KATHMANDU, JUL 09 – The Standing Committee (SC) of the UCPN (Maoist) has sacked Prakash Dahal, son of party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, from the Newa State Committee.

According to party spokesperson Dina Nath Sharma, Dahal junior was relieved of all responsibilities after serious questions were raised over his alleged relationship with Bina Magar, President of Maoist-aligned All Nepal National Independent Students Union-Revolutionary at Sarswoti Campus.

The party decided to take disciplinary action against Dahal, who has gone out of contact for the past four days, Sharma informed. The party has also initiated an investigation into the matter.

Prakash and Mina were together during their Everest expedition a few weeks ago. There were reports that the two fell in love during the expedition. After getting divorced from his first wife, Prakash has a son from his second wife.

Shouldn’t Surprise Anyone Though

School's Out Maoists In

A union of school teachers, affiliated to the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoists), demonstrated a highly “innovative” style of protest a few days ago in Saptari.

They brought all the students of a local primary school at Kalyanpur of the district to the highway and had them sit across the road, spread their books and study while blocking transportation movement.

Innovative, indeed – not that the Maoists had not used students during their political rallies (and child soldiers in their armed guerilla).

Communist Police and Communist Backed Goons

December 22, 2008

Imagine a country where both the criminals and the police are working for the ruling party of the government. That’s New Nepal.

Nepali people getting what they deserve best – getting slapped with the true nature of communism right on their (our) face!

Dance Baby Dance – A Drama in Three Acts

November 29, 2008


Act 1: Maoist Central Committee Meeting

The central committee meeting ended inconclusively.

Party chairman Puspa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda” and party’s ideologue Mohan Baidhya “Kiran” had presented two separate political proposals to determine the party’s future direction. Prachanda proposed a “Transitional Democratic Republic” model; Kiran proposed a radical “People’s Republic through Revolt” model*.

After days of meeting, the committee members could not resolve on which proposal to endorse. They are to have a discussion of the issue in the party’s general assembly, scheduled for some time next year.

At least that’s what people have been told.

Though, there’s a seeming “rift” among the Maoist central members – one for Prachanda+Baburam, another for Kiran+Gajurel. However, it was not that hard to comprehend that the rift is all but well designed propaganda, with media acting like a complete jerk.

Nepali Congress – it almost rejoiced on the news of the “rift” in the Maoist party. Opportunist, yet completely gullible!

Act 2: Maoists Cadres’ National Convention

Divided into 21 groups, some 1200 Maoist cadres got all set to discuss and finalize one of the two proposals.

Kiran’s proposal of declaring People’s Republic through a Revolt – appealed to those hard-ass-liners, radicals and extremists on the party’s frontline. Prachanda’s proposal seemed to appeal to those slightly drifting from the hardcore radicalism who had already started to grasp the idea – “you need to lick balls of the neighbors and power-nations to be in the power and when you get tired of licking balls, lick it all over again”.

So they discussed. For two days.

In the meantime, the “rift” was highlighted with jubilation in media. It was, they said, inevitable! The party is on the shameful brink of disintegration.

The designers must have had a good laugh.

Act 3: People’s Federal Democratic National Republic**

In an extraordinary turn of events, the party convention endorses Prachanda’s proposal. After five days of discussion, which had the whole nation gawking with full attention, the party cadres and central committee members agree to follow Prachanda’s proposal as the party’s future direction.

Baburam Bhattarai, thutey junga musaardai, said that the party is disintegration-proof and it will initiate its people centric work from the government, parliament and street. (What’s stopping you.. do it… please do it. Shut up and do it.)

After making everyone dance to their tune for five continuous days, the top heads ended the convention with a revolutionary exclamation mark – everyone one of them danced on the stage***.

Nothing is so delightful than a successful drama – a well executed and directed farce in three acts.

* The concept seems as ridiculous as the first ever wall president of Republic of Nepal – Prachanda. Kiran should be out of his mind. His proposal: People’s Republic through Revolt? Revolt – what revolt! His party is in the government, for Hanumaan’s sake! Has any one heard of any government revolting against itself? Revolt – for whom? for what? Ruling party revolting against what?

It beats me with its profound idiocy. The concept is palin stupid. Period.

** Somehow, it’s going to be hard for kids remembering our country’s name:
PFDNR of Nepal.


Because it’s FUN

November 21, 2008


General Strikes, Bandha and Hadtaal might be pain in the ass for some, but for those out on the streets creating havoc and terror, its pure unadulterated fun.

When one has to think about the options for recreation and entertainment for the youth of Nepal, ummm.. there are slim to none. Sports? No one plays football any more, for instance. There are no football grounds. The one inside the Dashrath Stadium is for novelty games – for a match between the comedians and musicians. WTF. WTF

Movies? What movies! No one really bothers going to cinema halls anymore. Rajesh Hamal has lost his charm. (Did he ever have any?) The new movies have Hindi titles. Buland. Balwaan. Hami Tin Bhai. Kismat. Kumari and Jai Nepal? Fuck, it’s 300 Rs.

Education? We have teachers turned into goons, vandalizing schools, beating up bus drivers and threatening students. Reading is no fun no more.

Music and musicians have degraded. Dance Restaurants are closed. We can’t go to the Casinos. The country’s only recreational park – Bhrikuti Mandap is in superb shambles.

Chanting political slogans. No fun.
Singing national anthem. No fun.
Poem. Shit.
Walking in rallies. No fun.
Getting jobs. What?
Silent protest. No fun.
Fast-till-death. Staying hungry. Out of question.

Thus, come any strikes, bandha and hadtaal – the youths rejoice, for these are the mere moments to be rejoiced about. These are divine.

In absolute lawlessness, we rejoice. There’s no rule of game. There’s only one principle.


Power to the youth!

America INVADES Nepal

November 17, 2008

George Bush

Program: BBC Nepal’s Sajha Sawal on Kantipur TV

Venue: At a ground in front of the premises of Shakti Khor, Division 3, Chitawan.
Participants: Maoist leader Barsa Man Pun “Ananta” and Nepali Congress leader (forgot the name) with some 20-30 Maoist PLA combatants, some NC party workers and general people.

Issue: The Integration of Maoist Combatants into the National Army

The moderator asks one of the female Maoist combatants.

Q: Why do you think Nepal needs any army at all?
A: To protect the country from all sorts of invasion.

Q: Who is going to invade Nepal?
A: America. The imperialist America. Just turn the pages of history, you will realize America has always been invading the countries that are not in line with America’s imperialism and capitalism.

Q: Do you really think America will invade Nepal?
A: Yes it can.

The concept of “America invading Nepal” sounds really far-fetched, funny, scary, ridiculous, childish, inevitable…

America indeed has a history of invading countries, toppling democracies, administering puppet governments. It has a history of lying to its own people while ordering bombings, inquests and genocides, all sorts of atrocities – to protect its “national interest”.

Thus, with people like this particular army general – who thinks any non-western human life is expendable – is still in abundance in America, you never know what’s next after Iraq and Afghanistan.

“The Oriental does not put the same high price on life as a Westerner. Life is plentiful, life is cheap in the Orient. The philosophy of life in the Orient expresses that life is not important.” – General William Westmoreland (Vietnam War)
Source: Hearts and Mind (1974)

Nevertheless, the concept of America invading Nepal sounds equally unrealistic and bone chilling at the same time.

The combatant’s “apocalyptic” vision is really admirable, though. Well tought by the Maoists.

November 13, 2008

There have been around 15000 deaths during the Maoist insurgency. There are hundreds of families we don’t know about how they died. Why Ramhari’s murder is this big an issue! Why a single incident of Ramhari Shrestha murder case is this important?

Well, somewhere sometime, this rampant regime of impunity has to end. Why not with Ramhari’s case! Why not now!

Ramhari Shrestha was not murdered during the insurgency. It was on May this year. The election of the Constituent Assembly was already over. He was murdered in one of the Maoists camps when the Maoists themselves were in the interim government. The UNMIN supposedly had/has a constant vigilance on the Maoists camps and cantonments. It happened right under the UNMIN’s watchful arse. That’s why this case is special.

The commission formed to investigate into Ramhari’s murder confirmed the involvement of three of the Maoists’ army commanders in his death. The Supreme Court ordered the three suspects be brought to justice. The Maoists tops said the three had been suspended from their People’s Liberation Army but never did try to hand them over to the police.

That was then.

Everyone, including the media, had almost forgotten Ramhari’s incident until reports started coming into the media about Minister for Defense Ram Bahadur Thapa “Baadal” meeting with one of the major suspect – Kali Bahadur Kham Magar a.k.a. Bibidh – at a public function in Chitawan.

Of course Maoist leader Baadal vehemently denied the news. If Baadal has lied in the parliament, he sure has the guts to act up. It’s no big deal some how.

The big deal is – the current Home Minister knows where the prime suspect is hiding. Is he even hiding? What our honorable Home Minister Bamdev Gautam insists is that “he wants to apprehend the suspect” but “there are technical constraints and the Police does not have the reach everywhere and everytime”.

That’s Bamdev’s extreme helplessness or absolute lameness. Whatever the reality is, he is too busy kissing Maoist ass. It’s just a complete mockery.

Sometimes Bamdev displays his supremacy, for instance, by wiping out the street vendors from the streets and thoroughfares of Kathmandu without any prior notice or alternative. Or when he roars with utmost confidence that “cyber cafes are the major centers of crimes and he will meticulously strike them down one by one”; and when he claims so arrogantly during public programs and inaugurations that he is unlike other Home Minister and is going to curb the criminal activities and bring the crime rates down significantly within the three months of his tenure, he seems to be in the command of the country’s police force and the criminals seem to be wetting their pants.

With just a little technical glitch.

Should he nab Bibidh? Yes.
Must he nab Bibidh? Yes, he has to protect his reputation.
Does he want to nab Bididh? May be.
Will he nab Bibidh? NO. He simply does not want to spoil his nice little productive profitable camaraderie with the Maoists.

Should the Maoists make it easier by handing Bibidh over to the police? Yes. If they are smart enough!
Will they make it easier by handing Bibidh to the police? No.
They best slit the guy’s throat, chop him up and pack him up in a ricebag and throw the bag down the river.

Case dismissed.
