It is a battle for the dying,
And for the weak,
And for the helpless,
And for those whose voices are muted.
It is a song for the citizens,
A cry for the nations,
A plea by media stations,
And for those whose basic needs are given in rations
Who will rise up for this cause,
Whose voice will echo the need
For justice and resilience
In this do or die war against corruption?

Have we gone back to the days when government troops invaded campuses, beat, raped, shot and killed students and stripped professors naked? Have we gone back to the era, when the late Samuel K. Doe ordered “Minister Gray D.…Continue

In what appeared a rare and a bold judicial ruling in corruption case, the Supreme Court (SC) recently upheld the decision of the Special Court to convict former minister and Nepali Congress leader Chiranjibi Wagle on corruption charges. Mr Wagle, probably…Continue
