GOOOOAAAAL?



BILASH RAI

Moving the goalposts, foul play, refereeing blunders and own goals. Will our politicians ever achieve the goals the Nepali people set for them? As the wrangling drags on, it's all too easy to turn away in disgust and towards the rather more goal-oriented strategic play that will dominate the TV screens of the world for the month to come.

In fact, football fans across the country are sure to expend much of their mental energies debating the rights and wrongs of the men in shorts.

This is not to grant our politicians yet another opportunity to fritter away our collective future. The excitement of South Africa's achievement will not mask the failure of our own.

this is called "gol-maal"...time and again, we have seen their "goals" as well as the "maal" (their fully loaded and corruptly acquired wealth)... these "khaobaadi" have but one "goooooooooooooooooal" in mind... how to become rich over night. They will not become accountable... the happenings and history of past 20 years is a case in point... there is no excuse for this... and one can't keep forgiving everyother month or year... only public and civil society can make them accountable by removing them from their "goal-post" and bringing in fresh "khilaadi" as new goal-keepers and new "forward-thinkers" and "doers" for our nation... for now I am going back to watching soccer...
