Sunkoshi tragedy exposes dark side of Nepal's first literate district

OM ASTHA RAI
SINDHUPALCHOWK, Sept 2: A man limped toward a makeshift camp set up by the Nepal Army (NA) to distribute relief packages to the victims of recent Sunkoshi landslide. The man, who identified himself as Mangal Tamang from Ramche VDC-5 of Sindhupalchowk district, held a card out of his shirt´s pocket and slung it over his neck, just before he entered into the camp.

It was the first evening of September and the sun was about to set in just half an hour. But, the camp was still teeming with people desperate to grab a few kilos of food grains, which NA personnel have been distributing to the landslide victims for almost a month now. [More]

  How long will Thabang remain 'Communist'?  
  BY HIRA BAHADUR GHARTIMAGAR  
 
Communist Ideology was introduced in Thabang, later the Maoists’ place of origin, in 2012 BS (1955 AD). Since then, Thabang has always been for one or the other communist party. While Thabang’s consistent support for the left is viewed as historic, questions are emerging as to how long its loyalty for the Communists would remain intact in the competitive multiparty society.

Mohan Bikram Singh of CPN–Mashal attributes Thabang people’s support for the communists to their deep faith in the ideology. “Why these people have remained supporters of communists for so long is because of their faith in communism. Here it has become a sort of tradition for one to be for communists actually,” he said.
