Nepal, formally a unitarily governed kingdom, is now preparing to become a federalist republic, and the debate around federalism is in the center of an ongoing constituent assembly. At this juncture, it is crucial to determine the shape our Federalism will take.

The Coño regime is up, and certain coño palace officials are true to their coño colors: lotharios who would play with girls and even pass them on to their pals after using the sex goddesses for some time. A top level official unabashedly exhibits his true colors in the presidential palace, disturbs palace workers at night to prepare delicacies for drinking session, and may we not add some girls in his company or so?

I am bit confused with the country (Sri Lanka) situation due to the UN Report on war crimes over Sri Lanka. It is shamed to see some pro government Nationalist protests all over the country. Government is using the issue to getting back war mentality in to the general public.
Even after two years after the War the government still trying to maintain fear among the citizen of the country. For the moment some of LTTE leaders are support the government. But still they try to show some…Continue

My humble tribute to Baba.
God is the name of good work who ever has done for humanity. we can not judge or define what is god ?but it is true if some one do good work then people pray him as a god i don't want to argue wither he was a human being or a god, but see what a person did if he has done good things for all human being- for good he will be recognized as a god. And if god has done a inhuman things then he will be remembered as a devil .
