Trying it again

A man saw a big elephant tied on its feet with a weak rope by a weak pole. Curiously he asked to its master, "Why the elephant doesn't escape breaking the rope because it is very weak?",

The master replied,"When the elephant was a small child he tried to escape putting every effort it could but unsuccesful. So now he never tries to escape because it thinks that it is worthless to try."

Moral of the story: Many of us have tried to do many things but get unsuccessful results. We never again try to do it. We don't even know how much we have grown up. We just think in the same way we used to think in the past. This is wrong because with the time pass by we have gained many experiences and capacity that may be worthing to try it again.

This story is told by an actor in a Israeli movie which I watched in the Israeli Film Festival at Russian Art Culture some weeks ago.

Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal

Gone Wednesday among 564 CA members 560 voted for the new Nepal declaring official as the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. That means 99.29% of the voting was in the support of abolishing the 240 years of monarchy. This historic event is the world's latest great event forming the new republic nation witnessed by all over the world.

I here welcome this new era of democracy which is being called as "New Nepal". Though there is a lot more problems to solve I am quite optimistic about it. I personally suggest everyone to write about this historic event so that you couldn't forget anything about it coz this is the time that nobody will behold in his entire life again. We are the lucky one to behold this one and only life time experience about which the new generations will be going to ask so many questions about it. So just be prepared for it collection some data and the process how the event took place.

The first meeting of forming the new constitution took place at BICC building on 28th May 2008. The meeting was supposed to start at 11 am but due to the delay it only started at 9 pm at night.

Maoists and Nepali Congress is fighting again for the post of president and prime minister post. The new government will be directed the prime minister as the executive head and president will be kept as ceremonial. So whoever will become president will be the first president in the history of Nepal. So the quarrel is going there again like a small child fighting for a same toy. बच्चाहरु को झगडा ।

Anyway some divine power may give them some nice thinking inside their head I will pray for it otherwise the Nepali citizen will pay for their children fighting thing.

Long live Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal !!

संघीय लोकतांत्रिक गणतंत्र जिन्दाबाद !!
