We had been taught by the Political scientists that if democracy did not work, provide more democracy. This meant that if the system we have had after the 1990 movement did not perform well, wisdom would have demanded that we provided a new boost to the previous system by injecting more democracy into the system. However, we did not do that and instead preferred to copy an alien name and that too from India which is the largest democracy in the world indeed but how that system has been functioning there is perhaps known to all and thus that demands no further explanation.
System are not bad in itself. It is we the “leaders” who operate the system and twist it that suited to our petty political party interests. We see there should have been no quarrel amongst us for the dismantling of a world’s first class system what we had in the country. But we preferred and intensely squabbled over a name which was just a synonym of what we already had in our possession.
This was the first blunder we committed.
If King Gyanendra was an autocratic ruler, and he exhibited that he was as much as became visible during his rule, we the Nepalese must have waged a struggle against him from within. A home grown and owned struggle against the monarch would have enhanced the popularity and the prestige of the country and its people. Instead opting for the best preference that we had already in our possession, we sought the support of such a neighboring Goliath whose appetite for eating this country tip-to-toe is still prevalent though in different forms and shapes. By all measuring standards, King Gyanendra must have enough sentimental attachment for this country-
Beginning 1950, this neighboring country has not only commanded the Nepalese politics to swing its way but has also in the process made us totally dependent on its dictates. Examples galore!
The Nepali Diaspora must learn the crude fact that over the last one year of what is called
This has been the second blunder that we committed.
Let us admit frankly without feeling ashamed that over the last years, Nepali politics and those who handled it facilitated the foreign interference in an excessive and unprecedented manner. Let’s not also forget that when the King was ruling and when the countries in axis were deriding at the King for his autocratic rule, we clapped and threw accolades upon those foreign envoys who criticized the King most.
However, what later became a habit that the envoys who then criticized the King began criticizing the Nepali leaders and the Maoists as well. Since we had encouraged the foreign Ambassadors to speak against the King then, they concluded that they deserve the right to pounce upon all even after the advent of Loktantra. The tragedy has been that when they pounced upon the King, we appreciated their courage and now when they as per their habit now swoop the Loktantric leaders, we dub it as interference on our internal matters.
This was our third blunder.
The countries in
For example, the
It is this country which, as much has become visible and come out in the print media of several countries, sided with the seven party alliances and brought the Maoists then residing in
What we have lost in the mean time for such a gesture from
This was our fourth blunder.
Now that there are cracks in the EPA partners, what is visible and coming to the surface is that differing ideologies can be made to converge for some time, but can’t be made one for long. The fact is that we heavily depended upon
This was the fifth blunder that the EPA excessively depended on
We are losing our lands each day. Alien security personnel have been penetrating deep into our land mass and killing innocent Nepali civilians, and “we the leaders” seated in the EPA and governing the nation have preferred not to register even a mere “protest” against the conduct of India which out and out goes against the conduct in between sovereign nations.
This is our sixth blunder.
We presume what the Forum members, the Jwala Sigh group and the Goit factions of the Madhesi leaders did in the past. What they did had already been accomplished by the Maoists. What the Maoists taught them is what exactly these agitators have been doing at the moment. The disturbances brought about by these agitating Madheshis in the Terai belt is what they have been taught by the erstwhile rebels not so in the distant past. That is why we see no reason to express our anger and hatred towards the Madhesis. They too have been, as they claim, struggling with the State for a cause. And just recall, the Maoists too have had a cause. If we can fogive the Maoists, we must do so to the Madheshis as well.
This was our seventh blunder.
The list could be stretched. However, our idea is not to defame our neighbor. What we fervently wish is that such activities must come to an end. Indian leaders must instruct their authorities not to create panic among the citizens of
We possess no ill intention towards
