I am very enthused by your words about me.

Bulls are definitely fools. They work very hard to have rice grow in the fields and harvest it, but they give rice to human beings and survive on just husk. This could also be taken as a form of sacrifice on their part.

If one is to draw a parallel between what bulls do to what hydrocrats in Nepal are doing, one will be able to find a lot of similarities. Build hydropower projects in Nepal but provide all the benefits to India. I am just trying to ensure that we stop doing so; learn lessons from Koshi through Mahakali treaties.

But I need your (and all like minded people’s) help in all this in order to ensure that we don’t continue to behave as bulls any longer. I will work on writing thought provoking articles/papers and you all please spread the words. It will be better if you all join me in writing such articles and force the hydrocrats to sit up, take notice and mend their ways.

With best regards,

Dear Ratna Ju


You are correct, my appreciation is beyond just remuneration. I like to see more for you, for that matter for myself.

But then you do march by different drum beats. They say tigers, unlike bullocks pulling carts, do not follow same treads.

The real reward is spots of pride and confidence deep inside, and incrementally forming correct public opinion outside.
