I had stopped writing, my friends. But I couldn't keep quiet anymore. The daggers which have been piercing me have now come so close to my heart, that if I were to succumb before expressing myself, I would be betraying those who have faith in me and my feelings would have been denied a natural outlet for all times.
Just a rumour that an Indian film artist had said something derogatory to Nepalese could burn this country devastatingly like a forest fire, when Vice President dresses like a foreigner and takes oath in a foreign language, what happened to the fire in Nepalese hearts or have we been bought all together.
Perseus, teacher of all arts hath brought the fire,
Which hath proved to mortals the means to mighty ends
I remember Gandhi,
When individuals go forth to seek their death,
Then do nations live
Quit India to chaos or quit India to GOD,
But QUIT INDIA
My dear foreign interlopers and your stooges: QUIT
We have had enough. Your fundings to demolish all the national institutions have been successful. It is the responsibility of the Nepalese to resurrect those. You have already done enough harm. Now cease your activities. Feed your stooges if you have to, even beyond their usefulness. But draw the line, please
Render unto Caesar things that are Caesars'
Render unto Monarchy the formation and identity of this country.
When Caesar falls you fall, I fall, and everybody falls,
If Parmanand Jha with such a big skeleton in his closet for having made a deal with a drug dealer and then threatened with impeachment by an elected House and finally demoted is the symbol of New Nepal, then GOD, help us. Let us see whether there is enough fire left in the Nepalese. Do we help build a Berlin Wall laterally or bring it down before the foreigners inspired cement dries up?

Not that I love democracy less, but I love Nepal more: that tract of land for which our ancestors died, lived and sweated. That identity is now in danger. Doesn't the new Vice President know that this country has a national language and national dress code? Why are we undressing as a nation before all foreigners? Our culture, our religion, our independence which had unique attributes are being auctioned off to the Nordics, to the Southerners, to the original colonialists and we like dogs enjoying the taste of our own blood mixed up with the food by bones which have perforated the gums are happy, well fed and going to sleep only to wake up in a reality where the nation and its integrity would have been seriously compromised.
I have General Ochterloni's letter to Amar Singh engraved in my heart. Are we the same people who have descended from the same fierce fighters, who had carved out this rectangular piece of land to be eternally independent and never colonized? Nepal had been defeated four times: (i) by Tsrong-sen-Gampo in 640 A.D., (ii) by Shamsuddin Ilyas from Bengal in 1349, (iii) by Chien Lung the Manchu Emperor in 1792, and (iv) by the British in 1814-16. Each time we have risen from the ashes like a SPHINX. Do we have it in us to rise again? Otherwise, let us go beyond Motihari and drown ourselves in Paleja Ghat. May be we would achieve salvation which have been denied us in this country because of the treachery of our leaders, because of the weakness of our brave soldiers and because of the low market value of our Nepalese labourers and the unemployed addicted and fun loving youths who have no ideals but only objectives to sell themselves.
