Nepal: Politics and Students

United We Blog! on university and college students in politics – “After declaring many parts of Kathmandu restricted for political demos, imposing DAYTIME curfew in the capital city to thwart a pro-democracy rally, suspending landlines, wireless and mobile phones, the government has finally closed down the country’s largest university for two weeks by extending the regular vacation that ended Monday.”

  • Interesting article. Better class in the streets than throwing stones in the streets, I would think. Perhaps this is one way to keep the peace– have class in the streets! Sure, it would block traffic, but what’s a little sacrifice like this for the good of the young uns?
