राजनीतिक बिधार्थी संगठनको ठाँउमा ‘कलेज कल्याण परिषद” राखे कसो होला ?
जसमा ‘बिधार्थी, प्रशासक, प्रध्यापक, कर्मचारी, त्यो टोलका प्रतिनिधि अनि भुतपूर्व बिधार्थीका प्रतिनिधि’ एकै ठाँउमा बसी सबैका साझा समस्याका हल गरिने छ।
राजनीतिक संघ-संगठनको सट्टा काम अनुसारको क्लब प्रणाली राखे कसो होला ? उदाहरणको लागि उद्दमशील क्लब, कृकेट क्लब, पेशा परामर्श (career counseling) क्लब, वातावरण क्लब अादि खोलेर बिधार्थीको हितमा लाग्ने।
काम नपाएर राजनीतिको नाम लिएर गुण्डागर्दी संगठन खोलेर काम छैन नेपाल । योग्यतामुखी समाज बनाउने हो भने यो चाकडी-गुण्डागर्दी प्रथा त्यागी विवेकशील उपायहरु अपनाउनु बेश साथीहरु !
‘Sensational Media + Quick to judge masses = Shameful culture’
Whenever you hear, read or see something, we (amplifiers in media /social media) have a habit to spread the ‘gossip’. For your own good, do take a step back. If you have to judge, first ‘empathize’. We are all going through hard times surviving in this world. Lets not be hasty to judge and point fingers at people unless you see clear proofs. Truths are rarely black and white. In fact when anyone sets out to do something, we usually do it thinking we are doing something right…
Jumping into quick conclusion only hurts us more. The greatest gift we humans get is “empathy” and “logic”. Use them wisely.
These days I see us framing news in such a way that the masses perceives the news as the only truth.
Note to Amplifiers:
1) Be humble while amplifying.
2) Best to wait until you verify breaking news.
3)Best be a miser at amplifying bad news
In Nepal, there is an alarming trend.
Whenever there is an agitation, campaign or even a revolution in Nepal, it seems an effective strategy for those in power will water it down ( counter) by using the “buying time to do nothing” tactic (over and over).
What is ‘buying time to do nothing?’
It is ‘agreeing’ to build a ‘high level commission’ to investigate the matter at hand and use that time to essentially tire campaigners out.
Prominent News in Nepal usually reads,
“Deal reached! High level commission set up to investigate so and so…. ! “
Everyone becomes happy that solution is at hand! Citizens move on! Our supporters and fellow change-makers move on to other issues ! We (are forced to) move on !
The key for any change-maker at this time is : When ever a high level commission is set up, transform your task-force into a watchdog! Your first duty as a watchdog is to warn media, and all your supporters that this is the most dangerous time to slacken, give them examples of the past campaigns that failed when they slacked off at this stage and convince them this is actually the time to take campaign to step 2.
Make sure you do this:
- Set up an accountability seeking team (shadow task force) that has direct contact with the High level commission members and remind them to the point they know we are watching their every step.
- Ask for a phase wise plan that needs to be delivered. (it can’t be something like, please don’t bother us for 3 months while we work on it ). Form your own accountability task forces (shadow task forces). Divide them into smaller sub-task-force and involve your supporters in this process.
- Make high level commission members name and contact information public. Keep the campaign going on a smaller scale. Don’t stop.
- Make sure they give a weekly report to the accountability seeking team in your group). Initiate a countdown.
- Engage with media issuing weekly update on the commission’s work. Make sure media covers your issue periodically.
- Rally your supporters with regular updates and ask them to consistently write or talk about this issue to the their local crowd. Warn them not to fall under a false sense of security that the job will be done.
- Remind citizens and campaigners that its their own issue!
We need you to be Nepal’s watchdog! In a country where the system expect you to be a sheep, learning how to be a watchdog is perhaps the antidote to the sleeping tablet they feed us while they do their excesses!
“It is no use saying, ‘We are doing our best.’ You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.” (Winston Churchill)
- Past 601′s excuse for not delivering, ” We did our best.”
- Present 601′s excuse for not delivering (yet) : We are doing our best.”
- Nepal Electricity Commission when asked for why continuing 12 hours a day and more electricity problem ” We are doing our best.”
- Nepal Government on why they can’t keep their promises after they promise in just causes like “Adhikari couple case, Maina Sunuwar case, Sita Rai case, Sharada Bhusal jha and Dr Govinda Kc case” is that ” We are doing our best.”
- Nepal Police can’t catch criminals who live freely. The usual reply, ” We are doing our best… “
- Why is there no Truth and Reconciliation commision? “We are doing our best”
- Why does Tribhuwan Airport Bathroom stink ? ”We are doing our best”.
- Why Lazimpat road is still not finished after 24 months ? “We are doing our best”.
“We are doing our best” is the enemy of “We did it”. It shows one’s incompetency. Be careful of one who makes this excuse.
Leadership = Character + “Competency”
Leaders deliver ! (period)
Nepal needs networks of “hope” to counter the network of hopelessness that prevails in our society.
“Opportunity creating Network” We need a network of “hopeful” Nepali who want to create opportunities right here so that we can counter network of Nepali who believe that the only way to find opportunities is to leave our home, leave our city and leave our country.
“Rapid reaction Network”: We need a network of “hopeful” Nepali who stand against political corruption in institutions to counter the nexus of corrupt business, politicians and thugs who benefit from our silence.
“Career counseling Network”: We need a network of ‘successful’ Nepali who give the right career advice to counter the culture that advocates its brightest to study abroad (and tries to stop them from coming back by spreading negativity about Nepal)
“Civil society Network” We need a network of ‘hopeful’ professionals who know they need to cross professional boundaries to solve anything. Only this unity can counter our toxic culture where we expect for e.g, hospital problems solved only by medical practitioners ; justice problems by only lawyers or education problem by only teachers, or law/order problem solved only by the police.
“Leadership building Network”: We need a network of ‘generous’ elders who dare to stand back and groom-mold-push youths to lead institutions to counter the syndicates of elders who only want everyone else to follow them (right till their death).
“Network of positive Networks”: Nepal needs a network of Nepali who dare to create “networks of hope” to counter this “cancer of hopelessness” that rules over us now.
And so on….
