18 days in Egypt; 19 days in Nepal: transformation the rationale

Unfortunately, what is historically unforgettable is that the same Rana elites, along with other new accomplices, have ruled Nepal till now under the democratic veils. The same political leaders, who fought their do-and-die battle to save monarchy and landlordly politics are at the helm of leadership in the country.


We had leapt up days and nights celebrating the victory of change-seeking people's struggles in the streets. About 15,000 people directly or indirectly lost their lives during the armed insurgency from 1996 to 2006. More than a thousand are still missing with no whereabouts. Today, the working class Nepalis are scold their parties and leaders for the maximization of market prices with no consideration for the low-earners. Smugglers and black-market forces are operating openly with the help of state mechanisms addicted to ill-governance and corruption. The parties have not shown any interest in changing the existing culture of bureaucracy. All of them have repeated what they had previously advocated.


About a dozen business tycoons, networked to thousands of their subsidiaries, rule Nepal at present. No influence of any political power is seen in making such networks work for the people and the country. To the majority of the Nepalis, it appears that the political forces no matter how powerful they sound serve the business tycoons and their subsidiary networks, contrary to the expectation of the majority of people.


The Nepalis have grown more fatalistic now than ever before. However, circumstances will definitely force them to use their collective conscience in the future to seek a better alternative. Ultimately there is nothing that does not change.


In the present context of Egypt, it is advisable that the people remain pre-cautious against deceptive and disguised forces that may derail the process of transformation. Otherwise, the Egyptians may have to undergo the sufferings that the Nepalis have been currently going through. Let the Egyptians change their society more efficiently and rapidly. The Nepalis, too, are still watchful and will go for changes as the circumstances demand.
