Dear Prof. Lohani
A person grows up after being breast fed by her/his mother. But children can never repay the mother. The least a child could do is feel grateful towards the mother.
Similarly, a person also feeds on the motherland (eat food that grows on the land, drinks water flowing in her rivers, and so forth) and in return at least needs to feel obligated to her and be faithful to her, although nobody will be able to repay the motherland. Otherwise, it will amount to ungratefulness on the part people who don’t have nationalistic feelings.
Unfortunately, we have many people who don’t feel grateful towards the motherland. Moreover, strangely, there are many people in Nepal who are faithful towards other countries, instead of Nepal. no wonder, Nepal is languishing in such a state.
Thank you very much for your kind words.
With best regards,

Dear Ratna Sansarji,
Thanks for forwarding your interview published in weekly Telegraph which approaches prominent people with 5 Questions .A few years ago,immediately after the April movement of 2006,I had also answered 5 questions of this weekly.One common denominator in all your 5 answers is your strong nationalistic feeling .You have reiterated your stand that power can be exported to India only after we make sure that our own requirement has been met.You have rightly said that our own people should not be deprived of 'water and electricity' in our frantic bid to export power and electricity to the southern neighbor.
Congrats and wishing you all the best,
