It is clear that the perambulatory commitment of the Act is vast, and more or less, typical of such power sector regulatory bodies in the region. It tries to capture most of the essential regulatory areas that a commission of this nature usually works on.

"HMG shall have every right to withdraw for irrigation and for any other purpose in Nepal water from the Kosi river and from the Sun-Kosi river or within the Kosi basin from any other tributaries of the Kosi river as may be required from time to time. The Union ( it indicates India ) shall have the right to regulate all the balance of supplies in the Kosi river at the barrage site thus available from time to time and to generate power in the Eastern Canal."

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.

Citizens have shown dissatisfaction due to the increase in taxes. Local tax has also been increased on registration of vital statistics, citizenship recommendation, settlement, education, drinking water and waste. Citizens have expected improvements in service delivery under federalism, but there has been a burden in taxation without improvement in service delivery.

It is a big disappointment that, contrary to the information provided by the Ministry of Finance, revenue collection suffered a setback, which had been exceeding the target each year in the last decade. It may be noted that the ministry had stated in a press conference that revenue collection last year had exceeded the target by Rs. 2 billion to reach Rs.732 billion but data made available by Nepal Rastra Bank and the Financial Comptroller General Office show that revenue collection in the year was only Rs. 726 billion, clearly showing that it fell sort of target for the first time in a decade. It would be unfair to put the entire blame for the debacle on the current dispensation because most parts of the last fiscal year, Oli and Khatiwada were not managing state affairs but they definitely owe public an apology for the misleading information formally provided in a press conference organized by the ministry soon after the annual closing.

The hug might have appeared 'immature’ to some but it did its job pretty well. Gandhi’s speech focused on how the BJP was practising politics of hate and how the Congress, on the other hand, was in no mood to engage in divisiveness, polarization or revenge.

Another Nepali adage says paap dhuri bata karaunchha (or sins get heralded from rooftops). The sins of the party and its neo-feudal bosses, who were beneficiaries of all these most un-socialist, un-Marxist or un-Maoist shenanigans, have been exposed, taking with them not just their reputation but that of their senior ministers, journalists and PONGO chieftains, journalists and women's rights activists.

The India that we know now, did not exist though there were references to Bharat Barsha! There are records stating that when Bir Shumsher sent the four yearly delegations with gifts to China, the Emperor at Peking sent back in return tea plants with suggestions to propagate its plantation in different parts of the country and to brew its leaves for a drink that was very beneficial to health.

Living away from home since a very young age can be an exciting yet challenging experience. Away from the comforts of home, creating a space of your own in a novel place can be intimidating at the very beginning. The new place welcomes you with its people, making you the judge of who you wish to connect to and that’s your chance at creating a home away from home.

During this ongoing period, the enthusiastic Mayor of Kathmandu invited the China Railway 25 Bureau Group, of state owned China Railway Construction Company (CRCC) to repeat a feasibility study, to be completed in six months time. The Mayor’s hope is for the project to be completed during his tenure!

Thanks God at least pitiable conditions of roads in the Valley have finally attracted the attention of our Prime Minister who has instructed the concerned minister and authorities to correct the road conditions immediately. People may be remembering that his predecessor Deuba, just some days after assuming power, had also instructed the authorities to fill up ditches and improve the road condition within 15 days. The only difference between the two instructions is that while Deuba issued his order with a distinct timeline, Oli’s instructions this time around do not contain a quantifiable time frame. Very appropriately, therefore, people have begun to find recurrence of meaningless instructions of our top leaders in power laughable.
