    the respected
    chief, Sir /Madame
    Will you please kindly give your valuable time to go through this
    e-mail request message so that all the people of Nepal will be very
    grateful l to you. You yourself have great wisdom to acknowledge that
    how peacefully and happily, we the people of Nepal are surviving here
    in Nepal . With great emotion, all the people of Nepal are praying and
    begging to the Almighty Go d that Nepalese people will not suffer as
    Cambodian people suffered in late seventies and Nepal will not face
    the fate of second Cambodia where thousands of Cambodian people were
    brutally massacred, tortured and displaced causing one of most
    miserable suffering of human beings in the human civilization. As
    Nepal was exposed to the outside world in 1950’s decade, we are always
    reputedly recognized and known as a extremely backward, mass illiterate,
    severely poverty stricken, and severely isolated, extremely interior, primitive bottled necked , surrounded by extremely back ward, isolated, funtush, cheater ,…., Bihar , utter Pradesh states of India, and most isolated, back ward Tibet autonomous region of china., fully land locked, extremely interior ,not having natural resources except hydro power which is also not developing at all, since more than 30 years being ruled by extremely selfish, good orator but poor laborer,………., funtush, 420,…., Brahman caste , small mountainous
    and Himalayan kingdom in the world. Though the People of Nepal also
    were believer in the Almighty God (spiritual way of living), peace
    loving, well disciplined, innocent, honest, laborious and friendly in
    the past but all these noble characters of the Nepalese People became
    the things of the past. Unfortunately we have completely lost these
    precious and valuable Nepalese characters .In true sense, Nepalese
    people are always suffering from mass illiteracy, severe poverty,
    severe ignorance, backwardness and isolation, primitiveness, hunger
    etc. Because of these entire sad circumstances and situations, Nepal
    always remain at the bottom, among the least developed countries (LDC)
    of the world. At the same time, we have not only completely forgotten
    and discarded our age old traditional noble believes, values and
    practices but at the same time we are not becoming able and also not
    having least curiosity and eagerness to learn the civilization of
    other countries of the whole world, particularly from the developed
    and advanced countries about the noble and brighter part of modern
    human civilization. As the majorities of Nepalese people are not
    curious at all and not trying our best to learn the latest knowledge
    and skills about modern sciences, technologies, management skills and
    rapidly advancing global village reality due to ever rapidly
    developing and expanding information technologies all over the world.
    Because of all these serious and horrible situations, short comings
    and problems, since many decades Nepal was being continuously misused
    by smugglers, anarchists, and those anti social fraction of
    population, who were not only doing harmful deeds to the society and
    nation but also doing illegal business in this country .Before
    democracy people of Nepal were dreaming for better lives and better
    society after getting democracy in the country. Unfortunately the
    result were and are becoming worse and worse in each passing day after we got
    the democracy. Opportunities of freedom of democratic society was
    being not utilized at all for up-lifting the Nepalese People from the
    vicious cycle of above mentioned social ills e.g. mass poverty,
    illiteracy, backwardness , isolation etc. Freedom of democracy was
    being misused and hijacked by anarchist, self centered, selfish,
    sort-sighted, not wise, not well learned , mean, uncooperative, not
    peace loving, violent, ill mannered, having ill thoughts, devil’s
    minded, not having good heart but rather having cruel hearted, idiots,
    so called political leaders, and their followers; smugglers, criminals
    and other evil minded portion of Nepalese population and Nepalese
    society .People are frightened and terrorized in each passing day and
    life of common people is becoming more terrorized, frightened
    ,unsecured, horrified, miserable, very difficult to survive, and harsh
    in this country. The ever increasing numbers of so called political
    parties of Nepal are not at all respectable and good political parties
    but these parties are continuously increasing in their numbers because
    these parties are proud to disintegrates from their mother parties as
    because party leaders and their followers do not believe in noble
    principles of any democratic party system of the world e.g. self
    discipline, to believe in unity is strength, united we stand and
    divided we fall, importance of co-operation and co-ordination;
    learning from each other and helping each other. These political
    leaders, their party members and their followers do not have clear r
    political thoughts, long term vision, long term objectives and goals
    of political parties. At the same time, these so called political
    persons do not have self motivation to sacrifice for the development
    of the country and well being of society. It is very surprising that in
    such a poor and very small country like Nepal, the numbers of
    political parties are continuously increasing, since we got the
    democracy some 14 years back. Nepal was and is a small Himalayan
    Kingdom for many centuries. People of Nepal always believed and
    respected in such a way that His Majesty’s The king is real incarnation
    of Hindu God Vishnu to rule the country with God’s power. People o! f
    Nepal were always spiritual and firm believer in the God, though h the
    way of believing, worshiping and religious practices was having some
    differences among the different ethnic communities. Majorities of
    Nepalese People were Hindu, remaining were Buddhists and small portion
    were Islamic and other tribal believers. There were always religious
    and communal harmony in this country. People of Nepal always highly
    respected the religious texts and its teaching so that they always
    believe and practiced kindness, care not only to fellow human beings
    but to the whole living beings of the Earth also. Nepalese people were
    having well manner and good behavior in their lives. According to our
    religious teaching and practices we were always respecting the
    King, at the same time we were also respecting and worshiping our old
    people and past generations. We always respected our mother and father
    in such a manner that they are second to Almighty God. At the same
    time we Hindu also highly respect and worship The Earth as Mother
    Earth, the Sun as the source light, brightness, and energy for this
    world. We the Hindu also respect all the naturally created things and
    all the living beings of the Earth e.g. we respect and worship the
    Himalayan Mountains as Gauri Shanker. We respect and worship the
    plants as Pippal and Bar trees. We also respect and worship flowers as
    Tulashi and Parijant. We believed and respected these trees and flower
    plants as these are also a type (form) of the God. We also respected
    and worship the very useful domestic animal Cow as mother Cow and we
    also respect and worship all the Rivers as Mother Rivers (Ganga Mata).
    We also highly respected the teachers and those learned and wise man
    and women of the society, who teach us knowledge and wisdom. Though
    the democracy is a noble system of North America and Europe , there is
    no such thing : *civic sense* in Nepal , so that there are many
    difficulties for the survival and flourishing of democracy system in
    Nepal . Though the Nepalese people always s feel Great about
    themselves because the Lord Gautam Buddha was burned in Nepal who
    contributed his whole life for spreading the noble thought and noble
    way of living for the human being through his non violence and
    peaceful massage to the human civilization, and at the same time we
    always dispute with India and claim that Gautam Buddha was definitely
    borne d in Nepal not in India but we are least bothered and concerned
    about the noble thought and wisdom of Gautam Buddha. Though the Gautam
    Buddha firmly believed and practiced the peaceful way of living and
    tried his best to maintain the peace and harmony in the society in his
    life time but it always became sad that majorities of Nepalese people
    are not believing and respecting the wisdom of Gautam Buddha but in
    the contrary majorities of us are believing and practicing in ever
    increasing manner that we are not respecting Gautam Buddha at all and
    believing and practicing just opposite way of Gautam Buddha’s wisdom
    and practice. Anti social, anti national interests and anarchist
    activities is increasing continuously in Nepal. The good and noble
    characters of human civilization e.g. politeness , civic sense,
    respect to the father and mother and senior citizens; respecting each
    others and learning from each others; co-ordination and mutual
    respects, ethics, norms , principle, social harmony, objectives;
    believing whole heartedly that there are no other ways rather than
    believing, respecting and practicing peaceful co-existence for the
    survival of society; visions ,discipline, others good and noble
    characters of the citizens, society and country as whole, is being
    eroded and spoiled as days are passing. Vulgar thoughts, vulgar
    practice and vulgar way of living and vulgarism are spreading in the
    society in such a rapid way that as forest fire rapidly burns to ash
    the large forest areas during hot, dry and windy season. Due to these
    ever flourishing anti social, anti national and criminal ways of
    lives, all the people of Nepal were are compelled to the influence of
    these not noble fraction of nation’s population. At the same time, the
    numbers of non believers and atheists are increasing rapidly in
    Nepalese population, among them young generation and students are
    most non believer (non spiritual) and atheist. Due to these sad reasons
    and situations, most of the people in Nepal are already in a so severe
    confusion and vision less state that we do not least bother about the
    noble dimension (aspect) of precious human life and human
    civilization. Very few people in Nepal believe that with continuous
    hard labor, firm belief in the God, noble ideas, dedication, enjoying
    fully what we are doing, great enthusiasm, clear vision and wisdom, we
    can excel in any type work and any field of studies, just like great
    scientists of the world, sir Albert Einstein and madam Curie who
    became successful to discover the theory of relativity and very useful
    and precious element Radium respectively. But unfortunately here in
    Nepal most of the people are believing and doing in opposite ways. By
    these reasons we have already became unable to differentiate between
    good and bad, right and wrong , service and harmful deeds to the
    society and nation; unity, harmony and disturbance, disintegration of
    society and nation. We are also unable to differentiate between good
    citizen’s behavior and thoughts, actions and behaviors of criminals;
    hopefulness and hopelessness; god and devil; heaven and hell etc.
    Majorities of us are becoming further poor in each passing day.
    Corruption, smuggling, mass gambling, mass alcohol abuse are our daily
    way of life of larger portion of Nepalese population. The trend is
    increasing and we are becoming helpless s to protect even our children
    from harmful habit formation like: gambling, violence and other anti
    social behaviors The monitoring, evaluation and control systems are
    very poor, so there are no effective award and punishment systems in
    Nepal . Majorities of Nepalese people, mostly urban young generations
    of the country are not disciplined and well mannered and do not
    respect these noble human characters. Most of the young people
    including students do not believe in politeness, which is one of the
    noble characters of civilized society and do not practice it at all.
    Our young generation are believing and practicing rough behavior,
    hooliganism, vandalism, unruly and destructive actions; violent
    behaviors and actions. Not only these, some portion of the population
    who may be ignorant and misguided about what they are doing, are
    believing and acting to that extreme that they are setting-fire on the
    school buses, students carrying vehicles on the roads and even inside
    the schools compound which are causing irreversible deep mental shock
    and psychological terror in the innocent children’s mind and soul.
    These portion population are also setting-fire on the government,
    public and private buses , trucks, and other transportation vehicles
    on the high ways and inner roads in regular manner . Nepal is becoming
    more and more poor country and life of Nepalese people is becoming
    more and more miserable, difficult, harsh, horrible and hard for mere
    survival due to forceful and threat full close down of the all the
    transportation systems; forceful and threat full close down of the
    schools, colleges universities, and threat full and forceful close down
    of all the national construction activities and all the economic
    activities of whole country in regular manner since many years. This
    section of populations are also setting-fire on schools ,learning
    institutions, public, government and private properties in routine
    manner, behaving and acting in such manner that what they are doing
    are most heroic deeds of human civilization of the world. Despite of
    our above mentioned horrible difficult situations and poverty,
    unfortunately since about one decade, we are facing unbearable civil
    war in the name of politico-philosophical experiment land, as Nepal is
    a most suitable training ground for the guerrilla war-fare, in the
    isolated and difficult geographical structure like sloppy and steep
    terrain of the remote hill s and high mountains of Nepal as Peru was
    used in Latin America . As Nepal, this Latin-American country Peru is
    also a poor; undeveloped, backward country with poor sociology-economical
    justice, having mass illiteracy and mass poverty problems. At the same
    time Peru , Bolivia and other boarding countries of Peru also were
    famous for illegal plantation of poppy crops , leading to flourishing
    business of smuggling of these highly addictive drugs eg. cocaine from
    these regions, to the rich countries of North America and Europe . If
    we once use these group of drugs we will be compelled and hooked on to
    these addictive drugs leading to vicious cycle of ever increasing
    crimes and other social problems, occurring not only in particular
    country but also to the countries of whole world, causing to worldwide
    drugs addiction problems. At the same time this south American country
    also having forest covered remote hills and mountains with steep and
    sloppy terrain, like in Nepal. Because o f these suitable
    Geo-topographical-environments of Peru , the guerrilla training
    movement started in early 1980’s was continuously becoming fierce
    guerrilla war-fare movement till 1990’s decade causing loss of
    thousands of human lives and suffering of the people in that guerrilla
    war-fare affected remote mountainous villages regions and this
    movement is still surviving recent years above mentioned
    guerrilla movement is still surviving in another Latin American country Columbia.
    In this part of the world, we the
    people of Nepal are suffering far more than the suffering of Peruvian
    people. Because of all these above mentioned unfortunate happenings,
    we are continuously destroying the basic infrastructures like roads,
    bridges, schools, irrigation facilities, communication facilities,
    locally constructed rural electrification facilities and all the other
    human society needed essential facilities, constructed and supported
    since many decades by all the friendly countries of Nepal all over the
    world. By this unfortunate and unwanted happening we, the people of
    Nepal are becoming poorer, more backward, isolated day by day. Not
    only this, we have already lost thousands of precious mostly young
    human lives without any noble mission in this period. We are also
    highly worried about the continuous disturbance of education of young
    children due to the frequent close down of schools, not peaceful,
    hopeless and spoiled environment in the country.
