The Nepalese opposition movement in Indian soil against the Ranas did not seek British support or mediation in working out a democratic deal with the Ranas. Rather, the opposition movement found common interests with the Indians fighting against the British. This gave a golden opportunity to Jawaharlal Nehru to broker a deal between the Ranas and the opposition leaders. The move had several consequences for the future of Nepal. Because the parties relied on Nehru and Padma Shamsher realized there is no escaping Nehru's good office, both the Ranas and opposition leaders also lost the opportunity to ask the British before their return to restore the Nepalese territories lost to Britain during Anglo Nepal War 1814-16.

As it stands now, the education system of the country is headed down a dangerously narrow path for the future. Overemphasis on occupational and professional studies, without addressing the gaps in liberal arts and many modern subjects will hurt Nepal's national aspirations for the nation building. This dismissal of broad-based learning comes from a fundamental misreading of the requirements of building a nation. A new liberal arts university in Nepal is therefore the need of our country's growth.

This has brought to my mind George Orwell's classical work 'Animal Farm'. What if the animals in our farms form Unions? Will the cows withhold the supply of milk from their udders? Will the production of butter and cheese come to a standstill?
