Marriage, Citizenship, Nepal, Madhes, And The Anti-Madhesi Ideology

Image via Wikipedia
Despite the April 2006 revolution that got rid of the feudal monarchy, and two Madhesi revolutions in 2007 and 2008, and the election of April 2008 that put three major Madhesi parties on the map, the political discourse in Nepal seems to keep wanting to go back to its old tradition of virulent anti-Madhesi prejudice.

The two Bahuns Girija Koirala and Madhav Nepal ganged up and made Bijay Gachhedar Deputy Prime Minister with the express intention to split the MJF and succeeded. All those Madhesi MPs are still there, but the pro-Madhes momentum was lost due to the MJF split. The UML similarly split the Sadbhavana in the early 1990s by elevating Hridayesh Tripathy to the post of chair of the Public Accounts Committee.

Putting Parmananda Jha to the dishonor of having been elected Vice President but no longer holding office was yet another blow to the Madhes. Just like Nepali is the link language in the hills, Hindi is the link language in the Terai pl…

Ian Martin's Talk At The New School

Ian Martin: James Bond Of The UN Peacemaking Ambitions

The Peace Process in Nepal: is it failing?

Ian Martin

New School, New York

6 November 2009

I am grateful to Ashok Gurung for asking me to speak here at the New School. As you know, Ashok, it was many weeks ago that you asked me to do this, and to propose a title for my talk. Alas, I didn’t know then just how appropriate this title was going to prove by tonight. In recent days there have been calls for the revision of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, accusations and counter-accusations that it is being broken by Maoist agitation or threats of mobilization of the Army, and calling into question even of the 12-point Understanding, which was the very foundation of the peace process. It is indeed timely to ask whether the peace process is failing; if so, why; and what is required to save it.

For over three and a half years, I spoke in Nepal and on Nepal on behalf of the United Nations – first representing the High Commissione…

Burglars choose their targets. You don't want your home to be one of them.
Empty residences are easy targets. High fences or shrubs act as deterrents. Expensive items attract burglars.
Dark property with little lighting is good for burglars, they like that.Take all necessary precautions, but don't rely only on precautions.

The Baburam Interview With The WPRM

Oct. 2009
Nepal: Interview with Comrade Baburam Bhattarai
Posted by Member-WPRM (Britain)
Protracted People’s War (PPW) is a military strategy to be adopted in a semi-feudal, semi-colonial context, and, in the different context of imperialism, could be applied in a modified form even in imperialist countries. But basically the theory of PPW as developed by Mao was to be applied in semi-feudal, semi-colonial countries. That’s why the military line adopted in the case of Nepal was basically a line of Protracted People’s War, which we developed through the course of our struggle, applying it very creatively in Nepal for ten years.”
WPRM: Thank you for meeting with us today. In your article in The Worker #4 ‘The Political Economy of the People’s War’ you write that “the transformation of one social system into another, or the destruction of the old by the new, always involves force and a revolutionary leap. The People’s War is such a means of eliminating the old by a new force and of ta…
