Gandhipath and Prachandapath

April 5, 2008

Prachanda’s speeches are usually entertaining – with a healthy mix of childish whining and day dreaming, based on rather quixotic scenario for his future. With not more than a week for the constituent assembly elections, there he goes, one more time at the same old Open Theater, roaring like a lion.

Nepal – the Richest Country in TWO decades

Interview with Maoists Chairman Prachanda

Q. Earlier you used to talk about making Girjababu the founder president, but lately there are talks about you yourself becoming the president. What is the truth?
