Return of NaMo

First of all, let us thank our incompetent government for giving us a two-day public holiday during the SAARC Summit. Our schools and colleges will be shut down for four days so that our students can stay home and enjoy the break. Our hardworking civil servants can also take their break from seeking bribes from service seekers. 

I think hosting the Summit is a waste of our taxpayers money. Instead of renovating here and there, why not organize a bare-bones Summit? Yes, let us all have our SAARC leaders sit cross-legged on a sukul mat. We can serve them a Newari bhoj while they take turns delivering their hawa-tari speeches. NaMo will get a vegetarian menu!

And instead of wasting billions of Rupees on temporary makeover of the city, our government should have organized the whole natak in Lumbini. A mountain flight for our SAARC leaders and a quick lunch at Lukla could save us a whole lot of money instead of wasting millions on helicopter rides for a one-day retreat in Dhulikhel. 

While our PM and his chamchas will enjoy the holiday, rest of us will have to walk to work and burn some calories or stay at home and add more.

Instead of impressing the heads of states of the SAARC nations by making our lives miserable, our buffoons should impress us by at least coming out with the first draft of the constitution before the SAARC Summit. But that's not possible because our freeloaders can't seem to agree on anything.  

Our Emperor must have really missed Rolpa and the bunkers there. If he really wants to win our hearts and minds then he should move out from his Lazimpat residence and live in a one room apartment. And instead of riding around in a luxury vehicle, why not use public transport like the rest of us.

Dr. Saheb is busy trying to keep up with his Twitter celebrity status. He wants us to let him govern us for five years and if he can't turn us into Singaporeans then we are free to shoot him. But the common citizens can only afford to buy gums and not guns. 

And we do believe in peace unlike our clowns who just want a piece of the loot. Baidya Ba is busy preparing plans to invade India next year. And Netra Dai wants to launch another arm struggle by next week.

NaMo visited us in August and gave his Oscar-winning speech. This time around, he wants to visit Janakpur and  Lumbini and address the public as well. NaMo also wants to distribute 3,000 bicycles to school children in Janakpur. 

Our incompetent government cannot afford to provide bicycles to our kids because they don't have any funds. But all our clowns get to ride around in luxury vehicles and get free fuel, maintenance kharcha and armed guards to protect them from malnourished citizens.

NaMo has visited Japan and the United States in September and he will get done hanging out in Myanmar, Australia and Fiji before the SAARC Summit. Wherever NaMo goes, he wants billion dollar investment for his country. What about our leaders? They only go to Japan and the United States for free medical treatment at the expense of our taxpayers. 

Our netas should learn a thing or two from NaMo. First, hire an advertising agency to write your speech. I am sure our Nepali copywriters can come up with creative one-liners and heart-warming slogans. 

Second,  try to wear the same kind of outfit. Our Maoists did try their best with 'grey' coats. If our comrades had at least one person with an advertising background then they would have claimed that Mark Zuckerberg was a Maoist. After all, the Facebook founder wears a grey t-shirt everyday.  

Third, instead of begging for free ambulances, bicycles and other grants to build bridges where there are no rivers, why not encourage bideshis and NRNs and our migrant workers to invest in Nepal? 

Yes, give them tax breaks and incentives. It would also be nice if our government also thought about our small business owners in the country instead of only making life easier for our fake-VAT bill byaparis.

The Chinese have pledged to invest US$20 billion in India within the next five years. The Japanese have pledged US$35 billion. I think we should just ask the Chinese and the Indians to invest in all joint-venture projects in the country. If that happens, then our politicians can't accuse each other of being foreign stooges. 

And we also can't leave out our clowns who lobby for the West. Yes, let's invite the Americans and the Europeans as well. I think our dreams of having a 40,000 MW electricity in 20 years is possible if we can ask all the major foreign donors to come together to help us end loadshedding and make some money from our rivers. 

If  our clowns really thought like NaMo then they would be asking bideshis to invest in their districts. Switzerland can help Solukhumbu. Japan can help Janakpur. We just need to match the districts with the foreign countries. 

What about Kathmandu?  I think Kazakhstan will do. If we build a statue of the Kazakh President then who knows, we might get some free oil and maybe a box of uranium as well. If Former British PM, Tony Blair can make millions giving PR advice to the Kazakh dictator then who are we to talk about human rights and democracy?
