Another interesting piece by Thomas Bell (Blockade Politics in Nepal,
Al Jazeera, 09 OCT 15), although I'm not sure that any country deserves

resulting in an unsatisfactory constitution.
Most diplomats and
politicians in Nepal play a self-serving game of realpolitik as salt is
pouring into the heavy wounds of the year--shamefully as Dashain
(Nepal's most important festival) approaches.
“Like the snowy Himalaya The virtuous shine from afar. And the wicked move unseen Even When Near Like arrows in the night.” – from the Dhammapada (Pakinnakavagga) of Sakyamuni Buddha born in Lumbini, Rupandehi District, Nepal
