Shiva Gaunle's story, 'What about us', (#244) is misleading. He has tried to explain that Nepal's political parties are stuck at the same point they were four years ago and goes on to point out that there hasn't been much concerted opposition within the country to the king's move. How can there be if the state of emergency doesn't allow anyone to express any opposition? Besides, there have been rallies where activists have bravely defied the emergency. It may be true that many Nepalis dislike their political leaders but then most will back them if given a chance so that the country can return to a more open and democratic system. I can understand there is press censorship in Nepal and its hard to print the things the way you wish to. But that doesn't mean that you fuel your stories with wrong inputs and praise those in power.
