As we predicted earlier last week, political settlement still remains elusive in the country. Given the current political trend, the nation is unlikely to see the change of guard of the present government any time soon. Whether political leaders hold the elections or revive the CA, Nepal’s political instability is likely to continue for some years to come. Although the country has been passing through a series of political instability, Nepal’s business leaders organized an international conference of business leaders of Asia-Pacific Chambers of Commerce and Industry. This conference helped boost the confidence of international investors. We have covered this and all other contemporary issues of the last fifteen days. However, we decided to make Trishuli 3 A and its issue of Augmentation as the cover story for this issue. We discuss different aspects of augmentation of Trishuli 3 A and its costs and benefits on Nepal’s own perspective. All is not well in the country. However, the festive mood of Dashain has already made people jubilant and the market has already surged because of buying spree for the festival. New Spotlight family wishes all its subscribers, patrons, well wishers and readers Happy Dashain 2069.
