Hi all
not much of a sajha participant, but I read views and opinions. Things I like about sajha is that how people see same thing with different perspective. So I thought of bringing all perspectives onto one thread focused on our country. I don’t know if people have made this attempt before.
In my opinion what matters most is not how much wealth you can send home, but much diverse knowledge you can take with you to your home country. By saying that I don’t mean that we ourselves are way behind than others – every thing has its own beauty.
So please if you could spare little moment to share what have you learnt being in the foreign country and would to see in the new Nepal if that was ever built.
I live in the US and I can share few things that I think is pretty awesome and definitely want to take back home.
  1. The way government feels accountable for the citizen. (I know there are topics to disagree here, but we have to agree that citizens have better lives here if they choose to)
  2. The power of middle class to run the economy.
  3. Savings does not do well to the country. You need to spend in order to keep the economy moving. This way we can create jobs. And if 2 people in the house earns, I am sure there won’t be any unhappy homes (financially).
  4. Education. What I like here is how government spends money in free education (K12). You can still get loans/scholarships for college education.
  5. Definitely roads.
  6. Finding the strength of the nation. I believe America sells American dream and lure all the brains here, promising them a better lives. In turn, America benefits with their innovative ideas. The strength of Nepal as I see is tourism. Government should definitely invest money in tourism.
I don’t dream of my country to become the wealthiest and powerful country like the US. But I dream of making my country a beautiful place to live in. my idols are some of the small European countries.

 I agree with Poonhill and others.  One more thing I would like to add is "Positive Thinking".  I am pretty old (in my early 30s).  I have seen the progress made by my high-school friends.  One thing I have noticed is that positive thinkers (with an average IQ) have outsmarted pessimists (with a high IQ).  On average, americans are positive thinkers.  We should learn to be positive thinkers.  We, Nepalese, are pretty cool but we are not positive thinkers.

The first thing I would love to take from this country to my home is its police uniform. Them blue uniform Nepal police wear right now make them look like an effing clown getting ready for his act.

I am pretty old (in my early 30s)...

Early 30s...old? Aba chai malai chinta lagyo..I don't think fellow american consider this as an old age. I have seen people of late 50s/early 60s very healthy and still go to work. I would like to take this message HOME: Old age in never a barrier for doing work; the big picture iis remain healthy.

No offense..Just a thought!

 @jangali manaab,

Thanks. You inspired me, bro:).  I used to visit sajha a lot 6-7 years ago. My impression is that this site is mostly visited by undergrads in their early 20s.  Since I am in early 30, I am feeling that I am pretty old for the current sajha generation.  trying to act like budapaka for sajha generation...haha

 @truenepali dude-well said

i also like the attitude of americans (educated) for others. thats why i think education is one of the basic infrastructure that the nation has to make strong.

I would say some level of professionalism and courtesy. There's dearth of it, even in the refined offices of KTM.

You go to a meeting, a person is talking on his mobile totally unaware of the ongoing meeting. The hakims treat the guards like a 2nd class citizen. Imagine, what motivation will the guard have to work there? you try to plan something nicely, everyone will weigh in like "bhai halcha ni, yestai gardim....Kehi hudaina." And when things fail, noone is willing to be accountable and take responsibility.

I really hope the new generation cultivate this sense of professionalism from the western countries.

People treat you with respect here, be it whatever you do they address you with sir or miss. I dont think one can find the same thing in Nepal, probably that would be one of the thing people can learn.
There are so many things I wish Nepal had, or implements. I think people should start off with respecting things they have, and think wisely rather than acting violently, and destroying things they have.

Religion is the most powerful tool. There is nothing wrong with our faith but the practical aspect (not the moral) that stems from the belief is basically useless. One thing that I wish is our religious institution and religious leaders could do - preach social awareness that can help the society. During the peak important holidays if they could stop vomiting the same old prayers and tell people to go out and collect the trash and clean the neighbourhood, be resposible for your own actions, go show support to the police office who has been hurt in the line of duty,help the burnt victim, flood victims. Create fear if they don't.  People listen and they fear God, they will do it.If we could divert our religious energy to something useful instead of chanting prayers to a stone, that can bring a very important change, SLOWLY.
Mind you, no law or education can compare to your own awareness. Writing a perfect law on a piece of paper means nothing if people have no conciousness to follow it. Knowledge is good, but useless, if you don't use it to create what you envision.

I concur. Also to add, instead of performing cheap magic tricks like vomiting out shiva lingas and giving to people as if it is some holy grail, they could do a community a big service by preaching about real issues and problems. But then, that might not rake in money!

 I agree with Middle class run economy, free education, infrastructure, innovations, budwiser,corona, J lo, Kim K,  and all those good things. Send them back home ASAP. But Government feels accountable for citizens, work ethics, law and order, people being nice, saying thank you and those stuff. I don't know which part of USA you guys live here in NY it is like finding a bigfoot. 

My personal opinion everything is fine in Nepal even the political system, except politician we don't have right people to run the country. Instead of taking anything back home we should bring all those old mentality netas from panche, kangresi, Yemale, Maobadi, Madhese, Janajati everyone of them here to never let them go back. Fresh start of new political era. (Just a wild dream)
