Madhesis


I agree with CK Lal's assertion in "The tarai cauldron" (#134) about the lack of representation of people from the tarai. But I don't believe in how he is presenting the problem. Madhesi society itself needs major reform, and can't be satisfied with putting some token madhesis in positions of power. At Tribhuvan University in Kirtipur, one hardly used to see any madhesi girls studying there. But I don't think you can blame the Bahun-Chhetri-Newar domination for that. It is the madhesis themselves who do not want to send their girls to get higher education. CK Lal needs to go into these issues, instead of complaining about how the Maoists are not including the madhesis. That way he could help other madhesis become writers like him, even though the editors in Nepali media are mostly Bahuns.
