Narendra Modi: Unwanted Guest to Nepal

The agony, frankly speaking, is related with the news of the forced arrival of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Bhai Modi who, take it...

माओवादी–एमाले–काँङ्ग्रेस : विदेशीका लागि आफैँ सिद्धिने राजनीति

दीपक गजुरेल — जसरी पनि सत्तामा जाने चाहनाले हाम्रा राजनीतिक शक्तिहरूलाई अराजनीतिक मात्र होइन, लगभग आपराधिक बनाइदिने गरेको छ । यस क्रममा एक पछि अर्को गर्दै हाम्रा सबै महत्वपूर्ण राष्ट्रिय संस्थाहरू कमजोर पारिए, समाप्त पारिए, हामीलाई नै हतियार बनाएर । प्रहरी, प्रशासन, व्यवस्थापिका, सेना, न्यायपालिका, राजनीतिक दलहरू, नेताहरू, संस्कृति, धर्म, परम्परा, सबैलाई कमजोर पारियो वा मासियो नै, केही गर्नै नसक्ने गरी, फेरि उठ्नै नसक्ने गरी । एउटा शक्ति अर्का विरूद्ध प्रयोग भएर क्रमै सँग एक–अर्कालाई मास्ने विदेशी दाउ रोकिएको छैन नेपाली राजनीतिमा । हामी विदेशीको स्वार्थका लागि आपसमा लड्दैछौँ । अबको लडाइँ कसका विरुद्ध, कसलाई हतियार बनाएर, कसरी गराइन्छ भन्ने थाहा पाइञ्ज्याल हामी अझ कमजोर भैसक्ने निश्चित छ ।

India Playing Hindu King Card!

The fact is that this left Coalition has some Indian brains with Nepali souls. Nepal’s former King Gyanendra Shah has conceivably set the ball rolling. Indications to...

The Camouflaged Indian Agenda

By Maila Baje — The fate of the new beginning independent India sought with the democratic government of 1951, the elected government of B.P. Koirala in 1959 and the interim governments of 1990 and 2006 need not be rehashed here. The Indians need to get over the fact that Kathmandu managed to remain outside the Indian Union in 1947 when Kerala was in.

कूटनीति सञ्चालनमा हेलचेक्र्याइँ : परिणाम गम्भीर हुनसक्छ

दीपक गजुरेल — यो प्रतिष्ठित अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय मञ्चलाई पनि नेपालले ‘वाहियात’ ठहर गरेको सन्देश जाने निश्चित छ । किन यसो गरिँदैछ ? जवाफ प्रष्ट छ : भारतले तोकेको समय र मितिमा दिल्ली गएर 'राष्ट्रवादी' दावी गर्ने हाम्रा प्रधानमन्त्री ‘हामी भारतको निर्देशनमा काम गर्छौँ’ भन्ने सन्देश दिँदैछन् । नेपालमा 'लोकतन्त्र' आए देखि नेपाली भूमिमा चीन विरुद्ध गतिविधि व्यापक पारिएको छ ।

China and India in Nepal, Geostrategically

By Maila Baje — Even if China and India have decided to split the difference in Nepal in order to manage their wider rivalry, are the Europeans and the Americans just going to abandon the field? Sure, there is some talk going on in some Indian circles about flashing the ‘Taiwan card’ at China.

नेपाल : भारत र चीन समेत धरापमा

दीपक गजुरेल — विदेशी हस्तक्षेपको पक्ष र विपक्षमा नेपालीहरूलाई आमने – सामने खडा गराइएको छ । र कुन बेला, कुन रूपमा हिंसा शुरु गराइने हो भन्ने त्रासको अवस्था छ । स्थितिको गम्भीरता बुझ सबैले, र उठाऊ कदम राष्ट्रका लागि, निजी / निहित स्वार्थ हेर्ने समय छैन ।

China and India in Doklam: This can have catastrophic consequences for India

By Prakash Katoch _ Merely making brave statements that we have good relations with China and resolution is possible through talks can have catastrophic consequences for India. China is likely to embarrass India while its attention is focused on the general elections in May next year. This could also be used to undermine the growing India-US partnership.

KP Oli and His Geostrategy

By Maila Baje ¬_ To cut a long story short, where’s the evidence that Oli won’t be a changed man this time around as far as his geostrategic orientation goes? Dahal’s 180-degree flip was softened to an extent by the distance between his two premierships. The relative closeness of Oli’s tenures will perhaps make any such somersault more extraordinary, but it will certainly be no less explicable.

Politics of Pre-emption?

By Maila Baje - Khadka is the last surviving leader who stepped out of that aircraft on that cold December day with B.P. Koirala seeking national reconciliation in 1976. To many ears, B.P. and Hindu statehood probably don’t seem to go together well. Yet could they be a winning combination for Khadka – and one that his rivals desperately want to pre-empt?
