Corruption in Nepal

It is the most common problem to persist in all the developing countries. It very hard to abolish. Every government official is corrupt. Without being corrupt it is hard for them to maintain their daily standards. They take bribe to do even a small work. If not given the bribe the work is not done. People are in the middle of wrong and justified work. Without bribery their work is not done and they can't live without it. The government officials are like gods. The problem has even spread to private organization. Shortage of jobs have created havoc among people. They have no choice than to work abroad. The police which has the responsibility for civil protection is guided by capitalistic society. They are the one who protects gangster and they are the one who terrorizes people. The higher official think they can do anything, beat up anyone and take anybody to jail. The police talk to common people like they are petty thief. The development process is in due. It is always backward. Never complete. There are always funds coming on, hike in tax rates and donation sought. But the road they built last year needs mending again. The bridge they built is in the verge of collapse. The rich exploits the poor. And poor people are always poor hoping to find a better job. They have no ability to take risk for their own business. Many people still live in jungles and still they eat wild roots. Why do we need to work in a office? If we can sustain ourselves working in a field, growing our own crops. And selling diary and meat. We can earn money like that too. But people are brainwashed to go abroad. They can't even think if they work hard here they can earn some money. But our government is so corrupt they only focus on sending people out and not even care about them when they reach there or when they come back. They want us to settle elsewhere. There are no provision to introduce new technique and new equipment for agriculture. To get a job you need to have a rich parent or somebody you know.
Starting from Government Officials most people here are corrupt. They have this unseen face which they only show when the other person is in trouble. They are present everywhere. It is strongly rooted in cities and some in rural areas.They do this because it helps them to earn more in short time regardless of what the outcome will be. Everyone knows this is prevalent here but nobody talks about it. If they try to talk about it they disappear shortly. I wonder when is this going to change. Every saints here are same.

Ncell Pays Tax and silences the environment

Ncell, one of our beloved company, was made to pay 10 billion in tax. Teliasonera the company which sold it's share to Axiata made the payment on 8th May. Before paying the tax Ncell has been severely condemned for not doing so. Social media was flooded with statements like " No tax, No Ncell". Many organization are still here which don't even bother to pay tax. Ncell had made our life easier since it's start. It made SIM more accessible, introduced us to 3G, video calls and what not. Every new mobile technology we are experiencing in Nepal is due to Ncell to huge extent. Although Ncell is hugely criticized time and again for being expensive. But if you spend some money into something you would expect a return. And I guess that's what they were doing with regards to quality you are getting.
Many of us don't even bother to understand what we saying sometime and just do what other are doing. That's what happened with Ncell. People were pissed off when their money was used up in internet and other service which they think was taken without their consent. But it never happened to me or anybody I know. No services has ever been activated by itself. The internet thing is hard to understand. Everybody is using a smartphone which mostly runs on internet. Internet on the background, on the foreground and internet even when  you are not using it. So that my friend might use up your money while using internet. And there's no point blaming a network carrier for that. It is because you don't know what you are doing.
So that being said people still think Ncell is a crook and with new tax thing it made them sure that it was. And what do you need? Just start posting about it on social media. Curse em'. And fill your screen with junk. There were some political parties affiliated student union protesting because Ncell isn't paying tax. Where were this union when the earthquake came? Why they didn't choose to help people that time. Why they didn't protest when government is choosing not to help people rebuild their homes? It seems to me they have motive on this one. They only protest because they had some greedy ambitions hidden beneath that. The people around don't even care to know the truth and spill out whatever they hear and run along.
I believe that Ncell may have some bad side regarding their service but on the other side Ncell is the reason we are able to communicate so frequently. And before we want to protest please do question the authority sometime. I wanted to start "Occupy Baneshwar" or "Occupy Baluwatar" campaign just to show these crook government that they are not doing enough. The real crooks.
