There is no doubt that the first visit of NaMo as the Indian PM, when he disembarked from his vehicle to mix with people on the road had generated great enthusiasm and immense bonhomie for him amongst the Nepalis. The ‘unofficial’ blockade of Nepal that took place at end of 2015 and subjected the Nepali people to great hardships made his popularity amongst Nepalis to plummet downwards and reach a nadir.

Fortunately, the 21st century has been quite nifty at replacing the real on the ground spying with cyberspace equivalents and governments/companies/researchers/can spy by handing the job over to computer whizzes who don’t even have to consider how much hurt or damage they inflict because it’s all by proxy, Orwell’s 1984 comes to mind with Big Brother ever watching from a giant television screen.

The other theory I have; and try this one for size, is that if a nation has been on the world’s dislike list for a couple of thousand years then its people tend to hone their skills, work harder, groom their intelligence, produce a fair number of geniuses (e.g. Einstein, Marx and Bettelheim) and after that they survive.

The PM has commented publicly to the persons responsible for this report not to take the Nepalis for granted pointing out the fact that what has been done in the conduction of the elections is as per the provisions laid down in the recently passed Constitution of Nepal.
