    Nepal: In a Democracy, it is always up to the People.
    Nepal lacks infrastructure, education and a proper appreciation of citizens’ duties to their nation. There is a lot of talk and expectation about citizens’ rights and government’s duties. Similarly, there is an unprincipled bargaining attitude bordering onto less acceptable methods of expectation of international gratification: all this is based on an arrogant and uninformed appreciation of the country’s strategic worth to its neighbours! If the neighbours fail to humour this vanity, the country rises in protest!
    If Nepal wishes to advance, then it must improve infrastructure and education at home. Significantly, the Nepalese economy must find a market to absorb its primary economic tradeble resource: hydro-electricity. This is the key to the development of Nepal.
    Individuals, institutions and forces which have contributed to creating bottlenecks or have otherwise choked off the lucrative hydro-electricity economy in Nepal are the real enemies of Nepal. Most of these hostile forces are to be found in the bureaucracy in Kathmandu, extortion groups and project sites, foreign diplomatic legions which are competing for the same commercial markets in South Asia which cheap Nepalese Hydro-power could supply and monopolise. Sadly, the Nepalese people, their politicians and their government are all gullible and have proved to be suceptible to this strategic undermining of Nepal in the name of diplomatic imperatives.
