My Country Nepal
Nepal has recently been ranked the 3rd fastest growing economy in South Asia. Ironically, Nepal has also been ranked the 3rd most corrupted country in the whole of South Asia.As well all remember the devastating 2015 earthquake that shook our beautiful nation to the bone, killing over 9,000 people and displacing millions of Nepalis across the country.As many of us were busy helping anyone and everyone in that critical time of need, most of our political leaders were hiding behind safe houses or fleeing the country with their families.These are the same politicians we pay our taxes to, the same politicians that have never been stuck in the ring road traffic jam.The same politicians that have accumulated masses of land and properties, the same politicians that have time and time again make false promises for the 'betterment of our nation'.For over a decade we were led to believe that Nepal, a country with the second largest natural water resource in the whole wide world, wasn't able to provide our own nation with enough electricity. We're in the year 2017, and only now are we having discussions about the fact that we 'finally' have electricity. Unfortunately our fellow Nepalis living in remote areas (which can literally be a 45 min drive out of any major city in Nepal) cannot have the same conversation as the city dwellers. Again, we're living the year 2017.Individuals that think associating themselves with these so called politicians/ businessmen makes them a 'Damn Fool'. To know about the corruption and not to say anything makes them a silent henchmen. Just because one does not actively partake in corruption, staying silent is as cowardly and shameful as those actively involved. They say it's the youth that will change a nation, yet our youths are fleeing the nations. It's time to step up and bring about actual change. There will be a time when those crooked people will regret their wrong doings. It's time for the youth of our nation to stop being apathetic and start being the change we want to see for the future.
