Strange Bedfellows

The Nepal Embassy in London recently hosted a reception in honour of a visiting Maoist Minister and to attract UK investors to Nepal. The reception was also attended by Nepali businessmen including bankers.

A Maoist Minister, a Congress ambassador and Nepali capitalists - all wooing "Das Kapital" for Nepal. Quite a combine!

(thank you s. dai for this contribution)

Thats the way to go forward,I think.Deng the great pragmatic leader of China said,"It does not matter if a cat is black or white as long as it catches mice"
Maybe they are following Deng`s philosophy.

Nice perspective, Govind. Let us hope our Maoists are as pragmatic as Deng and not gung-ho like Mao.

Interesting event but the last line ...."for Nepal" doesn't fit. Its for them!!! The kangresi ambassador wants to keep his job and send on a percentage of the commission from selling 12A KPG, the maobadis want more businesses to fleece- its far more difficultf or foreigners to exit than enter - and the businessmen want to make their profits while doing the joint venture deal instead of profiting from its running. Where is Nepal???
