I was wondering if there is any book in PM Sushil Koirala?

I was very intrigued how he patiently waited three months to appoint Bam Dev gautam as his home minister. That appointment immediately reminded me of Abraham Lincoln's appointment of William Seward as his Secretary of State. Just like William seward, Bam Dev Gautam was a powerful and influential political leader in Nepal and a rival of Sushil Koirala politically. At that moment I instantly knew that the government of Sushil Koirala would promulgate the constitution of Nepal. It was one of those a-ha moment. I shared this with my family and they didn't seem very interested in my insights. I went to Nepal in 2014 to get married. When I was in Nepal, I told my uncles that Sushil Koirala will promulgate the much awaited constitution. I also shared the reason how I came to that conclusion and told them about Abraham Lincoln's cabinet. They laughed at me. That didn't affect me because in my head it was crystal clear. For me it was PM Sushil Koirala's patience in appointing his cabinet members spoke volume about his character, his selflessness. He didn't rush to appoint anyone under pressure in a fear of losing his prime minister ship. I remember the parties putting pressure him to choose his cabinets soon at the time, but he didn't give in to the pressure and chose the right person for the job Bam Dev Gautam, a powerful politician. By this article I am by no means trying to compare Sushil Koirala with Abraham Lincoln, I am merely interested in knowing how was Sushil Koirala as a person. Was he as simple as the media portrayed him? Please share your experience if you knew/met Sushil Koirala.

I think you are giving too much importance of the appointment of Bam Dev as home minister. If played a good role, but this wasn't the decisive move. There were many other things that came together, including the urgency and closeness that came as an aftermath to the earthquake. That was the right time to strike the axe and they did it. Bam Dev was powerful, but not as much powerful as you are giving him the credit for.

I agree that there were so many other things that came together at the time. I think that Sushil Koirala won the psychological battle when he waited three months to appoint his cabinet members. After that he had already won over the opposition through his selflessness. And Bam Dev Gautam, a politician known for getting things done, on his side made it easier for his government to get the majority of votes. I am giving credit to Koirala's character, leadership and patience, and understanding of urgency of situation when the time was right.

There certainly is some merit to your point, but as you have agreed - there were many other things. In my opinion, Prachanda was more instrumental on this than Bam Dev. Call them corrupt, bad..whatever..the process wouldn't have gone through if Maoists were against it. It could be true that Sushil's appointment of Bad Dev softened Prachanda's stance, but Bad Dev's mere appointment didn't get it done.

The other day, I saw prachanda openly challenging judicial system to arrest him. And there is no maika-laal in nepal yet to do so. I think he is the only powerful person in nepal right now. It is better to know how you use your words otherwise I would laugh at it too. :p
When I think of baam and shushil, the only words that come to my mind are 'notorious', 'infamous' etc.

i just searched through my emails to get password, and log in here just to say,

"like i said before, he was a dementia patient. if you watch him talk, he will speak something, wonder, forget what he is talking about, and just meaningless conversation"

i wouldnt put such high regards for पागल prime minister (not refering to his good days, just last 15 months of his life)

Thanks for the comments! That's exactly my point. His patience (you may call it slowness) provided much needed space for other leaders to really look at the issues and work together to come to the common ground. His simple, low key personality wasn't intimidating to work with. This character probably made the other leaders feel more powerful and in control. I am not saying that he did everything by himself. I am saying that he provided an environment for the leaders to work together.

Sometimes I wonder if he sacrificed his image and name knowingly when he gave little competition to PM KP Oli. It was almost certain that he would lose the vote against KP Oli. That competition definitely provided much needed confidence boost for PM Oli to navigate Nepal during very hard times of unofficial Indian blockade. You treasure a trophy that you won more than a trophy that you just got for nothing. Great leaders are not usually powerful leaders, but they are humble and down to earth regular looking people. For e.g. Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi. Looks can be deceptive. It could be all coincidence or intentional. I guess the history will tell.

Obviously it is one persceptive.. I am not claiming to be 100% accurate. It could be worth contemplating and looking into this.
