Nepal has been passing through a very critical period of uncertainty with no possibility of any political compromise soon. If the political parties fail to agree on what to do after November 22, the nation will inevitably face another political and constitutional crisis. The political situation is likely to be more chaotic. In this context, we have looked at the ongoing political stalemate and crisis looming in the horizon. We have often said that prolonged political crisis is a gift of Nepal’s geo-strategic location. However, geostrategic location is the security shield of Nepal’s continuity as an independent and sovereign nation as well. Had Nepal’s political leaders shown maturity and moved cautiously, Nepal would not have landed in the present mess. If they fail to reckon the past mistakes, the country will suffer again. This political story is the cover story of this week. We analyze pros and cons of the coming crisis in store for times after November 27. Similarly, there is also the coverage on the prospect of Nepal’s agriculture in the context of the World Food Day. Along with this, this issue also includes economic and development agenda and regular columns. As all the Nepalese are in a festive mode, we would like to express our happy Dipawali, New Year and Chhath greetings to all our customers.
