Question hour for our leaders and celebs

I would ask my question Bill Gates the key to his success because I am a computer student and by following his path, I may land up like him.

— Manish Kumar

Agrawal, Baphal

I would ask former US ambassador to Nepal James F Moriarty: What would be the strategic approaches to restore good governance, democratic peace and communal harmony in the country? Because our leaders are mired in corruption, dirty politics and are after the chair.

— Soni

I would like to ask Nelson Mandela the way to narrow down the gap between one’s commitment and action, as our leaders always make big commitments but when it comes to taking concrete actions, they are always behind.

— Pratap

My question would be to Nelson Mandela: “Have you visited a nation where people have not heard of you as yet?”

— Krishna Thapa,


I would like to ask ‘The Journalism Fraternity’ of Nepal when will they stop using the Press as a means to settle personal scores? The Press is being improperly used to blackmail and malign people of influence. “Would you pay me a sum or should I drag your name into a controversy, sir?” Hasn’t this been the norm of Nepali journalism of late? Many of our journalists are here with a purpose to be lured into someone’s cheap blame game and write every thing false as if stating that would make it true.

— Dr Salil Pradhan,


I would like to ask George W Bush how to be a great politician of the world.

— Dhrub Maharjan

The person whom I’d love to meet would be late Kurt Cobain. I’d ask him how he actually died? I still believe he was killed, and he would have cleared my doubts regarding it.

— Cobain fan

If I could ask one famous personality just one question, then I’d ask Mahatma Gandhi what made him change his mind about retaliating when he was thrown out of a train in South Africa by some racist? I would ask this because it is this change of mind, which brought about the downfall of the British empire and provided freedom to millions of people in India.

— Dr Ujjwal Bikram Khadka, Kathmandu

I would definitely ask that one question to famous hotel heiress Paris Hilton. “How can such a giraffe-figured, empty headed, party girl with a stupid looking Chihuahua be an American Sweetheart?”

— Suraj Rai,


I would like to ask Ramdev Baba how we teenagers can cope with nervousness, frustrations and depression and gain confidence to become a successful person, and acquire satisfaction and happiness in this challenging life. I have come to know that about 90 per cent of the teenagers of today’s world are suffering from frustration and depression.

— Yogendra Shrestha

If I could ask one question to a famous personality, then it would be Jwala Singh of JTMM. I’d ask him why are they trying to pose a hindrance in the development of Nepal?

— Aneesha Bhattarai

South Korea, Thailand, Singapore and Nepal were exactly in the same condition before 2017 BS, but the rest are much more developed now than Nepal, which is still one of the poorest countries in the world. Is this mainly due to monarchy, or lack of leadership, or corruption, or the combination of all? Which one scores the highest marks as the main reason behind all this? I would like to ask this question to the king of our country (one of the richest person in the world among the poorest people of the globe) and former prime minister Surya Bahadur Thapa.

— Janardan Mishra

My query would be to god Krishna. I would ask, “Why has he spread so much injustice in the world?”

— Shiva Pandey, Samakhusi

If I get a chance to ask a question, I would ask Bill Gates the tips that made him rich. It is not because I aspire to enlist my name on the list of world’s richest person but because of my feelings towards poor who cannot afford two square meals a day. If Gates shares the tips with me, I would share it with the poor and help them rise from the poverty level and make them cheerful.

— Ambika Pandey,


I would like to ask our Nepali Women Cricket Team skipper Nary Thapa from where has she got so much energy and power?

— Sumnima Khatri

My question would be to PM GP Koirala: “You’ve got what you wanted, so when are we going to get what we’ve been longing for all these years?”

— S Thapa
