I would like to agree with idea expressed by Ramesh Bdr Shrestha in his letter
“Overcome” (THT, Aug. 15, Page 8) that Nepali Congress and UML leaders’ assertion
predicting the incapability of the government of independent citizens to government the country and to conduct the elections in the present transitional periods in the country is pitiable. It seems that non-party government would prove to be more capable than any coalition governments showing the signs of furthering uncertainties with the threat of the doom of the country. I would like to opine that the President should immediately relieve the present coalition caretaker government by appointing a non-party government. UCPN (Maoist) has also indicated its support for the appointment of a non-party government.
Ex-Chief Justice Ram Prasad Shrestha could be a desirable choice by the President.
Ex-Chief Justice Shrestha is very admired for his attempts to clean the judiciary from
corruptions while he was in office.

It was sad and very unfortunate to see the political interference and influence in the
universities and campuses while appointing VC, campus chiefs and deans during the
recent years. Why is it happening so openly in the newly born Republic Nepal? What is the motive behind this shameless political game going on in the educational
institutions? Is it because the political ego of the leaders and their parties? Is there any
monetary involvement behind the chairs? Who benefits out of this dirty game? Why can’t these institutions be left on their own to fill the vacant positions based on the established
Resident doctors and students at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) have warned of obstructing all services, except the emergency room, if the university did not revoke its decision to appoint a “junior” doctor as the new dean, as
reported in “TUTH docs to close services from today” (THT, Aug. 15, Page 2). Paying no attention to Dr. Govind K.C’s fast-unto-death protesting political influence in the
appointment of high level officials at the TUTH, the government has appointed UML affiliated junior doctor to the vacant post of Dean. Why can’t the political parties mind their own business and let these institutions run free from any political game?

I fully agree with Prakash Sparsha’s “Losing interest in studies” (THT, Aug 15, Page 8), as he has concisely portrayed the current trend of students in losing interest in studies and diverting their minds in something else. We can see our kids—who are just keen on amusement or parties and gadgets but completely neglecting their studies.
They are often found in parks, discos or cinemas rather in schools or colleges. All this requires disciplinary checks to prevent them from diverting their minds unnecessarily on useless things. Studies are necessary, entertainment during leisure time is also needed.
