Now that it’s nakedly(not only stark) clear that there had been a positive role on the part of the Indian Govt. in tackling the Tarai crisis, this blogger expects some more hue & cry from the seasonal diehard nationalists against the ‘Indianization’ of Nepali nation.
Given the geo-politico-cultural position of Nepal that you can not change, you can never avoid the Indian influence; if not positive – then be ready for the negative.
If the two Mukherjis – Pranab & Shivsankar – had not been instrumental in persuading the Madhesi leaders come to a compromise with the Nepal Govt, then who were able to prevent the Advanis & Sindhals Team pouring ‘Hindu Ghee’ in the Tarai agitation?
OK, let’s assume that all the ‘seen’ political actors play their ideal indifference to what what goes in Nepal, then who could stop the criminals, terrorists, & radical ethnic outfits?
Some propose of playing the ‘China Card’ against India – what about the Chinese envoys consulting India first on Nepal matters?
And why shouldn’t India sympathize the Madhesis of Nepal given the latter’s cultural, political, & if needed, criminal link in Bihar & UP?
After all, Nepalis seem to be glorified when a Bhadgaule Topi wearer, despite him being an Indian national serving the Indian police, forcibly became the India Idol.
How many Nepalis think why Tenzing Sherpa adopted Indian citizenship & why why Udit Narayan’s nationality is always in question?
Let me callously ask how many true Nepalis, including the NRNs(read Non Returning Nepalis), are ready to fight the cultural(Bollywood included obviously), economic, & political imperialism of India which even the US & Pakistan find irrestible?
You’re free to call me yet another anti-national element, an Indian stooge, a traitor, or the likes.
But I need no more proofs to be sure that that definition if applied on me, spares no one.
No more Ostrich-ism, please!
