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.

The Ranas of Nepal, including Prime Minister Padma Shamsher, had a decent official and personal relationship with the rulers of British India. The Ranas were more exposed to British India than to any other government or people, including historical Tibet, China and the United Kingdom. As such, the Ranas had the opportunity to learn from the British due to historical military ties as well as trade and wartime collaborations. Disregarding the quality of democracy and the status of human rights in Britain, the British in India had created their own (usually inferior) constitutional legal subsystems befitting their colonial ambitions. Therefore, the quality of their laws, institutions and administration were compromised in the colonial territories.

Nepal and historical Tibet have shared a longstanding relationship. Tibet remained a country without a written constitution, until its status changed to an autonomous province of China. The Tibetan system did not contain elements that could have contributed to the development of a constitutional framework as derived by Padma Shamsher.
