Drunken New Nepal
Nepal as a nation-state has opted to go in for a grand slide. The process is in progress. Reflections of the slide have begun coming to the fore which more often than not been entertaining the general population.
Though the slide was a foregone conclusion for some understandable reasons.
Morning shows the day, it has rightly been said by elders.
Free entertainment continues. The audience is also increasing with each hilarious and at times ugly incidents which have become already the hallmark of new Republican system of governance. Some more thrilling and ad nauseating events may be in the pipeline. “We the people” have been waiting to see the slither which is in essence taking a dangerous turn each day flushed with nation insulting news. Bear with it friends. As we have sown, so will we have to reap?
Is it that the seeds we selected were a rotten ones? Perhaps the fault lay with “we the people”. Let’s admit our faults honestly.
We invited some six hundred plus representatives of “we the people” to chart our destiny. Instead of writing the fate of the rejected and the oppressed ones, our own elevated men have begun cheating “we the people” under one pretext or the other. Thanks the free Nepali media that these hair-raising incidents with ugly notes were being made available for public consumption each morning without fail.
Some incidents compel one to laugh. Yet others forces one to chew our respective tongues. People those who listen to these sad happenings have no option other than to kick their heads onto the concrete walls. After all one can’t remain in a state of continued anger and frustration and thus it demands resorting to some relief measures.
Let’s come to the point.
Some Constituent Assembly members, as reported by the intelligent Nepali media, were found to have involved themselves in corrupt practices. Some were engaged in influencing the Home Ministry officials for the transfer of their preferred Police officials to some lucrative places as against hefty amounts. Some have landed in prison as well. Some were inhaling oxygen at the CIAA premises after the police cell.
ANULOM-BILOM clears the lungs, we have been told by Gram Dev Baba.
Yet some more were found in selling their diplomatic passport to the ones who could flush them, read the Nepal CA members, with astronomical amount. The less smart ones who sold such passports have landed in Police custody and a deep investigation is in progress to locate others who too could have sold such diplomatic passports as against hefty amounts.
While writing this editorial, we have been informed that some six CA members have already been told by the Commission of Abuse of Authority, CIAA, to surrender their passports to the investigating authorities.
A fresh scam begins that may wrap some more high flying CA members from perhaps the NC and the UML camp as well. Later, let’s presume, the Maoists will be dragged by the CIAA.
Justice too would demand that the CIAA initiate necessary actions to find out whether the NC, UML and the Maoists men too were not engaged in the same businesses? After all these parties too have some leaders who need quick money. Why not then to initiate similar investigations to approach to those who preferred to forsake their grand old poverty stricken lives.
The CIAA has now strongly filed a writ against Mr. Yadav and Ms. Sah at an upper Special Court demanding that these two guilty CA members be fined and jailed for thirteen years or so. In addition, their CA membership stands suspended.
Interesting developments have dominated the political scene to the extent that nobody now talks of politics but listens to the FM stations as to whether it had some more juicy news of the sort mentioned above. The slide is for real.
Frankly speaking, the Constituent Assembly body has already become a money spinning machine. It is this clear advantage that the CA members have been deliberately delaying the Constitution drafting process.
Quick money advantage and that too with such finesse? But for how long?
Prior to summing it up, one more hilarious incident right the other day that happened in Nepalgunj. A female CA member in a drunken state created a ugly scene which not only entertained the locals but it also provided the Nepali media with a golden opportunity to pounce upon her and her erratic acts that she may have committed during her drunken state.
But our attention has been drawn to this drunken lady’s drunken statement wherein she mentions that her life was under serious threat posed by her own husband. Will the dollar/euro earning female NGO activists collect the courage to go deeper into what she has said?
Could be she was speaking correct. Will the countries pumping money to the high flying NGO/INGOs tell their men to find out the truth?
Let’s presume they will not.
Thus the grand slide has begun forcing us all to hope that the most chaotic of it all may be in the pipeline. Drunken new Nepal.
When the Almighty wishes to penalize some then he first makes the man to go mad. This is what the famous Latin adage tells. The message lay here.
