It is disappointing to see articles like Daniel Lak's 'Closure is a good thing' (#142). Such a simplistic perspective on the complex subject of development (a process which no country, even among those in the so called developed world, has fully achieved) is insulting to your readers, whether foreign or Nepali. It is always easy to criticise, and the cheap and cynical point scoring contained in this article benefits no one, the insults hurled from every line are not backed by the quotation of a single shred of hard evidence or reasoned argument. Debate is healthy, but these ravings are irresponsible and contribute nothing to Nepal's development, rather the article seems to be trying to generate more strife, which is not helpful. Believe it or not, most of us working in development do care.
