Nepal For Hyper Loop Connectivity with India and China

Kathmandu, Nepal


In the heels of securing train and water access to India and China and after successfully, disbanding Transportation Cartel in Nepal, Nepal government is planning to implement “HyperLoop” transportation system in near future. According to a highly placed source, Government of Nepal has realized the importance of connecting Asia’s two big and economically growing countries - China and India for prosperity of Nepal. However, current mode of transportation isn’t likely to meet the needs of the future.
China and India with world’s largest populations and rising middle class offer Nepal’s best chance to enter an era of unprecedented growth through trade and tourism. “Look, Out of over 2 Billion population in these countries, there are at least 600 million people who could potentially visit Nepal for tourism, however, due to poor infrastructure, distance and cost, it’s very difficult for most people to come to Nepal,” said a tourism official.

विद्यार्थी भर्ना मात्र गर्ने कि टिकाउने पनि !

नेपालमा नयाँ बर्षसँगै नयाँ शैक्षिक वर्ष पनि सुरु हुन्छ। यसैको मौकामा २०७५  साल सुरुवातमै प्रधानमन्त्री केपी शर्मा ओलीले  एक जना विद्यार्थी स्कुल भर्ना गर्नुभयो। अभियान सुरु गर्दै सबैलाई नेताहरुलाई ‍कम्तिमा एक जना विद्यार्थी भर्ना गर्न अाव्हान पनि गर्नुभयो। अहिले शिक्षामन्त्री, प्रदेश मुख्यमन्त्रीहरु, वरिष्ठ नेताहरु, सांसदहरु लगायतले विद्यार्थी भर्ना गराइरहेको समाचारले प्रमुखता पाइरहेको छ।संविधानले सबै बालबालिकासम्म शिक्षाको पहुँच ‍निर्दिष्टता गरेको ‍परिवेशमा देशको नेतृत्वले गरेको यो प्रयास सरहानीय ‍हो। तर नीतिनिर्माण तहमा रहेको नेतृत्वलाई यति कदममै रमाउने छुट भने छैन। शिक्षा मन्त्रलाय तथा अन्य अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय संस्थाको तथ्यांक अाधार मान्दा, भर्नाभन्दा पनि स्कुलसम्म पुगेका केटाकेटी त्यहाँ कसरी टिकाउने र गुणस्तरीय शिक्षा कसरी दिने भन्ने अबको धेय हुनु पर्ने देखिन्छ। अब पहुँचमा भन्दा गुणस्तरमा समय र परिश्रम धेरै गर्नु पर्ने देखिन्छ। शिक्षा मन्त्रालय, युनिसेफ, तथा विश्व बैंकका तथ्यांक अाधार मान्ने हो भने, नेपालमा ५-९ वर्ष उमेर समूहका झण्डै ९७ प्रतिशत केटाकेटी स्कुल भर्ना हुन्छन्। यो दर दक्…

मधेस अान्दोलन मुद्दा: - के जनसंख्या मात्रको अाधारमा प्रतिनिधित्व ठिक हो?

मधेश अान्दोलनमा सहभागि अान्दोलनरत दल, समर्थक विचार निर्माताहरु, सहभागिहरुले नयंा संविधान  मधेस विरोधि भयो भनेर उ्ठाइएका विभिन्न मुद्दा मध्ये नयां संविधानमा जनसंख्याको अाधारमा प्रतिनिधित्व भएन भन्ने पनि छ। अधिवक्ता दिपेन्द्र झा ले लेख्नु भएका विभिन्न लेख र फेसबुक पोस्टहरु मा, "धारा ८४(१)(क)प्रतिनिधिसभाको प्रत्यक्ष तर्फ रहेका १६५ सिटको लागि जनसंख्याको आधारमा निर्वाचन क्षेत्र कायम गर्ने प्रावधान राख्नु पर्छ । हाल भूगोल र जनसंख्याको आधारमा राखिएको छ । बरु कर्णाली, मनाङ जस्ता भौगोलिक विकटता भएको क्षेत्रको लागि विशेष प्रावधान राख्न सकिन्छ ।‍ " यो मुद्दा प्रमुख रुपमा उ्ठाईको देखिन्छ । 

सामान्यतया प्रजातान्त्रिक व्यवस्थाहरुमा, जनसंख्या नै प्रतिनिधित्वको मुल अाधार हो । एक व्यक्ति, एक भोट र त्यसैको अाधारमा हुने प्रतिनिधित्वको व्यवस्था । यसअर्थमा मधेसबाट उ्ठाईको मुद्दा ठिक लागे पनि, नेपाल जस्तो भौगोलिक  जटिलता र दुर्गमता भएको जिल्ला भएको देशको लागि एकांकि ढंगले सोच्नु कत्तिको सार्थक छ?  नेपालको परिवेशमा जनसंख्यलाई मात्र हैन, भुगोललाई पनि प्रतिनिधित्वको हुनु पर्ने अाधार देखि्न्छ ।

How America will collapse (by 2025)

Salon.com has an interesting article by Prof. Alfred McCoy at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Titled, How America will collapse (by 2025), Prof. McCoy asserts the the decline of American empire has begun. While I largely agree that America is on inevitable decline, it is rather difficult to ascertain that decline will be as swift as it is predicted. Among many variables, one problem with projected rise of China as a major super power, discounts the fact that Chinese leadership will face equally challenging times. As the middle class population increases with significant economic power, it is likely that there will be pressure for more open and democratic norms in China. A failure to manage the political aspiration could lead China off the track from becoming the single most powerful country in the world. In addition, any weakening of Chinese State is definitely likely to invite simmering discontent among Tibetans and Ughuirs to the fore and create a huge challenge for Chinese author…
