More questions



.Don't we need appropriate means to achieve something? Doesn't cruelty lead to more cruelty? Can a demonic mindset and mass destruction lead to the formation of a sound human civilisation?

But the Maoists don't have ears to listen to the questions. They cannot listen to anything-the requests, suggestions and advice of the political parties, citizens and the general public. It is as if they can only smell the smoke of ammunition. As if they experience beauty in death and music in screams. As if destruction automatically means creation to them. As if in their view, chaos itself leads to organisation. As if the screaming is, in their view, melodious.

There are some questions for the Maoists-haven't we now reached the limit to the gruesome acts than can be carried out in the name of Mao? Even if this peak of destruction means victory for the Maoists, what sort of reward will they be getting.they will have to pitch their tents on the ashes of this destruction and rule from there. Is this the goal of the current mass destruction and rampage?

One part of our society is what we know as government, which largely comprises people keen to take whatever they can while they are there. It has turned out to be a capable partner in the Maoist campaign of destruction and violence. The citizens seem to be trapped in the no man's land between the insurgency and counter insurgency. On one side there are the Maoists, and on the other the government. The country has been abducted to a place of violence and counter-violence. And the citizens have become stateless. .The prime minister, the leader of the ruling party and the main opposition are driving their Pajeros and Prados, glance averted as US troops with guns have begun to roam across the country. They went to Accham, Rolpa and Gorkha.
