Voice Of The People
Jun 17, 2013-WHY GO?
First of all, we would like to know what the problem is (‘Prez Yadav off to Japan on medical trip’, June 17, Page 1). Secondly, has faith in Nepali doctors been lost or are they incapable? There are certainly plenty of specialists in Nepal. The President’s move will raise serious questions about the ability of Nepali doctors. Ram Baran Yadav is the President of Nepal so if he had been treated in Nepal then it would have lifted the morale of the people and allowed them to trust Nepali doctors.
I am not pro-Maoist or Congress but clamouring about other’s cons will not cleanse your sins and increase your virtue (‘UCPN (M) are the root of all problems’, June 17, The Kathmandu Post online). What about all those Congress leaders who have accumulated wealth? Some escaped to other parties while others are still under the protection of Nepali Congress. Khum Bahadur Khadka,
JP Gupta, Bijay Kumar Gachhadar all sought to abuse power and accumulate wealth. The only problem is that Nepali people do not have good choices,therefore, they have to choose the bad ones from the worst.
Whatever the level of corruption or property you have amassed, it is the democratic polity which will indict wrongdoers. No other system can convict the culprits other than the democratic polity. A one party dictatorship or authoritarian rule never convicts its corrupt cadres and instead tries to camouflage its
wrongdoings. Leaders who have
been convicted and jailed are the results of the anti-graft act and the media. This can happen only in a democratic and open environment. So besides some demerits of democracy, democratic forces should be voted for if anyone desires a prosperous and strong Nepal.
Raj Kumar Baral has attempted to discover a new genre, which can help us enrich our literature and give impetus to delve into folk traditions and cultures (‘Vehicle vernacular’, June 16, Page 7). Furthermore, truck literature, as quipped by the writer, has great significance since it details the life sketches of drivers—their loves and sorrow, their psychology—along with nationalistic and even universal ethos. I would like to suggest that Baral research more on it for other truck literature enthusiasts.
