leaving their place of stay and from their place of work for few weeks or months have a lot of implications for world’s travel and trade industry. Tourism flourishes only in the presence of people when they are motivated to experience something new and interested to try a new taste. Same taste and same experience for tourists is not appreciable, therefore to offer a new and variety of travel experience to all kind of visitors or tourists, tourism product diversification is a must. This helps to decentralize the tourist volume and tourist benefits from a conventional destination while maintaining the quality experience of travel and tourism.
Nepalese politics continues to be on the brink, and there is no sign of any consensus whatsoever among the political parties. Meanwhile our capital has taken on the appearance of a war zone since the opposition parties decided to protest against the present caretaker Maoist-led government. Most importantly, there are rumours, allegations and claims by the Maoist leaders and members of the government that the President has been trying to stage a coup by which Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai would be dismissed and a replacement appointed. The Unified Maoist party leaders have been claiming that the President was planning it with the support of the Nepalese Army, the international community and the security agencies.

While the 2012 U.S. presidential election was the costliest and arguably the nastiest in U.S. history, both Democrats and Republicans quickly bridged the ideological divide ranging from the national budget deficit, foreign policy, energy policy to jobs, proclaiming in the end that America’s democracy was overall alive and well. Patriotism resounded in President Obama’s voice as he gave a media blitzed speech from his native Chicago, Illinois.
After a decade of insurgency and almost six years of on-going political drama, Nepal is still struggling to come to terms with the ground realities of economic development. Thousands of people are leaving the country every month looking for jobs and better life as Nepal is struggling to resolve the political deadlock.
The United Nations was founded in June 1945 in the aftermath of World War II primarily to avert another catastrophe of its kind. The horrifying memories of that war are unforgettable. Justifiably, the Charter of the UN has mentioned the safety of humanity from the scourge of war as one of the purposes of the world organization.
The present government has plans to set-up three premier think-tanks in the country. Although it has been some months since such an announcement was made, concrete implementation is yet to be seen. Implementation of this plan will surely fulfill long felt needs. Research institutions looking at foreign policy, strategic and economic issues providing objective research on policy relevant matters is a prime need of the hour.
Our country plunged into even deeper political stalemate when the Constituent Assembly (CA) failed to address the controversial issue of federalism and missed the fourth deadline since its establishment in 2008. A few weeks ago, the major political parties, after failing to agree on the reinstatement of the dissolved assembly, opted to go for a fresh CA election. It puts us back to where we were in 2008, and our political progress backwards continues. If the parties are serious about their new election decision, it is bound to have a profound effect on the country's political future.

The bullet from Malala Yousafzai’s head has been taken out. She is now recovering at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham, UK. She was shot while returning home from her school. Yousafzai’s only fault was that she wanted to study. She was shot by the Taliban for her wish. Though she is out of danger now, the wound that this incident has given to the world is painful. Yousafzai hails from the beautiful province of Swat in Pakistan. She has rose to prominence for her efforts in campaigning education for the girls. Due to her proactive role as a teenage campaigner, the Taliban considered her as a threat. After warning Malala against her social instigation, it didn’t take long for the Taliban to shoot at the 14-year old girl. A student of Khusal public School, Yousafzai is keen on becoming a politician after her study.
