A Short Story: Stink Tsunami

May 13, 2008

You all must have already heard about it – the meeting of the Constituent Assembly (1) will not take place in the parliamentary building inside Singha Durbar, but instead it will be held inside (B)ICC, New Baneshwor.

The reason they say is that the parliament building has the seating capacity of around 400 only and thus to accommodate all the 601 CA members, the cabinet has decided to rent (B)ICC hall.

However, these politicians have once again duped us gullible Nepali people – we have been kept in utter dark, darker than the darkest Rana reign.

The main reason is the Stink Tsunami. Yes. Based on research and interviews with some disgruntled government employees, here’s the real story.

We all know how deplorable a state government toilets are in. (No not the public toilets in Ratna Park or Bhrikuti Mandap – which are just a total different story) Lucky are those blessed few in the higher posts (ministers/directors/secretaries) who get to brag about their “attached” toilets in their office rooms.

Worse is, if you are a woman. It’s easier for their male counterparts. Since there are lots of small shrub jungles all around Singh Durbar premises, male species could just relieve themselves any where. Stand and deliver!

However, it’s not that easier for women. So, women in government offices have long been complaining about better and cleaner toilets but their sanitation tribulations have been well ignored by the administration.

Now with almost 33% women in the Constituent Assembly who will be pulling the rein of the “new” Nepal in a very decisive way, some influential female lawmakers met with women government employees and planned to capitalize on this perfect transition period. Thus they convened at a “futpathey” tea-shop just outside Singha Durbar premises and decided to launch an indefinite phase wise protests until their woes and cries are heard and dealt with by the government.

Vikashananda opts for a Knock Out

Prachanda and Vikashananda

I have never played Boxing – but I can imagine how a boxer might feel like when, out of a sudden and out of a freaking blue – you receive a sucker punch that knocks you out cold for good.

THIS was the “sucker punch” move (almost) perfectly executed by Vikashananda on the Nepali media. Wait, plan and execute. Ingenious!

Manokranti = Bare Ass Propaganda

February 25, 2008

(I am writing this with extreme respect for meditation and yoga)

Last week, some lucky people of Kathmandu witnessed a glorious farce in front of the Gorkhapatra Corporation, New Road where a bunch of Manokranti followers stripped naked and protested against the Nepali media for not publishing news about their numerous – what they claimed as – “incredible feats”.

They were holding placards written “Stop Yellow Journalism”, “where is the news about world cycle tour”, “where is the news about underground meditation”, “where is the news about walking on the fire”, “where is the news about 12 hours continuous speech”, “where is the news of Manokrantiversity” and also demanded “National acknowledgement/approval for Manokranti Philosophy” among others.

I do not care who this character “Dr. Yogi Vikashananda” is – nor do I care what his “vision”, “teaching” and “philosophy” are. I have nothing against his personal life and activities. He is entitled to his freedom of speech, opinion and pursuit. I do not care what his definition of “manokranti” (translation = revolution of self) is, nor do I care what they do inside their Manokranti Matrix Gurukul.

DOYAKWANSHI (democracy)


Goru haru kai cha ahile je cha. Uniharu lai nai lageko cha manokranti ko rahar, maha-adhibesh ko lahad. Aba Bikashananda ji lai nai sodhnu parla – manchey haru auchan ki audainan? Ki Baba Ramdev le lagyo sabai grahak haru?

Testai hamro Parjatantra Party ka neta ji haru lai pani goru le po lakhetna thaleko ho ki? Kahile kangress le, kahile commnist le ani kahile purai 7 party le lakhetirako bela ma aba yo nathey goru le pani!
