Nepal’s Election Many Not Lift Country’s Permanent Sense of Crisis

 

This article describes the crisis that is still going on in Nepal with their elections. The article starts with the fact that, “For the second time in five years, Nepal goes to the polls to vote for a new government that many hope will end the political stalemate… in gridlock since 2008.” This article relates to the book Little Princes because Conor mentions that even in 2006, when he was writing the book, the Royal Government had political tensions with the polls. This article shows the potential for more conflict within Nepal because of the fact that the Maoist think that this new constitution contains fraud. If the Maoists were to prove this right, then conflict would erupt between the two sides again.

Officers of Nepal Army

 

This article has to do with former Maoist Rebels now becoming officers in the Nepalese army. This article can be related to the book, Little Princes, because of the fact that these 70 former Maoists were once part of the big anti-government movement that tried to stop the Nepalese Government in the civil war. Now, these 70 people were accepted into the army in order to protect the government. This shows collaboration because these former Maoists are now working with the government to put an end to the long dispute between the two sides, the government and the Maoists.

ICAPP on human exploitation begins

 

This article describes the importance of stopping child exploitation. This article is similar to the book, ­Little Princes, where Conor’s purpose in Nepal is to stop exploitation. Not only in Nepal is exploitation a big issue though. Other Asian countries are also having the problem of exploitation. Chairman of the Council of Ministers, Khiil Raj Regmi said, “trafficking in human beings in the present world was a big challenge to the human civilization and the civilized society itself.” Organizations like the ICAPP are one of the many other organizations trying to stop exploitation. In addition, the ICAPP is trying to “raise public awareness” on the issue, similar to Conor and how he raised awareness in America about the same issue. These Asian countries and the exploitation organizations are cooperating in order to stop exploiters from crossing the borders with the children. These organizations are “establishing a fast-track punishment system and issuing the Kathmandu-statement on human exploitation.”
