The very fact that Kanak Mani Dixit dared to write "Bahuns and the Nepali state" (#65) and you dared to publish it, and that there was such an overwhelming response both for and against proves that the article has struck a chord in the hearts of Nepalis, not only in Nepal but all over the world. We may pretend not to notice the obvious, but we cannot ignore it forever. Dixit deserves kudos for his guts and Nepal needs more writers like him to make us take a fresh look at what is wrong and right in our country. Brickbats and bouquets are an accepted part of a journalist's life. What is important, however, is whether journalists through their writings can make a profound impact on society, a particular community, or a nation itself. In this case, I believe, Dixit has done all.
