National Anthem

राष्ट्रिय गानसयौं थूंगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली
सार्वभौम भइ फैलिएका, मेची-महाकाली ।प्रकृतिका कोटी-कोटी सम्पदाको आंचल
वीरहरुका रगतले, स्वतन्त्र र अटलज्ञानभूमि, शान्तिभूमि तराई, पहाड, हिमाल
अखण्ड यो प्यारो हाम्रो मातृभूमि नेपाल ।बहुल जाति, भाषा, धर्म, संस्कृति छन् विशाल
अग्रगामी राष्ट्र हाम्रो, जय जय नेपाल ।

Tackling Bahunbaad

You have a situation in Nepal where no matter which party wins or loses, the president is going to be a Bahun for the next 20 years. That is not a good thing.

The political proposals I have to make I have codified in the proposed constitution I have written and circulated. (प्रस्तािवत संिवधान) It is not a given that this document will gain wide acceptance. It is an uphill task. The status quoists from the 1990s are still calling the shots. Most of the appointments that have been made by the Koirala government smack of Bahunbaad plain and simple.

The non-Bahuns have their work cut out for them.

Three groups are going to have to form a strong political alliance: Dalit, Madhesi, Janajati.


The Dalits have it real tough. They are a clear case for reservations. But how do you bring about a broad empowerment of the community? How do you bring about a basic social transformation?
