I fondly recall some special memories of early mornings when I was just a child more than two decades ago.

It was during those early hours that I witnessed a ritual that left an indelible mark on me.

Listen up folks, Nepal is gearing up to unleash the next national budget, and the country’s National Planning Commission (NPC) is back in the spotlight.

I mean, seriously, have you taken a gander at how much progress the country has made over the decades?
