I wish the government would listen to me. However, it’s not because I have not “asked” the government. Time and again I have laid down the vision for the optimum exploitation of Nepal’s famed water resources for the benefit of Nepal and people in Nepal. I agree that the electricity is basic need for the country and I have time and again reminded them that exporting it will not solve electricity crisis in Nepal. Then there is more important issue of irrigation during dry season which will ensure food security in Nepal such that no Nepali will have to die in famine; nor would Nepali youth need to go overseas in search of employment merely to be exploited financially, physically and even sexually.
Maybe the government will listen if people besides me also were to voice it in unison. Therefore, Damodar jee I urge you and your near and dear ones to add to my voice.
With best regards,

Please ask the government to invest money in building hydro power projects. Make a policy, the electricity as the basic need.
