This isn’t an entry. This is simply ranting. So think twice before you start to read. I say don’t read at all. Who wants to hear anyone else screaming in the first place? And chances are you aren’t going to understand it too!
Unusual that the “Need to blog” exists no more. Usual that I write an entry when it falls at the bottom of my priority list. Life’s the same, doesn’t change. History repeats itself. It’s like trouble. It never comes alone. It’s like mass tourism. No work means absolutely NO WORK. Work means, no time to breathe! Darlin……in Extremes. (that’s a line from a song again! Well, the only difference is it was custom recorded for me!!)
What’s new? Nothing. What’s going right in the country? Nothing. What are we doing again? Complaining. The same old talk and the same old sarcastic tone. Sarcasm is tolerable to an extent. Beyond that it becomes an irritation. Motivation. Yeah, the class is motivating but I still need a hint of Optimism in THE TALK. The only thing I like is “Why the hell does no one think of having a cycle track in Kathmandu? We have an evergreen petroleum crisis, don’t we? So much to pay back to the Indian Oil Corporation tis-tat. The foreigners residing here ride on it, why don’t we?” It’s a frog leap. Hop from this to that topic. It moves on to the new Minister of Foreign Affairs. “What foreign policy does she have? What purpose is flying for any programme going to serve?” Agree this time too. And what the hell is the need for Interim Plan for?? We already have people working on the previous plans. As if an “Interim” addition to everything is a SOLUTION to all our problems. As though saying “GANATANTRA” is going to bring an upheaval! I mean what we are thinking by organizing a “GANATANTRIC SPORTS PROGRAMME!” It’s just an unnecessary expense, having to print Ganatantra in everything!! Just when the world is realizing how much time excluding a single letter from word SAVES!
One week there’s a guy who has studied in Yale, taught in Harvard? I just forgot. Nepalese here Nepalese there. So many experts, real experts I mean. Then why this dismal picture of the country for so long? I ask. “It’s the frog habit. Pull the leg of the one who tries to escape from the basket.” That’s the answer I receive. Thanks. Nothing new. Then we have a professor who has really made it big. BIG WHICH MEANS REAL BIG TIME BIG. Why the disgust for no obvious reason? Why the aggression? Just because he wears a Nepali cap, just because he calls everyone “ Chora, choori?”. I mean what is our problem? Challenging the theory of Robert Chambers, discarding Michael Cernea’s theory. THAT IS SOMETHING. If that makes any sense to anyone?!?
So soooooo sick of this what’s right with this country debate. And the same old logic again and again. Barking dogs don’t bite. The ones who guff don’t work. One time or the other everyone becomes the barking dog. So, what’s holding us back? Why not ask why we don’t ride on bicycles ourselves? Figure it out and if beyond our control go to the agencies who were supposed to have the damn Koteshwor-Maitighar route some 4 years ago!! Where has the allocated money gone? Why not? Why not say “You guys do it” rather than discussing all that is flawed…..damn yeah I am the barking one too….
And yeah I forgive, but never forget. So what do you think you are doing by saying “ Shut up!”. And asking the same question again ?!? “Do we need to be in the system to change it?” What was the RDB hype for so many months for?? Bakwash. Wasn’t that crystal clear? We NEED TO BE! Agree the system isn’t always bureaucracy. The system is whatever you have problem with. The traffic is bad, contribute then, take the local bus, walk in the overhead bridge. Everyone’s a stakeholder. We make the system. And the hell with your GOODAMN SHUT. I shut up, and then break the silence real loud well I WRITE. The class is surely making my hackles rise!!! And I want CHANGE! And I want it for GOOD.
feels a lot better now…………! Yeah…just rant and be myself somewhere, The blog…its always there…….
