The Prime Minister’s return

“ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL, BUT SOME ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS”, wrote that brilliant satirist George Orwell in Animal Farm way back in 1945. Perhaps he never came to Nepal, or was he actually born in Nepal (or else how did he know what we’re practicing in the 21st century)?
It was interesting to see the Prime Minister’s return to the capital today evening. The PM’s motorcade makes a sight to witness, when Tinkune-Baneshwor road, devoid of working streetlights, is just lit by the surrounding vehicles. More importantly, if you fail to notice, it’s even more interesting to see the traffic policemen hustling the other vehicles to the adjoining lanes. Such is their authority at those in these vehicles, and the love for the country’s top executive’s authority, you would be happy saying, “thank god, I’m just watching from the window and not in one of those vehicles.”
