Two big shifts – military and economic – are now defining the current change that is re-shaping the old post-WW-II international order which will make the 21st Century very different from the second half of the 20th Century. In one sense, one has to now go back to reading Rosa Luxemburg to understand the political economy behind 2+2 Dialogue or other similar moves against Iran or Russia or China.

One hopes that this situation will now change. Some who had gone to distant lands to work have come back with the realisation that if they worked as hard as they were forced to toil in distant lands, they would earn enough for their needs. It is these countrymen who we have help to be able to stand on their own feet. They are taking innovative steps, such as doing agriculture with minimal water or growing new varieties of fruits and vegetables. Sometime ago a vernacular daily gave news of the move to get each household of Nepal to plant or two lime trees in their compound so as to ensure a year round supply of the fruit and to reduce imports from elsewhere.
