युरोप ले हात झिक्न मा भारत को के रोल छ?






यसमा भारत को के रोल छ? युरोप ले हात झिक्न लागेको छ। यसमा भारत को के रोल छ? भारत ले युरोप सँग कानेखुशी गरेर यस्तो भएको हो? मधेसी ले आंदोलन गर्दा भारत ले गरेको भन्ने। युरोप ले गर्दा पनि भारत ले गरेको भन।

काठमाण्डु मा भारत विरोध हुने कारण के हो?

  • देश को ५०% बजेट ५०,००० मानिस ले निजी उपभोग गर्ने कुरा को ढाकछोप। 
  • नेपालका खस १००% भारत बाट आएका मानिस भएर पनि नेपाल मा एकाधिकार जमाएर बसेको हुनु। 
  • आफ्नो असक्षमता। 


SHIFTING IDENTITIES
There is a need to deconstruct the notions of ‘Nepali’ identity and nationalism
one thing is certain—with the composite hill caste nationalist mindset of the last 250 years, especially the last 55 years—they are sure to put their countrymen through untold suffering. ..... Shekhar Golcha, the scion of one of Nepal’s leading business houses, wrote a searing Op-Ed in Kantipur a few months ago, asking what else he could do to be a Nepali even as his family, since his grandfather’s generation, had lived and introduced modern business in the country. ..... The Madhesis of Bhardah complained to journalists that in the August 24 raid in the houses of the village—in which a protester died in police shooting—the Nepal Police and Nepal Armed Police personnel abused men, women and children by calling them ‘Bihari’, ‘Madise’ and ‘Dhoti’ and asked them to go back to where they came from. Over the weekend, security forces subjected Madhesis in Rajbiraj to similar abuse. ..... Who is a true Nepali has been a burning question since the word ‘Nepali’ came into circulation in Nepal in the second half of the 20th century. ...... And in the course of the 30-year long Panchayat era, one language, one dress nationalism rooted the word and the concept it denoted.

Jung Bahadur’s Muluki Ain codified hierarchies of power and privilege based on his own state-sponsored caste system but it does not define the term Nepali

........ Nepali is an invented term of recent origin...... unshackle Nepal’s citizens from the past baggage of ‘Nepali’ identity and Nepali nationalism. ...... Just because ‘Nepali’ is an invented term does not make it harmless. ...... the term ‘Nepali’ and the concept it denotes privileges and empowers some while humiliating and excluding others. That is why many major excluded groups are demanding federal states of their own to mitigate their exclusion and co-exist with the 250-year-old, 55-year-muscularly built, Nepali-language, hill caste Nepali identity ......

How was the word—taking its origin from the Nepal Valley, which is Kathmandu—emptied of its original connotation of the culture (Newar), people (Newari) and language (Nepal Bhasa) of the Nepal Valley and came to be inhabited by Khas Kura (Khas language), and congealed into daura suruwal and topi sartorial identity out of dozens of different variants of dressing habits even in the hills?

........ Jung Bahadur’s Muluki Ain, by its privileging of the hill Brahmins and Khas Kura-speaking aristocracy may have paved the way. But

until the advent of the Panchayat system, even the official language was not common Khas Kura but a special legal lingo with lots of borrowing from the Persian of the Mughal court, special language of shresta.

...... The question the Nepali state confronts now is—can it stretch itself by expanding and inserting multiplicity into its national identity the way it shrank in its definition during the Panchayat era or since its inception in the mid-18th century? Can it shed its hang-ups or break its shackles of narrow self-definition and mono identity in which it has imprisoned itself and many inhabitants of the country, especially since 1962? In place of their own ethnic zamindars and zamindari before the advent of the Panchayat system, they want their own chief ministers and provinces with which they can identify themselves or at least feel comfortable with......... the defenders of the concept still have the power to insult the highly-educated cosmopolitan scion of a business house, frighten and humiliate the simple, powerless villagers of Bhardah or discriminate against Nepali women in bestowing citizenship to their children in their own name....... defend the term Nepali and the state Nepal at any cost but deconstruct and dismantle the concept and disabuse the concept holders at any cost to save the term and the state. Let the garden of the founder bloom in hundreds of colours if you want to save the garden.

Else, all inhabitants of the country will face unprecedented suffering and the country will face an uncertain future and risk survival in its present form.
