Contextualising development

In July this year, I was part of a 15-member delegation from the Nepali Congress (NC) on a visit to the People’s Republic of China on invitation of the Chinese Communist Party (CPC). On our flight to Chengdu, playing ‘hide and seek’ with the clouds and snow-clad mountains, we flew over the vast arid plateau of the Tibetan Autonomous Region—the roof the world. At the time, we had marvelled over the remote and desolate landscape, but unbeknownst to us, the landscapes we were flying over, and China’s endeavour to transform it, would feature again, and prominently, on our week-long visit.
