Nepal’s main discourse is full of prediction and assumption about the promulgation of the new constitution. Given the analysis on the basis of hard reality of Nepalese politics, we have been saying for quite a long time that the promulgation of new constitution by January 22 is unlikely. This is virtually the reality now. What we can say at the moment is that the political parties will issue a statement at the final hour that they will need some more time to make consensus happen. However, our view is a bit different. We have been saying that whether there is a constitution or not, Nepal’s current political instability will not go away for some time to come. As the political course is taking its own way, we have decided to make Upper Tamakosi as our cover story. At a time when the Nepalese capital is witnessing full-fledged political bargaining, demonstrations and unending debates over the constitution, the situation in Gongar and Lamabagar, Dolakha District, 250 kilometers of north east, close to border with Tibetan Autonomous Region of China, is very different. The people there don’t have the time to stop or wait for constitution. The remote part of the village below Gauri Shanker Himalaya is full of activity as seen in the movement of vehicles, machineries and laborers, foremen and engineers, working deep inside the tunnel and dam sites, day and night, to complete the project by July 2016. One of the positive sides of the project is that it faces a little political intervention from the center. This is paving the way for early completion. We look at the various sides of the project. As Nepal is celebrating the 17th Earthquake Safety Day (ESD) with various programs, we also look at Nepal’s overall disaster scenario. Along with these, there are also routine political, economic and other topics of interest in this issue.
