Telegraph Nepal, Editorials
We have heard of stupid and their acts which are generally known as stupidity. However, unfortunately so far we have failed to meet any such person (face to face) whom we could adjudge that he or she was a stupid. We lag far behind. For us, each and every Nepali national is our intelligent brother even the stupid ones, if any. It is because we think that those who are stupid ones must have been awarded with pulsating soul and heart by Goddess Durga Bhavani and so we treat them as equals even in doing so we too at times have being dubbed as number one stupid. After all it is a democracy of its own kind that we have through the kind courtesy of the most infamous 12 point Nepal-India Treaty. Whether we are or not, how we can tell about ourselves. It should be the onerous task of those who see all others around as stupid ones. Care must be taken when taking others as stupid. There is the danger of being dubbed as the same eventually. Newtonian third law applies.
We don’t know how to dub one as stupid? What characteristics do the stupid possess? Have they landed in this earth from the outer space? For example, from Mars or Jupiter or even Saturn?
Yes! What at best is taken for granted that stupid and stupidity go together? If one is not a stupid then how he can exhibit his or her stupidity? We guess these two words have great connections since ancient times perhaps from the beginning of the civilization.
So this should mean that though Nepal is tentatively taken as among the first few nations located in the globe ( in fact Nepal falls within the first fifteen nations as Professor Anand Aditya authentically claimed at a Telegraph Weekly seminar some two years ago) we have had enough stupid in those days whose generations are ruling today’s Nepal? Can’t be dismissed as things stand today.
We think yes! Their lineage perhaps is ruling us all mercilessly which is unfortunately associated with NOIDA spice and magnanimity.
James F. Moriarty knew about some of the Stupid Nepali nationals. Alas he is not in Nepal or else he could have named some. At least he would have picked up some from the Sudan Darfur scam. The task now lay with Peter W. Boddy-the new US Ambassador.
Now let’s come to the point. Madhav Kumar Nepal of the grand election defeat fame from two separate constituencies just the other day opined that unless Chairman Dahal changes his shaky behavior, the country, we mean the parties, can’t have consensus. In an implied manner, Mr. Nepal wished to take former NOIDA veteran as dull. (Prachanda Ko Buddhi Firey Sahamati Huncha anyatha Hudaina is what he said in Nepali). It was just not a fair allegation Mr. Nepal! But yet analysts at this paper are not in a disheartened mood concluding that the one, who is himself a stupid, recognizes his or her close compatriots easily. After all birds of same feather flock together. Natural phenomenon.
But yet we could not digest Mr. Nepal taking people’s war veteran as a stupid. Instead Chairman Dahal is the single Nepali political personality who has lured several nations across the globe and kept them all guessing as to of which metal he was made up of? What an intellect? What a sharp brain par excellence?
While in India, Dahal is more Indian than late Mahatma Gandhi. Similarly, when he lands in Peking, he becomes instantly the most nearest and dearest ideologue-disciple of late Chairman Mao-Tse Tung and the men, in the process, both in Peking and Nai Dilli take him as their family members. No less an adventurous job indeed to keep two neighboring giants in a dilemma that is never ending. Thanks for the follies of the two emerging economic giants that Nepal has fortunately one son of the soil who is flirting with both at a time.
A man of such high intelligence and caliber can’t be a stupid as Mr. Nepal claimed just the other day. Interestingly, as and when Madhav Nepal makes a trip abroad, (that should necessarily be free at some one’s cost because he never travels on his own) and upon his return to Kathmandu, he inevitably finds himself taller than his present day colleagues who, including Mr. Nepal, apparently have vowed that they will collectively ruin Nepal so that Nepal no longer remains in the world map. The process is in progress. This could be a collective promise while signing 12 point Treaty. What is the harm in presuming this?
Finally, with the Bijaya Dashami festival already knocking Nepali doors, let’s vow now that we will remain Nepali nationals, whether stupid or otherwise, and commit and dedicate ourselves in the larger interest of the nation in a combined manner. We appeal the entire community of the Nepali politicians to shun their differences and work for the benefit of the nation. Let’s not take others as stupid ones. Such low level exercises degrade our own dignity and honor that is still left with us. Attention Mr. Nepal. Try to behave with your immediate colleagues who elevated you to this rank-who is Chairman Dahal. Or else you were an election defeated candidate.
Prior to we sum up, we pray Goddess Durga Bhavani to bless all the Nepali corrupts so that this lot ultimately enters into the net of the legal body when enough becomes really enough.
We also wish a very happy Dashami to all our august readers, (also to the advertising agencies who have vowed not to support us in any manner), commentators and the team of the Telegraph/telegraphnepal.com who have elevated our ranks globally and thus we command prestige. In effect it is this set of people who deserve our deep appreciation without their support, our paper and the news portal would have already died a premature death.
See you all after two weeks. Enjoy the festival but with care.
