LETTERS: Focus on old deals

This has reference to the news story “Implementing past pacts high on agenda” (THT, September 12, Page 1).

As per the government official website Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal will be leaving for India on September 15. He should not repeat the same mistake the past government did with jumbo delegates.

Instead, he should take ‘core members of business people’ and ‘some high-level important bureaucrats’ to make his visit a success.

No nation can move forward without economic prosperity which is a challenging task at a time when the country is in a political transition and uncertainty.

Stability in system and government are the two prerequisites that lead the country towards the path of economic progress, wellbeing of the people, better health and education and services.

One of the major problems of the country has been facing since the fall of Rana regime is the short-lived governments which have not completed their five-year term. PM Dahal has said that he will go to the southern neighbor with a new shopping list.

He should rather focus on getting the old bilateral agreements implemented.

The Pancheshwor High Dam, Upper Karnali and Arun III are the major hydel projects which should be executed at the earliest so that both the countries can benefit immensely from economic growth.

I was exhilarated and at the same time perturbed after reading a fantastic topics article “Guiding students” (THT, September 7, Page 8).

I enjoyed reading this mesmerising and mind blowing article since the writer is in favour of child-friendly, students-centred and result-oriented education.

On contrary,I got frustrated after realizing the challenges that developing countries like ours can face for the successful implementation of the comprehensive and practical education in the course of meeting a minimum standard to compete with the highly qualitative and advanced education system of several highly-developed countries.

Needless to say, today’s students need more value-based education that will make them self-reliant.

True education connects the mind and heart and makes one able to tackle the problems confronting everyday life. We cannot move forward unless we focus on technical, vocational and skilled-oriented education that makes everybody employed and self-dependent.

It is certain that the existing education system of Nepal is in no way going to benefit the students of today’s generation which is techno-savvy and well connected with the entire world due to access to internet and better communication.

We have seen that the most talented and learned students have brain-drained to greener pastures in search of better life and opportunity.
