Following India's example blindly can be construed as the authorities' incapability of formulating independent strategies.

The balancing act

In 2019, Nepal seems to have adopted a non-aligned foreign policy that has seen it stuck. Hopefully, next year will see Nepal utilise its relationship with both to achieve prosperity at last.

Such a shame

The police today, too, is trying to protect the relatives of some ‘democratic Maharajas’ who masquerade as people's representatives.

Superb work

As I have looked through your website, I have managed to piece together a more complete visuality of your beautiful city and it's people--which I look forward to making a reality when I visit.

Food first, taste later

Perhaps we need to instead shift our attention to actually talking about food, and stop clamouring over ‘good taste’, because, in the end, that is only a show of class anxiety.

Clean energy future

Energy from hydroelectric power stations is environmentally friendly and cheap in the long term.

Step in the right direction

Nepal's natural beauty, culture and history should be opened up to the world in a coordinated manner, including learning from global practices in the field.

Elephants don't give rides willingly--these highly intelligent, socially complex animals are first subjected to violent training programmes

The KP Oli administration is eager to diversify air routes, especially to Asia and Europe. This can happen, provided CAAN will be divided into two entities.

Portable idea

Some of the large retail pharmacy stores in South Africa do have a system where shoppers can buy packets of pads and then donate them to a drive that provides them to girls in poverty-stricken areas.

Too diplomatic

Now that Nepal has bettered bilateral relations with China in recent years, India too has become more responsive in its dealing with us.

Zombie industries must die

No wonder these zombie industries must die. But I seriously doubt that the present government has the guts to act.
