        The man raised his head and looked at them. These are strange nightingales, he thought. I have seen this species of birds but never like them. Then what are they? Nightingales, I’m sure they are not. Perhaps they are the messengers from god, or maybe they are the lost fragments of my past. Or maybe they are just birds, a new species of them. “Whatever,” he whispered to himself and abandoned the thought

        Hundreds of Flowers, One Nepali Garland

        David Caprara
        When members of the Nepal government decided to finally put forth a new constitution this year, it is highly unlikely that they had anticipated the ocean of Madhesi protests that have come to engulf Terai. One can imagine that the passing of the new constitution was supposed to be something exclusively symbolic—a ribbon of hope pinned to a year of devastation brought forth by the April and May earthquakes.

        New power

        It seems that we, the people, can’t do anything about the blockade except watch the ping pong match that is happening between our incompetent government and Madhesi-Tharu politicians. Our good-for-nothing clowns have been holding talks to resolve the crisis but it seems that they are only getting together for the free doodh chiya and biskoot. They are not really interested to find ways to compromise and end the ‘black market’ festival.
