Why Nepal’s Constitution-making should be outsourced to Google.

Louise Aronson makes a convincing case for ´robot caregivers´ for old patients. Writing in The New York Times, the idea of robot caregivers, says the Associate Professor of Geriatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, "may sound like an oxymoron," but since most of us don´t live in an "ideal world" she suggests robots do this—often "tedious, awkwardly intimate and physically and emotionally exhausting"—work.

But Aronson perhaps does not know that taking care of the elderly is a walk in the park compared to the truly Herculean task of writing the Constitution of the newest federal democratic republic on the block. Just ask our overworked lawmakers. No fewer than 601 of our best and the brightest toiled, day and night, for four long years, and yet the Constitution eluded them. But Gorkhaliko chora-chori don’t give up so easily. No sir! They valiantly elected another Assembly to complete the remaining ‘10 percent’ and are reportedly having sleepless nights fretting how they can best serve the people. Exhausted by the morning, they rather sleep during the day, which is exactly why they are not seen inside the assembly halls during useless discussions. Poor sods! My heart goes out to them.
