“Kahin nabhaeko jatra Handigaon maa”
The proverbial jatra (yatra) has been performed in Handigaon today. Meanwhile, not two kilometres away from Handigaon, there was beginning of another jatra in Baluwatar the same day.
The Handigaon jatra always ends up with a traditional feast where everybody is content. It is yet to see what the Baluwatar “fair” where the seven parties and the Maoists are taking part in the much-hyped “Summit talks” will bring into being.
If it will come in favour of the people and the nation, you are welcome. (People have high expectations.)
Hopefully, this time, in the peace process, none will “argue in a circle” and resort to the perversion of the truth to gain cheap popularity and garner sympathy or support from the quarters behind the scene that have their own ulterior motives and are involved in the sordid power play in the region and the world.
Otherwise, eff off all you political baloneys! No excuse to you if you fail to bear your responsibility again.
“A mind not to be changed by place or time.
The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”
Though Satan in the “Paradise Lost” by Milton says so, this verse gives lesson to all. Do you politicos have that capability to emphasize Nepali people’s longing for peace and desire for proper environment for advancement?
It’s up to you whether you make a heaven of a hell. But DO NOT MAKE a hell of heaven.
I pray for the success of the peace process. Let’s hope, it won’t be a white elephant.
