At a time when some student unions are vandalizing schools and buses, sending terror inside the classroom, the entire society is helplessly watching as if it is justifiable in a civilized world. The concerned political parties are yet to denounce the acts of vandalism. Is Nepal’s politics heading towards criminalization? This week’s edition looks into the state of school education as the cover story. As the world economy is heading towards a major recession, Nepal will also have to face serious economic repercussions. Nepalese political leaders are, however, busy to settle the political differences. If the global economy continues to decline, the countries like Nepal will have to face a severe crisis. Since Nepal's economy depends upon remittances, the slow economic growth will badly affect the demand of the Nepalese workers. Along with political disputes, Nepal's political leadership also needs to look at the economic agenda as global economy will definitely hit the Nepalese economy. Despite several efforts, however, they have yet to find a consensus on the political deadlock.

Nepal's political parties have preferred to run the government under the process of selection.

We have also covered the tourism sector, particularly the government's decision not to renew the resorts and hotels inside the Chitwan National Park. This decision will badly affect Nepal's tourism sector.
