Wisdom, patience



?This is a difficult moment for the country, a very critical juncture. We are moving towards war, terrorism and suppression. Our education, industrial and other constructive sectors will all come to a standstill. Fear, unrest and uncertainty have spread to all parts of the country and it is the duty of the citizens to stop this. The Maoists and the government both seem to be caught up in their own pride and show of strength. No one knows for sure when uncomfortable decisions will be taken. In such a situation it is not wise to maintain the status quo. A time like this requires peace, stability and unity, either through the deployment of the army, or an ordinance or an emergency?whatever means laid down by the constitution. This requires a great deal of patience, docility and wisdom. The Maoists and the government have already had three rounds of dialogue. Why not sit for another round? The intellectuals, politically active and aware members of society must also focus on this. In his recent statements, Prachanda has claimed his party is still interested in solving this problem through dialogue. If this is the case, why start this unnecessary massacre, spill more blood? Similarly, if the government knows this problem can be solved with the help of certain factors, why resort to violence? If handled with tact, understanding and wisdom, any difficult problem can be solved. If we do not have wisdome, tact, patience and docility, we may resort to force to solve the problem, and none of us will be able to foresee the outcome. A solution is possible and for this the government and the Maoists must keep their use of arms under control. (This edit reads as if it was written before the emergency was declared)
