The Preamble highlights that the Constitutional Act is being ordained and promulgated by the Maharaja Padma Shamsher and not His Majesty King Tribhuvan, who remained on the titular status as an effect of the Panjapatra of 1956. It is pertinent to study the preamble of the Government of Nepal Act by reflecting on its main phrases, expressions, and themes.

The Government of Nepal Act 1948 is one of the few constitutional legal instruments before the 1950-51 revolution that contained a preamble. It is meant to be an introductory and expressionary statement explaining the document's object, purpose, underlying philosophy and the reasons for its enactment. As a preliminary part of the statute, the preamble contextualized the contents of the rest of the document for its readers.

Apprehended serious disruption in Chinese supply chain could push up currently depressed global inflation level. Let us hope the current level of inflation in Nepal (6.4 percent) does not gallop and pray that Lord Pashupatinath protects us from the current virus as we were saved in 2003 from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), originating in China, which spread to scores of countries in Asia but Nepal.

The British constitution has been the source of inspiration for many countries in the world. It had a long and arduous history. The Ranas of Nepal knew about the British constitution and its parliamentary system. At times, the Ranas connived that they too had the desire to introduce a similar system in Nepal. Padma Shamsher, for example, talked about the parliamentary system in 1947 very clearly. The issue here is to what extent his Government of Nepal Act 1948, which he so passionately introduced, as the first Constitution of Nepal, was influenced by British traditions.
