Re: Ajaya Dixit's 'Greed, Inc' (Nepali Pan, #206). When the Enron scandal broke here in the US a few years ago, I was working in Nepal and observing an unfolding array of corporate crimes and greed that embarrassed me greatly, especially give the efforts underway in Nepal to stem corruption in government. A Nepali colleague, one of a growing cadre of Supreme Court advocates, observed wryly, "We have plenty of this corruption here in business and government here in Nepal, too. But the difference is that in the US those guys will go to jail." It was heartening to see the news of Enron, Adelphia, Tyco executives, and Martha Stewart being nailed for their greed and criminal actions. I only hope that the wheels of justice will soon do the same for those in the Bush Administration responsible for the shameful actions that have done so much damage to US standing around the world. And I also hope that these examples encourage you in the Nepali press and the NGO sector to keep battling corruption and mismanagement in Nepal. The truth will set us free.
