South Asia, has an obligation towards working with the Sri Lankan Government while sharing the lessons learnt on not only rehabilitation and reconciliation but also on counter insurgency strategy and practices.
Nepal Views: Polish success in market economy and attracting foreign investment
Poland still faces many challenges. The transition from Communism to EU integration and the unemployment hit the people very hard. Thanks to the EU and flexible labor laws, many people flocked to the Western Europe and the UK looking for work and better life.
Indo-Pak normalized ties must for Peace in South Asia
Indeed it occupies a paramount position in Indo-Pak relations and over the years it has abundantly become clearer that without its resolution, the peace of South Asia would continue to remain an elusive commodity.
