RE: PAC and west seti

Dear Sumitrajee

Good to hear from you. Also glad to know that you are perusing my writings with interest.

I don’t come from a family that send their children to pricey schools. My parents have invested quite a lot in getting me educated. So has Nepal, our motherland. Therefore, I owe it to both my motherland and my parents to use my knowledge, experience and exposure for the benefit of this country. In studying projects like west seti in depth, I am trying to ensure that Nepal is not short changed. And when I analyze issues related to federalism, I am trying to ensure that we don’t fail to exploit our natural resource to the optimum level possible nor does Nepal disintegrate.

Majority of people in Nepal are not well educated and it’s not their fault that they don't understand most of these things; including those in leadership as well as in CA. I, therefore, think that it is incumbent upon educated people like us to endeavor to understand things like these, educate others and raise voice in unison. I am doing it and hope that others too will soon join me.

One thing I have not learnt is to act like an ostrich, bury the head in sand and hope that everything will be hunky dory.

With best regards,


Ratna Sansar Shrestha,

Dear Ratna Sansar ji,

Read your article with much interest. Appreciate your constant efforts in informing the public and the CA members all concerned on the vital concern of the country - water resource. How to bring the concerned to be accountable in their decisions in favor of the country? How else should the informed public’s energy be forged to make the authorities be accountable in addition to the publications in the national papers?

Best wishes
