Sometimes, unforgettable incidents occur in our lives. Some incidents even spoil people’s lives. For example, there is nobody to support a child if his/her parents die. Street kids can be seen indulging in substance abuse to escape life’s harshness. This happens because there is no one to guide or support such kids.

Government change is a normal practice in a parliamentary system. Recently Britain and France have witnessed the change in government after elections for parliament and president. However, core principles of foreign policies still remain intact. As is evidenced by historical facts, Nepal does not have a consistent foreign policy. With the change in government, foreign policy also gets affected.  Now, people in Nepal are worried about the possibility of the same history repeating itself again with the change of government and Sher Bahadur Deuba becoming the new Prime Minister. Such skepticism is generated because of past records, which show change in core policy of Nepal after the change of government. Whether the replacement of Prachanda-led government by Deuwa-led one will uphold the previous agreements reached with China, is a question frequently raised in Nepali intelligentsia.

A Home Away from Home

As far back as I can remember, whenever my semester report card came out, I would always proudly show it to my dad. He would smile lightly, congratulate me on a job well done and then warn me that I would need to study even more next semester to keep progressing.

We fought the system, the governance, challenged the system by putting self-made amateur cricket careers on the line and still nothing has changed. Everyone appears to know the cure here yet no one even vaguely attempts to address the disease.
