Where are we moving?

This is the question that is also answer and a visionary direction to most of the chaos  of current days in Nepal. If every one of us could ask this question to ourself with keeping aside all the prejudices, biases and dilemma about what we want and how we can achieve it, we will get most of the answers from the question itself.

It was good to know, sooner we are getting constitution. The matter of federalism has made me excited. Though I was dissatisfied with the way that state were divided .Though I was angry with the way that my district was divided but I was praising  political party for their bold decision to bring out the constitution of my nation , the nation which was never colonized ,the nation which had great history of bravery in the world war ,the nation of ultimate peace and kind hospitality, the nation of Lord Buddha, the nation of highest peak of the world and thousands so on . I am sorry that if I go on describing about my nation, I don’t think I can complete this article tonight .

I was searching each and every history and identity of each state. I was studying how these state can be made more and more prosperous .Though  there was huge dissatisfaction on me about the way of division. But I was seeing fine silver shinning behind the dark clouds .I was seeing prosperity and development of my people  in near future .I was in the hope people will coordinate and go hand in hand for the prosperity and development of their state. But after these continuous bandh,  I am faulted everything positives which I had dreamed about my nation and state is just moving away from me. Everything that was colourful is being converted into black and white. This bandh really had forced me to live in nightmare .The nightmare where my nation is going and where we Nepalese are moving. The nation which should empower itself in good infrastructure, good education and good health services for  its people, the nation which should move ahead along with growing economy China and India. Where are we moving? Can these bandh take to the destiny where we have dreamed to be and wished ? Does it help in attaining the double-digit economy growth rate? What might be the reason behind Nepalese entrepreneur’s extension of their business around the world? Do we have sufficient industries here or are we the larger exporters? And the most important question is that what type of culture are we building up?

It’s the time to think. Every citizen and the youth of technology and internet should be aware about the fact where are we moving .I remembered a quote by Napoleon “The world suffers a lot. Not because of violence of bad people, but because of the silence of good people.”So we must think about this quote. We citizens , who have   faith on ourselves that we are good and what we want is peace, prosperity  and development of our country .It’s the time to think .It’s the time to bring alternatives to bandh .If Sri-lankan economy , literacy rate and a major one human development index (HDI) couldn’t be affected by its civil war . Same as, our GDP, our education and our development should also not be affected in the name of owns right. We must think alternative of bandh . Halting everything else transportation , school-collages , industry  and so on , I don’t think it’s good way to ask for owns rights .We too may have learnt in our social studies that other should not be disturbed while using owns rights.

What had happened to the people who find difficult for hand to mouth? Do we have right to stop their food? What is child right? Stopping the child to gain education, is this what we Nepali had signed in UN child rights act? So it’s the time to act we all youth should think about it .We need to have alternative to bandh.

    Yea, absolutely. Being a fellow citizen it always makes me sad about the current situation of our country. Over a decade Banda has been like a trend to show unsatisfaction but no one is concerning about the bad impacts.Low rate of developmnent is an embodiment of this.As you said, this kind of act will certainly jeoparadise our lives, and will surely lead our country to nightmare.we always spend time by scolding leaders but have we ever realised about the responsibilites of ours??? We should pursuit the alternatives of Bandh and should pursue the path of peace and development. Bandh shouldn’t only be mitigated, it sholuld be totally abolished.
